ਜੋਗ ਜਗ ਨਿਹਫਲ ਤਿਹ ਮਾਨਉ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਜਸੁ ਬਿਸਰਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
jog jag nihafal tih maanau jo prabh jas bisaraavai |1|

Know that Yoga and sacrificial feasts are fruitless, if one forgets the Praises of God. ||1||

ਮਾਨ ਮੋਹ ਦੋਨੋ ਕਉ ਪਰਹਰਿ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਕੇ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵੈ ॥
maan moh dono kau parahar gobind ke gun gaavai |

One who lays aside both pride and attachment, sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord of the Universe.

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਕੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ਜੀਵਨ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਕਹਾਵੈ ॥੨॥੨॥
kahu naanak ih bidh ko praanee jeevan mukat kahaavai |2|2|

Says Nanak, the mortal who does this is said to be 'jivan mukta' - liberated while yet alive. ||2||2||

ਬਿਲਾਵਲੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੯ ॥
bilaaval mahalaa 9 |

Bilaaval, Ninth Mehl:

ਜਾ ਮੈ ਭਜਨੁ ਰਾਮ ਕੋ ਨਾਹੀ ॥
jaa mai bhajan raam ko naahee |

There is no meditation on the Lord within him.

ਤਿਹ ਨਰ ਜਨਮੁ ਅਕਾਰਥੁ ਖੋਇਆ ਯਹ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਮਨ ਮਾਹੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
tih nar janam akaarath khoeaa yah raakhahu man maahee |1| rahaau |

That man wastes his life uselessly - keep this in mind. ||1||Pause||

ਤੀਰਥ ਕਰੈ ਬ੍ਰਤ ਫੁਨਿ ਰਾਖੈ ਨਹ ਮਨੂਆ ਬਸਿ ਜਾ ਕੋ ॥
teerath karai brat fun raakhai nah manooaa bas jaa ko |

He bathes at sacred shrines of pilgrimage, and adheres to fasts, but he has no control over his mind.

ਨਿਹਫਲ ਧਰਮੁ ਤਾਹਿ ਤੁਮ ਮਾਨਹੁ ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹਤ ਮੈ ਯਾ ਕਉ ॥੧॥
nihafal dharam taeh tum maanahu saach kahat mai yaa kau |1|

Know that such religion is useless to him. I speak the Truth for his sake. ||1||

ਜੈਸੇ ਪਾਹਨੁ ਜਲ ਮਹਿ ਰਾਖਿਓ ਭੇਦੈ ਨਾਹਿ ਤਿਹ ਪਾਨੀ ॥
jaise paahan jal meh raakhio bhedai naeh tih paanee |

It's like a stone, kept immersed in water; still, the water does not penetrate it.

ਤੈਸੇ ਹੀ ਤੁਮ ਤਾਹਿ ਪਛਾਨਹੁ ਭਗਤਿ ਹੀਨ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ॥੨॥
taise hee tum taeh pachhaanahu bhagat heen jo praanee |2|

So, understand it: that mortal being who lacks devotional worship is just like that. ||2||

ਕਲ ਮੈ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨਾਮ ਤੇ ਪਾਵਤ ਗੁਰੁ ਯਹ ਭੇਦੁ ਬਤਾਵੈ ॥
kal mai mukat naam te paavat gur yah bhed bataavai |

In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, liberation comes from the Naam. The Guru has revealed this secret.

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋਈ ਨਰੁ ਗਰੂਆ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵੈ ॥੩॥੩॥
kahu naanak soee nar garooaa jo prabh ke gun gaavai |3|3|

Says Nanak, he alone is a great man, who sings the Praises of God. ||3||3||

ਬਿਲਾਵਲੁ ਅਸਟਪਦੀਆ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਘਰੁ ੧੦ ॥
bilaaval asattapadeea mahalaa 1 ghar 10 |

Bilaaval, Ashtpadheeyaa, First Mehl, Tenth House:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

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

ਨਿਕਟਿ ਵਸੈ ਦੇਖੈ ਸਭੁ ਸੋਈ ॥
nikatt vasai dekhai sabh soee |

He dwells close at hand, and sees all,

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਵਿਰਲਾ ਬੂਝੈ ਕੋਈ ॥
guramukh viralaa boojhai koee |

but how rare is the Gurmukh who understands this.

ਵਿਣੁ ਭੈ ਪਇਐ ਭਗਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥
vin bhai peaai bhagat na hoee |

Without the Fear of God, there is no devotional worship.

ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੇ ਸਦਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਈ ॥੧॥
sabad rate sadaa sukh hoee |1|

Imbued with the Word of the Shabad, eternal peace is attained. ||1||

ਐਸਾ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਨਾਮੁ ॥
aaisaa giaan padaarath naam |

Such is the spiritual wisdom, the treasure of the Naam;

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਪਾਵਸਿ ਰਸਿ ਰਸਿ ਮਾਨੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
guramukh paavas ras ras maan |1| rahaau |

obtaining it, the Gurmukhs enjoy the subtle essence of this nectar. ||1||Pause||

ਗਿਆਨੁ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਕਥੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਈ ॥
giaan giaan kathai sabh koee |

Everyone talks about spiritual wisdom and spiritual knowledge.

ਕਥਿ ਕਥਿ ਬਾਦੁ ਕਰੇ ਦੁਖੁ ਹੋਈ ॥
kath kath baad kare dukh hoee |

Talking, talking, they argue, and suffer.

ਕਥਿ ਕਹਣੈ ਤੇ ਰਹੈ ਨ ਕੋਈ ॥
kath kahanai te rahai na koee |

No one can stop talking and discussing it.

ਬਿਨੁ ਰਸ ਰਾਤੇ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥੨॥

ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਸਭੁ ਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਹੋਈ ॥
giaan dhiaan sabh gur te hoee |

Spiritual wisdom and meditation all come from the Guru.

ਸਾਚੀ ਰਹਤ ਸਾਚਾ ਮਨਿ ਸੋਈ ॥
saachee rahat saachaa man soee |

Through the lifestyle of Truth, the True Lord comes to dwell in the mind.

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਕਥਨੀ ਹੈ ਪਰੁ ਰਹਤ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥
manamukh kathanee hai par rahat na hoee |

The self-willed manmukh talks about it, but does not practice it.

ਨਾਵਹੁ ਭੂਲੇ ਥਾਉ ਨ ਕੋਈ ॥੩॥
naavahu bhoole thaau na koee |3|

Forgetting the Name, he finds no place of rest. ||3||

ਮਨੁ ਮਾਇਆ ਬੰਧਿਓ ਸਰ ਜਾਲਿ ॥
man maaeaa bandhio sar jaal |

Maya has caught the mind in the trap of the whirlpool.

ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਬਿਆਪਿ ਰਹਿਓ ਬਿਖੁ ਨਾਲਿ ॥
ghatt ghatt biaap rahio bikh naal |

Each and every heart is trapped by this bait of poison and sin.

ਜੋ ਆਂਜੈ ਸੋ ਦੀਸੈ ਕਾਲਿ ॥
jo aanjai so deesai kaal |

See that whoever has come, is subject to death.

ਕਾਰਜੁ ਸੀਧੋ ਰਿਦੈ ਸਮੑਾਲਿ ॥੪॥
kaaraj seedho ridai samaal |4|

Your affairs shall be adjusted, if you contemplate the Lord in your heart. ||4||

ਸੋ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਜਿਨਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥
so giaanee jin sabad liv laaee |

He alone is a spiritual teacher, who lovingly focuses his consciousness on the Word of the Shabad.

ਮਨਮੁਖਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਪਤਿ ਗਵਾਈ ॥
manamukh haumai pat gavaaee |

The self-willed, egotistical manmukh loses his honor.

ਆਪੇ ਕਰਤੈ ਭਗਤਿ ਕਰਾਈ ॥
aape karatai bhagat karaaee |

The Creator Lord Himself inspires us to His devotional worship.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਆਪੇ ਦੇ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥੫॥
guramukh aape de vaddiaaee |5|

He Himself blesses the Gurmukh with glorious greatness. ||5||

ਰੈਣਿ ਅੰਧਾਰੀ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਜੋਤਿ ॥
rain andhaaree niramal jot |

The life-night is dark, while the Divine Light is immaculate.

ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਝੂਠੇ ਕੁਚਲ ਕਛੋਤਿ ॥
naam binaa jhootthe kuchal kachhot |

Those who lack the Naam, the Name of the Lord, are false, filthy and untouchable.

ਬੇਦੁ ਪੁਕਾਰੈ ਭਗਤਿ ਸਰੋਤਿ ॥
bed pukaarai bhagat sarot |

ਬੰਧਨ ਤੂਟੇ ਇਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਸਾਮੰ ॥੭॥
bandhan tootte ik naam vasaaman |7|

His bonds are broken, enshrining the Name of the One Lord. ||7||

ਮੰਨੇ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਚੀ ਪਤਿ ਪੂਜਾ ॥
mane naam sachee pat poojaa |

ਕਿਸੁ ਵੇਖਾ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋ ਦੂਜਾ ॥
kis vekhaa naahee ko doojaa |

Who should I see? There is none other than the Lord.

ਦੇਖਿ ਕਹਉ ਭਾਵੈ ਮਨਿ ਸੋਇ ॥
dekh khau bhaavai man soe |

I see, and I say, that He alone is pleasing to my mind.

ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਹੈ ਅਵਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਇ ॥੮॥੧॥
naanak kahai avar nahee koe |8|1|
