MAAJH, THIRD MEHL:
The Nectar of the Guru’s Bani is very sweet.
Rare are the Gurmukhs who see and taste it.
The Divine Light dawns within, and the supreme essence is found.
In the True Court, the Word of the Shabad vibrates. || 1 ||
I am a sacrifice, my soul is a sacrifice, to those who focus their consciousness on the Guru’s Feet.
The True Guru is the True Pool of Nectar; bathing in it, the mind is washed clean of all filth. || 1 || Pause ||
Your limits, O True Lord! are not known to anyone.
Rare are those who, by Guru’s Grace, focus their consciousness on You.
Praising You, I am never satisfied; such is the hunger I feel for the True Name. || 2 ||
I see only the One, and no other.
By Guru’s Grace, I drink in the Ambrosial Nectar.
My thirst is quenched by the Word of the Guru’s Shabad; I am absorbed in intuitive peace and poise. || 3 ||
The Priceless Jewel is discarded like straw; the blind self-willed manmukhs are attached to the love of duality.
As they plant, so do they harvest.
They shall not obtain peace, even in their dreams. || 4 ||
Those who are blessed with His Mercy find the Lord.
The Word of the Guru’s Shabad abides in the mind.
Night and day, they remain in the Fear of God; conquering their fears, their doubts are dispelled. || 5 ||
Dispelling their doubts, they find a lasting peace.
By Guru’s Grace, the supreme status is attained.
Deep within, they are pure, and their words are pure as well; intuitively, they sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. || 6 ||
They recite the Simritees, the Shaastras and the Vedas, but deluded by doubt, they do not understand the essence of reality.
Without serving the True Guru, they find no peace; they earn only pain and misery. || 7 ||
The Lord Himself acts; unto whom should we complain?
How can anyone complain that the Lord has made a mistake?
O Nanak ! the Lord Himself does, and causes things to be done; chanting the Naam, we are absorbed in the Naam. || 8 || 7 || 8 ||
