Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Page - 226


ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਚੀਤੁ ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਡੋਲਾਇ ॥
par ghar cheet manamukh ddolaae |

The self-willed manmukh is lured by another man's wife.

ਗਲਿ ਜੇਵਰੀ ਧੰਧੈ ਲਪਟਾਇ ॥
gal jevaree dhandhai lapattaae |

The noose is around his neck, and he is entangled in petty conflicts.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਛੂਟਸਿ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ॥੫॥
guramukh chhoottas har gun gaae |5|

The Gurmukh is emancipated, singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||5||

ਜਿਉ ਤਨੁ ਬਿਧਵਾ ਪਰ ਕਉ ਦੇਈ ॥
jiau tan bidhavaa par kau deee |

The lonely widow gives her body to a stranger;

ਕਾਮਿ ਦਾਮਿ ਚਿਤੁ ਪਰ ਵਸਿ ਸੇਈ ॥
kaam daam chit par vas seee |

she allows her mind to be controlled by others for lust or money

ਬਿਨੁ ਪਿਰ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਨ ਕਬਹੂੰ ਹੋਈ ॥੬॥
bin pir tripat na kabahoon hoee |6|

, but without her husband, she is never satisfied. ||6||

ਪੜਿ ਪੜਿ ਪੋਥੀ ਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਪਾਠਾ ॥
parr parr pothee sinmrit paatthaa |

You may read, recite and study the scriptures,

ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਣ ਪੜੈ ਸੁਣਿ ਥਾਟਾ ॥
bed puraan parrai sun thaattaa |

The Simritees, Vedas and Puraanas;

ਬਿਨੁ ਰਸ ਰਾਤੇ ਮਨੁ ਬਹੁ ਨਾਟਾ ॥੭॥
bin ras raate man bahu naattaa |7|

but without being imbued with the Lord's essence, the mind wanders endlessly. ||7||

ਜਿਉ ਚਾਤ੍ਰਿਕ ਜਲ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਿਆਸਾ ॥
jiau chaatrik jal prem piaasaa |

As the rainbird thirsts longingly for the drop of rain,

ਜਿਉ ਮੀਨਾ ਜਲ ਮਾਹਿ ਉਲਾਸਾ ॥
jiau meenaa jal maeh ulaasaa |

and as the fish delights in the water,

ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਪੀ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਾਸਾ ॥੮॥੧੧॥
naanak har ras pee tripataasaa |8|11|

Nanak is satisfied by the sublime essence of the Lord. ||8||11||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 1 |

Gauree, First Mehl:

ਹਠੁ ਕਰਿ ਮਰੈ ਨ ਲੇਖੈ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
hatth kar marai na lekhai paavai |

One who dies in stubbornness shall not be approved,

ਵੇਸ ਕਰੈ ਬਹੁ ਭਸਮ ਲਗਾਵੈ ॥
ves karai bahu bhasam lagaavai |

even though he may wear religious robes and smear his body all over with ashes.

ਨਾਮੁ ਬਿਸਾਰਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਪਛੁਤਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
naam bisaar bahur pachhutaavai |1|

Forgetting the Naam, the Name of the Lord, he comes to regret and repent in the end. ||1||

ਤੂੰ ਮਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਤੂੰ ਮਨਿ ਸੂਖ ॥
toon man har jeeo toon man sookh |

Believe in the Dear Lord, and you shall find peace of mind.

ਨਾਮੁ ਬਿਸਾਰਿ ਸਹਹਿ ਜਮ ਦੂਖ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
naam bisaar saheh jam dookh |1| rahaau |

Forgetting the Naam, you shall have to endure the pain of death. ||1||Pause||

ਚੋਆ ਚੰਦਨ ਅਗਰ ਕਪੂਰਿ ॥
choaa chandan agar kapoor |

The smell of musk, sandalwood and camphor,

ਮਾਇਆ ਮਗਨੁ ਪਰਮ ਪਦੁ ਦੂਰਿ ॥
maaeaa magan param pad door |

and the intoxication of Maya, takes one far away from the state of supreme dignity.

ਨਾਮਿ ਬਿਸਾਰਿਐ ਸਭੁ ਕੂੜੋ ਕੂਰਿ ॥੨॥
naam bisaariaai sabh koorro koor |2|

Forgetting the Naam, one becomes the most false of all the false. ||2||

ਨੇਜੇ ਵਾਜੇ ਤਖਤਿ ਸਲਾਮੁ ॥
neje vaaje takhat salaam |

Lances and swords, marching bands, thrones and the salutes of others

ਅਧਕੀ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਵਿਆਪੈ ਕਾਮੁ ॥
adhakee trisanaa viaapai kaam |

only increase his desire; he is engrossed in sexual desire.

ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਚੇ ਭਗਤਿ ਨ ਨਾਮੁ ॥੩॥
bin har jaache bhagat na naam |3|

Without seeking the Lord, neither devotional worship nor the Naam are obtained. ||3||

ਵਾਦਿ ਅਹੰਕਾਰਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਮੇਲਾ ॥
vaad ahankaar naahee prabh melaa |

Union with God is not obtained by arguments and egotism.

ਮਨੁ ਦੇ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਸੁਹੇਲਾ ॥
man de paaveh naam suhelaa |

But by offering your mind, the comfort of the Naam is obtained.

ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ਅਗਿਆਨੁ ਦੁਹੇਲਾ ॥੪॥
doojai bhaae agiaan duhelaa |4|

In the love of duality and ignorance, you shall suffer. ||4||

ਬਿਨੁ ਦਮ ਕੇ ਸਉਦਾ ਨਹੀ ਹਾਟ ॥
bin dam ke saudaa nahee haatt |

Without money, you cannot buy anything in the store.

ਬਿਨੁ ਬੋਹਿਥ ਸਾਗਰ ਨਹੀ ਵਾਟ ॥
bin bohith saagar nahee vaatt |

Without a boat, you cannot cross over the ocean.

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਸੇਵੇ ਘਾਟੇ ਘਾਟਿ ॥੫॥
bin gur seve ghaatte ghaatt |5|

Without serving the Guru, everything is lost. ||5||

ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਜਿ ਵਾਟ ਦਿਖਾਵੈ ॥
tis kau vaahu vaahu ji vaatt dikhaavai |

Waaho! Waaho! - Hail, hail, to the one who shows us the Way.

ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਜਿ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਣਾਵੈ ॥
tis kau vaahu vaahu ji sabad sunaavai |

Waaho! Waaho! - Hail, hail, to the one who teaches the Word of the Shabad.

ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਜਿ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਵੈ ॥੬॥
tis kau vaahu vaahu ji mel milaavai |6|

Waaho! Waaho! - Hail, hail, to the one who unites me in the Lord's Union. ||6||

ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਇਹੁ ਜੀਉ ॥
vaahu vaahu tis kau jis kaa ihu jeeo |

Waaho! Waaho! - Hail, hail, to the one who is the Keeper of this soul.

ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਮਥਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਉ ॥
gurasabadee math amrit peeo |

Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, contemplate this Ambrosial Nectar.

ਨਾਮ ਵਡਾਈ ਤੁਧੁ ਭਾਣੈ ਦੀਉ ॥੭॥
naam vaddaaee tudh bhaanai deeo |7|

The Glorious Greatness of the Naam is bestowed according to the Pleasure of Your Will. ||7||

ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਕਿਉ ਜੀਵਾ ਮਾਇ ॥
naam binaa kiau jeevaa maae |

Without the Naam, how can I live, O mother?

ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਜਪਤੁ ਰਹਉ ਤੇਰੀ ਸਰਣਾਇ ॥
anadin japat rhau teree saranaae |

Night and day, I chant it; I remain in the Protection of Your Sanctuary.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮਿ ਰਤੇ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਇ ॥੮॥੧੨॥
naanak naam rate pat paae |8|12|

O Nanak, attuned to the Naam, honor is attained. ||8||12||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 1 |

Gauree, First Mehl:

ਹਉਮੈ ਕਰਤ ਭੇਖੀ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
haumai karat bhekhee nahee jaaniaa |

Acting in egotism, the Lord is not known, even by wearing religious robes.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਵਿਰਲੇ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥੧॥
guramukh bhagat virale man maaniaa |1|

How rare is that Gurmukh, who surrenders his mind in devotional worship. ||1||

ਹਉ ਹਉ ਕਰਤ ਨਹੀ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਈਐ ॥
hau hau karat nahee sach paaeeai |

By actions done in egotism, selfishness and conceit, the True Lord is not obtained.

ਹਉਮੈ ਜਾਇ ਪਰਮ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਈਐ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
haumai jaae param pad paaeeai |1| rahaau |

But when egotism departs, then the state of supreme dignity is obtained. ||1||Pause||

ਹਉਮੈ ਕਰਿ ਰਾਜੇ ਬਹੁ ਧਾਵਹਿ ॥
haumai kar raaje bahu dhaaveh |

The kings act in egotism, and undertake all sorts of expeditions.

ਹਉਮੈ ਖਪਹਿ ਜਨਮਿ ਮਰਿ ਆਵਹਿ ॥੨॥
haumai khapeh janam mar aaveh |2|

But through their egotism, they are ruined; they die, only to be reborn over and over again. ||2||

ਹਉਮੈ ਨਿਵਰੈ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੁ ਵੀਚਾਰੈ ॥
haumai nivarai gurasabad veechaarai |

Egotism is overcome only by contemplating the Word of the Guru's Shabad.

ਚੰਚਲ ਮਤਿ ਤਿਆਗੈ ਪੰਚ ਸੰਘਾਰੈ ॥੩॥
chanchal mat tiaagai panch sanghaarai |3|

One who restrains his fickle mind subdues the five passions. ||3||

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਸਾਚੁ ਸਹਜ ਘਰਿ ਆਵਹਿ ॥
antar saach sahaj ghar aaveh |

With the True Lord deep within the self, the Celestial Mansion is intuitively found.

ਰਾਜਨੁ ਜਾਣਿ ਪਰਮ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਵਹਿ ॥੪॥
raajan jaan param gat paaveh |4|

Understanding the Sovereign Lord, the state of supreme dignity is obtained. ||4||

ਸਚੁ ਕਰਣੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਭਰਮੁ ਚੁਕਾਵੈ ॥
sach karanee gur bharam chukaavai |

The Guru dispels the doubts of those whose actions are true.

ਨਿਰਭਉ ਕੈ ਘਰਿ ਤਾੜੀ ਲਾਵੈ ॥੫॥
nirbhau kai ghar taarree laavai |5|

They focus their attention on the Home of the Fearless Lord. ||5||

ਹਉ ਹਉ ਕਰਿ ਮਰਣਾ ਕਿਆ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
hau hau kar maranaa kiaa paavai |

Those who act in egotism, selfishness and conceit die; what do they gain?

pooraa gur bhette so jhagar chukaavai |6|

Those who meet the Perfect Guru are rid of all conflicts. ||6||

ਜੇਤੀ ਹੈ ਤੇਤੀ ਕਿਹੁ ਨਾਹੀ ॥
