Gurbani: Gaviai suniai

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh!
The other day, an older woman reminded me of this beautiful quote from Pauri 5 of Japji Sahib. I apologize for not knowing how to put Amrit Lipi fonts on the web. Translation courtesy of Harbans Singh Doabia.


Gaviai suniai man rakhiai bhao.
Sing the praises of God and keep love for Her in the heart.


Dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jae.
Then you will obtain joy in your mind and throw away your pain.



So many of us are hurting right now (consciously or subconsciously). Some of us have looked for and/or tried several different methods for soothing this pain. Perhaps Gurbani tells us of one possible solution...

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh!
