Gurbani Shabad Kirtan

Shabad (Sanskrit sabda. of obscure etymology) is generally rendered as sound, voice or tone. Another series of meanings includes word, utterance, speech. In distinctive Sikh usage shabads means a hymn or sacred work from the Guru Granth Sahib. In the theological sense, it stands for then `Word` revealed by the Guru. In the Guru Granth Sahib it is spelt as sabad with its inflectional variations sabadu, sabadi and sabade. Its equivalent substitutes used in the Sikh Scripture are dhun or duni (Sanskrit dhavni), nad, anahad nada), bachan, bani, kavao. Shabad is often linked with guru to form gurshabad or guru ka shabad (Guru's word) Inasmuch as shabad is connected with both sound and voice.

The Guru's voice ~ the utterences ~ as preserved in the Guru Granth Sahib is Gurshabad or Gurbani. It is noteworthy that the term shabad, which occurs independently in the Guru Granth Sahib 1271 times, is also linked 572 times with the term guru. It is nowhere used in the sense of ordinary human word or speech : in reference to common human speech other terms such as bolna, boli, akhan, kahan-kahavan and kathan are used.

One of the features of Sikh doctrine of shabad is the emphasis placed on nam, i.e. repitation of the Name (nam) of God; this name is shabad. The recitation (path) of the Guru Granth Sahib and of the texts from it is an essential part of Sikh practice. One of the nine forms of bhakti is listening (sravana) to shabad, nam, bani, i.e. words denoting God and His Greatness. Words or sounds are the means of celebrating and singing the glories of God and this act is called Shabad Kirtan.

So, celebrating and singing the glories of God along with listening (sravana) to shabads, here we are pleased to present treat to your ears ~ shabads sung by S.Surinder Singh Matharoo (Kuwait Wale).
