Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 110 – #musicalmarch /Mothers Day

Spidey

“Man is born from a woman: Within woman, man is conceived: To a woman he is engaged and married. Man is friends with woman: Through woman, the future generations exist. When his woman passes away, he seeks another woman: To a woman, a man is bound. So why call her bad? From her kings are born, from a woman, woman is born: Without woman there would be no one at all.” – Guru Granth Sahib Ji

For that special woman in our lives, our mother.

Happy Mothers Day ❤

A Shabad Simran sung by a young girl today. This is the daughter of a man called Dya Singh from Australia. He travelled the word with his three daughters and used music to teach about Sikhi to the world. He created a beautiful CD especially for children, a mix of English and Punjabi, which my own children loved!

He incorporates traditional Indian instruments, the electric guitar and even the didgeridoo in his music too, to create a truly universal sound!

 “Before becoming a Sikh, a Muslim, a Hindu or a Christian, let’s become a human first.” – Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Spidey and I may have shared this before, but thinking of life, and how we are all treating each other right now, I think our first Guru had wise words to say.

Today I share a shabad (hymn) with lyrics and translation below.

Beautiful rendition by Bhai Harjinder Singh Ji Srinagar Wale

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਹਉ ਚੇਰੁਲੀ ਸੋ ਸਭ ਤੇ ਊਚਾ ॥
jaa parabh kee hau chayrulee so sabh te oochaa.
I am God’s maid-servant; He is the highest of all.

ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਕਾਂਢੀਐ ਥੋਰਾ ਅਰੁ ਮੂਚਾ ॥੧॥
sabh kichh ta ka kaandhiye thoraa ar moocha. ||1||
All things, big and small, are said to belong to Him. ||1||

ਜੀਅ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਮੇਰਾ ਧਨੋ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਕੀ ਮਨੀਆ ॥
jiye praan mera dhano saahib ki maneya.
I surrender my soul, my breath of life, and my wealth, to my Lord Master.

ਨਾਮਿ ਜਿਸੈ ਕੈ ਊਜਲੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਦਾਸੀ ਗਨੀਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
naam jise ke oojlee tis daasi ganeeya. ||1|| rahaa-o.
Through His Name, I become radiant; I am known as His slave. ||1||Pause||

ਵੇਪਰਵਾਹੁ ਅਨੰਦ ਮੈ ਨਾਉ ਮਾਣਕ ਹੀਰਾ ॥
veparvaahu anand mai nau maanak heera.
You are Carefree, the Embodiment of Bliss. Your Name is a gem, a jewel.

ਰਜੀ ਧਾਈ ਸਦਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਤੂੰ ਮੀਰਾ ॥੨॥
rajee dhaai sadaa sukh ja ka toon meera. ||2||
One who has You as her Master, is satisfied, satiated and happy forever. ||2||

ਸਖੀ ਸਹੇਰੀ ਸੰਗ ਕੀ ਸੁਮਤਿ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਵਉ ॥
sakhi saheree sang ki sumat darirhaavau.
O my companions and fellow maidens, please implant that balanced understanding within me.

ਸੇਵਹੁ ਸਾਧੂ ਭਾਉ ਕਰਿ ਤਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਵਉ ॥੩॥
sevhu sadhu bhau kar tau nidh har paavo. ||3||
Serve the Holy Saints lovingly, and find the treasure of the Lord. ||3||

ਸਗਲੀ ਦਾਸੀ ਠਾਕੁਰੈ ਸਭ ਕਹਤੀ ਮੇਰਾ ॥
sagli daasi thaakurey sabh kehte mera.
All are servants of the Lord Master, and all call Him their own.

ਜਿਸਹਿ ਸੀਗਾਰੇ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੁਖਹਿ ਬਸੇਰਾ ॥੪॥੧੫॥੧੧੭॥
jisahi seegaaray naankaa tis sukheh basayraa. ||4||15||117||
She alone dwells in peace, O Nanak, whom the Lord adorns. ||4||15||117|
Have a blessed Sunday Peeps ☺

“Hey, Soul; Your only support is the Naam, the Name of the Lord.” Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji

Carrying on from last week, I felt a spiritual pull towards this Shabad, or hymn that is sung by an amazing artist, Manika Kaur. I have tried to find the lyrics and translation for you too. Her voice is amazing.

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 107

Image result for spideys serene sunday

With the spirit of #musicalmarch, we thought we’d go a bit Dharmic today, a bit spiritual.

 

“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.” Old Zen Saying

In my Sikh religion, Simran, or meditation, and singing of the Lord’s name is important. There are so many ways to do Simran, but one person who I really admire, is Veer Manpreet Singh. He travels the country and world to sing his version of a Simran, Tuhi Tuhi, and it is so relaxing. I have his app on my phone so I can listen to it and sing along whenever I want that peace.

Please, enjoy.

🙏

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 106 – #Loveuary❤ Special

img_00411.jpg

Today Spidey will quote a fellow blogger, who commented on last week’s post. We both loved the words, and felt they needed sharing!

“Love lasts many seasons and can last a lifetime if you tend its garden.” Tony Burgess

True love is not effortless. In order for it to last, you both need to put in the time and effort to keep it going.

It is ever changing, blossoming in different ways at each stage.

Each stage requires a different form of nurturing.

Love evolves when you’re with ‘The One’. Its face changes, your feelings morph, but as long as you are willing to move with it, change it, tend it, as Tony says, it will last a lifetime.

Happy Sunday Peeps! ❤
