Japji Sahib


"I am Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva"

"I am Manifest Divinity, Unmanifest Divinity, and Transcendent Divinity. I am Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, as well as Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. I am the Sun and I am the Stars, and I am also the Moon. I am all animals and birds, and I am the outcaste as well, and the thief. I am the low person of dreadful deeds, and the great person of excellent deeds. I am Female, I am Male, and I am Neuter."

Srimad Devi Bhagavatam, VII.33.13-15, cited in Brown(a), p. 186.


Devi is the source of Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh-vara

"The Devi, as Para-brahman, is beyond all form and guna. The forms of the Mother of the Universe are threefold. There is first the Supreme (para) form, of which, as the Vishnu-yamala says, "none know." There is next her subtle (sukshma) form, which consists of mantra. But as the mind cannot easily settle itself upon that which is formless, She appears as the subject of contemplation in Her third, or gross (sthula), or physical form, with hands and feet and the like as celebrated in the Devi-stotra of the Puranas and Tantras. Devi, who as Prakriti is the source of Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh-vara, has both male and female forms."

Shiva and Shakti
www.globusz.com/ebooks/Mahanirvana/shiva.html


"She is said by munis to be the ancient womb of the universe"

"In the Brahma Pr., in the Lalitapakhyana, Devi says, “My male form is bewildering the milk-maids.” In the same place Visnu says to Virabhadra, “The ancient Sakti of the Lord is divided into four forms, that Sakti becomes Bhavani in its ordinary form [bhoga], in battle she takes the form of Durga; in anger that of Kali; and she is also my male form.”

The Kurma Pr. when Himavin praises Devi says, “I salute thy form called Narayana, O Lalita, which has a thousand heads, which is of infinite energy, having a thousand arms, the ancient Person, reclining on the waters.”

In the Kurma Pr. when Siva showed his universal form to Mankanaka, the latter said: “What is this terrible form of thine, facing every side; who is she shining by your side?” Thus questioned, Siva, after explaining the glory of his own nature, says, “She is my supreme maya and prakrti of triple qualities. She is said by munis to be the ancient womb of the universe.” ”

The word Sat Guru appears more than 2500 times in the Guru Granth Sahib

SATGURU

"Satguru or Sadguru (Sanskrit) means true guru. The term distinguishes itself from other forms of gurus, such as musical instructors, scriptural teachers, parents, and so on. The satguru is a title given specifically only to an enlightened rishi/sant whose life's purpose is to guide initiated shishya along the spiritual path, the summation of which is the realization of the Self through realization of the God.

Ancient and traditional sources
The recommendation says that the first and the foremost qualification of the True Master (Satguru) is that he must have known the True Lord (God) himself. [1]

In one of Kabir's songs[2] the satguru is described as the real sadhu:

"He is the real Sadhu, who can reveal the form of the Formless to the vision of these eyes; Who teaches the simple way of attaining Him, that is other than rites or ceremonies; Who does not make you close the doors, and hold the breath, and renounce the world; Who makes you perceive the Supreme Spirit wherever the mind attaches itself; Who teaches you to be still in the midst of all your activities. Ever immersed in bliss, having no fear in his mind, he keeps the spirit of union in the midst of all enjoyments. The infinite dwelling of the Infinite Being is everywhere: in earth, water, sky, and air; Firm as the thunderbolt, the seat of the seeker is established above the void. He who is within is without: I see Him and none else."[3]

Other usages
- In Sikhism, Satguru symbolizes a mediator and directs one toward God. it also means the Wisdom from inside
- In path to self-realization, Satguru is the one who initiates followers into the path.

Satguru

Satguru means true guru. (Gurmukhi sat=true; Guru=en-lightener); literally: true teacher. It is usually used to refer to God, but can be interchanged with Guru. The word appears more than 2500 times in the Guru Granth Sahib. It implies that the students have faith that the guru can be trusted and will lead them to moksha, enlightenment or inner peace.

SGGS Page 10
Jo satgur saran sangat nahi ae dharig jive dharig jivas.
Those who have not sought the Sanctuary of the True Guru and the Sangat, the Holy Congregation; cursed are their lives, and cursed are their hopes of life.

http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Satguru


Question: What is the qualification of a guru? What should a guru be?

Shri Mataji: "See, it was asked to Guru Nanaka and he said, "Sahib mili hain so hi sat guru." Meaning: the one who makes you meet the Divine is the only one who is the SatGuru; who is the Guru. Otherwise all the rest are useless. Then he has categorized them as agurus, kugurus, he has categorized them. But the one who is a SatGuru, the one who is the real Guru is the one who makes you meet God; makes you meet this Divine power."

Note: In THE MOTHER (Aykaa Mayee) alone can we find the ultimate source of refuge, reverence, revelation, wisdom, enlightenment, liberation, eternity, and end of all spiritual seeking.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji

Guru Govind Rai (Singh) in Line Of Shri Rama And Shri Krishna by V. Wadher

Punjab, rightly claimed as the traditional sword-arm of Bharatvarsha, has valiantly borne the first brunt of all the pre- European aggressors upon her. And one of the most luminous stars which rose in that northwestern horizon and shed its luster over the entire length and breadth of the country is undoubtedly Guru Govind Singh (born at Patna on Maargashtra Shukla Saptami -the 7th Day of bright half of Maargashira, i.e. 24 December 1666) the tenth and the final Guru in the holy tradition initiated by the great saint Guru Nanak. In fact, his life of pain and fortitude is a saga without many parallels in he world.

Rightly, Guru Govind Singh inherited the legacy of the fearless martyrdom of his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur. Guru Tegh Bahadur, with a view to instilling courage and confidence among the Kashmiri Hindus to withstand Aurangzeb's fanatical tyranny and threats to Islamize them, challenged the Moghal emperor to convert him first. And the great Guru preferred to have his head roll down in Chandni Chowk of Delhi rather than sacrifice his faith. Govind was just a boy of nine years at that time. On coming to know of his father's terrible end he exclaimed: "He saved with his blood the honor of Hindu Dharma. Oh, what a remarkable act in this Kaliyuga! He preferred to give up his life, but not his faith!"

It is with such a fiery note of idealism that the young Govind Rai embarked upon his life-mission even from his infancy. As a child he had drunk deep at the fount of Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the Puranas. He was inspired with the heroic examples of Sri Rama, Sri Krishna, Bheema and Arjuna. He felt convinced that he too like those great forbears was born to vanquish the wicked and to protect Dharma. He began preparing himself in a thorough fashion to play that historic role.
Though engaged with a very busy life, Guru Govind was a great patron of literature. The Guru himself wrote in all genres of poetry, though his forte was martial poetry. His great passion was to get the entire Hindu mythology translated into Braj Bhasa, the lingua franca of those times. Where necessary he also made innovations. His 'Ramavtar` and 'Krishnavtar` are examples. He assimilated the spiritual truths enshrined in the Vedas, Upanishads and the Bhagavad Geeta. He became adept in the Persian, Arabic, and Punjabi languages, just as in Sanskrit and Hindi, and was a peerless poet as well.

As an archer he was unequalled in the whole of Hindusthan. No wonder, equipped as he was with such a rare combination of brahmateja and kshaatrateja, he wrote in his auto-biographical poem Bichitra Natak that he was commanded by God to take birth to uphold the true path of Dharma.

The clues to what Guru Govind Singh achieved are to be found in his autobiographical poem Bichitra Natak (the Resplendent Drama). The most interesting formulation in the Bichitra Natak is that the Guru Panth is an extension of the great Raghu dynasty to which Rama belonged. According to Guru Govind Singh, Guru Nanak is a direct descendant of Kush, the elder son of Rama, and Guru Govind Singh himself is a direct descendant of Lava, the younger son of Rama.

On what basis was the Guru to fight the Mughals? If he were just a rebel, he could not arouse Punjab. Besides, he was a Guru who had no business to fight the king. But if the kingdoms of Lahore and Kasur (it is believed that Kasur was founded by Kush and Lahore by Lava) were in fact the legacy of the Gurus themselves, then to fight for regaining the throne of Punjab would become the legitimate right of Guru Govind Singh. Even in his person the Guru had started wearing a bow and a quiver of arrows which were the two distinguishing marks of Lord Rama.

According to ancient Punjabi tradition, Lava and Kush were born in Punjab. Ram Tirath, a place some miles away from Amritsar, is known to have been the hermitage of Valmiki where Sita took refuge when Rama banished her. The sage is known to have brought up Lava and Kush.

Govind Singh wrote that in his past life, he was a Rishi who performed great penances at Hemkunt. He has given a graphic description of a place in the Himalayas ensconced by twelve mountain peaks. It was here that he was ordained by the Param Purukh to take another birth for the specific purpose of uprooting adharma. This story went well with the kind of life he led and the things he achieved. He was born to Guru Tegh Bahadur because the latter too was propitiating God to bless him with a great son. The whole stance of this story is the same as of Dasaratha who also performed penances in his earlier birth and was blessed by the Lord that He himself would be born to him.

In the tradition of Lord Rama, Guru Govind Singh performed a year- long Chandi Yagna at Naina Devi (the shrine of the Goddess of beautiful eyes) overlooking Anandpur Sahib before launching upon his mission. Lord Rama had done the same before marching into Lanka. The Goddess, pleased with his austerities, had blessed Rama with victory. Lord Krishna had taken Arjuna to the temple of the Goddess for seeking her blessings before the battle with the Kauravas.

According to tradition, Chandi is the ruling deity of the Jalander Peeth, the triangle pervaded by the Goddess of which Jalander, Kulu and Vaishno Devi form the three angles. In Punjab when the Shaktas (the worshippers of Shakti) ruled the roost, the Mother was known to be residing in every nook and corner of the triangle, alternatively known as the Trigarth Peeth. The important shrines of the Goddess in this region bear testimony to this point. There are Ambala (Ambalaya - the home of the Goddess), Chandigarh (the fortress of the Goddess), Kalka (abode of Kali), Naina Devi (in the Shivaliks), Asa Devi (in the Dhaulaladhars), Hidimba (in the Kulu hills), Vajreshwari (the Mother of Thunderbolt) at Kangra, Jwala Devi (the Mother of the Flaming Mouth) at Jwala Mukhi, Chintpuri in Hosiarpur and finally Vaishno Devi (the Vaishnavi Mother) in the Jammu Hills.

Jaap Sahib
From SikhiWiki

Jaap is the Bani uttered by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the Tenth Guru, the Tenth Nanak. It is one of the Five Banis recited by the Panj Pyare while preparing Amrit on the occasion of Amrit Sanchaar (initiation), a ceremony held to admit initiates into the Khalsa Brotherhood. Jaap Sahib is Guru Gobind Singh's tribute to 'TRUTH god' , wherein TRUTH god's magnanimity, implied in Japji Sahib and Satgur Granth Sahib, has been composed in ONE. It is the second Bani in the daily morning prayers of a Sikh.

Form
Jaap Sahib is made up of 199 verses and is the first Bani of the Dasam Granth (p.1-10). The Jaap Sahib begins with "Sri Mukhwakh Patshahi Dasvee," "By the holy mouth of the Tenth King." This appears to be a specific saying to authenticate the writings of Guru Gobind Singh himself.

Macauliffe says, "The Hindus have a work enitled Vishnu Sahasar Nam, 'Vishnu's Thousand Names.' The Jaapji was composed to supply the Sikhs with a similar number of epithets of the Creator." Jap is a Sanskrit word which means "to utter in a low voice, whisper, mutter (especially prayers or incantations); to invoke or call upon in a low voice." The form of the word here is Japu, which makes it a noun, meaning "meditation on nothing but TRUTH 'god'."

Language
The language of Jaap, is close to classical with words and compounds drawn from Sanskrit, Brij Bhasha, Arabic and Persian. The contents of Jaap Sahib, are divided into various Chhands bearing the name of the related meter according to the then prevalent system of prosody in India.

In most of the verses God is described in negative terms. As all these verses are in the form of rhymed couplets, the vocabularly and ingenuity of the poet are superb. The opening verse is typical:

"Thou hast no form or feature,
No caste or lineage;
None can describe Thy appearence,
Colour, mark or garb."

There is an all inclusiveness and universalism that keeps coming to the surface. "All" seems to be the key word as the poet breaks through to more positive description:

"Thou art the source of all light,
And the object of all praise;
Thou art the supreme Lord of all,
And the moon of the Universe."

-Verse 119

"Perfect is Thy discernment.
All turn to Thee for refuge.
Thou art the Great Companion;
Thou art the sure Providence."

-Verse 123

The fervour of the true Bhakta comes out in hailing the immortal as man's companion. Something of the devoutness of the Guru's nature comes to a climax in the concluding verse:

"Thou fillest and feedest the whole universe,
Thyself self-existent, auspicious and united with all.
Thou art the embodiment of mercy;
Thou art the deliverer from birth and death.
Thou art man's constant Companion.
Everlasting is Thy glory!"

Among the thousand names there are seventy-five Muslim names. Only a few of these, such as Rahim and Karim, Razakai (Nourisher), Aruv (Pardoner), and Salamai (Peaceful) are among the Muslim's ninety-nine names of Allah: but all the names used would be familiar to Punjabi Muslims. The Mohammadan tongue and ear would surely delight in Allah and Nirsharik; Karimur Rahim; Husnul Chirag, Garibun Niwaz; Kamal Karim; Rajak Rahim; Bahistun Niwas; and many such others.

Content
The immortal One is for Guru Gobind Singh sometimes the 'wholly Other,' far above human comprehension, before whom man can but bow again and again. As the suceeding waves of negative attributes roll on one may well wander how there can be any communication with this inscrutable Being. The answer is, of course, that He of his grace has offered companionship to man, so that man does not have to understand, but only to accept and adore. Sikhism offers a new path of salvation in addition to the traditional paths of knowledge, work and devotion - the path of the Name, Naam. Meditation on Name produces Wismad, wonder; and the object of such poetry as the Japp Sahib is the creation of the mood of asthetic ecstasy: Sher Singh in the Philosophy of Sikhism writes: "It is the poetry and the music of the contents of the Granth revealing simple and direct truths which charm a reader of Gurbani...and can bring peace to the soul." "It is the aesthetical insight leading man through appearence to reality." Meditation on the Name is fundamental to Sikhism, and so in this opening hymn of the Dasam Granth, men are given a thousand names on which to meditate.

Summary
Jaap Sahib is a rhythmic hymn composed like a necklace with pearls and gems beauteously arranged around a string: the string is the Supreme God; the pearls and gems are His attributes, excellences, and glories. The glories sung by Guru Sahib revolve around the following attributes of God:

- God is metaphysical , beyond time, Eternal, Unborn, Uncreated, Self- existant, and withour form, feature, colour or contour. Therefore, neither can He be described or depicted, nor can anyone make His image or idol.

- God is Universally Pervasive in His manifestations. He cannot be confined to any particular place, land, country, religion, race, garb, body or name.

- God is the Creator of the Universe and the laws governing it. Never can anyone outside the ambit of these laws nor can anyone have the power to oppose them. His Law and Justice is Righteous and Ultimate. God is pervasive in His Creation and also extends beyond it; He is thus Immanent in His Creation and at the same time Transcends it. God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient; nothing, whether good or evil, can happen outside of His Will; He is the Creator-Sustainer- Annuller of His Creation. He Himself is the Life of life, the Death of death. He Himself is the Darkness of darkness, the Light of light.
