ਨਿਤ ਨਿਤ ਲੇਹੁ ਨ ਛੀਜੈ ਦੇਹ ॥
nit nit lehu na chheejai deh |

Take it each and every day, and your body shall not waste away.

ਅੰਤ ਕਾਲਿ ਜਮੁ ਮਾਰੈ ਠੇਹ ॥੧॥
ant kaal jam maarai ttheh |1|

At the very last instant, you shall strike down the Messenger of Death. ||1||

ਐਸਾ ਦਾਰੂ ਖਾਹਿ ਗਵਾਰ ॥
aaisaa daaroo khaeh gavaar |

So take such medicine, O fool,

ਜਿਤੁ ਖਾਧੈ ਤੇਰੇ ਜਾਹਿ ਵਿਕਾਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jit khaadhai tere jaeh vikaar |1| rahaau |

by which your corruption shall be taken away. ||1||Pause||

ਰਾਜੁ ਮਾਲੁ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਸਭੁ ਛਾਂਵ ॥
raaj maal joban sabh chhaanv |

Power, wealth and youth are all just shadows,

ਰਥਿ ਫਿਰੰਦੈ ਦੀਸਹਿ ਥਾਵ ॥
rath firandai deeseh thaav |

as are the vehicles you see moving around.

ਦੇਹ ਨ ਨਾਉ ਨ ਹੋਵੈ ਜਾਤਿ ॥
deh na naau na hovai jaat |

Neither your body, nor your fame, nor your social status shall go along with you.

ਓਥੈ ਦਿਹੁ ਐਥੈ ਸਭ ਰਾਤਿ ॥੨॥
othai dihu aaithai sabh raat |2|

In the next world it is day, while here, it is all night. ||2||

ਸਾਦ ਕਰਿ ਸਮਧਾਂ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਘਿਉ ਤੇਲੁ ॥
saad kar samadhaan trisanaa ghiau tel |

Let your taste for pleasures be the firewood, let your greed be the ghee,

ਕਾਮੁ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਅਗਨੀ ਸਿਉ ਮੇਲੁ ॥
kaam krodh aganee siau mel |

and your sexual desire and anger the cooking oil; burn them in the fire.

ਹੋਮ ਜਗ ਅਰੁ ਪਾਠ ਪੁਰਾਣ ॥
hom jag ar paatth puraan |

Some make burnt offerings, hold sacred feasts, and read the Puraanas.

ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋ ਪਰਵਾਣ ॥੩॥
jo tis bhaavai so paravaan |3|

Whatever pleases God is acceptable. ||3||

ਤਪੁ ਕਾਗਦੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਨੀਸਾਨੁ ॥
tap kaagad teraa naam neesaan |

Intense meditation is the paper, and Your Name is the insignia.

ਜਿਨ ਕਉ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਏਹੁ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ॥
jin kau likhiaa ehu nidhaan |

Those for whom this treasure is ordered,

ਸੇ ਧਨਵੰਤ ਦਿਸਹਿ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
se dhanavant diseh ghar jaae |

look wealthy when they reach their true home.

ਨਾਨਕ ਜਨਨੀ ਧੰਨੀ ਮਾਇ ॥੪॥੩॥੮॥
naanak jananee dhanee maae |4|3|8|

O Nanak, blessed is that mother who gave birth to them. ||4||3||8||

ਮਲਾਰ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
malaar mahalaa 1 |

Malaar, First Mehl:

ਬਾਗੇ ਕਾਪੜ ਬੋਲੈ ਬੈਣ ॥
baage kaaparr bolai bain |

You wear white clothes, and speak sweet words.

ਲੰਮਾ ਨਕੁ ਕਾਲੇ ਤੇਰੇ ਨੈਣ ॥
lamaa nak kaale tere nain |

Your nose is sharp, and your eyes are black.

ਕਬਹੂੰ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਦੇਖਿਆ ਭੈਣ ॥੧॥
kabahoon saahib dekhiaa bhain |1|

Have you ever seen your Lord and Master, O sister? ||1||

ਊਡਾਂ ਊਡਿ ਚੜਾਂ ਅਸਮਾਨਿ ॥
aooddaan aoodd charraan asamaan |

O my All-powerful Lord and Master,

ਸਾਹਿਬ ਸੰਮ੍ਰਿਥ ਤੇਰੈ ਤਾਣਿ ॥
saahib samrith terai taan |

By Your power, I fly and soar, and ascend to the heavens.

ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਡੂੰਗਰਿ ਦੇਖਾਂ ਤੀਰ ॥
jal thal ddoongar dekhaan teer |

I see Him in the water, on the land, in the mountains, on the river-banks,

ਥਾਨ ਥਨੰਤਰਿ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਬੀਰ ॥੨॥
thaan thanantar saahib beer |2|

in all places and interspaces, O brother. ||2||

ਜਿਨਿ ਤਨੁ ਸਾਜਿ ਦੀਏ ਨਾਲਿ ਖੰਭ ॥
jin tan saaj dee naal khanbh |

He fashioned the body, and gave it wings;

ਅਤਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਉਡਣੈ ਕੀ ਡੰਝ ॥
at trisanaa uddanai kee ddanjh |

He gave it great thirst and desire to fly.

ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਤਾਂ ਬੰਧਾਂ ਧੀਰ ॥
nadar kare taan bandhaan dheer |

When He bestows His Glance of Grace, I am comforted and consoled.

ਜਿਉ ਵੇਖਾਲੇ ਤਿਉ ਵੇਖਾਂ ਬੀਰ ॥੩॥
jiau vekhaale tiau vekhaan beer |3|

As He makes me see, so do I see, O brother. ||3||

ਨ ਇਹੁ ਤਨੁ ਜਾਇਗਾ ਨ ਜਾਹਿਗੇ ਖੰਭ ॥
n ihu tan jaaeigaa na jaahige khanbh |

Neither this body, nor its wings, shall go to the world hereafter.

ਪਉਣੈ ਪਾਣੀ ਅਗਨੀ ਕਾ ਸਨਬੰਧ ॥
paunai paanee aganee kaa sanabandh |

It is a fusion of air, water and fire.

ਨਾਨਕ ਕਰਮੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਜਪੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੀਰੁ ॥
naanak karam hovai japeeai kar gur peer |

O Nanak, if it is in the mortal's karma, then he meditates on the Lord, with the Guru as his Spiritual Teacher.

ਸਚਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ਏਹੁ ਸਰੀਰੁ ॥੪॥੪॥੯॥
sach samaavai ehu sareer |4|4|9|

This body is absorbed in the Truth. ||4||4||9||

ਮਲਾਰ ਮਹਲਾ ੩ ਚਉਪਦੇ ਘਰੁ ੧ ॥
malaar mahalaa 3 chaupade ghar 1 |

Malaar, Third Mehl, Chau-Padhay, First House:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

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

ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ਆਕਾਰੁ ਹੈ ਆਪੇ ਆਪੇ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਏ ॥
nirankaar aakaar hai aape aape bharam bhulaae |

The Formless Lord is formed by Himself. He Himself deludes in doubt.

ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਤਾ ਆਪੇ ਵੇਖੈ ਜਿਤੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਤੁ ਲਾਏ ॥
kar kar karataa aape vekhai jit bhaavai tith laae |

Creating the Creation, the Creator Himself beholds it; He enjoins us as He pleases.

ਸੇਵਕ ਕਉ ਏਹਾ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਮਨਾਏ ॥੧॥
sevak kau ehaa vaddiaaee jaa kau hukam manaae |1|

This is the true greatness of His servant, that he obeys the Hukam of the Lord's Command. ||1||

ਆਪਣਾ ਭਾਣਾ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੈ ਗੁਰ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਤੇ ਲਹੀਐ ॥
aapanaa bhaanaa aape jaanai gur kirapaa te laheeai |

Only He Himself knows His Will. By Guru's Grace, it is grasped.

ਏਹਾ ਸਕਤਿ ਸਿਵੈ ਘਰਿ ਆਵੈ ਜੀਵਦਿਆ ਮਰਿ ਰਹੀਐ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ehaa sakat sivai ghar aavai jeevadiaa mar raheeai |1| rahaau |

When this play of Shiva and Shakti comes to his home, he remains dead while yet alive. ||1||Pause||

ਵੇਦ ਪੜੈ ਪੜਿ ਵਾਦੁ ਵਖਾਣੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਮਹੇਸਾ ॥
ved parrai parr vaad vakhaanai brahamaa bisan mahesaa |

They read the Vedas, and read them again, and engage in arguments about Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

ਏਹ ਤ੍ਰਿਗੁਣ ਮਾਇਆ ਜਿਨਿ ਜਗਤੁ ਭੁਲਾਇਆ ਜਨਮ ਮਰਣ ਕਾ ਸਹਸਾ ॥
eh trigun maaeaa jin jagat bhulaaeaa janam maran kaa sahasaa |

This three-phased Maya has deluded the whole world into cynicism about death and birth.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਏਕੋ ਜਾਣੈ ਚੂਕੈ ਮਨਹੁ ਅੰਦੇਸਾ ॥੨॥
guraparasaadee eko jaanai chookai manahu andesaa |2|

By Guru's Grace, know the One Lord, and the anxiety of your mind will be allayed. ||2||

ਹਮ ਦੀਨ ਮੂਰਖ ਅਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਤੁਮ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਕਰਹੁ ਹਮਾਰੀ ॥
ham deen moorakh aveechaaree tum chintaa karahu hamaaree |

I am meek, foolish and thoughtless, but still, You take care of me.

ਹੋਹੁ ਦਇਆਲ ਕਰਿ ਦਾਸੁ ਦਾਸਾ ਕਾ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰੀ ਤੁਮਾਰੀ ॥
hohu deaal kar daas daasaa kaa sevaa karee tumaaree |

Please be kind to me, and make me the slave of Your slaves, so that I may serve You.

ਏਕੁ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਦੇਹਿ ਤੂ ਅਪਣਾ ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਾਣੀ ॥੩॥
ek nidhaan dehi too apanaa ahinis naam vakhaanee |3|

Please bless me with the treasure of the One Name, that I may chant it, day and night. ||3||

ਕਹਤ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਬੂਝਹੁ ਕੋਈ ਐਸਾ ਕਰੇ ਵੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
kahat naanak guraparasaadee boojhahu koee aaisaa kare veechaaraa |

Says Nanak, by Guru's Grace, understand. Hardly anyone considers this.

ਜਿਉ ਜਲ ਊਪਰਿ ਫੇਨੁ ਬੁਦਬੁਦਾ ਤੈਸਾ ਇਹੁ ਸੰਸਾਰਾ ॥
jiau jal aoopar fen budabudaa taisaa ihu sansaaraa |

Like foam bubbling up on the surface of the water, so is this world.
