When the True Guru is pleased, we obtain the Perfect, Unseen, Unknowable Lord. ||1||Pause||

anadin sach salaahanaa sache ke gun gaau |

Night and day, I praise the True One; I sing the Glorious Praises of the True One.

ਸਚੁ ਖਾਣਾ ਸਚੁ ਪੈਨਣਾ ਸਚੇ ਸਚਾ ਨਾਉ ॥੨॥
sach khaanaa sach painanaa sache sachaa naau |2|

True is the food, and true are the clothes, of those who chant the True Name of the True One. ||2||

ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਨ ਵਿਸਰੈ ਸਫਲੁ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਆਪਿ ॥
saas giraas na visarai safal moorat gur aap |

With each breath and morsel of food, do not forget the Guru, the Embodiment of Fulfillment.

ਗੁਰ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦਿਸਈ ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਤਿਸੁ ਜਾਪਿ ॥
gur jevadd avar na disee aatth pahar tis jaap |

None is seen to be as great as the Guru. Meditate on Him twenty-four hours a day.

ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਤਾ ਪਾਈਐ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਗੁਣਤਾਸਿ ॥੩॥

gur paramesar ek hai sabh meh rahiaa samaae |

The Guru and the Transcendent Lord are one and the same, pervading and permeating amongst all.

ਜਿਨ ਕਉ ਪੂਰਬਿ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਸੇਈ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇ ॥
jin kau poorab likhiaa seee naam dhiaae |

Those who have such pre-ordained destiny, meditate on the Naam.

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

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

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਘਰੁ ੧ ਅਸਟਪਦੀਆ ॥
sireeraag mahalaa 1 ghar 1 asattapadeea |

Siree Raag, First Mehl, First House, Ashtpadheeyaa:

ਆਖਿ ਆਖਿ ਮਨੁ ਵਾਵਣਾ ਜਿਉ ਜਿਉ ਜਾਪੈ ਵਾਇ ॥
aakh aakh man vaavanaa jiau jiau jaapai vaae |

I speak and chant His Praises, vibrating the instrument of my mind. The more I know Him, the more I vibrate it.

ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਵਾਇ ਸੁਣਾਈਐ ਸੋ ਕੇਵਡੁ ਕਿਤੁ ਥਾਇ ॥
jis no vaae sunaaeeai so kevadd kit thaae |

The One, unto whom we vibrate and sing-how great is He, and where is His Place?

ਆਖਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਜੇਤੜੇ ਸਭਿ ਆਖਿ ਰਹੇ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥੧॥
aakhan vaale jetarre sabh aakh rahe liv laae |1|

Those who speak of Him and praise Him-they all continue speaking of Him with love. ||1||

ਬਾਬਾ ਅਲਹੁ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰੁ ॥
baabaa alahu agam apaar |

O Baba, the Lord Allah is Inaccessible and Infinite.

ਪਾਕੀ ਨਾਈ ਪਾਕ ਥਾਇ ਸਚਾ ਪਰਵਦਿਗਾਰੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
paakee naaee paak thaae sachaa paravadigaar |1| rahaau |

Sacred is His Name, and Sacred is His Place. He is the True Cherisher. ||1||Pause||

ਤੇਰਾ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਪੀ ਕੇਤੜਾ ਲਿਖਿ ਨ ਜਾਣੈ ਕੋਇ ॥
teraa hukam na jaapee ketarraa likh na jaanai koe |

The extent of Your Command cannot be seen; no one knows how to write it.

ਜੇ ਸਉ ਸਾਇਰ ਮੇਲੀਅਹਿ ਤਿਲੁ ਨ ਪੁਜਾਵਹਿ ਰੋਇ ॥
je sau saaeir meleeeh til na pujaaveh roe |

Even if a hundred poets met together, they could not describe even a tiny bit of it.

ਕੀਮਤਿ ਕਿਨੈ ਨ ਪਾਈਆ ਸਭਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਆਖਹਿ ਸੋਇ ॥੨॥
keemat kinai na paaeea sabh sun sun aakheh soe |2|

No one has found Your Value; they all merely write what they have heard again and again. ||2||

ਪੀਰ ਪੈਕਾਮਰ ਸਾਲਕ ਸਾਦਕ ਸੁਹਦੇ ਅਉਰੁ ਸਹੀਦ ॥
peer paikaamar saalak saadak suhade aaur saheed |

The Pirs, the Prophets, the spiritual teachers, the faithful, the innocents and the martyrs,

ਸੇਖ ਮਸਾਇਕ ਕਾਜੀ ਮੁਲਾ ਦਰਿ ਦਰਵੇਸ ਰਸੀਦ ॥
sekh masaaeik kaajee mulaa dar daraves raseed |

the Shaikhs, the mystics, the Qazis, the Mullahs and the Dervishes at His Door

ਬਰਕਤਿ ਤਿਨ ਕਉ ਅਗਲੀ ਪੜਦੇ ਰਹਨਿ ਦਰੂਦ ॥੩॥
barakat tin kau agalee parrade rahan darood |3|

-they are blessed all the more as they continue reading their prayers in praise to Him. ||3||

ਪੁਛਿ ਨ ਸਾਜੇ ਪੁਛਿ ਨ ਢਾਹੇ ਪੁਛਿ ਨ ਦੇਵੈ ਲੇਇ ॥
puchh na saaje puchh na dtaahe puchh na devai lee |

He seeks no advice when He builds; He seeks no advice when He destroys. He seeks no advice while giving or taking.

ਆਪਣੀ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੈ ਆਪੇ ਕਰਣੁ ਕਰੇਇ ॥
aapanee kudarat aape jaanai aape karan karee |

He alone knows His Creative Power; He Himself does all deeds.

ਸਭਨਾ ਵੇਖੈ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਜੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਤੈ ਦੇਇ ॥੪॥
sabhanaa vekhai nadar kar jai bhaavai tai dee |4|

He beholds all in His Vision. He gives to those with whom He is pleased. ||4||

ਥਾਵਾ ਨਾਵ ਨ ਜਾਣੀਅਹਿ ਨਾਵਾ ਕੇਵਡੁ ਨਾਉ ॥
thaavaa naav na jaaneeeh naavaa kevadd naau |

His Place and His Name are not known, no one knows how great is His Name.

ਜਿਥੈ ਵਸੈ ਮੇਰਾ ਪਾਤਿਸਾਹੁ ਸੋ ਕੇਵਡੁ ਹੈ ਥਾਉ ॥
jithai vasai meraa paatisaahu so kevadd hai thaau |

How great is that place where my Sovereign Lord dwells?

ਅੰਬੜਿ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਸਕਈ ਹਉ ਕਿਸ ਨੋ ਪੁਛਣਿ ਜਾਉ ॥੫॥
anbarr koe na sakee hau kis no puchhan jaau |5|

No one can reach it; whom shall I go and ask? ||5||

ਵਰਨਾ ਵਰਨ ਨ ਭਾਵਨੀ ਜੇ ਕਿਸੈ ਵਡਾ ਕਰੇਇ ॥
varanaa varan na bhaavanee je kisai vaddaa karee |

One class of people does not like the other, when one has been made great.

ਵਡੇ ਹਥਿ ਵਡਿਆਈਆ ਜੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਤੈ ਦੇਇ ॥
vadde hath vaddiaaeea jai bhaavai tai dee |

Greatness is only in His Great Hands; He gives to those with whom He is pleased.

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਵਾਰੇ ਆਪਣੈ ਚਸਾ ਨ ਢਿਲ ਕਰੇਇ ॥੬॥
hukam savaare aapanai chasaa na dtil karee |6|

By the Hukam of His Command, He Himself regenerates, without a moment's delay. ||6||

ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਆਖੈ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਲੈਣੈ ਕੈ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ ॥
sabh ko aakhai bahut bahut lainai kai veechaar |

Everyone cries out, "More! More!", with the idea of receiving.

ਕੇਵਡੁ ਦਾਤਾ ਆਖੀਐ ਦੇ ਕੈ ਰਹਿਆ ਸੁਮਾਰਿ ॥
kevadd daataa aakheeai de kai rahiaa sumaar |

How great should we call the Giver? His Gifts are beyond estimation.

ਨਾਨਕ ਤੋਟਿ ਨ ਆਵਈ ਤੇਰੇ ਜੁਗਹ ਜੁਗਹ ਭੰਡਾਰ ॥੭॥੧॥
naanak tott na aavee tere jugah jugah bhanddaar |7|1|

O Nanak, there is no deficiency; Your Storehouses are filled to overflowing, age after age. ||7||1||

ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
mahalaa 1 |

First Mehl:

ਸਭੇ ਕੰਤ ਮਹੇਲੀਆ ਸਗਲੀਆ ਕਰਹਿ ਸੀਗਾਰੁ ॥
sabhe kant maheleea sagaleea kareh seegaar |

All are brides of the Husband Lord; all decorate themselves for Him.
