You are (ik-u = one) the lone (daataa = giver) provider and (sabh-u) the whole (jagat-u) world, i.e. all creatures are (bhikhaareeaa) beggars, o (har-i) Almighty; they (jaachah-i) beg for their (mang manganaa) needs – and You provide.

(Jo) whatever you (ichhah-i) wish you (paaeysi) shall obtain (phal-u = fruit) fulfilment of (so) that; but remember, (dhiaan-u) attention of the mind (lagai) is fixed (sabdi = with the word) with guidance of (gur) the guru.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. (Har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = makes green) revitalizing Naam/Divine virtues and commands (pavit-u/pavitr) consecrating; (dukh-u) the pain of separation from God (jaaey) leaves (japat) with remembrance/practice of Naam – as one shuns transgressions.

(Kinai na = not any) no one can (paaiaao) find/unite with the Almighty/be at peace by (aapnai) own (bhaanai) will; (pateeaaey) test it (man-i) in the mind – ego/self-will only makes one restless.

(Jan-u) humble fourth Nanak is (daas-u) the servant (daasan) of servants of the Almighty (jo) who (laagey = touch, paaey = feet) place themselves in care, and follow instructions, of (satigur) the true guru. 2.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. Awareness of (har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = makes green) rejuvenating; Naam is (amrit-u) is the life-giving (ras-u) elixir; keep (har-i) the Divine (amrit-u) life-giving Naam (ur dhaar-i) in mind.

(Har-i) the Almighty (prabh-u) Master (vartadaa = pervades) abides (vich-i) in (sangat-i) the holy congregation – where Naam/Divine virtues and commands are recounted and learnt to practice; join it to (veechaar-i) reflect on (sabad = word) Naam and (bujhahu) understand.

One who (dhiaaiaa) contemplates (har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = makes green) rejuvenating Naam/Divine virtues and commands, s/he (maar-i) kills and (kaddhi) throws out (haumai = ego) acting by self-will.

On the other hand, one (jin) who does not (cheytio) keep in mind (har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = makes green) rejuvenating Naam/Divine virtues and commands, (tin = that) s/he (haar-i = loses) wastes (sabh-u) the whole (janam-u) human birth/life – which is the opportunity to obey and find God.

Those with whom (gur-i) the guru (tutthai) is pleased, he (cheytaaiaa) reminds them of (har-i) God, and (urdhaar-i) to keep in mind (naam) Naam of (har-i) the Almighty.

(Tey) their (mukh) faces are found (ujley) clean, i.e. no faults are found with them when account of deeds is taken, in (tit-u = that) there in (darbaar-i) court (sachai) of the Eternal, says fourth Nanak. 1.

(Slok) prologue (M: 4) by the fourth Guru. (Keerat-i) glorification of (har-i) the Almighty and practice of (naam-u) Naam/Divine virtues and commands is (utam-u) the most sublime practice; it is (saar-u) the superb (karni = act) practice (vich-i) in (kalijug) in the age of conflict/duality – with distractions galore.

(Mat-i) the sense (keerat-i) to praise God (paaeeai) is obtained (gurmat-i) with the guru’s counsel to keep (naama) Naam of (har-i) the Almighty close to the self (ur haar-i) like a garland on the neck.

Those (jin) who (dhiaaiaa) invoke (har-i) the Almighty are (vaddbhaagi) fortunate; (har-i) the Almighty has (saupiaa) given them (bhanddaar-u = store) abundant devotion.

 

ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਜਿ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਵਣੇ ਨਿਤ ਹਉਮੈ ਹੋਇ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥ ਜਲਿ ਹਸਤੀ ਮਲਿ ਨਾਵਾਲੀਐ ਸਿਰਿ ਭੀ ਫਿਰਿ ਪਾਵੈ ਛਾਰੁ ॥

(J-i) whatever (karam) rituals one (kamaavney) does (bin-u = without) ignoring (naavai) Naam are done in (haumai) in ego, one (hoey) is (khuaar-u) frustrated – in effort to find the Almighty.

It is like one (mal-i = rubbing) diligently (naavaaleeai) bathing (hasti) an elephant (jal-i) with water; but it (paavai) throws (chhaar-u) dust (sir-i) on its head (bhi phir-i) again.

(Hamaara) our (har-i) the Almighty (naaik-u = leader) Master is (purakh-u) all-pervasive; (naam-u) Naam/virtues and commands of (raam) the Almighty are(ootam-u) the sublime (vakhar-u) merchandise, i.e. awareness of Naam is the sublime resource/guide to conduct ourselves.

(Har-i) the Almighty has (keeaa) created (kheyl-u = play) the world, in which (har-i) the Almighty (aapey) IT-self (vartai = pervades) is present; God the source of finance/virtues has (keeaa) made (sabh-u) all (jagat-u = world) creatures (vanjaara) traders – with directions to deal/conduct themselves with Naam.

 

ਸਭ ਜੋਤਿ ਤੇਰੀ ਜੋਤੀ ਵਿਚਿ ਕਰਤੇ ਸਭੁ ਸਚੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਪਾਸਾਰਾ ॥ ਸਭਿ ਧਿਆਵਹਿ ਤੁਧੁ ਸਫਲ ਸੇ ਗਾਵਹਿ ਗੁਰਮਤੀ ਹਰਿ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰਾ ॥ ਸਭਿ ਚਵਹੁ ਮੁਖਹੁ ਜਗੰਨਾਥੁ ਜਗੰਨਾਥੁ ਜਗਜੀਵਨੋ ਜਿਤੁ ਭਵਜਲ ਪਾਰਿ ਉਤਾਰਾ ॥੪॥

sabh jōti tērī jōtī vichi karatē sabhu sachu tērā pāsārā. sabhi dhiāvahi tudhu saphal sē gāvahi guramatī hari niraṅkārā. sabhi chavahu mukhahu jagannāthu jagannāthu jagajīvanō jitu bhavajal pāri utārā.੪.
(Sabh) all existence is manifestation of (teyri) Your (jot-i) Spirit, o (kartey) Creator; (too) You are present (vich-i) in (joti) in the souls/existence; (sabh-u) all (teyra) Your (paasaara = expanse) creation is (sach-u) real – the creatures are to live in it and conduct themselves by Naam.

(Sabh-i) all those who (dhiaavah-i) pay attention to (tudh-u) Your Naam, (sey) they are (saphal) successful in uniting with You; they (gaavah-i = sing) praise and emulate Divine virtues (gurmati) with the guru’s guidance, O (nirankaara) Formless (har-i) Almighty.

Let us (sabh-i) all (chavhu = say) praise (jagannaath-u) the Master of the world, the revered (jagannaath-u) Master, (mukhahu) with the mouth and obey; (jit-u) which alone can (utaara) land (paar-i) on the far shore of (bhavjal) the world-ocean, i.e. enables to overcome vices in the world-play and be acceptable for union with God, not to be born again. 4.
