ਝਝਾ ਉਰਝਿ ਸੁਰਝਿ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਨਾ ॥
jhajhaa urajh surajh nahee jaanaa |

JHAJHA: You are entangled in the world, and you do not know how to get untangled.

ਰਹਿਓ ਝਝਕਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਪਰਵਾਨਾ ॥
rahio jhajhak naahee paravaanaa |

You hold back in fear, and are not approved by the Lord.

ਕਤ ਝਖਿ ਝਖਿ ਅਉਰਨ ਸਮਝਾਵਾ ॥
kat jhakh jhakh aauran samajhaavaa |

Why do you talk such nonsense, trying to convince others?

ਝਗਰੁ ਕੀਏ ਝਗਰਉ ਹੀ ਪਾਵਾ ॥੧੫॥
jhagar kee jhagrau hee paavaa |15|

Stirring up arguments, you shall only obtain more arguments. ||15||

ਞੰਞਾ ਨਿਕਟਿ ਜੁ ਘਟ ਰਹਿਓ ਦੂਰਿ ਕਹਾ ਤਜਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
yanyaa nikatt ju ghatt rahio door kahaa taj jaae |

NYANYA: He dwells near you, deep within your heart; why do you leave Him and go far away?

ਜਾ ਕਾਰਣਿ ਜਗੁ ਢੂਢਿਅਉ ਨੇਰਉ ਪਾਇਅਉ ਤਾਹਿ ॥੧੬॥
jaa kaaran jag dtoodtiaau nerau paaeaau taeh |16|

I searched the whole world for Him, but I found Him near myself. ||16||

ਟਟਾ ਬਿਕਟ ਘਾਟ ਘਟ ਮਾਹੀ ॥
ttattaa bikatt ghaatt ghatt maahee |

TATTA: It is such a difficult path, to find Him within your own heart.

ਖੋਲਿ ਕਪਾਟ ਮਹਲਿ ਕਿ ਨ ਜਾਹੀ ॥
khol kapaatt mahal ki na jaahee |

Open the doors within, and enter the Mansion of His Presence.

ਦੇਖਿ ਅਟਲ ਟਲਿ ਕਤਹਿ ਨ ਜਾਵਾ ॥
dekh attal ttal kateh na jaavaa |

Beholding the Immovable Lord, you shall not slip and go anywhere else.

ਰਹੈ ਲਪਟਿ ਘਟ ਪਰਚਉ ਪਾਵਾ ॥੧੭॥
rahai lapatt ghatt parchau paavaa |17|

You shall remain firmly attached to the Lord, and your heart will be happy. ||17||

ਠਠਾ ਇਹੈ ਦੂਰਿ ਠਗ ਨੀਰਾ ॥
tthatthaa ihai door tthag neeraa |

T'HAT'HA: Keep yourself far away from this mirage.

ਨੀਠਿ ਨੀਠਿ ਮਨੁ ਕੀਆ ਧੀਰਾ ॥
neetth neetth man keea dheeraa |

With great difficulty, I have calmed my mind.

ਜਿਨਿ ਠਗਿ ਠਗਿਆ ਸਗਲ ਜਗੁ ਖਾਵਾ ॥
jin tthag tthagiaa sagal jag khaavaa |

That cheater, who cheated and devoured the whole world

ਸੋ ਠਗੁ ਠਗਿਆ ਠਉਰ ਮਨੁ ਆਵਾ ॥੧੮॥
so tthag tthagiaa tthaur man aavaa |18|

- I have cheated that cheater, and my mind is now at peace. ||18||

ਡਡਾ ਡਰ ਉਪਜੇ ਡਰੁ ਜਾਈ ॥
ddaddaa ddar upaje ddar jaaee |

DADDA: When the Fear of God wells up, other fears depart.

ਤਾ ਡਰ ਮਹਿ ਡਰੁ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਈ ॥
taa ddar meh ddar rahiaa samaaee |

Other fears are absorbed into that Fear.

ਜਉ ਡਰ ਡਰੈ ਤ ਫਿਰਿ ਡਰੁ ਲਾਗੈ ॥
jau ddar ddarai ta fir ddar laagai |

When one rejects the Fear of God, then other fears cling to him.

ਨਿਡਰ ਹੂਆ ਡਰੁ ਉਰ ਹੋਇ ਭਾਗੈ ॥੧੯॥
niddar hooaa ddar ur hoe bhaagai |19|

But if he becomes fearless, the fears of his heart run away. ||19||

ਢਢਾ ਢਿਗ ਢੂਢਹਿ ਕਤ ਆਨਾ ॥
dtadtaa dtig dtoodteh kat aanaa |

DHADHA: Why do you search in other directions?

ਢੂਢਤ ਹੀ ਢਹਿ ਗਏ ਪਰਾਨਾ ॥
dtoodtat hee dteh ge paraanaa |

Searching for Him like this, the breath of life runs out.

ਚੜਿ ਸੁਮੇਰਿ ਢੂਢਿ ਜਬ ਆਵਾ ॥
charr sumer dtoodt jab aavaa |

When I returned after climbing the mountain,

ਜਿਹ ਗੜੁ ਗੜਿਓ ਸੁ ਗੜ ਮਹਿ ਪਾਵਾ ॥੨੦॥
jih garr garrio su garr meh paavaa |20|

I found Him in the fortress - the fortress which He Himself made. ||20||

ਣਾਣਾ ਰਣਿ ਰੂਤਉ ਨਰ ਨੇਹੀ ਕਰੈ ॥
naanaa ran rootau nar nehee karai |

NANNA: The warrior who fights on the battle-field should keep up and press on.

ਨਾ ਨਿਵੈ ਨਾ ਫੁਨਿ ਸੰਚਰੈ ॥
naa nivai naa fun sancharai |

He should not yield, and he should not retreat.

ਧੰਨਿ ਜਨਮੁ ਤਾਹੀ ਕੋ ਗਣੈ ॥
dhan janam taahee ko ganai |

Blessed is the coming of one

ਮਾਰੈ ਏਕਹਿ ਤਜਿ ਜਾਇ ਘਣੈ ॥੨੧॥
maarai ekeh taj jaae ghanai |21|

who conquers the one and renounces the many. ||21||

ਤਤਾ ਅਤਰ ਤਰਿਓ ਨਹ ਜਾਈ ॥
tataa atar tario nah jaaee |

TATTA: The impassable world-ocean cannot be crossed over;

ਤਨ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਮਹਿ ਰਹਿਓ ਸਮਾਈ ॥
tan tribhavan meh rahio samaaee |

the body remains embroiled in the three worlds.

ਜਉ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਤਨ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਮਾਵਾ ॥
jau tribhavan tan maeh samaavaa |

But when the Lord of the three worlds enters into the body,

ਤਉ ਤਤਹਿ ਤਤ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਵਾ ॥੨੨॥
tau tateh tat miliaa sach paavaa |22|

then one's essence merges with the essence of reality, and the True Lord is attained. ||22||

ਥਥਾ ਅਥਾਹ ਥਾਹ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
thathaa athaah thaah nahee paavaa |

T'HAT'HA: He is Unfathomable; His depths cannot be fathomed.

ਓਹੁ ਅਥਾਹ ਇਹੁ ਥਿਰੁ ਨ ਰਹਾਵਾ ॥
ohu athaah ihu thir na rahaavaa |

He is Unfathomable; this body is impermanent, and unstable.

ਥੋੜੈ ਥਲਿ ਥਾਨਕ ਆਰੰਭੈ ॥
thorrai thal thaanak aaranbhai |

The mortal builds his dwelling upon this tiny space;

ਬਿਨੁ ਹੀ ਥਾਭਹ ਮੰਦਿਰੁ ਥੰਭੈ ॥੨੩॥
bin hee thaabhah mandir thanbhai |23|

without any pillars, he wishes to support a mansion. ||23||

ਦਦਾ ਦੇਖਿ ਜੁ ਬਿਨਸਨਹਾਰਾ ॥
dadaa dekh ju binasanahaaraa |

DADDA: Whatever is seen shall perish.

ਜਸ ਅਦੇਖਿ ਤਸ ਰਾਖਿ ਬਿਚਾਰਾ ॥
jas adekh tas raakh bichaaraa |

Contemplate the One who is unseen.

ਦਸਵੈ ਦੁਆਰਿ ਕੁੰਚੀ ਜਬ ਦੀਜੈ ॥
dasavai duaar kunchee jab deejai |

When the key is inserted in the Tenth Gate,

ਤਉ ਦਇਆਲ ਕੋ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਕੀਜੈ ॥੨੪॥
tau deaal ko darasan keejai |24|

then the Blessed Vision of the Merciful Lord's Darshan is seen. ||24||

ਧਧਾ ਅਰਧਹਿ ਉਰਧ ਨਿਬੇਰਾ ॥
dhadhaa aradheh uradh niberaa |

DHADHA: When one ascends from the lower realms of the earth to the higher realms of the heavens, then everything is resolved.

ਅਰਧਹਿ ਉਰਧਹ ਮੰਝਿ ਬਸੇਰਾ ॥
aradheh uradhah manjh baseraa |

The Lord dwells in both the lower and higher worlds.

ਅਰਧਹ ਛਾਡਿ ਉਰਧ ਜਉ ਆਵਾ ॥
aradhah chhaadd uradh jau aavaa |

Leaving the earth, the soul ascends to the heavens;

ਤਉ ਅਰਧਹਿ ਉਰਧ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਵਾ ॥੨੫॥
tau aradheh uradh miliaa sukh paavaa |25|

then, the lower and higher join together, and peace is obtained. ||25||

ਨੰਨਾ ਨਿਸਿ ਦਿਨੁ ਨਿਰਖਤ ਜਾਈ ॥
nanaa nis din nirakhat jaaee |

NANNA: The days and nights go by; I am looking for the Lord.

ਨਿਰਖਤ ਨੈਨ ਰਹੇ ਰਤਵਾਈ ॥
nirakhat nain rahe ratavaaee |

Looking for Him, my eyes have become blood-shot.

ਨਿਰਖਤ ਨਿਰਖਤ ਜਬ ਜਾਇ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
nirakhat nirakhat jab jaae paavaa |

After looking and looking,when He is finally found,

ਤਬ ਲੇ ਨਿਰਖਹਿ ਨਿਰਖ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ॥੨੬॥
tab le nirakheh nirakh milaavaa |26|

then the one who was looking merges into the One who was looked for. ||26||

ਪਪਾ ਅਪਰ ਪਾਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
papaa apar paar nahee paavaa |

PAPPA: He is limitless; His limits cannot be found.

ਪਰਮ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਿਉ ਪਰਚਉ ਲਾਵਾ ॥
param jot siau parchau laavaa |

I have attuned myself to the Supreme Light.

ਪਾਂਚਉ ਇੰਦ੍ਰੀ ਨਿਗ੍ਰਹ ਕਰਈ ॥
paanchau indree nigrah karee |

One who controls his five senses

ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੋਊ ਨਿਰਵਰਈ ॥੨੭॥
paap pun doaoo niravaree |27|

rises above both sin and virtue. ||27||

ਫਫਾ ਬਿਨੁ ਫੂਲਹ ਫਲੁ ਹੋਈ ॥
fafaa bin foolah fal hoee |

FAFFA: Even without the flower, the fruit is produced.

ਤਾ ਫਲ ਫੰਕ ਲਖੈ ਜਉ ਕੋਈ ॥
taa fal fank lakhai jau koee |

One who looks at a slice of that fruit

ਦੂਣਿ ਨ ਪਰਈ ਫੰਕ ਬਿਚਾਰੈ ॥
doon na paree fank bichaarai |

and reflects on it, will not be consigned to reincarnation.

ਤਾ ਫਲ ਫੰਕ ਸਭੈ ਤਨ ਫਾਰੈ ॥੨੮॥
taa fal fank sabhai tan faarai |28|

A slice of that fruit slices all bodies. ||28||

ਬਬਾ ਬਿੰਦਹਿ ਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ॥
babaa bindeh bind milaavaa |

BABBA: When one drop blends with another drop,

ਬਿੰਦਹਿ ਬਿੰਦਿ ਨ ਬਿਛੁਰਨ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
bindeh bind na bichhuran paavaa |

then these drops cannot be separated again.

ਬੰਦਉ ਹੋਇ ਬੰਦਗੀ ਗਹੈ ॥
bandau hoe bandagee gahai |

Become the Lord's slave, and hold tight to His meditation.
