It is them who bless all these creations and natural beauties with grace and elegance. (269)

ਹਰ ਕਸ ਜ਼ਿ ਸ਼ੌਕਿ ਤੂ ਕਦਮ ਅਜ਼ ਸਰ ਸਾਖ਼ਤ ।
har kas zi shauak too kadam az sar saakhat |

The Naam of Waaheguru is an ornament for His noble and saintly devotees,

ਬਰ ਨਹੁ ਤਬਕ ਚਰਖ਼ਿ ਅਲਮ ਸਰ ਅਫ਼ਰਾਖ਼ਤ ।
bar nahu tabak charakh alam sar afaraakhat |

And, the eye of these nobilities is always full of pearls and gems because of the refulgent glow of the Almighty. (270)

ਸ਼ੁਦ ਆਮਦਨਸ਼ ਮੁਬਾਰਿਕ ਰਫ਼ਤਨ ਹਮ ।
shud aamadanash mubaarik rafatan ham |

Their words are a lessons for a permanent life,

ਗੋਯਾ ਆਣ ਕਸ ਕਿ ਰਾਹਿ ਹੱਕ ਰਾ ਬਿਸ਼ਨਾਖ਼ਤ ।੧।
goyaa aan kas ki raeh hak raa bishanaakhat |1|

And, the memory of Akaalpurakh abides on their lips/tongue for ever. (271)

ਕੂਰ ਅਸਤ ਹਰ ਆਣ ਦੀਦਾ ਕਿ ਹੱਕ ਰਾ ਨਭਸ਼ਨਾਖ਼ਤ ।
koor asat har aan deedaa ki hak raa nabhashanaakhat |

Their utterances have the status of the words of Divine,

ਈਣ ਉਮਰਿ ਗਿਰਾਣ ਮਾਯਾ ਬ-ਗ਼ਫ਼ਲਤ ਦਰਬਾਖ਼ਤ ।
een umar giraan maayaa ba-gafalat darabaakhat |

And, not even one breath of theirs is spent without remembering Him. (272)

ਊ ਗਿਰੀਆਣ ਕੁਨਾਣ ਆਮਦ ਬ-ਹਸਰਤ ਮੁਰਦ ।
aoo gireeaan kunaan aamad ba-hasarat murad |

All these saintly persons are really seekers of a Divine glimpse,

ਅਫ਼ਸੋਸ ਦਰੀਣ ਆਮਦ ਸ਼ੁਦ ਕਾਰੇ ਨਭਸਾਖ਼ਤ ।੨।
afasos dareen aamad shud kaare nabhasaakhat |2|

And, this delightful worldly spread is, in fact, a heavenly flower bed. (273)

ਈਣ ਚਸ਼ਮਿ ਤੂ ਖ਼ਾਨਾ ਦਾਰਿ ਜਾਨਾਨਸਤ ।
een chasham too khaanaa daar jaanaanasat |

Whosoever developed a friendship with the devotees of Waaheguru,

ਈਣ ਤਖ਼ਤਿ ਵਜੂਦਿ ਮਸਨਦਿ ਸੁਲਤਾਨਸਤ ।
een takhat vajood masanad sulataanasat |

Take it that his shadow (on them) will be many times more blessed than the shadow of the feathers of the Humaa bird (It is said that a shadow of Humaa bird can bestow the kingdom of the world). (274)

ਹਰ ਬੂਅਲਹਵਸੇ ਬਸੂਇ ਊ ਰਾਹ ਨ ਬੁਰਦ ।
har booalahavase basooe aoo raah na burad |

We should take it that getting absorbed in Waaheguru's meditation is to give up self-ego,

ਕਿ ਈਣ ਰਾਹ ਤਅੱਲਕਿ ਮੰਜ਼ਲਿ ਮਰਦਾਨਸਤ ।੩।
ki een raah talak manzal maradaanasat |3|

And, not thinking about Him would get us stuck in every other worldly attraction. (275)

ਹਰ ਦਿਲ ਕਿ ਬਰਾਹਿ ਰਾਸਤ ਜਾਨਾਣ ਸ਼ੁਦਾ ਅਸਤ ।
har dil ki baraeh raasat jaanaan shudaa asat |

To redeem ourselves from our egos is the real emancipation,

ਤਹਿਕੀਕ ਬਿਦਾਣ ਕਿ ਐਨਿ ਜਾਨਾਣ ਸ਼ੁਦਾ ਅਸਤ ।
tahikeek bidaan ki aain jaanaan shudaa asat |

And, to tie up our minds with Waaheguru's devotion is also real deliverance. (276)

ਯੱਕ ਜ਼ੱਰਾ ਜ਼ਿ ਫ਼ੈਜ਼ਿ ਰਹਿਮਤਸ਼ ਖ਼ਾਲੀ ਨੀਸਤ ।
yak zaraa zi faiz rahimatash khaalee neesat |

Whosoever has linked and attached his mind to the Almighty,

ਨੱਕਾਸ ਦਰੂਨਿ ਨਕਸ਼ ਪਿਨਹਾਣ ਸ਼ੁਦਾ ਅਸਤ ।੪।
nakaas daroon nakash pinahaan shudaa asat |4|

Take it that he has easily leaped over a sky equipped even with nine locks. (277)

ਈਣ ਆਮਦੋ ਰਫ਼ਤ ਜੁਜ਼ ਦਮੇ ਬੇਸ਼ ਨਬੂਦ ।
een aamado rafat juz dame besh nabood |

The company of such God-attached devotees,

ਹਰ ਜਾ ਕਿ ਨਜ਼ਰ ਕੁਨੇਮ ਜੁਜ਼ ਖ਼ੇਸ਼ ਨਬੂਦ ।
har jaa ki nazar kunem juz khesh nabood |

Take it that it is the cure-all; however, how can we be fortunate enough to obtain it? (278)

ਮਾਣ ਜਾਨਿਬਿ ਗ਼ੈਰ ਚੂੰ ਂਨਿਗਾਹ ਬਿਕੁਨੇਮ ।
maan jaanib gair choon nigaah bikunem |

Both the faith and the religion are amazed,

ਚੂੰ ਗ਼ੈਰ ਤੂ ਹੀਚ ਕਸੇ ਪਸੋ ਪੇਸ਼ ਨਬੂਦ ।੫।
choon gair too heech kase paso pesh nabood |5|

And in this amazement beyond limits they are perplexed. (279)

ਹਰ ਬੰਦਾ ਕੂ ਤਾਲਿਬਿ ਮੌਲਾ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।
har bandaa koo taalib maualaa baashad |

Whosoever imbibes such a chaste and divine desire,

ਦਰ ਹਰ ਦੋ ਜਹਾਣ ਰੁਤਬਾ-ਅੰਸ਼ ਊਲਾ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।
dar har do jahaan rutabaa-ansh aoolaa baashad |

His Guru (teacher) is the master of innate and intrinsic knowledge. (280)

ਗੋਯਾ ਦੋ ਜਹਾਣ ਰਾ ਬ-ਜੌਏ ਬਿ-ਸਤਾਨੰਦ ।
goyaa do jahaan raa ba-jaue bi-sataanand |

God connected noble saints can make your connection with Him,

ਮਜਨੂੰਨਿ ਤੂ ਕੈ ਆਸ਼ਕਿ ਲੈਲਾ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।੬।
majanoon too kai aashak lailaa baashad |6|

They can also help you to obtain the eternal treasure, the Naam. (281)

ਦਰ ਦਹਿਰ ਕਿ ਮਰਦਾਨਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਆਮਦਾ ਅੰਦ ।
dar dahir ki maradaan khudaa aamadaa and |

This is an immortal achievement for an enlightened person,

ਬਰ ਗ਼ੁਮ-ਸ਼ੁਦਗਾਨਿ ਰਹਿਨੁਮਾ ਆਮਦਾ ਅੰਦ ।
bar guma-shudagaan rahinumaa aamadaa and |

This adage is commonly well known, and everyone is well acquainted with it. (282)

ਗੋਯਾ ਅਗਰ ਈਂ ਚਸ਼ਮਿ ਤੂ ਮੁਸ਼ਤਾਕਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਅਸਤ ।
goyaa agar een chasham too mushataak khudaa asat |

The enlightened, perfect and submerged into the love of God devotees;

ਮਰਦਾਨਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ-ਨੁਮਾ ਆਮਦਾ ਅੰਦ ।੭।
maradaan khudaa khudaa-numaa aamadaa and |7|

They always have His Naam on their tongues and lips in meditation. (283)

ਦਰ ਮਜ਼ਹਬਿ ਮਾ ਗ਼ੈਰ-ਪਰਸਤੀ ਨ ਕੁਨੰਦ ।
dar mazahab maa gaira-parasatee na kunand |

To continually meditate on His Naam is their worship;

ਸਰ ਤਾ ਬਕਦਮ ਬਹੋਸ਼ ਓ ਮਸਤੀ ਨ ਕੁਨੰਦ ।
sar taa bakadam bahosh o masatee na kunand |

And, the eternal treasure blessed by Akaalpurakh directs one towards His path. (284)

ਗ਼ਾਫ਼ਲਿ ਨਸ਼ਵੰਦ ਯਕ ਦਮ ਅਜ਼ ਯਾਦਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ।
gaafal nashavand yak dam az yaad khudaa |

When the divine eternal treasure shows Its face,

ਦੀਗਰ ਸੁਖ਼ਨ ਅਜ਼ ਬੁਲੰਦੋ ਪਸਤੀ ਨ ਕੁਨੰਦ ।੮।
deegar sukhan az bulando pasatee na kunand |8|

You would then belong to Waaheguru and He would belong to you. (285)

ਯੱਕ ਜ਼ੱਰਾ ਅਗਰ ਸ਼ੌਕਿ ਇਲਾਹੀ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।
yak zaraa agar shauak ilaahee baashad |

If the shadow of Akaalpurakh falls on someone's heart and soul,

ਬਿਹਤਰ ਕਿ ਹਜ਼ਾਰ ਬਾਦਸ਼ਾਹੀ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।
bihatar ki hazaar baadashaahee baashad |

Then take it that the painful thorn of separation has been extracted out of the foot (depth) of our mind. (286)

ਗੋਯਾ-ਸਤ ਗ਼ੁਲਾਮਿ ਮੁਰਸ਼ਦਿ ਖ਼ੇਸ਼ ।
goyaa-sat gulaam murashad khesh |

When the thorn of separation has been removed from the feet of the heart,

ਈਣ ਖ਼ਤ ਨ ਮੁਹਤਾਜਿ ਗਵਾਹੀ ਬਾਸ਼ਦ ।੯।
een khat na muhataaj gavaahee baashad |9|

Take it then that the Akaalpurakh has made the temple of our heart as His abode. (287)

ਹਰ ਕਸ ਬ-ਜਹਾ ਨਸ਼ਵੋ ਨੁਮਾ ਮੀ ਖ਼ਾਹਦ ।
har kas ba-jahaa nashavo numaa mee khaahad |

Like that drop of water that fell into a river or ocean, giving up its own identity (showing humility),

ਅਸਪੋ ਸ਼ੁਤਰੋ ਫ਼ੀਲੋ ਤਿਲਾ ਮੀ ਖ਼ਾਹਦ ।
asapo shutaro feelo tilaa mee khaahad |

It itself became the river and the ocean; (thus falling on the feet of Aakaalpurakh), and convergence with Him took place. (288)

ਹਰ ਕਸ ਜ਼ਿ ਬਰਾਇ ਖ਼ੇਸ਼ ਚੀਜ਼ੇ ਮੀ ਖ਼ਾਹਦ ।
har kas zi baraae khesh cheeze mee khaahad |

Once the drop merges into the ocean,

ਗੋਯਾ ਜ਼ਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਯਾਦਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਮੀ ਖ਼ਾਹਦ ।੧੦।
goyaa zi khudaa yaad khudaa mee khaahad |10|

After that, it cannot be separated from the ocean. (289)

ਪੁਰ ਗਸ਼ਤਾ ਜ਼ਿ ਸਰ ਤਾ ਬ-ਕਦਮ ਨੂਰ-ਉਲ-ਨੂਰ ।
pur gashataa zi sar taa ba-kadam noor-aula-noor |

When the drop started to rush in the direction of the ocean,

ਆਈਨਾ ਕਿ ਦਰ ਵੈਨ ਬਵਦ ਹੀਚ ਕਸੂਰ ।
aaeenaa ki dar vain bavad heech kasoor |

It, then, realized the significance of being just a drop of water. (290)

ਤਹਿਕੀਕ ਬਿਦਾਣ ਜ਼ਿ ਗ਼ਾਫ਼ਿਲਾਣ ਦੂਰ ਬਵਦ ।
tahikeek bidaan zi gaafilaan door bavad |

When the drop was bestowed with this eternal meeting,

ਊ ਦਰ ਦਿਲਿ ਆਰਿਫ਼ ਕਰਦਾ ਜ਼ਹੂਰ ।੧੧।
aoo dar dil aarif karadaa zahoor |11|

The reality dawned on it, and its long-cherished desire was fulfilled. (291)

ਈਣ ਉਮਰਿ ਗਿਰਾਣ-ਮਾਯਾ ਕਿ ਬਰਬਾਦ ਸ਼ਵਦ ।
een umar giraana-maayaa ki barabaad shavad |

The droplet said, "Even though I am a small drop of water, I have been able to measure the expanse of this huge ocean." (292)

ਈਣ ਖ਼ਾਨਾਇ ਵੀਰਾਣ ਬ-ਚਿਹ ਆਬਾਦ ਸ਼ਵਦ ।
een khaanaae veeraan ba-chih aabaad shavad |

If the ocean, out of its extreme kindness, would agree to take me in,

ਤਾ ਮੁਰਸ਼ਦਿ ਕਾਮਿਲ ਨਦਿਹਦ ਦਸਤ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ।
taa murashad kaamil nadihad dasat braham |

And, it agreed to merge me into itself even beyond its capacity; (293)

ਗੋਯਾ ਦਿਲਿ ਗ਼ਮਗੀਨ ਤੂ ਚੂੰ ਸ਼ਾਦ ਬਵਦ ।੧੨।
goyaa dil gamageen too choon shaad bavad |12|

And, it rose like a tidal wave out of the span of the ocean,

ਦਿਲਿ ਜ਼ਾਲਮਿ ਬ-ਕਸਦਿ ਕੁਸ਼ਤਨਿ ਮਾ-ਸਤ ।
dil zaalam ba-kasad kushatan maa-sat |

It became another wave, and then bowed in reverence to the ocean. (294)

ਦਿਲਿ ਮਜ਼ਲੂਮਿ ਮਨ ਬਸੂਇ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਸਤ ।
dil mazaloom man basooe khudaa sat |

In the same manner, every such person who had a confluence with the Almighty,

ਊ ਦਰੀਣ ਫ਼ਿਕਰ ਤਾਣ ਬਮਾ ਚਿਹ ਕੁਨਦ ।
aoo dareen fikar taan bamaa chih kunad |

Became complete and perfect on the path of meditation. (295)

ਮਾ ਦਰੀਣ ਫ਼ਿਕਰ ਤਾ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਚਿਹ ਕੁਨਦ ।੧੩।
maa dareen fikar taa khudaa chih kunad |13|

In reality, a wave and the ocean are one and the same,

ਦਰ ਹਾਸਿਲਿ ਉਮਰ ਆਣ ਚਿਹ ਮਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾ ਏਮ ।
dar haasil umar aan chih maa yaafataa em |

But still there is a vast difference between them. (296)

ਦਰ ਹਰ ਦੋ-ਜਹਾਣ ਯਾਦਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾ ਏਮ ।
dar har do-jahaan yaad khudaa yaafataa em |

I am just a simple wave, while you are an enormously large ocean,

ਈਣ ਹਸਤੀਏ ਖ਼ੇਸ਼ਤਨ ਬਲਾ ਬੂਦ ਅਜ਼ੀਮ ।
een hasatee kheshatan balaa bood azeem |

Thus, there is a big difference between you and me like that between the earth and the sky. (297)

ਅਜ਼ ਖ਼ੇਸ਼ ਗੁਜ਼ਸ਼ਤੇਮ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾ ਏਮ ।੧੪।
az khesh guzashatem khudaa yaafataa em |14|

I am nothing; all this (that I am) is only because of your blessings,

ਅਜ਼ ਖ਼ਾਕਿ ਦਰਿ ਤੂ ਤੂਤੀਆ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।
az khaak dar too tooteea yaafataaem |

I am, too, one wave in Your vast manifest world. (298)

ਕਜ਼ ਦੌਲਤਿ ਆਣ ਨਸ਼ਵੋ ਨੁਮਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।
kaz daualat aan nashavo numaa yaafataaem |

You would need the association with the noble persons,

ਮਾ ਸਿਜਦਾ ਬਰ ਰੂਇ ਗ਼ੈਰ ਦੀਗਰ ਨਭਕੁਨੇਮ ।
maa sijadaa bar rooe gair deegar nabhakunem |

This will be the first and the foremost thing that you will need. (299)

ਦਰ ਖ਼ਾਨਾਇ ਦਿਲ ਨਕਸ਼ਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।੧੫।
dar khaanaae dil nakash khudaa yaafataaem |15|

That perfect and complete Creator is visible through His own creations,

ਗੋਯਾ ਖ਼ਬਰ ਅਜ਼ ਯਾਦਿ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।
goyaa khabar az yaad khudaa yaafataaem |

The Creator, in fact, abides amidst His own Nature and manifestations. (300)

ਈਣ ਜਾਮਿ ਲਬਾ-ਲਬ ਅਜ਼ ਕੁਜਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।
een jaam labaa-lab az kujaa yaafataaem |

The Creator and His creations are one and the same,

ਜੁਜ਼ ਤਾਲਿਬਿ ਹੱਕ ਨਸੀਬਿ ਹਰ ਕਸ ਨ ਬਵਦ ।
juz taalib hak naseeb har kas na bavad |

They, the noble persons, renounce all material distractions except the Provident. (301)

ਈਣ ਦੌਲਤਿ ਨਾਯਾਬ ਕਿ ਮਾ ਯਾਫ਼ਤਾਏਮ ।੧੬।
een daualat naayaab ki maa yaafataaem |16|

O my dear friend! Then you should also make a judgement and conclude,

ਗੋਯਾ ਤਾ ਕੈ ਦਰੀਣ ਸਰਾਏ ਮਾਦੂਅਮ ।
goyaa taa kai dareen saraae maadooam |

As to who is God, and who you are, and how to distinguish between the two. (302)

ਗਾਹੇ ਲਾਜ਼ਮ ਸ਼ਵਦ ਵ ਗਾਹੇ ਮਲਜ਼ੂਮ ।
gaahe laazam shavad v gaahe malazoom |

If, in your pursuits, you happen to have a meeting with the Akaalpurakh.

ਤਾ ਕੈ ਚੂ ਸਗਾਣ ਬਰ ਉਸਤਖ਼ਾਣ ਜੰਗ ਕੁਨੇਮ ।
taa kai choo sagaan bar usatakhaan jang kunem |

Then you should not utter any other word except the word of worship and meditation. (303)

ਦੁਨਿਆ ਮਾਲੂਅਮ ਅਹਿਲਿ ਦੁਨਿਆ ਮਾਲੂਅਮ ।੧੭।
duniaa maalooam ahil duniaa maalooam |17|

All this tangible and non-tangible boons are because of the meditation,

ਗੋਯਾ ਅਗਰ ਆਣ ਜਮਾਲ ਦੀਦਨ ਦਾਰੀ ।
goyaa agar aan jamaal deedan daaree |

Without meditation, this life of ours is only mortification and humiliation. (304)

ਅਜ਼ ਖ਼ੁਦ ਹਵਸ ਮੈਲਿ ਰਮੀਦਨ ਦਾਰੀ ।
az khud havas mail rameedan daaree |

The Almighty God has also said,

ਜ਼ੀਣ ਦੀਦਾ ਮਬੀਣ ਕਿ ਹਜ਼ਾਬ ਸਤ ਤੁਰਾ ।
zeen deedaa mabeen ki hazaab sat turaa |

Anyone who transformed himself into a man of God is redeemed." (305) Anyone who proclaimed through his own mouth that he was God, The Islamic religious law crucified him just like Mansoor. (306) Inebriated with God is, in fact, to be always in a state of alertness, Even dreaming while asleep for the knowledgeable is indeed like staying awake. (307) In reality, a disrespectful faces the consequences (reaps the fruits) of his own actions, Because, it is the 'respect' and 'civility' that is capable of showing all the direction of the right path. (308) If you have transformed yourself from head to toe into Akaalpurakh's form, And, If you have merged into that unparalleled and matchless Waaheguru, (309) Then you should adopt the path of meditation, And, become His (favorite) person by holding on to the divine spiritual passage of meditation. (310) One should assume His presence under all circumstances, Considering Him Omnipresent and Immanent, and also take it that He is capable of seeing everything everywhere. (311) There is no education except that of respect and civility in the path of God, It is not prudent for His seeker-devotee to accept anything but His Order. (312) The seekers of the Divine Spirit are always respectful, They are also satiated with reverence while remembering Him. (313) What does an apostate know about the tradition of those noble persons? The efforts of an atheist to get a glimpse of Akaalpurakh will always be ineffective. (314) A disrespectful can never find the path leading towards the Divine Spirit; No strayed person has ever been able to find the path of God and much less to reach Him. (315) It is reverence that is the guide to the path of Waaheguru; And, an atheist remains blank from receiving His blessings. (316) How can an atheist find the way to the Almighty, Who has been condemned due to the anger of Waaheguru?(317) If you care to seek the shelter (and agree to function in their shadow) of the noble souls of God, You will receive teachings and instructions about respectability there. (318) Coming to this place (of noble persons), even the apostates become capable to teach lessons of reverence, Here, even extinguished lamps begin to spread light throughout the world. (319) O Akaalpurakh! Kindly bestow reverence even on the irreverent, So that they can spend their lives in Your remembrance. (320) If you can relish the savor (sweet taste) of Waaheguru's remembrance, Then O good man! You can become immortal. (321) Consider this body of dirt as permanent for this reason Because the devotion for Him have established permanently in the fortress of your heart. (322) The love and elation for Akaalpurakh are the life-line of the soul, There is a wealth of faith and religion in His memory. (323) How can the euphoria and elation for Waaheguru abide in every heart, And, how can He take refuge in the body made up of dirt. (324) When your fondness for Akaalpurakh supported you, Then, take it for granted that you will obtain control and have the divine eternal wealth. (325) The dust of His path is like a collyrium for our eyes and head, This dust is much more valuable than the crown and the thrones for the enlightened. (326) This worldly wealth is not ever lasting, You should accept this according to the verdict of the true devotees of God. (327) Meditation of Waaheguru is always absolutely essential for you, And, the discourse about Him makes you steady and immovable forever. (328) The devotees of Akaalpurakh are intimately connected to the divine knowledge, And, the achievement of divine knowledge is completely absorbed inside their souls. (329) The throne of devotion for Akaalpurakh is permanent and indestructible, Although every peak has a trough. (330) The marvel of the zest for God's love is eternal and non-destructible, Wish were it that we can get just one particle of His devotion. (331) Whosoever is lucky enough to obtain such a particle, he becomes immortal, In reality, his desire (to meet with Akaalpurakh) is fulfilled. (332) When he reached the stage of fulfillment, That particle of the strong desire for His devotion gets seeded into his heart. (333) The divine nectar oozes out of his every hair, And the whole world, with his aroma, becomes alive and rises up. (334) Fortunate is that person who has attained the Provident; And, who has turned himself away (detached) from every worldly items except the memory of God. (335) Even while living in worldly guise, he is detached from every materialistic thing, Like the Entity of God, he maintains a hidden profile. (336) Outwardly he might be appearing to be in the grip of a fistful of dust, Inwardly, he is always engaged in talking about the chaste Akaalpurakh and abides with Him. (337) Outwardly, he might appear to be immersed in love for his child and wife, In reality, he always abides (in thought and action) with his God. (338) Outwardly, he might seem to be inclined towards 'desires and greed', But inwardly, he remains chaste and sacred in the memory of Waaheguru. (339) Outwardly, he might appear to be paying attention to horses and camels, But inwardly, he remains detached from the worldly hub-hub and noises. (340) He might appear to be involved in gold and silver outwardly, But he is, in fact, master of land and water inwardly. (341) His intrinsic worth gets revealed slowly and gradually, In fact, he becomes a casket of fragrance. (342) His internal and external selves become one and the same, Both the worlds become followers of his command. (343) His heart and tongue are completely immersed in Akaalpurkh's remembrance at all times and for ever, His tongue becomes his heart, and his heart his tongue. (344) Those saintly souls who have converged with God have said clearly, That persons of God remain comfortable and happy while they are in meditation." (345)

ਬੇ-ਦੀਦਾ ਬਿਬੀਣ ਹਰ ਆਣ ਚਿਹ ਦੀਦਨ ਦਾਰੀ ।੧੮।
be-deedaa bibeen har aan chih deedan daaree |18|

The mastery and splendor of our True King, the Waaheguru, is well known,

ਮੌਜੂਦ ਖ਼ੁਦਾਸਤ ਤੂ ਕਿਰਾ ਮੀ ਜੋਈ ।
mauajood khudaasat too kiraa mee joee |

I bow before the pedestrian who is walking on this path. (346)

ਮਕਸੂਦ ਖ਼ੁਦਾਸਤ ਤੂ ਕੁਜਾ ਮੀ ਪੋਈ ।
makasood khudaasat too kujaa mee poee |

The traveler on this path arrived at his destination,

ਈਣ ਹਰ ਦੋ ਜਹਾਣ ਨਿਸ਼ਾਨਿ ਦੌਲਤਿ ਤੁਸਤ ।
een har do jahaan nishaan daualat tusat |

And, his heart became familiar with the real purpose and attainment of life. (347)

ਯਾਅਨੀ ਸੁਖ਼ਨ ਅਜ਼ ਜ਼ਬਾਨਿ ਹੱਕ ਮੀ ਗੋਈ ।੧੯।
yaanee sukhan az zabaan hak mee goee |19|

Persons of God really need only His meditation,
