KOT KOTEE MAYREE AARJAA – This Shabad brings longevity

Elderly-Woman-doing-the-Splits

Siree Raag, First Mehla:

Kot Kotee Meree Aarajaa Pavan Peean Apiaau ||

Chandh Sooraj Dhue Gufai Na Dhekhaa Supanai Saun Na Thaau ||

If I could live for millions and millions of years, with only air for my food and drink.

And if I lived in a cave and never saw either the sun or the moon, … Where dream filled sleep never could come again

 

Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||1||

Saachaa Nirankaar Nij Thaae ||

Even then I could not estimate Your Value. How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||1||

The True Lord, the Formless One, You hold a place all your own.

 

Sun Sun Aakhan Aakha Naa Je Bhaavai Kare Tamaae ||1|| Rahaau ||

Kusaa KaTeeaa Vaar Vaar Peesan Peesaa Paae ||

Again and again I have heard of Your exellence. If it is pleasing to You, then create that longing within me.  ||1||Pause||

If I was slashed and cut into pieces, over and over again, and put into the mill and ground into flour,

 

Agee Setee Jaaleeaa Bhasam Setee Ral Jaau ||

Pankhee Hoe Kai Je Bhavaa Sai Asamaanee Jaau ||

Burnt by fire and mixed with ashes -even then, I could not estimate Your Value. How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||2||

If I was a bird, soaring and flying through hundreds of heavens, vanishing altogether from sight,

 

Nadharee Kisai Na Aavuoo Naa Kichh Peeaa Na Khaau ||

Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||3||

Neither eating nor drinking anything-even so, I could not estimate Your Value.

How can I describe the Greatness of Your Name? ||3||

 

Naanak Kaagadh Lakh Manaa Par Par Keechai Bhaau ||

Masoo Tot Na Aave’ee Lekhan Paun Chalaau ||

O Nanak, if I had hundreds of thousands of stacks of paper, and an unlimited supply of ink.
And a pen that moved like fury of wind
Embracing the love of the Lord … reading and rereading the content of those pages

 

Bhee Teree Keemat Naa Pavai Hu Kevadd Aakhaa Naau ||4||2||

Even then I could never truly appraise Your Worth, or tell of the Greatness of Your Name  ||4||2||
