Interpretation in English :
SORATíH, FIRST MEHL
The son is dear to his mother and father;
he is the wise son-in-law to his father-in-law.
The father is dear to his son and daughter, and the brother is very dear to his brother.
By the Order of the Lordís Command, he leaves his house and goes outside, and in an instant, everything becomes alien to him.
The self-willed manmukh does not remember the Name of the Lord, does not give in charity, and does not cleanse his consciousness;
his body rolls in the dust.
|| 1 ||
The mind is comforted by the Comforter of the Naam.
I fall at the Guruís feet ó I am a sacrifice to Him;
He has given me to understand the true understanding.
|| Pause ||
The mind is impressed with the false love of the world;
he quarrels with the Lordís humble servant.
Infatuated with Maya, night and day, he sees only the worldly path;
he does not chant the Naam, and drinking poison, he dies.
He is imbued and infatuated with vicious talk;
the Word of the Shabad does not come into his consciousness.
He is not imbued with the Lordís Love, and he is not impressed by the taste of the Name;
the self-willed manmukh loses his honor.
|| 2 ||
He does not enjoy celestial peace in the Company of the Holy, and there is not even a bit of sweetness on his tongue.
He calls his mind, body and wealth his own;
he has no knowledge of the Court of the Lord.
Closing his eyes, he walks in darkness;
he cannot see the home of his own being, O Siblings of Destiny.
Tied up at Deathís door, he finds no place of rest;
he receives the rewards of his own actions.
|| 3 ||
When the Lord casts His Glance of Grace, then I see Him with my own eyes;
He is indescribable, and cannot be described.
With my ears, I continually listen to the Word of the Shabad, and I praise Him;
His Ambrosial Name abides within my heart.
He is Fearless, Formless and absolutely without vengeance;
I am absorbed in His Perfect Light.
O Nanak, without the Guru, doubt is not dispelled;
through the True Name, glorious greatness is obtained.
