ਬਿਦਿਆ ਸੋਧੈ ਤਤੁ ਲਹੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥
bidiaa sodhai tat lahai raam naam liv laae |

Considering his knowledge, he finds the essence of reality, and lovingly focuses his attention on the Name of the Lord.

ਮਨਮੁਖੁ ਬਿਦਿਆ ਬਿਕ੍ਰਦਾ ਬਿਖੁ ਖਟੇ ਬਿਖੁ ਖਾਇ ॥
manamukh bidiaa bikradaa bikh khatte bikh khaae |

The self-willed manmukh sells his knowledge; he earns poison, and eats poison.

ਮੂਰਖੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਚੀਨਈ ਸੂਝ ਬੂਝ ਨਹ ਕਾਇ ॥੫੩॥
moorakh sabad na cheenee soojh boojh nah kaae |53|

The fool does not think of the Word of the Shabad. He has no understanding, no comprehension. ||53||

ਪਾਧਾ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਆਖੀਐ ਚਾਟੜਿਆ ਮਤਿ ਦੇਇ ॥
paadhaa guramukh aakheeai chaattarriaa mat dee |

That Pandit is called Gurmukh, who imparts understanding to his students.

ਨਾਮੁ ਸਮਾਲਹੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਸੰਗਰਹੁ ਲਾਹਾ ਜਗ ਮਹਿ ਲੇਇ ॥
naam samaalahu naam sangarahu laahaa jag meh lee |

Contemplate the Naam, the Name of the Lord; gather in the Naam, and earn the true profit in this world.

ਸਚੀ ਪਟੀ ਸਚੁ ਮਨਿ ਪੜੀਐ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁ ਸਾਰੁ ॥
sachee pattee sach man parreeai sabad su saar |

With the true notebook of the true mind, study the most sublime Word of the Shabad.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸੋ ਪੜਿਆ ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਬੀਨਾ ਜਿਸੁ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਗਲਿ ਹਾਰੁ ॥੫੪॥੧॥
naanak so parriaa so panddit beenaa jis raam naam gal haar |54|1|

O Nanak, he alone is learned, and he alone is a wise Pandit, who wears the necklace of the Lord's Name. ||54||1||

ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਸਿਧ ਗੋਸਟਿ ॥
raamakalee mahalaa 1 sidh gosatt |

Raamkalee, First Mehl, Sidh Gosht ~ Conversations With The Siddhas:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

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

ਸਿਧ ਸਭਾ ਕਰਿ ਆਸਣਿ ਬੈਠੇ ਸੰਤ ਸਭਾ ਜੈਕਾਰੋ ॥
sidh sabhaa kar aasan baitthe sant sabhaa jaikaaro |

The Siddhas formed an assembly; sitting in their Yogic postures, they shouted, "Salute this gathering of Saints."

ਤਿਸੁ ਆਗੈ ਰਹਰਾਸਿ ਹਮਾਰੀ ਸਾਚਾ ਅਪਰ ਅਪਾਰੋ ॥
tis aagai raharaas hamaaree saachaa apar apaaro |

I offer my salutation to the One who is true, infinite and incomparably beautiful.

ਮਸਤਕੁ ਕਾਟਿ ਧਰੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਆਗੈ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਆਗੈ ਦੇਉ ॥
masatak kaatt dharee tis aagai tan man aagai deo |

I cut off my head, and offer it to Him; I dedicate my body and mind to Him.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸੰਤੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਸਹਜ ਭਾਇ ਜਸੁ ਲੇਉ ॥੧॥
naanak sant milai sach paaeeai sahaj bhaae jas leo |1|

O Nanak, meeting with the Saints, Truth is obtained, and one is spontaneously blessed with distinction. ||1||

ਕਿਆ ਭਵੀਐ ਸਚਿ ਸੂਚਾ ਹੋਇ ॥
kiaa bhaveeai sach soochaa hoe |

What is the use of wandering around? Purity comes only through Truth.

ਸਾਚ ਸਬਦ ਬਿਨੁ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
saach sabad bin mukat na koe |1| rahaau |

Without the True Word of the Shabad, no one finds liberation. ||1||Pause||

ਕਵਨ ਤੁਮੇ ਕਿਆ ਨਾਉ ਤੁਮਾਰਾ ਕਉਨੁ ਮਾਰਗੁ ਕਉਨੁ ਸੁਆਓ ॥
kavan tume kiaa naau tumaaraa kaun maarag kaun suaao |

Who are you? What is your name? What is your way? What is your goal?

ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹਉ ਅਰਦਾਸਿ ਹਮਾਰੀ ਹਉ ਸੰਤ ਜਨਾ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਓ ॥
saach khau aradaas hamaaree hau sant janaa bal jaao |

We pray that you will answer us truthfully; we are a sacrifice to the humble Saints.

ਕਹ ਬੈਸਹੁ ਕਹ ਰਹੀਐ ਬਾਲੇ ਕਹ ਆਵਹੁ ਕਹ ਜਾਹੋ ॥
kah baisahu kah raheeai baale kah aavahu kah jaaho |

Where is your seat? Where do you live, boy? Where did you come from, and where are you going?

ਨਾਨਕੁ ਬੋਲੈ ਸੁਣਿ ਬੈਰਾਗੀ ਕਿਆ ਤੁਮਾਰਾ ਰਾਹੋ ॥੨॥
naanak bolai sun bairaagee kiaa tumaaraa raaho |2|

Tell us, Nanak - the detached Siddhas wait to hear your reply. What is your path?" ||2||

ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਬੈਸਿ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਰਹੀਐ ਚਾਲਹਿ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਭਾਏ ॥
ghatt ghatt bais nirantar raheeai chaaleh satigur bhaae |

He dwells deep within the nucleus of each and every heart. This is my seat and my home. I walk in harmony with the Will of the True Guru.

ਸਹਜੇ ਆਏ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਿਧਾਏ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਦਾ ਰਜਾਏ ॥
sahaje aae hukam sidhaae naanak sadaa rajaae |

I came from the Celestial Lord God; I go wherever He orders me to go. I am Nanak, forever under the Command of His Will.

ਆਸਣਿ ਬੈਸਣਿ ਥਿਰੁ ਨਾਰਾਇਣੁ ਐਸੀ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਪਾਏ ॥
aasan baisan thir naaraaein aaisee guramat paae |

I sit in the posture of the eternal, imperishable Lord. These are the Teachings I have received from the Guru.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਬੂਝੈ ਆਪੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਸਚੇ ਸਚਿ ਸਮਾਏ ॥੩॥
guramukh boojhai aap pachhaanai sache sach samaae |3|

As Gurmukh, I have come to understand and realize myself; I merge in the Truest of the True. ||3||

ਦੁਨੀਆ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਦੁਤਰੁ ਕਹੀਐ ਕਿਉ ਕਰਿ ਪਾਈਐ ਪਾਰੋ ॥
duneea saagar dutar kaheeai kiau kar paaeeai paaro |

"The world-ocean is treacherous and impassable; how can one cross over?"

ਚਰਪਟੁ ਬੋਲੈ ਅਉਧੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੇਹੁ ਸਚਾ ਬੀਚਾਰੋ ॥
charapatt bolai aaudhoo naanak dehu sachaa beechaaro |

Charpat the Yogi says, "O Nanak, think it over, and give us your true reply."

ਆਪੇ ਆਖੈ ਆਪੇ ਸਮਝੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਕਿਆ ਉਤਰੁ ਦੀਜੈ ॥
aape aakhai aape samajhai tis kiaa utar deejai |

What answer can I give to someone, who claims to understand himself?

ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹਹੁ ਤੁਮ ਪਾਰਗਰਾਮੀ ਤੁਝੁ ਕਿਆ ਬੈਸਣੁ ਦੀਜੈ ॥੪॥
saach kahahu tum paaragaraamee tujh kiaa baisan deejai |4|

I speak the Truth; if you have already crossed over, how can I argue with you? ||4||

ਜੈਸੇ ਜਲ ਮਹਿ ਕਮਲੁ ਨਿਰਾਲਮੁ ਮੁਰਗਾਈ ਨੈ ਸਾਣੇ ॥
jaise jal meh kamal niraalam muragaaee nai saane |

The lotus flower floats untouched upon the surface of the water, and the duck swims through the stream;

ਸੁਰਤਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਭਵ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਤਰੀਐ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਾਣੇ ॥
surat sabad bhav saagar tareeai naanak naam vakhaane |

with one's consciousness focused on the Word of the Shabad, one crosses over the terrifying world-ocean. O Nanak, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

ਰਹਹਿ ਇਕਾਂਤਿ ਏਕੋ ਮਨਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਆਸਾ ਮਾਹਿ ਨਿਰਾਸੋ ॥
raheh ikaant eko man vasiaa aasaa maeh niraaso |

One who lives alone, as a hermit, enshrining the One Lord in his mind, remaining unaffected by hope in the midst of hope,

ਅਗਮੁ ਅਗੋਚਰੁ ਦੇਖਿ ਦਿਖਾਏ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਤਾ ਕਾ ਦਾਸੋ ॥੫॥
agam agochar dekh dikhaae naanak taa kaa daaso |5|

sees and inspires others to see the inaccessible, unfathomable Lord. Nanak is his slave. ||5||

ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਅਰਦਾਸਿ ਹਮਾਰੀ ਪੂਛਉ ਸਾਚੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੋ ॥
sun suaamee aradaas hamaaree poochhau saach beechaaro |

"Listen, Lord, to our prayer. We seek your true opinion.

ਰੋਸੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੈ ਉਤਰੁ ਦੀਜੈ ਕਿਉ ਪਾਈਐ ਗੁਰ ਦੁਆਰੋ ॥
ros na keejai utar deejai kiau paaeeai gur duaaro |

Don't be angry with us - please tell us: How can we find the Guru's Door?"

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਚਲਤਉ ਸਚ ਘਰਿ ਬੈਸੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਧਾਰੋ ॥
eihu man chaltau sach ghar baisai naanak naam adhaaro |

This fickle mind sits in its true home, O Nanak, through the Support of the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

ਆਪੇ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਏ ਕਰਤਾ ਲਾਗੈ ਸਾਚਿ ਪਿਆਰੋ ॥੬॥
aape mel milaae karataa laagai saach piaaro |6|

The Creator Himself unites us in Union, and inspires us to love the Truth. ||6||

ਹਾਟੀ ਬਾਟੀ ਰਹਹਿ ਨਿਰਾਲੇ ਰੂਖਿ ਬਿਰਖਿ ਉਦਿਆਨੇ ॥
haattee baattee raheh niraale rookh birakh udiaane |

"Away from stores and highways, we live in the woods, among plants and trees.

ਕੰਦ ਮੂਲੁ ਅਹਾਰੋ ਖਾਈਐ ਅਉਧੂ ਬੋਲੈ ਗਿਆਨੇ ॥
kand mool ahaaro khaaeeai aaudhoo bolai giaane |

For food, we take fruits and roots. This is the spiritual wisdom spoken by the renunciates.
