Bliss, Anand, Love of the Beloved Satguru is a strange and mysterious phenomenon. It is this Supreme Blissful Anand which flows from the mouth of Sri Guru Amar Das. The Guru Love with His Beloved Satguru that has inspired the Angad Sahib, which bursts out like showers of soothing rain in the overpowering heat of the mid-summer sun. This is indeed an Eternal Blessing in the shape of Holy Anand Sahib, for the whole of mankind for all times to come. This Bani is completely enveloping, engulfing, overwhelming, and gripping in its nature and effect. Pure Guru Consciousness totally takes over. It completely encircles and grips all the faculties and senses of a true lover and opens the flood gates of Pure Love (Param) for Him and His Creation. One remains totally immersed in this Ocean of Bliss. Sri Guru Amar Das Ji (Punjabi: ) (5 April 1479 – 1 September 1574) was the third of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism and became Guru on 26 March 1552 following in the footsteps of Guru Angad Dev, who died 29 March 1552. ...


Having tasted the Nectar of Divine Bliss in meeting the Beloved Satguru and having tasted the Naam Ras by Satguru’s Grace, no worldly happiness, pleasure is comparable to a fraction of this Bliss and no worldly sorrows and affliction can unbalance and shake this bliss because once submerged in this bliss, one completely transcended all pleasant and unpleasant dimensions of living experience.


Sri Guru Amar Das most wonderfully expresses the Supreme Bliss experienced, enjoyed, and attained in begetting, finding, meeting the Holy True Guru.


In this hour of Supreme Bliss, all celestial musicians, nymphs, fairies have rushed forth in joining and singing the Glory of the Lord and Satguru. All celestial singers and Raags have joined in this symphony of ecstasy and captured this state of continuous rapture.


All seeming earthly joys of the world disappear and vanish at the time of death. The fleeting joys and pleasures of the world abruptly end up with the death of the body. But True Anand, Bliss blessed by the Satguru survives even death. It is ‘Sadeevi Sukh’, Perpetual Joy, Infinite and Supreme Heavenly state, True Affection for Eternity; Never changing; Always there.


Merged in this Anand one rises far above all dualities. This Anand is different from worldly pleasure or joy. It is also not dependent on worldly objects. This Anand pertains to the Bliss of the Atam (Soul, Primal energy). It does not diminish in adversity. It is perpetual in all ups and downs of life. This Anand transcends pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow. Merged in this Anand, one is actually merged in the Lord, and he feels, beholds, and experiences only the Eternal Presence of the Lord every moment of his earthly life.
