Maaroo, Solahas, Fifth Mehl:
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
The Primal, Immaculate Lord God is formless.

He has no race or social class, no identifying mark. By the Hukam of His Will, He created the entire universe. ||1||
Out of all the 8.4 million species of beings,
God blessed mankind with glory.

What should I say, to one who has been created.

Only serves to tie your feet.
