Inspirational Music

‘From the Primal One Has emanatde the Gurbani, and it has effaced all the anxiety’

With the inspirational music came the words of heaven and elevated humanity into a garden of exalted life. This music with the heavenly words came to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji from the universe. Guru Sahib says, ‘as the word of the Lord comes to me, so do I utter, O Lalo.’

These are the universal words in the inspirational music of Bani. They are for all; for the high and low, for the saint and the sinner, for the thug and the benevolent, for the selfish and the generous, for the sinful woman and the nobles and purest woman. It gives solace to the afflicted. It comforts the soul that cries in pain. It is to be remembered in thick and thin. It cheers the sad and gives inspiration to all. It gives relief to the suffering and puts them to the tone of patience. The distressed and grieved find a ray of hope and happiness in the light of these amazing words. The agony of the depressed is lighted by the sweet and inspirational music that flows from Gurbani.

This music of bliss fills the environment with sounds that soothe the rough edges of life and make them sleek and glossy. Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji placed the stars, the moon and the sun in the salver of the sky to ignite and illumine the garden of life.

Raag Dhanaasaree, First Mehla:

Upon that cosmic plate of the sky, the sun and the moon are the lamps. The stars and their orbs are the studded pearls.

The fragrance of sandalwood in the air is the temple incense, and the wind is the fan. All the plants of the world are the altar flowers in offering to You, O Luminous Lord. II1II

What a beautiful Aartee, lamp-lit worship service this is! O Destroyer of Fear, this is Your Ceremony of Light.

The Unstruck Sound-current of the Shabad is the vibration of the temple drums. II1IIPauseII
You have thousands of eyes, and yet You have no eyes. You have thousands of forms, and yet You do not have even one.

You have thousands of Lotus Feet, and yet You do not have even one foot. You have no nose, but you have thousands of noses. This Play of Yours entrances me. II2II

Amongst all is the Light-You are that Light.

By this Illumination, that Light is radiant within all.

Through the Guru's Teachings, the Light shines forth.

That which is pleasing to Him is the lamp-lit worship service. II3II

My mind is enticed by the honey-sweet Lotus Feet of the Lord. Day and night, I thirst for them.

Bestow the Water of Your Mercy upon Nanak, the thirsty song-bird, so that he may come to dwell in Your Name. II4II3II

Such a great romance with nature is practice in this garland of words. With this beauty of words, Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji healed the suffering. With the touch of these words, he turned thugs into saints, the cannibals into altruistic human beings, the recreants into lions, and the cruel into humane beings.

Guru Sahib Ji teaches us love, sympathy, and compassion by arousing in us our own humanity and divinity. Our own humanity is soaked in mercy, kindness, and selfless service with the touch of Gurbani. Humility creeps into the life of Guru Ji’s Sikhs who surrenders himself in totality of the Guru. In the love of God, other virtues also glide into life to make it deal and consummate. Patience allures sobriety and temperance.

With patience a mother or a teacher listens to a child and develops self-confidence in him.

The wind of benevolence blows the fragrance of kindness, charity, liberty, and benignity in the garden of life and reaches it with forgiveness, righteousness, and justice. Life blooms with the colourful flowers of these holy and pious virtues with the Godly in nature. Kindness develops sympathy for others. Charity showers life with thoughtfulness and commiseration. Even the dark and gloomy corners of life bloom into happiness. It is the wonder touch of the Gurbani!

The feeling and spirit of righteousness and justice give courage even to the meek to stand for it at any cost. Discrimination and selfishness disappear from the garden of life, where these flowers of piety and sanctity bloom. Nature sows the seeds of solace and ecstasy with its invisible hand.

The saintly and holy words by means of inspirational music flow into life and create wonders in the garden of life. The prodigy astonishes life itself and waves of celestial music enliven every corner of life. The mind, the environment, the earth, the plants, the trees, the vegetation, the rocks, and sea are embraced and soaked in this heavenly music and holy words. Life becomes wondrous, startling with this inspirational music!
