ਸੋਈ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਸਿਵਰਿ ਸਾਚਾ ਜਾ ਕਾ ਇਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਛਲੁ ਸੰਸਾਰੇ ॥ ਜਿਨਿ ਭਗਤ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਾਰੇ ਸਿਮਰਹੁ ਸੋਈ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਰਧਾਨੁ ॥ ਤਿਤੁ ਨਾਮਿ ਰਸਿਕੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਲਹਣਾ ਥਪਿਓ ਜੇਨ ਸ੍ਰਬ ਸਿਧੀ ॥

So▫ī purakẖ sivar sācẖā jā kā ik nām acẖẖal sansāre.  Jin bẖagaṯ bẖavjal ṯāre simrahu so▫ī nām parḏẖān.  Ŧiṯ nām rasik Nānak lahṇā thapi▫o jen sarab siḏẖī.

Guru Nanak (rasik = lover) enjoyed the practice (naam-i) of Naam; he ensured commitment to Naam as test before he (thapio) installed Lahna as Guru Angad (jeyn/jin) who obtained (srab) all (sidhee) powers – capabilities of the true guru.

Guru Nanak (bardaaiyau) imparted awareness of Naam of (har-i) the Almighty with his (rasan-i) tongue as (gurmukh-i) the guru’s teaching to Guru Angad; he caused (gang) the river Ganga – which flows from west to east – (dhareea) to flow (ultt-i) backwards (pashchim-i) to the west, i.e. taught to give up the then current rituals and revert to remember and obey Naam/Divine virtues and commands.
