Perfect is the intellect, and most distinguished is the reputation, of those whose minds are filled with the Mantra of the Perfect Guru.
Those who come to know their God, O Nanak, are very fortunate. ||1||
MAMMA: Those who understand God's mystery are satisfied,
joining the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy.
They look upon pleasure and pain as the same.
They are exempt from incarnation into heaven or hell.
They live in the world, and yet they are detached from it.
The Sublime Lord, the Primal Being, is totally pervading each and every heart.
In His Love, they find peace.
O Nanak, Maya does not cling to them at all. ||42||
Listen, my dear friends and companions: without the Lord, there is no salvation.
O Nanak, one who falls at the Feet of the Guru, has his bonds cut away. ||1||
YAYYA: People try all sorts of things,
but without the One Name, how far can they succeed?
Those efforts, by which emancipation may be attained
those efforts are made in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy.
Everyone has this idea of salvation,
but without meditation, there can be no salvation.
The All-powerful Lord is the boat to carry us across.
O Lord, please save these worthless beings!
Those whom the Lord Himself instructs in thought, word and deed
- O Nanak, their intellect is enlightened. ||43||
Do not be angry with anyone else; look within your own self instead.
Be humble in this world, O Nanak, and by His Grace you shall be carried across. ||1||
RARRA: Be the dust under the feet of all.
Give up your egotistical pride, and the balance of your account shall be written off.
Then, you shall win the battle in the Court of the Lord, O Siblings of Destiny.
As Gurmukh, lovingly attune yourself to the Lord's Name.
Your evil ways shall be slowly and steadily blotted out,
By the Shabad, the Incomparable Word of the Perfect Guru.
You shall be imbued with the Lord's Love, and intoxicated with the Nectar of the Naam.
O Nanak, the Lord, the Guru, has given this gift. ||44||
The afflictions of greed, falsehood and corruption abide in this body.
Drinking in the Ambrosial Nectar of the Lord's Name, Har, Har, O Nanak, the Gurmukh abides in peace. ||1||
LALLA: One who takes the medicine of the Naam, the Name of the Lord,
is cured of his pain and sorrow in an instant.
One whose heart is filled with the medicine of the Naam,
is not infested with disease, even in his dreams.
The medicine of the Lord's Name is in all hearts, O Siblings of Destiny.
Without the Perfect Guru, no one knows how to prepare it.
When the Perfect Guru gives the instructions to prepare it,
then, O Nanak, one does not suffer illness again. ||45||
The All-pervading Lord is in all places. There is no place where He does not exist.
Inside and outside, He is with you. O Nanak, what can be hidden from Him? ||1||
WAWWA: Do not harbor hatred against anyone.
In each and every heart, God is contained.
The All-pervading Lord is permeating and pervading the oceans and the land.
How rare are those who, by Guru's Grace, sing of Him.
Hatred and alienation depart from those
who, as Gurmukh, listen to the Kirtan of the Lord's Praises.
O Nanak, one who becomes Gurmukh chants the Name of the Lord,
