Hukamnaama Katha – simrant sant sarbatr ramnan – Sikh Retreat 2016
Baljit Singh shares the translation of the hukamnaama ‘aad pooran madh pooran ant pooran parmesureh’. He talks about what ‘simrant’ really means, and the state of mind that Gursikhs have where they see Vaheguru in everyone and in everything. He shares a Sakhi of Bhai Nand Lal Ji (one of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s 52 poets), and also of Bhai Lehna Ji (Name of Guru Angad Dev Ji before taking Guruship).
This is a must watch video to give us some real perspective on the Avastha (state of mind) we should be looking to achieve, and how we can improve our lives to become like the beloved Gursikhs such as Bhai Nand Lal Ji.
Side note: This shabad (hymn) marks the middle point of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It is at this point that ardas (supplication) would be carried out and degh (sweet pudding) would be prepared during an Akhand Paatth (uninterrupted recitation of SGGSJi), or reading of Sehaj Paatth (Recitation of SGGJi at one’s own pace with breaks).
