My One and Only...

Salok Mehla 3 II

Salok, Third Mehla:
Waaho! Waaho! Is the Bani, the Word, of the Formless Lord. There is no other as great as He is.
Waaho! Waaho! The Lord is unfathomable and inaccessible. Waaho! Waaho! He is the True One.
Waaho! Waaho! He is the self-existent Lord. Waaho! Waaho! As He wills, so it comes to pass.
Waaho! Waaho! Is the Ambrosial Nectar of the Naam, the Name of the Lord, obtained by the Gurmukh.
Waaho! Waaho! This is realized by His Grace, as He Himself grants His Grace.
O Nanak, Waaho! Waaho! This is obtained by the Gurmukhs, who hold tight to the Naam, night and day. II1II


This Shabad is by Guru Amar Daas Ji in Raag Gujri on Pannaa 515

The stages of Sunneyeh (listening to gurbani indeep meditation in the Sunn Smadhi) and Munneyaa (Belief) as described in Gurbani are very high spiritual states. Full belief and commitment, full faith and trust, full devotion and love, takes us to higher and higher realms of eternal truth and spirituality. As our love keeps on enhancing we keep on doing more and more Gurbani in our day to day life. We keep enhancing the practice of Gurbani in our day to day deeds, actions, reactions, thoughts, mental outlook and behavior. We keep on progressing faster and faster on this path to Sach Khand (God’s realm of Truth).

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is our Guru Ji, the one and only. And Gurbani has been described as the Guru in the Gurbani itself. It has been called the “Puran Braham Gyan” and the “Gyaan Saroop of Akal Purakh”:

BANI GURU GURU HAI BANI VICH BANI AMRIT SAAREY;
Bani is the Guru, and the Guru is Bani. Within Bani is all the Amrit.

VAHO VAHO BANI NIRANKAAR HAI.
Wondrous, wondorus Bani is Formless.


But the question we need to ask ourselves is what state are we operating in? After pronouncing that Sri Guru Granth Sahib is our Guru, are we in the state of listening, accepting, or doing ? Let us put it like this:

Are we listening to the Guru?
Are we accepting the Guru's word?
Are we doing what the Guru is telling us to do?
