Bhagat Trilochan Ji -Bhagat of Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

Personal Details:

Life span 1269 - 1335 A.D.
Birth place: Village Barsi, District Sholapur in Maharashtra.

Born in Vaish Caste.

He had already heard about Bhagat Namdev Ji. In his very first meeting he requested Bhagat Namdev Ji to give him a glimpse of the Almightly. Bhagat Namdev Ji replied ,"You shall also have a glimpse of the Almightly if you contemplate on Him with devotion while working with your limbs simultaneously." Namdev Ji also pleaded to the Almightly to fulfill Trilochon's requests.


Bhagat Trilochan Ji decided to accept Namdev Ji as his Guru. Trilochan Ji came back to his village and started serving every mendicant who came that way. The company of the Holy men liberated him of desire for worldly materials and the fear of death.

Time passed away and Bhagat Trilochan Ji beacame very famous among the saints. A group of saints would always remain present at his place.He always served the saints at his residence with the utmost dedication and humanity. Bhagat Trilochan Ji always gave more importance to Bhakti (love & devotion) in preference to selfish interests. He said that he who is always occupied with problems relating to wealth and property will never become happy. As the number of visiting saints kept on increasing it became difficult of Bhagat Trilochan Ji's wife to do the household work. So she asked Bhagat ji to have a servant who could help in the household work.

When Bhagat Ji was about to leave home to search a worker who could help in the household work a boy appeared at the door of his house. Upon inquiring the child told Bhagat Ji that his name was 'Antarjami'. Bhagat Ji introduced Antarjami to his wife and told her to explain him his work and also said that feed him to his satisfaction and don't talk about him and his habits with the people. Time went on and an year passed. Every body was happy by the service of Antarjami.

One day Trilochan Ji's wife was talking with her neighbor. Her neighbor asked her why she was looking pale and weak because she was a very radiant lady. She started telling her neighbor about the Antarjami, about his eating habit. She said, "I'm unable to cope up with his meals. He eats a lot. Her neighbor suggested her to replace the servant with someone else.

Antarjami was the manifestation of the God Himself. He came to knew of the conversation between Bhagat Ji's wife and her neighbor. So he left the home as the wife had violated the condition on which Antarjami had agreed to work in Bhagat Ji's home. When Trilochan Ji's wife returned after having a nice chatting. She was shocked to find the house unattended and servant missing.

Trilochan Ji asked her wife about him but she wasn't able give any satisfactory reply. One day Trilocan Ji were sleeping, voice cried, "Hey Trilochan your servant, Antarjami was indeed a 'antarjami', the Almightly himselfe. He came to you on the recommendations of Bhagat Namdev Ji." Trilochan Ji became very upset. His wife cried that she had made a mistake because the Almighty has not made her a mother. She said, "If I had not been childless, I would not have cared about old age reserves and hadn't chased away Antarjami." She started complaining the Almighty.

On this Bhagat Ji told her not to complain the God because what all you have got is the result of your past deeds. He explained her by the giving the example of Hanuman. He had fought for Ram Ji, brought the Sanjivani plant for Laxman Ji but still the curse of stealing saints clothes remained. Past deeds cannot be erased from anyone's log book. You have sown a seed you are bound to get the fruits.

His hymns in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji:

In Dhanaasaree Rag.

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
Why do you slander the Lord? You are ignorant and deluded.
Pain and pleasure are the result of your own actions.||1|Pause||

The moon dwells in Shiva's forehead; it takes its deansing bath in the Ganges.
Among the men of the moon's family, Krishna was born;
even so, the stains from its past actions remain on the moon's face.||1||

Aruna was a charioteer; his master was the sun, the lamp of the world. His brother was Garuda, the king of birds;
and yet, Aruna was made a cripple, because of the karma of his past actions.||2||

Shiva, the destroyer of the countless sins, the Lord and Master of the three worlds, wandered from sacred shrine to sacred shrine; he never found and end to them.
And yet, he could not erase the karma of cutting off Brahman's head.||3||

Through the nectar, the moon, the wish-fulfilling cow, Lakshmi, the miraculous tree of life, Sikhar the sun's horse, and Dhanavantar the wise physician- all arose from the ocean, the lord of rivers;
and yet, because of its karma, its saltiness has not left it.||4||

Hanuman burnt the fortress of Sri Lanka, uprooted the garden of Raavan, and brought
healing herbs for the wounds of Laxman, pleasing Lord Raamaa;
and yet, because of his karma, he could not be rid of his loin cloth.||5||

The karma of past actions cannot be erased, O wife of my house; this is why I chant
the Name of the Lord.

So prays Trilochan, Dear Lord.||6||1||
(SGGS 695)


Goojaree, Paday Of Trilochan Jee, First House:
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
You have not cleansed the filth from within yourself, although outwardly, you wear the dress of a renunciate.
In the heart-lotus of your self, you have not recognized God - why have you become a Sannyaasee? ||1||

Deluded by doubt, O Jai Chand,
you have not realized the Lord, the embodiment of supreme bliss. ||1||Pause||
You eat in each and every house, fattening your body; you wear the patched coat and the ear-rings of the beggar, for the sake of wealth.
You apply the ashes of cremation to your body, but without a Guru, you have not found the essence of reality. ||2||

Why bother to chant your spells? Why bother to practice austerities? Why bother to churn water?
Meditate on the Lord of Nirvaanaa, who has created the 8.4 million species of beings. ||3||

Why bother to carry the water-pot, O saffron-robed Yogi? Why bother to visit the sixty-eight holy places of pilgrimage?
Says Trilochan, listen, mortal: you have no corn - what are you trying to thresh? ||4||1||
(SGGS 525)


Siree Raag, Trilochan:
The mind is totally attached to Maya; the mortal has forgotten his fear of old age and death.
Gazing upon his family, he blossoms forth like the lotus flower; the deceitful person watches and covets the homes of others. ||1||
When the powerful Messenger of Death comes, no one can stand against his awesome power.
Rare, very rare, is that friend who comes and says,
"O my Beloved, take me into Your Embrace! O my Lord, please save me!"||1||Pause||

Indulging in all sorts of princely pleasures, O mortal, you have forgotten God; you have fallen into the world-ocean, and you think that you have become immortal.
Cheated and plundered by Maya, you do not think of God, and you waste your life in laziness. ||2||

The path you must walk is treacherous and terrifying, O mortal; neither the sun nor the moon shine there.
Your emotional attachment to Maya will be forgotten, when you have to leave this world. ||3||

Today, it became clear to my mind that the Righteous Judge of Dharma is watching us.
His messengers, with their awesome power, crush people between their hands; I cannot stand against them. ||4||

If someone is going to teach me something, let it be that the Lord is pervading the forests and fields.
O Dear Lord, You Yourself know everything; so prays Trilochan, Lord. ||5||2||
(SGGS 92)


Goojaree:
At the very last moment, one who thinks of wealth, and dies in such thoughts,
shall be reincarnated over and over again, in the form of serpents. ||1||
O sister, do not forget the Name of the Lord of the Universe. ||Pause||

At the very last moment, he who thinks of women, and dies in such thoughts,
shall be reincarnated over and over again as a prostitute. ||2||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of his children, and dies in such thoughts,
shall be reincarnated over and over again as a pig. ||3||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of mansions, and dies in such thoughts,
shall be reincarnated over and over again as a goblin. ||4||

At the very last moment, one who thinks of the Lord, and dies in such thoughts,
says Trilochan, that man shall be liberated; the Lord shall abide in his heart. ||5||2||
(SGGS 526)

Thus, he advises mankind not to remain engrossed throughout life in wealth, woman, son & land lest one should have all or any of these in one's consciousness all the time and especially at one's death. Mankind should perform their filial and social obligation in such a way that they never become forgetful of God. This will help them concentrate on the Divine Name as their end draws near. Only this can put an end to the process of their transmigration. The essence of the above hymn by Trilochan ji is to make a person aware of these aweful species which could become their fate. Thus, every individual is exhorted to remember the Lord which is the only means of diverting mankind's sensibilities, given to sensuous pleasure & material comfort, towards the pious Name of God. This reminds human creature of the ultimate objective of life, i.e, remembrance of God always.
