Sri Guru Granth Sahib

ਹਉ ਬਨਜਾਰੋ ਰਾਮ ਕੋ ਸਹਜ ਕਰਉ ਬੵਾਪਾਰੁ ॥
hau banajaaro raam ko sahaj krau bayaapaar |

I am the merchant of the Lord; I deal in spiritual wisdom.

ਮੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਧਨੁ ਲਾਦਿਆ ਬਿਖੁ ਲਾਦੀ ਸੰਸਾਰਿ ॥੨॥
mai raam naam dhan laadiaa bikh laadee sansaar |2|

I have loaded the Wealth of the Lord's Name; the world has loaded poison. ||2||

ਉਰਵਾਰ ਪਾਰ ਕੇ ਦਾਨੀਆ ਲਿਖਿ ਲੇਹੁ ਆਲ ਪਤਾਲੁ ॥
auravaar paar ke daaneea likh lehu aal pataal |

O you who know this world and the world beyond: write whatever nonsense you please about me.

ਮੋਹਿ ਜਮ ਡੰਡੁ ਨ ਲਾਗਈ ਤਜੀਲੇ ਸਰਬ ਜੰਜਾਲ ॥੩॥
mohi jam ddandd na laagee tajeele sarab janjaal |3|

The club of the Messenger of Death shall not strike me, since I have cast off all entanglements. ||3||

ਜੈਸਾ ਰੰਗੁ ਕਸੁੰਭ ਕਾ ਤੈਸਾ ਇਹੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ॥
jaisaa rang kasunbh kaa taisaa ihu sansaar |

Love of this world is like the pale, temporary color of the safflower.

ਮੇਰੇ ਰਮਈਏ ਰੰਗੁ ਮਜੀਠ ਕਾ ਕਹੁ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਚਮਾਰ ॥੪॥੧॥
mere rameee rang majeetth kaa kahu ravidaas chamaar |4|1|

The color of my Lord's Love, however, is permanent, like the dye of the madder plant. So says Ravi Daas, the tanner. ||4||1||

ਗਉੜੀ ਪੂਰਬੀ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਜੀਉ ॥
gaurree poorabee ravidaas jeeo |

Gauree Poorbee, Ravi Daas Jee:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

ਕੂਪੁ ਭਰਿਓ ਜੈਸੇ ਦਾਦਿਰਾ ਕਛੁ ਦੇਸੁ ਬਿਦੇਸੁ ਨ ਬੂਝ ॥
koop bhario jaise daadiraa kachh des bides na boojh |

The frog in the deep well knows nothing of its own country or other lands;

ਐਸੇ ਮੇਰਾ ਮਨੁ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਬਿਮੋਹਿਆ ਕਛੁ ਆਰਾ ਪਾਰੁ ਨ ਸੂਝ ॥੧॥
aaise meraa man bikhiaa bimohiaa kachh aaraa paar na soojh |1|

just so, my mind, infatuated with corruption, understands nothing about this world or the next. ||1||

ਸਗਲ ਭਵਨ ਕੇ ਨਾਇਕਾ ਇਕੁ ਛਿਨੁ ਦਰਸੁ ਦਿਖਾਇ ਜੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
sagal bhavan ke naaeikaa ik chhin daras dikhaae jee |1| rahaau |

O Lord of all worlds: reveal to me, even for an instant, the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. ||1||Pause||

ਮਲਿਨ ਭਈ ਮਤਿ ਮਾਧਵਾ ਤੇਰੀ ਗਤਿ ਲਖੀ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥
malin bhee mat maadhavaa teree gat lakhee na jaae |

My intellect is polluted; I cannot understand Your state, O Lord.

ਕਰਹੁ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਭ੍ਰਮੁ ਚੂਕਈ ਮੈ ਸੁਮਤਿ ਦੇਹੁ ਸਮਝਾਇ ॥੨॥
karahu kripaa bhram chookee mai sumat dehu samajhaae |2|

Take pity on me, dispel my doubts, and teach me true wisdom. ||2||

ਜੋਗੀਸਰ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਨਹੀ ਤੁਅ ਗੁਣ ਕਥਨੁ ਅਪਾਰ ॥
jogeesar paaveh nahee tua gun kathan apaar |

Even the great Yogis cannot describe Your Glorious Virtues; they are beyond words.

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਕੈ ਕਾਰਣੈ ਕਹੁ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਚਮਾਰ ॥੩॥੧॥
prem bhagat kai kaaranai kahu ravidaas chamaar |3|1|

I am dedicated to Your loving devotional worship, says Ravi Daas the tanner. ||3||1||

ਗਉੜੀ ਬੈਰਾਗਣਿ ॥
gaurree bairaagan |

Gauree Bairaagan:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

ਸਤਜੁਗਿ ਸਤੁ ਤੇਤਾ ਜਗੀ ਦੁਆਪਰਿ ਪੂਜਾਚਾਰ ॥
satajug sat tetaa jagee duaapar poojaachaar |

In the Golden Age of Sat Yuga, was Truth; in the Silver Age of Trayta Yuga, charitable feasts; in the Brass Age of Dwaapar Yuga, there was worship.

ਤੀਨੌ ਜੁਗ ਤੀਨੌ ਦਿੜੇ ਕਲਿ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ਅਧਾਰ ॥੧॥
teenau jug teenau dirre kal keval naam adhaar |1|

In those three ages, people held to these three ways. But in the Iron Age of Kali Yuga, the Name of the Lord is your only Support. ||1||

ਪਾਰੁ ਕੈਸੇ ਪਾਇਬੋ ਰੇ ॥
paar kaise paaeibo re |

How can I swim across?

ਮੋ ਸਉ ਕੋਊ ਨ ਕਹੈ ਸਮਝਾਇ ॥
mo sau koaoo na kahai samajhaae |

No one has explained to me,

ਜਾ ਤੇ ਆਵਾ ਗਵਨੁ ਬਿਲਾਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jaa te aavaa gavan bilaae |1| rahaau |

so that I might understand how I can escape reincarnation. ||1||Pause||

ਬਹੁ ਬਿਧਿ ਧਰਮ ਨਿਰੂਪੀਐ ਕਰਤਾ ਦੀਸੈ ਸਭ ਲੋਇ ॥
bahu bidh dharam niroopeeai karataa deesai sabh loe |

So many forms of religion have been described; the whole world is practicing them.

ਕਵਨ ਕਰਮ ਤੇ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਜਿਹ ਸਾਧੇ ਸਭ ਸਿਧਿ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥
kavan karam te chhootteeai jih saadhe sabh sidh hoe |2|

What actions will bring emancipation, and total perfection? ||2||

ਕਰਮ ਅਕਰਮ ਬੀਚਾਰੀਐ ਸੰਕਾ ਸੁਨਿ ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਨ ॥
karam akaram beechaareeai sankaa sun bed puraan |

One may distinguish between good and evil actions, and listen to the Vedas and the Puraanas,

ਸੰਸਾ ਸਦ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਬਸੈ ਕਉਨੁ ਹਿਰੈ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ॥੩॥
sansaa sad hiradai basai kaun hirai abhimaan |3|

but doubt still persists. Skepticism continually dwells in the heart, so who can eradicate egotistical pride? ||3||

ਬਾਹਰੁ ਉਦਕਿ ਪਖਾਰੀਐ ਘਟ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਬਿਬਿਧਿ ਬਿਕਾਰ ॥
baahar udak pakhaareeai ghatt bheetar bibidh bikaar |

Outwardly, he washes with water, but deep within, his heart is tarnished by all sorts of vices.

ਸੁਧ ਕਵਨ ਪਰ ਹੋਇਬੋ ਸੁਚ ਕੁੰਚਰ ਬਿਧਿ ਬਿਉਹਾਰ ॥੪॥
sudh kavan par hoeibo such kunchar bidh biauhaar |4|

So how can he become pure? His method of purification is like that of an elephant, covering himself with dust right after his bath! ||4||

ਰਵਿ ਪ੍ਰਗਾਸ ਰਜਨੀ ਜਥਾ ਗਤਿ ਜਾਨਤ ਸਭ ਸੰਸਾਰ ॥
rav pragaas rajanee jathaa gat jaanat sabh sansaar |

With the rising of the sun, the night is brought to its end; the whole world knows this.

ਪਾਰਸ ਮਾਨੋ ਤਾਬੋ ਛੁਏ ਕਨਕ ਹੋਤ ਨਹੀ ਬਾਰ ॥੫॥
paaras maano taabo chhue kanak hot nahee baar |5|

It is believed that with the touch of the Philosopher's Stone, copper is immediately transformed into gold. ||5||

ਪਰਮ ਪਰਸ ਗੁਰੁ ਭੇਟੀਐ ਪੂਰਬ ਲਿਖਤ ਲਿਲਾਟ ॥
param paras gur bhetteeai poorab likhat lilaatt |

When one meets the Supreme Philosopher's Stone, the Guru, if such pre-ordained destiny is written on one's forehead,

ਉਨਮਨ ਮਨ ਮਨ ਹੀ ਮਿਲੇ ਛੁਟਕਤ ਬਜਰ ਕਪਾਟ ॥੬॥
aunaman man man hee mile chhuttakat bajar kapaatt |6|

then the soul blends with the Supreme Soul, and the stubborn doors are opened wide. ||6||

ਭਗਤਿ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਮਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਕਰੀ ਭ੍ਰਮ ਬੰਧਨ ਕਾਟਿ ਬਿਕਾਰ ॥
bhagat jugat mat sat karee bhram bandhan kaatt bikaar |

Through the way of devotion, the intellect is imbued with Truth; doubts, entanglements and vices are cut away.

ਸੋਈ ਬਸਿ ਰਸਿ ਮਨ ਮਿਲੇ ਗੁਨ ਨਿਰਗੁਨ ਏਕ ਬਿਚਾਰ ॥੭॥
soee bas ras man mile gun niragun ek bichaar |7|

The mind is restrained, and one attains joy, contemplating the One Lord, who is both with and without qualities. ||7||

ਅਨਿਕ ਜਤਨ ਨਿਗ੍ਰਹ ਕੀਏ ਟਾਰੀ ਨ ਟਰੈ ਭ੍ਰਮ ਫਾਸ ॥
anik jatan nigrah kee ttaaree na ttarai bhram faas |

I have tried many methods, but by turning it away, the noose of doubt is not turned away.

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਊਪਜੈ ਤਾ ਤੇ ਰਵਿਦਾਸ ਉਦਾਸ ॥੮॥੧॥
prem bhagat nahee aoopajai taa te ravidaas udaas |8|1|

Love and devotion have not welled up within me, and so Ravi Daas is sad and depressed. ||8||1||
