Main kya maangoon, kuchh Thir na reha..

When I came back from Hyderabad, I was reeling under the loss of father and grandmother both. As the day passed, the only memories that came back were of her teaching me Gurmukhi, the technique of sweeping, mopping, and knitting. I didn't remember any of the less pleasant stuff.

This year, I have lost both grandmothers, and my father. A lot of ppl ask me how I know what I know. It is because of my grandparents, and my parents.

Was looking for peace. This is a shabad that I hum often, with just one line - मैं क्या मांगूं, कुछ थिर न रहा, हर दीजे नाम प्यारी जीओ (What should I ask for, since everything in the world is ephemeral.. Dear Lord, grant me thy name..)

Sharing the shabad that has brought me much peace in this week..

And the lyrics with their meaning are here:
Tek :-  

Tu Prabh Data Daan Mat Pura, Ham Thare Bihkari Jio.
( You, God, Are The Giver Of Gifts;
 The Lord Of Perfect Understanding;
  I Am A Mere Beggar At Your Door. ) 

Shabad:-

Mai Kya Mangu, Kuch Thirro Na Rhaai
Har Dije Naam Piyari Jio ||1||
( What Should I Beg For? Nothing Remains Permanent;
  O Lord, Please, Bless Me With Your Beloved Name. ||1|| )

Tu Prabh Data Daan Mat Pura, Ham Thare Bihkari Jio.
( You, God, Are The Giver Of Gifts;
 The Lord Of Perfect Understanding;
  I Am A Mere Beggar At Your Door. ) 

Ghat Ghat Rav Rahaiya Banvari.
( In Each And Every Heart, The Lord, The Lord Of The Forest, Is Permeating And Pervading. )
 
Jal Thal Mahiyal, Gupto Varte.
Gur Shabdi Dehk Nihari Jio. || Raho ||
( In The Water, On The Land, And In The Sky, He Is Pervading But Hidden;
  Through The Word Of The Guru's Shabad, He Is Revealed. ||Pause||  )

Tu Prabh Data Daan Mat Pura, Ham Thare Bihkari Jio.
( You, God, Are The Giver Of Gifts;
 The Lord Of Perfect Understanding;
  I Am A Mere Beggar At Your Door. ) 

Satnam Shri Waheguru.
( The Name Is Truth Creative Being Personified No Fear No Hatred Image Of The Undying. )

Marat Peeyal Akash Dikhayo,
Gur Satguru Kirpa Dhari Jio.
( In This World, In The Nether Regions Of The Underworld, 
  And In The Akaashic Ethers, The Guru, The True Guru, Has Shown Me The Lord;
  He Has Showed Me With His Mercy. )

Soo Barham Ajohni, Hai Bhi Honi,
Gath Bhitar Dehk Murari Jio.||2|| 
( He Is The Unborn Lord God; He Is, And Shall Ever Be.
   Deep Within Your Heart, Behold Him, The Destroyer Of Ego.||2|| )

Mai Kya Mangu, Kuch Thirro Na Rhaai
Har Dije Naam Piyari Jio ||1||
( What Should I Beg For? Nothing Remains Permanent;
  O Lord, Please, Bless Me With Your Beloved Name. )

Janam Maran Ko Eh Jag Bapudo, 
 Ihn Duhje Bahgat Visari Jio ||
( This Wretched World Is Caught In Birth And Death;
  In The Love Of Duality; It Has Forgotten Devotional
  Worship Of Lord. )

Satguru Mile Ta Gurumat Paiye,
Sakat Bahji Hari Jio ||3||
( Meeting The True Guru, The Guru's Teaching Are
  Obtained; The Faithless Cynic Loses The Game Of Life. ||3|| )

Mai Kya Mangu, Kuch Thirro Na Rhaai
Har Dije Naam Piyari Jio ||1||
( What Should I Beg For? Nothing Remains Permanent;
  O Lord, Please, Bless Me With Your Beloved Name. )

Satnam Shri Waheguru.
( The Name Is Truth Creative Being Personified No Fear No Hatred Image Of The Undying. )

Satguru Bandhan Tohad Nirare,
Bahod Na Garabh Majahri Jio ||
( Breaking My Bonds, The True Guru Has Set Me Free,
  And I Shall Not Be Cast Into The Womb Of Reincarnation Again. )

Nanak Gayan Ratan Pargasiya,
Har Man Vasya Nirnkari Jio ||4||8||
( O Nanak, The Jewel Of Spiritual Wisdom Shines Forth, 
  And The Lord, The Formless Lord, Dwells Within My Mind.||4||8|| )

Mai Kya Mangu, Kuch Thirro Na Rhaai
Har Dije Naam Piyari Jio ||1||
( What Should I Beg For? Nothing Remains Permanent;
  O Lord, Please, Bless Me With Your Beloved Name. ) 

Satnam Shri Waheguru.
( The Name Is Truth Creative Being Personified No Fear No Hatred Image Of The Undying. )

Tu Prabh Data Daan Mat Pura, Ham Thare Bihkari Jio.
( You, God, Are The Giver Of Gifts;
 The Lord Of Perfect Understanding;
  I Am A Mere Beggar At Your Door. )
