ਮਾਝ ਮਹਲਾ ੩ ॥
maajh mahalaa 3 |

Maajh, Third Mehl:

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਪੜਹਿ ਪੰਡਿਤ ਕਹਾਵਹਿ ॥
manamukh parreh panddit kahaaveh |

The self-willed manmukhs read and recite; they are called Pandits-spiritual scholars.

ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਮਹਾ ਦੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਹਿ ॥
doojai bhaae mahaa dukh paaveh |

But they are in love with duality, and they suffer in terrible pain.

ਬਿਖਿਆ ਮਾਤੇ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੂਝੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਜੂਨੀ ਆਵਣਿਆ ॥੧॥
bikhiaa maate kichh soojhai naahee fir fir joonee aavaniaa |1|

Intoxicated with vice, they understand nothing at all. They are reincarnated, over and over again. ||1||

ਹਉ ਵਾਰੀ ਜੀਉ ਵਾਰੀ ਹਉਮੈ ਮਾਰਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥
hau vaaree jeeo vaaree haumai maar milaavaniaa |

I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice, to those who subdue their ego, and unite with the Lord.

ਗੁਰ ਸੇਵਾ ਤੇ ਹਰਿ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਸਹਜਿ ਪੀਆਵਣਿਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
gur sevaa te har man vasiaa har ras sahaj peeaavaniaa |1| rahaau |

They serve the Guru, and the Lord dwells within their minds; they intuitively drink in the sublime essence of the Lord. ||1||Pause||

ਵੇਦੁ ਪੜਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਨਹੀ ਆਇਆ ॥
ved parreh har ras nahee aaeaa |

The Pandits read the Vedas, but they do not obtain the Lord's essence.

ਵਾਦੁ ਵਖਾਣਹਿ ਮੋਹੇ ਮਾਇਆ ॥
vaad vakhaaneh mohe maaeaa |

Intoxicated with Maya, they argue and debate.

ਅਗਿਆਨਮਤੀ ਸਦਾ ਅੰਧਿਆਰਾ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਬੂਝਿ ਹਰਿ ਗਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੨॥
agiaanamatee sadaa andhiaaraa guramukh boojh har gaavaniaa |2|

The foolish intellectuals are forever in spiritual darkness. The Gurmukhs understand, and sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||2||

ਅਕਥੋ ਕਥੀਐ ਸਬਦਿ ਸੁਹਾਵੈ ॥
akatho katheeai sabad suhaavai |

The Indescribable is described only through the beauteous Word of the Shabad.

ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਮਨਿ ਸਚੋ ਭਾਵੈ ॥
guramatee man sacho bhaavai |

Through the Guru's Teachings, the Truth becomes pleasing to the mind.

ਸਚੋ ਸਚੁ ਰਵਹਿ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤੀ ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਸਚਿ ਰੰਗਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੩॥
sacho sach raveh din raatee ihu man sach rangaavaniaa |3|

Those who speak of the truest of the true, day and night-their minds are imbued with the Truth. ||3||

ਜੋ ਸਚਿ ਰਤੇ ਤਿਨ ਸਚੋ ਭਾਵੈ ॥
jo sach rate tin sacho bhaavai |

Those who are attuned to Truth, love the Truth.

ਆਪੇ ਦੇਇ ਨ ਪਛੋਤਾਵੈ ॥
aape dee na pachhotaavai |

The Lord Himself bestows this gift; He shall not take it back.

ਕੂੜੁ ਕੁਸਤੁ ਤਿਨਾ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਲਾਗੈ ॥
koorr kusat tinaa mail na laagai |

The filth of fraud and falsehood does not stick to those who,

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਜਾਗੈ ॥
guraparasaadee anadin jaagai |

By Guru's Grace, remain awake and aware, night and day.

ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਸੈ ਘਟ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਜੋਤੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੫॥
niramal naam vasai ghatt bheetar jotee jot milaavaniaa |5|

The Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord, abides deep within their hearts; their light merges into the Light. ||5||

ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ਪੜਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਤਤੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਹਿ ॥
trai gun parreh har tat na jaaneh |

They read about the three qualities, but they do not know the essential reality of the Lord.

ਮੂਲਹੁ ਭੁਲੇ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਪਛਾਣਹਿ ॥
moolahu bhule gurasabad na pachhaaneh |

They forget the Primal Lord, the Source of all, and they do not recognize the Word of the Guru's Shabad.

ਮੋਹ ਬਿਆਪੇ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੂਝੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੬॥
moh biaape kichh soojhai naahee gurasabadee har paavaniaa |6|

They are engrossed in emotional attachment; they do not understand anything at all. Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, the Lord is found. ||6||

ਵੇਦੁ ਪੁਕਾਰੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਬਿਧਿ ਮਾਇਆ ॥
ved pukaarai tribidh maaeaa |

The Vedas proclaim that Maya is of three qualities.

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਨ ਬੂਝਹਿ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇਆ ॥
manamukh na boojheh doojai bhaaeaa |

The self-willed manmukhs, in love with duality, do not understand.

ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ਪੜਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਏਕੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਹਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਬੂਝੇ ਦੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥
trai gun parreh har ek na jaaneh bin boojhe dukh paavaniaa |7|

They read of the three qualities, but they do not know the One Lord. Without understanding, they obtain only pain and suffering. ||7||

ਜਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਾ ਆਪਿ ਮਿਲਾਏ ॥
jaa tis bhaavai taa aap milaae |

When it pleases the Lord, He unites us with Himself.

ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਸਹਸਾ ਦੂਖੁ ਚੁਕਾਏ ॥
gurasabadee sahasaa dookh chukaae |

Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, skepticism and suffering are dispelled.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਵੈ ਕੀ ਸਚੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਨਾਮੋ ਮੰਨਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੮॥੩੦॥੩੧॥
naanak naavai kee sachee vaddiaaee naamo man sukh paavaniaa |8|30|31|

O Nanak, True is the Greatness of the Name. Believing in the Name, peace is obtained. ||8||30||31||

Maajh, Third Mehl:

ਨਿਰਗੁਣੁ ਸਰਗੁਣੁ ਆਪੇ ਸੋਈ ॥
niragun saragun aape soee |

The Lord Himself is Unmanifest and Unrelated; He is Manifest and Related as well.

ਤਤੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਹੋਈ ॥
tat pachhaanai so panddit hoee |

Those who recognize this essential reality are the true Pandits, the spiritual scholars.

ਆਪਿ ਤਰੈ ਸਗਲੇ ਕੁਲ ਤਾਰੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੰਨਿ ਵਸਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੧॥
aap tarai sagale kul taarai har naam man vasaavaniaa |1|

They save themselves, and save all their families and ancestors as well, when they enshrine the Lord's Name in the mind. ||1||

ਹਉ ਵਾਰੀ ਜੀਉ ਵਾਰੀ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਚਖਿ ਸਾਦੁ ਪਾਵਣਿਆ ॥

I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice, to those who taste the essence of the Lord, and savor its taste.

ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਚਾਖਹਿ ਸੇ ਜਨ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਣਿਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
har ras chaakheh se jan niramal niramal naam dhiaavaniaa |1| rahaau |

Those who taste this essence of the Lord are the pure, immaculate beings. They meditate on the Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||1||Pause||

ਸੋ ਨਿਹਕਰਮੀ ਜੋ ਸਬਦੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੇ ॥
so nihakaramee jo sabad beechaare |

Those who reflect upon the Shabad are beyond karma.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਤਤੁ ਗਿਆਨਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਮਾਰੇ ॥
antar tat giaan haumai maare |

They subdue their ego, and find the essence of wisdom, deep within their being.

ਨਾਮੁ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਨਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਪਾਏ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ਮੇਟਿ ਸਮਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੨॥
naam padaarath nau nidh paae trai gun mett samaavaniaa |2|

They obtain the nine treasures of the wealth of the Naam. Rising above the three qualities, they merge into the Lord. ||2||

ਹਉਮੈ ਕਰੈ ਨਿਹਕਰਮੀ ਨ ਹੋਵੈ ॥
haumai karai nihakaramee na hovai |

Those who act in ego do not go beyond karma.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਹਉਮੈ ਖੋਵੈ ॥
guraparasaadee haumai khovai |

It is only by Guru's Grace that one is rid of ego.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਿਬੇਕੁ ਸਦਾ ਆਪੁ ਵੀਚਾਰੇ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੩॥
antar bibek sadaa aap veechaare gurasabadee gun gaavaniaa |3|

Those who have discriminating minds, continually examine their own selves. Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, they sing the Lord's Glorious Praises. ||3||

ਹਰਿ ਸਰੁ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਸੋਈ ॥
har sar saagar niramal soee |

The Lord is the most pure and sublime Ocean.

ਸੰਤ ਚੁਗਹਿ ਨਿਤ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹੋਈ ॥
sant chugeh nit guramukh hoee |

The Saintly Gurmukhs continually peck at the Naam, like swans pecking at pearls in the ocean.

ਇਸਨਾਨੁ ਕਰਹਿ ਸਦਾ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤੀ ਹਉਮੈ ਮੈਲੁ ਚੁਕਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੪॥
eisanaan kareh sadaa din raatee haumai mail chukaavaniaa |4|

They bathe in it continually, day and night, and the filth of ego is washed away. ||4||

ਨਿਰਮਲ ਹੰਸਾ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥

ਹਰਿ ਸਰਿ ਵਸੈ ਹਉਮੈ ਮਾਰਿ ॥
