Gurbani Santhaya
The celebrations of the 300 years of Guru Granth Sahib Gur Gaddi Divas are in full swing. In my local gurudwara I found these celebrations to be most unique.There is a Larivar Gurbani Santhaya everyday.Though there are not many people but still its heartening to see some very young participants. I think instead of spending huge amount of funds on Lavish Nagar kirtans and fire works we should motivate more youngsters to participate in gurbani Santhaya and understand Guru's hukum.Unless and until we understand the Gurbani , all other celebrations are a waste .Guru Sahib makes it very clear

ਸਲੋਕੁ ਮਃ 3 ॥
ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਨੋ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਵੇਖਦਾ ਜੇਤਾ ਜਗਤੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ॥
ਡਿਠੈ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਵਈ ਜਿਚਰੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਨ ਕਰੇ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥
ਹਉਮੈ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਚੁਕਈ ਨਾਮਿ ਨ ਲਗੈ ਪਿਆਰੁ ॥
ਇਕਿ ਆਪੇ ਬਖਸਿ ਮਿਲਾਇਅਨੁ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਤਜਿ ਵਿਕਾਰ ॥
ਨਾਨਕ ਇਕਿ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਦੇਖਿ ਮਰਿ ਮਿਲੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹੇਤਿ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥1॥

salok ma 3 |
sathigur no sabh ko vaekhadhaa jaethaa jagath sansaar |
ddithai mukath n hovee jichar sabadh n karae veechaar |
houmai mail n chukee naam n lagai piaar |
eik aapae bakhas milaaeian dhubidhaa thaj vikaar |
naanak eik dharasan dhaekh mar milae sathigur haeth piaar |1|

Shalok, Third Mehl:
All the living beings of the world behold the True Guru.
One is not liberated by merely seeing Him, unless one contemplates the Word of His Shabad.
The filth of ego is not removed, and he does not enshrine love for the Naam.
The Lord forgives some, and unites them with Himself; they forsake their duality and sinful ways.
O Nanak, some behold the Blessed Vision of the True Guru's Darshan, with love and affection; conquering their ego, they meet with the Lord. ||1||
