Thau Mai Aaiaa - Sarnee Aaiaa

Vaahiguroo Jee Kaa Khaalsaa Vaahiguroo Jee Kee Fateh

I had to share this with everyone. Sorry to interrupt the Rakhiaa de Shabad series {although that may even be a good thing, but more on that later}

A lot of things have muchhh more effect on me than they do others, and a lot of things have much less effect on me than they do others. This is most likely one of the former. I begged to received a HukamNaama earlier this morning - no question, no reason, I just wanted to receive furmaan from Guroo Jee.

This gift hit me hard

This Shabad is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Raag Soohee on Ang 746

The world is a deep, dark pit;

there's just something about it, I don't know what, I don't know why it got to me as much as it did.. the way it's worded, the original BaaNee, not the translation, it's like I understood it right away, as well, which is sooo hard for me, I never understand anythingg.. it's a poetic flow, and it's so.. so desperate, so sad, so.. so me

i'm really going overboard, eh?

thanks for the comment, Jeeo. and you really don't have to 'comment back' as they put it - I don't expect anything in return for my murakhosity..

vaahguroo jeeeee

Not going overboard at all - or if this is your idea of going overboard then keep on going overboard ;-)

Erm I like commenting here - I was just being silly. I do that sometimes - it's my equivalent of hyper inducing doughnuts ;-)
