Raag Asa – Guru Arjan Dev Ji – Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 396
Satigur saachai dee-aa bhayj
Chir jeevan upaji-aa sanjog
Udarai maa-eh aa-i kee-aa nivaas
Maataa kai man bahut bigaas
Jammi-aa poot bhagat govind kaa
Pragati-aa sabh meh likhi-aa dhur kaa
Dasee maasee hukam baalak janam lee-aa
Miti-aa sog mahaa anand thee-aa
Gurbaanee sakhee anand gaavai
Saachay saahib kai man bhaavai
Vadhee vayl baho peeree chaalee
Dharam kalaa har band bahaalee
Man chindi-aa satiguroo divaa-i-aa
Bha-ay achint ayk liv laa-i-aa
Ji-o baalak pitaa oopar karay baho maan
Bulaa-i-aa bolai gur kai bhaan
Gujhee chhannee naahee baat
Gur Naanak tuthaa keenee daat
Raag Asa, Fifth Mehl:
The True Guru has truly given a child.
The long-lived one has been born to this destiny.
He came to acquire an abode in the womb.
And his mother’s heart is very glad.
A son is born – a devotee of the World-Lord.
This pre-ordained destiny has been revealed to all.
In the tenth month, by the Lord’s Order, the baby has been born.
Sorrow is dispelled, and immense bliss has ensued.
The companions sing Gurbani, and are in bliss.
This is pleasing to the Lord Master.
The vine has grown, and shall last for many generations.
The Power of the Dharma has been firmly established by the Lord.
What my mind wished for, the True Guru has granted.
I have become carefree, and I fix my attention on the One Lord.
And as the child places great faith in the father,
I speak as it pleases the Guru to have me speak.
This is not a hidden secret –
Guru Nanak, greatly pleased, has bestowed this Gift.
