When evil is in the heart

APRADHI DOONA NIVAI JO HANTA MIRGAHE. The criminal bends DOUBLE like the hunter out to kill a deer. His humility is deceptive. While preaching virtues, Sweatness and Humility Guru Nanak does not ignore the reality on ground also. He first gives the example of the Simmal tree. Though the tree is majestic, tall, big size and beautiful flowers, yet the birds which are attracted go back disappointed because it’s leaves. flowers or fruit are not eatable. He says Sweatness and Humility are real virtues. SIMMAL RUKH SARYARA AT DEERAGH, AT MUTCH. OIYE JI AAVAI AAS KAR, JANE NIRASAY KIT. PHALL PHIKKAY, PHALL BAKBAKAY KAMM NA AAVAI PATT. MITHAT NEEVEEN NANAKA GUN CHANGIAEEAN TUTT. Nanak says that it is to himself only that one bends; not to others. The pan of the scales which goes down (bends) is heavier !!! SABH KO NIVAI AAP KO, PUR KO NIVAI NA KOAY. DHARR TARA ZOO TOLEEAI, NIVAI SO GAURA HOAY. Then the realism ; APRADHI DOONA NIVAI JO HANTA MIRGAHE. SEES NIVAYE KYA THEEAI, JA RIDHAI KASUDHAI JAEN. What is the relevance of bending the head when there is evil in the heart !!!!

Good karma and ancestors

Good karma do help in the emancipation of even the departed ancestors ; PITRI. ————————————JIS SIMRAT SABH KILVIKH NAASAY, PITRI HOAY UDHAARO. SO HAR HAR TUM SAD HI JAAPO, JISKA UNT NA PAARO. POOTA MAATA KI ASSEES. A mother’s blessing to the son. May you remember always HIM who has no ends or limits , by cherishing whom the sins are destroyed and the Pitri too is emancipated. ————————— Giving alms, feeding and clothing the poor, helping the needy and the suffering are good ideas. One does not require any go-between (Dalaal ; the priest) for doing that. His aim will be to promote his interests only and will thus cleverly misguide you. The benefits will accrue to your Pitri provided you are sharing your honest earnings. Sharing the earnings of unfair and corrupt means will have an adverse effect only. Nanak warns : ———————— If a thief (MOHAKA) steals from a house and with that gives Pitri he is making his ancestors thieves in the world ahead. The go-between (Dalaal) also makes himself liable to divine punishment. JE MOHAKA GHAR MUHAI, GHAR MUHI PITRI DE. AGGAY BASAT SINJANEEAI, PITRI CHOR KARAY. VADHAAAI HATTH DALAAL KE , MUSFI IH KARAY. The source of the things shall be known and the Pitri too shall get branded. The divine justice demands the hands of the Dalaal be chopped off. —————————————- Sharing something from the honest earnings by own labour will get credit for the departed ancestors also. NANAK AGGAY SO MILAI, JO KHATTAI GHALLAI DE. —————————————————————- SHARING WAGES OF SIN, CORRUPTION, WHAT RIGHTFULLY BELONGED TO OTHERS ; WITH HUMANS OR GIVING OFFERINGS TO DEITIES OR PLACES OF WORSHIP DOES NOT GET ONE ANY CREDIT. GIVING, SHARING EVEN A LITTLE OUT OF WHAT IS EARNED BY HONEST AND HARD LABOUR IS REALLY MEANINGFUL !!!!

God’s own people

JANAM MARAN, DO-HOON MEIN NAHIN, JAN PAR-UPKARYEEN AA-AY. JEEO DAAN DE BHAGTI LA-AYN HARI SION LAIN MILLA-AY.

God’s own people (Jan) are beyond, both, birth and death (for them it is like moving from one room to the other) ; they come here for the good of others (par-uppkaar). They bless others with the spiritual wisdom ( Jeeo daan), put them in devotion (Bhagti laa-ayn) and lead them to meet with HARI.
