Sanak and Sanand, the sons of Brahma, could not find the Lord’s limits. Brahma wasted his life away, continually reading the Vedas. || 1 ||

Churn the churn of the Lord, O my Siblings of Destiny. Churn it steadily, so that the essence, the butter, may not be lost. || 1 ||

Pause ||

Make your body the churning jar, and use the stick of your mind to churn it. Gather the curds of the Word of the Shabad. || 2 ||

The churning of the Lord is to reflect upon Him within your mind. By Guru’s Grace, the Ambrosial Nectar flows into us. || 3 ||

Says Kabeer, if the Lord, our King casts His Glance of Grace, one is carried across to the other side, holding fast to the Lord’s Name. || 4 || 1 || 10 ||

Diamonds and rubies are produced deep within the self. They are assayed and valued tthrough the Word of the Guru’s Shabad. Those who have gathered Truth, speak Truth; they apply the Touch-stone of Truth. || 1 ||

I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice, to those who enshrine the Word of the Guru’s Bani within their minds. In the midst of the darkness of the world, they obtain the Immaculate One, and their light merges into the Light. || 1 ||

Pause ||

Within this body are countless vast vistas; the Immaculate Naam is totally Inaccessible and Infinite. He alone becomes Gurmukh and obtains it, whom the Lord forgives, and unites with Himself. || 2 ||

My Lord and Master implants the Truth. By Guru’s Grace, one’s consciousness is attached to the Truth. The Truest of the True is pervading everywhere; the true ones merge in Truth. || 3 ||

The True Carefree Lord is my Beloved. He cuts out our sinful mistakes and evil actions; with love and affection, meditate forever on Him. He implants the Fear of God and loving devotional worship within us. || 4 ||

Devotional worship is True, if it pleases the True Lord. He Himself bestows it; He does not regret it later. He alone is the Giver of all beings. The Lord kills with the Word of His Shabad, and then revives. || 5 ||

Other than You, Lord, nothing is mine. I serve You, Lord, and I praise You. You unite me with Yourself, O True God. Through perfect good karma You are obtained. || 6 ||

For me, there is no other like You. By Your Glance of Grace, my body is blessed and sanctified. Night and day, the Lord takes care of us and protects us. The Gurmukhs are absorbed in intuitive peace and poise. || 7 || For me, there is no other as Great as You. You Yourself create, and You Yourself destroy. You Yourself create, destroy and adorn. O Nanak, we are adorned and embellished with the Naam.

Meeting with the council, my doubts were not dispelled. The chiefs did not give me satisfaction. I presented my dispute to the noblemen as well. But it was only settled by meeting with the King, my Lord. || 1 ||

Now, I do not go searching anywhere else, because I have met the Guru, the Lord of the Universe. || Pause ||

When I came to God’s Darbaar, His Holy Court, then all of my cries and complaints were settled. Now that I have attained what I had sought, where should I come and where should I go? || 2 ||

There, true justice is administered. There, the Lord Master and His disciple are one and the same. The Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts, knows. Without our speaking, He understands. || 3 ||

He is the King of all places. There, the unstruck melody of the Shabad resounds. Of what use is cleverness when dealing with Him? Meeting with Him, O Nanak, one loses his self-conceit. || 4 || 1 || 51 ||

Ahalyaa was the wife of Gautam the seer. Seeing her, Indra was enticed. When he received a thousand marks of disgrace on his body, then he felt regret in his mind. || 1 ||

O Siblings of Destiny, no one knowingly makes mistakes. He alone is mistaken, whom the Lord Himself makes so. He alone understands, whom the Lord causes to understand. || 1 ||

Pause ||

Harichand, the king and ruler of his land, did not appreciate the value of his pre-ordained destiny. If he had known that it was a mistake, he would not have made such a show of giving in charity, and he would not have been sold in the market. || 2 ||

The Lord took the form of a dwarf, and asked for some land. If Bal the king has recognized Him, he would not have been deceived, and sent to the underworld. || 3 ||

Vyaas taught and warned the king Janmayjaa not to do three things. But he performed the sacred feast and killed eighteen Brahmins; the record of one’s past deeds cannot be erased. || 4 ||

I do not try to calculate the account; I accept the Hukam of God’s Command. I speak with intuitive love and respect. No matter what happens, I will praise the Lord. It is all Your Glorious Greatness, O Lord. || 5 ||

The Gurmukh remains detached; filth never attaches itself to him. He remains forever in God’s Sanctuary. The foolish self-willed manmukh does not think of the future; he is overtaken by pain, and then he regrets. || 6 ||

The Creator who created this creation acts, and causes all to act. O Lord, egotistical pride does not depart from the soul. Falling into egotistical pride, one is ruined. || 7 ||

Everyone makes mistakes; only the Creator does not make mistakes. O Nanak, salvation comes through the True Name. By Guru’s Grace, one is released. || 8 || 4 ||

RAAMKALEE, SECOND HOUSE: Someone may practice austerities at Benares, or die upside-down at a sacred shrine of  pilgrimage, or burn his body in fire, or rejuvenate his body to life almost forever; he may perform the horse-sacrifice ceremony, or give donations of gold covered over, but none of these is equal to the worship of the Lord’s Name. 1 ||

O hypocrite, renounce and abandon your hypocrisy; do not practice deception. Constantly, continually, chant the Name of the Lord. 1 || Pause ||

Someone may go to the Ganges or the Godaavari, or to the Kumbha festival, or bathe at Kaydaar Naat’h, or make donations of thousands of cows at Gomti; he may make millions of pilgrimages to sacred shrines, or freeze his body in the Himalayas; still, none of these is equal to the worship of the Lord’s Name. 2 ||

Someone may give away horses and elephants, or women on their beds, or land; he may give such gifts over and over again. He may purify his soul, and give away in charity his body weight in gold; none of these is equal to the worship of the Lord’s Name. 3 ||

Do not harbor anger in your mind, or blame the Messenger of Death; instead, realize the immaculate state of Nirvaanaa. My Sovereign Lord King is Raam Chandra, the Son of the King Dasrat’h; prays Naam Dayv, I drink in the Ambrosial Nectar. 4 || 4

The body is the Lord’s horse, imbued with the fresh and new color. From the Guru, I ask for the Lord’s spiritual wisdom. I ask for the Lord’s spiritual wisdom, and the Lord’s sublime sermon; through the Name of the Lord, I have come to know His value and His state. The Creator has made my whole life fruitful; I chant the Name of the Lord. The Lord’s humble servant begs for the Lord’s Name, for the Lord’s Praises, and for devotional worship of the Lord God. Says servant Nanak, listen, O Saints: devotional worship of the Lord, the Lord of the Universe, is good and sublime. || 1 ||

The golden body is adorned with the saddle of gold. It is adorned with the jewel of the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. Adorned with the jewel of the Naam, one obtains the Lord of the Universe; he meets the Lord and sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord, obtaining all sorts of comforts. He obtains the Word of the Guru’s Shabad, and meditates on the Name of the Lord; by great good fortune, he assumes the color of the Lord’s Love. He meets his Lord and Master, the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts; His body is ever-new, and His color is ever-fresh. Nanak chants and realizes the Naam; he begs for the Name of the Lord, the Lord God. || 2 ||

The Guru has placed the reins in the mouth of the body-horse. The mind-elephant is overpowered by the Word of the Guru’s Shabad. The bride obtains the supreme status, as her mind is brought under control; she is the beloved of her Husband Lord. Deep within her inner being, she is in love with her Lord. In His home, she is so beautiful – she is the bride of her Lord God. Attuned to the Lord’s Love, she is intuitively absorbed in bliss; she obtains the Lord God, Har, Har. Servant Nanak, the Lord’s slave, says that only the very fortunate meditate on the Lord, Har, Har. || 3 ||

The body is the horse, which one rides to the Lord. Meeting the True Guru, one sings the songs of joy. Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants. Go and enter the Mansion of God’s Presence, and lovingly enjoy the Lord’s Love. I sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, so pleasing to my mind; following the Guru’s Teachings, I meditate on the Lord within my mind. The Lord has showered His Mercy upon servant Nanak; mounting the body-horse, he has found the Lord. || 4 || 2 || 6 ||

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 ||
