Interpretation in English :
DHANAASAREE, FIRST MEHL
The body is the paper, and the mind is the inscription written upon it.
The ignorant fool does not read what is written on his forehead.
In the Court of the Lord, three inscriptions are recorded.
Behold, the counterfeit coin is worthless there.
|| 1 ||
O Nanak, if there is silver in it, then everyone proclaims, “It is genuine, it is genuine.
” || 1 ||
Pause || The Qazi tells lies and eats filth;
the Brahmin kills and then takes cleansing baths.
The Yogi is blind, and does not know the Way.
The three of them devise their own destruction.
|| 2 ||
He alone is a Yogi, who understands the Way.
By Guru’s Grace, he knows the One Lord.
He alone is a Qazi, who turns away from the world, and who, by Guru’s Grace, remains dead while yet alive.
He alone is a Brahmin, who contemplates God.
He saves himself, and saves all his generations as well.
|| 3 ||
One who cleanses his own mind is wise.
One who cleanses himself of impurity is a Muslim.
One who reads and understands is acceptable.
Upon his forehead is the Insignia of the Court of the Lord.
