Invoking the ONE Almighty (karta) Creator of all universes, (purakh-u) all-pervasive, who has made (sat-i) eternal (naam-u) commands/cosmic laws; (nirbhau = beyond fear, is not answerable to anyone) being the highest authority does not fear or favor any one/thing, (nirvair = without enmity) is not against any one, (moorat-i = picture) is the embodiment of (akaal) timeless-ness and deathless-ness, (ajooni) does not take physical life form, (saibha-n) is self-existent; is known (gur prasaad-i) with the guru’s grace/guidance.

ਆਦਿ ਪੁਰਖ ਕਰਤਾਰ ਕਰਣ ਕਾਰਣ ਸਭ ਆਪੇ ॥ ਸਰਬ ਰਹਿਓ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ਸਗਲ ਘਟ ਰਹਿਓ ਬਿਆਪੇ ॥

Āḏ purakẖ karṯār karaṇ kāraṇ sabẖ āpe. Sarab rahi▫o bẖarpūr sagal gẖat rahi▫o bi▫āpe.

 

O Almighty, You are (purakh) existent before from before (aad-i) beginning – creation of universe, You (kartaar) the Creator are (aapey) Yourself (karan) the maker of (sab) all (kaaran) causes, i.e. everything happens by Your commands.

You (rahio = remain, bharpoor-i = filling) are present everywhere, and (rahi biaapey) pervade (sagal) all (ghatt = bodies) in all beings.

 

ਬ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਪਤੁ ਦੇਖੀਐ ਜਗਤਿ ਜਾਨੈ ਕਉਨੁ ਤੇਰੀ ਗਤਿ ਸਰਬ ਕੀ ਰਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਾ ਕਰੈ ਆਪੇ ਹਰਿ ਪਤਿ ॥ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਅਬਿਗਤ ਆਪੇ ਆਪਿ ਉਤਪਤਿ ॥ ਏਕੈ ਤੂਹੀ ਏਕੈ ਅਨ ਨਾਹੀ ਤੁਮ ਭਤਿ ॥

Ba▫yāpaṯ ḏekẖī▫ai jagaṯ jānai ka▫un ṯerī gaṯ sarab kī rakẖ▫yā karai āpe har paṯ.  Abẖināsī abigaṯ āpe āp uṯpaṯ.  Ėkai ṯūhī ekai an nāhī ṯum bẖaṯ.

 

You (deykheeai) are seen (jagat-i) in the world, i.e. Your presence is felt by everything happening in an orderly manner, but (kaun-u = who?) no one (jaanai) knows (teyree) Your (gat-i) state; You (karai = do, rakhiaa = protection) look after (sarab) all, (aapey) on Your own, o (har-i) Almighty (pat-i) Master.

You are (abinaasee = imperishable) Eternal, (abigat) formless/unseen and (utpat-i) created (aap-i) by the self.

 (Toohee) You (eykai) are One and (eykai = alone) unique, there is (naahee) no (an) other of (tum) Your (bhat-i) type.

 

ਹਰਿ ਅੰਤੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਪਾਰਾਵਾਰੁ ਕਉਨੁ ਹੈ ਕਰੈ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ਜਗਤ ਪਿਤਾ ਹੈ ਸ੍ਰਬ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਕੋ ਅਧਾਰੁ ॥ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਭਗਤੁ ਦਰਿ ਤੁਲਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਏਕ ਜੀਹ ਕਿਆ ਬਖਾਨੈ ॥ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਿ ॥੧॥

Har anṯ nāhī pārāvār ka▫un hai karai bīcẖār jagaṯ piṯā hai sarab parān ko aḏẖār.  Jan Nānak bẖagaṯ ḏar ṯul barahm samsar ek jīh ki▫ā bakẖānai.  Hāʼn kė bal bal bal bal saḏ balihār. ||1||

 

(Har-i) Almighty has no (ant-u) limit or (paaraavaar-u) far end; (kaun-u = who?) no one can (karai = do, beechaar-u = reflection) fathom what God is; is (pitaa) father/creator (ko) of (srab) the whole (jagat) world and (adhaar-u = support, ko = of, praan = breaths/lives) sustains all existence.

(Jan-u) humble fifth (nanak-u) Nanak says: (Bhagat-u) a devotee (dar-i) at the place of, i.e. one who obeys the Almighty, becomes (tul-i = equal, samsar-i = alike) the embodiment of (brahm) the Creator; my (eyk) one (jeeh/jeebh) tongue (kiaa = how?) cannot (bakhaanai = say) recount virtues of the Almighty.

(Haa’n) yes, I proclaim (k-i) that I (bal-i = sacrifice) kill my ego and (sad) ever (bal-i bali bal-i = sacrifice – thrice) obey the Almighty in thought, word and deed. 1.

 

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਪ੍ਰਵਾਹ ਸਰਿ ਅਤੁਲ ਭੰਡਾਰ ਭਰਿ ਪਰੈ ਹੀ ਤੇ ਪਰੈ ਅਪਰ ਅਪਾਰ ਪਰਿ ॥ ਆਪੁਨੋ ਭਾਵਨੁ ਕਰਿ ਮੰਤ੍ਰਿ ਨ ਦੂਸਰੋ ਧਰਿ ਓਪਤਿ ਪਰਲੌ ਏਕੈ ਨਿਮਖ ਤੁ ਘਰਿ ॥

Amriṯ parvāh sar aṯul bẖandār bẖar parai hī ṯe parai apar apār par.  Āpuno bẖāvan kar manṯar na ḏūsro ḏẖar opaṯ parloua ekai nimakẖ ṯo gẖar.

 

(Pravaah) streams of (amrit) the life giving elixir/Naam are (sar-i) flowing, Divine messages are being given to the mind by God; (atul = un-weighable) immeasurable (bhanddaar) storehouses are (bhar-i) full of devotion – one has only to take from there. Your being (par-i = is put) extends (parai) farther (hi tey) than (parai) the farthest; You are (apar apaar) Infinite.

You (kar-i) act on Your (aapuno) own (bhaavan-u = liking) decision, i.e. everything happens according to the Divine cosmic laws – as it naturally should; not (dhar-i) based on (doosro = second) anyone else’s (mantr-u) advice/direction; the power to (nimakh) instantly (opat-i) create and (parlou) destroy, lies (ghar-i = house) with (t-u) You.

 

ਆਨ ਨਾਹੀ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਉਜੀਆਰੋ ਨਿਰਮਰਿ ਕੋਟਿ ਪਰਾਛਤ ਜਾਹਿ ਨਾਮ ਲੀਏ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ॥ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਭਗਤੁ ਦਰਿ ਤੁਲਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਏਕ ਜੀਹ ਕਿਆ ਬਖਾਨੈ ॥ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਿ ॥੨॥

Ān nāhī samsar ujī▫āro nirmar kot parācẖẖaṯ jāhi nām lī▫e har har.  Jan Nānak bẖagaṯ ḏar ṯul barahm samsar ek jīh ki▫ā bakẖānai.   Hāʼn kė bal bal bal bal saḏ balihār. ||2||

 

(Naahee = not) there is none (aan) other (samsar-i) equal to You; (ujeeaaro = light) Naam/virtues and commands (nimar-i/nirmal-i = cleanses) purifies as (kott-i) crores of/countless (prachhat = sins) transgressions (jaah-i = go) being given up (leeay = taking) with practice of (har-i = dispels vices) the purifying and (har-i = makes green) rejuvenating (naam) Divine virtues and commands. 

(Jan-u) humble fifth (nanak-u) Nanak says: (Bhagat-u) a devotee (dar-i) at the place of, i.e. one who obeys the Almighty, becomes (tul-i = equal, samsar-i = alike) the embodiment of (brahm) the Creator; my (eyk) one (jeeh/jeebh) tongue (kiaa = how?) cannot (bakhaanai = say) recount virtues of the Almighty.

(Haa’n) yes, I proclaim (k-i) that I (bal-i = sacrifice) kill my ego and (sad) ever (bal-i bali bal-i = sacrifice – thrice) obey the Almighty in thought, word and deed. 2.

 

ਸਗਲ ਭਵਨ ਧਾਰੇ ਏਕ ਥੇਂ ਕੀਏ ਬਿਸਥਾਰੇ ਪੂਰਿ ਰਹਿਓ ਸ੍ਰਬ ਮਹਿ ਆਪਿ ਹੈ ਨਿਰਾਰੇ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਨ ਨਾਹੀ ਅੰਤ ਪਾਰੇ ਜੀਅ ਜੰਤ ਸਭਿ ਥਾਰੇ ਸਗਲ ਕੋ ਦਾਤਾ ਏਕੈ ਅਲਖ ਮੁਰਾਰੇ ॥
Sagal bẖavan ḏẖāre ek theʼn kī▫e bisthāre pūr rahi▫o sarab mėh āp hai nirāre.  Har gun nāhī anṯ pāre jī▫a janṯ sabẖ thāre sagal ko ḏāṯā ekai alakẖ murāre.

 

The Creator (dhaarey) established (sagal) all (bhavan = places/buildings) existence; and (keeay = made, bisthaarey = expanded) created them all (they’n) from (eyk = one) IT-self; is (poor-i rahio = is filling) present (mah-i) in (srab) all, but (aap-i) IT-self (niraarey = different) untouched by what goes on there.

(Ant-i = limits) the expanse of (gun) attributes of (har-i) the Almighty cannot (paarey) be known; (sabh) all (jeea jant) creatures (thaarey = your) are created by, and is (daataa = giver) the Sustainor (ko) of (sagal) all; is (alakh = without signs) unseen; and (muraarey = killer of demon Mur) destroy evil, o Almighty.

ਆਪ ਹੀ ਧਾਰਨ ਧਾਰੇ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਹੈ ਦੇਖਾਰੇ ਬਰਨੁ ਚਿਹਨੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਮੁਖ ਨ ਮਸਾਰੇ ॥ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਭਗਤੁ ਦਰਿ ਤੁਲਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਏਕ ਜੀਹ ਕਿਆ ਬਖਾਨੈ ॥ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਿ ॥੩॥
Āp hī ḏẖāran ḏẖāre kuḏraṯ hai ḏekẖāre baran cẖihan nāhī mukẖ na masāre.  Jan Nānak bẖagaṯ ḏar ṯul barahm samsar ek jīh ki▫ā bakẖānai.   Hāʼn kė bal bal bal bal saḏ balihār. ||3||

 

The Almighty (aapey hi) IT-self alone (dhaarey) supports (dhaaran) the creation; and (deykhaarey) shows the Self (kudrat-i) in nature since the Almighty – not being a person – has no (baran-u) color, (chihan-u) features or (chihan) identification, (mukh) face and (masaarey) beard.

(Jan-u) humble fifth (nanak-u) Nanak says: (Bhagat-u) a devotee (dar-i) at the place of, i.e. one who obeys the Almighty, becomes (tul-i = equal, samsar-i = alike) the embodiment of (brahm) the Creator; my (eyk) one (jeeh/jeebh) tongue (kiaa = how?) cannot (bakhaanai = say) recount virtues of the Almighty.

(Haa’n) yes, I proclaim (k-i) that I (bal-i = sacrifice) kill my ego and (sad) ever (bal-i bali bal-i = sacrifice – thrice) obey the Almighty in thought, word and deed. 3.

 

ਸਰਬ ਗੁਣ ਨਿਧਾਨੰ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨ ਗ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਨੰ ਧ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਨੰ ਊਚੇ ਤੇ ਊਚੌ ਜਾਨੀਜੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਤੇਰੋ ਥਾਨੰ ॥ ਮਨੁ ਧਨੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੰ ਏਕੈ ਸੂਤਿ ਹੈ ਜਹਾਨੰ ਕਵਨ ਉਪਮਾ ਦੇਉ ਬਡੇ ਤੇ ਬਡਾਨੰ ॥

Sarab guṇ niḏẖānaʼn kīmaṯ na ga▫yāna ḏẖa▫yāna ūcẖe ṯe ūcẖou jānījai parabẖ ṯero thānaʼn.  Man ḏẖan ṯero parānaʼn ekai sūṯ hai jahānaʼn kavan upmā ḏe▫o bade ṯe badānaʼn.

 

You are (nidhaana’n) the treasure of (srab) all (gun) virtues, and Your (keemat-i = price) worth is not known through (giaana’n = knowledge) through scriptures or by (dhiaan’n) contemplation; (teyro) Your (thaan’n = place) status is (jaaneejai) known to be (oochou) higher (tey) than (oochey) the highest, o (prabh) Almighty.

My (man-u = mind) soul, (dhan-u) wealth and (praan’n) breaths/life are (teyro = your) given by You; (jahaan’n) the world/all existence is controlled by (soot-i = string – like in a rosary) the cosmic laws made by (eykai = one) the Almighty; You are (baddaan’n) greater (tey) than (baddey) the greatest, I (deyo = give/make, upma = comparison) can compare God with (kavan = who?) no one – God is unique and above all.

 

ਜਾਨੈ ਕਉਨੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਭੇਉ ਅਲਖ ਅਪਾਰ ਦੇਉ ਅਕਲ ਕਲਾ ਹੈ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਰਬ ਕੋ ਧਾਨੰ ॥ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਭਗਤੁ ਦਰਿ ਤੁਲਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਸਮਸਰਿ ਏਕ ਜੀਹ ਕਿਆ ਬਖਾਨੈ ॥ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਸਦ ਬਲਿਹਾਰਿ ॥੪॥

Jānai ka▫un ṯero bẖe▫o alakẖ apār ḏe▫o akal kalā hai parabẖ sarab ko ḏẖānaʼn.  Jan Nānak bẖagaṯ ḏar ṯul barahm samsar ek jīh ki▫ā bakẖānai.   Hāʼn kė bal bal bal bal saḏ balihār. ||4||

 

(Kaun-u = who?) no one (jaanai) knows (teyro) Your (bheyo/bheyd) mystery – virtues and powers o (apar apaar) the Infinite (deyo) God; Your (kalaa) powers are (akal) beyond comprehension; (prabh) the Almighty is (dhaan’n) the mainstay of (sarab) all.

(Jan-u) humble fifth (nanak-u) Nanak says: (Bhagat-u) a devotee (dar-i) at the place of, i.e. one who obeys the Almighty, becomes (tul-i = equal, samsar-i = alike) the embodiment of (brahm) the Creator; my (eyk) one (jeeh/jeebh) tongue (kiaa = how?) cannot (bakhaanai = say) recount virtues of the Almighty.

(Haa’n) yes, I proclaim (k-i) that I (bal-i = sacrifice) kill my ego and (sad) ever (bal-i bali bal-i = sacrifice – thrice) obey the Almighty in thought, word and deed. 4.

 

ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ਆਕਾਰ ਅਛਲ ਪੂਰਨ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ॥ ਹਰਖਵੰਤ ਆਨੰਤ ਰੂਪ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਬਿਗਾਸੀ ॥ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਵਹਿ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਅੰਤੁ ਇਕੁ ਤਿਲੁ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਸੀ ॥

Nirankār ākār acẖẖal pūran abẖināsī. Harakẖvanṯ ānanṯ rūp nirmal bigāsī.   Guṇ gāvahi be▫anṯ anṯ ik ṯil nahī the pāsī.

 

The Almighty is (nirankaar-u) formless, also has (akaar) form, (pooran = fills) pervades in the creation, but unlike all creation, is (achhal = not deceivable) not subject to temptations and hence (abinaasee = imperishable) Eternal is (nirmal = clean) pristine.

The Almighty (harakhvant = joyous) enjoys looking after the creation, has (aanant) infinite (bigaasee = blossoming) pleasing (roop) forms.

(Beyant) countless people (gaavah-i = sing) praise Divine virtues but (naahi) do not (paasee = get) know even (ik-u) one (til-u = equal to sesame seed) bit God’s (ant-u = limits of expanse) worth – virtues and powers.

 

ਜਾ ਕਉ ਹੋਂਹਿ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਲ ਸੁ ਜਨੁ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਤੁਮਹਿ ਮਿਲਾਸੀ ॥ ਧੰਨਿ ਧੰਨਿ ਤੇ ਧੰਨਿ ਜਨ ਜਿਹ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਲੁ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਭਯਉ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਜਿਨ ਪਰਸਿਅਉ ਸਿ ਜਨਮ ਮਰਣ ਦੁਹ ਥੇ ਰਹਿਓ ॥੫॥

Jā ka▫o hoʼnhi kirpāl so jan parabẖ ṯumėh milāsī.   Ḏẖan ḏẖan ṯe ḏẖan jan jih kirpāl har har bẖa▫ya▫o.  Har gur Nānak jin parsi▫o sė janam maraṇ ḏuh the rahi▫o. ||5||

 

One (kau) to (ja) whom God (ho’nh-i) is kind, IT (milaasee = causes to meet) finds (tumah-i) You.

Those (jih) whom (har-i har-i) the Almighty (bhayau) is (kripaal) kind – to lead to you and you unite with God, (tey) those (jan) persons are (dha’nn-i dha’nn-i dha’nn-i) blessed thrice – they remember God in thought, word and deed.

Those (jin) who (parsiau = touch) meet/follow Guru Nanak, the embodiment of (har-i) the Almighty, (s-i) those persons (rahio) are saved (tey) from (janam) births and (maran) deaths, i.e. they do not fall prey to temptations in life to be reborn after death. 5.

 

ਸਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਸਤਿ ਸਤਿ ਸਤੇ ਸਤਿ ਭਣੀਐ ॥ ਦੂਸਰ ਆਨ ਨ ਅਵਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਪਊਰਾਤਨੁ ਸੁਣੀਐ ॥

Saṯ saṯ har saṯ saṯ saṯe saṯ bẖaṇī▫ai.   Ḏūsar ān na avar purakẖ pa▫urāṯan suṇī▫ai.

 

(Har-i) the Almighty (sat-i sat-i satey = ever true) has existed in the past, is present now and shall be in future; the Almighty (bhaneeai = described) is praised and obeyed (sat-i sat-i satey = ever true) in all ages.

We do not (suneeai) hear of any (aan, avar-u) other (purakh-u = personality) being to be (paooraatan-u) primal, i.e. none existed before God created the creatures – no one else is self-created.

 

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਮੁ ਲੈਤ ਮਨਿ ਸਭ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਏ ॥ ਜੇਹ ਰਸਨ ਚਾਖਿਓ ਤੇਹ ਜਨ ਤ੍ਰਿਪਤਿ ਅਘਾਏ ॥

Amriṯ har ko nām laiṯ man sabẖ sukẖ pā▫e.   Jeh rasan cẖākẖi▫o ṯeh jan ṯaripaṯ agẖā▫e.

 

(Sabh) all (sukh) comforts are, i.e. all objectives are achieved and peace – attained (man-i) by the mind, (lait = taking) with awareness and practice of (amrit-u) the life giving (naam) virtues and commands (ko) of (har-i) the Almighty.

Those (jeyh) who (chaakhio) taste the elixir, i.e. those who practice Naam, (teyh) those (jan) persons are (tripat-i, aghaaey) satiated, i.e. all their aspirations are fulfilled – as they do things the right way.

 

ਜਿਹ ਠਾਕੁਰੁ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨੁ ਭਯੋੁ ਸਤਸੰਗਤਿ ਤਿਹ ਪਿਆਰੁ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਪਰਸਿਓ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਸਭ ਕੁਲ ਕੀਓ ਉਧਾਰੁ ॥੬॥

Jih ṯẖākur suparsan bẖa▫yo saṯsangaṯ ṯih pi▫ār.   Har gur Nānak jinĥ parsi▫o ṯinĥ sabẖ kul kī▫o uḏẖār. ||6||

 

Those to (jih) whom (tthaakur-u) the Master (bhayu/bhaio) is (supras’nn-u) well pleased – to motivate – (tih) they (piaar-u) love (satsangat-i) the holy congregation – of Guru Nanak. Those (jinh) who (parsio = touch) meet and follow Guru Nanak, the embodiment of (har-i) the Almighty, (keeo = do, udhaar-u = lifting) bring good name (tinh) their (sabh) whole (kul) lineage. 6.

 

ਸਚੁ ਸਭਾ ਦੀਬਾਣੁ ਸਚੁ ਸਚੇ ਪਹਿ ਧਰਿਓ ॥ ਸਚੈ ਤਖਤਿ ਨਿਵਾਸੁ ਸਚੁ ਤਪਾਵਸੁ ਕਰਿਓ ॥

Sacẖ sabẖā ḏībāṇ sacẖ sacẖe pėh ḏẖari▫o.   Sacẖai ṯakẖaṯ nivās sacẖ ṯapāvas kari▫o.

 

After consideration in (sabhaa) assembly/meeting of (deebaan-u) court, Dharam Raaey – the metaphoric judge -(dhario) places (sach-u) the truth – about conduct of the souls – (pah-i) before of (sachey) the Eternal.

The Almighty (nivaas-i = resident) sitting on (sachai = true) the eternal (takhat-i) throne, (kario = makes) delivers (sach-u) true (tapaavas-u) justice – for the soul.

 

ਸਚਿ ਸਿਰਜ੍ਯ੍ਯਿਉ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ਆਪਿ ਆਭੁਲੁ ਨ ਭੁਲਉ ॥ ਰਤਨ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਪਾਰੁ ਕੀਮ ਨਹੁ ਪਵੈ ਅਮੁਲਉ ॥

Sacẖ sirji▫ya▫o sansār āp ābẖul na bẖula▫o.   Raṯan nām apār kīm nahu pavai amula▫o.

 

(Sach-i) the Eternal (sirjihiu) created (sansaar-u) the universe – as it should be -; (aap-i = self) the Almighty is (aabhul-u) infallible and does not (bhulau) err.

The Creator laid down (ratan = jewel) the valuable (naam-u) commands/cosmic laws – for functioning of the universe; Naam is (amulau) priceless its (keem) price cannot (pavai) be put, i.e. awareness of Naam is obtained by following the guru – and not bought by offerings/worships.

 

ਜਿਹ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਲੁ ਹੋਯਉ ਗੋੁਬਿੰਦੁ ਸਰਬ ਸੁਖ ਤਿਨਹੂ ਪਾਏ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਪਰਸਿਓ ਤੇ ਬਹੁੜਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਜੋਨਿ ਨ ਆਏ ॥੭॥

Jih kirpāl ho▫ya▫o gobinḏ sarab sukẖ ṯinhū pā▫e.   Har gur Nānak jinĥ parsi▫o ṯe bahuṛ fir jon na ā▫e. ||7||

 

Those to (jih) whom (gubind-u/gobind) the Master of the world (hoyau) is (kripaal-u) kind – to lead to Guru Nanak, (tinhoo) they (paaey) obtain (sarab) all (sukh) comforts, i.e. all their aspirations are fulfilled by following Guru Nanak.

Those (jinh) who (parsio = touch) meet/follow Guru Nanak – they commit no transgressions and do not (aaey) come to any (jon-i) life form (bahurr-i) again. 7.

 

ਕਵਨੁ ਜੋਗੁ ਕਉਨੁ ਗ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਨੁ ਧ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਨੁ ਕਵਨ ਬਿਧਿ ਉਸ੍ਤਤਿ ਕਰੀਐ ॥ ਸਿਧ ਸਾਧਿਕ ਤੇਤੀਸ ਕੋਰਿ ਤਿਰੁ ਕੀਮ ਨ ਪਰੀਐ ॥

Kavan jog ka▫un ga▫yān ḏẖeān kavan biḏẖ usṯaṯ karī▫ai.   Siḏẖ sāḏẖik ṯeṯīs kor ṯir kīm na parī▫ai.

 

(Kaun-u) which is the method to attain (jog-u) union with God; (kaun-u) which is (gyaan-u) knowledge and which is the object of (dhyaan-u) contemplation, and by (kavan) what (bidh-i) method of (kareeai) doing (ustat-i) praising, i.e. what we should praise and emulate.

(Sidh) saints, (sadhak = practitioners) seekers and (teytees) thirty three (kor-i) crore – gods of Hindu belief – cannot (pareeai) put (keem) price, i.e. have not known (tir-u/til-u = sesame seed) a bit of virtues and powers of God.

 

ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾਦਿਕ ਸਨਕਾਦਿ ਸੇਖ ਗੁਣ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਪਾਏ ॥ ਅਗਹੁ ਗਹਿਓ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਇ ਪੂਰਿ ਸ੍ਰਬ ਰਹਿਓ ਸਮਾਏ ॥

Barahmāḏik sankāḏ sekẖ guṇ anṯ na pā▫e.   Agahu gahi▫o nahī jā▫e pūr sarab rahi▫o samā▫e.

 

Gods (brahmaadik = Brahma etc) like Brahma, sages (sakaadik) like Sanak and (seykh/Sheshnaag) the thousand headed serpent have not (paaey) found (ant-u) end, i.e. all of the countless (gun) virtues of the Almighty.

The Almighty (agah-u = not held) is beyond reach and (na jaaey) cannot be (gahio) held/understood; God (poor-i) pervades in (sarab) all places and (rahio) remains (samaaey) contained in creatures – and directs them from within.

 

ਜਿਹ ਕਾਟੀ ਸਿਲਕ ਦਯਾਲ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਸੇਇ ਜਨ ਲਗੇ ਭਗਤੇ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਪਰਸਿਓ ਤੇ ਇਤ ਉਤ ਸਦਾ ਮੁਕਤੇ ॥੮॥

Jih kātī silak ḏa▫yāl parabẖ se▫e jan lage bẖagṯe.   Har gur Nānak jinĥ parsi▫o ṯe iṯ uṯ saḏā mukṯe. ||8||

 

Those (jih) whose (silk = rope) attachment to the world-play (kaattee) is cut by (dayaal) the kind (prabh-i) Almighty, (sey) those persons  follow Guru Nanak to (lagey) apply themselves (bhagtey = devotion) obeying the Almighty.

Those (jinh) who (parsio = touch) meet/obey Guru Nanak; (tey) they are (muktey) emancipated (it) here and (ut = there) in the hereafter, i.e. they are free from vices in life, and from rebirth after death. 8.

 

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਦਾਤਉ ਦਾਤਾਰ ਪਰ੍ਯ੍ਯਿਉ ਜਾਚਕੁ ਇਕੁ ਸਰਨਾ ॥ ਮਿਲੈ ਦਾਨੁ ਸੰਤ ਰੇਨ ਜੇਹ ਲਗਿ ਭਉਜਲੁ ਤਰਨਾ ॥

Parabẖ ḏāṯa▫o ḏāṯār pari▫ya▫o jācẖak ik sarnā.   Milai ḏān sanṯ ren jeh lag bẖa▫ojal ṯarnā.

 

(Ik-u = one) this (jaachak-u) beggar (parhiau) has placed the self (sarna = sanctuary) in care and obedience of (prabh) the Almighty, (daatau) the giver/sustainer of (daataar) those who give to others —

With the supplication that he (milai) gets (reyn = dust of the feet) the opportunity to serve, and follow the example of, (sant = saints) devotees of God, by (lag-i) applying (jeyh = which) dust, i.e. following the example of the devotees, one (tarna) swims across (bhaujal-u) the world-ocean, i.e. overcomes temptations in the world to attain union with God, and not be reborn.

 

ਬਿਨਤਿ ਕਰਉ ਅਰਦਾਸਿ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਜੇ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਭਾਵੈ ॥ ਦੇਹੁ ਦਰਸੁ ਮਨਿ ਚਾਉ ਭਗਤਿ ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਠਹਰਾਵੈ ॥

Binaṯ kara▫o arḏās sunhu je ṯẖākur bẖāvai.   Ḏeh ḏaras man cẖā▫o bẖagaṯ ih man ṯẖėhrāvai.

 

I (karau) make this (binat-i) submission; (sunhh-u = listen) this is my (ardaas-i) supplication; that (jey) if (tthaakur) the Master (bhaavai) be pleased –

ਬਲਿਓ ਚਰਾਗੁ ਅੰਧ੍ਯ੍ਯਾਰ ਮਹਿ ਸਭ ਕਲਿ ਉਧਰੀ ਇਕ ਨਾਮ ਧਰਮ ॥ ਪ੍ਰਗਟੁ ਸਗਲ ਹਰਿ ਭਵਨ ਮਹਿ ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ॥੯॥

Bali▫o cẖarāg anḏẖ▫yār mėh sabẖ kal uḏẖrī ik nām ḏẖaram.  Pargat sagal har bẖavan mėh jan Nānak gur pārbarahm. ||9||

 

In response to the above supplication of mankind, (charaag-u) a lamp (balio) was lit (mah-i) in (andhyaar) darkness, and (sabh-i) all (kal-i) Kaliyug mankind (udhree) was lifted by (dharam = religion) practice of (naam) virtues and commands of (ik) alone – free of any rituals, worships and superstitions.

(Jan-u) the devotee Guru Nanak, the embodiment of (paarbrahm) the Supreme Being, (pragatt-u = manifest) became known (mah-i) in the whole (bhavan = places) bodies/minds created by (har-i) the Almighty. 9.
