Tribute To A Hero

We had earlier posted an Mp3 Track, that poetically described the Historically Touching Sakhi of Bhai Mati Das

(if you didn't catch it for the first time Click Here).

With the seva of a few individuals the composition of the lyrical content as well as translations have been completed.

We would like to thank the following individuals for their seva...

Sardar Jai Singh
Sardar Yogi Singh
Sardar Amarinder Singh

Enjoy...

Tribute To A Hero

Sirho ban ke tatteeree khoon cho gaya
Droplets of blood formed a stream and started flowing;

Sirho ban ke tateeree khoon cho gaya
Droplets of blood formed a stream and started flowing;

Chowk Chandini da Delhi (naal)laal ho gaya
Chandni Chowk’s Delhi became sanguine(red) with his blood;

Roya umber dekh kay nazara
Watching this grim scene, the sky wept;

Mukho Sat Nam bol da
From his mouth he spoke (the eternal lyric) The True Name; the only true name we know is of The Lord;

Bhai Mati Das, Guru Da Piyara
Bhai Mati Das, the beloved of the Guru;

Mukho Sat Nam bol da
From his mouth he spoke (the eternal lyric) The True Name; the only true name we know is of The Lord;

Aara khichda jalaad sun doliya
Working the saw; the executioner on hearing Gods Name from Bhai Sahibs mouth; he was shocked/amazed

Mukhon Gaj Ke see Mati Das boliya
From his mouth, Mati Das courageously roared;

Mera nibh javay sidak piyaara
Go on so that I may prove how strong my Gurus discipline (rehnee;rehat) is; or how dear my Gurus sikhi is to me;

Mukho Sat Nam bol da
Bhai Mati Das, Guru Da Piyara
Mukho Sat Nam bol da

Aara karda hai do par shareer noon
The saw splits the physical body into two halves;

Lokee dekh ke vagaunde akhon neer noon
As they watched, those that looked on, wiped away the tears that flowed.

Dol gaya see Moghul hathiyara
The Moghul emperor himself was stunned.

Mukho sat nam bol da
Bhai Mati Das, Guru Da Piyara
Mukho Sat Nam Bol da

Singh ant noon shaheedi jaam pee gaya
At the very end, our Lion, drank the nectar of martyrdom;

Sher mar-ke tareekay vala jee gaya
Transcendently(in-a-way), our lion, even in death lived on (Even when hes dead the legend still lives on).

Sher Mur-Ke tareekay vala jee gaya
Transcendently(in-a-way), our lion, even in death lived on (Even when hes dead the legend still lives on).

Gun gaunda hai dev jag sara
The whole world sings the praises of his sacrifice.

Mukho sat nam bol da
Bhai Mati Das, Guru Da Piyara
Mukho Sat Nam Bol da
