ਇਸਤਰੀ ਪੁਰਖ ਕਾਮਿ ਵਿਆਪੇ ਜੀਉ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਬਿਧਿ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਣੀ ॥
eisataree purakh kaam viaape jeeo raam naam kee bidh nahee jaanee |

Men and women are obsessed with sex; they do not know the Way of the Lord's Name.

ਮਾਤ ਪਿਤਾ ਸੁਤ ਭਾਈ ਖਰੇ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਜੀਉ ਡੂਬਿ ਮੁਏ ਬਿਨੁ ਪਾਣੀ ॥
maat pitaa sut bhaaee khare piaare jeeo ddoob mue bin paanee |

Mother, father, children and siblings are very dear, but they drown, even without water.

ਡੂਬਿ ਮੁਏ ਬਿਨੁ ਪਾਣੀ ਗਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਣੀ ਹਉਮੈ ਧਾਤੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥
ddoob mue bin paanee gat nahee jaanee haumai dhaat sansaare |

They are drowned to death without water - they do not know the path of salvation, and they wander around the world in egotism.

ਜੋ ਆਇਆ ਸੋ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਜਾਸੀ ਉਬਰੇ ਗੁਰ ਵੀਚਾਰੇ ॥
jo aaeaa so sabh ko jaasee ubare gur veechaare |

All those who come into the world shall depart. Only those who contemplate the Guru shall be saved.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਾਣੈ ਆਪਿ ਤਰੈ ਕੁਲ ਤਾਰੇ ॥
guramukh hovai raam naam vakhaanai aap tarai kul taare |

Those who become Gurmukh and chant the Lord's Name, save themselves and save their families as well.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਸੈ ਘਟ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਮਿਲੇ ਪਿਆਰੇ ॥੨॥
naanak naam vasai ghatt antar guramat mile piaare |2|

O Nanak, the Naam, the Name of the Lord, abides deep within their hearts; through the Guru's Teachings, they meet their Beloved. ||2||

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋ ਥਿਰੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਜੀਉ ਬਾਜੀ ਹੈ ਸੰਸਾਰਾ ॥
raam naam bin ko thir naahee jeeo baajee hai sansaaraa |

Without the Lord's Name, nothing is stable. This world is just a drama.

ਦ੍ਰਿੜੁ ਭਗਤਿ ਸਚੀ ਜੀਉ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਾਪਾਰਾ ॥
drirr bhagat sachee jeeo raam naam vaapaaraa |

Implant true devotional worship within your heart, and trade in the Name of the Lord.

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਾਪਾਰਾ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰਾ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਧਨੁ ਪਾਈਐ ॥
raam naam vaapaaraa agam apaaraa guramatee dhan paaeeai |

Trade in the Lord's Name is infinite and unfathomable. Through the Guru's Teachings, this wealth is obtained.

ਸੇਵਾ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਇਹ ਸਾਚੀ ਵਿਚਹੁ ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਈਐ ॥
sevaa surat bhagat ih saachee vichahu aap gavaaeeai |

This selfless service, meditation and devotion is true, if you eliminate selfishness and conceit from within.

ਹਮ ਮਤਿ ਹੀਣ ਮੂਰਖ ਮੁਗਧ ਅੰਧੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਪਾਏ ॥
ham mat heen moorakh mugadh andhe satigur maarag paae |

I am senseless, foolish, idiotic and blind, but the True Guru has placed me on the Path.

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਸੁਹਾਵੇ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਏ ॥੩॥
naanak guramukh sabad suhaave anadin har gun gaae |3|

O Nanak, the Gurmukhs are adorned with the Shabad; night and day, they sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||3||

ਆਪਿ ਕਰਾਏ ਕਰੇ ਆਪਿ ਜੀਉ ਆਪੇ ਸਬਦਿ ਸਵਾਰੇ ॥
aap karaae kare aap jeeo aape sabad savaare |

He Himself acts, and inspires others to act; He Himself embellishes us with the Word of His Shabad.

ਆਪੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਆਪਿ ਸਬਦੁ ਜੀਉ ਜੁਗੁ ਜੁਗੁ ਭਗਤ ਪਿਆਰੇ ॥
aape satigur aap sabad jeeo jug jug bhagat piaare |

He Himself is the True Guru, and He Himself is the Shabad; in each and every age, He loves His devotees.

ਜੁਗੁ ਜੁਗੁ ਭਗਤ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਹਰਿ ਆਪਿ ਸਵਾਰੇ ਆਪੇ ਭਗਤੀ ਲਾਏ ॥
jug jug bhagat piaare har aap savaare aape bhagatee laae |

In age after age, He loves His devotees; the Lord Himself adorns them, and He Himself enjoins them to worship Him with devotion.

ਆਪੇ ਦਾਨਾ ਆਪੇ ਬੀਨਾ ਆਪੇ ਸੇਵ ਕਰਾਏ ॥
aape daanaa aape beenaa aape sev karaae |

He Himself is All-knowing, and He Himself is All-seeing; He inspires us to serve Him.

ਆਪੇ ਗੁਣਦਾਤਾ ਅਵਗੁਣ ਕਾਟੇ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਸਾਏ ॥
aape gunadaataa avagun kaatte hiradai naam vasaae |

He Himself is the Giver of merits, and the Destroyer of demerits; He causes His Name to dwell within our hearts.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ਸਚੇ ਵਿਟਹੁ ਆਪੇ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਏ ॥੪॥੪॥
naanak sad balihaaree sache vittahu aape kare karaae |4|4|

Nanak is forever a sacrifice to the True Lord, who Himself is the Doer, the Cause of causes. ||4||4||

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੩ ॥
gaurree mahalaa 3 |

Gauree, Third Mehl:

ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਿ ਪਿਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ॥
gur kee sevaa kar piraa jeeo har naam dhiaae |

Serve the Guru, O my dear soul; meditate on the Lord's Name.

ਮੰਞਹੁ ਦੂਰਿ ਨ ਜਾਹਿ ਪਿਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਘਰਿ ਬੈਠਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਏ ॥
manyahu door na jaeh piraa jeeo ghar baitthiaa har paae |

Do not leave me, O my dear soul - you shall find the Lord while sitting within the home of your own being.

ਘਰਿ ਬੈਠਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਏ ਸਦਾ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਏ ਸਹਜੇ ਸਤਿ ਸੁਭਾਏ ॥
ghar baitthiaa har paae sadaa chit laae sahaje sat subhaae |

You shall obtain the Lord while sitting within the home of your own being, focusing your consciousness constantly upon the Lord, with true intuitive faith.

ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਖਰੀ ਸੁਖਾਲੀ ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਆਪਿ ਕਰਾਏ ॥
gur kee sevaa kharee sukhaalee jis no aap karaae |

Serving the Guru brings great peace; they alone do it, whom the Lord inspires to do so.

ਨਾਮੋ ਬੀਜੇ ਨਾਮੋ ਜੰਮੈ ਨਾਮੋ ਮੰਨਿ ਵਸਾਏ ॥
naamo beeje naamo jamai naamo man vasaae |

They plant the seed of the Name, and the Name sprouts within; the Name abides within the mind.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਚਿ ਨਾਮਿ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਪੂਰਬਿ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਪਾਏ ॥੧॥
naanak sach naam vaddiaaee poorab likhiaa paae |1|

O Nanak, glorious greatness rests in the True Name; It is obtained by perfect pre-ordained destiny. ||1||

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੀਠਾ ਪਿਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਜਾ ਚਾਖਹਿ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਏ ॥
har kaa naam meetthaa piraa jeeo jaa chaakheh chit laae |

The Name of the Lord is so sweet, O my dear; taste it, and focus your consciousness on it.

ਰਸਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਚਾਖੁ ਮੁਯੇ ਜੀਉ ਅਨ ਰਸ ਸਾਦ ਗਵਾਏ ॥
rasanaa har ras chaakh muye jeeo an ras saad gavaae |

Taste the sublime essence of the Lord with your tongue, my dear, and renounce the pleasures of other tastes.

ਸਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਪਾਏ ਜਾ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਏ ਰਸਨਾ ਸਬਦਿ ਸੁਹਾਏ ॥
sadaa har ras paae jaa har bhaae rasanaa sabad suhaae |

You shall obtain the everlasting essence of the Lord when it pleases the Lord; your tongue shall be adorned with the Word of His Shabad.

ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਏ ਸਦਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਏ ਨਾਮਿ ਰਹੈ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਏ ॥
naam dhiaae sadaa sukh paae naam rahai liv laae |

Meditating on the Naam, the Name of the Lord, a lasting peace is obtained; so remain lovingly focused on the Naam.

ਨਾਮੇ ਉਪਜੈ ਨਾਮੇ ਬਿਨਸੈ ਨਾਮੇ ਸਚਿ ਸਮਾਏ ॥
naame upajai naame binasai naame sach samaae |

From the Naam we originate, and into the Naam we shall pass; through the Naam, we are absorbed in the Truth.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਪਾਈਐ ਆਪੇ ਲਏ ਲਵਾਏ ॥੨॥
naanak naam guramatee paaeeai aape le lavaae |2|

O Nanak, the Naam is obtained through the Guru's Teachings; He Himself attaches us to it. ||2||

ਏਹ ਵਿਡਾਣੀ ਚਾਕਰੀ ਪਿਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਧਨ ਛੋਡਿ ਪਰਦੇਸਿ ਸਿਧਾਏ ॥
eh viddaanee chaakaree piraa jeeo dhan chhodd parades sidhaae |

Working for someone else, O my dear, is like forsaking the bride, and going to foreign countries.

ਦੂਜੈ ਕਿਨੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਨ ਪਾਇਓ ਪਿਰਾ ਜੀਉ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਲੋਭਿ ਲੁਭਾਏ ॥
doojai kinai sukh na paaeio piraa jeeo bikhiaa lobh lubhaae |

In duality, no one has ever found peace, O my dear; you are greedy for corruption and greed.

ਬਿਖਿਆ ਲੋਭਿ ਲੁਭਾਏ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਏ ਓਹੁ ਕਿਉ ਕਰਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਏ ॥
bikhiaa lobh lubhaae bharam bhulaae ohu kiau kar sukh paae |

Greedy for corruption and greed, and deluded by doubt, how can anyone find peace?

ਚਾਕਰੀ ਵਿਡਾਣੀ ਖਰੀ ਦੁਖਾਲੀ ਆਪੁ ਵੇਚਿ ਧਰਮੁ ਗਵਾਏ ॥
chaakaree viddaanee kharee dukhaalee aap vech dharam gavaae |

Working for strangers is very painful; doing so, one sells himself and loses his faith in the Dharma.
