Mera Baid Guru Govinda..ਮੇਰਾ ਬੈਦੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੋਵਿੰਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਉਖਧੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਦੇਵੈ ਕਾਟੈ ਜਮ ਕੀ ਫੰਧਾ

 Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 618

Shabad Interpretation in English:

He dispels the pains of countless incarnations, and lends support to the dry and shriveled mind. Beholding the Blessed Vision of His Darshan, one is enthralled, contemplating the Name of the Lord. My physician is the Guru, the Lord of the Universe. He places the medicine of the Naam into my mouth, and cuts away the noose of Death. He is the all-powerful, Perfect Lord, the Architect of Destiny; He Himself is the Doer of deeds. The Lord Himself saves His slave; Nanak takes the Support of the Naam.

 Shabad Veyakheya in Punjabi:

Shabad Interpretation in Hindi:

हे भाई, मेरा परमात्मा स्वरुप गुरु हर रोग एवं मुश्किल का इलाज करने जोग है. मेरा गुरु मुझे, 

हरी नाम रूपी दवा प्रदान करता है जिस से जनम मरण के दुखों का नाश होजाता है. मेरा गुरु 

कई जन्मों के दुखों का निवारण करता है और निराश मन में भी खुशी प्रदान करता है. उस के 

दर्शन एवं हरि नाम स्मरण से मन निहाल हो जाता है. हे समस्त शक्ती के मालिक, सरब 

विआपक, सभी जीवों को पैदा करने वाले, सभी कार्य के करता प्रभु, नानक कहते हैं, जो मानुष 

हरि नाम को अपना आधार मान लेता हे प्रभु उस सेवक को इस जनम के दुखों से बचा लेता है.



  1. Armageddon Thru To You

    If you've wondered why it seems like the world around us is unraveling, it's because the last days as foretold in the bible are now upon us. Just as it was 2000 years ago, many were unable to discern the signs of Jesus Christ's first coming (Mat 16:3), as will many concerning his second coming, which will occur very soon. Yes many have proclaimed a similar sentiment many times in the past, but their errors have no bearing on today other than to lull you into spiritually apathy, and that too was prophesied to occur in the last days.

    If you're not a believer in Jesus Christ because you're an atheist, consider that the underlying impetus for your disbelief is most likely borne of pride and here's why:

    When we die, if you as an atheist were right, then there is no upside or downside for anyone regarding the afterlife. We will all simply cease to exist

    However if we Christians were right about our belief in the afterlife, we will be given eternal life and you as an atheist will receive eternal damnation

    Given the choices, the position held by an atheist is a fools bet any way you look at it because the atheist has everything to lose and nothing to gain. It's tantamount to accepting a “heads I win, tails you lose” coin toss proposition from someone, and that someone is Satan even though you might not want to acknowledge in time.

    The only way to explain the attitude held by an atheist is pride, pure and simple. The intellectually dishonest and/or tortured reasoning used by atheists to try and disprove the existence of God is nothing more than attempts to posture themselves as superior (a symptom of pride). And as anyone who has read their bible knows, this is precisely the character flaw that befell Lucifer, God's formerly most high angel. (Isaiah 14:12-15). Is it any wonder then why the bible is so replete with references to pride as the cause of mankind's downfall?

    Pride permeates our lives and burdens us in ways that most of us seldom recognize. Ironically, pride is the one thing that can blind someone to things even the unsighted can see. And sadly pride will blind many with an otherwise good heart, to accepting the offer of eternal salvation that Christ bought and paid for with his life.

    In any event, if you're an atheist, I wish you only the best for every day of the rest of your life because for you, this life is as close to heaven as you'll ever get, but for believers, this life is as close to hell as we'll ever get.

    If you're not a believer and follower of Jesus Christ because you are of another faith, please take the time to very carefully compare your faith to Christianity and ask yourself, why is the bible the only religious book with both hundreds of proven prophecies already fulfilled as well as those being fulfilled today? No other religion can claim anything remotely close to this fact. Many Christians who are serious students of bible prophecy are already aware of the role and significance of bible prophecy in foretelling end time events. God gave us prophecy as evidence of his divine holiness to know the begining from the end (Isa 46:10). God also believed prophecy to be so important that to those willing to read the most prophetic book in the bible, the Book of Revelation, he promised a special blessing (see Rev 1:3), and this is the only book in the bible that God gives its reader a special blessing for reading. Something to think about.

    Don't risk losing Christ's offer of eternal life by not accepting him as your savior and by thinking that the bible is nothing more than a compilation of unrelated and scattered stories about people who lived 2,000 plus years ago. If you take the time to study (not just read) the bible, you will literally be shocked to learn things you would have never imagined would be revealed in it. Did you know that like parables, God also uses particular months and days in the Jewish calendar, Jewish Feasts and customs, solar and lunar phases, celestial alignments, gematria (Hebrew numerology) early bible events and more as patterns and models to foretell future events?

    Consider the following interesting facts about the bible that testify to its God-inspired authorship:

    Did you know that in Gen 12:2, God said he would bless Israel?. How else can you explain the grossly disproportionate level of success achieved by Jewish people as a tiny minority in the world, especially after all they have gone through? And how can you explain the success achieved by the tiny nation of Israel, surrounded by enemies outnumbering them 100 to 1 and yet still they remain victorious in all their wars?

    Did you know that as evidence to indicate that Israel is the epicenter of the world from God's point of view is the fact that languages to the west of Israel are written and read from left to right as if pointing to Israel, and languages from countries to the east of Israel are written and read from right to left, again as though pointing to Israel. Just a coincidence, you say? I think not.

    Did you know that the six days of creation and seventh day of rest in Genesis is a model for the six thousand years of this age (ending very soon), that is to be followed by a 1,000 year millennial reign by Christ (see 2 Peter 3:8)? Adam was born sometime prior to 4000 B.C., therefore our 6000 years are almost up.

    Did you kow that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is hidden in the meaning of the Hebrew names listed in the genealogy of the book of Genesis (Research it online)? To deny this was God-inspired, one has to instead believe that a group of Jewish rabbis conspired to hide the Christian Gospel right inside a genealogy of their venerated Torah, which is not a very plausible explanation.

    Did you know that solar eclipses, which in the bible describes as the sun being black as sackcloth, and lunar eclipses, which in the bible are referred to as blood red moons, have prophetic meaning? Research it online. God showed Adam (and us) his plan for man's redemption through the use of celestial alignments. (research Mazzaroth online)

    Did you know that much of the symbolism in the book of revelation refers to planetary alignments that will occur when certain events occur as prophecied? These planetary alignments also explained the birth of Christ, just search out The Bethlehem Star movie on the Internet.

    Did you know that the references in Eze 39:4-17 and Rev 19:17-21 in the battle of Gog/Magog and Armageddon respectively in which birds of prey will eat the flesh of the dead in battle from a great war is based on fact? The largest bird migration in the world consisting of bilions of birds (34 species of raptors and various carrion birds) from several continents converge and fly over Israel every spring and fall.

    Did you know that Hebrew numerology, also known as Gematria, and the numbers with biblical and prophetic significance are hidden in the Star of David? Google the video called "Seal of Jesus Christ"

    Did you know that the seven Churches mentioned at the beginning of the Book of Revelation describe the seven stages the Church will go through?

    There are literally hundreds of hidden messages in the bible like these that testify to the fact that the bible was God inspired. You can find them yourselves if you only take the time to look into it. Remember Proverbs 25:2 "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings".

    And finally, if you are Catholic, or one who subscribes to the emergent Church or seeker-friendly Church movement, please compare the doctrine taught, advocated or accepted by your Church, with the actual bible, notwithstanding a new-age version of the bible. And remember that although the bible is often referred to as the living bible, the word "living" was never intended to imply in any way that the bible "evolves" over time to meet, or be consistent with, the standards of man. It's just the opposite.

    Well, am I getting through to you? If not, the answer might be explained in the response given by Jesus Christ in his Olivet discourse when he was asked by his disciples why he spoke the way he did (parables, etc.) in the book of Matthew 13:10-16. What Jesus said could have easily been paraphrased more clearly as "so that the damned won't get it". Why did Christ respond the way he did when asked why he spoke this way. Is there something about pride (the bible says there is) that closes one's heart to seeing or hearing the messages supernaturally hidden in bible parables, models, typologies, and similes, etc.? That should give you something to think about, but don't take too long. Time is now very short.

    If it sometimes seems like there are powers at work behind the powers we know, remember what it says in Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." If you study the bible, it will become clearer.

    And by the way, if you are a scoffer, this too was prophesied to occur in the last days. See 2 Peter 3:3.

    Thank you and God Bless you!

  2. To Armageddon thru to you,
    Firstly, How dare you try to preach Christianity in a Gurbani blog which has nothing to do with religion whatsoever. This blog is for Gurbani kirtan which have been sung in raises of Dear God by Sikh ladies. In Sikhism, we too believe that Armageddon is approaching near and soon, but unlike you, we believe that God Himself will come down NOT TO destroy all ( As you believe ) but to unite ALL religions and faiths together. We believe in our great Gurus and the great sacrfices they have made so that we may happily live through our lives singing the great praises of the Lord and chanting His name ( Waheguru ).
    And in our glorious religion, we are taught to love and respect all other religions and not criticise those who are not Sikhs.
    Just as you have your holy Bible, we have our Respected Guru Granth Sahib Ji which doesn't phrophesize about the future about how bleak and terrifying end may come upon us, but instead has the glorious teachings of our beloved Gurus Teaching us how to live our life the right way choosing the right path and doing good to others. In doing so, this will decide our fate at the end.
    If you are truly looking for ANSWERS, then maybe you could try to read our holy Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. You'll get your answers.
    Good Luck and Thank you.
    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

  3. Dear Anonaymous

    You have given a very appropriate advice to 'Armageddon Thru to you' and hope he reads Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to gain some useful spritual knowledge instead to remaining entangled in some wishful thinking.

  4. my doctor is guru govind ...( lord krishna)..........hari hari means ..vishnu....please speak truth dont interprate gurbani in your own selfish interests...

    1. Gurubani has been interpreted very well. If you have ever heard of Guru Govind Singh, you should understand Guru Govind has been referred here not Lord Krishna :)

      Moreover about greatness of Guru hope you have heard this,
      "Guru Govind dou khade, kake lagoon paay,
      Balihari Guru aapno, Govind diyo batay"

      Please do a deep study of Gita by Lord Krishna and may be then you would be able to understand the fact properly.

  5. Thankur ji
    Gobind or Hari or for that matter many other Words humanity uses, all relate to that Almighty who has created this universe and is the nourisher of all of us.
    Only a poor and immature mind brings down the magnanimity and greatness of the Creator of this Universe to the level of mortals.

  6. Thankur ji

    Gobind or Krishna or call Him Hari
    Doesn't matter a wee bit, if you call Him Mari
    It Does Matter a lot if you call Him Maari or Mine
    He is no richer if you give Him a Dime
    He is no poorer if you rob all His Dime

    Man, He is too Big for all our Words
    He never cares for all the Curd
    He is not worried even if you do not call Him for help
    But He is always there in His True Self.

  7. When Damascus Syria gets nuked (Book of Isaiah, Chapter 17 in the bible) in the coming weeks or months, then maybe you'll open your eyes.

    1. It's been 6 years... your predictions are garbage

  8. And when it doesn't, Armageddon Thru To You, when then?
