RAAG SOOHEE, FIRST MEHL, KUCHAJEE ~ THE UNGRACEFUL BRIDE:
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:
I am ungraceful and ill-mannered, full of endless faults. How can I go to enjoy my Husband Lord? Each of His soul-brides is better than the rest – who even knows my name? Those brides who enjoy their Husband Lord are very blessed, resting in the shade of the mango tree. I do not have their virtue – who can I blame for this? Which of Your Virtues, O Lord, should I speak of? Which of Your Names should I chant? I cannot even reach one of Your Virtues. I am forever a sacrifice to You. Gold, silver, pearls and rubies are pleasing. My Husband Lord has blessed me with these things, and I have focused my thoughts on them. Palaces of brick and mud are built and decorated with stones; I have been fooled by these decorations, and I do not sit near my Husband Lord. The cranes shriek overhead in the sky, and the herons have come to rest. The bride has gone to her father-in-law’s house; in the world hereafter, what face will she show? She kept sleeping as the day dawned; she forgot all about her journey. She separated herself from her Husband Lord, and now she suffers in pain. Virtue is in You, O Lord; I am totally without virtue. This is Nanak’s only prayer: You give all Your nights to the virtuous soul-brides. I know I am unworthy, but isn’t there a night for me as well? || 1 || SOOHEE, FIRST MEHL, SUCHAJEE ~ THE NOBLE AND GRACEFUL BRIDE: When I have You, then I have everything. O my Lord and Master, You are my wealth and capital. Within You, I abide in peace; within You, I am congratulated. By the Pleasure of Your Will, You bestow thrones and greatness. And by the Pleasure of Your Will, You make us beggars and wanderers. By the Pleasure of Your Will, the ocean flows in the desert, and the lotus blossoms in the sky. By the Pleasure of Your Will, one crosses over the terrifying world-ocean; by the Pleasure of Your Will, he sinks down into it. By the Pleasure of His Will, that Lord becomes my Husband, and I am imbued with the Praises of the Lord, the treasure of virtue. By the Pleasure of Your Will, O my Husband Lord, I am afraid of You, and I come and go, and die. You, O my Husband Lord, are inaccessible and immeasurable; talking and speaking of You, I have fallen at Your Feet. What should I beg for? What should I say and hear? I am hungry and thirsty for the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. Through the Word of the Guru’s Teachings, I have found my Husband Lord.Sa

SOOHEE, FIFTH MEHL, THIRD HOUSE:
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:
His service is insignificant, but his demands are very great. He does not obtain the Mansion of the Lord’s Presence, but he says that he has arrived there || 1 ||

He competes with those who have been accepted by the Beloved Lord. This is how stubborn the false fool is! || 1 ||

Pause ||

He wears religious robes, but he does not practice Truth. He says that he has found the Mansion of the Lord’s Presence, but he cannot even get near it. || 2 ||

He says that he is unattached, but he is intoxicated with Maya. There is no love in his mind, and yet he says that he is imbued with the Lord. || 3 ||

Says Nanak, hear my prayer, God: I am silly, stubborn and filled with sexual desire – please, liberate me! || 4 ||

I gaze upon the glorious greatness of the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan. You are the Giver of Peace, the Loving Primal Being. || 1 ||

Second Pause || 1 || 7 ||

JAITSREE, FOURTH MEHL, FIRST HOUSE, CHAU-PADAS:
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:
The Jewel of the Lord’s Name abides within my heart; the Guru has placed His hand on my forehead. The sins and pains of countless incarnations have been cast out. The Guru has blessed me with the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and my debt has been paid off. || 1 ||

O my mind, vibrate the Lord’s Name, and all your affairs shall be resolved. The Perfect Guru has implanted the Lord’s Name within me; without the Name, life is useless. || Pause ||

Without the Guru, the self-willed manmukhs are foolish and ignorant; they are forever entangled in emotional attachment to Maya. They never serve the feet of the Holy; their lives are totally useless. || 2 ||

Those who serve at the feet of the Holy, the feet of the Holy, their lives are made fruitful, and they belong to the Lord. Make me the slave of the slave of the slaves of the Lord; bless me with Your Mercy, O Lord of the Universe. || 3 ||

I am blind, ignorant and totally without wisdom; how can I walk on the Path? I am blind – O Guru, please let me grasp the hem of Your robe, so that servant Nanak may walk in harmony with You. || 4 || 1 ||

RAAG DHANAASAREE, THIRD MEHL, FOURTH HOUSE:
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:

I am just a poor beggar of Yours; You are Your Own Lord Master, You are the Great Giver. Be Merciful, and bless me, a humble beggar, with Your Name, so that I may forever remain imbued with Your Love. || 1 ||

I am a sacrifice to Your Name, O True Lord. The One Lord is the Cause of causes; there is no other at all. || 1 ||

Pause ||

I was wretched; I wandered through so many cycles of reincarnation. Now, Lord, please bless me with Your Grace. Be merciful, and grant me the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan; please grant me such a gift. || 2 ||

Prays Nanak, the shutters of doubt have been opened wide; by Guru’s Grace, I have come to know the Lord. I am filled to overflowing with true love; my mind is pleased and appeased by the True Guru. || 3 || 1 || 9 ||

DHANAASAREE, FIFTH MEHL:

The desires of the greatest of the great kings and landlords cannot be satisfied. They remain engrossed in Maya, intoxicated with the pleasures of their wealth; their eyes see nothing else at all. || 1 ||

No one has ever found satisfaction in sin and corruption. The flame is not satisfied by more fuel; how can one be satisfied without the Lord?

|| Pause ||

Day after day, he eats his meals with many different foods, but his hunger is not eradicated. He runs around like a dog, searching in the four directions. || 2 ||

The lustful, lecherous man desires many women, and he never stops peeking into the homes of others. Day after day, he commits adultery again and again, and then he regrets his actions; he wastes away in misery and greed. || 3 ||

The Name of the Lord, Har, Har, is incomparable and priceless; it is the treasure of Ambrosial Nectar. The Saints abide in peace, poise and bliss; O Nanak, through the Guru, this is known. || 4 || 6 ||

Remembering, remembering the Perfect Lord in meditation, I have saved all my companions. || 1 || The Mul Mantra, the Root Mantra, is the only cure for the mind; I have installed faith in God in my mind. Nanak ever longs for the dust of the Lord’s feet; again and again, he is a sacrifice to the Lord. || 2 || 16 || DHANAASAREE, FIFTH MEHL: I have fallen in love with the Lord. My True Guru is always my help and support; He has torn down the banner of pain. || 1 || Pause || Giving me His hand, He has protected me as His own, and removed all my troubles. He has blackened the faces of the slanderers, and He Himself has become the help and support of His humble servant. || 1 || The True Lord and Master has become my Saviour; hugging me close in His embrace, He has saved me. Nanak has become fearless, and he enjoys eternal peace, singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. || 2 || 17 || DHANAASAREE, FIFTH MEHL: Your Name is the medicine, O Merciful Lord. I am so miserable, I do not know Your state; You Yourself cherish me, Lord. || 1 || Pause || Take pity on me, O my Lord and Master, and remove the love of duality from within me. Break my bonds, and take me as Your own, so that I may never come to lose. || 1 || Seeking Your Sanctuary, I live, almighty and merciful Lord and Master. Twenty-four hours a day, I worship God; Nanak is forever a sacrifice to Him. || 2 || 18 ||

AASAA, FIFTH MEHL, ASHTAPADEES, SECOND HOUSE:ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:

When the five virtues were reconciled, and the five passions were estranged, I enshrined the five within myself, and cast out the other five. || 1 ||

In this way, the village of my body became inhabited, O my Siblings of Destiny. Vice departed, and the Guru’s spiritual wisdom was implanted within me. || 1 ||

Pause ||

The fence of true Dharmic religion has been built around it. The spiritual wisdom and reflective meditation of the Guru has become its strong gate. || 2 ||

So plant the seed of the Naam, the Name of the Lord, O friends, O Siblings of Destiny. Deal only in the constant service of the Guru. || 3 ||

With intuitive peace and happiness, all the shops are filled. The Banker and the dealers dwell in the same place. || 4 ||

There is no tax on non-believers, nor any fines or taxes at death. The True Guru has set the Seal of the Primal Lord upon these goods. || 5 ||

So load the merchandise of the Naam, and set sail with your cargo. Earn your profit, as Gurmukh, and you shall return to your own home. || 6 ||

The True Guru is the Banker, and His Sikhs are the traders. Their merchandise is the Naam, and meditation on the True Lord is their account. || 7 ||

One who serves the True Guru dwells in this house. O Nanak, the Divine City is eternal.
