ਸਚੈ ਊਪਰਿ ਅਵਰ ਨ ਦੀਸੈ ਸਾਚੇ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੮॥
sachai aoopar avar na deesai saache keemat paaee he |8|

I cannot see any other above the True Lord. The True Lord does the appraisal. ||8||

ਐਥੈ ਗੋਇਲੜਾ ਦਿਨ ਚਾਰੇ ॥
aaithai goeilarraa din chaare |

In this green pasture, the mortal stays only a few days.

ਖੇਲੁ ਤਮਾਸਾ ਧੁੰਧੂਕਾਰੇ ॥
khel tamaasaa dhundhookaare |

He plays and frolics in utter darkness.

ਬਾਜੀ ਖੇਲਿ ਗਏ ਬਾਜੀਗਰ ਜਿਉ ਨਿਸਿ ਸੁਪਨੈ ਭਖਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੯॥
baajee khel ge baajeegar jiau nis supanai bhakhalaaee he |9|

The jugglers have staged their show, and left, like people mumbling in a dream. ||9||

ਤਿਨ ਕਉ ਤਖਤਿ ਮਿਲੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥
tin kau takhat milee vaddiaaee |

They alone are blessed with glorious greatness at the Lord's throne,

ਨਿਰਭਉ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥
nirbhau man vasiaa liv laaee |

who enshrine the fearless Lord in their minds, and lovingly center themselves on Him.

ਖੰਡੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੰਡੀ ਪਾਤਾਲੀ ਪੁਰੀਈ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਤਾੜੀ ਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੦॥
khanddee brahamanddee paataalee pureeee tribhavan taarree laaee he |10|

In the galaxies and solar systems, nether regions, celestial realms and the three worlds, the Lord is in the primal void of deep absorption. ||10||

ਸਾਚੀ ਨਗਰੀ ਤਖਤੁ ਸਚਾਵਾ ॥
saachee nagaree takhat sachaavaa |

True is the village, and true is the throne,

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
guramukh saach milai sukh paavaa |

of those Gurmukhs who meet with the True Lord, and find peace.

ਸਾਚੇ ਸਾਚੈ ਤਖਤਿ ਵਡਾਈ ਹਉਮੈ ਗਣਤ ਗਵਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੧॥
saache saachai takhat vaddaaee haumai ganat gavaaee he |11|

In Truth, seated upon the true throne, they are blessed with glorious greatness; their egotism is eradicated, along with the calculation of their account. ||11||

ਗਣਤ ਗਣੀਐ ਸਹਸਾ ਜੀਐ ॥
ganat ganeeai sahasaa jeeai |

Calculating its account, the soul becomes anxious.

ਕਿਉ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵੈ ਦੂਐ ਤੀਐ ॥
kiau sukh paavai dooaai teeai |

How can one find peace, through duality and the three gunas - the three qualities?

ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਏਕੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਦਾਤਾ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਤੇ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੨॥
niramal ek niranjan daataa gur poore te pat paaee he |12|

The One Lord is immaculate and formless, the Great Giver; through the Perfect Guru, honor is obtained. ||12||

ਜੁਗਿ ਜੁਗਿ ਵਿਰਲੀ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਤਾ ॥
jug jug viralee guramukh jaataa |

In each and every age, very rare are those who, as Gurmukh, realize the Lord.

ਸਾਚਾ ਰਵਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਮਨੁ ਰਾਤਾ ॥
saachaa rav rahiaa man raataa |

Their minds are imbued with the True, all-pervading Lord.

ਤਿਸ ਕੀ ਓਟ ਗਹੀ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਮਨਿ ਤਨਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਕਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੩॥
tis kee ott gahee sukh paaeaa man tan mail na kaaee he |13|

Seeking His Shelter, they find peace, and their minds and bodies are not stained with filth. ||13||

ਜੀਭ ਰਸਾਇਣਿ ਸਾਚੈ ਰਾਤੀ ॥
jeebh rasaaein saachai raatee |

Their tongues are imbued with the True Lord, the source of nectar;

ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸੰਗੀ ਭਉ ਨ ਭਰਾਤੀ ॥
har prabh sangee bhau na bharaatee |

abiding with the Lord God, they have no fear or doubt.

ਸ੍ਰਵਣ ਸ੍ਰੋਤ ਰਜੇ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਜੋਤੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਮਿਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੪॥
sravan srot raje gurabaanee jotee jot milaaee he |14|

Hearing the Word of the Guru's Bani, their ears are satisfied, and their light merges into the Light. ||14||

ਰਖਿ ਰਖਿ ਪੈਰ ਧਰੇ ਪਉ ਧਰਣਾ ॥
rakh rakh pair dhare pau dharanaa |

Carefully, carefully, I place my feet upon the ground.

ਜਤ ਕਤ ਦੇਖਉ ਤੇਰੀ ਸਰਣਾ ॥
jat kat dekhau teree saranaa |

Wherever I go, I behold Your Sanctuary.

ਦੁਖੁ ਸੁਖੁ ਦੇਹਿ ਤੂਹੈ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵਹਿ ਤੁਝ ਹੀ ਸਿਉ ਬਣਿ ਆਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੫॥
dukh sukh dehi toohai man bhaaveh tujh hee siau ban aaee he |15|

Whether You grant me pain or pleasure, You are pleasing to my mind. I am in harmony with You. ||15||

ਅੰਤ ਕਾਲਿ ਕੋ ਬੇਲੀ ਨਾਹੀ ॥
ant kaal ko belee naahee |

No one is anyone's companion or helper at the very last moment;

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਤਾ ਤੁਧੁ ਸਾਲਾਹੀ ॥
guramukh jaataa tudh saalaahee |

as Gurmukh, I realize You and praise You.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮਿ ਰਤੇ ਬੈਰਾਗੀ ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਤਾੜੀ ਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੬॥੩॥
naanak naam rate bairaagee nij ghar taarree laaee he |16|3|

O Nanak, imbued with the Naam, I am detached; in the home of my own self deep within, I am absorbed in the primal void of deep meditation. ||16||3||

ਮਾਰੂ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
maaroo mahalaa 1 |

Maaroo, First Mehl:

ਆਦਿ ਜੁਗਾਦੀ ਅਪਰ ਅਪਾਰੇ ॥
aad jugaadee apar apaare |

From the very beginning of time, and throughout the ages, You are infinite and incomparable.

ਆਦਿ ਨਿਰੰਜਨ ਖਸਮ ਹਮਾਰੇ ॥
aad niranjan khasam hamaare |

You are my primal, immaculate Lord and Master.

ਸਾਚੇ ਜੋਗ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਸਾਚੇ ਤਾੜੀ ਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧॥
saache jog jugat veechaaree saache taarree laaee he |1|

I contemplate the Way of Yoga, the Way of Union with the True Lord. I am truly absorbed in the primal void of deep meditation. ||1||

ਕੇਤੜਿਆ ਜੁਗ ਧੁੰਧੂਕਾਰੈ ॥
ketarriaa jug dhundhookaarai |

For so many ages, there was only pitch darkness;

ਤਾੜੀ ਲਾਈ ਸਿਰਜਣਹਾਰੈ ॥
taarree laaee sirajanahaarai |

the Creator Lord was absorbed in the primal void.

ਸਚੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਚੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਸਾਚੈ ਤਖਤਿ ਵਡਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੨॥
sach naam sachee vaddiaaee saachai takhat vaddaaee he |2|

There was the True Name, the glorious greatness of the Truth, and the glory of His true throne. ||2||

ਸਤਜੁਗਿ ਸਤੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸਰੀਰਾ ॥
satajug sat santokh sareeraa |

In the Golden Age of Truth, Truth and contentment filled the bodies.

ਸਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਵਰਤੈ ਗਹਿਰ ਗੰਭੀਰਾ ॥
sat sat varatai gahir ganbheeraa |

Truth was pervasive, Truth, deep, profound and unfathomable.

ਸਚਾ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਚੁ ਪਰਖੈ ਸਾਚੈ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਚਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੩॥
sachaa saahib sach parakhai saachai hukam chalaaee he |3|

The True Lord appraises the mortals on the Touchstone of Truth, and issues His True Command. ||3||

ਸਤ ਸੰਤੋਖੀ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰਾ ॥
sat santokhee satigur pooraa |

The Perfect True Guru is true and contented.

ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਮਨੇ ਸੋ ਸੂਰਾ ॥
gur kaa sabad mane so sooraa |

He alone is a spiritual hero, who believes in the Word of the Guru's Shabad.

ਸਾਚੀ ਦਰਗਹ ਸਾਚੁ ਨਿਵਾਸਾ ਮਾਨੈ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਰਜਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੪॥
saachee daragah saach nivaasaa maanai hukam rajaaee he |4|

He alone obtains a true seat in the True Court of the Lord, who surrenders to the Command of the Commander. ||4||

ਸਤਜੁਗਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਈ ॥
satajug saach kahai sabh koee |

In the Golden Age of Truth, everyone spoke the Truth.

ਸਚਿ ਵਰਤੈ ਸਾਚਾ ਸੋਈ ॥
sach varatai saachaa soee |

Truth was pervasive - the Lord was Truth.

ਮਨਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਭਰਮ ਭਉ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਸਖਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੫॥
man mukh saach bharam bhau bhanjan guramukh saach sakhaaee he |5|

With Truth in their minds and mouths, mortals were rid of doubt and fear. Truth was the friend of the Gurmukhs. ||5||

ਤ੍ਰੇਤੈ ਧਰਮ ਕਲਾ ਇਕ ਚੂਕੀ ॥
tretai dharam kalaa ik chookee |

In the Silver Age of Traytaa Yoga, one power of Dharma was lost.

ਤੀਨਿ ਚਰਣ ਇਕ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਸੂਕੀ ॥
teen charan ik dubidhaa sookee |

Three feet remained; through duality, one was cut off.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਸੁ ਸਾਚੁ ਵਖਾਣੈ ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਪਚੈ ਅਵਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੬॥
guramukh hovai su saach vakhaanai manamukh pachai avaaee he |6|

Those who were Gurmukh spoke the Truth, while the self-willed manmukhs wasted away in vain. ||6||

ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਕਦੇ ਨ ਦਰਗਹ ਸੀਝੈ ॥
manamukh kade na daragah seejhai |

The manmukh never succeeds in the Court of the Lord.

ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਕਿਉ ਅੰਤਰੁ ਰੀਝੈ ॥
bin sabadai kiau antar reejhai |

Without the Word of the Shabad, how can one be pleased within?

ਬਾਧੇ ਆਵਹਿ ਬਾਧੇ ਜਾਵਹਿ ਸੋਝੀ ਬੂਝ ਨ ਕਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੭॥
baadhe aaveh baadhe jaaveh sojhee boojh na kaaee he |7|

In bondage they come, and in bondage they go; they understand and comprehend nothing. ||7||

ਦਇਆ ਦੁਆਪੁਰਿ ਅਧੀ ਹੋਈ ॥
deaa duaapur adhee hoee |

In the Brass Age of Dwaapur Yuga, compassion was cut in half.
