Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Page - 1411


ਕੀਚੜਿ ਹਾਥੁ ਨ ਬੂਡਈ ਏਕਾ ਨਦਰਿ ਨਿਹਾਲਿ ॥
keecharr haath na booddee ekaa nadar nihaal |

One who sees the One and Only Lord with his eyes - his hands shall not get muddy and dirty.

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਉਬਰੇ ਗੁਰੁ ਸਰਵਰੁ ਸਚੀ ਪਾਲਿ ॥੮॥
naanak guramukh ubare gur saravar sachee paal |8|

O Nanak, the Gurmukhs are saved; the Guru has surrounded the ocean with the embankment of Truth. ||8||

ਅਗਨਿ ਮਰੈ ਜਲੁ ਲੋੜਿ ਲਹੁ ਵਿਣੁ ਗੁਰ ਨਿਧਿ ਜਲੁ ਨਾਹਿ ॥
agan marai jal lorr lahu vin gur nidh jal naeh |

If you wish to put out the fire, then look for water; without the Guru, the ocean of water is not found.

ਜਨਮਿ ਮਰੈ ਭਰਮਾਈਐ ਜੇ ਲਖ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਹਿ ॥
janam marai bharamaaeeai je lakh karam kamaeh |

You shall continue to wander lost in reincarnation through birth and death, even if you do thousands of other deeds.

ਜਮੁ ਜਾਗਾਤਿ ਨ ਲਗਈ ਜੇ ਚਲੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਭਾਇ ॥
jam jaagaat na lagee je chalai satigur bhaae |

But you shall not be taxed by the Messenger of Death, if you walk in harmony with the Will of the True Guru.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਅਮਰ ਪਦੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਹਰਿ ਮੇਲੈ ਮੇਲਾਇ ॥੯॥
naanak niramal amar pad gur har melai melaae |9|

O Nanak, the immaculate, immortal status is obtained, and the Guru will unite you in the Lord's Union. ||9||

ਕਲਰ ਕੇਰੀ ਛਪੜੀ ਕਊਆ ਮਲਿ ਮਲਿ ਨਾਇ ॥
kalar keree chhaparree kaooaa mal mal naae |

The crow rubs and washes itself in the mud puddle.

ਮਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਮੈਲਾ ਅਵਗੁਣੀ ਚਿੰਜੁ ਭਰੀ ਗੰਧੀ ਆਇ ॥
man tan mailaa avagunee chinj bharee gandhee aae |

Its mind and body are polluted with its own mistakes and demerits, and its beak is filled with dirt.

ਸਰਵਰੁ ਹੰਸਿ ਨ ਜਾਣਿਆ ਕਾਗ ਕੁਪੰਖੀ ਸੰਗਿ ॥
saravar hans na jaaniaa kaag kupankhee sang |

The swan in the pool associated with the crow, not knowing that it was evil.

ਸਾਕਤ ਸਿਉ ਐਸੀ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਹੈ ਬੂਝਹੁ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਰੰਗਿ ॥
saakat siau aaisee preet hai boojhahu giaanee rang |

Such is the love of the faithless cynic; understand this, O spiritually wise ones, through love and devotion.

ਸੰਤ ਸਭਾ ਜੈਕਾਰੁ ਕਰਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਉ ॥
sant sabhaa jaikaar kar guramukh karam kamaau |

So proclaim the victory of the Society of the Saints, and act as Gurmukh.

ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਨੑਾਵਣੁ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਤੀਰਥੁ ਦਰੀਆਉ ॥੧੦॥
niramal naavan naanakaa gur teerath dareeaau |10|

Immaculate and pure is that cleansing bath, O Nanak, at the sacred shrine of the Guru's river. ||10||

ਜਨਮੇ ਕਾ ਫਲੁ ਕਿਆ ਗਣੀ ਜਾਂ ਹਰਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਨ ਭਾਉ ॥
janame kaa fal kiaa ganee jaan har bhagat na bhaau |

What should I account as the rewards of this human life, if one does not feel love and devotion to the Lord?

ਪੈਧਾ ਖਾਧਾ ਬਾਦਿ ਹੈ ਜਾਂ ਮਨਿ ਦੂਜਾ ਭਾਉ ॥
paidhaa khaadhaa baad hai jaan man doojaa bhaau |

Wearing clothes and eating food is useless, if the mind is filled with the love of duality.

ਵੇਖਣੁ ਸੁਨਣਾ ਝੂਠੁ ਹੈ ਮੁਖਿ ਝੂਠਾ ਆਲਾਉ ॥
vekhan sunanaa jhootth hai mukh jhootthaa aalaau |

Seeing and hearing is false, if one speaks lies.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਲਾਹਿ ਤੂ ਹੋਰੁ ਹਉਮੈ ਆਵਉ ਜਾਉ ॥੧੧॥
naanak naam salaeh too hor haumai aavau jaau |11|

O Nanak, praise the Naam, the Name of the Lord; everything else is coming and going in egotism. ||11||

ਹੈਨਿ ਵਿਰਲੇ ਨਾਹੀ ਘਣੇ ਫੈਲ ਫਕੜੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ॥੧੨॥
hain virale naahee ghane fail fakarr sansaar |12|

The Saints are few and far between; everything else in the world is just a pompous show. ||12||

ਨਾਨਕ ਲਗੀ ਤੁਰਿ ਮਰੈ ਜੀਵਣ ਨਾਹੀ ਤਾਣੁ ॥
naanak lagee tur marai jeevan naahee taan |

O Nanak, one who is struck by the Lord dies instantaneously; the power to live is lost.

ਚੋਟੈ ਸੇਤੀ ਜੋ ਮਰੈ ਲਗੀ ਸਾ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
chottai setee jo marai lagee saa paravaan |

If someone dies by such a stroke, then he is accepted.

ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਲਾਏ ਤਿਸੁ ਲਗੈ ਲਗੀ ਤਾ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
jis no laae tis lagai lagee taa paravaan |

He alone is struck, who is struck by the Lord; after such a stroke, he is approved.

ਪਿਰਮ ਪੈਕਾਮੁ ਨ ਨਿਕਲੈ ਲਾਇਆ ਤਿਨਿ ਸੁਜਾਣਿ ॥੧੩॥
piram paikaam na nikalai laaeaa tin sujaan |13|

The arrow of love, shot by the All-knowing Lord, cannot be pulled out. ||13||

ਭਾਂਡਾ ਧੋਵੈ ਕਉਣੁ ਜਿ ਕਚਾ ਸਾਜਿਆ ॥
bhaanddaa dhovai kaun ji kachaa saajiaa |

Who can wash the unbaked clay pot?

ਧਾਤੂ ਪੰਜਿ ਰਲਾਇ ਕੂੜਾ ਪਾਜਿਆ ॥
dhaatoo panj ralaae koorraa paajiaa |

Joining the five elements together, the Lord made a false cover.

ਭਾਂਡਾ ਆਣਗੁ ਰਾਸਿ ਜਾਂ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵਸੀ ॥
bhaanddaa aanag raas jaan tis bhaavasee |

When it pleases Him, He makes it right.

ਪਰਮ ਜੋਤਿ ਜਾਗਾਇ ਵਾਜਾ ਵਾਵਸੀ ॥੧੪॥
param jot jaagaae vaajaa vaavasee |14|

The supreme light shines forth, and the celestial song vibrates and resounds. ||14||

ਮਨਹੁ ਜਿ ਅੰਧੇ ਘੂਪ ਕਹਿਆ ਬਿਰਦੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਨੀ ॥
manahu ji andhe ghoop kahiaa birad na jaananee |

Those who are totally blind in their minds, do not have the integrity to keep their word.

ਮਨਿ ਅੰਧੈ ਊਂਧੈ ਕਵਲ ਦਿਸਨਿ ਖਰੇ ਕਰੂਪ ॥
man andhai aoondhai kaval disan khare karoop |

With their blind minds, and their upside-down heart-lotus, they look totally ugly.

ਇਕਿ ਕਹਿ ਜਾਣਨਿ ਕਹਿਆ ਬੁਝਨਿ ਤੇ ਨਰ ਸੁਘੜ ਸਰੂਪ ॥
eik keh jaanan kahiaa bujhan te nar sugharr saroop |

Some know how to speak and understand what they are told. Those people are wise and good-looking.

ਇਕਨਾ ਨਾਦੁ ਨ ਬੇਦੁ ਨ ਗੀਅ ਰਸੁ ਰਸੁ ਕਸੁ ਨ ਜਾਣੰਤਿ ॥
eikanaa naad na bed na geea ras ras kas na jaanant |

Some do not know the Sound-current of the Naad, spiritual wisdom or the joy of song. They do not even understand good and bad.

ਇਕਨਾ ਸਿਧਿ ਨ ਬੁਧਿ ਨ ਅਕਲਿ ਸਰ ਅਖਰ ਕਾ ਭੇਉ ਨ ਲਹੰਤਿ ॥
eikanaa sidh na budh na akal sar akhar kaa bheo na lahant |

Some have no idea of perfection, wisdom or understanding; they know nothing about the mystery of the Word.

ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਨਰ ਅਸਲਿ ਖਰ ਜਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਣ ਗਰਬੁ ਕਰੰਤ ॥੧੫॥
naanak te nar asal khar ji bin gun garab karant |15|

O Nanak, those people are really donkeys; they have no virtue or merit, but still, they are very proud. ||15||

ਸੋ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਣੁ ਜੋ ਬਿੰਦੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ॥
so brahaman jo bindai braham |

He alone is a Brahmin, who knows God.

ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਕਮਾਵੈ ਕਰਮੁ ॥
jap tap sanjam kamaavai karam |

He chants and meditates, and practices austerity and good deeds.

ਸੀਲ ਸੰਤੋਖ ਕਾ ਰਖੈ ਧਰਮੁ ॥
seel santokh kaa rakhai dharam |

He keeps to the Dharma, with faith, humility and contentment.

ਬੰਧਨ ਤੋੜੈ ਹੋਵੈ ਮੁਕਤੁ ॥
bandhan torrai hovai mukat |

Breaking his bonds, he is liberated.

ਸੋਈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਣੁ ਪੂਜਣ ਜੁਗਤੁ ॥੧੬॥
soee brahaman poojan jugat |16|

Such a Brahmin is worthy of being worshipped. ||16||

ਖਤ੍ਰੀ ਸੋ ਜੁ ਕਰਮਾ ਕਾ ਸੂਰੁ ॥
khatree so ju karamaa kaa soor |

He alone is a Kh'shaatriyaa, who is a hero in good deeds.

ਪੁੰਨ ਦਾਨ ਕਾ ਕਰੈ ਸਰੀਰੁ ॥
pun daan kaa karai sareer |

He uses his body to give in charity;

ਖੇਤੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਬੀਜੈ ਦਾਨੁ ॥
khet pachhaanai beejai daan |

he understands his farm, and plants the seeds of generosity.

ਸੋ ਖਤ੍ਰੀ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
so khatree daragah paravaan |

Such a Kh'shaatriyaa is accepted in the Court of the Lord.

ਲਬੁ ਲੋਭੁ ਜੇ ਕੂੜੁ ਕਮਾਵੈ ॥
lab lobh je koorr kamaavai |

Whoever practices greed, possessiveness and falsehood,

ਅਪਣਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਆਪੇ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੧੭॥
apanaa keetaa aape paavai |17|

shall receive the fruits of his own labors. ||17||

ਤਨੁ ਨ ਤਪਾਇ ਤਨੂਰ ਜਿਉ ਬਾਲਣੁ ਹਡ ਨ ਬਾਲਿ ॥
tan na tapaae tanoor jiau baalan hadd na baal |

Do not heat your body like a furnace, or burn your bones like firewood.

ਸਿਰਿ ਪੈਰੀ ਕਿਆ ਫੇੜਿਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਿਰੀ ਸਮੑਾਲਿ ॥੧੮॥
sir pairee kiaa ferriaa andar piree samaal |18|

What have your head and feet done wrong? See your Husband Lord within yourself. ||18||
