Wash your hands and cover your head before studying the contents. One Universal Creator God. Truth Is The Name. Image Of The Undying. If a hundred moons were to rise, and a thousand suns appeared. O Nanak, those who do not think of vzar Guru, and who think of themselves as clever. They are abandoned in the field, says Nanak, and they have a hundred masters to please. The wretches bear fruit and flower, but within their bodies, they are filled with ashes. Secondly, He fashioned the creation; seated within the creation, He beholds it with delight.

You are the Knower of all; You give life, and take it away again with a word. Seated within the creation, You behold it with delight.

In the True Lord is all power, in the True Lord is all might.

Those who are subject to birth and death are totally false. Great is His greatness, as He understands all our affections.

Asa di Var

Whatever He has done, or will do, is all by His Own Will. This world is the room of the True Lord; within it is the dwelling of the True Lord. Some, by the Pleasure of His Will, are lifted up out of Maya, while others are made to dwell within it.

O Nanak, he alone is known as Gurmukh, unto whom the Lord reveals Himself. O Nanak, having created the souls, the Lord installed the Righteous Judge of Dharma to read and record their accounts.

There, only the Truth is judged true; the sinners are picked out and separated. The false find no place there, and they go to hell with their faces blackened. Those who as imbued with Your Name win, while the cheaters lose. The Lord installed the Righteous Judge of Dharma to read and record the accounts. Wonderful is the sound current of the Naad, wonderful is the knowledge of the Vedas.

O Nanak, those who understand eglish are blessed with perfect destiny. By His Power the nether worlds exist, vaaar the Akaashic ethers; by His Power the entire creation exists. By His Power all deliberations exist. By His Power we eat, drink and dress; by His Power all love exists. By His Power virtues exist, and by His Power vices exist.

By His Power come honor and dishonor. By His Power wind, dii and fire exist; by His Power earth and dust exist. Your Name is the Holiest of the Holy.


Enjoying his pleasures, one is reduced to a pile of egnlish, and the soul passes away. He may be great, but when he dies, the chain is thrown around his neck, and he is led away. There, his good and bad deeds are added up; sitting there, his account is read. He is whipped, but finds no place of rest, and no one hears his cries of pain. In the Fear of God, the sun shines, and in the Fear of God, the moon reflects. In the Fear of God, the Akaashic ethers are stretched across the sky.

In the Fear of God, the warriors and the most powerful heroes exist. God has inscribed the Inscription of His Fear upon the heads of all.

O Nanak, the Lord is fearless and formless; myriads of others, like Rama, are mere dust before Him. There are so many stories of Krishna, so many who reflect over the Asw.

The magicians perform their magic in the market place, creating a false illusion. They wear earrings, and necklaces worth thousands of dollars. Those bodies on which they are worn, O Nanak, those bodies turn to ashes.

Wisdom cannot be found through mere words. To explain it is as hard as iron. When the Lord bestows His Grace, then alone it is received; other tricks and orders are useless.

This soul wandered through countless incarnations, until the True Guru instructed it in the Word of the Shabad. There is no giver as great as the True Guru; hear this, all you people. All the hours are the milk-maids, and the quarters of the day are the Krishnas.

The wind, water and fire are the ornaments; the sun and moon are the incarnations. All of the earth, property, wealth and articles are all entanglements. O Nanak, without divine knowledge, one is plundered, and devoured by the Messenger of Death.

The night of their lives is cool with dew; their minds are filled with love for the Lord. Those who dance and dance and laugh, shall weep on their ultimate departure.

O Nanak, those whose minds are filled with the Fear of God, have the love of God in their minds as well. Soul and body all belong to Him; asking Him to give us sustenance is a waste.

If you yearn for goodness, then perform good deeds and feel humble. Even if you remove the signs of old age, old age shall still come in the guise of death.

No one remains here when the count of the breaths is full. The Muslims praise the Islamic law; they read and reflect upon it. They bathe at sacred shrines of pilgrimage, making offerings of flowers, and burning incense before idols. But to the subtle image of the Immaculate Name, they apply the form of a body. In the minds of the virtuous, contentment is produced, thinking about their giving. They give and give, but ask a thousand-fold more, and hope that the world will honor them.

There are beings and creatures in the water and on the land, in the worlds i universes, form upon form. O Nanak, the hunger of the devotees is to praise You; the True Name is their only support. They live in eternal bliss, day and night; they are the dust of the feet of the virtuous. Pots and bricks are fashioned from it, and it cries out as it burns.

The poor clay burns, burns and weeps, as the fiery coals fall upon it. O Nanak, the Creator created the creation; the Creator Lord alone knows. Meeting the True Guru, eternal liberation is obtained; He has banished attachment from within.

Thus the Lord of the World, the Great Giver is obtained. In ego they love Maya, and in ego si are kept in darkness by it. This is the nature of ego, that people perform their actions in ego. This is the bondage of ego, that time and time again, they are reborn. Ego is a chronic disease, but it contains its own cure as well.

Nanak says, listen, people: Those who serve are content. They meditate on the Truest of the True. They do not place their feet in sin, but do good deeds and live righteously in Dharma.

They burn away the bonds of the world, and eat a simple diet of grain and water. You are the Great Forgiver; You give continually, more and more each day. Men, trees, sacred shrines of pilgrimage, banks of sacred rivers, clouds, fields. O Nanak, having created the living asz, He cherishes them all.

The Creator who created the creation, takes care of it as well. O Nanak, without the True Name, vaaar what use is the frontal mark of the Hindus, or their sacred thread? Hundreds of thousands of virtues and good actions, and hundreds of thousands of blessed charities.

O Nanak, all these things are false. True is the Insignia of His Grace. You alone are the True Lord. The Truth of Truths is pervading everywhere. He alone receives the Truth, unto whom You give it; then, he practices Truth. Meeting the True Guru, Truth is found. In His Heart, I is abiding.

The fools do not know the Truth. The self-willed ass waste their lives away in vain. You may read and read loads of books; you may read and study vast multitudes of books.
