Meeting the True One, Truth wells up. The truthful are absorbed into the True Lord.

ਸੁਰਤਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਤਿ ਊਗਵੈ ਗੁਰਬਚਨੀ ਭਉ ਖਾਇ ॥
surat hovai pat aoogavai gurabachanee bhau khaae |

Intuitive understanding is obtained and one is welcomed with honor, through the Guru's Word, filled with the Fear of God.

Without the Fear of God, how can anyone become fearless? Become Gurmukh, and immerse yourself in the Shabad. ||1||Pause||

ਕੇਤਾ ਆਖਣੁ ਆਖੀਐ ਆਖਣਿ ਤੋਟਿ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥
ketaa aakhan aakheeai aakhan tott na hoe |

How can we describe Him with words? There is no end to the descriptions of Him.

ਮੰਗਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਕੇਤੜੇ ਦਾਤਾ ਏਕੋ ਸੋਇ ॥
mangan vaale ketarre daataa eko soe |

There are so many beggars, but He is the only Giver.

jo tis bhaanaa so theeai avar na karanaa jaae |3|

Whatever pleases Him comes to pass; nothing else can be done. ||3||

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਵਸਤੁ ਵੇਸਾਹੀਐ ਸਚੁ ਵਖਰੁ ਸਚੁ ਰਾਸਿ ॥

By actions committed under the influence of the three qualities, hope and anxiety are produced.

ਕਿਉ ਗੁਰ ਬਿਨੁ ਤ੍ਰਿਕੁਟੀ ਛੁਟਸੀ ਸਹਜਿ ਮਿਲਿਐ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
kiau gur bin trikuttee chhuttasee sahaj miliaai sukh hoe |

Without the Guru, how can anyone be released from these three qualities? Through intuitive wisdom, we meet with Him and find peace.

ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਮਹਲੁ ਪਛਾਣੀਐ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਮਲੁ ਧੋਇ ॥੩॥

Contemplate the One Word of the Shabad, and abandon other hopes.

naanak dekh dikhaaeeai hau sad balihaarai jaas |4|12|

O Nanak, I am forever a sacrifice to the one who beholds, and inspires others to behold Him. ||4||12||

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥

Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਧ੍ਰਿਗੁ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਦੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਮੁਠੀ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ॥
dhrig jeevan dohaaganee mutthee doojai bhaae |

The life of the discarded bride is cursed. She is deceived by the love of duality.

ਕਲਰ ਕੇਰੀ ਕੰਧ ਜਿਉ ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਕਿਰਿ ਢਹਿ ਪਾਇ ॥
kalar keree kandh jiau ahinis kir dteh paae |

Like a wall of sand, day and night, she crumbles, and eventually, she breaks down altogether.
