O Nanak, search and examine your own home, and you shall find the Supreme Soul, and the Name of the Lord. || 5 || The
Primal Lord is everywhere, immaculate and all-knowing. He administers justice, and is absorbed in the spiritual wisdom of the
Guru. He seizes sexual desire and anger by their necks, and kills them; He eradicates egotism and greed. || 6 || In the True
Place, the Formless Lord abides. Whoever understands his own self, contemplates the Word of the Shabad. He comes to abide
deep within the True Mansion of His Presence, and his comings and goings are ended. || 7 || His mind does not waver, and
he is not buffeted by the winds of desire. Such a Yogi vibrates the unstruck sound current of the Shabad. God Himself plays
the pure music of the Panch Shabad, the five primal sounds to hear. || 8 || In the Fear of God, in detachment, one intuitively
merges into the Lord. Renouncing egotism, he is imbued with the unstruck sound current. With the ointment of enlightenment,
the Immaculate Lord is known; the Immaculate Lord King is pervading everywhere. || 9 || God is eternal and imperishable;
He is the Destroyer of pain and fear. He cures the disease, and cuts away the noose of death. O Nanak, the Lord God is the
Destroyer of fear; meeting the Guru, the Lord God is found. || 10 || One who knows the Immaculate Lord chews up death.
One who understands karma, realizes the Word of the Shabad. He Himself knows, and He Himself realizes. This whole world is
all His play. || 11 || He Himself is the Banker, and He Himself is the Merchant. The Appraiser Himself appraises. He Himself
tests upon His Touchstone, and He Himself estimates the value. || 12 || God Himself, the Merciful Lord, grants His Grace.
The Gardener pervades and permeates each and every heart. The pure, primal, detached Lord abides within all. The Guru, the
Lord Incarnate, leads us to meet the Lord God. || 13 || God is wise and all-knowing; He purges men of their pride.
Eradicating duality, the One Lord reveals Himself. Such a being remains unattached amidst hope, singing the Praise of the
Immaculate Lord, who has no ancestry. || 14 || Eradicating egotism, he obtains the peace of the Shabad. He alone is
spiritually wise, who contemplates his own self. O Nanak, singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, the true profit is obtained; in
the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, the fruit of Truth is obtained. || 15 || 2 || 19 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: Speak the
Truth, and remain in the home of Truth. Remain dead while yet alive, and cross over the terrifying world-ocean. The Guru is
the boat, the ship, the raft; meditating on the Lord in your mind, you shall be carried across to the other side. || 1 ||
Eliminating egotism, possessiveness and greed, one is liberated from the nine gates, and obtains a place in the Tenth Gate.
Lofty and high, the farthest of the far and infinite, He created Himself. || 2 || Receiving the Gurus Teachings, and lovingly
attuned to the Lord, one crosses over. Singing the Praises of the absolute Lord, why should anyone be afraid of death?
Wherever I look, I see only You; I do not sing of any other at all. || 3 || True is the Lords Name, and True is His Sanctuary.
True is the Word of the Gurus Shabad, grasping it, one is carries across. Speaking the Unspoken, one sees the Infinite Lord,
and then, he does not have to enter the womb of reincarnation again. || 4 || Without the Truth, no one finds sincerity or
contentment. Without the Guru, no one is liberated; coming and going in reincarnation continue. Chanting the Mool Mantra,
and the Name of the Lord, the source of nectar, says Nanak, I have found the Perfect Lord.
|| 5 || Without the Truth, the terrifying world-ocean cannot be crossed. This ocean is vast and unfathomable; it is overflowing
with the worst poison. One who receives the Gurus Teachings, and remains aloof and detached, obtains a place in the home
of the Fearless Lord. || 6 || False is the cleverness of loving attachment to the world. In no time at all, it comes and goes.
Forgetting the Naam, the Name of the Lord, the proud egotistical people depart; in creation and destruction they are wasted
away. || 7 || In creation and destruction, they are bound in bondage. The noose of egotism and Maya is around their necks.
Whoever does not accept the Gurus Teachings, and does not dwell upon the Lords Name, is bound and bagged, and dragged
into the City of Death. || 8 || Without the Guru, how can anyone be emancipated or liberated? Without the Guru, how can
anyone meditate on the Lords Name? Accepting the Gurus Teachings, cross over the arduous, terrifying world-ocean; you
shall be emancipated, and find peace. || 9 || Through the Gurus Teachings, Krishna lifted up the mountain of Govardhan.
Through the Gurus Teachings, Rama floated stones across the ocean. Accepting the Gurus Teachings, the supreme status is
obtained; O Nanak, the Guru eradicates doubt. || 10 || Accepting the Gurus Teachings, cross over to the other side through
Truth. O soul, remember the Lord within your heart. The noose of death is cut away, meditating on the Lord; you shall obtain
the Immaculate Lord, who has no ancestry. || 11 || Through the Gurus Teachings, the Holy become ones friends and
Siblings of Destiny. Through the Gurus Teachings, the inner fire is subdued and extinguished. Chant the Naam with your mind
and mouth; know the unknowable Lord, the Life of the World, deep within the nucleus of your heart. || 12 || The Gurmukh
understands, and is pleased with the Word of the Shabad. Who does he praise or slander? Know yourself, and meditate on the
Lord of the Universe; let your mind be pleased with the Lord, the Master of the Universe. || 13 || Know the One who
pervades all the realms of the universe. As Gurmukh, understand and realize the Shabad. The Enjoyer enjoys each and every
heart, and yet He remains detached from all. || 14 || Through the Gurus Teachings, chant the Pure Praises of the Lord.
Through the Gurus Teachings, behold the lofty Lord with your eyes. Whoever listens to the Lords Name, and the Word of His
Bani, O Nanak, is imbued with the color of the Lords Love. || 15 || 3 || 20 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: Leave behind sexual
desire, anger and the slander of others. Renounce greed and possessiveness, and become carefree. Break the chains of doubt,
and remain unattached; you shall find the Lord, and the Lords sublime essence, deep within yourself. || 1 || As one sees the
flash of lightning in the night, see the Divine Light deep within your nucleus, day and night. The Lord, the embodiment of bliss,
incomparably beautiful, reveals the Perfect Guru. || 2 || So meet with the True Guru, and God Himself will save you. He
placed the lamps of the sun and the moon in the home of the sky. See the invisible Lord, and remain absorbed in loving
devotion. God is all throughout the three worlds. || 3 || Obtaining the sublime ambrosial essence, desire and fear are
dispelled. The state of inspired illumination is obtained, and self-conceit is eradicated. The lofty and exalted state, the highest
of the high is obtained, practicing the immaculate Word of the Shabad. || 4 || The Naam, the Name of the invisible and
unfathomable Lord, is infinite.
The sublime essence of the Beloved Naam is utterly sweet. O Lord, please bless Nanak with Your Praise in each and every age;
meditating on the Lord, I cannot find His limits. || 5 || With the Naam deep within the nucleus of the self, the jewel is
obtained. Meditating on the Lord, the mind is comforted and consoled by the mind itself. On that most difficult path, the
Destroyer of fear is found, and one does not have to enter the womb of reincarnation again. || 6 || Through the Word of the
Gurus Shabad, inspiration for loving devotional worship wells up. I beg for the treasure of the Naam, and the Lords Praise.
When it pleases the Lord, He unites me in Union with the Guru; the Lord saves the whole world. || 7 || One who chants the
Lords Chant, attains the Wisdom of the True Guru. The tyrant, the Messenger of Death, becomes a servant at his feet. In the
noble congregation of the Sangat, ones state and way of life become noble as well, and one crosses over the terrifying world-
ocean. || 8 || Through the Shabad, one crosses over this terrifying world-ocean. The duality within is burnt away from
within. Taking up the five arrows of virtue, Death is killed, drawing the Bow of the Tenth Gate in the Minds Sky. || 9 || How
can the faithless cynics attain enlightened awareness of the Shabad? Without awareness of the Shabad, they come and go in
reincarnation. O Nanak, the Gurmukh obtains the support of liberation; by perfect destiny, he meets the Lord. || 10 || The
Fearless True Guru is our Savior and Protector. Devotional worship is obtained through the Guru, the Lord of the world. The
blissful music of the unstruck sound current vibrates and resounds; through the Word of the Gurus Shabad, the Immaculate
Lord is obtained. || 11 || He alone is fearless, who has no destiny written on His head. God Himself is unseen; He reveals
Himself through His wondrous creative power. He Himself is unattached, unborn and self-existent. O Nanak, through the
Gurus Teachings, He is found. || 12 || The True Guru knows the state of ones inner being. He alone is fearless, who
realizes the Word of the Gurus Shabad. He looks within his own inner being, and realizes the Lord within all; his mind does not
waver at all. || 13 || He alone is fearless, within whose being the Lord abides. Day and night, he is delighted with the
Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord. O Nanak, in the Sangat, the Holy Congregation, the Lords Praise is obtained, and
one easily, intuitively meets the Lord. || 14 || One who knows God, within the self and beyond, remains detached, and
brings his wandering mind back to its home. The True Primal Lord is over all the three worlds; O Nanak, His Ambrosial Nectar
is obtained. || 15 || 4 || 21 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: The Creator Lord is infinite; His creative power is wondrous. Created
beings have no power over Him. He formed the living beings, and He Himself sustains them; the Hukam of His Command
controls each and every one. || 1 || The all-pervading Lord orchestrates all through His Hukam. Who is near, and who is far
away? Behold the Lord, both hidden and manifest, in each and every heart; the unique Lord is permeating all. || 2 || One
whom the Lord unites with Himself, merges in conscious awareness. Through the Word of the Gurus Shabad, meditate on the
Lords Name. God is the embodiment of bliss, incomparably beautiful and unfathomable; meeting with the Guru, doubt is
dispelled. || 3 || The Naam, the Name of the Lord, is more dear to me than my mind, body and wealth. In the end, when I
must depart, it shall be my only help and support.
In this world of love and attachment, no one is anyone elses friend or companion; without the Lord, without the Guru, who
has ever found peace? || 4 || He, unto whom the Perfect Guru grants His Grace, is merged in the Word of the Shabad,
through the Teachings of the brave, heroic Guru. O Nanak, dwell upon, and serve at the Gurus feet; He places those who
wander back on the Path. || 5 || The wealth of the Lords Praise is very dear to the humble Saints. Through the Gurus
Teachings, I have obtained Your Name, Lord. The beggar serves at the Lords door, and in the Court of the Lord, sings His
Praises. || 6 || When one meets the True Guru, he is called into the Mansion of the Lords Presence. In the True Court, he is
blessed with salvation and honor. The faithless cynic has no place of rest in the Lords palace; he suffers the pains of birth and
death. || 7 || So serve the True Guru, the unfathomable ocean, and you shall obtain the profit, the wealth, the jewel of the
Naam. The filth of corruption is washed away, by bathing in the pool of Ambrosial Nectar. In the Gurus pool, contentment is
obtained. || 8 || So serve the Guru without hesitation. And in the midst of hope, remain unmoved by hope. Serve the
Eradicator of cynicism and suffering, and you shall never again be afflicted by the disease. || 9 || One who is pleasing to the
True Lord is blessed with glorious greatness. Who else can teach him anything? The Lord and the Guru are pervading in one
form. O Nanak, the Lord loves the Guru. || 10 || Some read scriptures, the Vedas and the Puraanas. Some sit and listen, and
read to others. Tell me, how can the heavy, rigid doors be opened? Without the True Guru, the essence of reality is not
realized. || 11 || Some collect dust, and smear their bodies with ashes; but deep within them are the outcasts of anger and
egotism. Practicing hypocrisy, Yoga is not obtained; without the True Guru, the unseen Lord is not found. || 12 || Some
make vows to visit sacred shrines of pilgrimage, keep fasts and live in the forest. Some practice chastity, charity and self-
discipline, and speak of spiritual wisdom. But without the Lords Name, how can anyone find peace? Without the True Guru,
doubt is not dispelled. || 13 || Inner cleansing techniques, channeling the energy to raise the Kundalini to the Tenth Gate,
inhaling, exhaling and holding the breath by the force of the mind by empty hypocritical practices, Dharmic love for the Lord
is not produced. Only through the Word of the Gurus Shabad is the sublime, supreme essence obtained. || 14 || Seeing the
Lords creative power, my mind remains satisfied. Through the Gurus Shabad, I have realized that all is God. O Nanak, the
Lord, the Supreme Soul, is in all. The Guru, the True Guru, has inspired me to see the unseen Lord. || 15 || 5 || 22 ||
MARU, SOLHAY, THIRD MEHL:
RACE OF THE
By the Hukam of His Command, He effortlessly created the Universe. Creating the creation, He gazes upon His own greatness.
He Himself acts, and inspires all to act; in His Will, He pervades and permeates all. || 1 || The world is in the darkness of
love and attachment to Maya. How rare is that Gurmukh who contemplates, and understands.
He alone attains the Lord, unto whom He grants His Grace. He Himself unites in His Union. || 2 || Uniting with Himself, He
bestows glorious greatness. By Gurus Grace, one comes to know the Lords worth. The self-willed manmukh wanders
everywhere, weeping and wailing; he is utterly ruined by the love of duality. || 3 || Egotism was instilled into the illusion of
Maya. The self-willed manmukh is deluded, and loses his honor. But one who becomes Gurmukh is absorbed in the Name; he
remains immersed in the True Lord. || 4 || Spiritual wisdom is obtained from the Guru, along with the jewel of the Naam, the
Name of the Lord. Desires are subdued, and one remains immersed in the mind. The Creator Himself stages all His plays; He
Himself bestows understanding. || 5 || One who serves the True Guru eradicates self-conceit. Meeting with his Beloved, he
finds peace through the Word of the Shabad. Deep within his inner being, he is imbued with loving devotion; intuitively, he
becomes one with the Lord. || 6 || The Destroyer of pain is known through the Guru. The Great Giver, the Life of the world,
Himself has met me. He alone understands, whom the Lord joins with Himself. Fear and doubt are taken away from his body.
|| 7 || He Himself is the Gurmukh, and He Himself bestows His blessings. Through the True Word of the Shabad, serve the
True Guru. Old age and death cannot even touch one who is in harmony with the True Lord. || 8 || The world is burning up
in the fire of desire. It burns and burns, and is destroyed in all its corruption. The self-willed manmukh finds no place of rest
anywhere. The True Guru has imparted this understanding. || 9 || Those who serve the True Guru are very fortunate. They
remain lovingly focused on the True Name forever. The Immaculate Naam, the Name of the Lord, permeates the nucleus of
their inner being; through the Shabad, their desires are quenched. || 10 || True is the Word of the Shabad, and True is the
Bani of His Word. How rare is that Gurmukh who realizes this. Those who are imbued with the True Shabad are detached.
Their comings and goings in reincarnation are ended. || 11 || One who realizes the Shabad is cleansed of impurities. The
Immaculate Naam abides within his mind. He serves his True Guru forever, and egotism is eradicated from within. || 12 || If
one comes to understand, through the Guru, then he comes to know the Lords Door. But without the Naam, one babbles and
argues in vain. The glory of serving the True Guru is that it eradicates hunger and thirst. || 13 || When the Lord unites them
with Himself, then they come to understand. Without spiritual wisdom, they understand nothing at all. One whose mind is filled
with the Gurus gift forever his inner being resounds with the Shabad, and the Word of the Gurus Bani. || 14 || He acts
according to his pre-ordained destiny. No one can erase the Command of the Primal Lord. They alone dwell in the Sat Sangat,
the True Congregation, who have such pre-ordained destiny. || 15 || He alone finds the Lord, unto whom He grants His
Grace. He links his consciousness to the deep meditative state of the True Shabad. Nanak, Your slave, offers this humble
prayer; I stand at Your Door, begging for Your Name. || 16 || 1 || MARU, THIRD MEHL: The One and only Lord is
pervading and permeating everywhere. How rare is that person, who as Gurmukh, understands this. The One Lord is
permeating and pervading, deep within the nucleus of all. Without Him, there is no other at all. || 1 || He created the 8.4
millions species of beings.
The spiritual teachers and meditators proclaim this. He Himself nourishes all; no one else can estimate His value. || 2 || Love
and attachment to Maya are utter darkness. Egotism and possessiveness have spread throughout the expanse of the universe.
Night and day, they burn, day and night; without the Guru, there is no peace or tranquility. || 3 || He Himself unites, and He
Himself separates. He Himself establishes, and He Himself disestablishes. True is the Hukam of His Command, and True is the
expanse of His universe. No one else can issue any Command. || 4 || He alone is attached to the Lord, whom the Lord
attaches to Himself. By Gurus Grace, the fear of death runs away. The Shabad, the Giver of peace, dwells forever deep within
the nucleus of the self. One who is Gurmukh understands. || 5 || God Himself unites those united in His Union. Whatever is
pre-ordained by destiny, cannot be erased. Night and day, His devotees worship Him, day and night; one who becomes
Gurmukh serves Him. || 6 || Serving the True Guru, lasting peace is experienced. He Himself, the Giver of all, has come and
met me. Subduing egotism, the fire of thirst has been extinguished; contemplating the Word of the Shabad, peace is found. ||
7 || One who is attached to his body and family, does not understand. But one who becomes Gurmukh, sees the Lord with
his eyes. Night and day, he chants the Naam, day and night; meeting with his Beloved, he finds peace. || 8 || The self-willed
manmukh wanders distracted, attached to duality. That unfortunate wretch why didnt he just die as soon as he was born?
Coming and going, he wastes away his life in vain. Without the Guru, liberation is not obtained. || 9 || That body which is
stained with the filth of egotism is false and impure. It may be washed a hundred times, but its filth is still not removed. But if
it is washed with the Word of the Shabad, then it is truly cleansed, and it shall never be soiled again. || 10 || The five
demons destroy the body. He dies and dies again, only to be reincarnated; he does not contemplate the Shabad. The darkness
of emotional attachment to Maya is within his inner being; as if in a dream, he does not understand. || 11 || Some conquer
the five demons, by being attached to the Shabad. They are blessed and very fortunate; the True Guru comes to meet them.
Within the nucleus of their inner being, they dwell upon the Truth; attuned to the Lords Love, they intuitively merge in Him.
|| 12 || The Gurus Way is known through the Guru. His perfect servant attains realization through the Shabad. Deep within
his heart, he dwells forever upon the Shabad; he tastes the sublime essence of the True Lord with his tongue. || 13 ||
Egotism is conquered and subdued by the Shabad. I have enshrined the Name of the Lord within my heart. Other than the
One Lord, I know nothing at all. Whatever will be, will automatically be. || 14 || Without the True Guru, no one obtains
intuitive wisdom. The Gurmukh understands, and is immersed in the True Lord. He serves the True Lord, and is attuned to the
True Shabad. The Shabad banishes egotism. || 15 || He Himself is the Giver of virtue, the Contemplative Lord. The Gurmukh
is given the winning dice. O Nanak, immersed in the Naam, the Name of the Lord, one becomes true; from the True Lord,
honor is obtained. || 16 || 2 || MARU, THIRD MEHL: One One True Lord is the Life of the World, the Great Giver.
Serving the Guru, through the Word of the Shabad, He is realized. There is only One Command, and there is only One
Supreme King. In each and every age, He links each to their tasks. || 1 || That humble being is immaculate, who knows his
own self. The Lord, the Giver of peace, Himself comes and meets him. His tongue is imbued with the Shabad, and he sings the
Glorious Praises of the Lord; he is honored in the Court of the True Lord. || 2 || The Gurmukh is blessed with the glorious
greatness of the Naam. The self-willed manmukh, the slanderer, loses his honor. Attuned to the Naam, the supreme soul-
swans remain detached; in the home of the self, they remain absorbed in deep meditative trance. || 3 || That humble being
who dies in the Shabad is perfect. The brave, heroic True Guru chants and proclaims this. Deep within the body is the true
pool of Ambrosial Nectar; the mind drinks it in with loving devotion. || 4 || The Pandit, the religious scholar, reads and
instructs others, but he does not realize that his own home is on fire. Without serving the True Guru, the Naam is not obtained.
You can read until you are exhausted, but you shall not find peace and tranquility. || 5 || Some smear their bodies with
ashes, and wander around in religious disguises. Without the Word of the Shabad, who has ever subdued egotism? Night and
day, they continue burning, day and night; they are deluded and confused by their doubt and religious costumes. || 6 ||
Some, in the midst of their household and family, remain always unattached. They die in the Shabad, and dwell in the Lords
Name. Night and day, they remain forever attuned to His Love; they focus their consciousness on loving devotion and the Fear
of God. || 7 || The self-willed manmukh indulges in slander, and is ruined. The dog of greed barks within him. The
Messenger of Death never leaves him, and in the end, he leaves, regretting and repenting. || 8 || Through the True Word of
the Shabad, true honor is obtained. Without the Name, no one attains liberation. Without the True Guru, no one finds the
Name. Such is the making which God has made. || 9 || Some are Siddhas and seekers, and great contemplators. Some
remain imbued with the Naam, the Name of the Formless Lord, day and night. He alone understands, whom the Lord unites
with Himself; through loving devotional worship, fear is dispelled. || 10 || Some take cleansing baths and give donations to
charities, but they do not understand. Some struggle with their minds, and conquer and subdue their minds. Some are imbued
with love for the True Word of the Shabad; they merge with the True Shabad. || 11 || He Himself creates and bestows
glorious greatness. By the Pleasure of His Will, He bestows union. Bestowing His Grace, He comes to dwell in the mind; such is
the Command ordained by my God. || 12 || Those humble beings who serve the True Guru are true. The false, self-willed
manmukhs do not know how to serve the Guru. The Creator Himself creates the creation and watches over it; he attaches all
according to the Pleasure of His Will. || 13 || In each and every age, the True Lord is the one and only Giver. Through
perfect destiny, one realizes the Word of the Gurus Shabad. Those who are immersed in the Shabad are not separated again.
By His Grace, they are intuitively immersed in the Lord. || 14 || Acting in egotism, they are stained with the filth of Maya.
They die and die again, only to be reborn in the love of duality. Without serving the True Guru, no one finds liberation. O mind,
tune into this, and see. || 15 ||
He does whatever He pleases. No one has done, or can do anything by himself. O Nanak, through the Name, one is blessed
with glorious greatness, and obtains honor in the Court of the True Lord. || 16 || 3 || MARU, THIRD MEHL: All who come
shall have to depart. In the love of duality, they are caught by the noose of the Messenger of Death. Those humble beings who
are protected by the True Guru, are saved. They merge into the Truest of the True. || 1 || The Creator Himself creates the
creation, and watches over it. Thay alone are acceptable, upon whom He bestows His Glance of Grace. The Gurmukh attains
spiritual wisdom, and understands everything. The ignorant ones act blindly. || 2 || The self-willed manmukh is cynical; he
doesnt understand. He dies and dies again, only to be reborn, and loses his life uselessly again. The Gurmukh is imbued with
the Naam, the Name of the Lord; he find peace, and is intuitively immersed in the True Lord. || 3 || Chasing after worldly
affairs, the mind has become corroded and rusty. But meeting with the Perfect Guru, it is transmuted into gold once again.
When the Lord Himself grants forgiveness, then peace is obtained; through the Perfect Word of the Shabad, one is united with
Him. || 4 || The false and evil-minded are the most wicked of the wicked. They are the most unworthy of the unworthy. With
false intellect, and insipid words of mouth, evil-minded, they do not obtain the Naam. || 5 || The unworthy soul-bride is not
pleasing to her Husband Lord. False-minded, her actions are false. The foolish person does not know the excellence of her
Husband Lord. Without the Guru, she does not understand at all. || 6 || The evil-minded, wicked soul-bride practices
wickedness. She decorates herself, but her Husband Lord is not pleased. The virtuous soul-bride enjoys and ravishes her
Husband Lord forever; the True Guru unites her in His Union. || 7 || God Himself issues the Hukam of His Command, and
beholds all. Some are forgiven, according to their pre-ordained destiny. Night and day, they are imbued with the Naam, and
they find the True Lord. He Himself unites them in His Union. || 8 || Egotism attaches them to the juice of emotional
attachment, and makes them run around. The Gurmukh is intuitively immersed in the True Love of the Lord. He Himself unites,
He Himself acts, and beholds. Without the True Guru, understanding is not obtained. || 9 || Some contemplate the Word of
the Shabad; these humble beings remain always awake and aware. Some are attached to the love of Maya; these unfortunate
ones remain asleep. He Himself acts, and inspires all to act; no one else can do anything. || 10 || Through the Word of the
Gurus Shabad, death is conquered and killed. Keep the Name of the Lord enshrined within your heart. Serving the True Guru,
peace is obtained, and one merges in the Name of the Lord. || 11 || In the love of duality, the world wanders around insane.
Immersed in love and attachment to Maya, it suffers in pain. Wearing all sorts of religious robes, He is not obtained. Without
the True Guru, peace is not found. || 12 || Who is to blame, when He Himself does everything? As He wills, so is the path
we take. He Himself is the Merciful Giver of peace; as He wills, so do we follow. || 13 || He Himself is the Creator, and He
Himself is the Enjoyer. He Himself is detached, and He Himself is attached. He Himself is immaculate, compassionate, the lover
of nectar; the Hukam of His Command cannot be erased. || 14 || Those who know the One Lord are very fortunate.
He dwells in each and every heart, the Great Giver, the Life of the world. At the same time, He is both hidden and revealed.
For the Gurmukh, doubt and fear are dispelled. || 15 || The Gurmukh knows the One, the Dear Lord. Deep within the
nucleus of his inner being, is the Naam, the Name of the Lord; he realizes the Word of the Shabad. He alone receives it, unto
whom You give it. O Nanak, the Naam is glorious greatness. || 16 || 4 || MARU, THIRD MEHL: I praise the true, profound
and unfathomable Lord. All the world is in His power. He enjoys all hearts forever, day and night; He Himself dwells in peace.
|| 1 || True is the Lord and Master, and True is His Name. By Gurus Grace, I enshrine Him in my mind. He Himself has come
to dwell deep within the nucleus of my heart; the noose of death has been snapped. || 2 || Whom should I serve, and whom
should I praise? I serve the True Guru, and praise the Word of the Shabad. Through the True Shabad, the intellect is exalted
and ennobled forever, and the lotus deep within blossoms forth. || 3 || The body is frail and perishable, like paper. When the
drop of water falls upon it, it crumbles and dissolves instantaneously. But the body of the Gurmukh, who understands, is like
gold; the Naam, the Name of the Lord, dwells deep within. || 4 || Pure is that kitchen, which is enclosed by spiritual
awareness. The Lords Name is my food, and Truth is my support. Forever satisfied, sanctified and pure is that person, within
whose heart the Lords Name abides. || 5 || I am a sacrifice to those who are attached to the Truth. They sing the Glorious
Praises of the Lord, and remain awake and aware night and day. True peace fills them forever, and their tongues savor the
sublime essence of the Lord. || 6 || I remember the Lords Name, and no other at all. I serve the One Lord, and no other at
all. The Perfect Guru has revealed the whole Truth to me; I dwell in the True Name. || 7 || Wandering, wandering in
reincarnation, again and again, he comes into the world. He is deluded and confused, when the Lord and Master confuses him.
He meets with the Dear Lord, when, as Gurmukh, he understands; he remembers the Shabad, the Word of the immortal,
eternal Lord God. || 8 || I am a sinner, overflowing with sexual desire and anger. With what mouth should I speak? I have
no virtue, and I have rendered no service. I am a sinking stone; please, Lord, unite me with Yourself. Your Name is eternal and
imperishable. || 9 || No one does anything; no one is able to do anything. That alone happens, which the Lord Himself does,
and causes to be done. Those whom He Himself forgives, find peace; they dwell forever in the Naam, the Name of the Lord.
|| 10 || This body is the earth, and the infinite Shabad is the seed. Deal and trade with the True Name alone. The True
wealth increases; it is never exhausted, when the Naam dwells deep within. || 11 || O Dear Lord, please bless me, the
worthless sinner, with virtue. Forgive me, and bless me with Your Name. One who becomes Gurmukh, is honored; he dwells in
the Name of the One Lord alone. || 12 || The wealth of the Lord is deep within ones inner being, but he does not realize it.
By Gurus Grace, one comes to understand. One who becomes Gurmukh is blessed with this wealth; he lives forever in the
Naam. || 13 || Fire and wind lead him into delusions of doubt.
In love and attachment to Maya, he has no understanding at all. The blind, self-willed manmukh sees nothing; through the
Gurus Teachings, the Naam is gloriously revealed. || 14 || The manmukhs are asleep in egotism and Maya. They do not
watch over their own homes, and are ruined in the end. They slander others, and burn in great anxiety; they dwell in pain and
suffering. || 15 || The Creator Himself has created the creation. He blesses the Gurmukh with understanding. O Nanak,
those who are attuned to the Naam their minds become immaculate; they dwell in the Naam, and only the Naam. || 16 || 5
|| MARU, THIRD MEHL: I serve the One Lord, who is eternal, stable and True. Attached to duality, the whole world is false.
Following the Gurus Teachings, I praise the True Lord forever, pleased with the Truest of the True. || 1 || Your Glorious
Virtues are so many, Lord; I do not know even one. The Life of the world, the Great Giver, attaches us to himself. He Himself
forgives, and bestows glorious greatness. Following the Gurus Teachings, this mind is delighted. || 2 || The Word of the
Shabad has subdued the waves of Maya. Egotism has been conquered, and this mind has become immaculate. I intuitively
sing His Glorious Praises, imbued with the Lords Love. My tongue chants and savors the Lords Name. || 3 || Crying out,
Mine, mine! he spends his life. The self-willed manmukh does not understand; he wanders around in ignorance. The
Messenger of Death watches over him every moment, every instant; night and day, his life is wasting away. || 4 || He
practices greed within, and does not understand. He does not see the Messenger of Death hovering over his head. Whatever
one does in this world, will come to face him in the hereafter; what can he do at that very last moment? || 5 || Those who
are attached to the Truth are true. The self-willed manmukhs, attached to duality, weep and wail. He is the Lord and Master of
both worlds; He Himself delights in virtue. || 6 || Through the Word of the Gurus Shabad, His humble servant is exalted
forever. This mind is enticed by the Naam, the source of nectar. It is not stained at all by the dirt of attachment to Maya;
through the Gurus Teachings, it is pleased and saturated with the Lords Name. || 7 || The One Lord is contained within all.
By Gurus Grace, He is revealed. One who subdues his ego, finds lasting peace; he drinks in the Ambrosial Nectar of the True
Name. || 8 || God is the Destroyer of sin and pain. The Gurmukh serves Him, and contemplates the Word of the Shabad. He
Himself is pervading everything. The Gurmukhs body and mind are saturated and pleased. || 9 || The world is burning in
the fire of Maya. The Gurmukh extinguishes this fire, by contemplating the Shabad. Deep within are peace and tranquility, and
lasting peace is obtained. Following the Gurus Teachings, one is blessed with the Naam, the Name of the Lord. || 10 || Even
Indra, seated upon his throne, is caught in the fear of death. The Messenger of Death will not spare them, even though they
try all sorts of things. When one meets with the True Guru, one is liberated, drinking in and savoring the sublime essence of
the Lord, Har, Har. || 11 || There is no devotion within the self-willed manmukh. Through devotional worship, the Gurmukh
obtains peace and tranquility. Forever pure and sanctified is the Word of the Gurus Bani; following the Gurus Teachings,
ones inner being is drenched in it. || 12 || I have considered Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
