Jo Jo Deesai So So Rogi13:35
About the Album
Insightful, thought-provoking, and discerning- Presenting 'Jo Jo Deesai So So Rogi' in the mellifluous voice of Anandmurti G. The musical rendition of the epic Gurbani registered in Adi Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is a compilation of profound verses given by Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj. In this pious Shabad, Gurudev is lamenting the deplorable state of this manifested world where whosoever He sees is diseased, and it's only His revered Master Guru Ram Das Ji- a true yogi who has remained unaffected. Citing a slew of examples, Gurudev begins by quoting the disease of egotism- the illusionary false self that the entire humankind is born and gripped with. An elephant bonded to its intense sexual desire is caught and hunted down using a fake female elephant trap. Afflicted with its desire of taste, a fish is baited and hooked, leading to its slow death. Plagued by the passion for fragrance, a bumblebee is trapped inside a flower and eventually dies. Likewise, driven by its urge to see, a moth is lured to a flame and charred to death. The music is used by the hunters to entice a deer which leads to its downfall. The entire sensory world made of three Gunas is constantly degrading and is the root cause of all the diseases. In such a plagued state, the mortals die and are born again with the same afflictions. Even for a moment, one doesn't get to go free of these bondages. Disclosing the remedy, Gurudev states that without the grace of a True Master, this sickness can never be cured. The one on whom compassion of Lord befalls, such a blessed mortal is grabbed through the arm and pulled out of the miserable state- only to be placed at the lotus feet of a true Master. By reaching the enlightened ones and keeping the company of the truth, the bondages of attachments are snapped one by one. In the last verse, Guru Maharaj says that it's my revered Master who has cured me of my diseases. Listen to the musical rendition of this beautiful Gurbani Shabad with love and implore the benevolent Lord to take the seat of heart, helping us break free from all sensory attachments. Beseech the compassionate One to hold us by the arm and set us unto your path.
