ARTH (Meanings)



Original arths by Sant Giani Sundar Singh Ji Bhindranwale, written down by Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindranwale and translated into english by Kamalpreet Singh Pardeshi.



The Raagmala contains the names of the six male musical measures, the thirty female partners of the musical measures and the names of the forty eight sons. All eighty four of these musical measures came to visit Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji when he was nearing the completion of the Aad Granth [1], when they came to see Guru Arjan Dev Ji they came with great enthusiasm.

When the Aad Granth was completed, it was read and recited in its completion. Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji told the Sikhs that henceforth from that day the completion of the prayers of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji would occur after reading the Raagmala. If one is to do this then their bondage and suffering during the cycle of transmigration would come to an end.

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji wrote the completed Granth of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji starting from Ik Onkar to Atharah Das Bees and bestowed the title of Guru upon the sacred scriptures. The Guru is eternal and will forever guide the future generations.

1. This Granth was later completed by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and bestowed the title of Sri Guru  Granth  Sahib  Ji.



Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji was compiling and creating the Aad Granth and when he was close to completion the ‘Mundaavani’ was being written. At that moment the congregation clasped their hands and made a sweet humbling request to the Guru, “You are close to the completion of the compilation of the holy scriptures. Please create a rosary for us by which we will never need to keep coming or going in the cycle of transmigration.” After hearing this Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji created the prayer called the ‘Raagmala’.

The Sikh prayer is composed of the answers given by Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji to the questions asked by the Sikhs. Also under each answer you will find further quotations from Gurbani to support the answer given by Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji to show that the spiritual content in the Raagmala is the same as that found in the rest of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥

Ik Onkar Satgur Parsad

Ik = one, without duality, Onkar = illuminator of all, when this is recited God becomes the protector and cares, Sat = God who is exempt from death in the three times periods of the past, present and the future, Gur = to rid of ignorance and replace it with knowledge, God is the form of consciousness, Parsad = one who has the form of bliss and who gives a graceful glimpse to the individuals.

There is only one God. God is the form of truth and is realised through the grace of the spiritual master. The Guru is in the shelter of the Lord and has his assistance. God rids one of all their ignorance and replaces the void with knowledge. God is the one who gives a divine glimpse of His form. God is the form of consciousness and bliss.

ਰਾਗ ਮਾਲਾ ॥

Raag Maalaa

Raag = love, Mala = thread

This is a rosary of beads. The thread of the rosary is made from cotton and by reading this prayer the individual uses the rosary. If one is to read this prayer (Raagmala) with complete faith they will be able to place the prayer within their body. If one is to do this then they will break free from the cycle of transmigration. This person will never have to come (take birth) or go (die) again.

Question 01 – O King, how does one make their five sense organs great or pure?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਰਾਗ ਏਕ ਸੰਗਿ ਪੰਚ ਬਰੰਗਨ ॥

Raag Ek Sang Panch Barangan

Raag = love, Ek = one God who is without duality, Sang = with, Panch = five, Barangan = nerves

The sense organs can become great by having love and devotion for the one Lord. The five sense organs are the tongue, eyes, nose, ears and skin.


ਲੋਇਣ ਰਤੇ ਲੋਇਣੀ ਕੰਨੀ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਸਮਾਇ ॥

ਜੀਭ ਰਸਾਇਣਿ ਚੂਨੜੀ ਰਤੀ ਲਾਲ ਲਵਾਇ ॥

If a persons eyes and imbued into the Lord and the ears listen to the praise of the Lord then their consciousness merges with God. The tongue of the individual tastes the nectar of the name of God as it continually recites it.

(Salok  Mahalla  1 – Page  1091 of the Sri Guru Granth  Sahib  Ji)


ਅੰਦਰੁ ਮੁਸਕਿ ਝਕੋਲਿਆ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਕਹੀ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥੨॥

From within the individual who meditates on the Lord with their mind there is a sweet smelling fragrance gained through the name of God. No one can fully understand the virtues of this individual. 2.

(Vaar  Maaroo  Pehila  – Page  1091 of the Sri Guru  Granth  Sahib  Ji)

Question 02 – Who remembers the one Lord?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਸੰਗਿ ਅਲਾਪਹਿ ਆਠਉ ਨੰਦਨ ॥

Sang = congregation, Alaphi = to recite, Aathou = eight quarters

(24 hours), Nandan = son (world)

The true congregation sits in the world and repeats the name of God continuously over the 24 hour period. The world is considered the son of the almighty Lord.


ਸੰਤ ਅਰਾਧਨਿ ਸਦ ਸਦਾ ਸਭਨਾ ਕਾ ਬਖਸਿੰਦੁ ॥

God is the pardoner of all is remembered by the saints continuously.

(Maajh Din Rein Mahalla 5 – Page 137 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)

Question 03 – How does a person initially gain love or fall in love with God?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਪ੍ਰਥਮ ਰਾਗ ਭੈਰਉ ਵੈ ਕਰਹੀ ॥

Pratham Raag Bhairou Vai Karhee

Pratham = first, initially, Raag = love, Bhairou = by creating fear, Vai = him, Karhee = to do

Initially what the individual needs to do is create a feeling of fear from within themselves for the Lord. If one creates this fear then they will gain love for God, eventually falling in love with God.


ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਮਨਿ ਭਉ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਉ ॥੨॥

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji states that those people who have created a sense of fear within themselves have later gained a state of love within them. 2.

(Aasaa  Di Vaar Mahalla  1 – Page  465 of the Sri Guru  Granth  Sahib  Ji)


Question 04 – How should a person recite the name of God?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਪੰਚ ਰਾਗਨੀ ਸੰਗਿ ਉਚਰਹੀ ॥

Panch Raagnee Sang Ucharhee

Panch = great, Raagnee = love, Sang = with, Ucharhee = recite

With great or superior love an individual should recite the name of God.


ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਰਿਦੈ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨਾਮ ॥

Due to the love of God within the individual the name of the Lord resides within their heart.

(Aasaa Mahalla 5 – Page 391 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)

Question  05  –  How  does  the  individual  gain  a  blissful state?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਪ੍ਰਥਮ ਭੈਰਵੀ ਬਿਲਾਵਲੀ ॥

Pratham Bhairvee Bilavalee

Pratham = beginning, birth, Bhairvee = create fear, Bilavalee = bliss

In the beginning, from the moment a person is born, as long as 

they create a sense of fear of God and remain in it then they can gain a blissful state.


ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਕਟੇ ਗਿਆਨ ਅੰਜਨੁ ਸਾਰਿਆ ॥

Through the grace of the spiritual master all of the sins are eradicated and then the bliss of knowledge is placed in the individuals eyes.

(Raamkali Mahalla 3 Anand Sahib – Page 917 of the

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


ਅਨੰਦੁ ਭਇਆ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਏ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਮੈ ਪਾਇਆ ॥

O my brother, I gained a state of bliss on the day I received a spiritual discourse and a glimpse of Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji.

(Raamkali Mahalla 3 Anand Sahib – Page 917 of the

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question  06  –  How  does  duality  disappear  or  become eradicated?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਪੁੰਨਿਆਕੀ ਗਾਵਹਿ ਬੰਗਲੀ ॥

Puniyakee Gavhe Banglee

Puniyakee = the intellect of virtuous people, Gavhe = to sing, Banglee = duality disappears

Those people who have the intellect of the virtuous sing the praises of God. Due to singing the praises of God their duality disappears.


ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਬਿਨਸੈ ਦੂਜਾ ॥

Through the meditation of the name of God the cause of duality is eradicated.

(Gauree Mahalla 5 Sukhmani Sahib – Page 262 of the

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question 07 – How can the individual’s meditation become a continuous flow of the Lord’s name?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਪੁਨਿ ਅਸਲੇਖੀ ਕੀ ਭਈ ਬਾਰੀ ॥

Pun Aslekhee Kee Bhaee Baree

Pun  = pure, Aslekhee = As = pure form, Lekhee = written, Kee=

belonging to, Bhaee = become, Baree = stream

Those people who have taken the pure form of the spiritual master and written it into their heart, their concentration becomes like a small stream and merges with the flow of the name of God. Once it merges with the name of God which it belongs to, the concentration becomes pure.


ਲੇਖਾ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਮਨ ਕੈ ਭਾਇ ॥

Due to the love the individual has for the pure form of the Lord within their mind they are able to give a written account when they go into the next world.

(Saarang Mahalla 1 – Page 1237 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question 08 – How does one bring their mind become under subjection?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਏ ਭੈਰਉ ਕੀ ਪਾਚਉ ਨਾਰੀ ॥

Eh Bhairou Kee Pachou Naree

Eh  = in this way, Bhairou = remain  in  fear, Kee = the, Pachou =

five, Naree = attention (metaphorically it means females)

In this way the Sikhs that remain living with the fear of God bring the five types of attention who are the forms of a female counterpart under subjection.


The five types of attention or  thought by the practical mind are the following:

a)  Parmaan  –  to  focus  your  concentration  on  a  material object this, can be seen by the individual.

b)  Viparjay – to think differently to the spiritual master’s teachings.

c)  Nindra – when the mind focuses on sleep.

d)  Simritee  –  when  a  person  remembers  or  consciously recalls previous actions.

e)  Vikalap  –  where  one  thinks  of  something  else  whilst supposedly concentrating on another. This is where the individual does little but expects to be richly rewarded.[2]


[2] It is important  to note  that  another  type  of attention  is Sankalp  which  is the opposite of Vikalap.

These are the five different types of ‘vritti’ which is the mental  modification.

ਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਭਉ ਪਇਆ ਵਡਭਾਗਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਮਨਿ ਆਇ ॥

ਭੈ ਪਇਐ ਮਨੁ ਵਸਿ ਹੋਆ ਹਉਮੈ ਸਬਦਿ ਜਲਾਇ ॥

Through the grace of the Lord the fear is embedded in the heart of the

devotee. Due to this the Lord has found a place within the individuals mind. Due to the sense of fear the mind has come under the subjection of the individual. The holy words from the spiritual master have also decimated the sense of ego.

(Sorath  Kee Vaar Mahalla  3 – Page 645 of the Sri Guru  Granth  Sahib  Ji)

Question 09 – How does one adopt the five elements? When does the individual become similar to the five elements?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:


ਪੰਚਮ ਹਰਖ ਦਿਸਾਖ ਸੁਨਾਵਹਿ ॥

Pancham Harakh Disaakh Sunaavhi

Pancham = Panch = five elements, Am = me, my, Harakhdi = delightful, pleasing, Saakh = eulogy, story, Sunaavhi = tell, explain, talk


To talk about the individuals that have merged or become one with the elements fills me with delight. It is difficult to eulogise the nature of these individuals as they become humble like water, merciful like the earth, radiant like fire, without layers like the wind and undisturbed by thought like the ether. It brings me so much pleasure to talk about these individuals that it gives me a feeling of bliss.


ਸਹਨ ਸੀਲ ਪਵਨ ਅਰੁ ਪਾਣੀ ਬਸੁਧਾ ਖਿਮਾ ਨਿਭਰਾਤੇ ॥  

The element of wind is like tolerance, the element of water is soothing, the element of fire eradicates fear, the element of ether is similar to being alone and the element of earth is like mercy. In the elements there is no virtue of evil.

(Maaroo  Mahalla  5 – Page  999 of the Sri Guru Granth  Sahib  Ji)

ਗੋਪਾਲ ਗੁਣ ਨਿਤ ਗਾਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਿਰਪਾਲ ॥੮॥੩॥

A hymn is the musical measure of Maroo written by the 5th  Nanak, Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji. In the way in which a person has cut the wood of a sandalwood tree with a saw, the tree will show no hostility or anger. The wood does not have any enmity for the woodsman who chopped the tree. O mind you should recite the name of the Lord. The Lord is the form of mercy and the eulogy of the Lord can be heard through the grace of the saints.1. If someone wants to cross the ocean they sit in a boat to cross. Once they are seated in the boat their fatigue goes away. By sitting in the boat one does not forget about the pain of the worldly ocean but they cross the ocean instantly.2. If a person is to puts sandalwood in layers so that the camphor can be placed over them to cover the earth as the individual has no love for the ground. If a person urinates and excretes on the ground or digs it up the earth does not take any offence.3. The sky is like a large canopy covering both the sinners and the faithful. He does not discriminate on who is a friend and who is an enemy. The sky covers regardless of their nature.4. The sun rises and with its illuminations dispels the darkness. The rays of the sun are shone everywhere irrelevant of if the place is pure or impure. The purity or impurity does not affect eh sun or cause it any distress.5. The soothing wind spreads a fragrance from place to place with no distinction to the location. Wherever the location may be the wind will touch it.6. In the way in which any person is to approach a fire irrelevant of if they are a sinner or a saint, the fire will get rid of their cold. The fire eradicates cold, gets rid of fear and provides illumination all 

without judging it provides for all.7. The saints who are immersed with the name of God by gaining shelter at their feet does a person gain liberation. Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji states that a person should be like the elements of the Lord. If you follow the examples of the elements then one will be graced with the mercy of the Lord.8.3.

(Maaroo Mahalla 5 – Page 1017 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)

Question 10 – How does one sing and praises of God and at the same time take the praises of the husband of Maya into their heart?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:


ਬੰਗਾਲਮ ਮਧੁ ਮਾਧਵ ਗਾਵਹਿ ॥੧॥

Bangaalam Madhu Maadhav Gaavhi

Bangaalam = Ban = duality, Gaal = decompose, Am = in, Madhu =

heart, Maadhav = husband of Maya, Gaavhi = to sing

The individual orientated around the spiritual master destroys all of his duality. The individual then places God who is the husband of Maya into his heart. The individual then begins to sing the praises of God within his heart.


ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਮਾਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਮੰਨਿ ਵਸਾਈ ॥

The holy word has destroyed the duality and taken if from within me. The space has now been filled within the mind with the presence of God. (Dhanaasree Mahalla 3 – Page 663 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question 11 – God is the giver of all rewards, how should we understand the divine entity?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਲਲਤ ਬਿਲਾਵਲ ਗਾਵਹੀ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਭਾਂਤਿ ॥

Lalat Bilaaval Gaavee Apunee Apunee Bhaant

Lalat = beautiful, Bilaaval = bliss, Gaavee = to sing, Apunee

Apunee = each and every different view, Bhaant = method, way

The people of the world all sing the praises of the beautiful Lord with complete bliss. The people who live according to the actions of karma (cause and effect) sing his praises according to their own method. The saints sing the praises of God according to their method and the knowledgeable ones sing the praises of God through their method. The 

many people sing the praises of God and they do this with views that are different from each other.


ਇਛਾ ਪੂਰਕੁ ਸਰਬ ਸੁਖਦਾਤਾ ਹਰਿ ਜਾ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਹੈ ਕਾਮਧੇਨਾ ॥

God is the fulfiller of all the desires and wishes a person desires. God is the giver of peace.

(Dhanaasree Mahalla 4 – Page 669 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question 12 – Who can be considered to be deserving or entitled?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:


ਅਸਟ ਪੁਤ੍ਰ ਭੈਰਵ ਕੇ ਗਾਵਹਿ ਗਾਇਨ ਪਾਤ੍ਰ ॥੧॥

Ast Putar Bhairav Ke Gaavhi Gaayin Paatar

Ast = eight, Putar = subject, Bhairav = by creating fear, Ke = they, Gaavhi = to sing, Gaayin = praise, Paatar = deserving

The saints who have the eight; the five sins and the three characteristics, under their subjection and control will be able to create a fear for the Lord. After doing this they will be able to sing the praises of the Lord. This person will then be considered as entitled or deserving.


The five sins are lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. The three characteristics are evil, goodness and worldliness.

ਪਾਂਚਉ ਲਰਿਕਾ ਜਾਰਿ ਕੈ ਰਹੈ ਰਾਮ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਗਿ ॥੪੨॥

By bringing the five sons under subjection I have been able to place my concentration solely into the name of God.

(Salok Kabir Ji – Page 1366 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


ਤ੍ਰਿਤੀਆ ਤੀਨੇ ਸਮ ਕਰਿ ਲਿਆਵੈ ॥

One should bring the three characteristics under control to keep them at the same ratio.

(Gauree  Tithee  Kabir  Ji – Page  343 of the Sri Guru  Granth  Sahib  Ji)


Question 13 – How does the individual eradicate scepticism?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਦੁਤੀਆ ਮਾਲਕਉਸਕ ਆਲਾਪਹਿ ॥

Dutiaa Maalkousak Aalaaphi

Dutiaa =  duality, Maalkousak = Maal  = destroy, Kousak  = Kou =

there is, Sak = scepticism, Aalaaphi = to say, to speak of 

Those people who have eradicated duality do not ever speak of any type of scepticism. Once the duality has gone then no scepticism left.


ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਮੇਟਿ ਖਿਮਾ ਗਹਿ ਰਹਹੁ ॥

By listening to the spiritual discourse of the spiritual master the duality of an individual is eradicated while the virtue of piety is adopted.

(Gauree Thithee Kabir Ji – Page 343 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question 14 – How does a person control their organs of action?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਸੰਗਿ ਰਾਗਨੀ ਪਾਚਉ ਥਾਪਹਿ ॥

Raagni Pachou Thaaphi

Sang = with, Raagni = love, Pachou = five organs of action, Thaaphi = control

The individual who is orientated toward the spiritual master is able to control the five organs of actions (hands, feet, mouth, anus and genital organ) through love.


ਪਾਂਚਉ ਇੰਦ੍ਰੀ ਨਿਗ੍ਰਹ ਕਰਈ ॥

ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੋਊ ਨਿਰਵਰਈ ॥੨੭॥

One should prevent the five organs of action from committing sin. If one does  this  then  they  will  gain  knowledge.  Once  one  has gained  the knowledge then both sin and good are of no concern to the individual.27.

(Gauree Baavan Akhree Bhagat Kabir Ji – Page 341 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


Question  15  –  How  does  the  individual  gain  the  sweet fragrance of meditation?

Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji replied:

ਗੋਂਡਕਰੀ ਅਰੁ ਦੇਵਗੰਧਾਰੀ ॥

Gondkaree Aur Devgandharee

Gondkaree = Gond = deliberate, Karee = do, Aur = those, Devgandharee = Dev = illuminate, Gandharee = fragrance

Those people who deliberate on the Lord become an illuminated form from within thus becoming one with God. By meditating on God one also gains this sweet fragrance which comes from within the body.


ਸਹਜੇ ਹੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਊਪਜੈ ਸਹਜਿ ਪਿਆਰਿ ਬੈਰਾਗਿ ॥

From knowledge a person attains a state of meditation. From the state of peace a person gains love and dispassion.

(Siree Raag Astpadia Mahalla 3 – Page 68 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)


ਨਾਮੈ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਵਜੀ ਹੈ ਦਹ ਦਿਸਿ ਹਰਿ ਮੁਸਕੀ ਮੁਸਕ ਗੰਧਾਰੇ ॥੧॥

The name of God is being propagated all over the world through great love and at the same time the sweet fragrance of the Lord is being disseminated through the world.

(Natt Mahalla 4 – Page 981 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)
