Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹਣੀ ਸੁਤ ਬੰਧਪ ਘਰ ਨਾਰਿ ॥
trisanaa maaeaa mohanee sut bandhap ghar naar |

The enticing desire for Maya leads people to become emotionally attached to their children, relatives, households and spouses.

Whatever is seen shall pass away. So do not be attached to this false show.

vaatt vattaaoo aaeaa nit chaladaa saath dekh |2|

Like a traveller in his travels, you have come. Behold the caravan leaving each day. ||2||

Many preach sermons, but without the Guru, understanding is not obtained.

The eight metals of the King are made into coins by the Word of His Shabad.

ਆਪੇ ਪਰਖੇ ਪਾਰਖੂ ਪਵੈ ਖਜਾਨੈ ਰਾਸਿ ॥੪॥
aape parakhe paarakhoo pavai khajaanai raas |4|

The Assayer Himself assays them, and He places the genuine ones in His Treasury. ||4||

ਤੇਰੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਸਭ ਡਿਠੀ ਠੋਕਿ ਵਜਾਇ ॥
teree keemat naa pavai sabh dditthee tthok vajaae |

Your Value cannot be appraised; I have seen and tested everything.

ਕਹਣੈ ਹਾਥ ਨ ਲਭਈ ਸਚਿ ਟਿਕੈ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਇ ॥

Without the Guru, spiritual wisdom is not obtained; other tastes are poison.

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਣ ਕਾਮਿ ਨ ਆਵਈ ਮਾਇਆ ਫੀਕਾ ਸਾਦੁ ॥੬॥
bin gun kaam na aavee maaeaa feekaa saad |6|

Without virtue, nothing is of any use. The taste of Maya is bland and insipid. ||6||

ਆਸਾ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਜੰਮਿਆ ਆਸਾ ਰਸ ਕਸ ਖਾਇ ॥
aasaa andar jamiaa aasaa ras kas khaae |

Through desire, people are cast into the womb and reborn. Through desire, they taste the sweet and sour flavors.

ਆਸਾ ਬੰਧਿ ਚਲਾਈਐ ਮੁਹੇ ਮੁਹਿ ਚੋਟਾ ਖਾਇ ॥
aasaa bandh chalaaeeai muhe muhi chottaa khaae |

Bound by desire, they are led on, beaten and struck on their faces and mouths.
