In Dhanaasaree, the soul-bride is known to be wealthy, O Siblings of Destiny, when she works for the True Guru.
She surrenders her body, mind and soul, O Siblings of Destiny, and lives according to the Hukam of His Command.
I sit where He wishes me to sit, O Siblings of Destiny; wherever He sends me, I go.
There is no other wealth as great, O Siblings of Destiny; such is the greatness of the True Name.
I sing forever the Glorious Praises of the True Lord; I shall remain with the True One forever.
So wear the clothes of His Glorious Virtues and goodness, O Siblings of Destiny; eat and enjoy the flavor of your own honor.
How can I praise Him, O Siblings of Destiny? I am a sacrifice to the Blessed Vision of His Darshan.
Great is the Glorious Greatness of the True Guru, O Siblings of Destiny; if one is blessed with good karma, He is found.
Some do not know how to submit to the Hukam of His Command, O Siblings of Destiny; they wander around lost in the love of duality.
They find no place of rest in the Sangat, O Siblings of Destiny; they find no place to sit.
Nanak: they alone submit to His Command, O Siblings of Destiny, who are pre-destined to live the Name.
I am a sacrifice to them, O Siblings of Destiny, I am forever a sacrifice to them. ||51||

They are given a place in the Court of the True Lord; they are absorbed in the True Lord.
O Nanak, without the True Guru, the True Lord is not found. The self-willed manmukhs leave, wandering around lost. ||53||

O Nanak, the Gurmukhs are peaceful and tranquil; they enshrine the Naam, the Name of the Lord, within their hearts. ||54||
O rainbird, chirp the True Name, and let yourself be attuned to the True Lord.
Your word shall be accepted and approved, if you speak as Gurmukh.
Remember the Shabad, and your thirst shall be relieved; surrender to the Will of the Lord.
