Hitesh frequents our temple ashram and this evening just before a small group of us headed for Bloor West for a chanting party, he handed me a piece of the Guru Granth Sahib. He had visited a Gurudwar over the weekend, was happy to note a translation on the wall and wanted to share it with me.
From Ang: 693 - 694
First of all, the lotuses bloomed in the woods; from them, all the swan-souls came into being. Know that, through Krishna, the Lord, Har, Har, the dance of creation dances.
1) First of all, there was only the Primal Being. From that Primal Being, Maya was produced. All that is, is His. In this Garden of the Lord, we all dance, like water in the pots of the Persian wheel.
2) Pause/Women and men both dance. There is no other then the Lord. Don't dispute this, and don't doubt this. The Lord says, "This creation and I are one and the same."
3) Like the pots on the Persian wheel, sometimes the world is high, and sometimes it is low. Wandering and roaming around I have come at last to Your Door. "Who are you?" "I am Naam Daya, Sir." Oh Lord, please save me from Maya, the cause of death.
The words above are inspiring and like others found in the Sikh traditional text, it confirms the link between the Vedas of India and the teachings of the Sikh's founder, Guru Nanak.
May the Source be with you!
