salok |

Salok:

ਗਨਿ ਮਿਨਿ ਦੇਖਹੁ ਮਨੈ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਰਪਰ ਚਲਨੋ ਲੋਗ ॥
gan min dekhahu manai maeh sarapar chalano log |

See, that even by calculating and scheming in their minds, people must surely depart in the end.

ਆਸ ਅਨਿਤ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਿਟੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਅਰੋਗ ॥੧॥
aas anit guramukh mittai naanak naam arog |1|

Hopes and desires for transitory things are erased for the Gurmukh; O Nanak, the Name alone brings true health. ||1||

Pauree:

ਗਗਾ ਗੋਬਿਦ ਗੁਣ ਰਵਹੁ ਸਾਸਿ ਸਾਸਿ ਜਪਿ ਨੀਤ ॥
gagaa gobid gun ravahu saas saas jap neet |

GAGGA: Chant the Glorious Praises of the Lord of the Universe with each and every breath; meditate on Him forever.

ਕਹਾ ਬਿਸਾਸਾ ਦੇਹ ਕਾ ਬਿਲਮ ਨ ਕਰਿਹੋ ਮੀਤ ॥
kahaa bisaasaa deh kaa bilam na kariho meet |

How can you rely on the body? Do not delay, my friend;

ਨਹ ਬਾਰਿਕ ਨਹ ਜੋਬਨੈ ਨਹ ਬਿਰਧੀ ਕਛੁ ਬੰਧੁ ॥
nah baarik nah jobanai nah biradhee kachh bandh |

there is nothing to stand in Death's way - neither in childhood, nor in youth, nor in old age.

ਓਹ ਬੇਰਾ ਨਹ ਬੂਝੀਐ ਜਉ ਆਇ ਪਰੈ ਜਮ ਫੰਧੁ ॥
oh beraa nah boojheeai jau aae parai jam fandh |

That time is not known, when the noose of Death shall come and fall on you.

ਗਿਆਨੀ ਧਿਆਨੀ ਚਤੁਰ ਪੇਖਿ ਰਹਨੁ ਨਹੀ ਇਹ ਠਾਇ ॥
giaanee dhiaanee chatur pekh rahan nahee ih tthaae |

See, that even spiritual scholars, those who meditate, and those who are clever shall not stay in this place.

ਛਾਡਿ ਛਾਡਿ ਸਗਲੀ ਗਈ ਮੂੜ ਤਹਾ ਲਪਟਾਹਿ ॥
chhaadd chhaadd sagalee gee moorr tahaa lapattaeh |

Only the fool clings to that, which everyone else has abandoned and left behind.

ਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਸਿਮਰਤ ਰਹੈ ਜਾਹੂ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਭਾਗ ॥
guraprasaad simarat rahai jaahoo masatak bhaag |

By Guru's Grace, one who has such good destiny written on his forehead remembers the Lord in meditation.

ਨਾਨਕ ਆਏ ਸਫਲ ਤੇ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਪ੍ਰਿਅਹਿ ਸੁਹਾਗ ॥੧੯॥
naanak aae safal te jaa kau prieh suhaag |19|

O Nanak, blessed and fruitful is the coming of those who obtain the Beloved Lord as their Husband. ||19||

ਸਲੋਕੁ ॥
salok |

Salok:

ਘੋਖੇ ਸਾਸਤ੍ਰ ਬੇਦ ਸਭ ਆਨ ਨ ਕਥਤਉ ਕੋਇ ॥
ghokhe saasatr bed sabh aan na kathtau koe |

I have searched all the Shaastras and the Vedas, and they say nothing except this:

ਆਦਿ ਜੁਗਾਦੀ ਹੁਣਿ ਹੋਵਤ ਨਾਨਕ ਏਕੈ ਸੋਇ ॥੧॥
aad jugaadee hun hovat naanak ekai soe |1|

"In the beginning, throughout the ages, now and forevermore, O Nanak, the One Lord alone exists." ||1||

ਘਘਾ ਘਾਲਹੁ ਮਨਹਿ ਏਹ ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਦੂਸਰ ਨਾਹਿ ॥
ghaghaa ghaalahu maneh eh bin har doosar naeh |

GHAGHA: Put this into your mind, that there is no one except the Lord.

ਨਹ ਹੋਆ ਨਹ ਹੋਵਨਾ ਜਤ ਕਤ ਓਹੀ ਸਮਾਹਿ ॥
nah hoaa nah hovanaa jat kat ohee samaeh |

There never was, and there never shall be. He is pervading everywhere.

ਘੂਲਹਿ ਤਉ ਮਨ ਜਉ ਆਵਹਿ ਸਰਨਾ ॥
ghooleh tau man jau aaveh saranaa |

You shall be absorbed into Him, O mind, if you come to His Sanctuary.

ਨਾਮ ਤਤੁ ਕਲਿ ਮਹਿ ਪੁਨਹਚਰਨਾ ॥
naam tat kal meh punahacharanaa |

In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, only the Naam, the Name of the Lord, shall be of any real use to you.

ਘਾਲਿ ਘਾਲਿ ਅਨਿਕ ਪਛੁਤਾਵਹਿ ॥
ghaal ghaal anik pachhutaaveh |

So many work and slave continually, but they come to regret and repent in the end.

ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਭਗਤਿ ਕਹਾ ਥਿਤਿ ਪਾਵਹਿ ॥
bin har bhagat kahaa thit paaveh |

Without devotional worship of the Lord, how can they find stability?

ਘੋਲਿ ਮਹਾ ਰਸੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਤਿਹ ਪੀਆ ॥
ghol mahaa ras amrit tih peea |

They alone taste the supreme essence, and drink in the Ambrosial Nectar,

ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰਿ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਦੀਆ ॥੨੦॥
naanak har gur jaa kau deea |20|

O Nanak, unto whom the Lord, the Guru, gives it. ||20||

ਸਲੋਕੁ ॥

Salok:

ਙਣਿ ਘਾਲੇ ਸਭ ਦਿਵਸ ਸਾਸ ਨਹ ਬਢਨ ਘਟਨ ਤਿਲੁ ਸਾਰ ॥
ngan ghaale sabh divas saas nah badtan ghattan til saar |

He has counted all the days and the breaths, and placed them in people's destiny; they do not increase or decrease one little bit.

ਜੀਵਨ ਲੋਰਹਿ ਭਰਮ ਮੋਹ ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇਊ ਗਵਾਰ ॥੧॥
jeevan loreh bharam moh naanak teaoo gavaar |1|

Those who long to live in doubt and emotional attachment, O Nanak, are total fools. ||1||

ngangaa ngraasai kaal tih jo saakat prabh keen |

NGANGA: Death seizes those whom God has made into faithless cynics.

ਅਨਿਕ ਜੋਨਿ ਜਨਮਹਿ ਮਰਹਿ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮੁ ਨ ਚੀਨ ॥
anik jon janameh mareh aatam raam na cheen |

They are born and they die, enduring countless incarnations; they do not realize the Lord, the Supreme Soul.

ਙਿਆਨ ਧਿਆਨ ਤਾਹੂ ਕਉ ਆਏ ॥
ngiaan dhiaan taahoo kau aae |

They alone find spiritual wisdom and meditation,

ਕਰਿ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਜਿਹ ਆਪਿ ਦਿਵਾਏ ॥
kar kirapaa jih aap divaae |

whom the Lord blesses with His Mercy;

ਙਣਤੀ ਙਣੀ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਊ ਛੂਟੈ ॥
nganatee nganee nahee koaoo chhoottai |

no one is emancipated by counting and calculating.

ਕਾਚੀ ਗਾਗਰਿ ਸਰਪਰ ਫੂਟੈ ॥
kaachee gaagar sarapar foottai |

The vessel of clay shall surely break.

ਸੋ ਜੀਵਤ ਜਿਹ ਜੀਵਤ ਜਪਿਆ ॥

They alone live, who, while alive, meditate on the Lord.

After wandering around in the four quarters and the ten directions,
