Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

karam khand kee banee jor. tithai hor na ko-ee hor.

In the realm of karma, sound is power.
there, there is nothing, nothing else.

tithai joDh mahaabal soor. tin meh raam rahi-aa bharpoor.

There, there are warriors of great power and courage
whose being is suffused with Ram.

tithai seeto seetaa mahimaa maahi. taa kay roop na kathnay jaahi.

Myriads of Sitas are there, cool and calm in their majestic glory,
Whose beauty is beyond description.

naa ohi mareh na thaagay jaahi. jin kai raam vasai man maahi.

Neither do they die nor can they be deceived,
within whose minds the Lord Ram resides.

tithai bhagat vaseh kay lo-a. karahi anand sachaa man so-ay.

There dwell devotees of many worlds.
They are in bliss; the True Lord dwells in their minds.

sach khand vasai nirankaar. kar kar vaykhai nadar nihaal.

In the realm of Truth, the Formless Lord abides.
Having created, He watches over the Creation
bestowing Grace and happiness.

tithai khand mandal varbhand. jay ko kathai ta ant na ant.

There, there are universes, realms and regions
and to speak of them?  No end, no end.

tithai lo-a lo-a aakaar. jiv jiv hukam tivai tiv kaar.

There are worlds upon worlds of His Creation.
As He commands, so they exist.

vaykhai vigsai kar veechaar. naanak kathnaa karrhaa saar.  

He watches, contemplates and rejoices upon His Creation
O Nanak, description is extremely difficult!
