RE MAN SHABAD
Whenever I am at a mental threshold with my thoughtforms or in my heart and need a cleansing, a purification and also an amplification of my true self,
I recite the Re Man Shabad to remind me of my true golden nature.
Re man eh bidh jog kamao
Singhee saach akapat kanthala
Dhiaan bibhoot charhaao
Taatee gaho aatam bas kar kee
Bichaa naam adhaarang
Baaje param taar tat har ko
Upajay raag rasaarang
Ughatay taan tarang rang atay giaan geet bandhaanang
Chak chak rahay dayv daanav mun
Chhak chaak biyom bivaanang
Aatam upadays bhays sanjam ko
Jaap so ajapa jaapay
Sada rahay kanchan si kaya
Kaal na kabahoo byaapay
Oh my mind practice Yoga in this way ~
Let Truth be your horn, sincerity your necklace, and meditation the ashes you apply on your body.
Catch your burning soul (self) and stop the flames. Let the soul (self) be the alms bowl in which you collect the sweet Naam and this will be the only support you will ever need.
The Universe plays its divine music. The sound of reality is shrill, but this is where God is.
When you listen to the reality from this place of awareness the sweet essence of Raag arises.
Waves of melodies, emotions, and passions arise and flow through you. Bind yourself with the song of God.
The Universe spins like a potter's wheel and from it fly demons and angels. The sage listens to this and instead of getting caught in either one, the sage drinks in the nectar of the heavens and is carried to the heavens in a divine chariot.
Instruct and clothe yourself with self control. Meditate unto infinity until you are meditating without meditating.
In this way, your body shall remain forever golden, and death shall never approach you.
"Guru Gobind Singh's entire bani is meant to penetrate through the mental
body, right into your own spirit. The secret of this bani; it is a pure Naad
Yoga. It is in Brij Baashaa language.
The combination and permutation of sound is totally practical in his bani.
The tongue creates a certain pressure on the upper palate. This shabad has
the capacity, if man is bewitched by incurable disease, if sung properly
through the tongue and mouth, can bring total health. Each sound must be
said exactly correctly. It can lead to perfect state of mental health and
Perfection of this shabad can make you like a Golden Buddha. You will have
wisdom, you will have purity of a yogi, and you will have an essence. I
request everyone who believes in higher values to remember this shabad in
perfect sound. It is very perfect combination. As a shabad you can sing 11
times a day, you will feel the miraculous effect of it on your body, mind,
and soul." ~ Yogi Bhajan
