ਲਬੁ ਅਧੇਰਾ ਬੰਦੀਖਾਨਾ ਅਉਗਣ ਪੈਰਿ ਲੁਹਾਰੀ ॥੩॥
lab adheraa bandeekhaanaa aaugan pair luhaaree |3|

Greed is the dark dungeon, and demerits are the shackles on his feet. ||3||

ਪੂੰਜੀ ਮਾਰ ਪਵੈ ਨਿਤ ਮੁਦਗਰ ਪਾਪੁ ਕਰੇ ਕੁੋਟਵਾਰੀ ॥
poonjee maar pavai nit mudagar paap kare kuottavaaree |

His wealth constantly batters him, and sin acts as the police officer.

ਭਾਵੈ ਚੰਗਾ ਭਾਵੈ ਮੰਦਾ ਜੈਸੀ ਨਦਰਿ ਤੁਮੑਾਰੀ ॥੪॥
bhaavai changaa bhaavai mandaa jaisee nadar tumaaree |4|

Whether the mortal is good or bad, he is as You look upon him, O Lord. ||4||

ਆਦਿ ਪੁਰਖ ਕਉ ਅਲਹੁ ਕਹੀਐ ਸੇਖਾਂ ਆਈ ਵਾਰੀ ॥
aad purakh kau alahu kaheeai sekhaan aaee vaaree |

The Primal Lord God is called Allah. The Shaykh's turn has now come.

ਦੇਵਲ ਦੇਵਤਿਆ ਕਰੁ ਲਾਗਾ ਐਸੀ ਕੀਰਤਿ ਚਾਲੀ ॥੫॥
deval devatiaa kar laagaa aaisee keerat chaalee |5|

The temples of the gods are subject to taxes; this is what it has come to. ||5||

ਕੂਜਾ ਬਾਂਗ ਨਿਵਾਜ ਮੁਸਲਾ ਨੀਲ ਰੂਪ ਬਨਵਾਰੀ ॥
koojaa baang nivaaj musalaa neel roop banavaaree |

The Muslim devotional pots, calls to prayer, prayers and prayer mats are everywhere; the Lord appears in blue robes.

ਘਰਿ ਘਰਿ ਮੀਆ ਸਭਨਾਂ ਜੀਆਂ ਬੋਲੀ ਅਵਰ ਤੁਮਾਰੀ ॥੬॥
ghar ghar meea sabhanaan jeean bolee avar tumaaree |6|

In each and every home, everyone uses Muslim greetings; your speech has changed, O people. ||6||

ਜੇ ਤੂ ਮੀਰ ਮਹੀਪਤਿ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਕਉਣ ਹਮਾਰੀ ॥
je too meer maheepat saahib kudarat kaun hamaaree |

You, O my Lord and Master, are the King of the earth; what power do I have to challenge You?

ਚਾਰੇ ਕੁੰਟ ਸਲਾਮੁ ਕਰਹਿਗੇ ਘਰਿ ਘਰਿ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਤੁਮੑਾਰੀ ॥੭॥
chaare kuntt salaam karahige ghar ghar sifat tumaaree |7|

In the four directions, people bow in humble adoration to You; Your Praises are sung in each and every heart. ||7||

ਤੀਰਥ ਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਪੁੰਨ ਦਾਨ ਕਿਛੁ ਲਾਹਾ ਮਿਲੈ ਦਿਹਾੜੀ ॥
teerath sinmrit pun daan kichh laahaa milai dihaarree |

Making pilgrimages to sacred shrines, reading the Simritees and giving donations in charity - these do bring any profit.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਮੇਕਾ ਘੜੀ ਸਮੑਾਲੀ ॥੮॥੧॥੮॥
naanak naam milai vaddiaaee mekaa gharree samaalee |8|1|8|

O Nanak, glorious greatness is obtained in an instant, remembering the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||8||1||8||

ਬਸੰਤੁ ਹਿੰਡੋਲੁ ਘਰੁ ੨ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥
basant hinddol ghar 2 mahalaa 4 |

Basant Hindol, Second House, Fourth Mehl:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

ਕਾਂਇਆ ਨਗਰਿ ਇਕੁ ਬਾਲਕੁ ਵਸਿਆ ਖਿਨੁ ਪਲੁ ਥਿਰੁ ਨ ਰਹਾਈ ॥
kaaneaa nagar ik baalak vasiaa khin pal thir na rahaaee |

Within the body-village there lives a child who cannot hold still, even for an instant.

ਅਨਿਕ ਉਪਾਵ ਜਤਨ ਕਰਿ ਥਾਕੇ ਬਾਰੰ ਬਾਰ ਭਰਮਾਈ ॥੧॥
anik upaav jatan kar thaake baaran baar bharamaaee |1|

It makes so many efforts, and grows weary, but still, it wanders restlessly again and again. ||1||

ਮੇਰੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਬਾਲਕੁ ਇਕਤੁ ਘਰਿ ਆਣੁ ॥
mere tthaakur baalak ikat ghar aan |

O my Lord and Master, Your child has come home, to be one with You.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਤ ਪੂਰਾ ਪਾਈਐ ਭਜੁ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਨੀਸਾਣੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
satigur milai ta pooraa paaeeai bhaj raam naam neesaan |1| rahaau |

Meeting the True Guru, he finds the Perfect Lord. Meditating and vibrating on the Name of the Lord, he receives the Insignia of the Lord. ||1||Pause||

ਇਹੁ ਮਿਰਤਕੁ ਮੜਾ ਸਰੀਰੁ ਹੈ ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਜਿਤੁ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਹੀ ਵਸਿਆ ॥
eihu miratak marraa sareer hai sabh jag jit raam naam nahee vasiaa |

These are dead corpses, these bodies of all the people of the world; the Name of the Lord does not dwell in them.

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਗੁਰਿ ਉਦਕੁ ਚੁਆਇਆ ਫਿਰਿ ਹਰਿਆ ਹੋਆ ਰਸਿਆ ॥੨॥
raam naam gur udak chuaaeaa fir hariaa hoaa rasiaa |2|

The Guru leads us to taste the water of the Lord's Name, and then we savor and enjoy it, and our bodies are rejuvenated. ||2||

ਮੈ ਨਿਰਖਤ ਨਿਰਖਤ ਸਰੀਰੁ ਸਭੁ ਖੋਜਿਆ ਇਕੁ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਚਲਤੁ ਦਿਖਾਇਆ ॥
mai nirakhat nirakhat sareer sabh khojiaa ik guramukh chalat dikhaaeaa |

I have examined and studied and searched my entire body, and as Gurmukh, I behold a miraculous wonder.

ਬਾਹਰੁ ਖੋਜਿ ਮੁਏ ਸਭਿ ਸਾਕਤ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਘਰਿ ਪਾਇਆ ॥੩॥
baahar khoj mue sabh saakat har guramatee ghar paaeaa |3|

All the faithless cynics searched outside and died, but following the Guru's Teachings, I have found the Lord within the home of my own heart. ||3||

ਦੀਨਾ ਦੀਨ ਦਇਆਲ ਭਏ ਹੈ ਜਿਉ ਕ੍ਰਿਸਨੁ ਬਿਦਰ ਘਰਿ ਆਇਆ ॥
deenaa deen deaal bhe hai jiau krisan bidar ghar aaeaa |

God is Merciful to the meekest of the meek; Krishna came to the house of Bidar, a devotee of low social status.

ਮਿਲਿਓ ਸੁਦਾਮਾ ਭਾਵਨੀ ਧਾਰਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਆਗੈ ਦਾਲਦੁ ਭੰਜਿ ਸਮਾਇਆ ॥੪॥
milio sudaamaa bhaavanee dhaar sabh kichh aagai daalad bhanj samaaeaa |4|

Sudama loved God, who came to meet him; God sent everything to his home, and ended his poverty. ||4||

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਪੈਜ ਵਡੇਰੀ ਮੇਰੇ ਠਾਕੁਰਿ ਆਪਿ ਰਖਾਈ ॥
raam naam kee paij vadderee mere tthaakur aap rakhaaee |

Great is the glory of the Name of the Lord. My Lord and Master Himself has enshrined it within me.

ਜੇ ਸਭਿ ਸਾਕਤ ਕਰਹਿ ਬਖੀਲੀ ਇਕ ਰਤੀ ਤਿਲੁ ਨ ਘਟਾਈ ॥੫॥
je sabh saakat kareh bakheelee ik ratee til na ghattaaee |5|

Even if all the faithless cynics continue slandering me, it is not diminished by even one iota. ||5||

ਜਨ ਕੀ ਉਸਤਤਿ ਹੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮਾ ਦਹ ਦਿਸਿ ਸੋਭਾ ਪਾਈ ॥
jan kee usatat hai raam naamaa dah dis sobhaa paaee |

The Lord's Name is the praise of His humble servant. It brings him honor in the ten directions.

ਨਿੰਦਕੁ ਸਾਕਤੁ ਖਵਿ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਤਿਲੁ ਅਪਣੈ ਘਰਿ ਲੂਕੀ ਲਾਈ ॥੬॥
nindak saakat khav na sakai til apanai ghar lookee laaee |6|

The slanderers and the faithless cynics cannot endure it at all; they have set fire to their own houses. ||6||

ਜਨ ਕਉ ਜਨੁ ਮਿਲਿ ਸੋਭਾ ਪਾਵੈ ਗੁਣ ਮਹਿ ਗੁਣ ਪਰਗਾਸਾ ॥
jan kau jan mil sobhaa paavai gun meh gun paragaasaa |

The humble person meeting with another humble person obtains honor. In the glory of the Lord, their glory shines forth.

ਮੇਰੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਕੇ ਜਨ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਜੋ ਹੋਵਹਿ ਦਾਸਨਿ ਦਾਸਾ ॥੭॥
mere tthaakur ke jan preetam piaare jo hoveh daasan daasaa |7|

The servants of my Lord and Master are loved by the Beloved. They are the slaves of His slaves. ||7||

ਆਪੇ ਜਲੁ ਅਪਰੰਪਰੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਆਪੇ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਵੈ ॥
aape jal aparanpar karataa aape mel milaavai |

The Creator Himself is the Water; He Himself unites us in His Union.

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਹਜਿ ਮਿਲਾਏ ਜਿਉ ਜਲੁ ਜਲਹਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੮॥੧॥੯॥
naanak guramukh sahaj milaae jiau jal jaleh samaavai |8|1|9|

O Nanak, the Gurmukh is absorbed in celestial peace and poise, like water blending with water. ||8||1||9||
