Dhan Dhan Guru De Pyarai Daughter of Sri Guru Gobind Sahib Ji Daughter of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji Fearless Warriors Courageous Mothers Determined Daughters They suffered great in-humane tortures Watch their children bleed to death Witnessed the brutal murder of their husbands Yet, they fought for freedom and faith Remembered Guru Ji in every breath And were an Inspiration to all Sikhs We are a Kaur Princess We are a Brave Lioness We are the Daughters of the Khalsa

Siree Raag, Third Mehla:

Emotional attachment to Maya is created by my God; He Himself misleads us through illusion and doubt.

The self-willed manmukhs perform their actions, but they do not understand; they waste away their lives in vain.

Gurbani is the Light to illuminate this world; by His Grace, it comes to abide within the mind. II1II

O mind, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and find peace.

Praising the Perfect Guru, you shall easily meet with that God. II1IIPauseII

Doubt departs, and fear runs away, when you focus your consciousness on the Lord's Feet.

The Gurmukh practices the Shabad, and the Lord comes to dwell within the mind.

In the mansion of the home within the self, we merge in Truth, and the Messenger of Death cannot devour us. II2II

Naam Dayv the printer, and Kabeer the weaver, obtained salvation through the Perfect Guru.

Those who know God and recognize His Shabad lose their ego and class consciousness.

Their Banis are sung by the angelic beings, and no one can erase them, O Siblings of Destiny! II3II

The demon's son Prahlaad had not read about religious rituals or ceremonies, austerity or self-discipline; he did not know the love of duality.

Upon meeting with the True Guru, he became pure; night and day, he chanted the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

He read only of the One and he understood only the One Name; he knew no other at all. II4II

The followers of the six different life-styles and world-views, the Yogis and the Sanyaasees have gone astray in doubt without the Guru.

If they serve the True Guru, they find the state of salvation; they enshrine the Dear Lord within their minds.

They focus their consciousness on the True Bani, and their comings and goings in reincarnation are over. II5II

The Pandits, the religious scholars, read and argue and stir up controversies, but without the Guru, they are deluded by doubt.

They wander around the cycle of 8.4 million reincarnations; without the Shabad, they do not attain liberation.

But when they remember the Name, then they attain the state of salvation, when the True Guru unites them in Union. II6II

In the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, the Name of the Lord wells up, when the True Guru unites us in His Sublime Love.

I offer my mind and body, and I renounce my selfishness and conceit; I walk in Harmony with the Will of the True Guru.

I am forever a sacrifice to my Guru, who has attached my consciousness to the Lord. II7II

He alone is a Brahmin, who knows the Lord Brahma, and is attuned to the Love of the Lord.

God is close at hand; He dwells deep within the hearts of all. How rare are those who, as Gurmukh, know Him.

O Nanak, through the Naam, greatness is obtained; through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, He is realized. II8II5II22II

Shabad is by Guru Amar Daas Ji in Siree Raag on Anng 67
