Late Dr. Ganda Singh

Sikh History & Research

Punjabi Translation of the Persian Text included in this volume is the
work of Dr. Ganda Singh. It is taken out of his book, “Bhai Nand
Lal Granthavli,” published by Punjabi Universsssity, Patiala.



















Bhai Nand Lal ‘Goya’ (1633-1713), the great exegete of Sikhism,
occupies a unique place of honour and reverence among the Sikhs. His
works form a part of approved Sikh canon and are recited in Gurdwaras.
Most of his writings are in Persian except a few like Jot Vigas which is
in Punjabi.
When Sardar Pritpal Singh of Canada proposed that his rendering
of Bhai Nand Lal’s works in English may be published by the Institute
of Sikh Studies, the idea was welcome as it would provide an easy
access to valuable Sikh lore to the younger generation who do not
know Persian. The Institute, therefore, accepted the proposal and Sardar
Pritpal Singh was asked to send his translation. It is an English rendering
of the Punjabi translation of Bhai Nand Lal’s verses done by renowned
scholar Dr Ganda Singh that had been published by the Punjabi
University, Patiala under the title Granthavali of Bhai Nand Lal.
It was considered apt that before publication, the script should be
seen through by an expert well versed in Persian and English. Prof.
Gurdial Singh ‘Aarif’ who is well known Persian scholar (Munshi Fazil)
and had been teaching English at Government College, Chandigarh was
requested to check its language. He has accomplished the job deftly
and has also gone through the printed proofs.
I appreciate Sardar Pritpal Singh for taking this praiseworthy
initiative and producing his scholarly lucubration. He also collected
funds to help the Institute defray its publication expenses. Prof. (Dr)
Kirpal Singh, the eminent historian and scholar of Persian, who was
Editor of the Abstracts of Sikh Studies - the journal of the Institute handled this project eruditely on behalf of the Institute and he was ably
assisted by Maj Gen (Dr.) Jaswant Singh who, working tirelessly,
contributed his laudable acumen to the publication of Bhai Nand Lal’s
works in Persian.
I express my sincerest thanks to all of them and my honourable

colleagues on the Institute of Sikh Studies for the production of this
book which will serve as a good vade mecum to those who are interested
in accessing advante garde outpourings of the great Bhai Nand Lal.

Bhai Nand Lal Goya (1633-1713 A.D.) the poet laureate of Guru
Gobind Singh (1675-1608 A.D.) was one of the greatest exponents of
Sikhism. His works form part of Sikh canon and have been recited in
holy congregations alongwith the Sikh scripture. His most popular ode
eulogising Guru Gobind Singh viz “Nasuro Mansoor Guru Gobind
Singh” has been echoing in every Gurdwara and sung with devotion in
the congregations.
Bhai Nand Lal was a versatile genius. Besides being a poet of
eminence he was erudite scholar of Sikhism. He delved deep in Gurbani
and like Saint Paul of Christianity, codified the utterances of the Tenth Master
in the form of Rehat Namah and Tankhah Namah. His study of Gurbani
was very intensive and his Persian verses convey the import of Gurbani.
That is why Rababis (Muslim musicians of holy hymns) often quote the
verses of Bhai Nand Lal to elucidate the concept contained in the Gurbani.
How identical are their meanings can be illustrated by a few examples from
Bhai Nand Lal’s Gazals.
Bhai Nand Lal writes : Qadam-i-aan beh ke rah-i-khuda pemuda
may bashad
Gurbani : Pair suhawey ton dar juldey.
– Guru Granth Sahib, p. 64
Bhai Nand Lal : Daran zaman ke yad neahi byad may miram
Gurbani : Aakhan jiwan visrai mar jaon.
– Guru Granth Sahib, p. 12
Bhai Nand Lal: Dil gar dana bawad ander kanare yar ast
Gurbani: Man tun jot sarup hain apna mool pachhan
– Guru Granth Sahib, p. 441
Bhai Nand Lal : Chasham gar bina bawad har tarif didar ast
Gurbani : Jehan pekhan tahan tu hi basna.
– Guru Granth Sahib, p. 181

Bhai Nand Lal ranks with the galaxy of Sufi poets of Iran like
Hafiz and Maulana Rum. He represents Sikhism in the genre of Sufi
literature, as his verses are inspired by Gurbani. A few examples of
similarity between Bhai Nand Lal’s Gazals and those of Hafiz and
Maulana Rum are noted below:
Bhai Nand Lal writes:
Goya khamosh bash ke suda-i-ishq-i-yar
Ta aan siar ast az sar-i-khud wa namay kunem
Goya be silent so that secret of intense love
may not be disclosed from our head
Hafiz writes:
Badard-i-ishq basaaz khamosh sho Hafiz
Ramuz-i-ishq mukun fash peshe ahl-i-aqul
Hafiz make harmony with intense love and be
Do not divulge enigma of love be fore the
sagacious people.
Bhai Nand Lal writes:
Murshad-i-kamal hama ra arzoo ast
Gair murshad kas niabad rah-i-badost
All desire the perfect guide (God).
Without guide nobody has found way to friend
Maulana Rum says:
Har ke oo be murshade dar rah shud
Oo az golan gumrah wa dar chah shud
Whosoever treads the way without guide
he is misled by imaginary wild demons and falls into well
(For more details see Shri Lakshvir Singh of Nabha’s article in
Tasnifat-i-Goya edited by Gyani Mahan Singh, Khalsa Tract Society,
Amritsar, 1963, (pp. 17-44).
It is a matter of regret that the younger generation is ignorant about
their heritage in Persian language. How the elder generation was keen

that their children should be conversant with the works of Bhai Nand
Lal can be judged by a letter of Major General (Dr) Jaswant Singh,
Finance member of the Institute of Sikh Studies. He writes, “When in
school I was asked by my father to learn Persian so that I could recite
verses of Bhai Nand Lal to him in his old age. I learnt Persian though
my father died young. Therefore, I was emotionally involved in the
publication of this monumental work.”
We express our deep sense of gratitude to Sardar Pritpal Singh
Bindra the author of the book who with zeal and devotion translated
the complete works of Bhai Nand Lal from Punjabi to English. He
laboured for long time for this pioneering work. English and Punjabi
translations side by side of the complete works of Bhai Nand Lal are
being published for the first time. The author also collected money for
its publication which is commendable.
We are grateful to Prof Gurdial Singh Aarif M.A. (English), Munshi
Fazal (highest degree in Persian) and author of a couple of books in
Urdu poetry. He acceded to my request to go through the entire script
from the language point of view. He diligently worked for line to line
editing and made several corrections. My thanks are due to Sardar
Gurdev Singh, IAS (retd.) who took keen interest in this project and
wrote its foreword, to Dr Kharak Singh for his occasional advice and
guidance and Maj Gen Dr Jaswant Singh for arranging its production,
publication, and diligently going through the typedscript.

Translating poetry from one language to another is extremely
difficult, if not impossible. This is truer when it comes to translating
oriental poetry into a European Language. Subtle meaning of some of
the words has no adequate equivalent as certain expressions defy
description. One example will suffice to make the point: Mother
considered to be a dense shade of the Banyan tree would have to be
spoken of as the sunshine in European context.
English language has its limitations, but in the hands of some one
with love at heart for subtle and fascinating couplets i.e. the Kalaam
rendered by the likes of Bhai Nand Lal Goya, it becomes the language of
poetry. Pritpal Singh Bindra, famous for his book Thus Sayeth Gurbani,
which was received by all with great enthusiasm and won him the coveted
Akali Phoola Singh Award, undertook the challenge and rendered some
of the most fascinating couplets (Kalaam) of one of the court-poets of
Guru Gobind Singh
It proves without doubt that a spark and love for the person
of Bhai Nand Lal and his writings coupled with tremendous reverence
for Guru Gobind Singh and, by his Grace, Sardar Bindra has achieved
the unachievable and rendered the beautiful Ghazals and Couplets of
Bhai Sahib into English. The book will be treasured in the homes of
the Sikhs of the Guru as well as the admirers of the poetry written by
Bhai Sahib.
Sardar Pritpal Singh Bindra has done justice to whatever he
selected for inclusion in this volume. My wish is that he should render
other writings of Bhai Nand Lal into English, which will, perhaps, form
a part of the next edition of Kalaam-e-Goya.

Kalaam-e-Goya, the poetry of Bhai Nand Lal Goya translated
by S. Pritpal Singh Bindra, winner of Akali Phoola Singh Book Award
‘98 is an attempt to help the Sikh Jagat to enjoy the outpourings of the
mystic mind of Bhai Nand Lal who chose to spend the Autumn of his
life in Anandpur Sahib living in close proximity of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
Sixty-one Ghazals Nineteen Rubayaats and a few Baits bring
the readers to perceive the transcendental mind of Bhai Sahib, which
has no boundaries. The metaphoric universe of Ghazals through deautomatised psyche produces wise passiveness, mental silence and
choiceless attention in readers who get wonderstruck at the beatitude
of Goya’s expression.
Bhai Nand Lal takes us to the oceanic stage of relating,
responding and becoming through his Rubaiyaat and urges us to cultivate
our own gardens of love. The language of Bhai Nand Lal’s poetry is
fathomlessly strange, enigmatic and takes us to “the other kind of seeing”.
It helps us to dissolve our ego through I’m.
Dr. S. S. Sodhi, Ph.D.
Halifax, Canada

Outside Guru Granth Sahib, the holy Sikh scripture (consecrated
1604AD), and next to the Epics and Quatrains of Bhai Gurdas (15511637AD), the Kalaam-e-Goya, the poetry of Bhai Nand Lal Goya (16331713AD) is considered to be the most ardent by the celebrated literary
enthusiasts and the lay-zealots. He was a contemporary and the poet laureate
of Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708AD).
His father, Diwan Chhaju Ram, was in the employ of the court of
Prince Dara Shikoh, the eldest son of Emperor Shah Jahan, at the regional
capital of Multan. When Dara Shikoh moved to Ghazni in Afghanistan,
Diwan Chhaju Ram accompanied him and was appointed the chief secretary
of the royal court. Bhai Nand Lal was born there in 1633AD when his
father was just above the age of fifty.
The boy Nand Lal was very brilliant and, apart from good
knowledge of Persian and Arabic languages, he gained an insight into
the temporal and the spiritual values of life. It is said that, when a religious
priest wanted to put a wooden necklace around his neck to initiate him
into the Vaishnav denomination, he refused to acquiesce. He wanted to
gain full religious knowledge before he would consent to the ritual. His
age at the time was seventeen (Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha specifies it as
He was still under twenty when his father died. According to
the custom prevalent, he was offered a job in the royal court, which
was much lower in rank. He wanted to take over his father’s position.
He was dismayed and, after selling all his property there, and collecting
all the money, he moved back to Multan (now in Pakistan), at his parental
Wasif Khan, the Mughal Chief at Multan had been a friend of
his father. He offered him the job of a secretary. Through his hard work
and intellectual capability, he soon took over the administration as the
principal secretary. Some accounts contend that he rose to the position

of Deputy Governor of the Province.
There, he was married to a girl belonging to Sikh religion. he
was very much impressed by the thoughts and the spiritual values depicted
in the verses in Guru Granth Sahib rendered by his wife.
In 1682AD he came on a pilgrimage to Amritsar and from there
he decided to proceed to Anandpur Sahib to seek celestial enlightenment
at the portal of Guru Gobind Singh, the Tenth Master. Aurangzeb had
issued strict orders banning all activities pertaining to art and music. It is
assumed that Bhai Nand Lal moved to Anandpur to escape the
Emperor’s wrath against the literary endeavour in general.
Although Bhai Jee did create exquisite poetry, yet he did not
gain much prominence. A diamond remains obscured, covered in the
dust till it is captured by the vision of a shrewd assayer. When he
presented himself at the Celestial and Temporal Court of Guru Gobind
Singh, he tendered and recited his epic poem Bandgi Nama, An Ode to
Worship. It overwhelmed Guru Jee aesthetically and he wrote a couplet
at the back of the book,
‘Whose cup is filled with nectarous aqua,
‘He gets the epistle of life revealed to him.’
And the name Zindgi Nama, The Epistle of Life, was assigned to
the book.
He did not stay at Anandpur Sahib for a long time. It is said that on
the recommendation of Guru Jee, in about 1678AD, he joined the cerebral
faculty of Prince Muazzam (later Emperor Bahadur Shah) and accompanied
him to the South as his principal secretary.
Emperor Aurangzeb once asked the exposition of a certain Ayat
(Couplet) from the Holy Quran. Various Mohammedan priests
expounded it but the Emperor was not convinced. The interpretation
presented by the Prince seemed very authentic and, on enquiry, the
Emperor learnt that Bhai Nand Lal, a Hindu, had explicated it. he
commented why such a learned and intelligent person had not come in
the folds of Islam as yet. Suspecting Aurangzeb’s motive, he escaped
and came back to Anandpur after about one year. (This could be one

of the points of Aurangzeb’s vengeance on Guru Jee).
Although Guru Jee wanted Bhai Nand Lal to stay there just
contemplating on his literary works, his humility led him to spend most of his
time serving in the Langar, the community kitchen.
He was at Anandpur up to 1705AD when, under the deceitful
promises of the Mughal forces, Guru Jee had to abandon the place. In
the melee that followed, the whole family was scattered. Nothing much
is known about his whereabouts till the death of Emperor Aurangzeb. It
appears that he rejoined his previous master, Prince Muazzam, who
had crowned himself as the Emperor under the name of Bahadur Shah.
It is said that Bhai Nand Lal was instrumental in persuading Mata Sundri
and Mata Sahib Deva to move to Delhi after the upheaval of Anandpur
Sahib. They stayed there till the last days of their lives.
Hari Ram Gupta (History of the Sikhs) maintains that Bhai Nand
Lal was present at the Emperor’s Lohgarh campaign against Banda
Bahadur in 1710. When Bahadur Shah died in 1712 he accompanied
his son Jahandar Shah and came to Delhi. Farukh Siyar assassinated
Jahandar Shah in 1713AD. Bhai Nand Lal, somehow, escaped the
rage of Farukh Siyar and went to Multan. ‘There he opened a school to
impart higher education in Persian and Arabic. he died in 1718AD*. In
1849, on Punjab’s annexation, the British found this school functioning
under the patronage of Nand Lal’s descendants.’
*According to Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha - 1705AD and Dr. Ganda
Singh - 1713AD

And the one imbued with ego, remains detached from the Almighty.(83)

Questions: Bhai Nand Lal Jee
Responses: Guru Gobind Singh Jee
Nand Lal queried, “Guru Jee, enlighten me,
Which deed is ethical and which is not becoming.(1)
Nand Lal, listen to the premise, the Sikh conduct deems this,
Without the celestial name, ablution and benevolence, a Sikh should
not savour the food.(2)
One who does not participate in the true congregation early in the
Will be adjudged as deserving a (religious) retribution.(3)
The one who participates in the true-congregation half-heartedly
Will find shelter nowhere.(4)
While listening to the celestial glories, (one who) starts idle-talks,
Says Gobind Singh, goes to the hell.(5)
Coming across a poor-man, if he does not entertain him,
He obtains the fundamental punishment.(6)
