Healing the Wounds of Love by Guru Raj Kaur and Nirinjan Kaur

I love when we are able to share new releases that really offer a tool for people to use in their own lives.  This new CD, Healing the Wounds of Love is a great example. The music on this CD is a special treat for lovers of Gurbani Kirtan.  Guru Raj Kaur’s rich, energetic voice has been a favorite at Gurudwaras for many years.  On this album, she teams up with her daughter, Nirinjan whose smooth, gentle voice is a beautiful counterpoint to her mother’s. 

About this CD, they write: “Love brings us to life, gives us courage and inspires us to service and sacrifice. To live fully, we need to learn how to heal the wounds of love which we all carry. Shabd Hazaray is the “Shabd Worth 1000 Shabds.” It is the purest and most powerful love song ever written. This amazingly beautiful CD will take you through that process of deep healing.”

 Here is the meditation – I pulled from our Blog Post: Mera Man Loche – Meditation to Heal the Wounds of Love you can see more meditations at www.yogamusic.wordpress.com, our Yoga Music Blog .

Mera Man Lochai Meditation

Healing the Wounds of Love: This meditation is meant to bring positive change to your current relationships while removing past pains that have imbedded themselves in your heart and psyche.  To start with you can do this meditation for 11 days.  As you do it, you will feel clarity and empowerment to make positive change and to begin to experience authentic relationships.  You can continue doing this meditation daily for as long as you feel it serves you.

Mantra: This meditation merges two mantras. It opens with:

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such, nanak hosee bhay such

This mantra is repeated again between each of the first four verses from the daily prayer Shabd
Hazaray
  found in the Sacred Nitnem. After the fourth verse, this mantra is repeated four more times. For this meditation, you repeat this sequence 11 times.

So the entire recitation goes like this:

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such

Mayraa man lochai gur darshan taa-ee
Bilap karay chaatrik kee ni-aa-ee
Trikhaa na utarai Shaant na aavai
Bin Darshan Sant pi-aaray jee-o
Hao Gholee jee-o ghol ghumaa-ee
Gur darshan sant pi-aaray jee-o (1)

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such

Tayraa much suhaavaa jee-o sahaj dhun baanee
Chir ho-aa daykhay saaring paanee
Dhan so days jahaa too(n) vasi-aa
Mayray sajan meet muraaray jee-o
Hao gholee hao ghol ghumaa-ee
Gur sajan meet muraaray jee-o (2)

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such

Ik gharee na milatay taa kalijug hotaa
Hun kad milee-ai pri-a tudh bhagavantaa
Mo-eh rain na vihaavai need na aavai
Bin daykhay gur darbaaray jee-o
Hao gholee jee-o ghol ghumaa-ee
Tis sachay gur darbaaray jee-o (3)

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such

Bhaag ho-aa gur sant milaa-i-aa
Prabh abhinaasee ghar meh paa-i-aa
Sayv karee pal chasaa na vichhuraa
Jan Naanak daas tumaaray jee-o
Hao gholee jee-o ghol ghumaa-ee
Jan Naanak daas tumaaray jee-o (4)

Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such
Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such
Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such
Aad such, jugaad such, haibhay such,
nanak hosee bhay such

About Shabad Hazaray:  This shabd, found in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, was written as letters between Guru Arjan and his father Guru Ram Das.  It is beautiful poetry.
You can read the story abou these letters here: http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Shabad_Hazaray

Here is an attempt at translating the words, although all translations contain some form of personal interpretation since Gurmukhi as a language can contain many depths of meanings.

My mind longs for the vision of the Guru’s Darshan
It cries out like the thirsty song bird for the nectar of your name.
My thirst is not quenched, and I can not find peace
Until I receive the Darshan the beloved saint.

I give myself, and my soul
for your Darshan, my beloved Guru!
Your face is so beautiful, and the sound of your words (shabd) is so filled with inner wisdom.
It has been too long since this rainbird has had even a glimpse of water.
Blessed is the land, where you live, my friend and loved one,
my Divine teacher.

I give myself, and my soul, to my beloved, my Divine Guru
An instant away from you, brings darkness
When will I meet You, my beloved Waheguru?
I can’t endure this night, sleep eludes me too
Until I see your home, my beloved Guru!

I give myself, and my soul to your true home, my beloved Guru!

By good fortune, I met my Saint Guru
and I have found that the immortal creator is within the home my own self
and so I will always serve you and never be separated from you even for an instant.

Guru Nanak says- I’m your slave, my beloved Lord.
I give myself and my soul. Servant Nanak lives to serve you.
