Aasa Ki Vaar

A vaar is a popular style of Punjabi poetry that generally depicts the exploits of a folk hero and showers praise on him. Guru Nanak composed Aasa ki Vaar in praise of God, the Guru and Nam. The text also emphasizes strong ethical commitments and openly repudiates rituals, the caste system and slavish customs. Aasa ki Vaar describes ego as a chronic malady, but assures us at the same time that God has also incorporated the remedy into the system - the practice of the Guru's Shabd that destroys ego and opens the door to liberation.
