ਸਵਈਏ ਮਹਲੇ ਚਉਥੇ ਕੇ ੪   ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥

Sava▫ī▫e mahle cẖa▫uthe ke 4   Ik▫oaʼnkār saṯgur parsāḏ.

 

(Svaeeay) verses in praise (key) of (chauthey) the fourth (mahaley = body) guru.   Invoking the One all-pervasive Creator who may be known with the true guru’s grace/guidance.

 

ਇਕ ਮਨਿ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਧਿਆਵਉ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਸਦ ਗਾਵਉ ॥ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵਤ ਮਨਿ ਹੋਇ ਬਿਗਾਸਾ ॥ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪੂਰਿ ਜਨਹ ਕੀ ਆਸਾ ॥

Ik man purakẖ niranjan ḏẖi▫āva▫o.   Gur parsāḏ har guṇ saḏ gāva▫o.  Gun gāvaṯ man ho▫e bigāsā.   Saṯgur pūr janah kī āsā.

 

I (dhiaavau) invoke (purakh-u) the all-pervasive (niranjan-u = un-stained) pristine Almighty with (ik) single (man-I = mind) minded attention; I (sad) ever (gaavau = sing) praise (gun) virtues of (har-i) the Almighty – and emulate them – (prasaad-i) with grace/guidance of (gur) the guru.

(Gaava) singing/praising and emulating (gun) Divine virtues (hoey = happens) brings (bigaasa) happiness – by experiencing the Almighty (man-i) in the mind. (Satigur) the true guru (poor-i) fulfills (aasa) wishes (janah = of servant) of the seeker – by guiding to achieve this.

 

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਸੇਵਿ ਪਰਮ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਯਉ ॥ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਅਬਿਗਤੁ ਧਿਆਯਉ ॥ ਤਿਸੁ ਭੇਟੇ ਦਾਰਿਦ੍ਰੁ ਨ ਚੰਪੈ ॥ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਸਹਾਰੁ ਤਾਸੁ ਗੁਣ ਜੰਪੈ ॥

Saṯgur sev param paḏ pā▫ya▫o.   Abẖināsī abigaṯ ḏẖi▫ā▫ya▫o.  Ŧis bẖete ḏāriḏar na cẖampai.   Kal▫y sahār ṯās guṇ jampai.

 

One (paayau) attains (param) the supreme (pad-u) state – of driving out other ideas/overcoming temptations and experiencing the Almighty in mind – (seyv-i = serving) by following (satigur-u) the true guru’s teachings to (dhiaayau) paying attention to (abigat-i) the Formless (abinaasee) Eternal Almighty.

(Daaridr-u = poverty) lack of – wealth of awareness of – Naam/Divine virtues and commands no longer (champai) clings/remains (bheyttey = meeting) by meeting/following (tis-u = that) the true guru, to one who (jampai) remembers/praises (gun) virtues, – and follows instructions – of (taas-u = that) the true guru, says the bard Kal Sahaar.

 

ਜੰਪਉ ਗੁਣ ਬਿਮਲ ਸੁਜਨ ਜਨ ਕੇਰੇ ਅਮਿਅ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਫੁਰਿਆ ॥ ਇਨਿ ਸਤਗੁਰੁ ਸੇਵਿ ਸਬਦ ਰਸੁ ਪਾਯਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਿਰੰਜਨ ਉਰਿ ਧਰਿਆ ॥

Jampa▫o guṇ bimal sujan jan kere ami▫a nām jā ka▫o furi▫ā.  In saṯgur sev sabaḏ ras pā▫yā nām niranjan ur ḏẖari▫ā.

 

I (jampau) praise/obey (bimal = stain-less) sublime (gun) virtues – and instructions – (keyrey) of (sujan = good person) sublime (jan) personality, (kau) to (ja) whom (amia/amrit) life-giving awareness of Naam (phuriaa) came in mind – was imparted by the third guru.

(In-i = that) Guru Ramdas (seyv-i = served) followed (satigur-u) the true guru/third guru and (paayaa) experienced (ras-u) taste/joy; he (dhariaa) kept Naam/virtues and commands of (miranjan) the pristine Almighty (ur-i) in mind, i.e. practiced Naam.

 

ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮ ਰਸਿਕੁ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਹਕੁ ਚਾਹਕੁ ਤਤ ਸਮਤ ਸਰੇ ॥ ਕਵਿ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਠਕੁਰ ਹਰਦਾਸ ਤਨੇ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਸਰ ਅਭਰ ਭਰੇ ॥੧॥

Har nām rasik gobinḏ guṇ gāhak cẖāhak ṯaṯ samaṯ sare. Kav kal▫y ṯẖakur harḏās ṯane gur Rāmḏās sar abẖar bẖare. ||1||

 

The fourth guru (rasik-u = lover) loved/obeyed Naam of (har-i) the Almighty; as (chaahak-u) a seeker, he (gaahak = buyer) acquired/obtained awareness of (gun) virtues/commands of (gobind = master of the world) the Almighty.

Says (kav-i/kavee) poet/bard (kalya) Kal Sahaar: O (gur) guru Ramdas (taney) son of Hardaas, you are such a guru who (bharey) fills (abhar) empty (sar) pools, i.e. imparts awareness of Naam to ignorant minds. 1.

 

ਛੁਟਤ ਪਰਵਾਹ ਅਮਿਅ ਅਮਰਾ ਪਦ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਸਰੋਵਰ ਸਦ ਭਰਿਆ ॥ ਤੇ ਪੀਵਹਿ ਸੰਤ ਕਰਹਿ ਮਨਿ ਮਜਨੁ ਪੁਬ ਜਿਨਹੁ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰੀਆ ॥

Cẖẖutaṯ parvāh ami▫a amrā paḏ amriṯ sarovar saḏ bẖari▫ā.  Ŧe pīvėh sanṯ karahi man majan pub jinahu sevā karī▫ā.

 

(Parvaah) springs of (amia/amrit) of life-giving awareness of Naam (chtuttat) flow, bringing (pad) state of (amraa) immortality, i.e. not succumbing to temptations; (sarovar) the pool of (amrit) the life-giving elixir/Naam is (sad) ever (bhariaa) full, i.e. awareness of Naam is ever available from the true guru.

(Sant = saints) the seekers (peevah-i) drink (tey) that, and (karah-i = take, majan-u = bath) bathe (man-i) the mind with it; this is done by those (jinh-u) who (seyva = service, kareeaa = did) who obeyed the Almighty in (pub) past births, i.e. they are motivated from within.

 

ਤਿਨ ਭਉ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ਅਨਭੈ ਪਦੁ ਦੀਨਾ ਸਬਦ ਮਾਤ੍ਰ ਤੇ ਉਧਰ ਧਰੇ ॥ ਕਵਿ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਠਕੁਰ ਹਰਦਾਸ ਤਨੇ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਸਰ ਅਭਰ ਭਰੇ ॥੨॥

Ŧin bẖa▫o nivār anbẖai paḏ ḏīnā sabaḏ maṯar ṯe uḏẖar ḏẖare.  Kav kal▫y ṯẖakur harḏās ṯane gur Rāmḏās sar abẖar bẖare. ||2||

 

Practice of Naam (nivaar-i) removes (tin) their (bhau) fear, and (deena) gives (pad-u) state of (anbhai = fearless-ness) freedom from apprehensions to (tin = them) the seekers – because they do not transgress; they (udhar) saved from the world-ocean of vices and (dharey = placed) landed on far shore by relying (maatr) only (sabad = word) the guru’s teachings.

Says (kav-i/kavee) poet/bard (kalya) Kal Sahaar: O (gur) guru Ramdas (taney) son of Hardaas, you are such a guru who (bharey) fills (abhar) empty (sar) pools, i.e. imparts awareness of Naam to ignorant minds. 2.

 

ਸਤਗੁਰ ਮਤਿ ਗੂੜ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਬਿਮਲ ਸਤਸੰਗਤਿ ਆਤਮੁ ਰੰਗਿ ਚਲੂਲੁ ਭਯਾ ॥ ਜਾਗ੍ਯ੍ਯਾ ਮਨੁ ਕਵਲੁ ਸਹਜਿ ਪਰਕਾਸ੍ਯ੍ਯਾ ਅਭੈ ਨਿਰੰਜਨੁ ਘਰਹਿ ਲਹਾ ॥

Saṯgur maṯ gūṛĥ bimal saṯsangaṯ āṯam rang cẖalūl bẖa▫yā.  Jāg▫yā man kaval sahj parkās▫yā abẖai niranjan gẖarėh lahā.

 

(Mat-i = counsel) guidance of (satgur) the true guru is (goorrh) profound, his (satsangat-i) holy congregation is (bimal) purifying; by joining which (aatam) the soul (bhayaa) becomes of (chalool-u) deep red (rang-i) color, – epitome of love.

(Man) the mind (kaval-u) lotus (jaagya = awakens) blossoms (sahj-i) naturally – all the time, and (lahaa) finds (abhai = without fear) the highest (niranjan-u) pristine Master (gharah-i = in home) within.

ਸਤਗੁਰਿ ਦਯਾਲਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜ੍ਹ੍ਹਾਯਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਵਸਿ ਪੰਚ ਕਰੇ ॥ ਕਵਿ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਠਕੁਰ ਹਰਦਾਸ ਤਨੇ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਸਰ ਅਭਰ ਭਰੇ ॥੩॥

Saṯgur ḏa▫yāl har nām ḏariṛ▫ā▫yā ṯis parsāḏ vas pancẖ kare.  Kav kal▫y ṯẖakur harḏās ṯane gur Rāmḏās sar abẖar bẖare. ||3||

 

(Dayaal-i) the kind (satigur-i) true guru (derirrhaaya) creates firm commitment to Naam of (har-i) the Almighty; (panch) the five vices (karey = made) are brought (vas-i) under control (tis-u = that) the guru’s (prasaad-i) grace/guidance.

Says (kav-i/kavee) poet/bard (kalya) Kal Sahaar: O (gur) guru Ramdas (taney) son of Hardaas, you are such a guru who (bharey) fills (abhar) empty (sar) pools, i.e. imparts awareness of Naam to ignorant minds. 3.

 

ਅਨਭਉ ਉਨਮਾਨਿ ਅਕਲ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਗੀ ਪਾਰਸੁ ਭੇਟਿਆ ਸਹਜ ਘਰੇ ॥ ਸਤਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦਿ ਪਰਮ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਯਾ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਇ ਭੰਡਾਰ ਭਰੇ ॥

Anbẖa▫o unmān akal liv lāgī pāras bẖeti▫ā sahj gẖare.  Saṯgur parsāḏ param paḏ pā▫yā bẖagaṯ bẖā▫e bẖandār bẖare.

 

With (liv) attention (unman-i) the devoted mind (laagee) fixed on Naam, one (unmabhau) perceives (akal) the attribute-less/formless Almighty within; this happens when one (bheeyttiaa) finds (paaras-u = the stone believed to turn base metal to gold) guru – and with his guidance – (gharey = home) the mind becomes (sahj) steadfast – gets rid of other ideas.

One (paayaa) attains this (param) supreme (pad-u) state (parsaad-i) with grace/guidance (satigur-i) of the true guru whose (bhandaar) storehouses are (bharey) full of (bhaaey) loving (bhagat-i) devotion.

                                                                

ਮੇਟਿਆ ਜਨਮਾਂਤੁ ਮਰਣ ਭਉ ਭਾਗਾ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਗਾ ਸੰਤੋਖ ਸਰੇ ॥ ਕਵਿ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਠਕੁਰ ਹਰਦਾਸ ਤਨੇ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਸਰ ਅਭਰ ਭਰੇ ॥੪॥

Meti▫ā janmāʼnṯ maraṇ bẖa▫o bẖāgā cẖiṯ lāgā sanṯokẖ sare.  Kav kal▫y ṯẖakur harḏās ṯane gur Rāmḏās sar abẖar bẖare. ||4||

 

Then (janmaa’nt) taking more births is (meyttiaa = removed) obviated and (bhau) fear of being confronted by Divine justice – (bhaagaa = runs) is dispelled; (chit-u) the mind (laagaa) is engaged on the Almighty, (sarey) the pool/source of (santokh) contentment/peace in life.

Says (kav-i/kavee) poet/bard (kalya) Kal Sahaar: O (gur) guru Ramdas (taney) son of Hardaas, you are such a guru who (bharey) fills (abhar) empty (sar) pools, i.e. imparts awareness of Naam to ignorant minds. 4.

 

ਅਭਰ ਭਰੇ ਪਾਯਉ ਅਪਾਰੁ ਰਿਦ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਧਾਰਿਓ ॥ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਆਤਮ ਪ੍ਰਬੋਧੁ ਮਨਿ ਤਤੁ ਬੀਚਾਰਿਓ ॥ ਸਦਾ ਚਾਇ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਰਸੁ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣਇ ॥ ਸਤਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਪਰਸਾਦਿ ਸਹਜ ਸੇਤੀ ਰੰਗੁ ਮਾਣਇ ॥

Abẖar bẖare pā▫ya▫o apār riḏ anṯar ḏẖāri▫o.   Ḏukẖ bẖanjan āṯam parboḏẖ man ṯaṯ bīcẖāri▫o.   Saḏā cẖā▫e har bẖā▫e parem ras āpe jāṇ▫e. Saṯgur kai parsāḏ sahj seṯī rang māṇ▫e.

 

(Abhar) empty minds (bharey) are filled, i.e. ignorant minds are enlightened with the guru’s guidance, and one (dhaario) keeps (apaar-u) the Infinite (antar-i) in (rid) mind. (Prabodh-u = awareness) realization of the Almighty (bhanjan-u) destroyer of (dukh) grief and (tat-u = essence) God (man-i) in mind achieved by (beechaario = give thought) by contemplating Naam.

One who (sadaa) ever has (bhaaey) loving (chaaey) fondness for (har-i) the Almighty in mind, (aapey) him/her-self (jaanaey) knows (ras-u) the joy of (preym) love for the Almighty.  One (seytee = with, sahj = steadfast-ness) continuously (maaney) enjoys (rang-u) the joy of Divine presence within (prsaad-i) with grace/guidance (kai) of (satgur) the true guru.

 

ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਅੰਗਦ ਸੁਮਤਿ ਗੁਰਿ ਅਮਰਿ ਅਮਰੁ ਵਰਤਾਇਓ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੈਂ ਅਟਲ ਅਮਰ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਇਓ ॥੫॥

Nānak parsāḏ angaḏ sumaṯ gur amar amar varṯā▫i▫o.  Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯaiʼn atal amar paḏ pā▫i▫o. ||5||

 

(Prasaad-i) with grace/guidance of Guru Nanak, Guru Angad received (sumat-i) good counsel and (gur-i) Guru (amar-i) Amardas (vartaaio = distributed) imparted (amar-u = order) awareness of Divine commands; and (tai‘n) you (gur) guru Raamdas (paaio) attained (pad-u) the state/ability of (attal) steadfastly (amar = not dying) overcoming temptations and found the Almighty, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 5.

 

ਸੰਤੋਖ ਸਰੋਵਰਿ ਬਸੈ ਅਮਿਅ ਰਸੁ ਰਸਨ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸੈ ॥ ਮਿਲਤ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਉਪਜੈ ਦੁਰਤੁ ਦੂਰੰਤਰਿ ਨਾਸੈ ॥

Sanṯokẖ sarovar basai ami▫a ras rasan parkāsai.  Milaṯ sāʼnṯ upjai ḏuraṯ ḏūranṯar nāsai.

(Saant-i) peace (upjai = manifests) is experienced (milant) on meeting the guru – and following his example; every (durat-u) wrong-doing (naasai) runs (doorantar-i) far away, i.e. stops forever.

 

ਸੁਖ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਪਾਇਅਉ ਦਿੰਤੁ ਹਰਿ ਮਗਿ ਨ ਹੁਟੈ ॥ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਸਤੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸੀਲ ਸੰਨਾਹੁ ਮਫੁਟੈ ॥

Sukẖ sāgar pā▫i▫a▫o binn har mag na hutai.  Sanjam saṯ sanṯokẖ sīl sannahu mafutai.

 

The Almighty (saagar-u) ocean of (sukh) peace is (paaiau) found (dint-u) given by/with guidance of the guru, one does not (huttai) get tired walikg (mag-i) on the path, i.e. never gives up living by commands of (har-i) the Almighty.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪ੍ਰਮਾਣੁ ਬਿਧ ਨੈ ਸਿਰਿਉ ਜਗਿ ਜਸ ਤੂਰੁ ਬਜਾਇਅਉ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੈ ਅਭੈ ਅਮਰ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਇਅਉ ॥੬॥

Saṯgur parmāṇ biḏẖ nai siri▫o jag jas ṯūr bajā▫i▫a▫o.  Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯai abẖai amar paḏ pā▫i▫a▫o. ||6||

 

(Bidh/bidhaataa) the Creator (sirio) created Guru Ramdas as (pramaan-u) the approved (satigur-u) the true guru; (toor-u = musical instrument) music/songs of his (jas) glory (bajaaiau) play, i.e. Guru Amardas is acknowledged as the true guru, (jag-i) by the world.

(Gur) guru Raamdas, (tai‘n) you (paaio) attained (pad-u) the state/ability (amar = immortality) not to succumb to temptations, and found the Almighty, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 6.

 

ਜਗੁ ਜਿਤਉ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਮਾਣਿ ਮਨਿ ਏਕੁ ਧਿਆਯਉ ॥ ਧਨਿ ਧਨਿ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਅਮਰਦਾਸੁ ਜਿਨਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਯਉ ॥

Jag jiṯa▫o saṯgur parmāṇ man ek ḏẖi▫ā▫ya▫o.   Ḏẖan ḏẖan saṯgur Amarḏās jin nām ḏariṛā▫ya▫o.

 

(Pramaan-i/pramaanit) the certified/truly (satigur) true guru you (dhiaau) pay attention to commands of (eyk) the One Almighty and have (jitau) conquered (jag-u) the world, i.e. overcome temptations.

(Satigur) the true guru Amaras (dhan-i dhan-i) was truly great (jin-i) who (drirraauau) created firm commitment to Naam/Divine virtues and commands in Guru Ramdas, i.e. who made the right choice as his successor guru.

 

ਨਵ ਨਿਧਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਰਿਧਿ ਸਿਧਿ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਦਾਸੀ ॥ ਸਹਜ ਸਰੋਵਰੁ ਮਿਲਿਓ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ॥

Nav niḏẖ nām niḏẖān riḏẖ siḏẖ ṯā kī ḏāsī.   Sahj sarovar mili▫o purakẖ bẖeti▫o abẖināsī.

 

Guru Ramdas has (nav = nine, nidh-i = treasures) all the treasures with (nidhaan-u) the treasure of awareness of Naam; (ridh-i sidh-i) miraculous powers – which people wish to have – are (daasee = maids) at call (ta = that, ki = of) of Guru Ramdas.

You (milio) have found Guru Amardas (sarovar) the pool of (sahaj) naturally living – by Divine commands – and (bheyttio) found (purakh-u) the all-pervasive (abinaasee = imperishable) Eternal Master.

 

ਆਦਿ ਲੇ ਭਗਤ ਜਿਤੁ ਲਗਿ ਤਰੇ ਸੋ ਗੁਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਅਉ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੈ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਪਾਇਅਉ ॥੭॥

Āḏ le bẖagaṯ jiṯ lag ṯare so gur nām ḏariṛā▫i▫a▫o.   Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯai har parem paḏārath pā▫i▫a▫o. ||7||

 

(Gur-i) Guru Amardas (driraaiau) created firm commitment to (so) that Naam, (lag-i) by engaging with (jit-u) which (bhagat-i) devotes (aad-i ley = from beginning) of the past (tarey = swam) crossed the world-ocean of, i.e. overcame temptations.

(Tai‘n) you (gur) guru Raamdas (paaio) attained (padaarath-u = substance) the gift of (preym) love of (har-i) the Almighty, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 7.

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਪਰਵਾਹ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਪੁਬਲੀ ਨ ਹੁਟਇ ॥ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਬਦੁ ਅਥਾਹੁ ਅਮਿਅ ਧਾਰਾ ਰਸੁ ਗੁਟਇ ॥

Parem bẖagaṯ parvāh parīṯ publī na hut▫e.   Saṯgur sabaḏ athāhu ami▫a ḏẖārā ras gut▫e.

 

(Parvaah) the spring of (preym) loving (bhagat-i) devotion and (preet-i) love (publee) from the past does not (huttey = get tired) dry up – is ever fresh.

Guru Ramdas (guttey) heartily drinks (dhaaraa) stream of (amia/amrit) the life-giving (ras-u) elixir of (athaah-u) bottomless/inexhaustible, i.e. ever lives by, (sabad-u) word/teachings of (satigur) the true guru Amardas.

 

ਮਤਿ ਮਾਤਾ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਪਿਤਾ ਸਰਿ ਸਹਜ ਸਮਾਯਉ ॥ ਆਜੋਨੀ ਸੰਭਵਿਅਉ ਜਗਤੁ ਗੁਰ ਬਚਨਿ ਤਰਾਯਉ ॥

Maṯ māṯā sanṯokẖ piṯā sar sahj samā▫ya▫o.   Ājonī sambẖvi▫a▫o jagaṯ gur bacẖan ṯarā▫ya▫o.

 

The guru’s guidance is (mat-i) counsel/guidance of (maataa) the mother and (santokh-u = contentment) sustenance by (pitaa) the father, with which one (samaayau) remains immersed (sar-i) in the pool of (sahj) tranquility.

Compliance (bachan-i = with the word) to teachings of the true guru, the embodiment of (aajonee = without life-form) the Formless (sambhviau) Self-existent Almighty (taraayao) ferries one across the world-ocean, i.e. frees from rebirth.

 

ਅਬਿਗਤ ਅਗੋਚਰੁ ਅਪਰਪਰੁ ਮਨਿ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦੁ ਵਸਾਇਅਉ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੈ ਜਗਤ ਉਧਾਰਣੁ ਪਾਇਅਉ ॥੮॥

Abigaṯ agocẖar aparpar man gur sabaḏ vasā▫i▫a▫o.   Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯai jagaṯ uḏẖāraṇ pā▫i▫a▫o. ||8||

 

The Almighty is (abigat) Formless, (agochar) cannot be perceived by the senses and (aparpar-u = farther and farther) Infinite, but is perceived when (sabad-u) guru’s word/teachings (vasaaio) abide (man-i) in mind.

(Gur) guru Raamdas, (tai’n) you have (paaio) attained the capability to ((udhaaran-u) emancipate (jagat = world) human kind, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 8.

 

ਜਗਤ ਉਧਾਰਣੁ ਨਵ ਨਿਧਾਨੁ ਭਗਤਹ ਭਵ ਤਾਰਣੁ ॥ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਬੂੰਦ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਬਿਸੁ ਕੀ ਬਿਖੈ ਨਿਵਾਰਣੁ ॥

Jagaṯ uḏẖāraṇ nav niḏẖān bẖagṯah bẖav ṯāraṇ.   Amriṯ būnḏ har nām bis kī bikẖai nivāraṇ.

 

(Nav nidhaan-u = nine treasures) the valuable awareness/practice of Naam (udhaaran-u) emancipates (jagat) the world/creatures; it (taaran-u) ferries (bhagtah) the devotees across (bhav) the world-ocean – to God.

(Boond) a drop of (amrit) life-giving elixir/Naam of (har-i) the Almighty (nivaaran) gets rid of (bikhai) poison/vices of (bis/vishv) the universe – all creatures.

 

ਸਹਜ ਤਰੋਵਰ ਫਲਿਓ ਗਿਆਨ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਫਲ ਲਾਗੇ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਪਾਈਅਹਿ ਧੰਨਿ ਤੇ ਜਨ ਬਡਭਾਗੇ ॥

Sahj ṯarovar fali▫o gi▫ān amriṯ fal lāge.   Gur parsāḏ pā▫ī▫ah ḏẖan ṯe jan badbẖāge.

 

The guru is (tarovar) the tree of (sahj) naturally living by Naam, who (phalio) blooms and (laagey = attached) bears (amrit) life-giving (phal) fruits of, i.e. imparts, (giaan) awareness of Naam.

This awareness (paaeeah-i) is obtained (prasaad-i) with grace/guidance of (gur) the guru; (tey) those (jan) persons who find the guru are (dhan-i) blessed and (baddbhaagey) fortunate.

 

ਤੇ ਮੁਕਤੇ ਭਏ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਬਦਿ ਮਨਿ ਗੁਰ ਪਰਚਾ ਪਾਇਅਉ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੈ ਸਬਦ ਨੀਸਾਨੁ ਬਜਾਇਅਉ ॥੯॥

Ŧe mukṯe bẖa▫e saṯgur sabaḏ man gur parcẖā pā▫i▫a▫o.   Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯai sabaḏ nīsān bajā▫i▫a▫o. ||9||

 

(Tey) those who (paaio) obtain (parcha = acquaintance) understanding of teachings of (gur) the guru (man-i) in mind (bhaey) are (muktey) emancipated from rebirth in the world.

(Gur) Guru Raamdas, (tai’n) you (bajaaiau) play (neesaan-u) the drum (sabad-i) of the word, i.e. you are living example of living by Naam, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 9.

ਸੇਜ ਸਧਾ ਸਹਜੁ ਛਾਵਾਣੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸਰਾਇਚਉ ਸਦਾ ਸੀਲ ਸੰਨਾਹੁ ਸੋਹੈ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦਿ ਸਮਾਚਰਿਓ ਨਾਮੁ ਟੇਕ ਸੰਗਾਦਿ ਬੋਹੈ ॥

Sej saḏẖā sahj cẖẖāvāṇ sanṯokẖ sarā▫icẖa▫o saḏā sīl sannahu sohai.   Gur sabaḏ samācẖri▫o nām tek sangāḏ bohai.

 

One should make (sadhaa/shrdhaa) devotion of the mind (seyj) the bed, and spread (chhaavaan) the bedsheet of (sahj-u) steadfstness, make saraaichau = tent) the body (santokh-u = contentment) to happily obey Naam; and have (sa’nnah-u = armor) protection of (seel) good conduct, i.e. freedom from other ideas; such a mind (sohai = looks good) is fit for the Almighty to come in.

This happens (samaachrio) by complying (sabad-i = with word) with instructions of (gur) the guru to take (tteyk) support of Naam; such a person (bohai = provides fragrance) sets an example for (sangaad-i) companions and others.

 

ਅਜੋਨੀਉ ਭਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁ ਅਮਲੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸੰਗਿ ਨਿਵਾਸੁ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ ਤੁਅ ਸਹਜ ਸਰੋਵਰਿ ਬਾਸੁ ॥੧੦॥

Ajonī▫o bẖalyu amal saṯgur sang nivās.   Gur Rāmḏās kal▫yucẖrai ṯu▫a sahj sarovar bās. ||10||

 

(Bhalya) good (amal-u) conduct with (nivaas-u = abode, sang-i = with) company/guidance of (satigur) true guru makes one (ajoneeau = unborn) free of further births.

O Gur Ramdas, (tua) your (baas-u) abode is in such (sarovar-i) a pool of (sahj) tranquility – obedience to the Almighty with mind as above, (kalyuchrai) says Kal Sahaar. 10. 

 

ਗੁਰੁ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਕਉ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਹਰਿ ਰਿਦੈ ਨਿਵਾਸੈ ॥ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਕਉ ਗੁਰੁ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨੁ ਦੁਰਤੁ ਦੂਰੰਤਰਿ ਨਾਸੈ ॥

Gur jinĥ ka▫o suparsan nām har riḏai nivāsai.   Jinĥ ka▫o gur suparsan ḏuraṯ ḏūranṯar nāsai.

 

Those (kau) to (jnh) whom the guru is (suprasa’nn-u) well pleased – to guide – Naam/ virtues and commands of (har-i) the Almighty (nivaasai) abide in their (ridai) minds – they live in obedience to Naam.

Those (kau) to (jnh) whom the guru is (suprasa’nn-u) well pleased – to guide – every (durat-u) fault/shortcoming of theirs (naasai) runs (doorantar-i) to far away, i.e. they keep away from transgressions.

 

ਗੁਰੁ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਕਉ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨੁ ਮਾਨੁ ਅਭਿਮਾਨੁ ਨਿਵਾਰੈ ॥ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਕਉ ਗੁਰੁ ਸੁਪ੍ਰਸੰਨੁ ਸਬਦਿ ਲਗਿ ਭਵਜਲੁ ਤਾਰੈ ॥

ਪਰਚਉ ਪ੍ਰਮਾਣੁ ਗੁਰ ਪਾਇਅਉ ਤਿਨ ਸਕਯਥਉ ਜਨਮੁ ਜਗਿ ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਰਣਿ ਭਜੁ ਕਲ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਕਬਿ ਭੁਗਤਿ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਸਭ ਗੁਰੂ ਲਗਿ ॥੧੧॥

Those who (paaiau) find, and (parchay) become aware of/comply with teachings of, (pramaan-u = approved) the true guru, their (janam-u) human birth (jag-i) in the world (sakyathau) is fruitful – they unite with the Creator.

ਗੁਰੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਅੰਗਦੁ ਅਮਰੁ ਭਗਤ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਮਾਣੇ ॥ ਇਹੁ ਰਾਜ ਜੋਗ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਤੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਹੂ ਰਸੁ ਜਾਣੇ ॥੧੨॥

Gur Nānak angaḏ amar bẖagaṯ har sang samāṇe.   Ih rāj jog gur Rāmḏās ṯumĥ hū ras jāṇe. ||12||

 

Guru Nanak, Angad and (amar) Amardas and all (bhagat) devotes (samaaney) remain absorbed (sang-i) in (har-i) the Almighty.

(Tumh hoo) you (jaaney) knew (ras-u) the pleasure of (raaj) the royal method – living righteously as house-holder – to attain (jog) union with the Almighty,. 12.

 

ਜਨਕੁ ਸੋਇ ਜਿਨਿ ਜਾਣਿਆ ਉਨਮਨਿ ਰਥੁ ਧਰਿਆ ॥ ਸਤੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸਮਾਚਰੇ ਅਭਰਾ ਸਰੁ ਭਰਿਆ ॥

(Janak-u) a learned person is (soey = that) one (jin-i) who (jaaniaa) knows virtues and commands of the Almighty; s/he (dhariaa) places the self on (rath-u) the chariot of obedience to (unman-i) the un-manifest Almighty, i.e. conducts the self by Divine commandments.

S/he (samaachrey) practices (sat-u) truthful living and (santokh-u = contentment) happy acceptance of Divine will; s/he (bhariaa) fills (abhraa) the empty (sar-u) pool, i.e. brings craving under control and remains contented.

 

ਅਕਥ ਕਥਾ ਅਮਰਾ ਪੁਰੀ ਜਿਸੁ ਦੇਇ ਸੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥ ਇਹੁ ਜਨਕ ਰਾਜੁ ਗੁਰ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਤੁਝ ਹੀ ਬਣਿ ਆਵੈ ॥੧੩॥

Akath kathā amrā purī jis ḏe▫e so pāvai.   Ih janak rāj gur Rāmḏās ṯujẖ hī baṇ āvai. ||13||

 

(Puree) the town/state of (amraa = undying) being unaffected by temptations is (kathaa) a story (akath) beyond description; (s-u) that person (paavai) attains this state (jis-u) whom the Almighty (dey-i) gives.

(Eyh-u) this (raaj-u) kingdom of (janak) awareness, i.e. living by Naam, (ban-i aavai) befits (hi) only (tujh) you, o Guru Ramdas. 13.
