wahegurushabads1
Waheguru is a term most often used in Sikhism to refer to God, the Supreme Being or the Creator of all.  It means “Wonderful Teacher” in the Punjabi language, but in this case is used to refer to God.  Sikhism has a strictly embodied tolerance of other faiths.  Essentially, there is one God, known by many different names and honoured by different modes of worship and each of these is respected.

All proceeds of this album will be donated to various Sikh and international aid charities.

Tracks Include

ikoangkarMool Mantar – The Mool Mantar is the first composition of Guru Nanak in the Sikh holy book, the Adi Granth.  It is a series of affirmations and is the basis of Sikh theology.  The Adi Granth begins with the Mool Mantar and is the most widely known part of Sikh scripture.

Jo Maageh – This hymn, a composition by Guru Arjan Dev, is a Shabad which promises compassion, forgiveness, mercy, and protection to the devotee who makes a supplication to the divine.

Mithr Piaarae Noo(n) – This Shabad is by the tenth master, Guru Gobind Singh, recited in the Machhivara forest when the Master was separated from everyone; though not absolutely everyone because the connection to the Lord always remains strong.

Thoo(n) Maeraa Pithaa – You are my Father, you are my Mother, my Kinsman, my Brother, My Guardian, everywhere, and now there’s nothing I fear By your grace I have recognised you.

KhandaKhalsa Soi – This Shabad was written by Bhai Nand Lal, a poet famous in the Sikh tradition and favourite disciple of Guru Gobind Singh. His poetry, all in Persian, forms part of the approved Sikh canon and can be recited along with scriptural verse at Sikh religious divans.

Jaa Kaa Meet – Gyani Ajit Singh has been performing Shabads for many decades and this is the first time one of his performances has been recorded for an album.  The perfect opportunity to bring together the traditional and the modern…

Na Hum Hindu – Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of the Sikh religion, wrote “I am not a Hindu, nor am I a Muslim” to emphasise the universality of humanity.  He also sermonized that all faiths lead to the same God.

Bhinnee Rainrhee-Ae – May my mind remain awake to experience the True Essence of Naam and Gurbani.

About Sikhism

GuruNanakDevJi

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion founded during the 15th century in the Punjab region by Guru Nanak Dev Ji and continued to progress with ten successive Sikh Gurus (the last teaching being the holy scripture, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib).  Adherents of Sikhism are known as Sikhs (students or disciples) and it is the fifth largest organised religion in the world with over 30 million followers.

Sikhs are expected to embody the qualities of a “Sant-Sipahi”—a saint-soldier. One must have control over one’s internal vices and be able to be constantly immersed in virtues clarified in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

The principal beliefs of Sikhism are faith in Waheguru – represented by the phrase ‘ik oa(n)kaar’, meaning ‘One God’, who prevails in everything, along with a praxis in which the Sikh is enjoined to engage in social reform through the pursuit of justice for all human beings.  Sikhism teaches that God is Akal Purakh (eternal) and advocates the pursuit of salvation in a social context through the congregational practice of meditation on the name and message of God.  The followers of Sikhism are ordained to follow the teachings of the ten Sikh Gurus, or enlightened leaders, as well as the holy scripture entitled the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, which, along with the writings of six of the ten Sikh Gurus, includes selected works of many devotees from diverse socio-economic and religious backgrounds.  Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth Guru, conferred the leadership of the Sikh community to the Sri Guru Granth Sahib and the corporate body of the Khalsa Panth.  Sikhism’s traditions and teachings are associated with the history, society and culture of Punjab.
