Ek Omkar - Rang De Basanti
This Sikh hymn sung in praise of the Divine evokes a lot of vibrations in me .... the kind of goosebumps I get ...its electrifying!!!enjoy n also understand the inner meaning...its beautiful!
Ek onkar satnam kartapurakh
nirmoh nirvair akaal murat
guru parsad jap
aad sach jugaad sach
hai bhi sach nanak hose bhi sach
soche soch na ho wai
je sochi lakh waar
chhupe chhup na howai
je laai raha lakhtaar
bukhiya bukh na utari
je banna puriya paar
sahasyanpa lakh woh hai
ta ek na chale naal
ke ve sach yaara hoi ae
ke ve kude tutte paal
hukum rajai chalna nanak likheya naal
There is but One all embracing and all powerful Divinity, Who manifests Himself first in the shape of the sacred word, and then through the whole created Universe
He is the One-in-all and the All-in-one. He is the Eternal Reality, and His name Satnam is also Eternal. He is the Creator, and has the power of independent self - creation. He permeates the whole creation. He is the only male element in the Universe and all else is male. He is above all fear, and is free from all thoughts of enmity. He is immortal, free from birth and rebirth, and can be realised in every created thing.
He is self - existent. The whole universe is dependent for its existence on Him but He is self - existent; the Generator of all, without any one to generate Him.
He can be realised through the grace of the Guru-The Teacher who is God conscious, and sees Him both within and without.
Note: All the ten Gurus blessed men and women with the gift of the Divine name. Those, who realised the Divine within, were called Gurmukhs and were given the right of showing the path of realization to seekers alter Truth through meditation on the Divine name.
