"Take the first step towards God, and The Lord shall take a million steps towards you." Prayer is the first step one can take on the path to 'God Realization', which is the true purpose of human life. Pain and Pleasure are the two sides of the same coin that act as the primary driving force of all human actions. Everybody wants to avoid suffering and yearns for peace and happiness. While all prayers are good and bring about peace and happiness, Sikhism offers two special prayers that address peace and suffering. The first one is Sukhmani Sahib which brings about peace and contentment, and the second one is Dukh Bhanjani Sahib which focuses on removing pain and suffering. Only The Lord's Name can bring about peace, and can shield one from suffering. The verses in each prayer guide the mortal to attempt to understand and live life in tune with the Will of The Immortal, thereby removing all hardship and suffering. The word 'Dukh' means a hardship or ailment, or suffering, causing a pain. The word 'Bhanjani' means destroyer or crusher; hence the phrase "Dukh Bhanjani" means "Destroyer of Pain". All the shabads in this composition are composed by Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Dukh Bhanjani is a composition of sacred hymns put together in three Raags(musical measures) - Raga Gauri,Raga Bilaval and Raga Sorath. This prayer is done in order to alleviate any form of ailments ("Dukh") or hardship experienced. Presented in this book is the Translation and Transliteration in English for those who cannot, or are not well versed in the Gurmukhi script. 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. There is a link to the prayer in YouTube. This will help to get the correct pronunciation, or if you wish to just listen to the prayers. After doing prayers regularly, one can look for translation books to assist in helping understand the Bani. Suitable to gift friends and family too. The gift of 'Dhamma', or 'Gian', is the ultimate gift that brings joy and peace to the giver and the receiver. There should be no hindrance on your part towards making the first step to God. PRAY!
