The word Dharamsaal literally means the home of dharma, or a temple.  Just like paathsaal means house of education or school.  Guru Amardas says, "Your beautified the earth like a temple" in the following line:

ਹੁਕਮੇ ਧਰਤੀ ਸਾਜੀਅਨੁ ਸਚੀ ਧਰਮ ਸਾਲਾ ॥
Hukamae Dhharathee Saajeean Sachee Dhharam Saalaa ||
हुकमे धरती साजीअनु सची धरम साला ॥


By the Hukam of His Command, He created the earth, the true home of Dharma.



In the 34th pauri of Japji Sahib, Guru Nanak says

ਰਾਤੀ ਰੁਤੀ ਥਿਤੀ ਵਾਰ ॥
Raathee Ruthee Thhithee Vaar ||
राती रुती थिती वार ॥
Nights, days, weeks and seasons;

ਪਵਣ ਪਾਣੀ ਅਗਨੀ ਪਾਤਾਲ ॥
Pavan Paanee Aganee Paathaal ||
पवण पाणी अगनी पाताल ॥
Wind, water, fire and the nether regions

ਤਿਸੁ ਵਿਚਿ ਧਰਤੀ ਥਾਪਿ ਰਖੀ ਧਰਮਸਾਲ ॥
This Vich Dhharathee Thhaap Rakhee Dhharam Saal ||
तिसु विचि धरती थापि रखी धरम साल ॥
In the midst of these, He established the earth as a home for Dharma.

Guru Arjan Dev describes what happens in a temple in a Chhant in Raag Gauri:

ਮੋਹਨ ਤੇਰੇ ਊਚੇ ਮੰਦਰ ਮਹਲ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥
Mohan Thaerae Oochae Mandhar Mehal Apaaraa ||
मोहन तेरे ऊचे मंदर महल अपारा ॥
O Mohan, your temple is so lofty, and your mansion is unsurpassed.


ਮੋਹਨ ਤੇਰੇ ਸੋਹਨਿ ਦੁਆਰ ਜੀਉ ਸੰਤ ਧਰਮ ਸਾਲਾ ॥
Mohan Thaerae Sohan Dhuaar Jeeo Santh Dhharam Saalaa ||
मोहन तेरे सोहनि दुआर जीउ संत धरम साला ॥
O Mohan, your gates are so beautiful. They are the worship-houses of the Saints.


ਧਰਮ ਸਾਲ ਅਪਾਰ ਦੈਆਰ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਸਦਾ ਕੀਰਤਨੁ ਗਾਵਹੇ ॥
Dhharam Saal Apaar Dhaiaar Thaakur Sadhaa Keerathan Gaavehae ||
धरम साल अपार दैआर ठाकुर सदा कीरतनु गावहे ॥
In these incomparable worship-houses, they continually sing Kirtan, the Praises of their Lord and Master.

ਜਹ ਸਾਧ ਸੰਤ ਇਕਤ੍ਰ ਹੋਵਹਿ ਤਹਾ ਤੁਝਹਿ ਧਿਆਵਹੇ ॥
Jeh Saadhh Santh Eikathr Hovehi Thehaa Thujhehi Dhhiaavehae ||
जह साध संत इकत्र होवहि तहा तुझहि धिआवहे ॥
Where the Saints and the Holy gather together, there they meditate on you.

Places of worship are made so saints can get together, meditate upon the one and sing the ONE's praises.  The purpose of life is to sing and the earth has been designed to be a place where this singing can be done.  The earth has been designed by God to come together and sing. Earth becomes beautiful when we come together and sing.  Such a beautiful concept. 

What is singing other than just following the command of the ONE.  Gurbani says Sabhai Ghat Raam Bolai or Every heart is singing in the temple of the earth.

We had dinner at "On the Border" in Dublin, California today. We were celebrating the Sixty Plus'th birthday of my uncle who is visiting from India with my Aunt and their son. This was their first trip to America. The idea was to ease them into American food. What better food to start than Mexican.  It is spicier and more flavorful than most other American food.  That makes it similar to Indian food. It was a safer bet.

We must have been 80 percent done with the mean when I popped the question. I was not as nervous as I should have been.  Even though I knew that my Aunt is a complainer and among all the 4 siblings my dad has, she is known for being tough to please.   So I asked a safe question: "Which dish did you like the most?"

She had shared a chicken fajita with uncle, shared a chicken enchilada with her son, and I had shared some of my cheese enchilada with her.  We also had chips, salsa and freshly made guacamole.  There had got to be something that she liked.  It was a safe question like, "You won't have tea, will you?"

Then came the dreaded response: "Nothing really" ... along with the famous why-are-you-doing-this-to-me headshake.  We all had a great laugh ... and made several jokes about it. I jokingly laid the blame on mom and dad, and said they ordered the wrong dish for her.  Her son said, it didn't matter what restaurant or dish it was, she would have the same response.

Then we came back home.  Poor thing, my aunt. She said what she said, but then her conscience was hurting her. At home she thanked me for the dinner, and apologized for being rude.  I knew she was feeling bad.  I told her its OK; I told her that I don't even hear negative comments.  I told her about the filter I have developed as a performing musician.  You learn to not hear criticism, however well it means.

Awaken to your humanity – A letter to the next generation of artists by Wayne Shorter & Herbie Hancock

0

Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock have been friends for over forty years. In the pursuit of their art, they’ve shattered boundaries previously believed unbreakable, they’ve revolutionized the concept of innovation, and have chosen to make the endeavor of living compassionately and courageously the center of their lives.

From their early days composing and playing together with Miles Davis in Davis’ Second Great Quintet, to branching out and flourishing in their individual endeavors, Wayne and Herbie’s contributions to the world of music have been nothing short of extraordinary. Together, they’ve won a combined total of twenty-five Grammys. Despite their countless accolades, they’ll both insist that their greatest achievements lie in their roles as husbands, fathers, and humans of this earth.

After the recent rash of tragedies around the globe in the past year from Paris to San Bernardino, we had the opportunity to ask Wayne and Herbie how the next generation of artists can respond. Below is an open letter with their thoughts.

To the Next Generation of Artists,

We find ourselves in turbulent and unpredictable times.

From the horror at the Bataclan, to the upheaval in Syria and the senseless bloodshed in San Bernardino, we live in a time of great confusion and pain. As an artist, creator and dreamer of this world, we ask you not to be discouraged by what you see but to use your own lives, and by extension your art, as vehicles for the construction of peace.

While it’s true that the issues facing the world are complex, the answer to peace is simple; it begins with you. You don’t have to be living in a third world country or working for an NGO to make a difference. Each of us has a unique mission. We are all pieces in a giant, fluid puzzle, where the smallest of actions by one puzzle piece profoundly affects each of the others. You matter, your actions matter, your art matters.

We’d like to be clear that while this letter is written with an artistic audience in mind, these thoughts transcend professional boundaries and apply to all people, regardless of profession.

FIRST, AWAKEN TO YOUR HUMANITY

We are not alone. We do not exist alone and we cannot create alone. What this world needs is a humanistic awakening of the desire to raise one’s life condition to a place where our actions are rooted in altruism and compassion. You cannot hide behind a profession or instrument; you have to be human. Focus your energy on becoming the best human you can be. Focus on developing empathy and compassion. Through the process you’ll tap into a wealth of inspiration rooted in the complexity and curiosity of what it means to simply exist on this planet. Music is but a drop in the ocean of life.

EMBRACE AND CONQUER THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

The world needs new pathways. Don’t allow yourself to be hijacked by common rhetoric, or false beliefs and illusions about how life should be lived. It’s up to you to be the pioneers. Whether through the exploration of new sounds, rhythms, and harmonies or unexpected collaborations, processes and experiences, we encourage you to dispel repetition in all of its negative forms and consequences. Strive to create new actions both musically and with the pathway of your life. Never conform.

WELCOME THE UNKNOWN

The unknown necessitates a moment-to-moment improvisation or creative process that is unparalleled in potential and fulfillment. There is no dress rehearsal for life because life, itself, is the real rehearsal. Every relationship, obstacle, interaction, etc. is a rehearsal for the next adventure in life. Everything is connected. Everything builds. Nothing is ever wasted. This type of thinking requires courage. Be courageous and do not lose your sense of exhilaration and reverence for this wonderful world around you.

UNDERSTAND THE TRUE NATURE OF OBSTACLES

We have this idea of failure, but it’s not real; it’s an illusion. There is no such thing as failure. What you perceive as failure is really a new opportunity, a new hand of cards, or a new canvas to create upon. In life there are unlimited opportunities. The words, “success” and “failure”, themselves, are nothing more than labels. Every moment is an opportunity. You, as a human being, have no limits; therefore infinite possibilities exist in any circumstance.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO INTERACT WITH THOSE WHO ARE DIFFERENT FROM YOU

The world needs more one-on-one interaction among people of diverse origins with a greater emphasis on art, culture and education. Our differences are what we have in common. We can work to create an open and continuous plane where all types of people can exchange ideas, resources, thoughtfulness and kindness. We need to be connecting with one another, learning about one another, and experiencing life with one another. We can never have peace if we cannot understand the pain in each other’s hearts. The more we interact, the more we will come to realize that our humanity transcends all differences.

STRIVE TO CREATE AGENDA-FREE DIALOGUE

Art in any form is a medium for dialogue, which is a powerful tool. It is time for the music world to produce sound stories that ignite dialogue about the mystery of us. When we say the mystery of us, we’re talking about reflecting and challenging the fears, which prevent us from discovering our unlimited access to the courage inherent in us all. Yes, you are enough. Yes, you matter. Yes, you should keep going.

Read More: All is sound, that is it

BE WARY OF EGO

Arrogance can develop within artists, either from artists who believe that their status makes them more important, or those whose association with a creative field entitles them to some sort of superiority. Beware of ego; creativity cannot flow when only the ego is served.

WORK TOWARDS A BUSINESS WITHOUT BORDERS

The medical field has an organization called Doctors Without Borders. This lofty effort can serve as a model for transcending the limitations and strategies of old business formulas which are designed to perpetuate old systems in the guise of new ones. We’re speaking directly to a system that’s in place, a system that conditions consumers to purchase only the products that are dictated to be deemed marketable, a system where money is only the means to an end. The music business is a fraction of the business of life. Living with creative integrity can bring forth benefits never imagined.

APPRECIATE THE GENERATION THAT WALKED BEFORE YOU

Your elders can help you. They are a source of wealth in the form of wisdom. They have weathered storms and endured the same heartbreaks; let their struggles be the light that shines the way in the darkness. Don’t waste time repeating their mistakes. Instead, take what they’ve done and catapult you towards building a progressively better world for the progeny to come.

LASTLY, WE HOPE THAT YOU LIVE IN A STATE OF CONSTANT WONDER

As we accumulate years, parts of our imagination tend to dull. Whether from sadness, prolonged struggle, or social conditioning, somewhere along the way people forget how to tap into the inherent magic that exists within our minds. Don’t let that part of your imagination fade away. Look up at the stars and imagine what it would be like to be an astronaut or a pilot. Imagine exploring the pyramids or Machu Picchu. Imagine flying like a bird or crashing through a wall like Superman. Imagine running with dinosaurs or swimming like mer-creatures. All that exists is a product of someone’s imagination; treasure and nurture yours and you’ll always find yourself on the precipice of discovery.

Read More: Guru Nanak's Aarti

How does any of this lend to the creation of a peaceful society you ask? It begins with a cause. Your causes create the effects that shape your future and the future of all those around you. Be the leaders in the movie of your life. You are the director, producer, and actor. Be bold and tirelessly compassionate as you dance through the voyage that is this lifetime.

The time to sing is now, the time to row your boat is now – Khara Bayu Boy Bege – Translation

0
A timeless songs that reminds us that the time to sing is now ...



The wind is high, clouds dark,
O the boatman, Row your boat.

You give it the direction, 
while I prepare the sail high-
Row, Row your boat.

Resonance of the chains, time and again, 
Isn’t the yell for despair
Unbearable are the bounds, 
its oscillations are hence.
Row, Row your boat.

Do not ask, whether or not to venture,
The day, time just or not, anxiously.
If your luck runs against, roughness beyond control,
Smashing storm, sea waves even higher,
Be confident, adjust to the rhythm,
Chanting His name merrily. 
Row, Row your boat.

Kharobayu boi bege charidik chai meghe
Ogo neye naokhani baiyo
Tumi kose dharo hal, ami tule badhi pal
Hai maro maro tan haiyo

Srinkhole barbar jhanjhano jhankar noi a to taronir krandon sankar
Bandhon durbar sajjyo na hoi ar talomalo kare aaj tai o
Hai maro maro tan haiyo

Goni goni din khan chanchal kori mon
Bolo na jai ki nai jai re
Sanshoi parabar antare habe par
Udbege takaiyo na baire
Jodi mate mahakal uddam jatajal jhore hoi lunthito dhau uthe uttal
Hoyo nako kunthito tale tar diyo tal joy joy joygan gaiyo

Hai maro maro tan haiyo

This is much much better what’s going on in india in the name of Bollywood.

Rishab Prasanna, Bansuri Virtuoso

WOW – It is great to hear some different and pleasant.

Dan, Progressive Rock Musician

The mixture of minor key melody scales within the overriding major chords is foreign to my ear (save for George Harrison) fascinating, haunting, and beautiful. Wonderful vocal quality and control as well. This is really nice stuff. – Tom

Tom Balek, Musician from Charlotte

Goosebumps! David and Shiv, stunning work in “Jo Mange”!

Dorinda, Listener from Texas

Love the arrangement/placement of your harmonies in “Chamkan Tare”. Beautifully done.

Slyder, Musician from Texas

Wow… “Chamkan Tare” is so beautiful. Shiv you have a gorgeous voice 🙂 & Raul’s drums makes this song shimmer!

Caligulita Balmer, Musician from Guadeloupe

“Oooh this is too exquisite for words … I could listen to this all time … sheer bliss.

Annie, Singer/Songwriter on "Jo Mange"

Chamkan Tare made me cry in a nice way. Amazing 🙂

Dorothy Carroll, Ambient Musician, UK

Shiv’s voice reminds me of Jagjit Singh voice from the 1970’s.

Dattaprasad Ranade, Ghazal Singer

I really like the understated quality of Shiv’s vocal delivery. It remains Indian but with a little bit of something akin to alternative rock or indie folk.

Charlie Peacock, Grammy Winning Artist and Producer

Even when he speaks, it seems like he is singing.

Professor Atamjit Singh, Late UC Berkeley Professor

“Shiv’s voice is as sweet as his name.”

  • Sat Sri Akal Shiv Ji. I was honored to listen to you, Fontain and Farhan today at the San Jose Gurudwara. Most people here have appreciated your music, but I was enthralled by your clarity of thought in how you not just sang the shabad but how you related it to various excerpts in gurbani and in real life. I am truly grateful to you for lending clarity and reasoning along with you melodious voice to the gurbani.

    If you perform at the gurudwara regularly, I would love to listen to you again as it has been a revelation to me. I can still feel the goosebumps! Thank you!

    – Gagandeep Lamba on Jul 25, 2016


  • Shivpreet ji, I came across this video of yours last year while I was writing my book. I must thank you because your voice served as a meditation technique for me. I had listened to this Shabad before also, but you made me fall in love with it. I also mentioned this shabad in my book. God bless you, keep singing!

    – Nidhi Kaur on Jun 01, 2016

  • My family and I reside LOVE your compositions. We listen to them every day. My eldest daughter, who’s 4 years old now, has learnt to sing shabads listening to your youtube videos.

    We love your voice, your ability to blend age old shabads with today’s contemporary music. Thank YOU for doing what you do. You’re impacting lives of people, and kids, and helping shape their destiny, with them getting interested in shabads at such a tender age.

You quoted Einstein that good people being silent is the reason why the world is a dangerous place. You quoted MLK that a person is as good as dead, if he does not stand up for what is right. You were fabulous. Please post your compete sermon on YouTube – we came at the end and missed a lot. Also please post more your English sermons on YouTube. I also spoke with you after your …
