Prayer for Sunday (Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev)

Today is the Sikh commemoration of the Martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev, 5th Sikh Guru. It is also Father’s Day in the US.

There is one awareness among all created beings.
None have been created without this awareness.
~ Sri Guru Granth Sahib

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
Where is That Door of Yours, and where is That Home, in which You sit and take care of all?
The Sound-current of the Naad vibrates there for You,
and countless musicians play all sorts of instruments there for You.
There are so many Ragas and musical harmonies to You;
so many minstrels sing hymns of You.
Wind, water and fire sing of You. The Righteous Judge of Dharma sings at Your Door.
Chitr and Gupt, the angels of the conscious and the subconscious
who keep the record of actions,
and the Righteous Judge of Dharma who reads this record, sing of You.
Shiva, Brahma and the Goddess of Beauty, ever adorned by You, sing of You.
Indra, seated on His Throne, sings of You, with the deities at Your Door.
The Siddhas in Samaadhi sing of You; the Saadhus sing of You in contemplation.
The celibates, the fanatics, and the peacefully accepting sing of You;
the fearless warriors sing of You.
The Pandits, the religious scholars who recite the Vedas,
with the supreme sages of all the ages, sing of You.
The Mohinis, the enchanting heavenly beauties who entice hearts in paradise,
in this world, and in the underworld of the subconscious, sing of You.
The celestial jewels created by You,
and the sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage, sing of You.
The brave and mighty warriors sing of You.
The spiritual heroes and the four sources of creation sing of You.
The worlds, solar systems and galaxies, created and arranged by Your Hand, sing of You.
They alone sing of You, who are pleasing to Your Will.
Your devotees are imbued with Your Sublime Essence.
So many others sing of You, they do not come to mind.
O Nanak, how can I think of them all?
That True Lord is True, forever True, and True is His Name.
He is, and shall always be. He shall not depart,
even when this Universe which He has created departs.
He created the world, with its various colors,
species of beings, and the variety of Maya.
Having created the creation, He watches over it Himself, by His Greatness.
He does whatever He pleases. No one can issue any order to Him.
He is the King, the King of kings, the Supreme Lord and Master of kings.
Nanak remains subject to His Will.

(first portion of the Rehraas Sahib)
