JAITSREE, FOURTH MEHL
, FIRST HOUSE, CHAU-PADAS
ONE UNIVERSAL CREATOR GOD.
BY THE GRACE OF THE TRUE GURU
The Jewel of the Lordís Name abides within my heart;
the Guru has placed His hand on my forehead.
The sins and pains of countless incarnations have been cast out.
The Guru has blessed me with the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and my debt has been paid off.
|| 1 ||
O my mind, vibrate the Lordís Name, and all your affairs shall be resolved.
The Perfect Guru has implanted the Lordís Name within me;
without the Name, life is useless.
|| Pause ||
Without the Guru, the self-willed manmukhs are foolish and ignorant;
they are forever entangled in emotional attachment to Maya.
They never serve the feet of the Holy;
their lives are totally useless.
|| 2 ||
Those who serve at the feet of the Holy, the feet of the Holy, their lives are made fruitful, and they belong to the Lord.
Make me the slave of the slave of the slaves of the Lord;
bless me with Your Mercy, O Lord of the Universe.
|| 3 ||
I am blind, ignorant and totally without wisdom;
how can I walk on the Path?
I am blind ó O Guru, please let me grasp the hem of Your robe, so that servant Nanak may walk in harmony with You.
