Those Long Separated Are United Once Again
Click to Watch Video: Hymn of Guru Nanak: Rivers and Streams Which Separate May Be Re-united:
"A moment without sight of You passes painfully as a long dark age. When shall I see you now, my blessed Beloved? Your face is beautiful, and the music of Your sweet Word brings peace within. It has been so long since I caught a glimpse of You. I yearn for you as a soaring bird for water. Blessed is the land where You dwell, my good and beloved Friend." (From Shabdad Hazare, translated in, The Name of My Beloved, Verses of the Sikh Gurus, Devotional Poetry from the Guru Granth and the Dasam Granth, Nikky Singh, The Sacred Literature Trust Series)
Guru Nanak: "The love of Maya is sweet to the world, but in the end, this delusion is dispelled. So perform devotional worship, link your consciousness to the Lord, and dispel anxiety from your mind. Nanak speaks the Truth; focus your consciousness on the Lord, O my stranger soul. Rivers and streams which separate may re-united sometime.
That rare person who centers his consciousness on the True Guru, knows intuitively and realizes the Lord.
Nanak speaks the Truth; through the True Word of the Shabad, those long separated from the Lord, are united once again." (Shabad of Guru Nanak in Raag Aasaa on Ang 438 of Adi Granth)
