This Shabad is by Guru Amar Daas Ji in Siree Raag on Pannaa 35

Siree Raag, Third Mehla:
Consider the time and the moment-when should we worship the Lord?
Night and day, one who is attuned to the Name of the True Lord is true.
If someone forgets the Beloved Lord, even for an instant, what sort of devotion is that?
One whose mind and body are cooled and soothed by the True Lord-no breath of his is wasted. II 1 II
O my mind, meditate on the Name of the Lord.
True devotional worship is performed when the Lord comes to dwell in the mind. II1IIPauseII
With intuitive ease, cultivate your farm, and plant the Seed of the True Name.
The seedlings have sprouted luxuriantly, and with intuitive ease, the mind is satisfied.
The Word of the Guru's Shabad is Ambrosial Nectar; drinking it in, thirst is quenched.
This true mind is attuned to Truth, and it remains permeated with the True One. II2II
In speaking, in seeing and in words, remain immersed in the Shabad.
The Word of the Guru's Bani vibrates throughout the four ages. As Truth, it teaches Truth.
Egotism and possessiveness are eliminated, and the True One absorbs them into Himself.Those who remain lovingly absorbed in the True One see the Mansion of His Presence close at hand. II3II
By His Grace, we meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord. Without His Mercy, it cannot be obtained.
Through perfect good destiny, one finds the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, and one comes to meet the True Guru.
Night and day, remain attuned to the Naam, and the pain of corruption shall be dispelled from within.
O Nanak, merging with the Shabad through the Name, one is immersed in the Name. II4II22II55II


When any one wanted to be with Sri Guru Amar Das Ji and be in His Darshan, they had to comply with some simple instructions.

First, they had to eat from the Guru's kitchen with all his other guests regardless of status or gender. Women were asked to remove their veils. The Raja of Haripur was no exception. He came with his entourage of wives, and all were asked to have a meal first. The youngest wife was very shy and refused to remove her veil. The Guru asked her what the problem was. In those days, women never ate with men and were certainly not used to he spoken to by men.

...When she came closer to pay her respects to Sri Guru Amar Das Ji, she was adviced by the Guru, to stop the viel-custom, as it is a sign of Slavery…

The poor girl was totally confused and embarrassed. She ran out to hide herself. The Raja wanting to please the Guru, feigned disgust with her behavior and abandoned her altogether. Thus, when she returned home, she was left behind, alone and frightened. This was 500 years ago, when women were not able to work and support themselves independently. This poor girl was far away from family and friends. She hid in the forest, and people said she went totally insane.

The Guru and his Sangat had many disciples and they all did their chores together and listened to the Guru's teaching. There was one man who came from a place near Shaikhupura which is now in Pakistan. He left his home and joined the Guru's camp at Goindwal. He took upon himself the responsibility of bringing firewood daily for the kitchen. One day, while he was in the forest, he had a terrible clash with an insane woman.

She was filthy, her clothes were torn, and her hair was matted. He startled her when he accidentally tripped over her. She reacted by screaming and biting and clawing. He managed to subdue her with kind words and a strong arm. Covering her with his shawl, he brought her to the Guru.

After taking a bath and eating well in the kitchen, the lady was invited to join the congregation and listen to the prayers and the teachings. A great peace entered her soul and she was able to slowly regain her strength and self-esteem.

She was once the Rani of Haripur, but no one knew her real name. As she grew stronger and joined the others in chores as well as prayers, she was often heard muttering "sachan sach" meaning "truth is truth". This soon became her nickname. As time passed, she became totally cured, a confident GurSikh; Physically & Mentally Healthy. The Guru was impressed with her commitment and devotion. She eventually married the gentleman who had rescued her against her will from the forest. Mata Sachan Sach was made a masand and sent with her husband to his home in west-Punjab to preach the word of God.

Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji…

Bibi Sachan Sach Kaur,
The Daughter of the Guru,
How fortunate she was to
Receive pure and inspirational
Blessing for our Guru Ji
To Terminate the Veil-Custom...


Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji
