Page 1148/1149 Adi Granth (Guru Granth, Sikh Scriptures, Khalsa Consensus Translation)
As Gurmukh, I chant the Name of the Lord. My anxiety is gone, and I am in love with the Naam, the Name of the Lord. I was asleep for countless lifetimes, but I have now awakened. || 1 || Granting His Grace, He has linked me to His service. In the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, all pleasures are found. || 1 || Pause || The Word of the Guru’s Shabad has eradicated disease and evil. My mind has absorbed the medicine of the Naam. Meeting with the Guru, my mind is in bliss. All treasures are in the Name of the Lord God. || 2 || My fear of birth and death and the Messenger of Death has been dispelled. In the Saadh Sangat, the inverted lotus of my heart has blossomed forth. Singing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, I have found eternal, abiding peace. All my tasks are perfectly accomplished. || 3 || This human body, so difficult to obtain, is approved by the Lord. Chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, it has become fruitful. Says Nanak, God has blessed me with His Mercy. With every breath and morsel of food, I meditate on the Lord, Har, Har. || 4 || 29 || 42 || BHAIRAO, FIFTH MEHL: His Name is the Highest of all. Sing His Glorious Praises, forever and ever. Meditating in remembrance on Him, all pain is dispelled. All pleasures come to dwell in the mind. || 1 || O my mind, meditate in remembrance on the True Lord. In this world and the next, you shall be saved. || 1 || Pause || The Immaculate Lord God is the Creator of all. He gives sustenance to all beings and creatures. He forgives millions of sins and mistakes in an instant. Through loving devotional worship, one is emancipated forever. || 2 || True wealth and true glorious greatness, and eternal, unchanging wisdom, are obtained from the Perfect Guru. When the Protector, the Savior Lord, bestows His Mercy, all spiritual darkness is dispelled. || 3 || I focus my meditation on the Supreme Lord God. The Lord of Nirvaanaa is totally pervading and permeating all. Eradicating doubt and fear, I have met the Lord of the World. The Guru has become merciful to Nanak. || 4 || 30 || 43 || BHAIRAO, FIFTH MEHL: Meditating in remembrance on Him, the mind is illumined. Suffering is eradicated, and one comes to dwell in peace and poise. They alone receive it, unto whom God gives it. They are blessed to serve the Perfect Guru. || 1 || All peace and comfort are in Your Name, God. Twenty-four hours a day, O my mind, sing His Glorious Praises. || 1 || Pause || You shall receive the fruits of your desires, when the Name of the Lord comes to dwell in the mind. Meditating on the Lord, your comings and goings cease. Through loving devotional worship, lovingly focus your attention on God. || 2 || Sexual desire, anger and egotism are dispelled. Love and attachment to Maya are broken. Lean on God’s Support, day and night. The Supreme Lord God has given this gift. || 3 || Our Lord and Master is the Creator, the Cause of causes. He is the Inner-knower, the Searcher of all hearts. Bless me with Your Grace, Lord, and link me to Your service. Slave Nanak has come to Your Sanctuary. || 4 || 31 || 44 || BHAIRAO, FIFTH MEHL: One who does not repeat the Naam, the Name of the Lord, shall die of shame. Without the Name, how can he ever sleep in peace?
The mortal abandons meditative remembrance of the Lord, and then wishes for the state of supreme salvation; but without roots, how can there be any branches? || 1 || O my mind, meditate on the Guru, the Lord of the Universe. The filth of countless incarnations shall be washed away. Breaking your bonds, you shall be united with the Lord.
