The One Lord is the Creator of all things, the Cause of causes.
He Himself is wisdom, contemplation and discerning understanding.
He is not far away; He is near at hand, with all.
So praise the True One, O Nanak, with love! ||8||1||

cut their connections with the five passions.
They keep the ten organs under their control;
their souls are enlightened. ||1||
