ਮੇਰੀ ਮੇਰੀ ਕਰਿ ਮੁਏ ਵਿਣੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਦੁਖੁ ਭਾਲਿ ॥
meree meree kar mue vin naavai dukh bhaal |

Crying out, "Mine, mine!", they have died, but without the Name, they find only pain.

ਗੜ ਮੰਦਰ ਮਹਲਾ ਕਹਾ ਜਿਉ ਬਾਜੀ ਦੀਬਾਣੁ ॥
garr mandar mahalaa kahaa jiau baajee deebaan |

So where are their forts, mansions, palaces and courts? They are like a short story.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਚੇ ਨਾਮ ਵਿਣੁ ਝੂਠਾ ਆਵਣ ਜਾਣੁ ॥
naanak sache naam vin jhootthaa aavan jaan |

O Nanak, without the True Name, the false just come and go.

ਆਪੇ ਚਤੁਰੁ ਸਰੂਪੁ ਹੈ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੁ ਸੁਜਾਣੁ ॥੪੨॥
aape chatur saroop hai aape jaan sujaan |42|

He Himself is clever and so very beautiful; He Himself is wise and all-knowing. ||42||

ਜੋ ਆਵਹਿ ਸੇ ਜਾਹਿ ਫੁਨਿ ਆਇ ਗਏ ਪਛੁਤਾਹਿ ॥
jo aaveh se jaeh fun aae ge pachhutaeh |

Those who come, must go in the end; they come and go, regretting and repenting.

ਲਖ ਚਉਰਾਸੀਹ ਮੇਦਨੀ ਘਟੈ ਨ ਵਧੈ ਉਤਾਹਿ ॥
lakh chauraaseeh medanee ghattai na vadhai utaeh |

They will pass through 8.4 millions species; this number does not decrease or rise.

ਸੇ ਜਨ ਉਬਰੇ ਜਿਨ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਇਆ ॥
se jan ubare jin har bhaaeaa |

They alone are saved, who love the Lord.

ਧੰਧਾ ਮੁਆ ਵਿਗੂਤੀ ਮਾਇਆ ॥
dhandhaa muaa vigootee maaeaa |

Their worldly entanglements are ended, and Maya is conquered.

ਜੋ ਦੀਸੈ ਸੋ ਚਾਲਸੀ ਕਿਸ ਕਉ ਮੀਤੁ ਕਰੇਉ ॥
jo deesai so chaalasee kis kau meet kareo |

Whoever is seen, shall depart; who should I make my friend?

ਜੀਉ ਸਮਪਉ ਆਪਣਾ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਆਗੈ ਦੇਉ ॥
jeeo sampau aapanaa tan man aagai deo |

I dedicate my soul, and place my body and mind in offering before Him.

ਅਸਥਿਰੁ ਕਰਤਾ ਤੂ ਧਣੀ ਤਿਸ ਹੀ ਕੀ ਮੈ ਓਟ ॥
asathir karataa too dhanee tis hee kee mai ott |

You are eternally stable, O Creator, Lord and Master; I lean on Your Support.

ਗੁਣ ਕੀ ਮਾਰੀ ਹਉ ਮੁਈ ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੀ ਮਨਿ ਚੋਟ ॥੪੩॥
gun kee maaree hau muee sabad ratee man chott |43|

Conquered by virtue, egotism is killed; imbued with the Word of the Shabad, the mind rejects the world. ||43||

ਰਾਣਾ ਰਾਉ ਨ ਕੋ ਰਹੈ ਰੰਗੁ ਨ ਤੁੰਗੁ ਫਕੀਰੁ ॥
raanaa raau na ko rahai rang na tung fakeer |

Neither the kings nor the nobles will remain; neither the rich nor the poor will remain.

ਵਾਰੀ ਆਪੋ ਆਪਣੀ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਬੰਧੈ ਧੀਰ ॥
vaaree aapo aapanee koe na bandhai dheer |

When one's turn comes, no one can stay here.

ਰਾਹੁ ਬੁਰਾ ਭੀਹਾਵਲਾ ਸਰ ਡੂਗਰ ਅਸਗਾਹ ॥
raahu buraa bheehaavalaa sar ddoogar asagaah |

The path is difficult and treacherous; the pools and mountains are impassable.

ਮੈ ਤਨਿ ਅਵਗਣ ਝੁਰਿ ਮੁਈ ਵਿਣੁ ਗੁਣ ਕਿਉ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਹ ॥
mai tan avagan jhur muee vin gun kiau ghar jaah |

My body is filled with faults; I am dying of grief. Without virtue, how can I enter my home?

ਗੁਣੀਆ ਗੁਣ ਲੇ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਮਿਲੇ ਕਿਉ ਤਿਨ ਮਿਲਉ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥
guneea gun le prabh mile kiau tin milau piaar |

The virtuous take virtue, and meet God; how can I meet them with love?

ਤਿਨ ਹੀ ਜੈਸੀ ਥੀ ਰਹਾਂ ਜਪਿ ਜਪਿ ਰਿਦੈ ਮੁਰਾਰਿ ॥
tin hee jaisee thee rahaan jap jap ridai muraar |

If ony I could be like them, chanting and meditating within my heart on the Lord.

ਅਵਗੁਣੀ ਭਰਪੂਰ ਹੈ ਗੁਣ ਭੀ ਵਸਹਿ ਨਾਲਿ ॥
avagunee bharapoor hai gun bhee vaseh naal |

He is overflowing with faults and demerits, but virtue dwells within him as well.

ਵਿਣੁ ਸਤਗੁਰ ਗੁਣ ਨ ਜਾਪਨੀ ਜਿਚਰੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਨ ਕਰੇ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ॥੪੪॥
vin satagur gun na jaapanee jichar sabad na kare beechaar |44|

Without the True Guru, he does not see God's Virtues; he does not chant the Glorious Virtues of God. ||44||

ਲਸਕਰੀਆ ਘਰ ਸੰਮਲੇ ਆਏ ਵਜਹੁ ਲਿਖਾਇ ॥
lasakareea ghar samale aae vajahu likhaae |

God's soldiers take care of their homes; their pay is pre-ordained, before they come into the world.

They renounce greed, avarice and evil, and forget them from their minds.

ਗੜਿ ਦੋਹੀ ਪਾਤਿਸਾਹ ਕੀ ਕਦੇ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਹਾਰਿ ॥
garr dohee paatisaah kee kade na aavai haar |

In the fortress of the body, they announce the victory of their Supreme King; they are never ever vanquished.

ਚਾਕਰੁ ਕਹੀਐ ਖਸਮ ਕਾ ਸਉਹੇ ਉਤਰ ਦੇਇ ॥
chaakar kaheeai khasam kaa sauhe utar dee |

One who calls himself a servant of his Lord and Master, and yet speaks defiantly to Him,

ਵਜਹੁ ਗਵਾਏ ਆਪਣਾ ਤਖਤਿ ਨ ਬੈਸਹਿ ਸੇਇ ॥
vajahu gavaae aapanaa takhat na baiseh see |

shall forfeit his pay, and not be seated upon the throne.

ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਹਥਿ ਵਡਿਆਈਆ ਜੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਤੈ ਦੇਇ ॥
preetam hath vaddiaaeea jai bhaavai tai dee |
