ਸਰਮ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਦੁਇ ਸਸੁਰ ਭਏ ॥
saram surat due sasur bhe |

Modesty, humility and intuitive understanding are my mother-in-law and father-in-law;

ਕਰਣੀ ਕਾਮਣਿ ਕਰਿ ਮਨ ਲਏ ॥੨॥
karanee kaaman kar man le |2|

I have made good deeds my spouse. ||2||

ਸਾਹਾ ਸੰਜੋਗੁ ਵੀਆਹੁ ਵਿਜੋਗੁ ॥
saahaa sanjog veeaahu vijog |

Union with the Holy is my wedding date, and separation from the world is my marriage.

ਸਚੁ ਸੰਤਤਿ ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਜੋਗੁ ॥੩॥੩॥
sach santat kahu naanak jog |3|3|

Says Nanak, Truth is the child born of this Union. ||3||3||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 1 |

Gauree, First Mehl:

ਪਉਣੈ ਪਾਣੀ ਅਗਨੀ ਕਾ ਮੇਲੁ ॥
paunai paanee aganee kaa mel |

The union of air, water and fire

ਚੰਚਲ ਚਪਲ ਬੁਧਿ ਕਾ ਖੇਲੁ ॥
chanchal chapal budh kaa khel |

the body is the play-thing of the fickle and unsteady intellect.

ਨਉ ਦਰਵਾਜੇ ਦਸਵਾ ਦੁਆਰੁ ॥
nau daravaaje dasavaa duaar |

It has nine doors, and then there is the Tenth Gate.

ਬੁਝੁ ਰੇ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਏਹੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ॥੧॥
bujh re giaanee ehu beechaar |1|

Reflect upon this and understand it, O wise one. ||1||

ਕਥਤਾ ਬਕਤਾ ਸੁਨਤਾ ਸੋਈ ॥
kathataa bakataa sunataa soee |

The Lord is the One who speaks, teaches and listens.

ਆਪੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੇ ਸੁ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਹੋਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
aap beechaare su giaanee hoee |1| rahaau |

One who contemplates his own self is truly wise. ||1||Pause||

ਦੇਹੀ ਮਾਟੀ ਬੋਲੈ ਪਉਣੁ ॥
dehee maattee bolai paun |

The body is dust; the wind speaks through it.

ਬੁਝੁ ਰੇ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਮੂਆ ਹੈ ਕਉਣੁ ॥
bujh re giaanee mooaa hai kaun |

Understand, O wise one, who has died.

ਮੂਈ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਬਾਦੁ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੁ ॥
mooee surat baad ahankaar |

Awareness, conflict and ego have died,

ਓਹੁ ਨ ਮੂਆ ਜੋ ਦੇਖਣਹਾਰੁ ॥੨॥
ohu na mooaa jo dekhanahaar |2|

but the One who sees does not die. ||2||

ਜੈ ਕਾਰਣਿ ਤਟਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਜਾਹੀ ॥
jai kaaran tatt teerath jaahee |

For the sake of it, you journey to sacred shrines and holy rivers;

ਰਤਨ ਪਦਾਰਥ ਘਟ ਹੀ ਮਾਹੀ ॥
ratan padaarath ghatt hee maahee |

but this priceless jewel is within your own heart.

ਪੜਿ ਪੜਿ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਬਾਦੁ ਵਖਾਣੈ ॥
parr parr panddit baad vakhaanai |

The Pandits, the religious scholars, read and read endlessly; they stir up arguments and controversies,

ਭੀਤਰਿ ਹੋਦੀ ਵਸਤੁ ਨ ਜਾਣੈ ॥੩॥
bheetar hodee vasat na jaanai |3|

but they do not know the secret deep within. ||3||

ਹਉ ਨ ਮੂਆ ਮੇਰੀ ਮੁਈ ਬਲਾਇ ॥
hau na mooaa meree muee balaae |

I have not died - that evil nature within me has died.

ਓਹੁ ਨ ਮੂਆ ਜੋ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਇ ॥
ohu na mooaa jo rahiaa samaae |

The One who is pervading everywhere does not die.

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਦਿਖਾਇਆ ॥
kahu naanak gur braham dikhaaeaa |

Says Nanak, the Guru has revealed God to me,

ਮਰਤਾ ਜਾਤਾ ਨਦਰਿ ਨ ਆਇਆ ॥੪॥੪॥
marataa jaataa nadar na aaeaa |4|4|

and now I see that there is no such thing as birth or death. ||4||4||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਦਖਣੀ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 1 dakhanee |

Gauree, First Mehl, Dakhanee:

ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਬੂਝੈ ਮਾਨੈ ਨਾਉ ॥
sun sun boojhai maanai naau |

I am forever a sacrifice to the one who listens and hears,

ਤਾ ਕੈ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੈ ਜਾਉ ॥
taa kai sad balihaarai jaau |

Who understands and believes in the Name.

ਆਪਿ ਭੁਲਾਏ ਠਉਰ ਨ ਠਾਉ ॥
aap bhulaae tthaur na tthaau |

When the Lord Himself leads us astray, there is no other place of rest for us to find.

ਤੂੰ ਸਮਝਾਵਹਿ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਉ ॥੧॥

You impart understanding, and You unite us in Your Union. ||1||

ਨਾਮੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਚਲੈ ਮੈ ਨਾਲਿ ॥
naam milai chalai mai naal |

I obtain the Naam, which shall go along with me in the end.

ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਬਾਧੀ ਸਭ ਕਾਲਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

Sexual desire and anger are the wounds of the soul.

ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਚਲੇ ਮਨਿ ਖੋਟ ॥੨॥
naam visaar chale man khott |2|

The evil-minded ones forget the Naam, and then depart. ||2||

ਸਾਚੇ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸਾਚੀ ਸੀਖ ॥
saache gur kee saachee seekh |

True are the Teachings of the True Guru.

ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਸੀਤਲੁ ਸਾਚੁ ਪਰੀਖ ॥
tan man seetal saach pareekh |

The body and mind are cooled and soothed, by the touchstone of Truth.

ਜਲ ਪੁਰਾਇਨਿ ਰਸ ਕਮਲ ਪਰੀਖ ॥
jal puraaein ras kamal pareekh |

This is the true mark of wisdom: that one remains detached, like the water-lily, or the lotus upon the water.

ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੇ ਮੀਠੇ ਰਸ ਈਖ ॥੩॥
sabad rate meetthe ras eekh |3|

Attuned to the Word of the Shabad, one becomes sweet, like the juice of the sugar cane. ||3||

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸੰਜੋਗੀ ਗੜਿ ਦਸ ਦੁਆਰ ॥

The Lord Himself is the merchandise, and He Himself is the trader.

O Nanak, through the Naam, the Name of the Lord, we are adorned and rejuvenated. ||4||5||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 1 |

Gauree, First Mehl:

ਜਾਤੋ ਜਾਇ ਕਹਾ ਤੇ ਆਵੈ ॥
jaato jaae kahaa te aavai |

How can we know where we came from?

ਕਹ ਉਪਜੈ ਕਹ ਜਾਇ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥
kah upajai kah jaae samaavai |

Where did we originate, and where will we go and merge?

ਕਿਉ ਬਾਧਿਓ ਕਿਉ ਮੁਕਤੀ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
kiau baadhio kiau mukatee paavai |

How are we bound, and how do we obtain liberation?

ਕਿਉ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
kiau abinaasee sahaj samaavai |1|

How do we merge with intuitive ease into the Eternal, Imperishable Lord? ||1||

ਨਾਮੁ ਰਿਦੈ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ॥
naam ridai amrit mukh naam |

With the Naam in the heart and the Ambrosial Naam on our lips,

ਨਰਹਰ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਰਹਰ ਨਿਹਕਾਮੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

guramukh mukato bandh na paae |

As Gurmukh, we are liberated, and are not bound.

ਸਬਦੁ ਬੀਚਾਰਿ ਛੁਟੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਇ ॥੨॥
sabad beechaar chhuttai har naae |2|

Contemplating the Word of the Shabad, we are emancipated through the Name of the Lord. ||2||

ਤਰਵਰ ਪੰਖੀ ਬਹੁ ਨਿਸਿ ਬਾਸੁ ॥
taravar pankhee bahu nis baas |

At night, lots of birds settle on the tree.

ਸੁਖ ਦੁਖੀਆ ਮਨਿ ਮੋਹ ਵਿਣਾਸੁ ॥
sukh dukheea man moh vinaas |

Some are happy, and some are sad. Caught in the desires of the mind, they perish.

ਸਾਝ ਬਿਹਾਗ ਤਕਹਿ ਆਗਾਸੁ ॥
saajh bihaag takeh aagaas |

And when the life-night comes to its end, then they look to the sky.

ਦਹ ਦਿਸਿ ਧਾਵਹਿ ਕਰਮਿ ਲਿਖਿਆਸੁ ॥੩॥
dah dis dhaaveh karam likhiaas |3|

They fly away in all ten directions, according to their pre-ordained destiny. ||3||
