Raag Sorath – Guru Amar Das Ji – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 644
Salok Mehlaa 3
Satgur kee sayvaa safal hai jay ko karay chit laa-ay
Man chindi-aa fal paavnaa ha-umai vichahu jaa-ay
BanDhan torhai mukat ho-ay sachay rahai samaa-ay
Is jag meh naam alabh hai gurmukh vasai man aa-ay
Naanak jo gur sayveh aapnaa ha-o tin balihaarai jaa-o II 1 II
Shalok, Third Mehl:
Service to the True Guru is fruitful and rewarding, if one performs it with his mind focused on it.
The fruits of the mind’s desires are obtained, and egotism departs from within.
His bonds are broken, and he is liberated; he remains absorbed in the True Lord.
It is so difficult to obtain the Naam in this world; it comes to dwell in the mind of the Gurmukh.
O Nanak, I am a sacrifice to one who serves his True Guru. || 1 ||
