Ask the Bhai Sahiba Column
Excerpted from From “Psyche of the Soul: The Nit Naym Banis, with Additional Shabads and Prayers, and Their Effects,” by Siri Singh Sahib Shai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji and Bhai Sahiba Sardarni Sahiba Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa; translations, editing, and layout by Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa, published by Hand Made Books, 1993.
We have 5,000 years of human experiments and human experience at the universal level, which includes all thoughts, all forms, all religions, all practices, and all projections. It comes down to the basic fact that the human is created out of the ray of light of the creative, infinite God, and the very human existence is for happiness. This is a standard biological, psychological, sociological, fundamental truth.
In this university we call the universe, different men of God and women of Grace have experimented and left their experience. What it boils down to is simple: Man has a vast, infinite computer to take care of all his challenges with his vitality and values and his projection for virtue, success, fulfillment, achievement, desires, and ambitions which come from the pursuit of one’s own thought.
It is all in one word, “Happiness.” Since human neurons in their seven plates and fourteen sides are designed to create a blueprint of human activity, then a person can experience human ecstasy and happiness. This makes the human self-experience to be beautiful, bountiful and blissful Guru Nanak summed up all of this knowledge in a simple science.
It is called Bani or Word. Word runs the whole world. It runs each human and the entire human race on the planet earth…Guru Nanak gave the permutation and combination through the Word in a form called Gurbani. This science is called Jap, (or Japa as it is called in the Western world).
