ਸੂਰੇ ਸੇਈ ਆਗੈ ਆਖੀਅਹਿ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਸਾਚੀ ਮਾਣੋ ॥
soore seee aagai aakheeeh daragah paaveh saachee maano |

They alone are acclaimed as brave warriors in the world hereafter, who receive true honor in the Court of the Lord.

ਦਰਗਹ ਮਾਣੁ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਪਤਿ ਸਿਉ ਜਾਵਹਿ ਆਗੈ ਦੂਖੁ ਨ ਲਾਗੈ ॥
daragah maan paaveh pat siau jaaveh aagai dookh na laagai |

They are honored in the Court of the Lord; they depart with honor, and they do not suffer pain in the world hereafter.

ਕਰਿ ਏਕੁ ਧਿਆਵਹਿ ਤਾਂ ਫਲੁ ਪਾਵਹਿ ਜਿਤੁ ਸੇਵਿਐ ਭਉ ਭਾਗੈ ॥
kar ek dhiaaveh taan fal paaveh jit seviaai bhau bhaagai |

They meditate on the One Lord, and obtain the fruits of their rewards. Serving the Lord, their fear is dispelled.

ਊਚਾ ਨਹੀ ਕਹਣਾ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਰਹਣਾ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੈ ਜਾਣੋ ॥
aoochaa nahee kahanaa man meh rahanaa aape jaanai jaano |

Do not indulge in egotism, and dwell within your own mind; the Knower Himself knows everything.

ਮਰਣੁ ਮੁਣਸਾਂ ਸੂਰਿਆ ਹਕੁ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਹੋਇ ਮਰਹਿ ਪਰਵਾਣੋ ॥੩॥
maran munasaan sooriaa hak hai jo hoe mareh paravaano |3|

The death of brave heroes is blessed, if it is approved by God. ||3||

ਨਾਨਕ ਕਿਸ ਨੋ ਬਾਬਾ ਰੋਈਐ ਬਾਜੀ ਹੈ ਇਹੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੋ ॥
naanak kis no baabaa roeeai baajee hai ihu sansaaro |

Nanak: for whom should we mourn, O Baba? This world is merely a play.

ਕੀਤਾ ਵੇਖੈ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਆਪਣਾ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਕਰੇ ਬੀਚਾਰੋ ॥
keetaa vekhai saahib aapanaa kudarat kare beechaaro |

The Lord Master beholds His work, and contemplates His creative potency.

ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਬੀਚਾਰੇ ਧਾਰਣ ਧਾਰੇ ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਆ ਸੋ ਜਾਣੈ ॥
kudarat beechaare dhaaran dhaare jin keea so jaanai |

He contemplates His creative potency, having established the Universe. He who created it, He alone knows.

ਆਪੇ ਵੇਖੈ ਆਪੇ ਬੂਝੈ ਆਪੇ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ॥
aape vekhai aape boojhai aape hukam pachhaanai |

He Himself beholds it, and He Himself understands it. He Himself realizes the Hukam of His Command.

ਜਿਨਿ ਕਿਛੁ ਕੀਆ ਸੋਈ ਜਾਣੈ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਰੂਪੁ ਅਪਾਰੋ ॥
jin kichh keea soee jaanai taa kaa roop apaaro |

He who created these things, He alone knows. His subtle form is infinite.

ਨਾਨਕ ਕਿਸ ਨੋ ਬਾਬਾ ਰੋਈਐ ਬਾਜੀ ਹੈ ਇਹੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੋ ॥੪॥੨॥
naanak kis no baabaa roeeai baajee hai ihu sansaaro |4|2|

Nanak: for whom should we mourn, O Baba? This world is merely a play. ||4||2||

ਵਡਹੰਸੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਦਖਣੀ ॥
vaddahans mahalaa 1 dakhanee |

Wadahans, First Mehl, Dakhanee:

ਸਚੁ ਸਿਰੰਦਾ ਸਚਾ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਸਚੜਾ ਪਰਵਦਗਾਰੋ ॥
sach sirandaa sachaa jaaneeai sacharraa paravadagaaro |

The True Creator Lord is True - know this well; He is the True Sustainer.

ਜਿਨਿ ਆਪੀਨੈ ਆਪੁ ਸਾਜਿਆ ਸਚੜਾ ਅਲਖ ਅਪਾਰੋ ॥
jin aapeenai aap saajiaa sacharraa alakh apaaro |

He Himself fashioned His Own Self; the True Lord is invisible and infinite.

ਦੁਇ ਪੁੜ ਜੋੜਿ ਵਿਛੋੜਿਅਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਬਿਨੁ ਘੋਰੁ ਅੰਧਾਰੋ ॥
due purr jorr vichhorrian gur bin ghor andhaaro |

He brought together, and then separated, the two grinding stones of the earth and the sky; without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness.

ਸੂਰਜੁ ਚੰਦੁ ਸਿਰਜਿਅਨੁ ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਚਲਤੁ ਵੀਚਾਰੋ ॥੧॥
sooraj chand sirajian ahinis chalat veechaaro |1|

He created the sun and the moon; night and day, they move according to His Thought. ||1||

ਸਚੜਾ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਚੁ ਤੂ ਸਚੜਾ ਦੇਹਿ ਪਿਆਰੋ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
sacharraa saahib sach too sacharraa dehi piaaro | rahaau |

O True Lord and Master, You are True. O True Lord, bless me with Your Love. ||Pause||

ਤੁਧੁ ਸਿਰਜੀ ਮੇਦਨੀ ਦੁਖੁ ਸੁਖੁ ਦੇਵਣਹਾਰੋ ॥
tudh sirajee medanee dukh sukh devanahaaro |

You created the Universe; You are the Giver of pain and pleasure.

ਨਾਰੀ ਪੁਰਖ ਸਿਰਜਿਐ ਬਿਖੁ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹੁ ਪਿਆਰੋ ॥
naaree purakh sirajiaai bikh maaeaa mohu piaaro |

You created woman and man, the love of poison, and emotional attachment to Maya.

ਖਾਣੀ ਬਾਣੀ ਤੇਰੀਆ ਦੇਹਿ ਜੀਆ ਆਧਾਰੋ ॥
khaanee baanee tereea dehi jeea aadhaaro |

The four sources of creation, and the power of the Word, are also of Your making. You give Support to all beings.

ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਤਖਤੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ਸਚਿ ਨਿਬੇੜਣਹਾਰੋ ॥੨॥
kudarat takhat rachaaeaa sach niberranahaaro |2|

You have made the Creation as Your Throne; You are the True Judge. ||2||

ਆਵਾ ਗਵਣੁ ਸਿਰਜਿਆ ਤੂ ਥਿਰੁ ਕਰਣੈਹਾਰੋ ॥
aavaa gavan sirajiaa too thir karanaihaaro |

You created comings and goings, but You are ever-stable, O Creator Lord.

ਜੰਮਣੁ ਮਰਣਾ ਆਇ ਗਇਆ ਬਧਿਕੁ ਜੀਉ ਬਿਕਾਰੋ ॥
jaman maranaa aae geaa badhik jeeo bikaaro |

In birth and death, in coming and going, this soul is held in bondage by corruption.

ਭੂਡੜੈ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿਆ ਬੂਡੜੈ ਕਿਆ ਤਿਸੁ ਚਾਰੋ ॥
bhooddarrai naam visaariaa booddarrai kiaa tis chaaro |

The evil person has forgotten the Naam; he has drowned - what can he do now?

ਗੁਣ ਛੋਡਿ ਬਿਖੁ ਲਦਿਆ ਅਵਗੁਣ ਕਾ ਵਣਜਾਰੋ ॥੩॥
gun chhodd bikh ladiaa avagun kaa vanajaaro |3|

Forsaking merit, he has loaded the poisonous cargo of demerits; he is a trader of sins. ||3||

ਸਦੜੇ ਆਏ ਤਿਨਾ ਜਾਨੀਆ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਚੇ ਕਰਤਾਰੋ ॥
sadarre aae tinaa jaaneea hukam sache karataaro |

The beloved soul has received the Call, the Command of the True Creator Lord.

ਨਾਰੀ ਪੁਰਖ ਵਿਛੁੰਨਿਆ ਵਿਛੁੜਿਆ ਮੇਲਣਹਾਰੋ ॥
naaree purakh vichhuniaa vichhurriaa melanahaaro |

The soul, the husband, has become separated from the body, the bride. The Lord is the Re-uniter of the separated ones.

ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਜਾਣੈ ਸੋਹਣੀਐ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਬਧੀ ਸਿਰਿ ਕਾਰੋ ॥
roop na jaanai sohaneeai hukam badhee sir kaaro |

No one cares for your beauty, O beautiful bride.; the Messenger of Death is bound only by the Lord Commander's Command.

ਬਾਲਕ ਬਿਰਧਿ ਨ ਜਾਣਨੀ ਤੋੜਨਿ ਹੇਤੁ ਪਿਆਰੋ ॥੪॥
baalak biradh na jaananee torran het piaaro |4|

He does not distinguish between young children and old people; he tears apart love and affection. ||4||

ਨਉ ਦਰ ਠਾਕੇ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਚੈ ਹੰਸੁ ਗਇਆ ਗੈਣਾਰੇ ॥
nau dar tthaake hukam sachai hans geaa gainaare |

The nine doors are closed by the True Lord's Command, and the swan-soul takes flight into the skies.

ਸਾ ਧਨ ਛੁਟੀ ਮੁਠੀ ਝੂਠਿ ਵਿਧਣੀਆ ਮਿਰਤਕੜਾ ਅੰਙਨੜੇ ਬਾਰੇ ॥
saa dhan chhuttee mutthee jhootth vidhaneea miratakarraa anganarre baare |

The body-bride is separated, and defrauded by falsehood; she is now a widow - her husband's body lies dead in the courtyard.

ਸੁਰਤਿ ਮੁਈ ਮਰੁ ਮਾਈਏ ਮਹਲ ਰੁੰਨੀ ਦਰ ਬਾਰੇ ॥
surat muee mar maaeee mahal runee dar baare |

The widow cries out at the door, "The light of my mind has gone out, O my mother, with his death."

ਰੋਵਹੁ ਕੰਤ ਮਹੇਲੀਹੋ ਸਚੇ ਕੇ ਗੁਣ ਸਾਰੇ ॥੫॥
rovahu kant maheleeho sache ke gun saare |5|

So cry out, O soul-brides of the Husband Lord, and dwell on the Glorious Praises of the True Lord. ||5||

ਜਲਿ ਮਲਿ ਜਾਨੀ ਨਾਵਾਲਿਆ ਕਪੜਿ ਪਟਿ ਅੰਬਾਰੇ ॥
jal mal jaanee naavaaliaa kaparr patt anbaare |

Her loved one is cleansed, bathed in water, and dressed in silken robes.

ਵਾਜੇ ਵਜੇ ਸਚੀ ਬਾਣੀਆ ਪੰਚ ਮੁਏ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਰੇ ॥
vaaje vaje sachee baaneea panch mue man maare |

The musicians play, and the Bani of the True Lord's Words are sung; the five relatives feel as if they too are dead, so deadened are their minds.

ਜਾਨੀ ਵਿਛੁੰਨੜੇ ਮੇਰਾ ਮਰਣੁ ਭਇਆ ਧ੍ਰਿਗੁ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥
jaanee vichhunarre meraa maran bheaa dhrig jeevan sansaare |

"Separation from my beloved is like death to me!" cries the widow. "My life in this world is cursed and worthless!"

ਜੀਵਤੁ ਮਰੈ ਸੁ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਪਿਰ ਸਚੜੈ ਹੇਤਿ ਪਿਆਰੇ ॥੬॥
jeevat marai su jaaneeai pir sacharrai het piaare |6|

But she alone is approved, who dies, while yet still alive; she lives for the sake of the Love of her Beloved. ||6||

ਤੁਸੀ ਰੋਵਹੁ ਰੋਵਣ ਆਈਹੋ ਝੂਠਿ ਮੁਠੀ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥
tusee rovahu rovan aaeeho jhootth mutthee sansaare |

So cry out in mourning, you who have come to mourn; this world is false and fraudulent.
