Hey Gobind Hey Gopal lyrics in Gurmukhi:
„Hey Gobind Hey Gopal, Hey Dya Needhan,
Paran Naath Anath Sake, Deen Darad Niihal,
Hey Samarath Agamye Puran, Moh Maya Dhar,
Aand Kup Maha Bhayan, Nanak Par Uttar.”
Hey Gobind Hey Gopal – Translation in English:
„O Lord of the Universe, O Lord of the World, O Dear Merciful Beloved. You are the Master of the breath of life, the Companion of the lost and forsaken, the Destroyer of the pains of the poor. O All-powerful, Inaccessible, Perfect Lord, please shower me with Your Mercy. Please, carry Nanak across the terrible, deep dark pit of the world to the other side.”
This is an amazing bhajan, chanted by Dilpreet Bhatia in devotion to Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu. Krishna is the most trustworthy source of wisdom and knowledge. The whole guru-parampara – the disciplic succession – starts with Him because He is the original preceptor.
This chant is composed by Guru Arjun Dev ji, and it is found in the Guru Granth Sahib, page 1273.
Guru Arjan (5 April 1563 – 30 May 1606) was the first martyr of the Sikh faith and the 5th of the 10 Sikh Gurus, who compiled sacred writings to create the 11th, the living Guru, Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Arjan was born in Goindval Punjab India, the youngest son of Guru Ram Das (the fourth of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism) and Bibi Bhani, the daughter of Guru Amar Das.
The greatest contribution Guru Arjan made to the Sikh faith was to compile all of the past Gurus’ holy writings, along with selected writings of other saints from various backgrounds which he considered consistent with the teachings of Sikhism into one book, now the sacred Sikh scripture: the Guru Granth Sahib. It is, perhaps, the only scripture that still exists in the form first published (a hand-written manuscript) by the Guru.
More than half of the Guru Granth Sahib is constituted of his own holy renderings. The Granth Sahib is not only a compilation of the revelations but also it throws considerable light on the contemporary social and political life; spiritual awareness and the physical being are fused into one.
Among his other, equally important realizations are the creation of new cities at Tarn Taran, the construction of the Baoli at Lahore and Kartarpur with its magnanimous Tank of Salvation.
„Those blessed with the karma of good actions praise the Lord. O Nanak, they make the Guru their spiritual teacher. In the 4th watch of the early morning hours, a longing arises in their higher consciousness. They are attuned to the river of life; the True Name is in their minds and on their lips.” – Guru Arjan’s quote.
