In this temple of the mind, the mind wanders around.
Discarding joy like straw, it suffers in terrible pain.
Without meeting the True Guru, it finds no place of rest; He Himself has staged this play. ||7||
He Himself is infinite; He contemplates Himself.
He Himself bestows Union through actions of excellence.
What can the poor creatures do? Granting forgiveness, He unites them with Himself. ||8||
The Perfect Lord Himself unites them with the True Guru.
Through the True Word of the Shabad, he makes them brave spiritual heroes.
Uniting them with Himself, He bestows glorious greatness; He inspires them to focus their consciousness on the True Lord. ||9||

How rare are those who, as Gurmukh, realize this.

Some are engrossed in emotional attachment to Maya and pride.
They are self-conceited and egotistical.
They never think about the Messenger of Death; in the end, they leave, regretting and repenting. ||15||

The Gurmukh, who is blessed with the Shabad, realizes Him.

Maaroo, Third Mehl:
From the very beginning of time, and throughout the ages, the Merciful Lord has been the Great Giver.
Through the Shabad, the Word of the Perfect Guru, He is realized.
Those who serve You are immersed in You. You unite them in Union with Yourself. ||1||

As is pleases Your Will, You guide us along; You Yourself place us on the Path. ||2||
The True Lord is, and shall always be.

The Giver of peace takes care of all; He Himself sustains them. ||3||
You are inaccessible, unfathomable, invisible and infinite;
no one knows Your extent.
You Yourself realize Yourself. Through the Guru's Teachings, You reveal Yourself. ||4||
Your Almighty Command prevails throughout
