A question & clarification regarding (Life is a flying bird)



Just this morning, I received a nice question regarding my yesterday's mail. I think this question is very intellectual and interesting, so I am attaching that email here, after deleting his/her name and id, along with my humble reply.

Dnkg bhaiya,
Hope you are fine with His grace and blessings. Just wanted to clarify one doubt tht,"Is it necessary to put the name of the writer in the song or poem?"Like in this,"The synchronization between the two is 'Rajan' also important." I am asking bcoj I feel tht the writer wants to convey tht I have written the same, I am the doer(a kind of ego). But we all know that Satguru is the doer of all, He gets it done in all ways. Is it a ritual? Please clarify..

Seeking blessings

Dhan Nirankar ji.
Thank you for your question, and bringing up this valuable point.
It depends on how you look at things and actions of other people. Yes..... we all know that Almighty Nirankar is the doer of all things behind the scenes. Even the choice of action and discrimination is also given by Him.

You have asked "Why the name? Is it a ritual ?"

Basically, it is a signature. Just like you sign your name in the end of every letter you write. Every official letter and every article in any magazine, may it be Sant Nirankari, Ek Nazar or Universal Target or any other magazine, news paper in the world, bears the name of the writer/the author, usually on the top, in the beginning of the article. 
However, in the poetry, it is customary to add the name at the end but within the poetry itself, such as 'Ghalib, Dagh, Momin, Zafar etc. It is a custom to add the name in the spiritual field also such as 'Rahem'  'Tulsi Das' "Kabeer' "Meera" ' Soor' ' Namdev' ' Tukaram'
'Kahe giridhar kaviraye' ,  just to mention a few. Even in the present day, every Geet we sing in the Sangats, bears a name in the end such as " Babu Omi,  Jagat, Vivek Shauq, Maan, Saaqi, Roshan, Mehram etc.  It is a simple statement. It may not be the ego.

Ego is how you think and how you present your thoughts.
I am not sure when or how this custom started. It could have been western or Islamic influence because we don't find the names of the writer in the older forms of Indian poetry before the 11th or 12th century. It is hard to find the author of many, or perhaps, most of the old Hindu scriptures before that era. The westerns, and then many Indian educated people started to question the authenticity of such scriptures. Perhaps. that was the reason that adding the author's name became a custom, such as Sant Kabeer ji, Tulsi Das, baba Avtar singh ji and Guru Nanak.
As far as I am concerned, and I think I can also speak on behalf of the other song, ghazal, geet writers, that adding the name in the end of the poetry is NOT for the sake of authentication. It is just a signature in the end of the statement, like signing a letter. It is not necessarily the 'ego '.

In fact, it could be just the opposite. Baba Avtar Singh ji used to sa
y that when you speak in the sangat, it is like a signed statement in front of a judge. Once you have given a signed statement, you will try to maintain it and make it a part of your daily life. Signing your name in the poetry and an article may humble you, and force you to think about your own statement if you face some adverse situations later in life. It might be possible to ignore all other 'updesh' and lectures we hear from others, but I am sure one would at least feel guilty for doing something against his or her own statement.  
So, as I said earlier, it depends on how you look at things, at your own and the other people's actions.
I am glad you asked this question. Now, I will have to remember my own statement even more.
Thank you. Dhan Nirankar.
Humbly,  ............................

Subject: The life is a flying bird जीवन है इक उड़ता पंछी,




जीवन है इक उड़ता पंछी, ज्ञान - कर्म इसके दो पंख
कैसे उड़ पायेगा पंछी , अगर न होंगे दोनों पंख
अध्यात्म के आकाश में उड़ना संभव  तब होगा
जब पूर्ण सामंजस्य में  'राजन' होंगे दोनों पंख

Jeevan hai ik udhta panchhi, Gyan - Karam iske do Pankh
Kaise udh Paayega Panchhi ,  agar na honge dono Pankh
Adhyaatam ke Aakaash me udhnaa  sambhav tab hoga,
Jab pooran Saamanjasya me "Rajan" honge dono Pankh

                                Translation

The life is a flying bird - Gyan and Karma, each is a wing.

Both are equally important, a bird cannot fly on one wing.

The synchronization between the two is 'Rajan' also important.

To fly higher up in 'spirituality', both have to be in perfect sync,

                              
                                            ' Rajan Sachdev "
