The Enticer of hearts has enticed her, and her sense of duality has been easily dispelled.
Her sense of duality has been easily dispelled, and the soul-bride obtains her Husband Lord; following the Guru's Teachings, she makes merry.
This body is filled to overflowing with falsehood, deception and the commission of sins.

Adorned with the True Word of Your Shabad, she conquers her ego, and as Gurmukh, her affairs are resolved.
Throughout the ages, the One Lord is True; through the Guru's Wisdom, He is known.
The self-willed manmukh is engrossed in sexual desire, and tormented by emotional attachment. With whom should she lodge her complaints?

The bride is foolish, ignorant and unworthy. Her Husband Lord is Unapproachable and Incomparable.
He Himself unites us in His Union; He Himself forgives us.
The soul-bride's Beloved Husband Lord is the Forgiver of sins; He is contained in each and every heart.
The True Guru has made me understand this understanding, that the Lord is obtained through love, affection and loving devotion.
She remains forever in bliss, day and night; she remains immersed in His Love, night and day.
O Nanak, that soul-bride who obtains the nine treasures, intuitively obtains her Husband Lord. ||4||3||
Gauree, Third Mehl:
The sea of Maya is agitated and turbulent; how can anyone cross over this terrifying world-ocean?
Make the Lord's Name your boat, and install the Word of the Shabad as the boatman.
With the Shabad installed as the boatman, the Lord Himself shall take you across. In this way, the difficult ocean is crossed.
The Gurmukh obtains devotional worship of the Lord, and thus remains dead while yet alive.
In an instant, the Lord's Name erases his sinful mistakes, and his body becomes pure.
O Nanak, through the Lord's Name, emancipation is obtained, and the slag iron is transformed into gold. ||1||
