Shabad Translation – Mithr Piaarae noo(n)
This week’s Shabad was written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji and you can find the full translation by following this link.
Reference: Sikhi to the max.
In English the Shabad is translated as follows:
mithr piaarae noo(n) haal mureedhaa dhaa kehinaa
Please tell the dear friend – the Lord – the plight of his disciples.
thudhh bin rog rajaaeeaa dhaa oudtan naag nivaasaa dhae hehinaa
Without you the use of rich blankets is like a disease for us and the
comfort of the house is like living with snakes.
sool suraahee kha(n)jar piaalaa bi(n)g kasaaeeaaa(n) dhaa sehinaa
Our water pitchers are like stakes of torture and our cups have
edges like daggers. Your neglect is like the suffering of animals
at the hands of butchers.
yaararrae dhaa saanoo(n) saathhar cha(n)gaa bhat(h) khaerriaa
Our Beloved Lord’s straw bed is more pleasing to us than living
in costly furnace-like mansions.
The Shabad featured was sung by Jagjit Singh.
Part 3 – Resource Review
We have found an excellent Sikh journal site called: SikhChic.
There is no Outside broadcast this week as one of our interviewees was ill.
In the final part of the programme, Inspirations…
we return to the featured shabad and this time it is sung by
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Until next time, we welcome your feedback and comments.
