Hukamnama darbar sahib

ਰਾਗੁ ਵਡਹੰਸੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ਛੰਤ ਘਰੁ ੪
ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
Vadhans Mahala – 5 Chhant Ghar – 4 Ik onkar satgur prasad
“By the Grace of the Lord-sublime, Truth personified & attainable through the Guru ‘s guidance.”

ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲਿ ਲਧਾ ਜੀ ਰਾਮੁ ਪਿਆਰਾ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਇਹੁ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਦਿਤੜਾ ਵਾਰੋ ਵਾਰਾ ਰਾਮ ॥
ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਦਿਤਾ ਭਵਜਲੁ ਜਿਤਾ ਚੂਕੀ ਕਾਂਣਿ ਜਮਾਣੀ ॥ ਅਸਥਿਰੁ ਥੀਆ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਆ ਰਹਿਆ ਆਵਣ ਜਾਣੀ ॥
O Brother ! We have realised the beloved Lord through the Guru’s guidance, and now we have sacrificed this body and mind (soul) to the beloved Lord. Thus we have crossed this ocean (of life) successfully and won the battle of life by surrendering the body and mind.

Now we have no worry of the Yama (god of death) or to placate him. We have attained peace and stability of mind by partaking the nectar of True Name, thus saving ourselves from the cycle of birth and deaths.

ਸੋ ਘਰੁ ਲਧਾ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਧਾ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਧਾਰਾ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੁਖਿ ਮਾਣੇ ਰਲੀਆਂ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਕੰਉ ਨਮਸਕਾਰਾ ॥੧॥
We have realised the true form of the Lord and merged with Him by reciting and taking support of the True Name of the Lord. O Nanak ! Thus we have enjoyed the bliss of life by uniting with the Lord and we salute the perfect Guru. (1)

ਸੁਣਿ ਸਜਣ ਜੀ ਮੈਡੜੇ ਮੀਤਾ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਗੁਰਿ ਮੰਤ੍ਰੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਸਚੁ ਦੀਤਾ ਰਾਮ ॥
ਸਚੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਮੰਗਲੁ ਗਾਇਆ ਚੂਕੇ ਮਨਹੁ ਅਦੇਸਾ ॥ ਸੋ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਕਤਹਿ ਨ ਜਾਇਆ ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਬੈਸਾ ॥
ਪ੍ਰਭ ਜੀ ਭਾਣਾ ਸਚਾ ਮਾਣਾ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਹਰਿ ਧਨੁ ਸਹਜੇ ਦੀਤਾ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸੁ ਜਨ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ਤੇਰਾ ਦਾਨੁ ਸਭਨੀ ਹੈ ਲੀਤਾ ॥੨॥

O my friend ! You are my true friend and companion of my mind (soul). Please listen to me carefully. The Gum has imparted us the true teachings of the Lord (with confidence) and we have worshipped the Lord with love and devotion and have sung His praises (with the tongue) through the Guru’s Word.
O Nanak ! I would offer myself as a sacrifice to such Gursikhs, who have enjoyed the bliss of the Lord’s True Name through the company of holy saints. (2)

ਤਉ ਭਾਣਾ ਤਾਂ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਅਘਾਏ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਮਨੁ ਥੀਆ ਠੰਢਾ ਸਭ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨ ਬੁਝਾਏ ਰਾਮ ॥
ਮਨੁ ਥੀਆ ਠੰਢਾ ਚੂਕੀ ਡੰਝਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਖਜਾਨਾ ॥ ਸਿਖ ਸੇਵਕ ਸਭਿ ਭੁੰਚਣ ਲਗੇ ਹੰਉ ਸਤਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਕੁਰਬਾਨਾ ॥
ਨਿਰਭਉ ਭਏ ਖਸਮ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਾਤੇ ਜਮ ਕੀ ਤ੍ਰਾਸ ਬੁਝਾਏ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਾਸੁ ਸਦਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਤੇਰੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਕਰੰਉ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਏ ॥੩॥
O True Master ! We have been fully satiated from the time we have followed Your Will (Your dictates) and both the body and mind have experienced the thrill of Your unison.

We have attained peace and tranquillity of mind, having curbed all our worldly desires and attachments. The mind is stabilised by extinguishing the fire of worldly desires and attaining the treasure of the True Name.

Now I offer myself as a sacrifice to the True Lord as all the devotees and Sikhs are also enjoying the spiritual bliss as they are imbued with His love. They are now serving the Guru being fearless, having cast away the fear of Yama (god of death). O Nanak ! I am worshipping and serving the Lord as His devotee and slave by imbibing His love. (3)

ਪੂਰੀ ਆਸਾ ਜੀ ਮਨਸਾ ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ॥ ਮੋਹਿ ਨਿਰਗੁਣ ਜੀਉ ਸਭਿ ਗੁਣ ਤੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ॥
ਸਭਿ ਗੁਣ ਤੇਰੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਮੇਰੇ ਕਿਤੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਤੁਧੁ ਸਾਲਾਹੀ ॥ ਗੁਣੁ ਅਵਗੁਣੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਨ ਬੀਚਾਰਿਆ ਬਖਸਿ ਲੀਆ ਖਿਨ ਮਾਹੀ ॥
ਨਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਪਾਈ ਵਜੀ ਵਾਧਾਈ ਵਾਜੇ ਅਨਹਦ ਤੂਰੇ ॥ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਮੈ ਵਰੁ ਘਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ਮੇਰੇ ਲਾਥੇ ਜੀ ਸਗਲ ਵਿਸੂਰੇ ॥੪॥੧॥

0 my Lord ! All my desires and hopes have been fulfilled and the inner feelings (of vicious thoughts) have been curbed.

O True Master ! You are our Lord- benefactor and full of all virtues whereas I am lacking in any good qualities, being virtueless.

O My beloved Lord ! How could I sing Your praises as You are full of all virtues (or good deeds) having the purest and highest status ? You have pardoned all my failings and sins in a moment without considering my good or bad qualities (deeds).

I have now attained the True Name, the fountain-head of all the nine treasures, through your worship. I always hear the all-pervasive (unstrung) music of Nature, thus enjoying the eternal bliss of life. O Nanak ! I have attained unity with my Lord-Spouse within my innerself, which has helped me to get rid of all my sufferings and afflictions through His Grace. I am now enjoying the bliss of life as the Lord-Spouse now abides within myself having attained self-realisation. (4-1)
