About "Satgur Daata"
I am so EXCITED and super super GRATEFUL TO ANNOUNCE...
My song Sathgur Daata of my upcoming new album Sathgur Daata is out now on all platforms.
This is a Gurbani Track from Shri Guru Amardas Ji, the 3rd Guru of Sikh Tradition, this is a call to the Divine to unite the being with the supreme and to give the guidance and knowledge of the Naam - the word.
sorath mehlaa 3.
Sorath, Third Mehl:

bin satgur seve bahuta dukh laga jug chare bharmayi.
ham deen tum jug jug date sabde deh bujhayi. ||1||

Without serving the True Guru, he suffers in terrible pain, and throughout the four ages, he wanders aimlessly.
I am poor and meek, and throughout the ages, You are the Great Giver - please, grant me the understanding of the Shabad. ||1||

har jiyo kirpa karo tum pyare.
satgur data mel milavhu har naam devoh adare. rahaa-o.

O Dear Beloved Lord, please show mercy to me.
Unite me in the Union of the True Guru, the Great Giver, and give me the support of the Lord's Name. ||Pause||

mansa mar dubida saj samani paya naam apara.
har ras chakh man nirmal hoya kilbikh katanhara. ||2||

Conquering my desires and duality, I have merged in celestial peace, and I have found the Naam, the Name of the Infinite Lord.
I have tasted the sublime essence of the Lord, and my soul has become immaculately pure; the Lord is the Destroyer of sins. ||2||

sabad marahu fir jivhu sadhi ta fir maran na hoyi.
amrit naam sada man mita sabde pawe koi. ||3||

Dying in the Word of the Shabad, you shall live forever, and you shall never die again.
The Ambrosial Nectar of the Naam is ever-sweet to the mind; but how few are those who obtain the Shabad. ||3||

date dat rakhi hath apne jis bave tis dayi.
nanak naam rate sukh paya darge jape sayi. ||4||11||

The Great Giver keeps His Gifts in His Hand; He gives them to those with whom He is pleased.
O Nanak, imbued with the Naam, they find peace, and in the Court of the Lord, they are exalted. ||4||11||
