Creator: Guru Arjan Dev Ji
Hukamnama: Paath Padheo Ar Bed Beechaareo Nival Bhuangam Saadhhe
Sorath Mahalaa 5 Ghar 2 Asattpadeeaa
Ik Oankaar Satgur Parsaad ||
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
Paath Padheo Ar Bed Beechaareo Nival Bhuangam Saadhhe || Panch Janaa Siu Sang N Shhuttkeo Adhhik Ahanbudhh Baadhhe ||1||
They read scriptures, and contemplate the Vedas; they practice the inner cleansing techniques of Yoga, and control of the breath. But they cannot escape from the company of the five passions; they are increasingly bound to egotism.
Piaare In Bidhh Milan N Jaaee Mai Kee_ey Karam Anekaa || Haar Pareo Suaamee Kai Duaarai Deejai Budhh Bibekaa || Rahaau ||
O Beloved, this is not the way to meet the Lord; I have performed these rituals so many times. I have collapsed, exhausted, at the Door of my Lord Master; I pray that He may grant me a discerning intellect. || Pause ||
Mon Bhaeo Karpaatee Raheo Nagan Fireo Ban Maahee || Tatt Teerathh Sabh Dhhartee Bharmeo Dubidhhaa Shhuttkai Naahee ||2||
One may remain silent and use his hands as begging bowls, and wander naked in the forest. He may make pilgrimages to river banks and sacred shrines all over the world, but his sense of duality will not leave him.
Man Kaamnaa Teerathh Jaae Baseo Sir Karvat Dhharaae || Man Kee Mail N Outrai Eh Bidhh Je Lakh Jatan Karaae ||3||
His mind’s desires may lead him to go and dwell at sacred places of pilgrimage, and offer his head to be sawn off; But this will not cause the filth of his mind to depart, even though he may make thousands of efforts.
Kanik Kaamenee Haivar Gaivar Bahu Bidhh Daan Daataaraa || Ann Baster Bhoom Bahu Arpe Neh Mileeai Har Duaaraa ||4||
He may give gifts of all sorts – gold, women, horses and elephants. He may make offerings of corn, clothes and land in abundance, but this will not lead him to the Lord’s Door.
Poojaa Archaa Bandan Ddanddaut Khatt Karmaa Rat Rehtaa || Hau Hau Karat Bandhhan Meh Pareaa Neh Mileeai Eh Jugtaa ||5||
He may remain devoted to worship and adoration, bowing his forehead to the floor, practicing the six religious rituals. He indulges in egotism and pride, and falls into entanglements, but he does not meet the Lord by these devices.
Jog Sidhh Aasan Chauraaseeh Ey Bhee Kar Kar Raheaa || Vaddee Aarjaa Fir Fir Janmai Har Siu Sang N Gaheaa ||6||
He practices the eighty-four postures of Yoga, and acquires the supernatural powers of the Siddhas, but he gets tired of practicing these. He lives a long life, but is reincarnated again and again; he has not met with the Lord.
Raaj Leelaa Raajan Kee Rachnaa Kareaa Hukam Afaaraa || Sej Sohnee Chandan Choaa Narak Ghor Kaa Duaaraa ||7||
He may enjoy princely pleasures, and regal pomp and ceremony, and issue unchallenged commands. He may lie on beautiful beds, perfumed with sandalwood oil, but this will led him only to the gates of the most horrible hell.
Har Keerat Saadhhsangat Hai Sir Karman Kai Karmaa || Kahu Naanak Tis Bhaeo Paraapat Jis Purab Likhe Kaa Lehnaa ||8||
Singing the Kirtan of the Lord’s Praises in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, is the highest of all actions. Says Nanak Ji, he alone obtains it, who is pre-destined to receive it.
Tero Sevak Eh Rang Maataa || Bhaeo Kirpaal Deen Dukh Bhanjan Har Har Keertan Ehu Man Raataa || Rahaau Doojaa ||1||3||
Your Daas is intoxicated with this Love of Yours. The Destroyer of the pains of the poor has become merciful to me, and this mind is imbued with the Praises of the Lord, Har, Har.
