This publication is an edited English commentary with the original Punjābī text of two small texts found within the Srī Gurū Granth Sāhib Jī by the names of ‘Funhe’ and ‘Chaubolay’. These two texts appear within the final portion of the Srī Gurū Granth Sāhib Jī after the text within the various Rāgs. This commentary continues the prayers on from the previous point and I wanted to go back to a text written by the Nirmalā Sampardā. This stīk is so different to the other works by the disciples of the order. This text rather then being more philosophical is more grammatical like the modern-day commentaries produced by the intellectuals in educational positions in Punjāb. Due to this, I thought it would be worth bringing out such a work and provide people with the views of this great saint.

Nov 25, 2018This book is a translation of Sant Sanpuran Singh Nirmala’s steek on these two excerpts which appear towards the end of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. The steek is translated by Kamalpreet Singh Pardeshi who has dedicated his life to making such texts available to the masses. The book begins with a short synopsis of Sant Sanpuran Singh Nirmala’s life. The main part of the book itself contains the original text of Funhe Mahalla Panjva Steek in Punjabi. Each line is presented individually, with the Gurbani first followed by the words in the steek, followed by an English translation. Footnotes are included to highlight further information and variances, where relevant, in differing steeks and copies of Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. In many cases we read Gurbani using literal translations and therefore lose the deeper spiritual meanings behind the messages presented by the Guru. This book goes a long way to remedying this. Funhe Mahalla Panjva contains many important topics which are... More > essential for any Sikh to understand and reflect upon. This includes a narrative on the forms and the formlessness of God and the importance of remembering God in constant meditation. It provides an opportunity to look internally and deal with a wandering consciousness, as well as forgetting pride and self-identity. The steek describes multiple disciplines in the way of sainthood and presents the limitations of external practices often used in one’s journey to realise God. The second part of the book reflects on Chaubolay Mahalla Panjva. This Bani ‘Chaubolay’ has a different focus and a theme primarily focused on love and devotion. Guru Ji reflects on the importance of performing actions in love (rather than in ego) as occurred in the Sakhi of Saman and Musan (Sikhs of the Guru). The Bani discusses the significance in true love liberating individuals from the limitations of the body and physical death. Kamalpreet Singh Pardeshi does a superb job of bringing this Steek to the fore and making it relevant for a modern-day English reader. Unfortunately the spiritual significance of these Baanian may otherwise be easily overlooked by the average reader. This book provides an easily accessible way to opening this deeply significant message for all to benefit from.
