॥ ਮਃ ੨ ॥

ਮਨਹਠਿ ਤਰਫ ਨ ਜਿਪਈ   ਜੇ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਘਾਲੇ ॥

Stubborn-mindedness will not win the Lord to one’s side, no matter how much it is tried.

The Lord is won over to your side, by offering Him your true love, O servant Nanak and contemplating the Word of the Shabad. || 4 ||


The Creator created the world; He alone understands it. He Himself created the Universe, and He Himself shall destroy it afterwards.

All have grown weary of wandering throughout the four ages, but none knows the Lord’s worth.

The True Guru has shown me the One Lord, and my mind and body are at peace.

The Gurmukh praises the Lord forever; that alone happens, which the Creator Lord does. || 7 ||


Waah! Waah! You are wonderful and great, O Lord and Master ! You created the creation, and made us.

You made the waters, waves, oceans, pools, plants, clouds and mountains.

You Yourself stand in the midst of what You Yourself created.

The selfless service of the Gurmukhs is approved; in celestial peace, they live the essence of reality.

They receive the wages of their labor, begging at the Door of their Lord and Master.

O Nanak ! the Court of the Lord is overflowing and carefree; O my True Carefree Lord ! no one returns empty-handed from Your Court. || 1 ||


The teeth are like brilliant, beautiful pearls, and the eyes are like sparkling jewels.

Old age is their enemy, O Nanak! when they grow old, they waste away. || 2 ||
