Raag Goojaree, Fifth Mehl: Guru Arjan Dev Ji
Kaahe re man chitaveh audham
jaa aahar har jeeau pariaa ||
Sail pathar meh ja(n)t aupaae
taa kaa rijak aagai kar dhariaa ||1||
Why, O mind, do you plot and plan, when the Dear Lord Himself provides for your care?
From rocks and stones He created living beings; He places their nourishment before them. ||1||
Mere maadhau jee
satasa(n)gat mile su tariaa ||
Gur parasaadh param padh paiaa
sooke kaasat hariaa ||1|| rahaau ||
O my Dear Lord of souls, one who joins the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, is saved.
By Guru’s Grace, the supreme status is obtained, and the dry wood blossoms forth again in lush greenery. ||1||Pause||
Janan pitaa lok sut banitaa
koi na kis kee dhariaa ||
Sir sir rijak sa(n)baahe ttaakur
kaahe man bhau kariaa ||2||
Mothers, fathers, friends, children and spouses-no one is the support of anyone else.
For each and every person, our Lord and Master provides sustenance. Why are you so afraid, O mind? ||2||
Uoodde uoodd aavai sai kosaa
tis paachhai bachare chhariaa ||
Tin kavan khalaavai kavan chugaavai
man meh simaran kariaa ||3||
The flamingoes fly hundreds of miles, leaving their young ones behind.
Who feeds them, and who teaches them to feed themselves? Have you ever thought of this in your mind? ||3||
Sabh nidhaan dhas asat sidhaan
taakur kar tal dhariaa ||
Jan naanak bal bal sadh bal jaieeaai
teraa a(n)t na paaraavariaa ||4||5||
All the nine treasures, and the eighteen supernatural powers are held by our Lord and Master in the Palm of His Hand.
Servant Nanak is devoted, dedicated, forever a sacrifice to You, Lord. Your Expanse has no limit, no boundary. ||4||5||
