Kirtan Sohila celebrates the bliss of union with the Divine and laments the pain of separation. It tunes you into the protection of the Earth element and removes negativity from your environment to give you peaceful, healing sleep.
Recite it at night before bed, following a death, or before cremation.
Kirtan Sohila is made up of five Shabads. The first three Shabads were uttered by Guru Nanak, the fourth by Guru Ram Das, and the fifth by Guru Arjan Dev.
