ਪਵਨ ਅਰੰਭੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਮਤਿ ਵੇਲਾ ॥
pavan aranbh satigur mat velaa |

From the air came the beginning. This is the age of the True Guru's Teachings.

ਸਬਦੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਧੁਨਿ ਚੇਲਾ ॥
sabad guroo surat dhun chelaa |

The Shabad is the Guru, upon whom I lovingly focus my consciousness; I am the chaylaa, the disciple.

ਅਕਥ ਕਥਾ ਲੇ ਰਹਉ ਨਿਰਾਲਾ ॥

Speaking the Unspoken Speech, I remain unattached.

ਨਾਨਕ ਜੁਗਿ ਜੁਗਿ ਗੁਰ ਗੋਪਾਲਾ ॥

hivai kaa ghar mandar agan piraahan |

How can one live in the palace, the home of snow, wearing robes of fire?

ਕਵਨ ਗੁਫਾ ਜਿਤੁ ਰਹੈ ਅਵਾਹਨੁ ॥
kavan gufaa jit rahai avaahan |

Where is that cave, within which one may remain unshaken?

ਇਤ ਉਤ ਕਿਸ ਕਉ ਜਾਣਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥
eit ut kis kau jaan samaavai |

Who should we know to be pervading here and there?

ਕਵਨ ਧਿਆਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਮਨਹਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੪੫॥
kavan dhiaan man maneh samaavai |45|

What is that meditation, which leads the mind to be absorbed in itself?" ||45||

ਹਉ ਹਉ ਮੈ ਮੈ ਵਿਚਹੁ ਖੋਵੈ ॥
hau hau mai mai vichahu khovai |

Eradicating egotism and individualism from within,

ਦੂਜਾ ਮੇਟੈ ਏਕੋ ਹੋਵੈ ॥
doojaa mettai eko hovai |

and erasing duality, the mortal becomes one with God.

ਜਗੁ ਕਰੜਾ ਮਨਮੁਖੁ ਗਾਵਾਰੁ ॥
jag kararraa manamukh gaavaar |

The world is difficult for the foolish, self-willed manmukh;

ਸਬਦੁ ਕਮਾਈਐ ਖਾਈਐ ਸਾਰੁ ॥
sabad kamaaeeai khaaeeai saar |

practicing the Shabad, one chews iron.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਏਕੋ ਜਾਣੈ ॥
antar baahar eko jaanai |

Know the One Lord, inside and out.

ਨਾਨਕ ਅਗਨਿ ਮਰੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਭਾਣੈ ॥੪੬॥
naanak agan marai satigur kai bhaanai |46|

O Nanak, the fire is quenched, through the Pleasure of the True Guru's Will. ||46||

ਸਚ ਭੈ ਰਾਤਾ ਗਰਬੁ ਨਿਵਾਰੈ ॥
sach bhai raataa garab nivaarai |

Imbued with the True Fear of God, pride is taken away;

ਏਕੋ ਜਾਤਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਵੀਚਾਰੈ ॥
eko jaataa sabad veechaarai |

realize that He is One, and contemplate the Shabad.

ਸਬਦੁ ਵਸੈ ਸਚੁ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਹੀਆ ॥
sabad vasai sach antar heea |

With the True Shabad abiding deep within the heart,

ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਸੀਤਲੁ ਰੰਗਿ ਰੰਗੀਆ ॥
tan man seetal rang rangeea |

the body and mind are cooled and soothed, and colored with the Lord's Love.

ਕਾਮੁ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਬਿਖੁ ਅਗਨਿ ਨਿਵਾਰੇ ॥
kaam krodh bikh agan nivaare |

The fire of sexual desire, anger and corruption is quenched.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਦਰੀ ਨਦਰਿ ਪਿਆਰੇ ॥੪੭॥

O Nanak, the Beloved bestows His Glance of Grace. ||47||

ਕਵਨ ਮੁਖਿ ਚੰਦੁ ਹਿਵੈ ਘਰੁ ਛਾਇਆ ॥
kavan mukh chand hivai ghar chhaaeaa |

"The moon of the mind is cool and dark; how is it enlightened?

ਕਵਨ ਮੁਖਿ ਸੂਰਜੁ ਤਪੈ ਤਪਾਇਆ ॥
kavan mukh sooraj tapai tapaaeaa |

How does the sun blaze so brilliantly?

ਕਵਨ ਮੁਖਿ ਕਾਲੁ ਜੋਹਤ ਨਿਤ ਰਹੈ ॥
kavan mukh kaal johat nit rahai |

How can the constant watchful gaze of Death be turned away?

ਕਵਨ ਬੁਧਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਪਤਿ ਰਹੈ ॥
kavan budh guramukh pat rahai |

By what understanding is the honor of the Gurmukh preserved?

ਕਵਨੁ ਜੋਧੁ ਜੋ ਕਾਲੁ ਸੰਘਾਰੈ ॥
kavan jodh jo kaal sanghaarai |

Who is the warrior, who conquers Death?

ਬੋਲੈ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਬੀਚਾਰੈ ॥੪੮॥
bolai baanee naanak beechaarai |48|

Give us your thoughtful reply, O Nanak." ||48||

ਸਬਦੁ ਭਾਖਤ ਸਸਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥
sabad bhaakhat sas jot apaaraa |

Giving voice to the Shabad, the moon of the mind is illuminated with infinity.

ਸਸਿ ਘਰਿ ਸੂਰੁ ਵਸੈ ਮਿਟੈ ਅੰਧਿਆਰਾ ॥
sas ghar soor vasai mittai andhiaaraa |

When the sun dwells in the house of the moon, the darkness is dispelled.

ਸੁਖੁ ਦੁਖੁ ਸਮ ਕਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਧਾਰਾ ॥
sukh dukh sam kar naam adhaaraa |

Pleasure and pain are just the same, when one takes the Support of the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

ਆਪੇ ਪਾਰਿ ਉਤਾਰਣਹਾਰਾ ॥
aape paar utaaranahaaraa |

He Himself saves, and carries us across.

ਗੁਰ ਪਰਚੈ ਮਨੁ ਸਾਚਿ ਸਮਾਇ ॥
gur parachai man saach samaae |

With faith in the Guru, the mind merges in Truth,

ਪ੍ਰਣਵਤਿ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਖਾਇ ॥੪੯॥
pranavat naanak kaal na khaae |49|

and then, prays Nanak, one is not consumed by Death. ||49||

ਨਾਮ ਤਤੁ ਸਭ ਹੀ ਸਿਰਿ ਜਾਪੈ ॥
naam tat sabh hee sir jaapai |

The essence of the Naam, the Name of the Lord, is known to be the most exalted and excellent of all.

ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਦੁਖੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਸੰਤਾਪੈ ॥
bin naavai dukh kaal santaapai |

Without the Name, one is afflicted by pain and death.

ਤਤੋ ਤਤੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨੈ ॥
tato tat milai man maanai |

When one's essence merges into the essence, the mind is satisfied and fulfilled.

ਦੂਜਾ ਜਾਇ ਇਕਤੁ ਘਰਿ ਆਨੈ ॥
doojaa jaae ikat ghar aanai |

Duality is gone, and one enters into the home of the One Lord.

ਬੋਲੈ ਪਵਨਾ ਗਗਨੁ ਗਰਜੈ ॥
bolai pavanaa gagan garajai |

The breath blows across the sky of the Tenth Gate and vibrates.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਿਹਚਲੁ ਮਿਲਣੁ ਸਹਜੈ ॥੫੦॥
naanak nihachal milan sahajai |50|

O Nanak, the mortal then intuitively meets the eternal, unchanging Lord. ||50||

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਸੁੰਨੰ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਸੁੰਨੰ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਸੁੰਨ ਮਸੁੰਨੰ ॥
antar sunan baahar sunan tribhavan sun masunan |

The absolute Lord is deep within; the absolute Lord is outside us as well. The absolute Lord totally fills the three worlds.

ਚਉਥੇ ਸੁੰਨੈ ਜੋ ਨਰੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਤਾ ਕਉ ਪਾਪੁ ਨ ਪੁੰਨੰ ॥
chauthe sunai jo nar jaanai taa kau paap na punan |

One who knows the Lord in the fourth state, is not subject to virtue or vice.

ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਸੁੰਨ ਕਾ ਜਾਣੈ ਭੇਉ ॥
ghatt ghatt sun kaa jaanai bheo |

One who knows the mystery of God the Absolute, who pervades each and every heart,

ਆਦਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨ ਦੇਉ ॥

naanak soee purakh bidhaataa |51|

O Nanak, is himself the Primal Lord, the Architect of Destiny. ||51||

ਸੁੰਨੋ ਸੁੰਨੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਈ ॥

"Everyone speaks of the Absolute Lord, the unmanifest void.

ਅਨਹਤ ਸੁੰਨੁ ਕਹਾ ਤੇ ਹੋਈ ॥
anahat sun kahaa te hoee |

How can one find this absolute void?

ਅਨਹਤ ਸੁੰਨਿ ਰਤੇ ਸੇ ਕੈਸੇ ॥
anahat sun rate se kaise |

Who are they, who are attuned to this absolute void?"

ਜਿਸ ਤੇ ਉਪਜੇ ਤਿਸ ਹੀ ਜੈਸੇ ॥
jis te upaje tis hee jaise |

They are like the Lord, from whom they originated.

ਓਇ ਜਨਮਿ ਨ ਮਰਹਿ ਨ ਆਵਹਿ ਜਾਹਿ ॥
oe janam na mareh na aaveh jaeh |

They are not born, they do not die; they do not come and go.

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਨੁ ਸਮਝਾਹਿ ॥੫੨॥
naanak guramukh man samajhaeh |52|

O Nanak, the Gurmukhs instruct their minds. ||52||

ਨਉ ਸਰ ਸੁਭਰ ਦਸਵੈ ਪੂਰੇ ॥
nau sar subhar dasavai poore |

By practicing control over the nine gates, one attains perfect control over the Tenth Gate.

ਤਹ ਅਨਹਤ ਸੁੰਨ ਵਜਾਵਹਿ ਤੂਰੇ ॥
tah anahat sun vajaaveh toore |

There, the unstruck sound current of the absolute Lord vibrates and resounds.

ਸਾਚੈ ਰਾਚੇ ਦੇਖਿ ਹਜੂਰੇ ॥
saachai raache dekh hajoore |

Behold the True Lord ever-present, and merge with Him.
