ਅਵਰੀ ਨੋ ਸਮਝਾਵਣਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
avaree no samajhaavan jaae |

And yet, they go out to teach others.

ਮੁਠਾ ਆਪਿ ਮੁਹਾਏ ਸਾਥੈ ॥
mutthaa aap muhaae saathai |

They are deceived, and they deceive their companions.

ਨਾਨਕ ਐਸਾ ਆਗੂ ਜਾਪੈ ॥੧॥
naanak aaisaa aagoo jaapai |1|

O Nanak, such are the leaders of men. ||1||

ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥
mahalaa 4 |

Fourth Mehl:

ਜਿਸ ਦੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਚੁ ਹੈ ਸੋ ਸਚਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਸਚੁ ਅਲਾਏ ॥
jis dai andar sach hai so sachaa naam mukh sach alaae |

Those, within whom the Truth dwells, obtain the True Name; they speak only the Truth.

ਓਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਆਪਿ ਚਲਦਾ ਹੋਰਨਾ ਨੋ ਹਰਿ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਪਾਏ ॥
ohu har maarag aap chaladaa horanaa no har maarag paae |

They walk on the Lord's Path, and inspire others to walk on the Lord's Path as well.

ਜੇ ਅਗੈ ਤੀਰਥੁ ਹੋਇ ਤਾ ਮਲੁ ਲਹੈ ਛਪੜਿ ਨਾਤੈ ਸਗਵੀ ਮਲੁ ਲਾਏ ॥
je agai teerath hoe taa mal lahai chhaparr naatai sagavee mal laae |

Bathing in a pool of holy water, they are washed clean of filth. But, by bathing in a stagnant pond, they are contaminated with even more filth.

ਤੀਰਥੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੋ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ॥
teerath pooraa satiguroo jo anadin har har naam dhiaae |

The True Guru is the Perfect Pool of Holy Water. Night and day, He meditates on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har.

ਓਹੁ ਆਪਿ ਛੁਟਾ ਕੁਟੰਬ ਸਿਉ ਦੇ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਭ ਸ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਛਡਾਏ ॥
ohu aap chhuttaa kuttanb siau de har har naam sabh srisatt chhaddaae |

He is saved, along with his family; bestowing the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, He saves the whole world.

ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਣੈ ਜੋ ਆਪਿ ਜਪੈ ਅਵਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਏ ॥੨॥
jan naanak tis balihaaranai jo aap japai avaraa naam japaae |2|

Servant Nanak is a sacrifice to one who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it as well. ||2||

ਪਉੜੀ ॥
paurree |

Pauree:

ਇਕਿ ਕੰਦ ਮੂਲੁ ਚੁਣਿ ਖਾਹਿ ਵਣ ਖੰਡਿ ਵਾਸਾ ॥
eik kand mool chun khaeh van khandd vaasaa |

Some pick and eat fruits and roots, and live in the wilderness.

ਇਕਿ ਭਗਵਾ ਵੇਸੁ ਕਰਿ ਫਿਰਹਿ ਜੋਗੀ ਸੰਨਿਆਸਾ ॥
eik bhagavaa ves kar fireh jogee saniaasaa |

Some wander around wearing saffron robes, as Yogis and Sanyaasees.

ਅੰਦਰਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਛਾਦਨ ਭੋਜਨ ਕੀ ਆਸਾ ॥
andar trisanaa bahut chhaadan bhojan kee aasaa |

But there is still so much desire within them-they still yearn for clothes and food.

ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਗਵਾਇ ਨ ਗਿਰਹੀ ਨ ਉਦਾਸਾ ॥
birathaa janam gavaae na girahee na udaasaa |

They waste their lives uselessly; they are neither householders nor renunciates.

ਜਮਕਾਲੁ ਸਿਰਹੁ ਨ ਉਤਰੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਬਿਧਿ ਮਨਸਾ ॥
jamakaal sirahu na utarai tribidh manasaa |

The Messenger of Death hangs over their heads, and they cannot escape the three-phased desire.

ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਨੇੜੈ ਜਾ ਹੋਵੈ ਦਾਸਨਿ ਦਾਸਾ ॥
guramatee kaal na aavai nerrai jaa hovai daasan daasaa |

Death does not even approach those who follow the Guru's Teachings, and become the slaves of the Lord's slaves.

ਸਚਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਸਚੁ ਮਨਿ ਘਰ ਹੀ ਮਾਹਿ ਉਦਾਸਾ ॥
sachaa sabad sach man ghar hee maeh udaasaa |

The True Word of the Shabad abides in their true minds; within the home of their own inner beings, they remain detached.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਸੇਵਨਿ ਆਪਣਾ ਸੇ ਆਸਾ ਤੇ ਨਿਰਾਸਾ ॥੫॥
naanak satigur sevan aapanaa se aasaa te niraasaa |5|

O Nanak, those who serve their True Guru, rise from desire to desirelessness. ||5||

salok mahalaa 1 |

Salok, First Mehl:

ਜੇ ਰਤੁ ਲਗੈ ਕਪੜੈ ਜਾਮਾ ਹੋਇ ਪਲੀਤੁ ॥
je rat lagai kaparrai jaamaa hoe paleet |

If one's clothes are stained with blood, the garment becomes polluted.

ਜੋ ਰਤੁ ਪੀਵਹਿ ਮਾਣਸਾ ਤਿਨ ਕਿਉ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਚੀਤੁ ॥
jo rat peeveh maanasaa tin kiau niramal cheet |

Those who suck the blood of human beings-how can their consciousness be pure?

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਉ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਕਾ ਦਿਲਿ ਹਛੈ ਮੁਖਿ ਲੇਹੁ ॥
naanak naau khudaae kaa dil hachhai mukh lehu |

O Nanak, chant the Name of God, with heart-felt devotion.

ਅਵਰਿ ਦਿਵਾਜੇ ਦੁਨੀ ਕੇ ਝੂਠੇ ਅਮਲ ਕਰੇਹੁ ॥੧॥
avar divaaje dunee ke jhootthe amal karehu |1|

Everything else is just a pompous worldly show, and the practice of false deeds. ||1||

mahalaa 1 |

First Mehl:

ਜਾ ਹਉ ਨਾਹੀ ਤਾ ਕਿਆ ਆਖਾ ਕਿਹੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਵਾ ॥
jaa hau naahee taa kiaa aakhaa kihu naahee kiaa hovaa |

Since I am no one, what can I say? Since I am nothing, what can I be?

ਕੀਤਾ ਕਰਣਾ ਕਹਿਆ ਕਥਨਾ ਭਰਿਆ ਭਰਿ ਭਰਿ ਧੋਵਾਂ ॥
keetaa karanaa kahiaa kathanaa bhariaa bhar bhar dhovaan |

As He created me, so I act. As He causes me to speak, so I speak. I am full and overflowing with sins-if only I could wash them away!

ਆਪਿ ਨ ਬੁਝਾ ਲੋਕ ਬੁਝਾਈ ਐਸਾ ਆਗੂ ਹੋਵਾਂ ॥
aap na bujhaa lok bujhaaee aaisaa aagoo hovaan |

I do not understand myself, and yet I try to teach others. Such is the guide I am!

ਨਾਨਕ ਅੰਧਾ ਹੋਇ ਕੈ ਦਸੇ ਰਾਹੈ ਸਭਸੁ ਮੁਹਾਏ ਸਾਥੈ ॥
naanak andhaa hoe kai dase raahai sabhas muhaae saathai |

O Nanak, the one who is blind shows others the way, and misleads all his companions.

ਅਗੈ ਗਇਆ ਮੁਹੇ ਮੁਹਿ ਪਾਹਿ ਸੁ ਐਸਾ ਆਗੂ ਜਾਪੈ ॥੨॥
agai geaa muhe muhi paeh su aaisaa aagoo jaapai |2|

But, going to the world hereafter, he shall be beaten and kicked in the face; then, it will be obvious, what sort of guide he was! ||2||

ਮਾਹਾ ਰੁਤੀ ਸਭ ਤੂੰ ਘੜੀ ਮੂਰਤ ਵੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
maahaa rutee sabh toon gharree moorat veechaaraa |

Through all the months and the seasons, the minutes and the hours, I dwell upon You, O Lord.

ਤੂੰ ਗਣਤੈ ਕਿਨੈ ਨ ਪਾਇਓ ਸਚੇ ਅਲਖ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥
toon ganatai kinai na paaeio sache alakh apaaraa |

No one has attained You by clever calculations, O True, Unseen and Infinite Lord.

ਪੜਿਆ ਮੂਰਖੁ ਆਖੀਐ ਜਿਸੁ ਲਬੁ ਲੋਭੁ ਅਹੰਕਾਰਾ ॥
parriaa moorakh aakheeai jis lab lobh ahankaaraa |

That scholar who is full of greed, arrogant pride and egotism, is known to be a fool.

ਨਾਉ ਪੜੀਐ ਨਾਉ ਬੁਝੀਐ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਵੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
naau parreeai naau bujheeai guramatee veechaaraa |

So read the Name, and realize the Name, and contemplate the Guru's Teachings.

ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਨੁ ਖਟਿਆ ਭਗਤੀ ਭਰੇ ਭੰਡਾਰਾ ॥
guramatee naam dhan khattiaa bhagatee bhare bhanddaaraa |

Through the Guru's Teachings, I have earned the wealth of the Naam; I possess the storehouses, overflowing with devotion to the Lord.

ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੰਨਿਆ ਦਰਿ ਸਚੈ ਸਚਿਆਰਾ ॥
niramal naam maniaa dar sachai sachiaaraa |

Believing in the Immaculate Naam, one is hailed as true, in the True Court of the Lord.

ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਜੀਉ ਪਰਾਣੁ ਹੈ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥
jis daa jeeo paraan hai antar jot apaaraa |

The Divine Light of the Infinite Lord, who owns the soul and the breath of life, is deep within the inner being.

ਸਚਾ ਸਾਹੁ ਇਕੁ ਤੂੰ ਹੋਰੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਵਣਜਾਰਾ ॥੬॥
sachaa saahu ik toon hor jagat vanajaaraa |6|

You alone are the True Banker, O Lord; the rest of the world is just Your petty trader. ||6||
