(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 922)

In this final Pauri (verse) of Anand Sahib GurBani, the blessed SatGuru incarnate Amar Das Sahib Ji describes the supremely powerful magnificence of Puran Awastha (the state of spiritual perfection) that a Bhagat (devotee) attains. When the Bhagat (the Suhaagan – God’s bride; the one accepted in Dargah as a devotee) accomplishes his or her Bandagi (submission before God), he or she attains ‘Sada Suhaag’ (the eternal Suhaag, denoting the attainment of Puran Braham Gyan, Puran Tat Gyan and Param Padvi). When Bandagi of the Bhagat (the Suhaagan) finds approval in Dargah (the divine court), he or she attains ‘Sada Suhaag’. When Bandagi of the Suhaagan is accomplished, he or she attains Darshan (vision with inner, spiritual eye) of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar (Truth, the Transcendent Lord and Creator of the Universe) and becomes a ‘Sada Suhaagan’ (the eternal bride of God; one who has attained Sada Suhaag). The ‘Sada Suhaagan’ is forever assimilated in the Nirgun Saroop (the immense divine power untouched by the three attributes of Maya) of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. When the ‘Sada Suhaagan’ becomes forever one with Sat PaarBraham, he or she acquires Puran Braham Gyan (perfect-divine wisdom). When the ‘Sada Suhaagan’ is forever assimilated in Sat PaarBraham, he or she acquires Tat Gyan (the divine knowledge; understanding of the divine ways). When the ‘Sada Suhaagan’ becomes forever one with Sat PaarBraham, he or she attains Param Padvi (the highest spiritual status). When the ‘Sada Suhaagan’ is forever assimilated in Sat PaarBraham, he or she attains Jeevan Mukti (deliverance from the cycle of birth-and-death; salvation). In this supremely powerful state, the Sada Suhaagan comes in possession of all the divine treasures. The four Lavaan’s (rounds around Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, performed as part of the matrimonial ceremony) described in GurBani (Gur’s words or God’s words; Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) by grace of the blessed SatGuru Sahib are the Lavaan’s of Suhaag of the Bhagat (the Suhaagan) with Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar (the Lord Husband). In the first Lavaan, the Bhagat achieves Suhaag, and in the fourth Lavaan the Bandagi of the Bhagat is accepted in Dargah and he or she attains Sada Suhaag. The Bhagat achieves Suhaag when he or she obtains GurParsaad (the eternal bliss and eternal grace). The Bhagat achieves Suhaag when SatNaam (Truth as a manifestation of the Name of God) gets inscribed in his or her Surat (conscience). When the Surat of the Bhagat is unified with Shabad (the divine words; GurBani), he or she attains Samadhi (a deep trance-like state, where there is no thought except pure consciousness) and achieves Suhaag. When the Suhaagan vanquishes the Trigun Maya (Maya of the three aspects: Sato – the goodness viz. compassion, righteousness, contentedness and forbearance; Rajo – the desires viz. hopes, expectations and yearnings; and Tamo – the vices viz. lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) and, in Chautha Pad (the fourth stage – the fourth Lavaan), obtains Darshan of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar and forever assimilates in Him, it is at this stage that he or she attains Sada Suhaag.

At this stage, the Trishna (the worldly desires) of the Sada Suhaagan is quenched. The gravely disastrous fire of Trishna comes to an end. Total Sat Santokh (divine contentedness; state where there is humility and an absence of desires) is attained. The mind attains Sat Santokh. The mind, an embodiment of Maya (the worldly temptations; all physical perceptions are nothing but illusions created by Maya), comes to an end. The Panj Chandaals (the five villains or lowlifes: lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) are overcome. The gravely destructive forces of the Panj Chandaals are defeated. All the mental ailments (the Panj Chandaals: lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) come to an end. The root cause of all mental ailments is the gravely devastating force of fire of Trishna residing in the human mind, and at the stage of Sada Suhaagan, the deadly disastrous force of Trishna too meets its end. Even the root cause of all physical diseases of the human being is the gravely destructive force of Trishna and the gravely devastating forces of the Panj Chandaals. Once these gravely disastrous forces of Maya meet their end, the root cause of all the physical maladies of the human being too is eradicated. Because of which, the human being starts to get rid of his physical diseases. The mind and the body are becalmed. The mind attains perfect peace. The slavery of the Trigun Maya comes to an end. Maya falls at the feet of the Sada Suhaagan. The mind becomes restful. The mind is transformed into Jyot (the divine light within; soul). Manmat (own wisdom as opposed to Gurmat or God’s wisdom) comes to an end. Gurmat casts its illumination. The mind arrives under the divine and sacred Hukam (the divine will or command). The Hirda (Hirda or Hirda Kamal is one of the seven Sat Sarovars located near heart; part of one’s spiritual being) attains Puran Sachyari Rehat (total compliance with Sat). Param Jyot Puran Parkash (the perfect radiance of divine light; His aura; God Himself) casts its radiance in the Hirda. The Hirda is suffused with virtues. All vices come to an end. All the Bajjar Kapaats (the divine doors located at various places in the human body that, once opened, channel Amrit into the body and establish connection between the human being and Akaal Purakh) are opened. The seven Sat Sarovars (the seven sources of Amrit, or the spiritual energy, inside the human body) are awakened. The Dassam Duaar (the tenth door; Crown Chakra; once opened, it establishes link between the human being and Akaal Purakh) is lit up. Anhad Shabad (the divine un-struck music – played on divine musical instruments) begins to constantly sound at the Dassam Duaar. Dib Drisht (divine vision – also called as the third eye, Trikuti, or Gyan Netter – the wisdom eye) is attained. The fount of Puran Braham Gyan gushes forth within the Bhagat. Tat Gyan manifests itself. Every cell of the body is absorbed in SatNaam Simran (meditation upon SatNaam). Every cell of the body is lit up with SatNaam.

The entire body of the Sada Suhaagan is suffused with Amrit. Every part of body of the Sada Suhaagan begins to brim with Amrit (our essence or the life-element; soul). Just as a pitcher, once it gets filled, begins to brim when more water is added to it, and because of which water begins to overflow from the pitcher, in the same way the body of the Sada Suhaagan, once it is suffused with Amrit, begins to overflow with Amrit because of the springs of Amrit constantly streaming in the seven Sat Sarovars within the body. The eyes of the Sada Suhaagan constantly rain Amrit. Every part of body of the Sada Suhaagan constantly oozes Amrit. The feet of the Sada Suhaagan carry immense Parkash (the divine light; manifestation of Nirgun Saroop). The head of the Sada Suhaagan radiates immense Parkash. The Hirda Kamal of the Sada Suhaagan emits immense Parkash. To conclude, the Sada Suhaagan turns into fount of immense Amrit. The Sada Suhaagan turns into fount of GurParsaad. The Sada Suhaagan turns into fount of GurKirpa (eternal grace). The Sada Suhaagan turns into fount of Puran Braham Gyan. The Sada Suhaagan turns into a bestower of GurParsaad. The Sada Suhaagan turns into a bestower of Amrit. The Sada Suhaagan turns into a bestower of Puran Bandagi (total surrender before God). The Sada Suhaagan turns into a bestower of Jeevan Mukti. Therefore, the Sada Suhaagan possesses immense magnificence. The magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan cannot be described in words. The Akath Katha (the indescribable discourse) of the Sada Suhaagan cannot be said in words. The Katha of the Sada Suhaagan manifests itself in his or her Sat Sangat. The immense magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan manifests itself upon earth in his or her own Sat Sangat (gathering in the presence of Sat or among those who have attained Jeevan Mukti and become embodiment of Sat). Dargah clearly manifests itself upon earth in the Sat Sangat of the Sada Suhaagan. The supreme power of GurParsaad comes to bear in the Sat Sangat of the Sada Suhaagan, which results in Suhaagans being born in such a Sangat (congregation).

The immense and supremely powerful magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is revealed upon earth when new Suhaagans take birth in his or her Sat Sangat. The immense and supremely powerful magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan manifests itself upon earth when the Suhaagans in his or her Sat Sangat have their Bajjar Kapaats opened and attain Dib Drisht. The immense and supremely powerful magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is manifested upon earth when the Suhaagans in his or her Sat Sangat immerse themselves in Samadhi and in Sunn Samadhi (silent, deep meditation; a state free of thoughts, even free from the effects of time and space), and obtain Darshan of the Puran Sants (the perfect saints), Puran Braham Gyanis (those possessing Puran Braham Gyanis), Puran SatGurus (the perfect Truth-Gurus; those having accomplished Bandagi and attained Jeevan Mukti, and divinely ordained to lead others on the path of Bandagi and Mukti) and Avataars (the divine incarnates) present in Dargah. The immense and supremely powerful magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan manifests itself upon earth when the Suhaagans in his or her Sat Sangat immerse themselves in Samadhi and in Sunn Samadhi and obtain Darshan of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The immense and supremely powerful magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is manifested upon earth when the Suhaagans in his or her Sat Sangat vanquish the gravely disastrous forces of Maya and are assimilated forever in the Nirgun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, and accomplishing their Bandagi, are transformed into Sada Suhaagans. Thus, the supremely powerful and immense magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is manifested upon earth when a Suhaagan under his or her shelter and in his or her Sat Sangat accomplishes Bandagi and turns into a Sada Suhaagan. The supremely powerful and immense magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is manifested upon earth when a Suhaagan vanquishes the Trigun Maya and attains Jeevan Mukti. The supremely powerful and immense magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is revealed upon earth when a Suhaagan acquires Puran Braham Gyan and Tat Gyan. The supremely powerful and immense magnificence of the Sada Suhaagan is manifested upon earth when a Suhaagan attains Param Padvi and becomes a bestower of Amrit.

The Sada Suhaagan abides constantly under the supremely powerful shelter of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The shelter of the Sada Suhaagan extends throughout the universe. Wherever in the world the Sangat of the Sada Suhaagan is engaged in SatNaam Simran, it is always under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. Maya cannot affect the Sat Sangat immersed in SatNaam Simran under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. That is, the gravely disastrous forces (Rajo and Tamo) of Maya can do no harm to the Sat Sangat immersed in SatNaam Simran under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. The deadly devastating fire of Trishna can cause no harm to the Sat Sangat engaged in SatNaam Simran under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. The Panj Chandaals (lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride) can do no evil to the Sat Sangat absorbed in SatNaam Simran under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. That is, the gravely disastrous forces of Maya cannot come near the shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. This is so, because all the forces of Maya abide beneath Sat Charans (feet where Sat abides) of the Sada Suhaagan. The supreme power of GurParsaad comes to bear under Sat Charans of the Sada Suhaagan. Therefore, the mind of a human being readily immerses in SatNaam Simran while under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan. The human being easily attains Suhaag. The human being easily attains Samadhi and Sunn Samadhi. The Suhaagan has his or her Bajjar Kapaats readily opened. The Suhaagan easily achieves victory over the gravely disastrous forces of Maya. The Suhaagan easily obtains Darshan of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The Suhaagan easily assimilates himself or herself forever in the Nirgun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. The Suhaagan easily attains Sada Suhaag. Therefore, abiding under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan, the human being easily accomplishes his Bandagi.

A Suhaagan immersed in Bandagi under shelter of the Sada Suhaagan readily attains the state of being ‘Nirbhao’ (‘without fear’). ‘Being Nirbhao’ is the supreme power that immediately frees the Suhaagan from clutches of the attachments-Chandaal. ‘Being Nirbhao’ is the supreme power that makes one immediately and clearly realize the Param Sat Tat (core-essence of the supreme Truth) that the entire world is Maya. ‘Being Nirbhao’ is the supreme power that makes one immediately realize the Param Sat Tat that the entire world is transient and Kood (false). ‘Being Nirbhao’ is the supreme power that immediately and clearly makes apparent the Param Sat Tat that all worldly relationships and objects are nothing but creations of Maya. Thus, the Nirbhao Suhaagan breaks the gravely disastrous bond of the attachments-Chandaal, and becomes free of the attachments. The Suhaagan vanquishes the gravely destructive force of the attachments-Chandaal. The Puran Braham Gyan of the fake, worldly and materialistic bonds is realized. The truth about the fake, worldly and materialistic bonds reveals itself within the Suhaagan. All fake and materialistic bonds are shattered. The truth of all fake family relationships is realized. All fake family bonds are broken. Freedom is gained from the worldly, materialistic and family attachments. The worldly, materialistic and family attachments are root cause of all suffering, distress and agony in the human birth and life. Thus, all suffering, distress and agony in the human birth and life come to an end. The root cause of all suffering, distress and agony of the human birth and life is eradicated. It is a Param Sat (supreme Truth) that only a Bhagat (Suhaagan) that becomes Nirbhao achieves approval of his or her Bandagi in Dargah. It is a Param Sat that only a Bhagat (Suhaagan) that becomes Nirbhao attains Sada Suhaag. It is a Param Sat that only a Bhagat (Suhaagan) that becomes Nirbhao can propagate Puran Sat (eternal Truth; God Himself) amongst the people in the world. Only a Nirbhao Bhagat (Suhaagan) serves Puran Sat.

The Suhaagan attains the supreme power of being ‘Nirvair’ (‘without hatred or enmity’). By being ‘Nirvair’ is meant that the Suhaagan becomes Ik Drisht (seeing all as equal; non-discriminatory). Only an Ik Drisht being can assimilate in the Nirgun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. ‘Being Nirvair’ is the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that makes the Suhaagan clearly behold Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar prevailing in the entire Creation. ‘Being Nirvair’ is the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that makes the Suhaagan clearly discern Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar in his omnipresent form. ‘Being Nirvair’ is the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that makes the Suhaagan clearly visualize the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar in effect within every creation. ‘Being Nirvair’ is the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that makes the Suhaagan experience the Jyot of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar within every human being. ‘Being Nirvair’ is the supreme power of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that makes the Suhaagan clearly apprehend the supreme power of Nirgun taking effect within the Sargun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar (Nirgun represents God beyond the Trigun Maya observed only through one’s spiritual eye, and Sargun is the divine power present in every creation and sustaining it. Seeing Nirgun in Sargun, or Nirgun-Sargun becoming one describes the state where one realizes that all physical creations are part of Sargun, but are created and run by Nirgun – this realization is the Puran Braham Gyan and Puran Tat Gyan). To the ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan, the Nirgun and Sargun forms of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar become one. There is no longer anyone inimical to the ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan. To a ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan, every person in the world is a friend. The disastrous perversions of antagonism, antipathy, hatred, enmity etc. are eradicated from Hirda of the “Nirvair’ Suhaagan. The Hirda of the ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan only houses perfect love towards the entire humanity. The ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan seeks wellbeing of everyone (the entire humanity). The fount of feeling of perfect love for every creation of nature springs forth in Hirda of the ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan. The ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan loves every creation of nature as much as he or she loves Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. It is a Param Sat that only a Suhaagan that becomes ‘Nirvair’ can propagate Puran Sat amongst the people in the world. Only a ‘Nirvair’ Suhaagan serves Puran Sat in the world. Thus, without the supreme power of being ‘Nirvair’, a Suhaagan cannot become a Sada Suhaagan. The blessed SatGuru Patshahs (the ten SatGuru Sahiban) have repeatedly emphasized the supremely powerful and immense magnificence of Sada Suhaagan in GurBani:

Sadaa suhaag suhaaganee jay chaleh satgur bhaa-ay.

Sadaa pir nihchal paa-ee-ai naa oh marai na jaa-ay.

Sabad milee naa veechhurhai pir kai ank samaa-ay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 66)

Pir bin kharee nimaanee jee-o bin pir ki-o jeevaa mayree maa-ee.

Kaapar tan suhaavai jaa pir bhaavai gurmatee chit laa-ee-ai.

Sadaa suhaagan jaa satgur sayvay gur kai ank samaa-ee-ai.

Gur sabdai maylaa taa pir raavee laahaa naam sansaaray.

Naanak kaaman naah pi-aaree jaa har kay gun saaray.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 244)

Aapay mayl la-ay sukh-daata aap mili-aa ghar aa-ay.

Naanak kaaman sadaa suhaagan naa pir marai na jaa-ay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 245)

Ha-umai maar mu-ee-ay too chal gur kai bhaa-ay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 568)

Kaa-i-aa kaaman at su-aaliha-o pir vasai jis naalay.

Kaa-i-aa andar jagjeevan daataa vasai sabhnaa karay partipaalaa.

Kaa-i-aa kaaman sadaa suhaylee gurmukh naam samhaalaa.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 754)

Gurmukh hukam mannay sah kayraa hukmay hee sukh paa-ay.

Hukmo sayvay hukam araadhay hukmay samai samaa-ay.                         

Hukam varat naym such sanjam man chindi-aa fal paa-ay.

Sadaa suhaagan je hukmai bujhai satgur sayvai liv laa-ay.

Naanak kirpaa karay jin oopar tinaa hukmay la-ay milaa-ay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1423)

When SatNaam, casting its radiance, awakens and illuminates the Hirda Kamal, all the bonds of deeds by the Suhaagan from this birth and from all past birth-after-birth are shattered. When the Suhaagan vanquishes the gravely disastrous forces (Rajo and Tamo) of Maya and attains Puran Sachyari Rehat, then Param Jyot Puran Parkash manifests itself in his or her Hirda. When the fire of Trishna within the Suhaagan is quenched and he or she overcomes the Panj Chandaals (lust, anger, greed, attachments and pride), then Param Jyot (the divine light; soul; God Himself) manifests itself in his or her Hirda and illuminates it with Puran Parkash (the supreme light; His aura; aura around the enlightened ones). When Param Jyot manifests itself in Hirda of the Suhaagan, all the bonds of his or her deeds from past birth-after-birth are shattered. It is a Param Sat that only GurParsaad of SatNaam bears the supreme power that breaks the divine Vidhaan of Karma (laws determining one’s destiny in accordance with one’s good and bad deeds) and manifests Param Jyot in Hirda Kamal of the Suhaagan, and Hirda of the Sada Suhaagan is suffused with Puran Parkash. Thus, it is a Param Sat that, only by receiving the GurParsaad of SatNaam, the Suhaagan breaks all the bonds of deeds from birth-after-birth. The Suhaagan is freed of all the bonds of birth-after-birth. The freedom from the deeds of birth-after-birth is Jeevan Mukti. To attain Jeevan Mukti is to attain Sada Suhaag. With the attainment of Jeevan Mukti, the cycle of birth-and-death comes to an end. The disease of birth-and-death, the biggest disease in the human birth and life, comes to an end.

Having attained such a supremely powerful state of attainment of ‘Sada Suhaag’, there no longer remains any distinction between Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar and the Sada Suhaagan. The Sada Suhaagan becomes forever indistinct from Sat PaarBraham. The supremely powerful and immense magnificence of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar is revealed upon earth in the form of the Sada Suhaagan. The Sada Suhaagan is the Puran SatGuru. The Sada Suhaagan is Sat Ram Das (a true servant of God). The Sada Suhaagan is Puran Braham Gyani. The Sada Suhaagan is Puran Khalsa (a pure soul that possesses Puran Braham Gyan). The Sada Suhaagan is the Gurmukh being (a soul in complete Bandagi; a soul in possession of GurParsaad of SatNaam; a soul in Sach Khand). The Sada Suhaagan is Puran Sadh (the perfect-sage). The Sada Suhaagan is Puran Sant. Thus, the Sada Suhaagan bears a supremely powerful and immense magnificence. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the form of the ‘Sada Suhaagan’ to Himself appear upon earth, to offer salvation to the worldly beings. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the supremely powerful form of the Puran SatGuru and appears upon earth to offer deliverance to the worldly beings. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the supremely powerful form of the Puran Sant-SatGuru and appears upon earth to bestow GurParsaad of His Puran Bandagi upon the worldly beings. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the supremely powerful form of the Puran Braham Gyani and appears upon earth to guide the worldly beings walking the path of Dharam (righteousness; commonly interpreted as religion or seeking union with the divine). Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the supremely powerful form of the Puran Sant-SatGuru and appears upon earth to propagate Puran Sat amongst the worldly beings. Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar takes the supremely powerful form of the Puran Sant-SatGuru and appears upon earth to bestow the GurParsaad of Amrit upon the worldly beings. The SatGuru Sahiban repeatedly emphasize these supremely powerful Sat Tat’s of this Param Sat in GurBani:

Paarbarahm saadh rid basai.

Naanak udhrai saadh sun rasai.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 272)

Saadh kee upmaa tihu gun tay door.

Saadh kee upmaa rahee bharpoor.

Saadh kee sobhaa kaa naahee ant.

Saadh kee sobhaa sadaa bay-ant.

Saadh kee sobhaa ooch tay oochee.

Saadh kee sobhaa mooch tay moochee.

Saadh kee sobhaa saadh ban aa-ee.

Naanak saadh parabh bhayd na bhaa-ee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 272)

Barahm gi-aanee ka-o khojeh mahaysur.

Naanak barahm gi-aanee aap parmaysur.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 273)

Barahm gi-aanee sabh sarisat kaa kartaa.

Barahm gi-aanee sad jeevai nahee martaa.

Barahm gi-aanee mukat jugat jee-a kaa daataa.

Barahm gi-aanee anaath kaa naath.

Barahm gi-aanee kaa sabh oopar haath.

Barahm gi-aanee kaa sagal akaar.

Barahm gi-aanee aap nirankaar.

Barahm gi-aanee kee sobhaa barahm gi-aanee banee.

Naanak barahm gi-aanee sarab kaa dhanee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 273-274)

Vaahu vaahu satgur purakh hai jin sach jaataa so-ay.

Jit mili-ai tikh utrai tan man seetal ho-ay.

Vaahu vaahu satgur sat purakh hai jis no samat sabh ko-ay.

Vaahu vaahu satgur nirvair hai jis nindaa ustat tul ho-ay.

Vaahu vaahu satgur sujaan hai jis antar barahm veechaar.

Vaahu vaahu satgur nirankaar hai jis ant na paaraavaar.

Vaahu vaahu satguroo hai je sach drirh-aa-ay so-ay.

Naanak satgur vaahu vaahu jis tay naam paraapat ho-ay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1421)

It is only through seeking the Charan Sharan (shelter at the feet) of a Puran Sant-SatGuru that the Jigyasoo (the seeker of the divine) realizes all the secrets of Puran Bandagi. It is through abiding in the Charan Sharan of a Puran Sant-SatGuru that one grasps Puran Braham Gyan about all the Param Sat Tat’s of Puran Bandagi. Only through joining the Sat Sangat of a Puran Sant-SatGuru, one comes to understand depths of core-essence of Param Sat’s revealed in GurBani. Only through serving the Puran Sant-SatGuru one comprehends the priceless gems of Puran Braham Gyan strung in GurBani. Only through dedicating one’s entire self in the Charan Sharan of the Puran Sant-SatGuru, a human being obtains the GurParsaad of Suhaag. It is only after obtaining Suhaag that the Surat of the Suhaagan experiences depth of Mansarovar (the eternal source of divine powers; the source of all life; Akaal Purakh Himself). By practising SatNaam Simran while in Samadhi and in Sunn Samadhi, the Surat of the Suhaagan descends to the depth of Mansarovar. Only those Suhaagans, who have all their Bajjar Kapaats opened, experience depth of GurBani. The Suhaagans, who have all their Sat Sarovars awakened, descend their Surat deep in Mansarovar. The Suhaagans, who have SatNaam Simran piercing into every cell of their body, immerse their Surat deep in Mansarovar.

It is a Param Sat that GurBani has originated from Mansarovar. GurBani is pronounced by the SatGuru Sahiban and the Puran Sants and Bhagats (the Sada Suhaagans, the embodiments of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar) who have descended deep in Mansarovar. Therefore, only a Suhaagan that descends deep in Mansarovar can realize and understand depth of GurBani. The Suhaagan with his or her Surat descended deep in Mansarovar clearly experiences the Param Sat Tat’s revealed by the SatGuru Sahiban in GurBani. A Suhaagan or a Sada Suhaagan clearly experiences the supremely powerful states revealed in GurBani. Those Bhagats (the Suhaagans and the Sada Suhaagans) who practise the supremely powerful virtues described in GurBani experience depth of Mansarovar. It is only once the Suhaagan obtains the supremely powerful and priceless gems of Puran Braham Gyan described in GurBani that he or she experiences depth of the supremely powerful magnificence of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Only the Suhaagans with their Surat descended deep in Mansarovar obtain Darshan of the Nirgun Saroop of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Thus, the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings make their abode in Mansarovar, and their very life turns into GurBani. That is, everything that is revealed in GurBani comes to pass in life of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings. The Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings experience those Param Sat Tat’s that are described in GurBani. The supreme power of GurParsaad comes to bear in the Charan Sharan of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings. Therefore, GurBani makes the supremely powerful edict that one can only finds GurParsaad in the Charan Sharan of a Puran SatGuru, Sada Suhaagan, Puran Sant or a Puran Braham Gyani. It is only in the Charan Sharan of a Sada Suhaagan, Puran Sant, Puran SatGuru and Puran Braham Gyani great-being that one obtains SatNaam, SatNaam Simran, SatNaam Di Kamai (observing Sat in life), Puran Bandagi and Maha-Parupkaari Seva (the humble and selfless service of guiding the mankind on the path of Bhagati and Jeevan Mukti). It is only in the Charan Sharan of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings that one attains Jeevan Mukti. It is only in the Charan Sharan of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and the Puran Braham Gyani great-beings that one receives all the divine gems and treasures. This supremely powerful divine edict is stressed again and again in GurBani:

Man kay bikaar maneh tajai man chookai moh abhimaan.

Aatam raam pachhaani-aa sehjay naam samaan.

Bin satgur mukat na paa-ee-ai manmukh firai divaan.

Sabad na cheenai kathnee badnee karay bikhi-aa maahi samaan.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 39)

Bin satgur sayvay mukat na ho-ee.

Gur parsaadee milai har so-ee.

Gur daataa jug chaaray ho-ee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 230)

Bin satgur kinai na paa-i-o bin satgur kinai na paa-i-aa.

Satgur vich aap rakhi-on kar pargat aakh sunaa-i-aa.

Satgur mili-ai sadaa mukat hai jin vichahu moh chukaa-i-aa.

Utam ayhu beechaar hai jin sachay si-o chit laa-i-aa.

Jagjeevan daataa paa-i-aa.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 466)

Bin satgur naam na paa-ee-ai bhaa-ee bin naamai bharam na jaa-ee.

Satgur sayvay taa sukh paa-ay bhaa-ee aavan jaan rahaa-ee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 635-636)

Jug chaaray dhan jay bhavai bin satgur sohaag na ho-ee raam.

Nihchal raaj sadaa har kayraa tis bin avar na ko-ee raam.

Tis bin avar na ko-ee sadaa sach so-ee gurmukh ayko jaani-aa.

Dhan pir maylaavaa ho-aa gurmatee man maani-aa.

Satgur mili-aa taa har paa-i-aa bin har naavai mukat na ho-ee.

Naanak kaaman kantai raavay man maanee-ai sukh ho-ee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 769)

Bin satgur sayvay jog na ho-ee.

Bin satgur bhaytay mukat na ko-ee.

Bin satgur bhaytay naam paa-i-aa na jaa-ay.

Bin satgur bhaytay mahaa dukh paa-ay.

Bin satgur bhaytay mahaa garab gubaar.

Naanak bin gur mu-aa janam haar.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 946)

Sachai sabad sachee pat ho-ee.

Bin naavai mukat na paavai ko-ee.

Bin satgur ko naa-o na paa-ay parabh aisee banat banaa-ee hay.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1046)

Ay bharam bhoolay marahu na ko-ee.

Satgur sayv sadaa sukh ho-ee.

Bin satgur mukat kinai na paa-ee.

Aavahi jaanhi mareh mar jaa-ee.

(Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji 1343)

Therefore, it is a Param Sat that the Charan Sharan of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings carries immense magnificence. The magnificence of the Charan Sharan of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings is supremely powerful. In the form of the Sada Suhaagans, Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus and Puran Braham Gyani great-beings, Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar clearly manifests Himself upon earth. Supreme power comes to bear in the words of such great-beings. Supreme power comes to bear in the Sat Bachans (the divine words) of such great-beings. Observing the Sat Bachans of such great and holy beings, a common Maya-beset human being purifies himself. Adhering to the Sat Bachans of such great-beings, a common Maya-beset human being makes his life undergo a transformation. Following the words of such great-beings, a common Maya-beset human being puts all his suffering, distress, agonies, maladies, troubles and hardships to end. Practising the Sat Bachans of such great-beings in life, a common Maya-beset human being turns into a Puran Sant. Therefore, it is a humble prayer at the feet of the entire mankind to pray to find the Sat Sangat of such great-beings. Pray to find the Charan Sharan of such great-beings. You will obtain GurParsaad in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings. You will only achieve Suhaag in the Sat Sangat of such great-beings. Making a total dedication of oneself in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings, you will easily defeat the gravely disastrous forces of Maya. Abiding in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings, you will easily perform your Bandagi and achieve Suhaag. Abiding in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings, you will easily find the supreme bliss. Abiding in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings, you will easily accomplish your Bandagi. Abiding in the Charan Sharan of such great-beings, you will easily attain Jeevan Mukti.

It is a Param Sat that the perfect-supreme bliss can only be obtained in the Charan Sharan of the Puran SatGuru. This Param Sat is revealed by the blessed SatGuru incarnate Amar Das Patshah Ji in the very first Pauri of this Bani. Amrit is obtained only in the Charan Sharan of the Puran Sant-SatGuru. The GurParsaad of SatNaam, SatNaam Simran, SatNaam Di Kamai, Puran Bandagi and Maha-Parupkaari Seva is obtained only in the Charan Sharan of the Puran Sant-SatGuru. By the supremely powerful grace and GurParsaad of the Puran Sant-SatGuru, all worries and laments are eradicated. The mind ceases to gallop. The mind attains perfect rest. All suffering, distress, maladies, troubles and hardships etc. come to an end. Only by the supremely powerful GurKirpa and GurParsaad of the Puran SatGuru, the Dassam Duaar of the human being opens and Anhad Shabad is attained. Only by the supremely powerful GurKirpa and GurParsaad of the Puran SatGuru, the human being accomplishes his Bandagi and attains the perfect-supreme bliss. By grace of the supremely powerful GurKirpa and GurParsaad of the Puran SatGuru, the human being attains the perfect-supreme bliss once he has vanquished the Trigun Maya and, arriving at Chautha Pad, forever become one with Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Only by the supremely powerful GurKirpa and GurParsaad of the Puran SatGuru, the bonds of the uncounted deeds from birth-after-birth are broken and, attaining Jeevan Mukti, the human being attains the ever-eternal Sat Chit Anand (bliss of being in consciousness of Truth, the highest consciousness; eternal happiness).

By the supremely powerful Puran Hukam, GurKirpa and GurParsaad of the blessed SatGuru Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar, this GurParsaadi Katha (discourse graced by God and Guru) of the supremely powerful GurBani of Anand Sahib is accomplished. By grace of the immense and boundless kindness of all the blessed SatGuru Avataars, Puran Sants, Puran Braham Gyanis and Sada Suhaagans present in Dargah, this GurParsaadi Katha is accomplished. By GurParsaadi GurKirpa of the Sada Suhaagans and the Suhaagans that have made their appearance in the blessed SatNaam Sat Sangat family, this GurParsaadi Katha has been accomplished. The entire credit goes to the Sat Charans of Puran Sant SatGuru Sahib Ji of Dassan Dass (the slave-to-a-slave; here the narrator) and his supremely powerful SatNaam Sat Sangat, by whose supremely-powerful grace this GurParsaadi Katha has been accomplished. Dassan Dass prays a million times, every moment and every instance and with every breath, that Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar blesses everyone with the Sat Sangat of a Puran Sant-SatGuru. Dassan Dass again and again makes millions of prayers, every moment and every instance and with every breath, that every human being living upon earth finds the Charan Sharan of a Puran Sant-SatGuru. Dassan Dass prays a million times, again and again, every moment and every instance and with every breath, that every human being living upon earth receives GurParsaad and immerses himself in Bandagi of Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar. Dassan Dass prays a million times, every moment and every instance and with every breath, again and again that every human being living upon earth speaks Sat, hears Sat, acts Sat and serves Sat. Dassan Dass prays again and again a million times, every moment and every instance and with every breath, that every human being living upon earth becomes a Sant Hirda (saintly-Hirda). Dassan Dass prays again and again, every moment and every instance and with every breath, a million times that every human being living upon earth becomes a person of Sat Yuga (the epoch of Truth), and that Sat Yuga comes to prevail upon earth.

Finally, Dassan Dass prostates a million times before the entire Creation and expresses his gratitude. He prostates before the blessed Puran Sants, Puran SatGurus, Puran Braham Gyanis, Puran Khalsas, the Gurmukh beings, the Gursikhs (the disciples of Guru; pious Sikhs), those who perform SatNaam and those who serve Puran Sat, a million times, every moment and every instance and with every breath, and expresses his gratitude. He prostates before the blessed Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar a million times, every moment, every instance and with every breath, and expressed his gratitude. It is by grace of the supremely powerful GurParsaadi Hukam, immense benevolence, immense kindness and immense compassion of the blessed SatGuru Sahib Ji and the blessed Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar that this GurParsaadi Katha has been accomplished. May the blessed Sat PaarBraham Parmeshar continue to shower His supremely powerful GurKirpa and GurParsaad, and may we carry on forever in the service of Puran Sat.
