How fortunate are those singing along with the GurSikhs at this Peace Prayer Day 2001 jam session!
Excerpts from http://sikhismgurbani.com/
“In another part of Gurbani Guru Ji says, “You will not get this human life again. Make an effort to free yourself from sins – kachoo upau mukat ka kar ray. Sing the praises of the merciful – karnaamai – Lord and get across this world ocean – bhav saagar.”
Maans dayh bahur neh paavai kachoo upau mukat ka kar ray. Nanak kehat gae karnaamai bhav saagar kai paar utar ray. P.220

“Guru Nanak Dev says that by singing the praises of the Lord – gaavi-ai, by listening – suni-ai, by having love for Him in the mind – man rakhi-ai bhaau, dukh can be eliminated and sukh will prevail – dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jae.
Gaavi-ai suni-ai man rakhi-ai bhaau. Dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jae. P.2
