ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਵਿਰਲਾ ਚੀਨੈ ਕੋਈ ॥
guramukh viralaa cheenai koee |

Only a few, as Gurmukh, remembered the Lord.

ਦੁਇ ਪਗ ਧਰਮੁ ਧਰੇ ਧਰਣੀਧਰ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਤਿਥਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੮॥
due pag dharam dhare dharaneedhar guramukh saach tithaaee he |8|

Dharmic faith, which upholds and supports the earth, had only two feet; Truth was revealed to the Gurmukhs. ||8||

ਰਾਜੇ ਧਰਮੁ ਕਰਹਿ ਪਰਥਾਏ ॥
raaje dharam kareh parathaae |

The kings acted righteously only out of self-interest.

ਆਸਾ ਬੰਧੇ ਦਾਨੁ ਕਰਾਏ ॥
aasaa bandhe daan karaae |

Tied to hopes of reward, they gave to charities.

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨੁ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ਥਾਕੇ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੯॥
raam naam bin mukat na hoee thaake karam kamaaee he |9|

Without the Lord's Name, liberation did not come, although they grew weary of performing rituals. ||9||

ਕਰਮ ਧਰਮ ਕਰਿ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਮੰਗਾਹੀ ॥
karam dharam kar mukat mangaahee |

Practicing religious rituals, they sought liberation,

ਮੁਕਤਿ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਸਲਾਹੀ ॥
mukat padaarath sabad salaahee |

but the treasure of liberation comes only by praising the Shabad.

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੈ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ਪਰਪੰਚੁ ਕਰਿ ਭਰਮਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੦॥
bin gurasabadai mukat na hoee parapanch kar bharamaaee he |10|

Without the Word of the Guru's Shabad, liberation is not obtained; practicing hypocrisy, they wander around confused. ||10||

ਮਾਇਆ ਮਮਤਾ ਛੋਡੀ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥
maaeaa mamataa chhoddee na jaaee |

Love and attachment to Maya cannot be abandoned.

ਸੇ ਛੂਟੇ ਸਚੁ ਕਾਰ ਕਮਾਈ ॥
se chhootte sach kaar kamaaee |

They alone find release, who practice deeds of Truth.

ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਰਤੇ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਸਿਉ ਬਣਿ ਆਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੧॥
ahinis bhagat rate veechaaree tthaakur siau ban aaee he |11|

Day and night, the devotees remain imbued with contemplative meditation; they become just like their Lord and Master. ||11||

ਇਕਿ ਜਪ ਤਪ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਨਾਵਹਿ ॥
eik jap tap kar kar teerath naaveh |

Some chant and practice intensive meditation, and take cleansing baths at sacred shrines of pilgrimage.

ਜਿਉ ਤੁਧੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਵੈ ਚਲਾਵਹਿ ॥
jiau tudh bhaavai tivai chalaaveh |

They walk as You will them to walk.

ਹਠਿ ਨਿਗ੍ਰਹਿ ਅਪਤੀਜੁ ਨ ਭੀਜੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰ ਕਿਨਿ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੨॥
hatth nigreh apateej na bheejai bin har gur kin pat paaee he |12|

By stubborn rituals of self-suppression, the Lord is not pleased. No one has ever obtained honor, without the Lord, without the Guru. ||12||

ਕਲੀ ਕਾਲ ਮਹਿ ਇਕ ਕਲ ਰਾਖੀ ॥
kalee kaal meh ik kal raakhee |

In the Iron Age, the Dark Age of Kali Yuga, only one power remains.

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਕਿਨੈ ਨ ਭਾਖੀ ॥
bin gur poore kinai na bhaakhee |

Without the Perfect Guru, no one has even described it.

ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਕੂੜੁ ਵਰਤੈ ਵਰਤਾਰਾ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਭਰਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੩॥
manamukh koorr varatai varataaraa bin satigur bharam na jaaee he |13|

The self-willed manmukhs have staged the show of falsehood. Without the True Guru, doubt does not depart. ||13||

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਵੇਪਰਵਾਹੁ ਸਿਰੰਦਾ ॥
satigur veparavaahu sirandaa |

The True Guru is the Creator Lord, independent and carefree.

ਨਾ ਜਮ ਕਾਣਿ ਨ ਛੰਦਾ ਬੰਦਾ ॥
naa jam kaan na chhandaa bandaa |

He does not fear death, and He is not dependent on mortal men.

ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੇਵੇ ਸੋ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਨਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਸੰਤਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੪॥
jo tis seve so abinaasee naa tis kaal santaaee he |14|

Whoever serves Him becomes immortal and imperishable, and will not be tortured by death. ||14||

ਗੁਰ ਮਹਿ ਆਪੁ ਰਖਿਆ ਕਰਤਾਰੇ ॥
gur meh aap rakhiaa karataare |

The Creator Lord has enshrined Himself within the Guru.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਕੋਟਿ ਅਸੰਖ ਉਧਾਰੇ ॥
guramukh kott asankh udhaare |

The Gurmukh saves countless millions.

ਸਰਬ ਜੀਆ ਜਗਜੀਵਨੁ ਦਾਤਾ ਨਿਰਭਉ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਕਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੫॥
sarab jeea jagajeevan daataa nirbhau mail na kaaee he |15|

The Life of the World is the Great Giver of all beings. The Fearless Lord has no filth at all. ||15||

ਸਗਲੇ ਜਾਚਹਿ ਗੁਰ ਭੰਡਾਰੀ ॥
sagale jaacheh gur bhanddaaree |

Everyone begs from the Guru, God's Treasurer.

ਆਪਿ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਅਲਖ ਅਪਾਰੀ ॥
aap niranjan alakh apaaree |

He Himself is the immaculate, unknowable, infinite Lord.

ਨਾਨਕੁ ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਜਾਚੈ ਮੈ ਦੀਜੈ ਸਾਚੁ ਰਜਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧੬॥੪॥
naanak saach kahai prabh jaachai mai deejai saach rajaaee he |16|4|

Nanak speaks the Truth; he begs from God. Please bless me with the Truth, by Your Will. ||16||4||

ਮਾਰੂ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
maaroo mahalaa 1 |

Maaroo, First Mehl:

ਸਾਚੈ ਮੇਲੇ ਸਬਦਿ ਮਿਲਾਏ ॥
saachai mele sabad milaae |

The True Lord unites with those who are united with the Word of the Shabad.

ਜਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਣਾ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਏ ॥
jaa tis bhaanaa sahaj samaae |

When it pleases Him, we intuitively merge with Him.

ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਜੋਤਿ ਧਰੀ ਪਰਮੇਸਰਿ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਭਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੧॥
tribhavan jot dharee paramesar avar na doojaa bhaaee he |1|

The Light of the Transcendent Lord pervades the three worlds; there is no other at all, O Siblings of Destiny. ||1||

ਜਿਸ ਕੇ ਚਾਕਰ ਤਿਸ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ॥
jis ke chaakar tis kee sevaa |

I am His servant; I serve Him.

ਸਬਦਿ ਪਤੀਜੈ ਅਲਖ ਅਭੇਵਾ ॥
sabad pateejai alakh abhevaa |

He is unknowable and mysterious; He is pleased by the Shabad.

ਭਗਤਾ ਕਾ ਗੁਣਕਾਰੀ ਕਰਤਾ ਬਖਸਿ ਲਏ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਹੇ ॥੨॥
bhagataa kaa gunakaaree karataa bakhas le vaddiaaee he |2|

The Creator is the Benefactor of His devotees. He forgives them - such is His greatness. ||2||

ਦੇਦੇ ਤੋਟਿ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਸਾਚੇ ॥
dede tott na aavai saache |

The True Lord gives and gives; His blessings never run short.

ਲੈ ਲੈ ਮੁਕਰਿ ਪਉਦੇ ਕਾਚੇ ॥
lai lai mukar paude kaache |

The false ones receive, and then deny having received.

ਮੂਲੁ ਨ ਬੂਝਹਿ ਸਾਚਿ ਨ ਰੀਝਹਿ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੩॥
mool na boojheh saach na reejheh doojai bharam bhulaaee he |3|

They do not understand their origins, they are not pleased with the Truth, and so they wander in duality and doubt. ||3||

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਗਿ ਰਹੇ ਦਿਨ ਰਾਤੀ ॥
guramukh jaag rahe din raatee |

The Gurmukhs remain awake and aware, day and night.

ਸਾਚੇ ਕੀ ਲਿਵ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਜਾਤੀ ॥
saache kee liv guramat jaatee |

Following the Guru's Teachings, they know the Love of the True Lord.

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਸੋਇ ਰਹੇ ਸੇ ਲੂਟੇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਾਬਤੁ ਭਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੪॥
manamukh soe rahe se lootte guramukh saabat bhaaee he |4|

The self-willed manmukhs remain asleep, and are plundered. The Gurmukhs remain safe and sound, O Siblings of Destiny. ||4||

ਕੂੜੇ ਆਵੈ ਕੂੜੇ ਜਾਵੈ ॥
koorre aavai koorre jaavai |

The false come, and the false go;

ਕੂੜੇ ਰਾਤੀ ਕੂੜੁ ਕਮਾਵੈ ॥
koorre raatee koorr kamaavai |

imbued with falsehood, they practice only falsehood.

ਸਬਦਿ ਮਿਲੇ ਸੇ ਦਰਗਹ ਪੈਧੇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਸਮਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੫॥
sabad mile se daragah paidhe guramukh surat samaaee he |5|

Those who are imbued with the Shabad are robed in honor in the Court of the Lord; the Gurmukhs focus their consciousness on Him. ||5||

ਕੂੜਿ ਮੁਠੀ ਠਗੀ ਠਗਵਾੜੀ ॥
koorr mutthee tthagee tthagavaarree |

The false are cheated, and robbed by the robbers.

ਜਿਉ ਵਾੜੀ ਓਜਾੜਿ ਉਜਾੜੀ ॥
jiau vaarree ojaarr ujaarree |

The garden is laid waste, like the rough wilderness.

ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਸਾਦਿ ਨ ਲਾਗੈ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਸਰਿਐ ਦੁਖੁ ਪਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੬॥
naam binaa kichh saad na laagai har bisariaai dukh paaee he |6|

Without the Naam, the Name of the Lord, nothing tastes sweet; forgetting the Lord, they suffer in sorrow. ||6||

ਭੋਜਨੁ ਸਾਚੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਆਘਾਈ ॥
bhojan saach milai aaghaaee |

Receiving the food of Truth, one is satisfied.

ਨਾਮ ਰਤਨੁ ਸਾਚੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥
naam ratan saachee vaddiaaee |

True is the glorious greatness of the jewel of the Name.

ਚੀਨੈ ਆਪੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਸੋਈ ਜੋਤੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਮਿਲਾਈ ਹੇ ॥੭॥
cheenai aap pachhaanai soee jotee jot milaaee he |7|

One who understands his own self, realizes the Lord. His light merges into the Light. ||7||
