Mundavani Mahala 5
(From Page 1429 Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji)
Thaal vich tin vastu paeeo sat santokh vichaaro.
Upon this Plate, three things have been placed: Truth, Contentment and Contemplation.
Amrit naam thaakur kaa paio jis kaa sabhas adhaaro.
The Ambrosial Nectar of the Naam, the Name of our Lord and Master, has been placed upon it as well; it is the Support of all.
Je ko khaavai je ko bhunchai tis ka hoye udhaaro.
One who eats it and enjoys it shall be saved.
Eh vasat tajee nah jaayi nit nit rakh ur dhaaro.
This thing can never be forsaken; keep this always and forever in your mind.
Tam sansaar charan lag tareeyai sabh nanak brahm pasaaro.
The dark world-ocean is crossed over, by grasping the Feet of the Lord; O Nanak, it is all the extension of God.
Salok mehlaa 5.
Tera keeta jaato naahi maino jog keetoyi.
I have not appreciated what You have done for me, Lord; only You can make me worthy.
Mai nirguniyare ko gun naahi aape taras paioee.
I am unworthy – I have no worth or virtues at all. You have taken pity on me.
Taras paaya mihraamat hoyi satgur sajan miliya.
You took pity on me, and blessed me with Your Mercy, and I have met the True Guru, my Friend.
Naanak naam milai taan jeeva tan man theevai hareyaa.
O Nanak, if I am blessed with the Naam, I live, and my body and mind blossom forth.
