Sayth Nanak 9, Guru Tegh Bahadur

From SikhiWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
The 9th Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur set a new precedence for the world in general and for the Sikhs specifically, when he sacrificed his life to defend the rights of others to practice their religion and culture.

His son, Guru Gobind Singh had this to say about his father:

"He burst the bond of mortal clay, and went to the abode of God.
No one has ever performed an act as noble, as did Tegh Bahadur.
With the departure of Tegh Bahadar, the world was stricken with sorrow.
A wail of horror was grasped on this saddened earth,
while a victor's welcome hailed by the dwellers of heaven."


"He protected the forehead mark and sacred thread (of the Hindus) which marked a great event in the Iron age. For the sake of saints, he laid down his head without even a sign. (13)
For the sake of Dharma, he sacrificed himself. He laid down his head but not his creed. The saints of the Lord abhor the performance of miracles and malpractices. (14)"

(Bachitar Natak)

ਜੈਜਾਵੰਤੀ ਮਹਲਾ 9 ॥

ਰੇ ਮਨ ਕਉਨ ਗਤਿ ਹੋਇ ਹੈ ਤੇਰੀ ॥ ਇਹ ਜਗ ਮਹਿ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ੝ ਸੋ ਤਉ ਨਹੀ ਸ੝ਨਿਓ ਕਾਨਿ ॥ ਬਿਖਿਅਨ ਸਿਉ ਅਤਿ ਲ੝ਭਾਨਿ ਮਤਿ ਨਾਹਿਨ ਫੇਰੀ ॥1॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਮਾਨਸ ਕੋ ਜਨਮ੝ ਲੀਨ੝ ਸਿਮਰਨ੝ ਨਹ ਨਿਮਖ ਕੀਨ੝ ॥ ਦਾਰਾ ਸ੝ਖ ਭਇਓ ਦੀਨ੝ ਪਗਹ੝ ਪਰੀ ਬੇਰੀ ॥1॥

ਨਾਨਕ ਜਨ ਕਹਿ ਪ੝ਕਾਰਿ ਸ੝ਪਨੈ ਜਿਉ ਜਗ ਪਸਾਰ੝ ॥ ਸਿਮਰਤ ਨਹ ਕਿਉ ਮ੝ਰਾਰਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਜਾ ਕੀ ਚੇਰੀ ॥2॥3॥

naanak jan kehi pukaar supanai jio jag pasaar || simarath neh kio muraar maaeiaa jaa kee chaeree ||2||3||

Jaijaavantee, Ninth Mehla:

O mortal, what will your condition be? In this world, you have not listened to the Lord's Name. You are totally engrossed in corruption and sin; you have not turned your mind away from them at all. ||1||Pause||

You obtained this human life, but you have not remembered the Lord in meditation, even for an instant. For the sake of pleasure, you have become subservient to your woman, and now your feet are bound. ||1||

Servant Nanak proclaims that the vast expanse of this world is just a dream. Why not meditate on the Lord? Even Maya is His slave. ||2||3||

Jaitsree, Ninth Mehla:

O mind, embrace true contemplation. Without the Lord's Name, know that this whole world is false. ||1||Pause||

The Yogis are tired of searching for Him, but they have not found His limit. You must understand that the Lord and Master is near at hand, but He has no form or feature. ||1||

The Naam, the Name of the Lord is purifying in the world, and yet you never remember it. Nanak has entered the Sanctuary of the One, before whom the whole world bows down; please, preserve and protect me, by Your innate nature. ||2||3||
