Gateway to the Soul: Asa Di Var
Gateway to the Soul is a series of Sikh prayers originally composed in Gurmukhi, recited in English by Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa, with musical accompaniment. Listen to them to open your heart, steady your mind and connect you with your Infinite Consciousness. Asa Di Var has been sung in the early morning since the time of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. Traditionally, Asa Di Var is sung as folk music is sung, as an ode or ballad. It is a heroic composition. It covers all the human aspects in the face of challenges with wisdom and elevating self-spiritual experiences. It gives confidence and exhaltation and makes life meaningful and creative. Although the greatest benefit of Asa Di Var is through recitation in the original Gurmukhi, Gateway to the Soul gives you the powerful effects of Asa Di Var in English translation, with musical accompaniment, so you can enjoy it's subtle beauty.
