ਜੇ ਸਉ ਵਰ੍ਹਿਆ ਜੀਵਣ ਖਾਣੁ ॥
je sau varhiaa jeevan khaan |

If one were to live and eat for hundreds of years,

ਖਸਮ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਸੋ ਦਿਨੁ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥੨॥
khasam pachhaanai so din paravaan |2|

that day alone would be auspicious, when he recognizes his Lord and Master. ||2||

ਦਰਸਨਿ ਦੇਖਿਐ ਦਇਆ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥
darasan dekhiaai deaa na hoe |

Beholding the sight of the petitioner, compassion is not aroused.

ਲਏ ਦਿਤੇ ਵਿਣੁ ਰਹੈ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥
le dite vin rahai na koe |

No one lives without give and take.

ਰਾਜਾ ਨਿਆਉ ਕਰੇ ਹਥਿ ਹੋਇ ॥
raajaa niaau kare hath hoe |

The king administers justice only if his palm is greased.

ਕਹੈ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਨ ਮਾਨੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩॥
kahai khudaae na maanai koe |3|

No one is moved by the Name of God. ||3||

ਮਾਣਸ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ॥
maanas moorat naanak naam |

O Nanak, they are human beings in form and name only;

ਕਰਣੀ ਕੁਤਾ ਦਰਿ ਫੁਰਮਾਨੁ ॥
karanee kutaa dar furamaan |

by their deeds they are dogs - this is the Command of the Lord's Court.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦਿ ਜਾਣੈ ਮਿਹਮਾਨੁ ॥
guraparasaad jaanai mihamaan |

By Guru's Grace, if one sees himself as a guest in this world,

ਤਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਾਵੈ ਮਾਨੁ ॥੪॥੪॥
taa kichh daragah paavai maan |4|4|

then he gains honor in the Court of the Lord. ||4||4||

ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
aasaa mahalaa 1 |

Aasaa, First Mehl:

ਜੇਤਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਧੁਨਿ ਤੇਤੀ ਜੇਤਾ ਰੂਪੁ ਕਾਇਆ ਤੇਰੀ ॥
jetaa sabad surat dhun tetee jetaa roop kaaeaa teree |

As much as the Shabad is in the mind, so much is Your melody; as much as the form of the universe is, so much is Your body, Lord.

ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਰਸਨਾ ਆਪੇ ਬਸਨਾ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਕਹਉ ਮਾਈ ॥੧॥
toon aape rasanaa aape basanaa avar na doojaa khau maaee |1|

You Yourself are the tongue, and You Yourself are the nose. Do not speak of any other, O my mother. ||1||

ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਏਕੋ ਹੈ ॥
saahib meraa eko hai |

My Lord and Master is One;

ਏਕੋ ਹੈ ਭਾਈ ਏਕੋ ਹੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
eko hai bhaaee eko hai |1| rahaau |

He is the One and Only; O Siblings of Destiny, He is the One alone. ||1||Pause||

ਆਪੇ ਮਾਰੇ ਆਪੇ ਛੋਡੈ ਆਪੇ ਲੇਵੈ ਦੇਇ ॥
aape maare aape chhoddai aape levai dee |

He Himself kills, and He Himself emancipates; He Himself gives and takes.

ਆਪੇ ਵੇਖੈ ਆਪੇ ਵਿਗਸੈ ਆਪੇ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇਇ ॥੨॥
aape vekhai aape vigasai aape nadar karee |2|

He Himself beholds, and He Himself rejoices; He Himself bestows His Glance of Grace. ||2||

ਜੋ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਰਣਾ ਸੋ ਕਰਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕਰਣਾ ਜਾਈ ॥
jo kichh karanaa so kar rahiaa avar na karanaa jaaee |

Whatever He is to do, that is what He is doing. No one else can do anything.

ਜੈਸਾ ਵਰਤੈ ਤੈਸੋ ਕਹੀਐ ਸਭ ਤੇਰੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥੩॥
jaisaa varatai taiso kaheeai sabh teree vaddiaaee |3|

As He projects Himself, so do we describe Him; this is all Your Glorious Greatness, Lord. ||3||

ਕਲਿ ਕਲਵਾਲੀ ਮਾਇਆ ਮਦੁ ਮੀਠਾ ਮਨੁ ਮਤਵਾਲਾ ਪੀਵਤੁ ਰਹੈ ॥
kal kalavaalee maaeaa mad meetthaa man matavaalaa peevat rahai |

The Dark Age of Kali Yuga is the bottle of wine; Maya is the sweet wine, and the intoxicated mind continues to drink it in.

ਆਪੇ ਰੂਪ ਕਰੇ ਬਹੁ ਭਾਂਤੀਂ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਬਪੁੜਾ ਏਵ ਕਹੈ ॥੪॥੫॥
aape roop kare bahu bhaanteen naanak bapurraa ev kahai |4|5|

He Himself assumes all sorts of forms; thus poor Nanak speaks. ||4||5||

You are totally pervading everywhere; You love and cherish all. ||1||Pause||

jeea upaae jugat hath keenee kaalee nath kiaa vaddaa bheaa |

You created all beings, and You hold the world in Your Hands; what greatness is it to put a ring in the nose of the black cobra, as Krishna did?

kis toon purakh joroo kaun kaheeai sarab nirantar rav rahiaa |2|
