ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਸਬਦਿ ਪਛਾਣੀਐ ਸਾਚਿ ਰਤੇ ਗੁਰ ਵਾਕਿ ॥
har jeeo sabad pachhaaneeai saach rate gur vaak |

Through the Shabad, they recognize the Dear Lord; through the Guru's Word, they are attuned to Truth.

ਤਿਤੁ ਤਨਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਲਗਈ ਸਚ ਘਰਿ ਜਿਸੁ ਓਤਾਕੁ ॥
tit tan mail na lagee sach ghar jis otaak |

Filth does not stick to the body of one who has secured a dwelling in his True Home.

ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਕਿਆ ਸਾਕੁ ॥੫॥
nadar kare sach paaeeai bin naavai kiaa saak |5|

When the Lord bestows His Glance of Grace, we obtain the True Name. Without the Name, who are our relatives? ||5||

ਜਿਨੀ ਸਚੁ ਪਛਾਣਿਆ ਸੇ ਸੁਖੀਏ ਜੁਗ ਚਾਰਿ ॥
jinee sach pachhaaniaa se sukhee jug chaar |

Those who have realized the Truth are at peace throughout the four ages.

ਹਉਮੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਮਾਰਿ ਕੈ ਸਚੁ ਰਖਿਆ ਉਰ ਧਾਰਿ ॥
haumai trisanaa maar kai sach rakhiaa ur dhaar |

Subduing their egotism and desires, they keep the True Name enshrined in their hearts.

ਜਗ ਮਹਿ ਲਾਹਾ ਏਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਗੁਰ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ ॥੬॥
jag meh laahaa ek naam paaeeai gur veechaar |6|

In this world, the only real profit is the Name of the One Lord; it is earned by contemplating the Guru. ||6||

ਸਾਚਉ ਵਖਰੁ ਲਾਦੀਐ ਲਾਭੁ ਸਦਾ ਸਚੁ ਰਾਸਿ ॥
saachau vakhar laadeeai laabh sadaa sach raas |

Loading the Merchandise of the True Name, you shall gather in your profits forever with the Capital of Truth.

ਸਾਚੀ ਦਰਗਹ ਬੈਸਈ ਭਗਤਿ ਸਚੀ ਅਰਦਾਸਿ ॥
saachee daragah baisee bhagat sachee aradaas |

In the Court of the True One, you shall sit in truthful devotion and prayer.

ਪਤਿ ਸਿਉ ਲੇਖਾ ਨਿਬੜੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਰਗਾਸਿ ॥੭॥
pat siau lekhaa nibarrai raam naam paragaas |7|

Your account shall be settled with honor, in the Radiant Light of the Name of the Lord. ||7||

ਊਚਾ ਊਚਉ ਆਖੀਐ ਕਹਉ ਨ ਦੇਖਿਆ ਜਾਇ ॥
aoochaa aoochau aakheeai khau na dekhiaa jaae |

The Lord is said to be the Highest of the High; no one can perceive Him.

ਜਹ ਦੇਖਾ ਤਹ ਏਕੁ ਤੂੰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਦੀਆ ਦਿਖਾਇ ॥
jah dekhaa tah ek toon satigur deea dikhaae |

Wherever I look, I see only You. The True Guru has inspired me to see You.

ਜੋਤਿ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ ॥੮॥੩॥
jot nirantar jaaneeai naanak sahaj subhaae |8|3|

The Divine Light within is revealed, O Nanak, through this intuitive understanding. ||8||3||

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
sireeraag mahalaa 1 |

Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਮਛੁਲੀ ਜਾਲੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਿਆ ਸਰੁ ਖਾਰਾ ਅਸਗਾਹੁ ॥
machhulee jaal na jaaniaa sar khaaraa asagaahu |

The fish did not notice the net in the deep and salty sea.

ਅਤਿ ਸਿਆਣੀ ਸੋਹਣੀ ਕਿਉ ਕੀਤੋ ਵੇਸਾਹੁ ॥
at siaanee sohanee kiau keeto vesaahu |

It was so clever and beautiful, but why was it so confident?

ਕੀਤੇ ਕਾਰਣਿ ਪਾਕੜੀ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਟਲੈ ਸਿਰਾਹੁ ॥੧॥
keete kaaran paakarree kaal na ttalai siraahu |1|

By its actions it was caught, and now death cannot be turned away from its head. ||1||

ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਇਉ ਸਿਰਿ ਜਾਣਹੁ ਕਾਲੁ ॥
bhaaee re iau sir jaanahu kaal |

O Siblings of Destiny, just like this, see death hovering over your own heads!

ਜਿਉ ਮਛੀ ਤਿਉ ਮਾਣਸਾ ਪਵੈ ਅਚਿੰਤਾ ਜਾਲੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jiau machhee tiau maanasaa pavai achintaa jaal |1| rahaau |

People are just like this fish; unaware, the noose of death descends upon them. ||1||Pause||

ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਬਾਧੋ ਕਾਲ ਕੋ ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਕਾਲੁ ਅਫਾਰੁ ॥
sabh jag baadho kaal ko bin gur kaal afaar |

The whole world is bound by death; without the Guru, death cannot be avoided.

ਸਚਿ ਰਤੇ ਸੇ ਉਬਰੇ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਛੋਡਿ ਵਿਕਾਰ ॥
sach rate se ubare dubidhaa chhodd vikaar |

Those who are attuned to Truth are saved; they renounce duality and corruption.

ਹਉ ਤਿਨ ਕੈ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਣੈ ਦਰਿ ਸਚੈ ਸਚਿਆਰ ॥੨॥
hau tin kai balihaaranai dar sachai sachiaar |2|

I am a sacrifice to those who are found to be Truthful in the True Court. ||2||

ਸੀਚਾਨੇ ਜਿਉ ਪੰਖੀਆ ਜਾਲੀ ਬਧਿਕ ਹਾਥਿ ॥
seechaane jiau pankheea jaalee badhik haath |

Think of the hawk preying on the birds, and the net in the hands of the hunter.

ਗੁਰਿ ਰਾਖੇ ਸੇ ਉਬਰੇ ਹੋਰਿ ਫਾਥੇ ਚੋਗੈ ਸਾਥਿ ॥
gur raakhe se ubare hor faathe chogai saath |

Those who are protected by the Guru are saved; the others are caught by the bait.

ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਚੁਣਿ ਸੁਟੀਅਹਿ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਸੰਗੀ ਸਾਥਿ ॥੩॥
bin naavai chun sutteeeh koe na sangee saath |3|

Without the Name, they are picked up and thrown away; they have no friends or companions. ||3||

ਸਚੋ ਸਚਾ ਆਖੀਐ ਸਚੇ ਸਚਾ ਥਾਨੁ ॥
sacho sachaa aakheeai sache sachaa thaan |

God is said to be the Truest of the True; His Place is the Truest of the True.

ਜਿਨੀ ਸਚਾ ਮੰਨਿਆ ਤਿਨ ਮਨਿ ਸਚੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ॥
jinee sachaa maniaa tin man sach dhiaan |

Those who obey the True One-their minds abide in true meditation.

ਮਨਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਸੂਚੇ ਜਾਣੀਅਹਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਿਨਾ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥੪॥

Those who become Gurmukh, and obtain spiritual wisdom-their minds and mouths are known to be pure. ||4||

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਅਗੈ ਅਰਦਾਸਿ ਕਰਿ ਸਾਜਨੁ ਦੇਇ ਮਿਲਾਇ ॥
satigur agai aradaas kar saajan dee milaae |

Offer your most sincere prayers to the True Guru, so that He may unite you with your Best Friend.

ਸਾਜਨਿ ਮਿਲਿਐ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਮਦੂਤ ਮੁਏ ਬਿਖੁ ਖਾਇ ॥
saajan miliaai sukh paaeaa jamadoot mue bikh khaae |

Meeting your Best Friend, you shall find peace; the Messenger of Death shall take poison and die.

ਨਾਵੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਹਉ ਵਸਾਂ ਨਾਉ ਵਸੈ ਮਨਿ ਆਇ ॥੫॥
naavai andar hau vasaan naau vasai man aae |5|

I dwell deep within the Name; the Name has come to dwell within my mind. ||5||

ਬਾਝੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਬਾਰੁ ਹੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਬੂਝ ਨ ਪਾਇ ॥
baajh guroo gubaar hai bin sabadai boojh na paae |

Without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness; without the Shabad, understanding is not obtained.

ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਪਰਗਾਸੁ ਹੋਇ ਸਚਿ ਰਹੈ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥
guramatee paragaas hoe sach rahai liv laae |

Through the Guru's Teachings, you shall be enlightened; remain absorbed in the Love of the True Lord.

ਤਿਥੈ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਸੰਚਰੈ ਜੋਤੀ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੬॥
tithai kaal na sancharai jotee jot samaae |6|

Death does not go there; your light shall merge with the Light. ||6||

ਤੂੰਹੈ ਸਾਜਨੁ ਤੂੰ ਸੁਜਾਣੁ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਮੇਲਣਹਾਰੁ ॥
toonhai saajan toon sujaan toon aape melanahaar |

You are my Best Friend; You are All-knowing. You are the One who unites us with Yourself.

ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਸਾਲਾਹੀਐ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਪਾਰਾਵਾਰੁ ॥
gurasabadee saalaaheeai ant na paaraavaar |

Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, we praise You; You have no end or limitation.

ਤਿਥੈ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਅਪੜੈ ਜਿਥੈ ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਅਪਾਰੁ ॥੭॥
tithai kaal na aparrai jithai gur kaa sabad apaar |7|

Death does not reach that place, where the Infinite Word of the Guru's Shabad resounds. ||7||

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਸਭੇ ਊਪਜਹਿ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਕਾਰ ਕਮਾਹਿ ॥
hukamee sabhe aoopajeh hukamee kaar kamaeh |

By the Hukam of His Command, all are created. By His Command, actions are performed.

ਹੁਕਮੀ ਕਾਲੈ ਵਸਿ ਹੈ ਹੁਕਮੀ ਸਾਚਿ ਸਮਾਹਿ ॥
hukamee kaalai vas hai hukamee saach samaeh |

By His Command, all are subject to death; by His Command, they merge in Truth.

ਨਾਨਕ ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਸੋ ਥੀਐ ਇਨਾ ਜੰਤਾ ਵਸਿ ਕਿਛੁ ਨਾਹਿ ॥੮॥੪॥
naanak jo tis bhaavai so theeai inaa jantaa vas kichh naeh |8|4|

O Nanak, whatever pleases His Will comes to pass. Nothing is in the hands of these beings. ||8||4||

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥

Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਮਨਿ ਜੂਠੈ ਤਨਿ ਜੂਠਿ ਹੈ ਜਿਹਵਾ ਜੂਠੀ ਹੋਇ ॥
man jootthai tan jootth hai jihavaa jootthee hoe |

If the mind is polluted, then the body is polluted, and the tongue is polluted as well.
