 Shabad Interpretation in English:

I seek the love of that beloved of mine.

Gold, jewels, giant pearls and rubies, I have no need for them.

Imperial power, fortunes, royal command, mansions and comforts, I have no desire for these.

The refuge at  Lord’s Feet, and dedication to the saints, these bring me peace and pleasure.

Nanak says, the fire of my desires is extinguished, on obtaining the love of the beloved.

 Shabad Interpretation in Punjabi:
 Shabad Interpretation in Hindi:

हे भाई, मुझे तो अपने प्यारे प्रभु का प्रेम ही चाहिए. कञ्चन, हीरे-जवाहरात, बढे-बढे मोती मेरी  नज़र मे कुछ नहीं हैं. मुझे न तो किसी राज-भाग की इच्छा हे और न ही कोई सुख-साधनों की चाहत हे. मुझे तो संत-जनों के चरणों में और उन की सांगत में ही अनंत सुख का अनुभव होता हे. हे नानक, अगर प्रभु का प्रेम मिल जाए तो मन तृप्ति हो जाता  हे.

    Most spiritual and healing Gurban kirtan by these Bibi jis.
    Their voice control in complete swar and taal is absolutely fantastic.
    We need Kirtan of this level at places like darbar Sahib & I do hope this will happen in my life time.
    My congratulations to Gurmat Gian Group.

    (Have passed on to youngest brother Dya Singh of Australia who is taking Kirtan to wider non-Sikh audiences worldwide.)

  5. This is exactly the way Ilahi Gurbani should be sung..in perfect taal, sur and with full control…and i see no possible reason why these Bibis should not be alowed to perform as Hazooree Ragis at Harmandar sahib Amritsar and other Takhat sahibaans. The Harmandar sahib deserves such talent especially now that Live Kirtan from it is broadcast worldwide and listened to daily by millions all over the world. I congratulate these soul-brides of our Beloved Guru and wish them all success in further improvements to their Kirtan. Guru ji Kirpa karan Chardeekalla Always.

  6. The renditions of these lovely ladies paint an inner beauty and piety which sadly seems to be missing in our current crop of (male) ragis. Why ‘lady jathas’ of this calibre are not allowed to do kirtan at Darbar Sahib, even today, is a mystery to me!

    I wish these ladies all the best in the future.

  7. singh khaalsaa says:


    i am simply amazed how beautiful kirtan this jatha does,
    and even further i am amazed by the two young members of the group,
    In times when we have so much “such” and “such” things going on around us. and we see Sikh girls going for out of tradition things… These two have opted for such a pure path… Well many might say credits go to their parents in whose provided environment these two grew…
    and were thus inspired,
    but certainly these two do deserve applaud for it takes a lot to do kirtan when there are so many around you out there to discourage you and try to make you shun your invaluable traditions and history.

    These two “kaurs” are doing a great sewa (service) . May Waheguru Bless them and their mentor and teacher Gurpreet Kaur Ji…

    May Waheguru Bless All


  8. Harjinder Singh says:

    Gur Sikhi and Gurbani is unequivocally second to none. Shabad Kirtan, weather it is recited by male or female makes no difference as long as it is recited within the shabad gurbani protocol is what matters. I am very saddened of the fact that our great Guru Jis and the Gurbani teaches us equality and prohibits us from the caste system and any indifferences between male and female. I fail to understand why our respected Bibiyan are not allowed to recite Gurbani at the most renowned holiest place in Punjab and in the world. I pray that the authorities realise soon and practice what they themselves preach and allow the respected Bibyan to recite Shabad Kirtan at all Sikh reliious institutions. I congratulate and salute these Bibiyan and wish them chardi kalaa and may Wahe Guru Ji bless them and grant them the most needed wish to recite at Siri Harmandar Sahib Ji.

    Excellent singing and video compilation of Oha Prem Piri.

    Please keep up the good work.

    Are the shabads commercially available ? If so what is the title of the CD / DVD set and where are they available from ?

    May Waheguru keep showering his blessings upon all involved in this project.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh !

    Waheguru’s fateh is when Sikhs sing shabads in this way and find ways of expressing the shabad through the video.

  10. Dear Sirs

    I discovered the site many months ago and appreciate the work these baeutiuful young ladies are doing. I am little disturbed that you rate the Darbar ragis so low. Most of the raagis are under instruction to keep everthing simple it is not the case they can not , they are catering to audiance not them selves only.

    I am not willing to go on the defensive about Darbar Sahib Kirtan, nor the traditions , I also have 4 daughters who perform kirtan to very high standard. Jathedar Sahib personally listens to My kids when ever He is in UK and they always discuss ‘why not Ladies’ question.

    Tradition is ther for a reason we can dis cuss it and , we can try and prersuade the powers be to change the tradition. You have gine a long way to prove that GIRLS are as good as any one else and one day it will happen.

    Gur Fateh.

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

      Bhai Valjinder Singh ji
      it is true that Hazoori Raagis do wonderful Kirtan and Kirtan shouldn’t and can’t be compared,
      kirtan should/must be done keeping the Gurbani first and raags should be secondary, Raags aren’t complimentary but are a supplementary tool.
      it is well known that Hazzori raagis do/ and can sing very well in raags,
      those comparing GurmatGianGroup with any other jatha are doing a gross mistake for kirtan is forever beautiful,
      these people might be the connoisseurs of raags…
      but GurmatGianGroup have never said anything in this regard…
      and personally i think we should perform Kirtan for our Master(Guru Sahib/Waheguru) and be in his Razaa only…

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Fateh

      • Manbir Singh says:

        singh khaalsaa ji

        You have rightly said that Gurbani has to be ‘First’ and Raagas ‘Secondary’ – This should be the definition of Gurmat Sangeet.

  11. Bhai Sahib Manbir Singh Ji:

    Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa
    Wahe Guru ji Ki Fateh Hai !

    Amazing, Waah mere Satguru ji, YOU have bestowed your human being such a melodious voice. I admire their hard work and dedication to gurbani sangeet.

    S.Manbir Singh ji, by any chance are you related to S. Khazan Singh ji of Calcutta. Let me know how can get CDs of such shabadas.

    Vahiguru ji ki Fateh

    Having once heard one sabad of this group on Desi radio last month I wanted to hear more but had no idea who they were. Then I got an email with the link to this website ( thank you Vahiguru Ji). My knowledge of Raags is limited but I am assuming all sabads are in their original raags as in Guru Granth Sahib.

    Many many thanks.

    beutifull shabad kirtan i m a tabla player i feel its imaging

  19. I had turned on the Desi Radio for kirtan but had to turn it off due to the poor singing of the raagis and turned to the Internet for this sabad.

  20. Three generations of our family listen to this shabad more than all other shabads put together. It is so beautifully rendered. We enjoy it so much. We click again and again and sometimes listen to an hour or more before going on to another shabad. Thank you so much for sharing these!

    • Gurpreet Kaur says:

      Gur Fateh Sukhmandir Kaur Ji

      It gives us immense pleasure and satisfaction when we find people like you appreciating our work. And specially when younger generation gets attracted to our Gurbani singing we have got all the possible rewards in this world. Thanks and do keep visiting and spreading the Guru’s Bliss to others.

  21. sam singh says:

    Sat Sri Akalji,

    I am totally blown away by the Gurmat Gian Group’s kirtan’s…i have never heard anything so spul stirring in my life. Kirtan in the Gurudwara seems to be rattled noise of pathis….you have tuly expressed the words of the Gurus, the way they should be told to the soul. Thank you so much for helping me remind myself that my SatGuru is all prevailing. Now please tell me where can i buy your audio CD’s from? Can i buy them online? I must suggest that you must find a way to get your CD’s on itunes…as this will help millions to be inspired by your voices. Anxiously awaiting your reply. Once again thank you for being on sikhnet.com…where i listen to you everyday. Sam.

  22. I am in Canada for 32 years and I was so shocked when few years ago I came to know that ladies were not allowed to perform kirtan at Darbar Sahib. Shabad Kirtan, weather it is recited by male or female makes no difference as long as it touches your soul and gives you peace of enjoyment and you enjoy listening again and again. I feel so depressed by thinking and thinking that our sikh religion & Gurbani teaches us equality between men and women. I can’t help thinking and sometimes crying why our sikh leaders don’t understand and act accordingly to stop this difference. I really want to go there and ask them who gave them birth. It means that only men have the right to live with freedom and ladies are not human being. It tells that they have no respect for women. If believe if they read Guru Granth Sahib ji and udnderstand the meaning then they might stop this dictatorship.ATTENTION: DARBAR SAHIB LEADERS, If you read this, please reply me for this question.
    I love & respect this jatha from the bottom of my heart. I bet you that this is first respectful jatha in the world who has performed the kirtan with all the details, meanings with words and gorgeous pictures. May God bless them in future with more kirtan.I wish to see this jatha and more female jaths at Darbar Sahib and other historical places/gurdwaras reciting kirtan with their beautiful voices. Keep it up my sisters! Baljit Brampton (Canada)

  26. A Singh on Raag Based Keertan says:

    Raag Naad Sabh Sach Hai Kimat Kahi Na Jaye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Guru ka sikh believe that The Word of True Guru, is true, absolutely true as it came through the mouth of Our Beloved Gurus. The best way to sing Shabad is to do in its own Raag, according to its own musical notation as the heading of a particular Shabad suggests.
    Guru Nanak Dev ji gave great importance to the singing Gurbani in “Musical Raags” because this is how Bani was sent to the Gurus. They just honest fully documented it, in the Raags, it was sent. The Holy scripture of 1343 pages out of 1430 are in music indicated in Title, that makes more than 90% of the bani written in Raags and how could we chose to ignore Guru’s Hukam in Shabad’s title.
    If we ask Guru Arjan Dev ji Maharaj the purpose of life, then Guru ji says, “My life’s Purpose is to Listen to Waheguru’s Stories, Sing the Keertan, Listen to the RAAGS, “Vibrations of the Sound, by doing so now, Waheguru is totally pleased with me now; I have obtained the fruits of my desires.
    According to Guru Ramdas ji,Guruji started performing Keertan, The tabla/pakhavaj was tuned to the string instrument, further more the instrument was tuned to Bilaval notes and Guruji written in His Bani, “Hey worldly people listen, I am singing the name of the magnificent Waheguru, “Har”, in the tune (melody) of Raag Bilaaval. I have also used beats (“naad”) to perform meditation in raag Bilaval. Guru ji further saying that I have followed the Hukam of the previous Gurus. Hearing the Guru’s Teachings, I obey them; this is the pre-ordained destiny written upon my forehead. What was said by the pervious Guru”
    Raags are not allowed in Islam. Pir Dastgir, a orthodox Muslim got upset by singing of DIVINE MESSAGE IN MUSICAL RAAG in the lands of Islam. Some threw stones at Guruji to stop singing Divine Hymn in RAAG. The combined power of Divine Raag & Shabad SMOOTHENED his heart. Guru Nanak Dev Ji explained to Pir Dastgir the true function of Musical Raag. The Pir was greatly impressed by the Guru’s explanation in favor of sacred musical Raag based Divine words to establish a bond between the soul and the Creator.
    But I do get upset when people in Gurudwara Sahib discriminate Raagi Sahiban for singing Keertan in Divine Raags.
    It is sad really.
    But according Sikh Rehat Maryaada from Sri Akaal Takhat, the definition of Keertan is,“The singing of Gurbani in Specified Raags is called Keertan.”

  27. Dear Gurmeet Bahenji,
    We here in Westchester county of New York, have a small family with about 20 members, brothers, sisters and kids – LOVE your tapes and have been distributing them to like minded people, who love classical shabad kirtans. Your endeavour is really highly appreciable. You are doing great job. Please let us know if you are visiting New York, so that we can arrange some kirtan programs for you.
    With our kindest regards

    This rendering of shabads is possible only with mehar of Akal purkh. May Waheguru bless u all with choicest of his blessings. You all are blessed people and we in return get to listen such shabad kirtan. Waheguru di nazar sade te pave, eh ardaas aap sab vaste te apne vaste karde rahiye, te us daa shukrana karde rahiae, ke us ne aap noo gurbani gayan te sanoo sunan da afsar ditta, te bakhshish keetee.
