ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਨਮੁ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਗਵਾਇਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਜਮੁ ਮਾਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਖੁਆਰ ॥੨॥
har naam na paaeaa janam birathaa gavaaeaa naanak jam maar kare khuaar |2|

They do not obtain the Lord's Name, and they waste away their lives in vain; O Nanak, the Messenger of Death punishes and dishonors them. ||2||

paurree |

Pauree:

ਆਪਣਾ ਆਪੁ ਉਪਾਇਓਨੁ ਤਦਹੁ ਹੋਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਈ ॥
aapanaa aap upaaeion tadahu hor na koee |

He created Himself - at that time, there was no other.

ਮਤਾ ਮਸੂਰਤਿ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੇ ਜੋ ਕਰੇ ਸੁ ਹੋਈ ॥
mataa masoorat aap kare jo kare su hoee |

He consulted Himself for advice, and what He did came to pass.

ਤਦਹੁ ਆਕਾਸੁ ਨ ਪਾਤਾਲੁ ਹੈ ਨਾ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਲੋਈ ॥
tadahu aakaas na paataal hai naa trai loee |

At that time, there were no Akaashic Ethers, no nether regions, nor the three worlds.

ਤਦਹੁ ਆਪੇ ਆਪਿ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ਹੈ ਨਾ ਓਪਤਿ ਹੋਈ ॥
tadahu aape aap nirankaar hai naa opat hoee |

At that time, only the Formless Lord Himself existed - there was no creation.

ਜਿਉ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਤਿਵੈ ਕਰੇ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਈ ॥੧॥
jiau tis bhaavai tivai kare tis bin avar na koee |1|

As it pleased Him, so did He act; without Him, there was no other. ||1||

He never perishes; He does not come or go in reincarnation.

So serve Him, forever and ever; He is contained in all.

ਅਵਰੁ ਦੂਜਾ ਕਿਉ ਸੇਵੀਐ ਜੰਮੈ ਤੈ ਮਰਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
avar doojaa kiau seveeai jamai tai mar jaae |

Why serve another who is born, and then dies?

ਨਿਹਫਲੁ ਤਿਨ ਕਾ ਜੀਵਿਆ ਜਿ ਖਸਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਹਿ ਆਪਣਾ ਅਵਰੀ ਕਉ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇ ॥
nihafal tin kaa jeeviaa ji khasam na jaaneh aapanaa avaree kau chit laae |

Fruitless is the life of those who do not know their Lord and Master, and who center their consciousness on others.

ਕਥਨੀ ਬਦਨੀ ਕਰਤਾ ਫਿਰੈ ਹੁਕਮੈ ਮੂਲਿ ਨ ਬੁਝਈ ਅੰਧਾ ਕਚੁ ਨਿਕਚੁ ॥੨॥
kathanee badanee karataa firai hukamai mool na bujhee andhaa kach nikach |2|

He wanders around babbling and speaking, but he does not understand the Lord's Command at all. He is blind, the falsest of the false. ||2||

Loaded with so very many stones of sin, how can the boat cross over?

ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਭਗਤੀ ਰਤਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਰਿ ਉਤਾਰੀ ॥
anadin bhagatee ratiaa har paar utaaree |

Those who are attuned to the Lord's devotional worship night and day are carried across.

O Kabeer, the gate of liberation is narrow, less than one-tenth of a mustard seed.

ਮਨੁ ਤਉ ਮੈਗਲੁ ਹੋਇ ਰਹਾ ਨਿਕਸਿਆ ਕਿਉ ਕਰਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
man tau maigal hoe rahaa nikasiaa kiau kar jaae |

The mind has become as big as an elephant; how can it pass through this gate?

ਐਸਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਜੇ ਮਿਲੈ ਤੁਠਾ ਕਰੇ ਪਸਾਉ ॥
aaisaa satigur je milai tutthaa kare pasaau |

If one meets such a True Guru, by His Pleasure, He shows His Mercy.
