Raag Asa – Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 384-385

Author: Guru Arjan Dev Ji

Aasaa Mehalaa 5 ||

Saach naam mayraa man laagaa

Logan si-o mayraa thaathaa baagaa

Baahar soot sagal si-o maulaa

Alipat rahau jaisay jal meh kaulaa (Rahaa-o)

Mukh kee baat sagal si-o kartaa

Jee-a sang prabh apunaa dhartaa

Dees aavat hai bahut bheehaalaa

Sagal charan kee iho man raalaa

Naanak jan gur pooraa paa-i-aa

Antar baahar ayk dikhaa-i-aa

To hold fast to the True Name is the very essence of my being.

Though to the public I am pleasant,

My outward projection is but a show.

For I remain detached — like the lotus on the water. (Pause)

I may answer to All with my tongue,

Yet by my heart to the Lord I am bound.

Though awe-inspired I may appear,

The dust of the feet of humanity are my mind, heart and soul.

Nanak, the servant of the Lord’s, has found his perfect Guru,

Who has revealed unto him the One Lord within and without.
