Sri Guru Granth Sahib

ਮਨਮੁਖੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਆਪਣੇ ਧੀਆ ਪੂਤ ਸੰਜੋਗੁ ॥
manamukh jaanai aapane dheea poot sanjog |

The self-willed manmukh looks upon his daughters, sons and relatives as his own.

ਨਾਰੀ ਦੇਖਿ ਵਿਗਾਸੀਅਹਿ ਨਾਲੇ ਹਰਖੁ ਸੁ ਸੋਗੁ ॥
naaree dekh vigaaseeeh naale harakh su sog |

Gazing upon his wife, he is pleased. But along with happiness, they bring grief.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਰੰਗਾਵਲੇ ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਭੋਗੁ ॥੩॥
guramukh sabad rangaavale ahinis har ras bhog |3|

The Gurmukhs are attuned to the Word of the Shabad. Day and night, they enjoy the Sublime Essence of the Lord. ||3||

ਚਿਤੁ ਚਲੈ ਵਿਤੁ ਜਾਵਣੋ ਸਾਕਤ ਡੋਲਿ ਡੋਲਾਇ ॥
chit chalai vit jaavano saakat ddol ddolaae |

The consciousness of the wicked, faithless cynics wanders around in search of transitory wealth, unstable and distracted.

ਬਾਹਰਿ ਢੂੰਢਿ ਵਿਗੁਚੀਐ ਘਰ ਮਹਿ ਵਸਤੁ ਸੁਥਾਇ ॥
baahar dtoondt vigucheeai ghar meh vasat suthaae |

Searching outside of themselves, they are ruined; the object of their search is in that sacred place within the home of the heart.

ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਕਰਿ ਮੁਸੀ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਪਲੈ ਪਾਇ ॥੪॥
manamukh haumai kar musee guramukh palai paae |4|

The self-willed manmukhs, in their ego, miss it; the Gurmukhs receive it in their laps. ||4||

ਸਾਕਤ ਨਿਰਗੁਣਿਆਰਿਆ ਆਪਣਾ ਮੂਲੁ ਪਛਾਣੁ ॥
saakat niraguniaariaa aapanaa mool pachhaan |

You worthless, faithless cynic-recognize your own origin!

ਰਕਤੁ ਬਿੰਦੁ ਕਾ ਇਹੁ ਤਨੋ ਅਗਨੀ ਪਾਸਿ ਪਿਰਾਣੁ ॥
rakat bind kaa ihu tano aganee paas piraan |

This body is made of blood and semen. It shall be consigned to the fire in the end.

ਪਵਣੈ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਦੇਹੁਰੀ ਮਸਤਕਿ ਸਚੁ ਨੀਸਾਣੁ ॥੫॥
pavanai kai vas dehuree masatak sach neesaan |5|

The body is under the power of the breath, according to the True Sign inscribed upon your forehead. ||5||

ਬਹੁਤਾ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਮੰਗੀਐ ਮੁਆ ਨ ਲੋੜੈ ਕੋਇ ॥
bahutaa jeevan mangeeai muaa na lorrai koe |

Everyone begs for a long life-no one wishes to die.

ਸੁਖ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਤਿਸੁ ਆਖੀਐ ਜਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਸੋਇ ॥
sukh jeevan tis aakheeai jis guramukh vasiaa soe |

A life of peace and comfort comes to that Gurmukh, within whom God dwells.

ਨਾਮ ਵਿਹੂਣੇ ਕਿਆ ਗਣੀ ਜਿਸੁ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰ ਦਰਸੁ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥੬॥
naam vihoone kiaa ganee jis har gur daras na hoe |6|

Without the Naam, what good those who do not have the Blessed Vision, the Darshan of the Lord and Guru? ||6||

ਜਿਉ ਸੁਪਨੈ ਨਿਸਿ ਭੁਲੀਐ ਜਬ ਲਗਿ ਨਿਦ੍ਰਾ ਹੋਇ ॥
jiau supanai nis bhuleeai jab lag nidraa hoe |

In their dreams at night, people wander around as long as they sleep;

ਇਉ ਸਰਪਨਿ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਜੀਅੜਾ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਦੋਇ ॥
eiau sarapan kai vas jeearraa antar haumai doe |

just so, they are under the power of the snake Maya, as long as their hearts are filled with ego and duality.

ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਹੋਇ ਵੀਚਾਰੀਐ ਸੁਪਨਾ ਇਹੁ ਜਗੁ ਲੋਇ ॥੭॥
guramat hoe veechaareeai supanaa ihu jag loe |7|

Through the Guru's Teachings, they come to understand and see that this world is just a dream. ||7||

ਅਗਨਿ ਮਰੈ ਜਲੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਜਿਉ ਬਾਰਿਕ ਦੂਧੈ ਮਾਇ ॥
agan marai jal paaeeai jiau baarik doodhai maae |

As thirst is quenched with water, and the baby is satisfied with mother's milk,

ਬਿਨੁ ਜਲ ਕਮਲ ਸੁ ਨਾ ਥੀਐ ਬਿਨੁ ਜਲ ਮੀਨੁ ਮਰਾਇ ॥
bin jal kamal su naa theeai bin jal meen maraae |

and as the lotus does not exist without water, and as the fish dies without water

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਸਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਜੀਵਾ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ॥੮॥੧੫॥
naanak guramukh har ras milai jeevaa har gun gaae |8|15|

-O Nanak, so does the Gurmukh live, receiving the Sublime Essence of the Lord, and singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||8||15||

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
sireeraag mahalaa 1 |

Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਡੂੰਗਰੁ ਦੇਖਿ ਡਰਾਵਣੋ ਪੇਈਅੜੈ ਡਰੀਆਸੁ ॥
ddoongar dekh ddaraavano peeearrai ddareeaas |

Beholding the terrifying mountain in this world of my father's home, I am terrified.

ਊਚਉ ਪਰਬਤੁ ਗਾਖੜੋ ਨਾ ਪਉੜੀ ਤਿਤੁ ਤਾਸੁ ॥
aoochau parabat gaakharro naa paurree tith taas |

It is so difficult to climb this high mountain; there is no ladder which reaches up there.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਜਾਣਿਆ ਗੁਰਿ ਮੇਲੀ ਤਰੀਆਸੁ ॥੧॥
guramukh antar jaaniaa gur melee tareeaas |1|

But as Gurmukh, I know that it is within my self; the Guru has brought me to Union, and so I cross over. ||1||

ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਭਵਜਲੁ ਬਿਖਮੁ ਡਰਾਂਉ ॥
bhaaee re bhavajal bikham ddaraanau |

O Siblings of Destiny, the terrifying world-ocean is so difficult to cross-I am terrified!

ਪੂਰਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਰਸਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਗੁਰੁ ਤਾਰੇ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਉ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
pooraa satigur ras milai gur taare har naau |1| rahaau |

The Perfect True Guru, in His Pleasure, has met with me; the Guru has saved me, through the Name of the Lord. ||1||Pause||

ਚਲਾ ਚਲਾ ਜੇ ਕਰੀ ਜਾਣਾ ਚਲਣਹਾਰੁ ॥
chalaa chalaa je karee jaanaa chalanahaar |

I may say, "I am going, I am going", but I know that, in the end, I must really go.

ਜੋ ਆਇਆ ਸੋ ਚਲਸੀ ਅਮਰੁ ਸੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਕਰਤਾਰੁ ॥
jo aaeaa so chalasee amar su gur karataar |

Whoever comes must also go. Only the Guru and the Creator are Eternal.

ਭੀ ਸਚਾ ਸਾਲਾਹਣਾ ਸਚੈ ਥਾਨਿ ਪਿਆਰੁ ॥੨॥
bhee sachaa saalaahanaa sachai thaan piaar |2|

So praise the True One continually, and love His Place of Truth. ||2||

ਦਰ ਘਰ ਮਹਲਾ ਸੋਹਣੇ ਪਕੇ ਕੋਟ ਹਜਾਰ ॥
dar ghar mahalaa sohane pake kott hajaar |

Beautiful gates, houses and palaces, solidly built forts,

ਹਸਤੀ ਘੋੜੇ ਪਾਖਰੇ ਲਸਕਰ ਲਖ ਅਪਾਰ ॥
hasatee ghorre paakhare lasakar lakh apaar |

elephants, saddled horses, hundreds of thousands of uncounted armies

ਕਿਸ ਹੀ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਚਲਿਆ ਖਪਿ ਖਪਿ ਮੁਏ ਅਸਾਰ ॥੩॥
kis hee naal na chaliaa khap khap mue asaar |3|

-none of these will go along with anyone in the end, and yet, the fools bother themselves to exhaustion with these, and then die. ||3||

ਸੁਇਨਾ ਰੁਪਾ ਸੰਚੀਐ ਮਾਲੁ ਜਾਲੁ ਜੰਜਾਲੁ ॥
sueinaa rupaa sancheeai maal jaal janjaal |

You may gather gold and sliver, but wealth is just a net of entanglement.

ਸਭ ਜਗ ਮਹਿ ਦੋਹੀ ਫੇਰੀਐ ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਸਿਰਿ ਕਾਲੁ ॥
sabh jag meh dohee fereeai bin naavai sir kaal |

You may beat the drum and proclaim authority over the whole world, but without the Name, death hovers over your head.

ਪਿੰਡੁ ਪੜੈ ਜੀਉ ਖੇਲਸੀ ਬਦਫੈਲੀ ਕਿਆ ਹਾਲੁ ॥੪॥
pindd parrai jeeo khelasee badafailee kiaa haal |4|

When the body falls, the play of life is over; what shall be the condition of the evil-doers then? ||4||

ਪੁਤਾ ਦੇਖਿ ਵਿਗਸੀਐ ਨਾਰੀ ਸੇਜ ਭਤਾਰ ॥
putaa dekh vigaseeai naaree sej bhataar |

The husband is delighted seeing his sons, and his wife upon his bed.

ਚੋਆ ਚੰਦਨੁ ਲਾਈਐ ਕਾਪੜੁ ਰੂਪੁ ਸੀਗਾਰੁ ॥
choaa chandan laaeeai kaaparr roop seegaar |

He applies sandalwood and scented oils, and dresses himself in his beautiful clothes.

ਖੇਹੂ ਖੇਹ ਰਲਾਈਐ ਛੋਡਿ ਚਲੈ ਘਰ ਬਾਰੁ ॥੫॥
khehoo kheh ralaaeeai chhodd chalai ghar baar |5|

But dust shall mix with dust, and he shall depart, leaving hearth and home behind. ||5||

ਮਹਰ ਮਲੂਕ ਕਹਾਈਐ ਰਾਜਾ ਰਾਉ ਕਿ ਖਾਨੁ ॥
mahar malook kahaaeeai raajaa raau ki khaan |

He may be called a chief, an emperor, a king, a governor or a lord;

ਚਉਧਰੀ ਰਾਉ ਸਦਾਈਐ ਜਲਿ ਬਲੀਐ ਅਭਿਮਾਨ ॥
chaudharee raau sadaaeeai jal baleeai abhimaan |

he may present himself as a leader or a chief, but this just burns him in the fire of egotistical pride.

ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿਆ ਜਿਉ ਡਵਿ ਦਧਾ ਕਾਨੁ ॥੬॥
manamukh naam visaariaa jiau ddav dadhaa kaan |6|

The self-willed manmukh has forgotten the Naam. He is like straw, burning in the forest fire. ||6||

ਹਉਮੈ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਜਾਇਸੀ ਜੋ ਆਇਆ ਜਗ ਮਾਹਿ ॥
haumai kar kar jaaeisee jo aaeaa jag maeh |

Whoever comes into the world and indulges in ego, must depart.
