Gurmat Ramza - Part 2

Below is a humble attempt to translate next 5 Ramza written by Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh jee. Bhai Sahib wrote in total 31 Gurmat Ramza. In the coming days we will attempt to translate the rest of the Ramza. Bhai Sahib has expressed some very profound spiritual thoughts in these Ramza. They are highly beneficial to the seekers of Vaheguru. Reading these Ramza, inspire one to Japp Naam with added vigour.


------------------Translation Begins-----------------------

6) The form of Real Knowledge (Tatt Gyaan): The form of real knowledge appears or manifests in the Hirda (a place, short distance above Naabhi), then it illuminates the inside, as per this Gurvaak:

ਜਾ ਕੈ ਰਿਦੈ ਬਿਸ੍ਵਾਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਆਇਆ ॥
ਤਤੁ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਨਿ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਾਇਆ ॥

7) Self Realization: After getting concentration in Naam, self realization occurs, as per this Gurvaak:

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਆਪੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਸੰਤਹੁ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮਿ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥੮॥


8) Greatest Hukam (order) – Sifat Salaah (Praising Vaheguru): Guru Sahib’s greatest Hukam is Sifat-Salaah i.e. Naam Simran. Per Gurvaak:

ਏਕੋ ਨਾਮੁ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਦੀਆ ਬੁਝਾਇ ਜੀਉ ॥੫॥

Therefore obeying the Hukam actually means to chant Naam, or to earn the profit of Gurmantr or Gur-Shabad.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਆਪਣਾ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਰਿਆ ਸਬਦਿ ਕਸਵਟੀ ਲਾਇ ॥

Meaning, through the touchstone of Paaras roop Gur-shabad (Naam), Gurmukhs bring their mind under control; this is what is meant by destruction of Haume (ego). By taking refuge of Satguru and by being at the doorstep of Guru and then through Gurmat Naam alone does the mind get purified; as is mentioned in the following Gurvaak:

ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਗੁਰ ਸਰਣਿ ਆਵੈ ਤਾ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਹੋਇ ॥

Otherwise the Nigura (Guru less) person does not even have Naam, then how can he purify his mind, as is mentioned in the Gurvaak:

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਥਕੇ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਸਕੀ ਧੋਇ ॥੧॥


9) Reading Gurmat books is a mean of controlling the mind:

One of the means of controlling the mind is reading Gurmat books. For this reason reading Gurmat related books don’t go in vain. Reading non-Sikhi are definitely a waste because by reading them one cannot derive any spiritual taste nor they provide any mean to control the mind:

ਪੜਣਾ ਗੁੜਣਾ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਕੀ ਕਾਰ ਹੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਵਿਕਾਰੁ ॥
ਹਉਮੈ ਵਿਚਿ ਸਭਿ ਪੜਿ ਥਕੇ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥
ਸੋ ਪੜਿਆ ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਬੀਨਾ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦਿ ਕਰੇ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥

10) By chanting Naam, vices are eliminated:

By earning Gurshabad i.e. by chanting Naam, vices get eliminated because Naam is a medicine:

ਨਾਮ ਅਉਖਧੁ ਜਿਹ ਰਿਦੈ ਹਿਤਾਵੈ ॥ ਤਾਹਿ ਰੋਗੁ ਸੁਪਨੈ ਨਹੀ ਆਵੈ ॥

ਭਰੀਐ ਮਤਿ ਪਾਪਾ ਕੈ ਸੰਗਿ ॥ ਓਹੁ ਧੋਪੈ ਨਾਵੈ ਕੈ ਰੰਗਿ ॥

This does not make sense that first your vices should get eliminated and then you can attain Naam.

-----------------------Translation Ends--------------------------------

More to follow soon.
