ਗਿਆਨੁ ਨ ਗਲੀਈ ਢੂਢੀਐ ਕਥਨਾ ਕਰੜਾ ਸਾਰੁ ॥
giaan na galeeee dtoodteeai kathanaa kararraa saar |

Wisdom cannot be found through mere words. To explain it is as hard as iron.

ਕਰਮਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਤਾ ਪਾਈਐ ਹੋਰ ਹਿਕਮਤਿ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥੨॥
karam milai taa paaeeai hor hikamat hukam khuaar |2|

When the Lord bestows His Grace, then alone it is received; other tricks and orders are useless. ||2||

If the Merciful Lord shows His Mercy, then the True Guru is found.

ਏਹੁ ਜੀਉ ਬਹੁਤੇ ਜਨਮ ਭਰੰਮਿਆ ਤਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਣਾਇਆ ॥
ehu jeeo bahute janam bharamiaa taa satigur sabad sunaaeaa |

This soul wandered through countless incarnations, until the True Guru instructed it in the Word of the Shabad.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਦਾਤਾ ਕੋ ਨਹੀ ਸਭਿ ਸੁਣਿਅਹੁ ਲੋਕ ਸਬਾਇਆ ॥
satigur jevadd daataa ko nahee sabh suniahu lok sabaaeaa |

There is no giver as great as the True Guru; hear this, all you people.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਮਿਲਿਐ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਿਨੑੀ ਵਿਚਹੁ ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥
satigur miliaai sach paaeaa jinaee vichahu aap gavaaeaa |

Meeting the True Guru, the True Lord is found; He removes self-conceit from within,

ਜਿਨਿ ਸਚੋ ਸਚੁ ਬੁਝਾਇਆ ॥੪॥
jin sacho sach bujhaaeaa |4|

and instructs us in the Truth of Truths. ||4||
