Aasaa, Third House, First Mehl:

ਲਖ ਲਸਕਰ ਲਖ ਵਾਜੇ ਨੇਜੇ ਲਖ ਉਠਿ ਕਰਹਿ ਸਲਾਮੁ ॥
lakh lasakar lakh vaaje neje lakh utth kareh salaam |

You may have thousands of armies, thousands of marching bands and lances, and thousands of men to rise and salute you.

ਲਖਾ ਉਪਰਿ ਫੁਰਮਾਇਸਿ ਤੇਰੀ ਲਖ ਉਠਿ ਰਾਖਹਿ ਮਾਨੁ ॥
lakhaa upar furamaaeis teree lakh utth raakheh maan |

Your rule may extend over thousands of miles, and thousands of men may rise to honor you.

ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਸਭਿ ਨਿਰਾਫਲ ਕਾਮ ॥੧॥
jaan pat lekhai naa pavai taan sabh niraafal kaam |1|

But, if your honor is of no account to the Lord, then all of your ostentatious show is useless. ||1||

ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਜਗੁ ਧੰਧਾ ॥
har ke naam binaa jag dhandhaa |

Without the Name of the Lord, the world is in turmoil.

ਜੇ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਸਮਝਾਈਐ ਭੋਲਾ ਭੀ ਸੋ ਅੰਧੋ ਅੰਧਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
je bahutaa samajhaaeeai bholaa bhee so andho andhaa |1| rahaau |

Even though the fool may be taught again and again, he remains the blindest of the blind. ||1||Pause||

lakh khatteeeh lakh sanjeeeh khaajeh lakh aaveh lakh jaeh |

You may earn thousands, collect thousands, and spend thousands of dollars; thousands may come, and thousands may go.

ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਜੀਅ ਕਿਥੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਪਾਹਿ ॥੨॥
jaan pat lekhai naa pavai taan jeea kithai fir paeh |2|

But, if your honor is of no account to the Lord, then where will you go to find a safe haven? ||2||

ਲਖ ਸਾਸਤ ਸਮਝਾਵਣੀ ਲਖ ਪੰਡਿਤ ਪੜਹਿ ਪੁਰਾਣ ॥
lakh saasat samajhaavanee lakh panddit parreh puraan |

Thousands of Shaastras may be explained to the mortal, and thousands of Pandits may read the Puraanas to him;

ਜਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਲੇਖੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਤਾਂ ਸਭੇ ਕੁਪਰਵਾਣ ॥੩॥
jaan pat lekhai naa pavai taan sabhe kuparavaan |3|

but, if his honor is of no account to the Lord, then all of this is unacceptable. ||3||

ਸਚ ਨਾਮਿ ਪਤਿ ਊਪਜੈ ਕਰਮਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾਰੁ ॥
sach naam pat aoopajai karam naam karataar |

Honor comes from the True Name, the Name of the Merciful Creator.

ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਜੇ ਵਸੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਦਰੀ ਪਾਰੁ ॥੪॥੧॥੩੧॥
ahinis hiradai je vasai naanak nadaree paar |4|1|31|

If it abides in the heart, day and night, O Nanak, then the mortal shall swim across, by His Grace. ||4||1||31||

Aasaa, First Mehl:

deevaa meraa ek naam dukh vich paaeaa tel |

The One Name is my lamp; I have put the oil of suffering into it.

aun chaanan ohu sokhiaa chookaa jam siau mel |1|

Its flame has dried up this oil, and I have escaped my meeting with the Messenger of Death. ||1||

lokaa mat ko fakarr paae |

O people, do not make fun of me.

ਲਖ ਮੜਿਆ ਕਰਿ ਏਕਠੇ ਏਕ ਰਤੀ ਲੇ ਭਾਹਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
lakh marriaa kar ekatthe ek ratee le bhaeh |1| rahaau |

Thousands of wooden logs, piled up together, need only a tiny flame to burn. ||1||Pause||

ਪਿੰਡੁ ਪਤਲਿ ਮੇਰੀ ਕੇਸਉ ਕਿਰਿਆ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਕਰਤਾਰੁ ॥
pindd patal meree kesau kiriaa sach naam karataar |

The Lord is my festive dish, of rice balls on leafy plates; the True Name of the Creator Lord is my funeral ceremony.

aaithai othai aagai paachhai ehu meraa aadhaar |2|

Here and hereafter, in the past and in the future, this is my support. ||2||

sachaa naavan taan theeai jaan ahinis laagai bhaau |3|

That becomes my true cleansing bath, if night and day, I enshrine love for You. ||3||

eik lokee hor chhamichharee braahaman vatt pindd khaae |

The rice balls are offered to the gods and the dead ancestors, but it is the Brahmins who eat them!

ਨਾਨਕ ਪਿੰਡੁ ਬਖਸੀਸ ਕਾ ਕਬਹੂੰ ਨਿਖੂਟਸਿ ਨਾਹਿ ॥੪॥੨॥੩੨॥
naanak pindd bakhasees kaa kabahoon nikhoottas naeh |4|2|32|

O Nanak, the rice balls of the Lord are a gift which is never exhausted. ||4||2||32||
