Pelha Prakash of Adi Granth in Harimandar Sahib

12:27 PM

Vadhiyana to all for the Pelha Prakash of Adi Granth Sahib in the Harimandar Sahib.

After Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji installed the Adi Granth in Harimandar Sahib the Guru gave updesh [teaching] to the Sangat [congregation] about the Granth.

Kavi Santhok Singh Ji writes in his Gurpratap Suraj Prakash Granth that Guru Arjan Dev Ji said:

-----------------

ਗ੍ਰਿੰਥ ਜਹਾਜ ਸੁ ਭੌਜਲ ਕੋ ਤਰ ਜਾਤਿ ਸੁਖੇਨ ਜਿਨੀ ਚਿਤ ਲਾਯੋ ।੪।
The Granth is a vehicle [which gives liberation] whosoever implants [the teachings] in their mind they are easily taken across [the terrible ocean].

ਸ੍ਰੀ ਸੁਰ ਕੇਰ ਸਰੀਰ ਜੁਊ ਸਭਿ ਥਾਨ ਸਮੈ ਸਭਿ ਨਾ ਦਰਸੈ ਹੈਂ ।
The body of the Guru is sometimes not available for Darshan, as time and space permit.

ਗ੍ਰਿੰਥ ਰਿਦਾ ਗੁਰ ਕੋ ਇਹ ਜਾਨਹੁ ਉੱਤਮ ਹੈ ਸਭਿ ਕਾਲ ਰਹੈ ਹੈ ।
However, recognize the Granth as the heart of the Guru, it is highest because it will be viewable in all times and places.

ਮੇਰੇ ਸਰੂਪ ਤੇ ਯਾਂਤੇ ਹੈ ਦੀਰਘ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜਾਨਿ ਅਦਾਇਬ ਕੈ ਹੈ ।
For this reason recognize the Granth Sahib as the Greater Master, and respect it as such.

ਪੂਜਹੁ ਚੰਦਨ ਕੇਸਰ ਕੋ ਘਸਿ ਧੂਪ ਧੁਖਾਇ ਕੈ ਫੂਲ ਚਢੈ ਹੈ ॥੫॥
Worship the Granth with ground sandalwood and saffron, by lighting incense, and putting flowers [on the Granth].

- Gurpratap Suraj Prakash Granth, Raas 3, Adaaie [Chapter] 50
