Object Of Kirtan
Kirtan is not performed to make Gurbani pleasing and palatable. The Gurus were very clear about its objective. They warned the listeners not to confuse it with other types of music or deem it as a mode of entertainment. The Guru has pronounced that Kirtan is the magical formula to keep the human soul afloat in the dark era of Kaljug provided the devotee sings the pure melodies with his or her heart closely focused on the meaning and true spirit of the Gurbani.< The filth of our bad actions is removed by listening and practising the teachings of the Guru. Sacred Music has an equally important place in our life, as it helps to preserve our heritage and reminds of our moral duties as Sikhs to live up to the high standards set by our forefathers.
Guru Nanak regarded hymn-singing and hymn-listening with devotion as a link between man and God.The best way to worship God is to blend the Divine Word with sacred music.The singing produces a response or echo within the soul.Guru Nanak felt that Gurbani and Kirtan are superior to all spiritual practices and as such they lead to the door of salvation."
Guru Arjan Dev compiled the Aad Granth as the comprehensive technology of Naad,a universal collection of hymns from many spiritual traditions.He organised the hymns according to Raga and often included instructions about style and specific tunes to be applied to the hymns.
GURUDWARA SHRI BANGLA SAHIB is situated in the Delhi City. Built in the sacred visit of SHRI GURU HARKARISHAN JI to delhi. At the request of Mughal King Aurangzeb and through the persuation of Mirza Raja Jai Singh of Amber, GURU JI agreed to come to delhi. Raja Jai Singh invited GURU JI to the present site which originally belonged to Raja Jai Singh. Rajas wife thought of testing the spiritual powers of the GURU and disguised herself as maid servant and sat among the attendants. GURU SAHIB at the age of 8 years identified the RANI and sat in her lap. Thus convincing her of the the spiritual powers of GURU NANAK and his True Desciples. In those days small pox was raging in the city of Delhi on an epidemic form. The citizens of delhi suffred grief and death As a result of clamity that had befallen there. GURU JI out of love and compassion for suffering humanity dipped his holy feet in water and poured charan amrit into small chaubacha (tank). All those who took water from caubacha were cured from the disease. Thus the people of delhi were saved from that epidemic. Devotees with faith and devotion come from far and near and get rid of suffering by taking a dip in the holy water.
