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.
