Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Page - 934


ਜਿਨਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦੀਆ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੇਵਸਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਲਿਹਾਰੈ ਜਾਉ ॥
jin naam deea tis sevasaa tis balihaarai jaau |

I serve the One who gave me the Naam; I am a sacrifice to Him.

ਜੋ ਉਸਾਰੇ ਸੋ ਢਾਹਸੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥
jo usaare so dtaahasee tis bin avar na koe |

He who builds, also demolishes; there is no other than Him.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੰਮੑਲਾ ਤਾ ਤਨਿ ਦੂਖੁ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥੩੧॥
guraparasaadee tis samalaa taa tan dookh na hoe |31|

By Guru's Grace, I contemplate Him, and then my body does not suffer in pain. ||31||

ਣਾ ਕੋ ਮੇਰਾ ਕਿਸੁ ਗਹੀ ਣਾ ਕੋ ਹੋਆ ਨ ਹੋਗੁ ॥
naa ko meraa kis gahee naa ko hoaa na hog |

No one is mine - whose gown should I grasp and hold? No one ever was, and no one shall ever be mine.

ਆਵਣਿ ਜਾਣਿ ਵਿਗੁਚੀਐ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਵਿਆਪੈ ਰੋਗੁ ॥
aavan jaan vigucheeai dubidhaa viaapai rog |

Coming and going, one is ruined, afflicted with the disease of dual-mindedness.

ਣਾਮ ਵਿਹੂਣੇ ਆਦਮੀ ਕਲਰ ਕੰਧ ਗਿਰੰਤਿ ॥
naam vihoone aadamee kalar kandh girant |

Those beings who lack the Naam, the Name of the Lord, collapse like pillars of salt.

ਵਿਣੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਕਿਉ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਜਾਇ ਰਸਾਤਲਿ ਅੰਤਿ ॥
vin naavai kiau chhootteeai jaae rasaatal ant |

Without the Name, how can they find release? They fall into hell in the end.

ਗਣਤ ਗਣਾਵੈ ਅਖਰੀ ਅਗਣਤੁ ਸਾਚਾ ਸੋਇ ॥
ganat ganaavai akharee aganat saachaa soe |

Using a limited number of words, we describe the unlimited True Lord.

ਅਗਿਆਨੀ ਮਤਿਹੀਣੁ ਹੈ ਗੁਰ ਬਿਨੁ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥
agiaanee matiheen hai gur bin giaan na hoe |

The ignorant lack understanding. Without the Guru, there is no spiritual wisdom.

ਤੂਟੀ ਤੰਤੁ ਰਬਾਬ ਕੀ ਵਾਜੈ ਨਹੀ ਵਿਜੋਗਿ ॥
toottee tant rabaab kee vaajai nahee vijog |

The separated soul is like the broken string of a guitar, which does not vibrate its sound.

ਵਿਛੁੜਿਆ ਮੇਲੈ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਕਰਿ ਸੰਜੋਗ ॥੩੨॥
vichhurriaa melai prabhoo naanak kar sanjog |32|

God unites the separated souls with Himself, awakening their destiny. ||32||

ਤਰਵਰੁ ਕਾਇਆ ਪੰਖਿ ਮਨੁ ਤਰਵਰਿ ਪੰਖੀ ਪੰਚ ॥
taravar kaaeaa pankh man taravar pankhee panch |

The body is the tree, and the mind is the bird; the birds in the tree are the five senses.

ਤਤੁ ਚੁਗਹਿ ਮਿਲਿ ਏਕਸੇ ਤਿਨ ਕਉ ਫਾਸ ਨ ਰੰਚ ॥
tat chugeh mil ekase tin kau faas na ranch |

They peck at the essence of reality, and merge with the One Lord. They are never trapped at all.

ਉਡਹਿ ਤ ਬੇਗੁਲ ਬੇਗੁਲੇ ਤਾਕਹਿ ਚੋਗ ਘਣੀ ॥
auddeh ta begul begule taakeh chog ghanee |

But the others fly away in a hurry, when they see the food.

ਪੰਖ ਤੁਟੇ ਫਾਹੀ ਪੜੀ ਅਵਗੁਣਿ ਭੀੜ ਬਣੀ ॥
pankh tutte faahee parree avagun bheerr banee |

Their feathers are clipped, and they are caught in the noose; through their mistakes, they are caught in disaster.

ਬਿਨੁ ਸਾਚੇ ਕਿਉ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਕਰਮਿ ਮਣੀ ॥
bin saache kiau chhootteeai har gun karam manee |

Without the True Lord, how can anyone find release? The jewel of the Lord's Glorious Praises comes by the karma of good actions.

ਆਪਿ ਛਡਾਏ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਵਡਾ ਆਪਿ ਧਣੀ ॥
aap chhaddaae chhootteeai vaddaa aap dhanee |

When He Himself releases them, only then are they released. He Himself is the Great Master.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਆਪਿ ਕਰੇਇ ॥
guraparasaadee chhootteeai kirapaa aap karee |

By Guru's Grace, they are released, when He Himself grants His Grace.

ਅਪਣੈ ਹਾਥਿ ਵਡਾਈਆ ਜੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਤੈ ਦੇਇ ॥੩੩॥
apanai haath vaddaaeea jai bhaavai tai dee |33|

Glorious greatness rests in His Hands. He blesses those with whom He is pleased. ||33||

ਥਰ ਥਰ ਕੰਪੈ ਜੀਅੜਾ ਥਾਨ ਵਿਹੂਣਾ ਹੋਇ ॥
thar thar kanpai jeearraa thaan vihoonaa hoe |

The soul trembles and shakes, when it loses its mooring and support.

ਥਾਨਿ ਮਾਨਿ ਸਚੁ ਏਕੁ ਹੈ ਕਾਜੁ ਨ ਫੀਟੈ ਕੋਇ ॥
thaan maan sach ek hai kaaj na feettai koe |

Only the support of the True Lord brings honor and glory. Through it, one's works are never in vain.

ਥਿਰੁ ਨਾਰਾਇਣੁ ਥਿਰੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਥਿਰੁ ਸਾਚਾ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ॥
thir naaraaein thir guroo thir saachaa beechaar |

The Lord is eternal and forever stable; the Guru is stable, and contemplation upon the True Lord is stable.

ਸੁਰਿ ਨਰ ਨਾਥਹ ਨਾਥੁ ਤੂ ਨਿਧਾਰਾ ਆਧਾਰੁ ॥
sur nar naathah naath too nidhaaraa aadhaar |

O Lord and Master of angels, men and Yogic masters, You are the support of the unsupported.

ਸਰਬੇ ਥਾਨ ਥਨੰਤਰੀ ਤੂ ਦਾਤਾ ਦਾਤਾਰੁ ॥
sarabe thaan thanantaree too daataa daataar |

In all places and interspaces, You are the Giver, the Great Giver.

ਜਹ ਦੇਖਾ ਤਹ ਏਕੁ ਤੂ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਪਾਰਾਵਾਰੁ ॥
jah dekhaa tah ek too ant na paaraavaar |

Wherever I look, there I see You, Lord; You have no end or limitation.

ਥਾਨ ਥਨੰਤਰਿ ਰਵਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੀ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ ॥
thaan thanantar rav rahiaa gurasabadee veechaar |

You are pervading and permeating the places and interspaces; reflecting upon the Word of the Guru's Shabad, You are found.

ਅਣਮੰਗਿਆ ਦਾਨੁ ਦੇਵਸੀ ਵਡਾ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰੁ ॥੩੪॥
anamangiaa daan devasee vaddaa agam apaar |34|

You give gifts even when they are not asked for; You are great, inaccessible and infinite. ||34||

ਦਇਆ ਦਾਨੁ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਤੂ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖਣਹਾਰੁ ॥
deaa daan deaal too kar kar dekhanahaar |

O Merciful Lord, You are the embodiment of mercy; creating the Creation, You behold it.

ਦਇਆ ਕਰਹਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਮੇਲਿ ਲੈਹਿ ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਢਾਹਿ ਉਸਾਰਿ ॥
deaa kareh prabh mel laihi khin meh dtaeh usaar |

Please shower Your Mercy upon me, O God, and unite me with Yourself. In an instant, You destroy and rebuild.

ਦਾਨਾ ਤੂ ਬੀਨਾ ਤੁਹੀ ਦਾਨਾ ਕੈ ਸਿਰਿ ਦਾਨੁ ॥
daanaa too beenaa tuhee daanaa kai sir daan |

You are all-wise and all-seeing; You are the Greatest Giver of all givers.

ਦਾਲਦ ਭੰਜਨ ਦੁਖ ਦਲਣ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ॥੩੫॥
daalad bhanjan dukh dalan guramukh giaan dhiaan |35|

He is the Eradicator of poverty, and the Destroyer of pain; the Gurmukh realizes spiritual wisdom and meditation. ||35||

ਧਨਿ ਗਇਐ ਬਹਿ ਝੂਰੀਐ ਧਨ ਮਹਿ ਚੀਤੁ ਗਵਾਰ ॥
dhan geaai beh jhooreeai dhan meh cheet gavaar |

Losing his wealth, he cries out in anguish; the fool's consciousness is engrossed in wealth.

ਧਨੁ ਵਿਰਲੀ ਸਚੁ ਸੰਚਿਆ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥
dhan viralee sach sanchiaa niramal naam piaar |

How rare are those who gather the wealth of Truth, and love the Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord.

ਧਨੁ ਗਇਆ ਤਾ ਜਾਣ ਦੇਹਿ ਜੇ ਰਾਚਹਿ ਰੰਗਿ ਏਕ ॥
dhan geaa taa jaan dehi je raacheh rang ek |

If by losing your wealth, you may become absorbed in the Love of the One Lord, then just let it go.

ਮਨੁ ਦੀਜੈ ਸਿਰੁ ਸਉਪੀਐ ਭੀ ਕਰਤੇ ਕੀ ਟੇਕ ॥
man deejai sir saupeeai bhee karate kee ttek |

Dedicate your mind, and surrender your head; seek only the Support of the Creator Lord.

ਧੰਧਾ ਧਾਵਤ ਰਹਿ ਗਏ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਸਬਦੁ ਅਨੰਦੁ ॥
dhandhaa dhaavat reh ge man meh sabad anand |

Worldly affairs and wanderings cease, when the mind is filled with the bliss of the Shabad.

ਦੁਰਜਨ ਤੇ ਸਾਜਨ ਭਏ ਭੇਟੇ ਗੁਰ ਗੋਵਿੰਦ ॥
durajan te saajan bhe bhette gur govind |

Even one's enemies become friends, meeting with the Guru, the Lord of the Universe.

ਬਨੁ ਬਨੁ ਫਿਰਤੀ ਢੂਢਤੀ ਬਸਤੁ ਰਹੀ ਘਰਿ ਬਾਰਿ ॥
ban ban firatee dtoodtatee basat rahee ghar baar |

Wandering from forest to forest searching, you will find that those things are within the home of your own heart.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਮੇਲੀ ਮਿਲਿ ਰਹੀ ਜਨਮ ਮਰਣ ਦੁਖੁ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ॥੩੬॥
satigur melee mil rahee janam maran dukh nivaar |36|

United by the True Guru, you shall remain united, and the pains of birth and death will be ended. ||36||

ਨਾਨਾ ਕਰਤ ਨ ਛੂਟੀਐ ਵਿਣੁ ਗੁਣ ਜਮ ਪੁਰਿ ਜਾਹਿ ॥
naanaa karat na chhootteeai vin gun jam pur jaeh |

Through various rituals, one does not find release. Without virtue, one is sent to the City of Death.

ਨਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਏਹੁ ਨ ਓਹੁ ਹੈ ਅਵਗੁਣਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਪਛੁਤਾਹਿ ॥
naa tis ehu na ohu hai avagun fir pachhutaeh |

One will not have this world or the next; committing sinful mistakes, one comes to regret and repent in the end.
