Raag Sri Raag M.5

Guru Ji advises all Sikhs to focus on Naam. As you sing His Praises, your mann gets cleansed of all dross, and you edge closer to the Lord.

Meditate only upon the Lord who is the Supreme Lord over all emperors and kings; place all your hopes in Him who is the Faith of all; give up all your clever tricks and fall at the Feet of the Guru (Shabad).

“Soyee dhiayeh jiarhey sirr Saha Patshah; Tis hi kar aas mann jis ka sabas vesah; sabh sianpa chadh ke Gur ki Charni pah.”

O my mind chant the Name with intuitive peace and love; twenty hours a day, meditate upon the Lord, and constantly sing His Praises.

“Mann mere sukh sahaj seti jap Naao; aath pahar Prabh dhiaye tu gunn Gobind nit gaao.”(rahao).

O my mind seek the Shelter of One who has none as Great as Him; meditating on Him you obtain profound peace, and pain and suffering do not trouble you at all; forever and forever be in the Service of the Lord, our True Master.

“Tis ki Sarni par manaa jis jevad avar na koye; jis simrat sukh hoye ghana dukh dardh na mulay hoye; sada sada kar chakri Prabh Sahib Sacha soye.”

In Sadhsanggat one gets purified and the noose of death is cut away; offer your prayers to the Giver of Peace, the Destroyer of fear; as the Merciful One Grants His Grace, your affairs are resolved.

“Sadhsanggat hoye nirmala katiye jamm ki faas; Sukhdata bhay bhanjno Tis aggay kar ardas; mehar kare jis Mehervan ta karaj aave raas.”

The Lord is the Greatest of the Great, and His Kingdom is the Highest of the High; He has no color or mark and His Worth can never be estimated; please be Merciful to Nanak. Bless me with Your Name.

“Bahuto bahut vakhaniye uche ucha thaoo; varna chehna bahra keemat kahe na sakaoo; Nanak ko Prabh mehya kar Sach devho Apna Naoo.”
