      ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸੁਖ ਫਲੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗੁ ਮਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਕਰਨਿ ਉਦਾਸੀ ।
      guramukhi sukh dhalu saadhasangu maaiaa andari karani udaasee|
      Gumukhs get pleasure in the company of saints. They remain indifferent to maya though they live in it.

      ਜਿਉ ਜਲ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਕਵਲੁ ਹੈ ਸੂਰਜ ਧਾਨੁ ਅਗਾਸੁ ਨਿਵਾਸੀ ।
      jiu jal andari kavalu hai sooraj dhaanu agaasu nivaasee|
      As a lotus, which remains in water and yet keep its gaze fixed towards the sun, gurmukhs always keep their consciousness attuned to the Lord.

      ਚੰਦਨੁ ਸਪੀਂ ਵੇੜਿਆ ਸੀਤਲੁ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਸੁਗੰਧਿ ਵਿਗਾਸੀ ।
      chandanu sapeen vayrhiaa seetalu saanti sugandhi vigaasee|
      The sandalwood remains entwined by snakes but still it spreads cool and peace-producing fragrance all around.

      ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਵਿਚਿ ਸਬਦ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਲਿਵ ਸਹਜਿ ਬਿਲਾਸੀ ।
      saadhasangati sansaar vichi sabad surati|iv sahaji bilaasee|
      Gurmukhs living in the world, through the company of the saints keeping the consciousness attuned to the Word, move around in equipoise.
