Any scholar can do simple shabad meanings (Lafzee or Akhree meanings) but really only such Gursikh who has reached the avastha that is described in this shabad can do justice when doing the meanings of this shabad. Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh jee in one of his most mystical books - Anhad Shabad Dasam Duaar - has done detailed interpretation of this shabad. My humble suggestion is to refer to that book (the original Punjabi version) for details on this shabad.

This shabad describes that the topmost spiritual state of a Gursikh. It talks of the place where Dasam Duaar is and what happens when Dasam Duaar opens. It talks about gupt stuff that like "Pachham pher chaRavai soor" i.e. then the light shines from the West side of one's Dasam Duaar. What can we mortal beings understand about this shabad.

The beginning of this shabad talks about three mystical nerves called Ida, Pingula and Sukhmana. In the bottom part of the body there is Kundalini and this kundalini has to be awakened and brought to Dasam Duaar through the Sukhmana path. A Gursikh does not try to awaken the Kundalini and nor does he try to bring it to Dasam Duaar through the Sukhmana. All this happens automatically as written in Gurbani:

Kundalini Surjhee Sat Sangat, Parmanand Guru Mukh Machaa ||
(The Kundalini automatically rises in Satsangat while having darshan of Guru Sahib resulting in great Anand and lightful bliss).

Jogis try to awaken and rise the Kundalini by doing various Yogic positions and other Yogic practices. If the Kundalini awakens and instead of going up through the Sukhmana energy channel goes through Ida or Pingula, it creates major problems for the practicing seeker. Ida is on the left side of Sukhmana and represents the Moon energy while Pingula is on the right side of Sukhmana representing the sun energy. The Pranayaam, one of the breathing exercises of Yogis, involves pulling the breath up the Ida energy channel and trying to station it in the Sukhmana energy channel and then releasing it down through Pingula. Doing this is said to bring immense energy to the seeker.

There was a very famous yogi called Gopi Chand or something like this. He was from Kashmir. Due to his Yogic bhagti of previous lives, he at an early age, awakened his kundalini with just little yogic practice. He could see light and everything but it was a terribly painful experience. He asked many mystics but none could answer his questions because these so called big mystics had not reached his level. Awakening and rising the Kundalini is a rare thing. Finally, Gopi Chand found out that though he had awakened his kundalini but he had risened it through the wrong channel. Instead of rising it through Sukhmana he did it through Ida or perhaps Pingula. This created major problems for him. Couple of decades of his life were wasted and he had terribly painful experiences. Instead of giving him Anand, he went through an ordeal. He did figure it out in his later life and wrote his experiences in detail.

Compared with the above, "Har ko Naam Sada Sukhdaayee" (The Naam of Hari is always sukh-giving). Whether you are japping Naam correctly or wrongly, it can never harm you. It's always pleasure giving. Ida, Pingula, Sukhmana all come to the right place for the Gursikh. Kundalini automatically awakens and rises up. The four stages of Sufis namely Shariat, Tareekat, Maarfat and Hakeekat are automatically achieved and surpassed. All a Gursikh needs to do is japp Naam through Gurmat. So says baani.

Daas,
Kulbir Singh
