They are consigned to hell by the Creator Lord, and the Accountant calls them to give their account. || 2 || No brothers or sisters can go with them. Leaving behind their property, youth and wealth, they march off. They do not know the kind and compassionate Lord; they shall be crushed like sesame seeds in the oil-press. || 3 || You happily, cheerfully steal the possessions of others, but the Lord God is with you, watching and listening. Through worldly greed, you have fallen into the pit; you know nothing of the future. || 4 || You shall be born and born again, and die and die again, only Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница to be reincarnated again. You shall suffer terrible punishment, on your way to the land beyond. The mortal does not know the One who created him; he is blind, and so he shall suffer. || 5 || Forgetting the Creator Lord, he is ruined. The drama of the world is bad; it brings sadness and then happiness. One who does not meet the Saint does not have faith or contentment; he wanders just as he pleases. || 6 || The Lord Himself stages all this drama. Some, he lifts up, and some he throws into the waves. As He makes them dance, so do Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница they dance. Everyone lives their lives according to their past actions. || 7 || When the Lord and Master grants His Grace, then we meditate on Him. In the Society of the Saints, one is not consigned to hell. Please bless Nanak with the gift of the Ambrosial Naam, the Name of the Lord; he continually sings the songs of Your Glories. || 8 || 2 || 8 || 12 || 20 ||
MARU, SOLAHAS, FIRST MEHL:
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD. BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU:
The True Lord is True; there is no other at all. He who created, shall in the end destroy. As it pleases You, so Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница You keep me, and so I remain; what excuse could I offer to You? || 1 || You Yourself create, and You Yourself destroy. You yourself link each and every person to their tasks. You contemplate Yourself, You Yourself make us worthy; You Yourself place us on the Path. || 2 || You Yourself are all-wise, You Yourself are all-knowing. You Yourself created the Universe, and You are pleased. You Yourself are the air, water and fire; You Yourself unite in Union. || 3 || You Yourself are the moon, the sun, the most perfect of the perfect. You Yourself are spiritual wisdom, meditation, and Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the Guru, the Warrior Hero. The Messenger of Death, and his noose of death, cannot touch one, who is lovingly focused on You, O True Lord. || 4 || You Yourself are the male, and You Yourself are the female. You Yourself are the chess-board, and You Yourself are the chessman. You Yourself staged the drama in the arena of the world, and You Yourself evaluate the players. || 5 || You Yourself are the bumble bee, the flower, the fruit and the tree. You Yourself are the water, the desert, the ocean and the pool. You Yourself are the great fish, the tortoise, the Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница Cause of causes; Your form cannot be known. || 6 || You Yourself are the day, and You Yourself are the night. You Yourself are pleased by the Word of the Guru’s Bani. From the very beginning, and throughout the ages, the unstruck sound current resounds, night and day; in each and every heart, the Word of the Shabad, echoes Your Will. || 7 || You Yourself are the jewel, incomparably beautiful and priceless. You Yourself are the Assessor, the Perfect Weigher.
You Yourself test and forgive. You Yourself give and take, O Siblings of Destiny. || 8 || He Himself is the bow, and He Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница Himself is the archer. He Himself is all-wise, beautiful and all-knowing. He is the speaker, the orator and the listener. He Himself made what is made. || 9 || Air is the Guru, and water is known to be the father. The womb of the great mother earth gives birth to all. Night and day are the two nurses, male and female; the world plays in this play. || 10 || You Yourself are the fish, and You Yourself are the net. You Yourself are the cows, and You yourself are their keeper. Your Light fills all the beings of the world; they walk according Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница to Your Command, O God. || 11 || You Yourself are the Yogi, and You Yourself are the enjoyer. You Yourself are the reveller; You form the supreme Union. You Yourself are speechless, formless and fearless, absorbed in the primal ecstasy of deep meditation. || 12 || The sources of creation and speech are contained within You, Lord. All that is seen, is coming and going. They are the true bankers and traders, whom the True Guru has inspired to understand. || 13 || The Word of the Shabad is understood through the Perfect True Guru. The True Lord is overflowing with all powers. You are beyond Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница our grasp, and forever independent. You do not have even an iota of greed. || 14 || Birth and death are meaningless, for those who enjoy the sublime celestial essence of the Shabad within their minds. He Himself is the Giver of liberation, satisfaction and blessings, to those devotees who love Him in their minds. || 15 || He Himself is immaculate; by contact with the Guru, spiritual wisdom is obtained. Whatever is seen, shall merge into You. Nanak, the lowly, begs for charity at Your Door; please, bless him with the glorious greatness of Your Name. || 16 || 1 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: He Himself is the earth, the Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница mythical bull which supports it and the Akaashic ethers. The True Lord Himself reveals His Glorious Virtues. He Himself is celibate, chaste and contented; He Himself is the Doer of deeds. || 1 || He who created the creation, beholds what He has created. No one can erase the Inscription of the True Lord. He Himself is the Doer, the Cause of causes; He Himself is the One who bestows glorious greatness. || 2 || The five thieves cause the fickle consciousness to waver. It looks into the homes of others, but does not search its own home. The body-village crumbles into Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница dust; without the Word of the Shabad, one’s honor is lost. || 3 || One who realizes the Lord through the Guru, comprehends the three worlds. He subdues his desires, and struggles with his mind. Those who serve You, become just like You; O Fearless Lord, You are their best friend from infancy. || 4 || You Yourself are the heavenly realms, this world and the nether regions of the underworld. You Yourself are the embodiment of light, forever young. With matted hair, and a horrible, dreadful form, still, You have no form or feature. || 5 || The Vedas and the Bible do not know the mystery of God Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. He has no mother, father, child or brother. He created all the mountains, and levels them again; the Unseen Lord cannot be seen. || 6 || I have grown weary of making so many friends. No one can rid me of my sins and mistakes. God is the Supreme Lord and Master of all the angels and mortal beings; blessed with His Love, their fear is dispelled. || 7 || He puts back on the Path those who have wandered and strayed. You Yourself make them stray, and You teach them again. I cannot see anything except the Name.
Through the Name Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница comes salvation and merit. || 8 || The Ganges, the Jamunaa where Krishna played, Kaydar Naat’h, Benares, Kanchivaram, Puri, Dwaarkaa, Ganga Saagar where the Ganges empties into the ocean, Trivaynee where the three rivers come together, and the sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage, are all merged in the Lord’s Being. || 9 || He Himself is the Siddha, the seeker, in meditative contemplation. He Himself is the King and the Council. God Himself, the wise Judge, sits on the throne; He takes away doubt, duality and fear. || 10 || He Himself is the Qazi; He Himself is the Mullah. He Himself is infallible; He never makes mistakes Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. He Himself is the Giver of Grace, compassion and honor; He is no one’s enemy. || 11 || Whoever He forgives, He blesses with glorious greatness. He is the Giver of all; He does not have even an iota of greed. The Immaculate Lord is all pervading, permeating everywhere, both hidden and manifest. || 12 || How can I praise the inaccessible, infinite Lord? The True Creator Lord is the Enemy of ego. He unites those whom He blesses with His Grace; uniting them in His Union, they are united. || 13 || Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva stand at His Door; they serve the unseen, infinite Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница Lord. Millions of others can be seen crying at His door; I cannot even estimate their numbers. || 14 || True is the Kirtan of His Praise, and True is the Word of His Bani. I can see no other in the Vedas and the Puraanas. Truth is my capital; I sing the Glorious Praises of the True Lord. I have no other support at all. || 15 || In each and every age, the True Lord is, and shall always be. Who has not died? Who shall not die? Nanak the lowly offers this prayer; see Him within your own self, and lovingly focus on Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the Lord. || 16 || 2 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: In duality and evil-mindedness, the soul-bride is blind and deaf. She wears the dress of sexual desire and anger. Her Husband Lord is within the home of her own heart, but she does not know Him; without her Husband Lord, she cannot go to sleep. || 1 || The great fire of desire blazes within her. The self-willed manmukh looks around in the four directions. Without serving the True Guru, how can she find peace? Glorious greatness rests in the hands of the True Lord. || 2 || Eradicating sexual desire, anger and egotism, she Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница destroys the five thieves through the Word of the Shabad. Taking up the sword of spiritual wisdom, she struggles with her mind, and hope and desire are smoothed over in her mind. || 3 || From the union of the mother’s egg and the father’s sperm, the form of infinite beauty has been created. The blessings of light all come from You; You are the Creator Lord, pervading everywhere. || 4 || You have created birth and death. Why should anyone fear, if they come to understand through the Guru? When You, O Merciful Lord, look with Your kindness, then pain and Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница suffering leave the body. || 5 || One who sits in the home of his own self, eats his own fears. He quiets and holds his wandering mind still. His heart-lotus blossoms forth in the overflowing green pool, and the Lord of his soul becomes his companion and helper. || 6 || With their death already ordained, mortals come into this world. How can they remain here? They have to go to the world beyond. True is the Lord’s Command; the true ones dwell in the eternal city. The True Lord blesses them with glorious greatness. || 7 || He Himself created the whole world.
The One who made Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница it, assigns the tasks to it. I cannot see any other above the True Lord. The True Lord does the appraisal. || 8 || In this green pasture, the mortal stays only a few days. He plays and frolics in utter darkness. The jugglers have staged their show, and left, like people mumbling in a dream. || 9 || They alone are blessed with glorious greatness at the Lord’s throne, who enshrine the fearless Lord in their minds, and lovingly center themselves on Him. In the galaxies and solar systems, nether regions, celestial realms and the three worlds, the Lord is in Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the primal void of deep absorption. || 10 || True is the village, and true is the throne, of those Gurmukhs who meet with the True Lord, and find peace. In Truth, seated upon the true throne, they are blessed with glorious greatness; their egotism is eradicated, along with the calculation of their account. || 11 || Calculating its account, the soul becomes anxious. How can one find peace, through duality and the three gunas — the three qualities? The One Lord is immaculate and formless, the Great Giver; through the Perfect Guru, honor is obtained. || 12 || In each and every age, very rare are those who, as Gurmukh Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница, realize the Lord. Their minds are imbued with the True, all-pervading Lord. Seeking His Shelter, they find peace, and their minds and bodies are not stained with filth. || 13 || Their tongues are imbued with the True Lord, the source of nectar; abiding with the Lord God, they have no fear or doubt. Hearing the Word of the Guru’s Bani, their ears are satisfied, and their light merges into the Light. || 14 || Carefully, carefully, I place my feet upon the ground. Wherever I go, I behold Your Sanctuary. Whether You grant me pain or pleasure, You are pleasing to Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница my mind. I am in harmony with You. || 15 || No one is anyone’s companion or helper at the very last moment; as Gurmukh, I realize You and praise You. O Nanak, imbued with the Naam, I am detached; in the home of my own self deep within, I am absorbed in the primal void of deep meditation. || 16 || 3 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: From the very beginning of time, and throughout the ages, You are infinite and incomparable. You are my primal, immaculate Lord and Master. I contemplate the Way of Yoga, the Way of Union with the True Lord. I Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница am truly absorbed in the primal void of deep meditation. || 1 || For so many ages, there was only pitch darkness; the Creator Lord was absorbed in the primal void. There was the True Name, the glorious greatness of the Truth, and the glory of His true throne. || 2 || In the Golden Age of Truth, Truth and contentment filled the bodies. Truth was pervasive, Truth, deep, profound and unfathomable. The True Lord appraises the mortals on the Touchstone of Truth, and issues His True Command. || 3 || The Perfect True Guru is true and contented. He alone is a spiritual hero, who believes in the Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница Word of the Guru’s Shabad. He alone obtains a true seat in the True Court of the Lord, who surrenders to the Command of the Commander. || 4 || In the Golden Age of Truth, everyone spoke the Truth. Truth was pervasive — the Lord was Truth. With Truth in their minds and mouths, mortals were rid of doubt and fear. Truth was the friend of the Gurmukhs. || 5 || In the Silver Age of Traytaa Yoga, one power of Dharma was lost. Three feet remained; through duality, one was cut off. Those who were Gurmukh spoke the Truth, while the self Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница-willed manmukhs wasted away in vain. || 6 || The manmukh never succeeds in the Court of the Lord. Without the Word of the Shabad, how can one be pleased within? In bondage they come, and in bondage they go; they understand and comprehend nothing. || 7 || In the Brass Age of Dwaapur Yuga, compassion was cut in half.
Only a few, as Gurmukh, remembered the Lord. Dharmic faith, which upholds and supports the earth, had only two feet; Truth was revealed to the Gurmukhs. || 8 || The kings acted righteously only out of self-interest. Tied to hopes of reward, they gave to charities. Without Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the Lord’s Name, liberation did not come, although they grew weary of performing rituals. || 9 || Practicing religious rituals, they sought liberation, but the treasure of liberation comes only by praising the Shabad. Without the Word of the Guru’s Shabad, liberation is not obtained; practicing hypocrisy, they wander around confused. || 10 || Love and attachment to Maya cannot be abandoned. They alone find release, who practice deeds of Truth. Day and night, the devotees remain imbued with contemplative meditation; they become just like their Lord and Master. || 11 || Some chant and practice intensive meditation, and take cleansing baths at sacred shrines of pilgrimage. They walk Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница as You will them to walk. By stubborn rituals of self-suppression, the Lord is not pleased. No one has ever obtained honor, without the Lord, without the Guru. || 12 || In the Iron Age, the Dark Age of Kali Yuga, only one power remains. Without the Perfect Guru, no one has even described it. The self-willed manmukhs have staged the show of falsehood. Without the True Guru, doubt does not depart. || 13 || The True Guru is the Creator Lord, independent and carefree. He does not fear death, and He is not dependent on mortal men. Whoever serves Him becomes immortal Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница and imperishable, and will not be tortured by death. || 14 || The Creator Lord has enshrined Himself within the Guru. The Gurmukh saves countless millions. The Life of the World is the Great Giver of all beings. The Fearless Lord has no filth at all. || 15 || Everyone begs from the Guru, God’s Treasurer. He Himself is the immaculate, unknowable, infinite Lord. Nanak speaks the Truth; he begs from God. Please bless me with the Truth, by Your Will. || 16 || 4 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: The True Lord unites with those who are united with the Word of the Shabad. When it pleases Him, we Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница intuitively merge with Him. The Light of the Transcendent Lord pervades the three worlds; there is no other at all, O Siblings of Destiny. || 1 || I am His servant; I serve Him. He is unknowable and mysterious; He is pleased by the Shabad. The Creator is the Benefactor of His devotees. He forgives them — such is His greatness. || 2 || The True Lord gives and gives; His blessings never run short. The false ones receive, and then deny having received. They do not understand their origins, they are not pleased with the Truth, and so they wander in duality and doubt Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. || 3 || The Gurmukhs remain awake and aware, day and night. Following the Guru’s Teachings, they know the Love of the True Lord. The self-willed manmukhs remain asleep, and are plundered. The Gurmukhs remain safe and sound, O Siblings of Destiny. || 4 || The false come, and the false go; imbued with falsehood, they practice only falsehood. Those who are imbued with the Shabad are robed in honor in the Court of the Lord; the Gurmukhs focus their consciousness on Him. || 5 || The false are cheated, and robbed by the robbers. The garden is laid waste, like the rough wilderness Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. Without the Naam, the Name of the Lord, nothing tastes sweet; forgetting the Lord, they suffer in sorrow. || 6 || Receiving the food of Truth, one is satisfied. True is the glorious greatness of the jewel of the Name. One who understands his own self, realizes the Lord.
His light merges into the Light. || 7 || Wandering from the Name, he endures beatings. Even great cleverness does not dispel doubt. The unconscious fool does not remain conscious of the Lord; he putrifies and rots away to death, carrying his heavy load of sin. || 8 || No one is free of conflict and strife. Show me anyone who Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница is, and I will praise him. Dedicating mind and body to God, one meets the Lord, the Life of the World, and becomes just like Him. || 9 || No one knows the state and extent of God. Whoever calls himself great, will be eaten by his greatness. There is no lack of gifts of our True Lord and Master. He created all. || 10 || Great is the glorious greatness of the independent Lord. He Himself created, and gives sustanance to all. The Merciful Lord is not far away; the Great Giver spontaneously unites with Himself, by His Will. || 11 || Some are sad, and some are Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница afflicted with disease. Whatever God does, He does by Himself. Through loving devotion, and the Perfect Teachings of the Guru, the unstruck sound current of the Shabad is realized. || 12 || Some wander and roam around, hungry and naked. Some act in stubbornness and die, but do not know the value of God. They do not know the difference between good and bad; this is understood only through the practice of the Word of the Shabad. || 13 || Some bathe at sacred shrines and refuse to eat. Some torment their bodies in burning fire. Without the Lord’s Name, liberation is not obtained Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница; how can anyone cross over? || 14 || Abandoning the Guru’s Teachings, some wander in the wilderness. The self-willed manmukhs are destitute; they do not meditate on the Lord. They are ruined, destroyed and drowned from practicing falsehood; death is the enemy of the false. || 15 || By the Hukam of the Lord’s Command, they come, and by the Hukam of His Command, they go. One who realizes His Hukam, merges in the True Lord. O Nanak, he merges in the True Lord, and his mind is pleased with the Lord. The Gurmukhs do His work. || 16 || 5 || MARU, FIRST Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница MEHL: He Himself is the Creator Lord, the Architect of Destiny. He evaluates those whom He Himself has created. He Himself is the True Guru, and He Himself is the servant; He Himself created the Universe. || 1 || He is near at hand, not far away. The Gurmukhs understand Him; perfect are those humble beings. Associating with them night and day is profitable. This is the glorious greatness of associating with the Guru. || 2 || Throughout the ages, Your Saints are holy and sublime, O God. They sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, savoring it with their tongues. They chant His Praises, and their Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница pain and poverty are taken away; they are not afraid of anyone else. || 3 || They remain awake and aware, and do not appear to sleep. They serve up Truth, and so save their companions and relatives. They are not stained with the filth of sinful residues; they are immaculate and pure, and remain absorbed in loving devotional worship. || 4 || O humble servants of the Lord, understand the Word of the Guru’s Bani. This youth, breath and body shall pass away. O mortal, you shall die today or tomorrow; chant, and meditate on the Lord within your heart. || 5 || O Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница mortal, abandon falsehood and your worthless ways. Death viciously kills the false beings. The faithless cynic is ruined through falsehood and his egotistical mind.
On the path of duality, he rots away and decomposes. || 6 || Abandon slander and envy of others. Reading and studying, they burn, and do not find tranquility. Joining the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, praise the Naam, the Name of the Lord. The Lord, the Supreme Soul, shall be your helper and companion. || 7 || Abandon sexual desire, anger and wickedness. Abandon your involvement in egotistical affairs and conflicts. If you seek the Sanctuary of the True Guru, then you Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница shall be saved. In this way you shall cross over the terrifying world-ocean, O Siblings of Destiny. || 8 || In the hereafter, you shall have to cross over the fiery river of poisonous flames. No one else will be there; your soul shall be all alone. The ocean of fire spits out waves of searing flames; the self-willed manmukhs fall into it, and are roasted there. || 9 || Liberation comes from the Guru; He grants this blessing by the Pleasure of His Will. He alone knows the way, who obtains it. So ask one who has obtained it, O Siblings of Destiny Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. Serve the True Guru, and find peace. || 10 || Without the Guru, he dies entangled in sin and corruption. The Messenger of Death smashes his head and humiliates him. The slanderous person is not freed of his bonds; he is drowned, slandering others. || 11 || So speak the Truth, and realize the Lord deep within. He is not far away; look, and see Him. No obstacles shall block your way; become Gurmukh, and cross over to the other side. This is the way to cross over the terrifying world-ocean. || 12 || The Naam, the Name of the Lord, abides deep within the body Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. The Creator Lord is eternal and imperishable. The soul does not die, and it cannot be killed; God creates and watches over all. Through the Word of the Shabad, His Will is manifest. || 13 || He is immaculate, and has no darkness. The True Lord Himself sits upon His throne. The faithless cynics are bound and gagged, and forced to wander in reincarnation. They die, and are reborn, and continue coming and going. || 14 || The Guru’s servants are the Beloveds of the True Guru. Contemplating the Shabad, they sit upon His throne. They realize the essence of reality, and know Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the state of their inner being. This is the true glorious greatness of those who join the Sat Sangat. || 15 || He Himself saves His humble servant, and saves his ancestors as well. His companions are liberated; He carries them across. Nanak is the servant and slave of that Gurmukh who lovingly focuses his consciousness on the Lord. || 16 || 6 || MARU, FIRST MEHL: For many ages, only darkness prevailed; the infinite, endless Lord was absorbed in the primal void. He sat alone and unaffected in absolute darkness; the world of conflict did not exist. || 1 || Thirty-six ages passed like this. He causes Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница all to happen by the Pleasure of His Will. No rival of His can be seen. He Himself is infinite and endless. || 2 || God is hidden throughout the four ages — understand this well. He pervades each and every heart, and is contained within the belly. The One and Only Lord prevails throughout the ages. How rare are those who contemplate the Guru, and understand this. || 3 || From the union of the sperm and the egg, the body was formed. From the union of air, water and fire, the soul is made. He Himself plays joyfully in the mansion of the body; all Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница the rest is just attachment to Maya’s expanse. || 4 || Within the mother’s womb, upside-down, the mortal meditated on God. The Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts, knows everything.
With each and every breath, he contemplated the True Name, deep within himself, within the womb. || 5 || He came into the world to obtain the four great blessings. He came to dwell in the home of the Shiva and Shakti, energy and matter. But he forgot the One Lord, and he has lost the game. The blind person forgets the Naam, the Name of the Lord. || 6 || The child dies in his childish Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница games. They cry and mourn, saying that he was such a playful child. The Lord who owns him has taken him back. Those who weep and mourn are mistaken. || 7 || What can they do, if he dies in his youth? They cry out, “His is mine, he is mine!” They cry for the sake of Maya, and are ruined; their lives in this world are cursed. || 8 || Their black hair eventually turns grey. Without the Name, they lose their wealth, and then leave. They are evil-minded and blind — they are totally ruined; they are plundered, and cry out in Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница pain. || 9 || One who understands himself, does not cry. When he meets the True Guru, then he understands. Without the Guru, the heavy, hard doors are not opened. Obtaining the Word of the Shabad, one is emancipated. || 10 || The body grows old, and is beaten out of shape. But he does not meditate on the Lord, His only friend, even at the end. Forgetting the Naam, the Name of the Lord, he departs with his face blackened. The false are humiliated in the Court of the Lord. || 11 || Forgetting the Naam, the false ones depart. Coming and going, dust falls on Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница their heads. The soul-bride finds no home in her in-laws’ home, the world hereafter; she suffers in agony in this world of her parents’ home. || 12 || She eats, dresses and plays joyfully, but without loving devotional worship of the Lord, she dies uselessly. One who does not distinguish between good and evil, is beaten by the Messenger of Death; how can anyone escape this? || 13 || One who realizes what he has to possess, and what he has to abandon, associating with the Guru, comes to know the Word of the Shabad, within the home of his own self Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница. Do not call anyone else bad; follow this way of life. Those who are true are judged to be genuine by the True Lord. || 14 || Without Truth, no one succeeds in the Court of the Lord. Through the True Shabad, one is robed in honor. He forgives those with whom He is pleased; they silence their egotism and pride. || 15 || One who realizes the Hukam of God’s Command, by the Grace of the Guru, comes to know the lifestyle of the ages. O Nanak, chant the Naam, and cross over to the other side. The True Lord will carry you across. || 16 || 1 || 7 || MARU Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница, FIRST MEHL: I have no other friend like the Lord. He gave me body and mind, and infused consciousness into my being. He cherishes and cares for all beings; He is deep within, the wise, all-knowing Lord. || 1 || The Guru is the sacred pool, and I am His beloved swan. In the ocean, there are so many jewels and rubies. The Lord’s Praises are pearls, gems and diamonds. Singing His Praises, my mind and body are drenched with His Love. || 2 || The Lord is inaccessible, inscrutable, unfathomable and unattached. The Lord’s limits cannot be found; the Guru is the Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница Lord of the World. Through the Teachings of the True Guru, the Lord carries us across to the other side. He unites in His Union those who are colored by His Love. || 3 || Without the True Guru, how can anyone be liberated? He has been the Friend of the Lord, from the very beginning of time, and all throughout the ages.
By His Grace, He grants liberation in His Court; He forgives them for their sins. || 4 || The True Guru, the Giver, grants liberation; all diseases are eradicated, and one is blessed with the Ambrosial Nectar. Death, the tax collector, does Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница not impose any tax on one whose inner fire has been put out, whose heart is cool and tranquil. || 5 || The body has developed a great love for the soul-swan. He is a Yogi, and she is a beautiful woman. Day and night, he enjoys her with delight, and then he arises and departs without consulting her. || 6 || Creating the Universe, God remains diffused throughout it. In the wind, water and fire, He vibrates and resounds. The mind wavers, keeping company with evil passions; one obtains the rewards of his own actions. || 7 || Forgetting the Naam, one suffers the misery Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница of his evil ways. When the order to depart is issued, how can he remain here? He falls into the pit of hell, and suffers like a fish out of water. || 8 || The faithless cynic has to endure 8.4 million hellish incarnations. As he acts, so does he suffer. Without the True Guru, there is no liberation. Bound and gagged by his own actions, he is helpless. || 9 || This path is very narrow, like the sharp edge of a sword. When his account is read, he shall be crushed like the sesame seed in the mill. Mother, father, spouse and Singh Sahib Sant Singh Khalsa, MD 105 страница child — none is anyone’s friend in the end. Without the Lord’s Love, no one is liberated. || 10 || You may have many friends and companions in the world, but without the Guru, the Transcendent Lord Incarnate, there is no one at all.
