RAAMKALEE, THIRD MEHL, ANAND ~ THE SONG OF BLISS:ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU: I am in ecstasy, O my mother, for I have found my True Guru. I have found the True Guru, with intuitive ease, and my mind vibrates with the music of bliss. The jewelled melodies and their related celestial harmonies have come to sing the Word of the Shabad. The Lord dwells within the minds of those who sing the Shabad. Says Nanak, I am in ecstasy, for I have found my True Guru. || 1 || O my mind, remain always with the Lord. Remain always with the Lord, O my mind, and all sufferings will be forgotten. He will accept You as His own, and all your affairs will be perfectly arranged. Our Lord and Master is all-powerful to do all things, so why forget Him from your mind? Says Nanak, O my mind, remain always with the Lord. || 2 || O my True Lord and Master, what is there which is not in Your celestial home? Everything is in Your home; they receive, unto whom You give. Constantly singing Your Praises and Glories, Your Name is enshrined in the mind. The divine melody of the Shabad vibrates for those, within whose minds the Naam abides. Says Nanak, O my True Lord and Master, what is there which is not in Your home? || 3 || The True Name is my only support. The True Name is my only support; it satisfies all hunger. It has brought peace and tranquility to my mind; it has fulfilled all my desires. I am forever a sacrifice to the Guru, who possesses such glorious greatness. Says Nanak, listen, O Saints; enshrine love for the Shabad. The True Name is my only support. || 4 || The Panch Shabad, the five primal sounds, vibrate in that blessed house. In that blessed house, the Shabad vibrates; He infuses His almighty power into it. Through You, we subdue the five demons of desire, and slay Death, the torturer. Those who have such pre-ordained destiny are attached to the Lord’s Name. Says Nanak, they are at peace, and the unstruck sound current vibrates within their homes. || 5 || Without the true love of devotion, the body is without honor. The body is dishonored without devotional love; what can the poor wretches do? No one except You is all-powerful; please bestow Your Mercy, O Lord of all nature. There is no place of rest, other than the Name; attached to the Shabad, we are embellished with beauty. Says Nanak, without devotional love, what can the poor wretches do? || 6 || Bliss, bliss – everyone talks of bliss; bliss is known only through the Guru. Eternal bliss in known only through the Guru, when the Beloved Lord grants His Grace. Granting His Grace, He cuts away our sins; He blesses us with the healing ointment of spiritual wisdom. Those who eradicate attachment from within themselves, are adorned with the Shabad, the Word of the True Lord.

GUJRI, FIRST MEHL, FOURTH HOUSE:ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:

The devotees worship the Lord in loving adoration. They thirst for the True Lord, with infinite affection. They tearfully beg and implore the Lord; in love and affection, their consciousness is at peace. || 1 || Chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord, O my mind, and take to His Sanctuary. The Lord’s Name is the boat to cross over the world-ocean. Practice such a way of life. || 1 || Pause || O mind, even death wishes you well, when you remember the Lord through the Word of the Guru’s Shabad. The intellect receives the treasure, the knowledge of reality and supreme bliss, by repeating the Lord’s Name in the mind. || 2 || The fickle consciousness wanders around chasing after wealth; it is intoxicated with worldly love and emotional attachment. Devotion to the Naam is permanently implanted within the mind, when it is attuned to the Guru’s Teachings and His Shabad. || 3 || Wandering around, doubt is not dispelled; afflicted by reincarnation, the world is being ruined. The Lord’s eternal throne is free of this affliction; he is truly wise, who takes the Naam as his deep meditation. || 4 || This world is engrossed in attachment and transitory love; it suffers the terrible pains of birth and death. Run to the Sanctuary of the True Guru, chant the Lord’s Name in your heart, and you shall swim across. || 5 || Following the Guru’s Teaching, the mind becomes stable; the mind accepts it, and reflects upon it in peaceful poise. That mind is pure, which enshrines Truth within, and the most excellent jewel of spiritual wisdom. || 6 || By the Fear of God, and Love of God, and by devotion, man crosses over the terrifying world-ocean, focusing his consciousness on the Lord’s Lotus Feet.

I listened to the Vedas, the Puraanas and the Simritees, and I pondered over them in so many ways. The Saving Grace of sinners, the Destroyer of fear, the Ocean of peace, the Formless Lord. The Great Giver, the Enjoyer, the Bestower – there is no place at all without Him. You shall obtain all that you desire, O Nanak, singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. || 1 || Sing the Praises of the Lord, the Lord of the Universe, each and every day. Join the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, and vibrate, meditate on Him, O my friend. || 1 || Pause || SHALOK: Bow in humility to the Lord, over and over again, and enter the Sanctuary of the Lord, our King. Doubt is eradicated, O Nanak, in the Company of the Holy, and the love of duality is eliminated. || 2 || PAUREE: The second day of the lunar cycle: Get rid of your evil-mindedness, and serve the Guru continually. The jewel of the Lord’s Name shall come to dwell in your mind and body, when you renounce sexual desire, anger and greed, O my friend. Conquer death and obtain eternal life; all your troubles will depart.

I am in ecstasy, absorbed in celestial peace; the True Guru has united me in His Union. || 2 || O mind, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord; worship the Naam, night and day, and recite the Naam. Listen to the Teachings of the Holy Saints, and all fear of death will be dispelled. Those blessed by God’s Grace are attached to the Word of the Guru’s Bani. || 3 || Who can estimate Your worth, God? You are kind and compassionate to all beings.

They are so tired of performing their many deeds, O Siblings of Destiny, but they fall into bondage again and again. I have searched in the four directions, O Siblings of Destiny, but without the True Guru, there is no place at all.

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

Contemplating Him within my consciousness, I obtain total peace; but hereafter, will I be pleasing to Him or not? There is only One Giver; all others are beggars. Who else can we turn to? || 1 || When I beg from others, I am ashamed. The One Lord Master is the Supreme King of all; who else is equal to Him? || 1 || Pause || Standing up and sitting down, I cannot live without Him.

Even Brahma and the sages Sanak, Sanandan, Sanaatan and Sanat Kumar, find it difficult to obtain the Mansion of the Lord’s Presence. || 2 || He is unapproachable and unfathomable; His wisdom is deep and profound; His value cannot be appraised. I have taken to the Sanctuary of the True Lord, the Primal Being, and I meditate on the True Guru. || 3 || God, the Lord Master, has become kind and compassionate; He has cut the noose of death away from my neck.

In the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, this faith is established, that the Lord is with us, in life and in death. || 3 || Bless servant Nanak with this gift, O God, that he may obtain, and enshrine in his heart, the dust of the feet of the Saints. Hear the Lord’s Sermon with your ears, and behold the Blessed Vision of His Darshan with your eyes; place your forehead upon the Guru’s Feet. || 4 || 2 || 122 ||
