Ardas Bhaee Amar Das Guru, Amar Das Guru, Ardas Bhaee, Ram Das Guru, Ram Das Guru, Ram Das Guru, Sachee Sahee
The prayer has been given to Guru Amar Das. The prayer is manifested by Guru Ram Das. The miracle is complete.
You are my life. You are my love. Everlasting peace. Healer of all. Bestower of faith. Bestower of all. I am at your feet, Beloved O Lord. Bring me to thy bliss. Bring me to thy love. The nectar of the naam, rests me in your arms. I am that I am and I am all Yours.
• Guru is that which directs one from darkness (gu) to light (ru), from ignorance to the experience of one’s infinite nature. Guru Amar Das is the third of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of grace and hope when there
is no hope. He lived from 1479 to 1574 and is said to embody generosity and equality.
• Guru Ram Das, his son-in-law, is the fourth of the Sikh Gurus and is the energy of miracles, healings, and blessings. He lived from 1534 until 1581 and is said to embody humility, loving service, and compassion. Ram means “servant of the Lord.”
• If you ask something of Guru Ram Das, he has to bring it to God for you. Give your worries to Guru Ram Das and let him take them to God. The God that rotates the Earth can certainly take care of your problems! This is the mantra for answered prayers.
• As Yogi Bhajan says, “Normally there is no power in the human but the power of prayer. And to do prayer, you have to put your mind and body together and then pray from the soul. ‘Ardas Bhaee’ is a mantra prayer. If you sing it, your mind, body, and soul automatically combine, and without
saying what you want, the need of the life is adjusted. That is the beauty of this prayer.”
