    Siree Raag, First Mehl:
    As metal merges with metal, those who chant the Praises of the Lord are absorbed into the Praiseworthy Lord.
    Like the poppies, they are dyed in the deep crimson color of Truthfulness.
    Those contented souls who meditate on the Lord with single-minded love, meet the True Lord. ||1||
    O Siblings of Destiny, become the dust of the feet of the humble Saints.
    In the Society of the Saints, the Guru is found. He is the Treasure of Liberation, the Source of all good fortune. ||1||Pause||
    Upon that Highest Plane of Sublime Beauty, stands the Mansion of the Lord.
    By true actions, this human body is obtained, and the door within ourselves which leads to the Mansion of the Beloved, is found.
    The Gurmukhs train their minds to contemplate the Lord, the Supreme Soul. ||2||
    By actions committed under the influence of the three qualities, hope and anxiety are produced.
    Without the Guru, how can anyone be released from these three qualities? Through intuitive wisdom, we meet with Him and find peace.
    Within the home of the self, the Mansion of His Presence is realized when He bestows His Glance of Grace and washes away our pollution. ||3||
    Without the Guru, this pollution is not removed. Without the Lord, how can there be any homecoming?
    Contemplate the One Word of the Shabad, and abandon other hopes.
    O Nanak, I am forever a sacrifice to the one who beholds, and inspires others to behold Him. ||4||12||
