Tere Sukhan De Sathi - Everyone is friend in Good Times only
Dharna Video by Bhai Ranjit Singh Ji Khalsa DhadrianWale.
A Dharna on how most of our friends are friends in good times only. They all tend to turn away in bad times. Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib explains this well in following Shabad.
sorath mehlaa 9.
Sorat'h, Ninth Mehl:
pareetam jaan layho man maahee.
O dear friend, know this in your mind.
apnay sukh si-o hee jag faaNDhi-o ko kaahoo ko naahee. ||1|| rahaa-o.
The world is entangled in its own pleasures; no one is for anyone else. ||1||Pause||
sukh mai aan bahut mil baithat rahat chahoo dis ghayrai.
In good times, many come and sit together, surrounding you on all four sides.
bipat paree sabh hee sang chhaadit ko-oo na aavat nayrai. ||1||
But when hard times come, they all leave, and no one comes near you. ||1||
ghar kee naar bahut hit jaa si-o sadaa rahat sang laagee.
Your wife, whom you love so much, and who has remained ever attached to you,
jab hee hans tajee ih kaaN-i-aa parayt parayt kar bhaagee. ||2||
runs away crying, "Ghost! Ghost!", as soon as the swan-soul leaves this body. ||2||
ih biDh ko bi-uhaar bani-o hai jaa si-o nayhu lagaa-i-o.
This is the way they act - those whom we love so much.
ant baar naanak bin har jee ko-oo kaam na aa-i-o. ||3||12||139||
At the very last moment, O Nanak, no one is any use at all, except the Dear Lord. ||3||12||139||
