Salok Mahalla Novan contains an eternal wealth of the divine hymns of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib, the Ninth Sikh Guru. This is a beautiful garland of fifty eight compositions uttered by the Great Guru, after observing silence for twenty six years. These sacred hymns have been incorporated in the end of the holy book, Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
One who grieves not in misery, delights not in pleasure, is always in equipoise. He liberates not only himself, from worldly attachments, but also helps many others to transcend delusions. The verses in Salok Mahalla Novan depict great wisdom, yoga, and karma that embodied the life of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib. Each verse of this collection is a source of tremendous illumination.
Devoid of the Light of Wisdom, life is engulfed by the darkness of avarices like greed, fear, and pride; the impermanent, illusionary and transitory nature of the world seems to be permanent, which it is not; suffering, pain, misery and anguish are the manifestation of one's own mind, and renunciation too is the subtle creation of our mind.
One should endeavour to free mind of all attachments and uplift the level of consciousness. So, how to surpass the limitations of the mind? How to evolve the consciousness? How to end the ordeal created by mind? To get a clear understanding, delve deep into the wonderful compilation of the enlightening hymns, elucidated by revered Anandmurti Gurumaa. Salok Mahalla Novan offers a profound insight into the essence of the bani of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib.
Dive into the divine ocean of wisdom and discover the blissful self!
