Gateway to the Soul: Sukhmani Sahib
3 CD Set Sukhmani Sahib was written by Guru Arjan, the fifth Sikh Guru, as a prayer in the form of a song to bring everlasting peace and comfort to the mind. It's sound is tranquilizing and removes stress. Gateway to the Soul gives you the powerful effects of Sukhmani Sahib in English translation, to open your heart, to live in gratitude, to steady your spiritual discipline, and to connect you with your strength, endurance, courage and Infinite consciousness to overcome every obstacle. Listening to or reciting Sukhmani Sahib once a day can change your destiny from misery to prosperity and give you inner balance, grace, radiance, energy and the power to sacrifice. It is composed of 24 ashtapadis, one for each hour of the day. Ashtapadi means \'eight steps\' thus, each ashtapadi is divided into 8 sections. The ashtapadi is introduced by a short Shalok, the lines that contain the central theme which the subsequent 8 steps expand upon. Sukhmani Sahib is written in Tantric Naad: this means men and women read this Bhani aloud, alternating lines. Although the greatest benefit of Sukhmani Shaib is through recitation in the original Gurmukhi, Gateway to the Soul offers it in English, with musical accompaniment, so you can enjoy the subtle, joyful vibrations of each ashtapadi.
