Bliss of Waheguru's Simran

I came across these videos of Sangat doing such awe-inspiring Simran! Enjoy!


Kaurs United Camp - Simran


ਸਭੇ ਵਸਤੂ ਕਉੜੀਆ ਸਚੇ ਨਾਉ ਮਿਠਾ ॥
Sabẖe vasṯū ka▫uṛī▫ā sacẖe nā▫o miṯẖā.
All material things are bitter; the True Name alone is sweet.

ਸਾਦੁ ਆਇਆ ਤਿਨ ਹਰਿ ਜਨਾਂ ਚਖਿ ਸਾਧੀ ਡਿਠਾ ॥
Sāḏ āeiā ṯin har janāʼn cẖakẖ sāḏẖī diṯẖā.
Those humble servants of Waheguru who taste it, come to enjoy its flavour.
(Ang 321)

In regards to the question about what 'Kaur' means, according to Bhai Kahn Singh (Nabha) who wrote the first Sikh Encyclopaedia (the Mahaan Kosh) 'Kaur' derives from the word 'Kanwar' which means 'Prince'.


Although to keep things simple we say "Kaur" means "Princess", but from an etymological perspective it actually means "Prince".

What does this imply?

Well, from my "personal" understanding Guru jee picked to call Sikh women "Kaur" ("Prince") to remind them that they will not be the typical timid, weak hearted and passive princesses (commonly portrayed through most cultures) but in fact they will have the courage, glory, grace, bravery and sovereignty of a Prince.

Also it denotes that Guru jee see's his daughters as EQUALS to his sons, just as many mothers who love their children equally also call their daughters "Putt" (actually meaning "Son").


Bhul Chuk Maaf.
