2. The Rare One Understands Gurbani

With the Agam Apaar Beant and Anant Gurparsadi Gurkirpa – Eternal Blessings – of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmesar and Dhan Dhan Sant Baba  Ji, a Puran Sant Satguru, a Puran Braham Gyani this servant of the Gur, Guru and Gursangat is trying to bring out the truth hidden in Gurparsadi Braham Gyan – divine wisdom.


It is based on own personal eternal and spiritual experiences encountered during a deep eternal involvement in the Gurparsadi GurSangat and Gurparsadi Khel. 


We will provide some insight in to the truth regarding


·         the soul who can really understand the Gurbani,


·         the soul which can really get a glimpse of the diamonds and priceless jewels hidden in the Gurbani and pick them up and bring them inside by putting them in to daily life,


·         the soul who has been so eternally blessed that can understand and follow the Sach Khandi Bani,


·         such a soul is a rare soul,


·         such a soul is a Gurmukh soul and


·         is the one which resides in Sach Khand.


Only such a soul can understand the Gurbani, which has come from Sach Khand that is why Gubani says:


 How rare are those who undertand the Word of the Guru’s Bani;
they are the Gurmukhs.


SGGS 935


Let us spend some time in understanding the truth behind these divine words:


She calls out, ""Brother, O brother – stay, O brother!"" But he becomes a stranger.
Her brother departs for his own home, and his sister burns with the pain of separation.
In this world, her father’s home, the daughter,
 the innocent soul bride, loves her Young Husband Lord.
If you long for your Husband Lord, O soul bride, then serve the True Guru with love.
How rare are the spiritually wise, who meet the True Guru, and truly understand.
All glorious greatness rests in the Lord and Master’s Hands.
 He grants them, when He is pleased.
How rare are those who understand  the Word of the Guru’s Bani; they are the Gurmukhs.
This is the Bani of the Supreme Being;
through it, one dwells within the home of his inner being. ||40||


SGGS 935


The relationship between the soul and the body remains an illusion for ever, we keep on recognizing this human body as ours in the form of a brother of our soul (literal meaning), which means that we have always been living under this illusion that this body is mine.  And to be more explicit here, this human body has been constructed from Panj Tat – five elements – air, fire, earth, sky and water, and when we die, the real death is of this body, when this body goes back to these five elements.  The Atma –soul leaves the body and depending upon our deeds, enters in another body, which constitutes the cycle of life and death.


Such as a daughter remains playing with her dolls in her father’s house, living under similar illusion, but one day she has to leave her parent’s house to go with her husband. As long as we keep on considering and keep on such a relationship, which is a mere illusion, we will keep on revolving in the cycle of life and death, infect, whatever we see with our naked eye is the Maya, so the body is also Maya, and as long as we are involved in this vicious cycle of Maya, we remain in Haumai and so our soul has to suffer time and again to go through this cycle of life and death.


Due to this illusion our soul will remain separated from the Origin – the Creator, the Almighty, the Primal Being. As soon as we realize this fact and get to follow the divine wisdom of Gurbani, we can be relieved of this cycle of life and death. And only a Sant Satguru, a Puran Braham Gyani, who has relieved Himself from this cycle of life and death, Who is Jivan Mukt Himself, Who is a Sada Suhagan, can help us in the salvation of our soul from this cycle of life and death, because He has earned and learned eternal divine wisdom, he has achieved the spiritual powers to help others achieve salvation, and following His divine words can bring us the salvation.


This is a Gurparsadi Khel, only such a soul will meet a Puran Sant Satguru, a Puran Braham Gyani, who has been eternally blessed by Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmesar, it is the Gurkirpa that will bring us in the Gursangat of such an enlightened soul. This kind of a divine understanding about the meeting with a divine soul of a Puran Sant Satguru, comes in to a rare soul.


Singing the Praise of Dhan Dhan Paar Braham Parmesar in its true sense is given to such a rare soul, by the Primal Being Himself, whose Punn Karams have already reached a certain level, which makes the Almighty happy. Such a rare soul is a Gurmukh soul, who understands the Sach Khandi Satgur Ki Bani, only such a soul who is residing in Sach Khand will be able to understand this language of Sach Khand, such a soul is the true Gurmukh who with eternal blessings listens to the Sant Saguru and then does it in His real life, earns the words of a Sant Satguru and eventually becomes like Him, merges with the Almighty, becomes a Pargatyeo Jyot Himself, obtains the Param Padvi.


In a nutshell such a soul is a rare soul, who absorbs Gurbani by bringing it in side and absorbing it by putting it into practice in his daily life, such a soul is a Gurmukh soul, and becomes so with the Gurparsadi Gurkirpa of Dhan Dhan Akal Purakh through the eternal blessings of a Puran Sant Satguru, a Pargatyeo Jyot Puran Braham Gyani, and eventually such a soul becomes one with Almighty.


In the end let us evaluate ourselves in light of above divine wisdom of Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and find out if we have been eternally blessed to become such a rare soul yet or not, who will understand Gurbani and become a Gurmukh soul, and if not then let us pray to the Almighty for blessing us to become such a rare soul, become a Gurmukh, do Puran Bhagtee, become one with Him, obtain the Param Padvi, through the blessings of a Puran Sant Satguru, a Puran Braham Gyani.
