The pinnacle of Happiness is BLISS! There are three primary purposes of a religious prayer. 1. To refresh your remembrance and awareness of God. 2. To bring your wandering mind into the present moment. 3. To understand the meaning of the prayer and imbibe its teachings into your life in order to further your spiritual progress. The Anand Sahib is a collection of hymns in Sikhism, written in the Ramkali Raag by Guru Amar Das, the third Guru of the Sikhs. It appears on the pages 917 to 922 in Guru Granth Sahib. It is said that the person who recites this Holy Bani daily with dedication, attention and comprehension, will achieve Anand (Bliss) in life. In the beautiful composition is stated that, the mind and soul of a true Sikh remains steadfast and God oriented in all circumstances of life. In an awakened mind with Guru Consciousness and intoxicated with the Nectar of Naam, one is always tuned with the Sweet Will of the Lord in all ups and downs of life, in pain and pleasure alike. Such a mind is ever luminous with Guru Consciousness and is in perpetual intoxication of Naam and Amrit Bani, accepting without question the Hukam (Will) of the Almighty. All Dukh (Pain) and Sukh, (Pleasure) appear as the same to the devoted Sikh of the Guru. By God's grace, presented to you here is the translation of the ANAND SAHIB into English. ANAND means Bliss, and Bliss is the pinnacle of Happiness. Following the Translation, offered to you is the Transliteration of ANAND SAHIB, for those who may wish to recite as a prayer in the original Gurumukhi language. While the best experience would be derived from reading the prayers in Gurumukhi, there should be no hindrance for anyone who does not know the Gurumukhi script, to do Anand Sahib. While every effort has been made to simplify the transliteration, I encourage the reader to read the prayers while listening to them in audio format a couple of times. This will help them grasp the correct pronunciation. Provided also, at the end of the book, is a link on YouTube to ANAND SAHIB so the reader can hear the prayer in Gurmukhi. This way, one can learn the correct pronunciation, or just listen to the prayer whenever needed. This prayer book is perfect to carry around in one’s device, so the prayers can be performed from anywhere. May You be Happy, May Everybody be Happy. God Bless All.
