SORAT’H, FIFTH MEHL, SECOND HOUSE, DU-PADAS:ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:
Fire is contained in all firewood, and butter is contained in all milk. God’s Light is contained in the high and the low; the Lord is in the hearts of all beings. || 1 || O Saints, He is pervading and permeating each and every heart. The Perfect Lord is completely permeating everyone, everywhere; He is diffused in the water and the land. || 1 || Pause || Nanak sings the Praises of the Lord, the treasure of excellence; the True Guru has dispelled his doubt. The Lord is pervading everywhere, permeating all, and yet, He is unattached from all. || 2 || 1 || 29 || SORAT’H, FIFTH MEHL: Meditating on Him, one is in ecstasy; the pains of birth and death and fear are removed. The four cardinal blessings, and the nine treasures are received; you shall never feel hunger or thirst again. || 1 || Chanting His Name, you shall be at peace. With each and every breath, meditate on the Lord and Master, O my soul, with mind, body and mouth. || 1 || Pause || You shall find peace, and your mind shall be soothed and cooled; the fire of desire shall not burn within you. The Guru has revealed God to Nanak, in the three worlds, in the water, the earth and the woods. || 2 || 2 || 30 || SORAT’H, FIFTH MEHL: Sexual desire, anger, greed, falsehood and slander – please, save me from these, O Lord. Please eradicate these from within me, and call me to come close to You. || 1 || You alone teach me Your Ways.
