Raamkalee, First Mehl, Sidh Gosht ~ Conversations With The Siddhas:
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
The Siddhas formed an assembly; sitting in their Yogic postures, they shouted, "Salute this gathering of Saints."
I offer my salutation to the One who is true, infinite and incomparably beautiful.
I cut off my head, and offer it to Him; I dedicate my body and mind to Him.
O Nanak, meeting with the Saints, Truth is obtained, and one is spontaneously blessed with distinction. ||1||
What is the use of wandering around? Purity comes only through Truth.
Without the True Word of the Shabad, no one finds liberation. ||1||Pause||
Who are you? What is your name? What is your way? What is your goal?
We pray that you will answer us truthfully; we are a sacrifice to the humble Saints.
Where is your seat? Where do you live, boy? Where did you come from, and where are you going?
Tell us, Nanak - the detached Siddhas wait to hear your reply. What is your path?" ||2||
He dwells deep within the nucleus of each and every heart. This is my seat and my home. I walk in harmony with the Will of the True Guru.
I came from the Celestial Lord God; I go wherever He orders me to go. I am Nanak, forever under the Command of His Will.
I sit in the posture of the eternal, imperishable Lord. These are the Teachings I have received from the Guru.
As Gurmukh, I have come to understand and realize myself; I merge in the Truest of the True. ||3||
"The world-ocean is treacherous and impassable; how can one cross over?"
Charpat the Yogi says, "O Nanak, think it over, and give us your true reply."
What answer can I give to someone, who claims to understand himself?
I speak the Truth; if you have already crossed over, how can I argue with you? ||4||
