Maya Moh Magan Andhiareh | Guru Granth Sahib about Selfish Person

ਸੋਰਠਿ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹ ਮਗਨੁ ਅੰਧਿਆਰੈ ਦੇਵਨਹਾਰੁ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ॥ ਜੀਉ ਪਿੰਡੁ ਸਾਜਿ ਜਿਨਿ ਰਚਿਆ ਬਲੁ ਅਪੁਨੋ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੈ ॥੧॥
Sorath Mahala – 5 (Maya moh magan andhiareh )
The foolish self-willed person has forgotten the Lord- benefactor, being engrossed in the love of the worldly falsehood and the darkness of ignorance. Such a person takes the credit for all his upbringing due to his own strength, while forsaking the Lord-Creator who has bestowed this life and strength on him. (1)

ਮਨ ਮੂੜੇ ਦੇਖਿ ਰਹਿਓ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸੁਆਮੀ ॥ ਜੋ ਕਿਛੁ ਕਰਹਿ ਸੋਈ ਸੋਈ ਜਾਣੈ ਰਹੈ ਨ ਕਛੂਐ ਛਾਨੀ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
O foolish mind ! The True Master is watching all your actions (doings) and is in the know of all those acts committed by you in hiding, as nothing is hidden from the Lord who is omniscient. (Pause)

ਜਿਹਵਾ ਸੁਆਦ ਲੋਭ ਮਦਿ ਮਾਤੋ ਉਪਜੇ ਅਨਿਕ ਬਿਕਾਰਾ ॥ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਜੋਨਿ ਭਰਮਤ ਦੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਹਉਮੈ ਬੰਧਨ ਕੇ ਭਾਰਾ ॥੨॥
This foolish man is engrossed in the love of the worldly pleasures, greed and egoism, which has given birth to many vices and sinful actions, O fool ! You have suffered through many forms of life in the cycle of births and deaths, being bound in the chains of worldly bondage. (2)

ਦੇਇ ਕਿਵਾੜ ਅਨਿਕ ਪੜਦੇ ਮਹਿ ਪਰ ਦਾਰਾ ਸੰਗਿ ਫਾਕੈ ॥ ਚਿਤ੍ਰ ਗੁਪਤੁ ਜਬ ਲੇਖਾ ਮਾਗਹਿ ਤਬ ਕਉਣੁ ਪੜਦਾ ਤੇਰਾ ਢਾਕੈ ॥੩॥
O Man ! Whatever sinful actions you have committed in the company of another person’s wife, under closed doors and in great hiding, (secrecy) are known to the Lord, When the assistants, Chitar & Gupt, of the god of justice, would ask you to account for your actions, then who will cover up Your sins? (3)

ਦੀਨ ਦਇਆਲ ਪੂਰਨ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨ ਤੁਮ ਬਿਨੁ ਓਟ ਨ ਕਾਈ ॥ ਕਾਢਿ ਲੇਹੁ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਸਾਗਰ ਮਹਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਰਣਾਈ ॥੪॥੧੫॥੨੬॥ {ਪੰਨਾ 616}
The perfect Lord-benefactor, destroyer of our sufferings ! I have no other support except You. O Nanak ! May the Lord enable me to cross this ocean of life successfully, as I have sought His support only, (4-15-26)
