Immortal Gift of Holy Kirtan

Kirtan restores the forgotten and lost glory of the soul. In the ecstasy of holy Kirtan, ‘I’ ego melts and gets dissolved in the infinity of Supreme Nam. ‘I’ ego melts and gets dissolved in “Thou” and that is the most wonderful spiritual experience of this holy Kirtan...

Of inestimable significance is the composition of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Divine Poetry. Lovers of God invariably choose to express and communicate their mystic experiences in this language of love, language of spirit. Musicality adopted in the composition is also unique. It awakens deeper layers of human heart and consciousness. It encompasses what is otherwise indescribable and incommunicable. Divine wisdom is laced with sweat melodious fragrance. This divine melody tunes the soul with Rhythm Eternal.

It is all composed in mystic poetry. It was cast into 31 musical measures (Ragas). It is a natural flow of the divine ecstasy of Lovers of God. Language used being the spoken language of the people is simple and easily understandable. Music is the medium of expression of deep spirituality. It is natural outcome and flow of religion of love. It transports others also to the realm of divinity. He thus passed on an inexhaustible treasure of Celestial Music and an inexhaustible divine source of Holy Kirtan for posterity. He preaches the whole range of spirituality with his lyrical power, singing the Glory of the Lord to the accompaniment of a Tambura (a musical instrument) with the touch of His Holy Hands. His Grace flows in torrents through these hymns and fills the hearts with intense devotion, stimulates humility and stirs Amrit Nam latent in the soul.

The influence of Holy Kirtan is deep, profound and divine. Kirtan transports one to the Abode of the Lord. It lifts one out of time and space. It blesses one with a true glimpse of divinity. In this Dark Age (Kaliyuga) fruition of life lies in singing the praises and glory of the Lord (Holy Kirtan).

Holy Kirtan acts as a powerful arrow piercing through the heart. This is the way the Guru injects love and purity through His powerful Bani.

By composing the whole of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Divine Melodies, in various Ragas, Sri Guru Arjan has divinised the very foundation of music, has divinised the Rag Mala. Utilisation of the whole range of alphabets and the Music (Rag Mala) is divine in its totality in Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

Every hymn of Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a monument of direct and experienced divine love. In these hymns some are transported with Bliss, some are driven into raptures of love, some are reduced to utter humility-some fall head-long in total reverence. This is the magical effect. Holy Kirtan is a sure divine prescription, in this Dark Age, for the cure of all ills of life. Holy Kirtan releases Divine Power, Influence and Potencies which envelop the soul and the whole atmosphere with tremendous impact and effect.

Divine music being the language of the spirit transcends all barriers. It is in these holy melodies of the soul that all lovers of God, Hindus and Muslims, high caste and low caste, outcaste and untouchables, sing in soul-stirring unison the Glory of the Sole God in this Holiest of the Holy Scriptures called Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

These melodies flow like natural nectar from their very source through the holy lips of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib and His other manifestations.
