DEDICATION

I went to fetch water to bathe the Beloved,

But fish had already spoiled it;

I went to pluck flower to worship the Beloved,

But flower-bee had already smelt it;

I went to draw forth milk to feed the Beloved,

But the colt had already tasted it;

Here is Beloved, there is Beloved, everywhere is Beloved,

Then what shall I dedicate to Thee ?

Thy name is Truth,  Thy love I beg of Thee;

I yearn for the day when chanting thy name

Tears will pour down my face;

I yearn for the day when chanting Thy name,

My throat will choke with ecstasy;

I yearn for the day when chanting Thy name,

Hair of my body will stand on end;

I yearn for the day when chanting Thy name,

My tongue will refuse to utter its prayer;

And the soul lost in the joy of Thy blissful embrace,

Forget to beg any boon of Thee;

Oh Thou, who stealeth the heart of Thy ‘Bhagtas’

Hari Nanak;*

I dedicate at, Thy feet this work,

A humble essay on Thy glorious Jap ji.

 

*G. G. S. P. 1386

Hari Guru Nanak jin parseou te bauhur phir jon na aayio.

The above poem was penned by a very devout person Pritamdas V. Karamchandani, F.R.C.P., who wrote these words - which must have poured from the core of his heart - more than forty-five years ago, as a DEDICATION to his Publication: JAP JI by GURU NANAK SAHIB.

We are taking liberty to reproduce the Foreword to the said publication so that the ardent lovers of Gurbani and Sikh Literature may benefit from it.
