Shabad of Guru Gobind Singh Ji That Mentions All Regions of India


In Akal Ustat verses by Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh Ji where he tells that all the people in world are in command of God/worship God/Sing Glory of God.

Akal Ustat is the name given to the second Bani in the second holy scriptures of the Sikhs called the Dasam Granth. This text spans from page 33 to page 94 of the 2326 pages of this holy book of the Sikhs at www.sridasam.org. (Original text is printed over 1428 pages). It is composed of 271 verses, and is largely devotional in nature.

The word “Akal” means the “timeless primal being” and the word “Ustat” means “praise”. So together the words “Akal Ustat” means the “praise of the Almighty God”. Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru writes praises of God with love and dedication saying that God is worshipped by various peoples in many different ways and with varying names and methods thus:

Guru Gobind Singh himself signed this Bani(ਆਗੈ ਲਿਖਾਰੀ ਕੇ ਦਸਤਖਤ ॥). The bani starts with blessings of God. (ਅਕਾਲ ਪ੝ਰਖ ਕੀ ਰਛਾ ਹਮਨੈ ॥) i.e The non-temporal Purusha (All-Pervading Lord) is my Protector. which continues with ਸਰਬ ਲੋਹ ਕੀ ਰਛਿਆ ਹਮਨੈ ॥(The All-Steel Lord is my Protector.). basically Saraloh means whole qualities of God which acts as Iron. God is known as Kaal(Destroyer), Deen Dyal(Helper), Gopal etc. these all qualities are like Iron. this continued with ਸਰਬ ਕਾਲ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਰਛਿਆ ਹਮਨੈ ॥ which is in all three lok(worlds) god helps which continuous with ਸਰਬ ਲੋਹ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਸਦਾ ਰਛਿਆ ਹਮਨੈ ॥, i.e always qualities of god is helpful to us forever and ever in all worlds.

In the Akal Ustat, the Guru describes Almighty God in all His glory by making use of metaphysical references and the masterful use of imaginative language and image creating phrases. The extended similes and comparisons are so lucid and clear that the reader gets riveted to what is been narrated. “There are millions of Indras and incarnations of Brahma, Vishnu and Krishna. But, without worship of God none are accepted in His Court.” (stanza 38)

There is a Funny fact at end of Akal Ustat, i.e Guru Sahib haven’t wrote last stanza complete but left the last line to show that i am tired his praise could not be finished. After Giving Such divine wisdom Guru Sahib did this.

“The Bengalis of Bengal, the Phirangis of Phirangistan and Dilwalis of Delhi are the followers of Thy Command.

The Rohelas of Rohu mountain, the Maghelas of Magadha, the heroic Bangasis of Bangas and the Bundhelas of Bundhelkhand destroy their sins in Thy devotion.

Gorkhas sing Thy Praises, the residents of China and Manchuria bow their heads before Thee and the Tibetans destroy the sufferings of their bodies by remembering Thee.

The inhabitants of the east could not know Thy end, the people of Hingala and Himalaya mountains remember Thee, residents of Gor and Gardez sing he Praises of Thy Name.

The Yogis perform Yoga, many are absorbed in doing Pranayama and residents of Arabia remember Thy Name.

The people of France and England revere Thee, the inhabitants of Kandhaar and Quraishis know Thee; the people of western side recognize their duty towards Thee.

The inhabitants of Maharashtra and Magadha perform austerities with profound affection; the residents of Drawar and Tilang countries recognise Thee as the Abode of Dharma.2.254”
