Sri Raag – Guru Arjan Dev – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 71
Jaa kao muskal at banai dho-ee ko-i na day-i
Laagoo ho-i dusmanaa saak bhi bhaj khalay
Sabho bhajai aasaraa chukai sabh asaraa-o
Chit aavai os paarbrahm lagai na tatee vaa-o.
Saahib nitaani-aa kaa taan.
Aa-i na jaa-ee thir sadaa gurshabadee sach jaan.
Jay ko hovay dubalaa nang bhukh kee peer.
Damaraa palai naa pavai naa ko dayvai dheer.
Su-aarath su-aa-o na ko karay naa kichh hovai kaaj.
Chit aavai os paarbrahm taa nihchal hovai raaj.
Jaa kao chintaa bahut bahut dayhee vi-aapai rog.
Grisht kutamb palayti-aa kaday harakh kaday sog.
Guan karay chaho kunt kaa gharee na baisan so-i.
Chit aavai os paarbrahm tan man seetal ho-i.
Kaam karodh mo-eh vas kee-aa kirpan lobh pi-aar.
Chaaray kilvikh un agh kee-ay ho-aa asur sanghaar.
Pothee geet kavit kichh kaday na karan dhari-aa.
Chit aavai os paarbrahm taa nimakh simarat tari-aa.
Sri Raag, Fifth Mehl:
One who is confronted with dire difficulty, to whom no one offers any support;
Whose friends have turned into enemies, and even kinsmen have deserted him;
When all support has given way and all hope has been lost –
If he should then remember the Supreme Lord, even the hot wind shall not touch him.
O Master, Power of the powerless:
Who neither comes nor goes, and is ever permanent,
By the Guru’s Word, He is known as True.
If one is weak from the pangs of hunger and poverty,
If one’s pockets are empty of money, and none are there to give him comfort,
If none of his aims and desires are fulfilled, and none of his works accomplished,
If he should then remember the Supreme Lord, he shall attain the Kingdom Eternal.
One who is plagued by tremendous anxiety, whose body is wracked by disease,
Who is wrapped up in household and family, who suffers now pain, and now pleasure,
Who wanders about in all four directions, who cannot sit or sleep even for a moment,
If he should then remember the Supreme Lord, his body and soul shall be cooled.
He who is driven by lust, anger and attachment, who is a miser goaded by greed,
Who has committed the four great sins, and so is being destroyed,
Who has never lent his ears to sacred words of scripture or poetry,
If he should then remember the Supreme Lord, even for a moment, he is saved.
