Sri Guru Granth Sahib

ਥਿਰੁ ਭਈ ਤੰਤੀ ਤੂਟਸਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਅਨਹਦ ਕਿੰਗੁਰੀ ਬਾਜੀ ॥੩॥
thir bhee tantee toottas naahee anahad kinguree baajee |3|

The string has become steady, and it does not break; this guitar vibrates with the unstruck melody. ||3||

ਸੁਨਿ ਮਨ ਮਗਨ ਭਏ ਹੈ ਪੂਰੇ ਮਾਇਆ ਡੋਲ ਨ ਲਾਗੀ ॥
sun man magan bhe hai poore maaeaa ddol na laagee |

Hearing it, the mind is enraptured and becomes perfect; it does not waver, and it is not affected by Maya.

ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਤਾ ਕਉ ਪੁਨਰਪਿ ਜਨਮੁ ਨਹੀ ਖੇਲਿ ਗਇਓ ਬੈਰਾਗੀ ॥੪॥੨॥੫੩॥
kahu kabeer taa kau punarap janam nahee khel geio bairaagee |4|2|53|

Says Kabeer, the bairaagee, the renunciate, who has played such a game, is not reincarnated again into the world of form and substance. ||4||2||53||

ਗਉੜੀ ॥
gaurree |

Gauree:

ਗਜ ਨਵ ਗਜ ਦਸ ਗਜ ਇਕੀਸ ਪੁਰੀਆ ਏਕ ਤਨਾਈ ॥
gaj nav gaj das gaj ikees pureea ek tanaaee |

Nine yards, ten yards, and twenty-one yards - weave these into the full piece of cloth;

ਸਾਠ ਸੂਤ ਨਵ ਖੰਡ ਬਹਤਰਿ ਪਾਟੁ ਲਗੋ ਅਧਿਕਾਈ ॥੧॥
saatth soot nav khandd bahatar paatt lago adhikaaee |1|

take the sixty threads and add nine joints to the seventy-two on the loom. ||1||

ਗਈ ਬੁਨਾਵਨ ਮਾਹੋ ॥
gee bunaavan maaho |

Life weaves itself into its patterns.

ਘਰ ਛੋਡਿਐ ਜਾਇ ਜੁਲਾਹੋ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ghar chhoddiaai jaae julaaho |1| rahaau |

Leaving her home, the soul goes to the world of the weaver. ||1||Pause||

ਗਜੀ ਨ ਮਿਨੀਐ ਤੋਲਿ ਨ ਤੁਲੀਐ ਪਾਚਨੁ ਸੇਰ ਅਢਾਈ ॥
gajee na mineeai tol na tuleeai paachan ser adtaaee |

This cloth cannot be measured in yards or weighed with weights; its food is two and a half measures.

ਜੌ ਕਰਿ ਪਾਚਨੁ ਬੇਗਿ ਨ ਪਾਵੈ ਝਗਰੁ ਕਰੈ ਘਰਹਾਈ ॥੨॥
jau kar paachan beg na paavai jhagar karai gharahaaee |2|

If it does not obtain food right away, it quarrels with the master of the house. ||2||

ਦਿਨ ਕੀ ਬੈਠ ਖਸਮ ਕੀ ਬਰਕਸ ਇਹ ਬੇਲਾ ਕਤ ਆਈ ॥
din kee baitth khasam kee barakas ih belaa kat aaee |

How many days will you sit here, in opposition to your Lord and Master? When will this opportunity come again?

ਛੂਟੇ ਕੂੰਡੇ ਭੀਗੈ ਪੁਰੀਆ ਚਲਿਓ ਜੁਲਾਹੋ ਰੀਸਾਈ ॥੩॥
chhootte koondde bheegai pureea chalio julaaho reesaaee |3|

Leaving his pots and pans, and the bobbins wet with his tears, the weaver soul departs in jealous anger. ||3||

ਛੋਛੀ ਨਲੀ ਤੰਤੁ ਨਹੀ ਨਿਕਸੈ ਨਤਰ ਰਹੀ ਉਰਝਾਈ ॥
chhochhee nalee tant nahee nikasai natar rahee urajhaaee |

The wind-pipe is empty now; the thread of the breath does not come out any longer. The thread is tangled; it has run out.

ਛੋਡਿ ਪਸਾਰੁ ਈਹਾ ਰਹੁ ਬਪੁਰੀ ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਸਮਝਾਈ ॥੪॥੩॥੫੪॥
chhodd pasaar eehaa rahu bapuree kahu kabeer samajhaaee |4|3|54|

So renounce the world of form and substance while you remain here, O poor soul; says Kabeer: you must understand this! ||4||3||54||

ਗਉੜੀ ॥
gaurree |

Gauree:

ਏਕ ਜੋਤਿ ਏਕਾ ਮਿਲੀ ਕਿੰਬਾ ਹੋਇ ਮਹੋਇ ॥
ek jot ekaa milee kinbaa hoe mahoe |

When one light merges into another, what becomes of it then?

ਜਿਤੁ ਘਟਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਊਪਜੈ ਫੂਟਿ ਮਰੈ ਜਨੁ ਸੋਇ ॥੧॥
jit ghatt naam na aoopajai foott marai jan soe |1|

That person, within whose heart the Lord's Name does not well up - may that person burst and die! ||1||

ਸਾਵਲ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਰਾਮਈਆ ॥
saaval sundar raameea |

O my dark and beautiful Lord,

ਮੇਰਾ ਮਨੁ ਲਾਗਾ ਤੋਹਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
meraa man laagaa tohi |1| rahaau |

my mind is attached to You. ||1||Pause||

ਸਾਧੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਸਿਧਿ ਪਾਈਐ ਕਿ ਏਹੁ ਜੋਗੁ ਕਿ ਭੋਗੁ ॥
saadh milai sidh paaeeai ki ehu jog ki bhog |

Meeting with the Holy, the perfection of the Siddhas is obtained. What good is Yoga or indulgence in pleasures?

ਦੁਹੁ ਮਿਲਿ ਕਾਰਜੁ ਊਪਜੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਸੰਜੋਗੁ ॥੨॥
duhu mil kaaraj aoopajai raam naam sanjog |2|

When the two meet together, the business is conducted, and the link with the Lord's Name is established. ||2||

ਲੋਗੁ ਜਾਨੈ ਇਹੁ ਗੀਤੁ ਹੈ ਇਹੁ ਤਉ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਬੀਚਾਰ ॥
log jaanai ihu geet hai ihu tau braham beechaar |

People believe that this is just a song, but it is a meditation on God.

ਜਿਉ ਕਾਸੀ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਹੋਇ ਮਾਨਸ ਮਰਤੀ ਬਾਰ ॥੩॥
jiau kaasee upades hoe maanas maratee baar |3|

It is like the instructions given to the dying man at Benares. ||3||

ਕੋਈ ਗਾਵੈ ਕੋ ਸੁਣੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮਾ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇ ॥
koee gaavai ko sunai har naamaa chit laae |

Whoever sings or listens to the Lord's Name with conscious awareness

ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਸੰਸਾ ਨਹੀ ਅੰਤਿ ਪਰਮ ਗਤਿ ਪਾਇ ॥੪॥੧॥੪॥੫੫॥
kahu kabeer sansaa nahee ant param gat paae |4|1|4|55|

- says Kabeer, without a doubt, in the end, he obtains the highest status. ||4||1||4||55||

ਗਉੜੀ ॥
gaurree |

Gauree:

ਜੇਤੇ ਜਤਨ ਕਰਤ ਤੇ ਡੂਬੇ ਭਵ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਤਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥
jete jatan karat te ddoobe bhav saagar nahee taario re |

Those who try to do things by their own efforts are drowned in the terrifying world-ocean; they cannot cross over.

ਕਰਮ ਧਰਮ ਕਰਤੇ ਬਹੁ ਸੰਜਮ ਅਹੰਬੁਧਿ ਮਨੁ ਜਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥੧॥
karam dharam karate bahu sanjam ahanbudh man jaario re |1|

Those who practice religious rituals and strict self-discipline - their egotistical pride shall consume their minds. ||1||

ਸਾਸ ਗ੍ਰਾਸ ਕੋ ਦਾਤੋ ਠਾਕੁਰੁ ਸੋ ਕਿਉ ਮਨਹੁ ਬਿਸਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥
saas graas ko daato tthaakur so kiau manahu bisaario re |

Your Lord and Master has given you the breath of life and food to sustain you; Oh, why have you forgotten Him?

ਹੀਰਾ ਲਾਲੁ ਅਮੋਲੁ ਜਨਮੁ ਹੈ ਕਉਡੀ ਬਦਲੈ ਹਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
heeraa laal amol janam hai kauddee badalai haario re |1| rahaau |

Human birth is a priceless jewel, which has been squandered in exchange for a worthless shell. ||1||Pause||

ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਤ੍ਰਿਖਾ ਭੂਖ ਭ੍ਰਮਿ ਲਾਗੀ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਨਾਹਿ ਬੀਚਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥
trisanaa trikhaa bhookh bhram laagee hiradai naeh beechaario re |

The thirst of desire and the hunger of doubt afflict you; you do not contemplate the Lord in your heart.

ਉਨਮਤ ਮਾਨ ਹਿਰਿਓ ਮਨ ਮਾਹੀ ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਧਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥੨॥
aunamat maan hirio man maahee gur kaa sabad na dhaario re |2|

Intoxicated with pride, you cheat yourself; you have not enshrined the Word of the Guru's Shabad within your mind. ||2||

ਸੁਆਦ ਲੁਭਤ ਇੰਦ੍ਰੀ ਰਸ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਿਓ ਮਦ ਰਸ ਲੈਤ ਬਿਕਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥
suaad lubhat indree ras prerio mad ras lait bikaario re |

Those who are deluded by sensual pleasures, who are tempted by sexual delights and enjoy wine are corrupt.

ਕਰਮ ਭਾਗ ਸੰਤਨ ਸੰਗਾਨੇ ਕਾਸਟ ਲੋਹ ਉਧਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥੩॥
karam bhaag santan sangaane kaasatt loh udhaario re |3|

But those who, through destiny and good karma, join the Society of the Saints, float over the ocean, like iron attached to wood. ||3||

ਧਾਵਤ ਜੋਨਿ ਜਨਮ ਭ੍ਰਮਿ ਥਾਕੇ ਅਬ ਦੁਖ ਕਰਿ ਹਮ ਹਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥
dhaavat jon janam bhram thaake ab dukh kar ham haario re |

I have wandered in doubt and confusion, through birth and reincarnation; now, I am so tired. I am suffering in pain and wasting away.

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲਤ ਮਹਾ ਰਸੁ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥੪॥੧॥੫॥੫੬॥
keh kabeer gur milat mahaa ras prem bhagat nisataario re |4|1|5|56|

Says Kabeer, meeting with the Guru, I have obtained supreme joy; my love and devotion have saved me. ||4||1||5||56||

ਗਉੜੀ ॥
gaurree |

Gauree:

ਕਾਲਬੂਤ ਕੀ ਹਸਤਨੀ ਮਨ ਬਉਰਾ ਰੇ ਚਲਤੁ ਰਚਿਓ ਜਗਦੀਸ ॥
kaalaboot kee hasatanee man bauraa re chalat rachio jagadees |

Like the straw figure of a female elephant, fashioned to trap the bull elephant, O crazy mind, the Lord of the Universe has staged the drama of this world.

ਕਾਮ ਸੁਆਇ ਗਜ ਬਸਿ ਪਰੇ ਮਨ ਬਉਰਾ ਰੇ ਅੰਕਸੁ ਸਹਿਓ ਸੀਸ ॥੧॥
kaam suaae gaj bas pare man bauraa re ankas sahio sees |1|

Attracted by the lure of sexual desire, the elephant is captured, O crazy mind, and now the halter is placed around its neck. ||1||
