Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Page - 945


ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਰਸੁ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਅਉਧੂ ਹਉਮੈ ਪਿਆਸ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥
bin sabadai ras na aavai aaudhoo haumai piaas na jaaee |

Without the Shabad, the essence does not come, O hermit, and the thirst of egotism does not depart.

ਸਬਦਿ ਰਤੇ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਰਸੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਸਾਚੇ ਰਹੇ ਅਘਾਈ ॥
sabad rate amrit ras paaeaa saache rahe aghaaee |

Imbued with the Shabad, one finds the ambrosial essence, and remains fulfilled with the True Name.

ਕਵਨ ਬੁਧਿ ਜਿਤੁ ਅਸਥਿਰੁ ਰਹੀਐ ਕਿਤੁ ਭੋਜਨਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਾਸੈ ॥
kavan budh jit asathir raheeai kit bhojan tripataasai |

"What is that wisdom, by which one remains steady and stable? What food brings satisfaction?"

ਨਾਨਕ ਦੁਖੁ ਸੁਖੁ ਸਮ ਕਰਿ ਜਾਪੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਕਾਲੁ ਨ ਗ੍ਰਾਸੈ ॥੬੧॥
naanak dukh sukh sam kar jaapai satigur te kaal na graasai |61|

O Nanak, when one looks upon pain and pleasure alike, through the True Guru, then he is not consumed by Death. ||61||

ਰੰਗਿ ਨ ਰਾਤਾ ਰਸਿ ਨਹੀ ਮਾਤਾ ॥
rang na raataa ras nahee maataa |

If one is not imbued with the Lord's Love, nor intoxicated with His subtle essence,

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰਸਬਦੈ ਜਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਤਾਤਾ ॥
bin gurasabadai jal bal taataa |

without the Word of the Guru's Shabad, he is frustrated, and consumed by his own inner fire.

ਬਿੰਦੁ ਨ ਰਾਖਿਆ ਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਭਾਖਿਆ ॥
bind na raakhiaa sabad na bhaakhiaa |

He does not preserve his semen and seed, and does not chant the Shabad.

ਪਵਨੁ ਨ ਸਾਧਿਆ ਸਚੁ ਨ ਅਰਾਧਿਆ ॥
pavan na saadhiaa sach na araadhiaa |

He does not control his breath; he does not worship and adore the True Lord.

ਅਕਥ ਕਥਾ ਲੇ ਸਮ ਕਰਿ ਰਹੈ ॥
akath kathaa le sam kar rahai |

But one who speaks the Unspoken Speech, and remains balanced,

ਤਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮ ਕਉ ਲਹੈ ॥੬੨॥
tau naanak aatam raam kau lahai |62|

O Nanak, attains the Lord, the Supreme Soul. ||62||

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਰੰਗੇ ਰਾਤਾ ॥
guraparasaadee range raataa |

By Guru's Grace, one is attuned to the Lord's Love.

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਪੀਆ ਸਾਚੇ ਮਾਤਾ ॥
amrit peea saache maataa |

Drinking in the Ambrosial Nectar, he is intoxicated with the Truth.

ਗੁਰ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ਅਗਨਿ ਨਿਵਾਰੀ ॥
gur veechaaree agan nivaaree |

Contemplating the Guru, the fire within is put out.

ਅਪਿਉ ਪੀਓ ਆਤਮ ਸੁਖੁ ਧਾਰੀ ॥
apiau peeo aatam sukh dhaaree |

Drinking in the Ambrosial Nectar, the soul settles in peace.

ਸਚੁ ਅਰਾਧਿਆ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਤਰੁ ਤਾਰੀ ॥
sach araadhiaa guramukh tar taaree |

Worshipping the True Lord in adoration, the Gurmukh crosses over the river of life.

ਨਾਨਕ ਬੂਝੈ ਕੋ ਵੀਚਾਰੀ ॥੬੩॥
naanak boojhai ko veechaaree |63|

O Nanak, after deep contemplation, this is understood. ||63||

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਮੈਗਲੁ ਕਹਾ ਬਸੀਅਲੇ ਕਹਾ ਬਸੈ ਇਹੁ ਪਵਨਾ ॥
eihu man maigal kahaa baseeale kahaa basai ihu pavanaa |

"Where does this mind-elephant live? Where does the breath reside?

ਕਹਾ ਬਸੈ ਸੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਅਉਧੂ ਤਾ ਕਉ ਚੂਕੈ ਮਨ ਕਾ ਭਵਨਾ ॥
kahaa basai su sabad aaudhoo taa kau chookai man kaa bhavanaa |

Where should the Shabad reside, so that the wanderings of the mind may cease?"

ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇ ਤਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਮੇਲੇ ਤਾ ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਵਾਸਾ ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਪਾਏ ॥
nadar kare taa satigur mele taa nij ghar vaasaa ihu man paae |

When the Lord blesses one with His Glance of Grace, he leads him to the True Guru. Then, this mind dwells in its own home within.

ਆਪੈ ਆਪੁ ਖਾਇ ਤਾ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਧਾਵਤੁ ਵਰਜਿ ਰਹਾਏ ॥
aapai aap khaae taa niramal hovai dhaavat varaj rahaae |

When the individual consumes his egotism, he becomes immaculate, and his wandering mind is restrained.

ਕਿਉ ਮੂਲੁ ਪਛਾਣੈ ਆਤਮੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਕਿਉ ਸਸਿ ਘਰਿ ਸੂਰੁ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥
kiau mool pachhaanai aatam jaanai kiau sas ghar soor samaavai |

"How can the root, the source of all be realized? How can the soul know itself? How can the sun enter into the house of the moon?"

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਵਿਚਹੁ ਖੋਵੈ ਤਉ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੬੪॥
guramukh haumai vichahu khovai tau naanak sahaj samaavai |64|

The Gurmukh eliminates egotism from within; then, O Nanak, the sun naturally enters into the home of the moon. ||64||

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਨਿਹਚਲੁ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਵਸੀਅਲੇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮੂਲੁ ਪਛਾਣਿ ਰਹੈ ॥
eihu man nihachal hiradai vaseeale guramukh mool pachhaan rahai |

When the mind becomes steady and stable, it abides in the heart, and then the Gurmukh realizes the root, the source of all.

ਨਾਭਿ ਪਵਨੁ ਘਰਿ ਆਸਣਿ ਬੈਸੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਖੋਜਤ ਤਤੁ ਲਹੈ ॥
naabh pavan ghar aasan baisai guramukh khojat tat lahai |

The breath is seated in the home of the navel; the Gurmukh searches, and finds the essence of reality.

ਸੁ ਸਬਦੁ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਆਛੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਜੋਤਿ ਸੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਲਹੈ ॥
su sabad nirantar nij ghar aachhai tribhavan jot su sabad lahai |

This Shabad permeates the nucleus of the self, deep within, in its own home; the Light of this Shabad pervades the three worlds.

ਖਾਵੈ ਦੂਖ ਭੂਖ ਸਾਚੇ ਕੀ ਸਾਚੇ ਹੀ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਾਸਿ ਰਹੈ ॥
khaavai dookh bhookh saache kee saache hee tripataas rahai |

Hunger for the True Lord shall consume your pain, and through the True Lord, you shall be satisfied.

ਅਨਹਦ ਬਾਣੀ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਣੀ ਬਿਰਲੋ ਕੋ ਅਰਥਾਵੈ ॥
anahad baanee guramukh jaanee biralo ko arathaavai |

The Gurmukh knows the unstruck sound current of the Bani; how rare are those who understand.

ਨਾਨਕੁ ਆਖੈ ਸਚੁ ਸੁਭਾਖੈ ਸਚਿ ਰਪੈ ਰੰਗੁ ਕਬਹੂ ਨ ਜਾਵੈ ॥੬੫॥
naanak aakhai sach subhaakhai sach rapai rang kabahoo na jaavai |65|

Says Nanak, one who speaks the Truth is dyed in the color of Truth, which will never fade away. ||65||

ਜਾ ਇਹੁ ਹਿਰਦਾ ਦੇਹ ਨ ਹੋਤੀ ਤਉ ਮਨੁ ਕੈਠੈ ਰਹਤਾ ॥
jaa ihu hiradaa deh na hotee tau man kaitthai rahataa |

"When this heart and body did not exist, where did the mind reside?

ਨਾਭਿ ਕਮਲ ਅਸਥੰਭੁ ਨ ਹੋਤੋ ਤਾ ਪਵਨੁ ਕਵਨ ਘਰਿ ਸਹਤਾ ॥
naabh kamal asathanbh na hoto taa pavan kavan ghar sahataa |

When there was no support of the navel lotus, then in which home did the breath reside?

ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਹੋਤੋ ਰੇਖ ਨ ਕਾਈ ਤਾ ਸਬਦਿ ਕਹਾ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਈ ॥
roop na hoto rekh na kaaee taa sabad kahaa liv laaee |

When there was no form or shape, then how could anyone lovingly focus on the Shabad?

ਰਕਤੁ ਬਿੰਦੁ ਕੀ ਮੜੀ ਨ ਹੋਤੀ ਮਿਤਿ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਈ ॥
rakat bind kee marree na hotee mit keemat nahee paaee |

When there was no dungeon formed from egg and sperm, who could measure the Lord's value and extent?

ਵਰਨੁ ਭੇਖੁ ਅਸਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਜਾਪੀ ਕਿਉ ਕਰਿ ਜਾਪਸਿ ਸਾਚਾ ॥
varan bhekh asaroop na jaapee kiau kar jaapas saachaa |

When color, dress and form could not be seen, how could the True Lord be known?"

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮਿ ਰਤੇ ਬੈਰਾਗੀ ਇਬ ਤਬ ਸਾਚੋ ਸਾਚਾ ॥੬੬॥
naanak naam rate bairaagee ib tab saacho saachaa |66|

O Nanak, those who are attuned to the Naam, the Name of the Lord, are detached. Then and now, they see the Truest of the True. ||66||

ਹਿਰਦਾ ਦੇਹ ਨ ਹੋਤੀ ਅਉਧੂ ਤਉ ਮਨੁ ਸੁੰਨਿ ਰਹੈ ਬੈਰਾਗੀ ॥
hiradaa deh na hotee aaudhoo tau man sun rahai bairaagee |

When the heart and the body did not exist, O hermit, then the mind resided in the absolute, detached Lord.

ਨਾਭਿ ਕਮਲੁ ਅਸਥੰਭੁ ਨ ਹੋਤੋ ਤਾ ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਬਸਤਉ ਪਵਨੁ ਅਨਰਾਗੀ ॥
naabh kamal asathanbh na hoto taa nij ghar bastau pavan anaraagee |

When there was no support of the lotus of the navel, the breath remained in its own home, attuned to the Lord's Love.

ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਰੇਖਿਆ ਜਾਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਤੀ ਤਉ ਅਕੁਲੀਣਿ ਰਹਤਉ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁ ਸਾਰੁ ॥
roop na rekhiaa jaat na hotee tau akuleen rahtau sabad su saar |

When there was no form or shape or social class, then the Shabad, in its essence, resided in the unmanifest Lord.

ਗਉਨੁ ਗਗਨੁ ਜਬ ਤਬਹਿ ਨ ਹੋਤਉ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਜੋਤਿ ਆਪੇ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ॥
gaun gagan jab tabeh na hotau tribhavan jot aape nirankaar |

When the world and the sky did not even exist, the Light of the Formless Lord filled the three worlds.
