Author: Guru Arjan Dev Ji

Sorat’h, Fifth Mehl:

Mirtak kau paa-i-o tan saasaa

Bichhurat aan milaa-i-aa

Pasoo parayt mugadh bha-ay srotay

Harinaamaa mukh gaa-i-aa

Pooray gur kee daykh vadaa-ee

Taa kee keemat kehn na jaa-ee (rahaa-o)

Dookh sog kaa dhaa-i-o dayraa

Anad mangal bisraamaa

Man baanchhat fal milay achintaa

Pooran ho-ay kaamaa

Eehaa sukh aagai mukh oojal

Mit ga-ay aavan jaanay

Nirbhau bha-ay hirdai naam vasi-aa

Apunay satigur kai man bhaanay

Oothat baithat har gun gaavai

Dookh darad bhram bhaagaa

Kaho Naanak taa kay poor karmaa

Jaa kaa gur charnee man laagaa  II 4 II 10 II 21 II


Into the dead body, He infuses the breath of life,

And the separated ones, He unites.

Even beasts, goblins and fools become attentive listeners,

When He sings the Name of the Lord.

Behold the Glorious Greatness of the Perfect Guru.

His Worth cannot be described.

He demolishes the abode of sorrow and distress.

Bliss, beatitude and lasting peace have now come.

The fruits of one’s heart’s desires are obtained, effortlessly,

And one’s works are brought to fulfillment.

One obtains peace in this world,

And in the next, one’s face shines radiantly;

One’s comings and goings are ended.

One becomes fearless, and the Naam abides in the heart,

Of the one who is pleasing to the Mind of the True Guru.

Standing up and sitting down,

Singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord,

Grief, distress and doubt are dispelled.

Says Nanak: One’s karmas are finished,

As one’s mind is fixed on the Lotus Feet of the Guru.
