SGGS Angg 861.

Raag Gaund M.4

A jeev isteri is at breaking point. She is deeply in love with her Beloved, and the loving Arrows of Naam have pierced her heart. She expresses her anguish at not yet having seen her Beloved.

My mind yearns so deeply for the Lord’s Darshan, like a thirsty person without water.

“Har Darshan ko mera mann baho taptay jio trikhavant bin neer.”

My mind has been pierced by the Arrow (Shabads) of the Lord’s Love; the Lord God knows my anguish, and the deep pain within my mind.

“Mere mann prem laggo Har teer; hamri bedhan Har Prabh jaane mere mann antar ki pirh.”(rahao).

Anyone who tells me Stories of my Beloved Lord is my brother, my friend.

“Mere Har Pritam ki koyi baat sunavhe so bhai so mera bir.”

Come, join me my companions, let us speak of the Lord’s Glorious Praises and follow the comforting Advice of the True Guru.

“Mil mil sakhi gunn kaho mere Prabh ke leh Satgur ki matt dheer.”

Please fulfill the wishes of servant Nanak. It is only with Your Blessed Darshan, that my body will find peace.

“Jan Nanak ki Har aas pujavho Har Darshan shaant sareer.”
