"How Guru Gobind Singh Ji came to this world....
Guru Gobind Singh Ji described in his own words how he came to this world....
APANEE KATHHAA BAKHAANO || THAP SAADHHATH JIH BIDHH MUHI AANO ||
Now I relate my own story of how God sent me in the world while I was absorbed in meditation.
HAEM KU(N)TT PARABATH HAI JEHAA(N) || SAPATH SRI(N)G SOBHITH HAI THEHAA(N) || 1 ||
On the site of Hemkunt mountain, where the seven peaks shine in glory.
SAPATH SRI(N)G THIH NAAM KEHAAVAA || PA(N)DD RAAJ JEH JOG KAMAAVAA ||
That spot is known as Sapat Saring. It is where Pandav Kings practiced yoga.
THEH HAM ADHHIK THAPAASIAA SAADHHEE || MEHAA KAAL KAALAKAA ARAADHHEE || 2 ||
There with great spiritual effort, I prayed to God - the Lord of Death.
EIH BIDHH KARATH THAPASIAA BHAYO || DHV ROOP THAE EIK ROOP HVAI GAYO ||
Thus I continued my meditations and merged with the Divine Being.
THAATH MAATH MUR ALAKH ARAADHHAA || BAHU BIDHH JOG SAADHHANAA SAADHHAA || 3 ||
My father and mother also worshipped the Indescribable One. And carried out several spiritual practices.
THIN JO KAREE ALAKH KEE SAEVAA || THAA THAE BHEAE PRASA(N)N GURADHAEVAA ||
They served God with great devotion and the Supreme Guru was very pleased with them.
THIN PRABH JAB AAEIS MUHI DHEEYAA || THAB HAM JANAM KALOO MEHI LEEYAA || 4 ||
At the command of God, I was born into this dark age of Kalyug.
CHITH NAA BHAYO HAMARO AAVAN KEH || CHUBHEE REHEE SRUTH PRABH CHARANAN MEHI ||
My mind was not happy in coming to this world because it was attached to the feet of the Lord.
JIO THIO PRABH HAM KO SAMAJHAAYO || EIM KEHIKAI EIH LOK PAT(H)AAYO || 5 ||
Somehow, God explained to me His purpose. And sent me to this world with His directive.
