    The True Name is the Ambrosial Nectar; no one can describe it.

    The Gift of 'Naam' is in the Hands of the Great Giver. At the Guru's Door, in the Gurdwara, it is received.

    No Other Way- One has to surrender his/her mind and body to the Guru's Will, and has to accept God and Guru- the same.

    Siree Raag, First Mehl:
    Meditate on the Lord, Har, Har, O my beloved; follow the Guru's Teachings, and speak of the Lord.
    Apply the Touchstone of Truth to your mind, and see if it comes up to its full weight.
    No one has found the worth of the ruby of the heart; its value cannot be estimated. ||1||
    O Siblings of Destiny, the Diamond of the Lord is within the Guru.
    The True Guru is found in the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation. Day and night, praise the Word of His Shabad. ||1||Pause||
    The True Merchandise, Wealth and Capital are obtained through the Radiant Light of the Guru.
    Just as fire is extinguished by pouring on water, desire becomes the slave of the Lord's slaves.
    The Messenger of Death will not touch you; in this way, you shall cross over the terrifying world-ocean, carrying others across with you. ||2||
    The Gurmukhs do not like falsehood. They are imbued with Truth; they love only Truth.
    The shaaktas, the faithless cynics, do not like the Truth; false are the foundations of the false.
    Imbued with Truth, you shall meet the Guru. The true ones are absorbed into the True Lord. ||3||
    Within the mind are emeralds and rubies, the Jewel of the Naam, treasures and diamonds.
    The Naam is the True Merchandise and Wealth; in each and every heart, His Presence is deep and profound.
    O Nanak, the Gurmukh finds the Diamond of the Lord, by His Kindness and Compassion. ||4||21||

    By the teachings of the Guru many become disciples of the Guru, but some rare one becomes the Guru like that Guru.

    Vaar 13 Pauri 2 Making of the Guru by the Guru
    ਗੁਰ ਸਿਖਹੁ ਗੁਰ ਸਿਖੁ ਹੈ ਪੀਰ ਪੀਰਹੁ ਕੋਈ ।
    gur sikhahu gur sikhu hai peer peerahu koee|
    By the teachings of the Guru many become disciples of the Guru, but some rare one becomes the Guru like that Guru.
    ਸਬਦਿ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਚੇਲਾ ਗੁਰੂ ਪਰਮੇਸਰੁ ਸੋਈ ।
    sabadi surati chaylaa guroo paramaysaru soee|
    Only the practitioner of the word and consciousness can attain the status of Guru-God.
    ਦਰਸਨਿ ਦਿਸਟਿ ਧਿਆਨ ਧਰਿ ਗੁਰ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਹੋਈ ।
    darasani disati dhiaan dhari gur moorati hoee|
    Such a disciple concentrating on the philosophy of the Guru (and making it a part of daily conduct) himself becomes a likeness of Guru.
    ਸਬਦ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਕਰਿ ਕੀਰਤਨੁ ਸਤਿਸੰਗਿ ਵਿਲੋਈ ।
    sabad surati kari keeratanu satisangi viloee|
    Making his consciousness attentive to Word through recitation of Naam, he merges in the holy congregation.
    ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਰਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਹੈ ਜਪਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਖੋਈ ।
    vaahiguroo guramantr hai japi haumai khoee|
    His Guru-manta is Vahiguru, whose recitation erases egotism.

    ਆਪੁ ਗਵਾਏ ਆਪਿ ਹੈ ਗੁਣ ਗੁਣੀ ਪਰੋਈ ॥੨॥
    aapu gavaaay aapi hai gun gunee paroee ॥2॥
    Losing egotism and merging into the qualities of the supreme Lord, he himself becomes full of qualities.

    Siree Raag, Fifth Mehl:
    I fall at His Feet to please and appease Him.
    The True Guru has united me with the Lord, the Primal Being. There is no other as great as He. ||1||Pause||
    The Lord of the Universe is my Sweet Beloved.
    He is sweeter than my mother or father.
    Among all sisters and brothers and friends, there is no one like You. ||1||
    By Your Command, the month of Saawan has come.
    I have hooked up the plow of Truth,
    and I plant the seed of the Name in hopes that the Lord, in His Generosity, will bestow a bountiful harvest. ||2||
    Meeting with the Guru, I recognize only the One Lord.
    In my consciousness, I do not know of any other account.
    The Lord has assigned one task to me; as it pleases Him, I perform it. ||3||
    Enjoy yourselves and eat, O Siblings of Destiny.
    In the Guru's Court, He has blessed me with the Robe of Honor.
    I have become the Master of my body-village; I have taken the five rivals as prisoners. ||4||
    I have come to Your Sanctuary.
    The five farm-hands have become my tenants;
    none dare to raise their heads against me. O Nanak, my village is populous and prosperous. ||5||
    I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to You.
    I meditate on You continually.
    The village was in ruins, but You have re-populated it. I am a sacrifice to You. ||6||
    O Beloved Lord, I meditate on You continually;
    I obtain the fruits of my mind's desires.
    All my affairs are arranged, and the hunger of my mind is appeased. ||7||
    I have forsaken all my entanglements;
    I serve the True Lord of the Universe.
    I have firmly attached the Name, the Home of the Nine Treasures to my robe. ||8||
    I have obtained the comfort of comforts.
    The Guru has implanted the Word of the Shabad deep within me.
    The True Guru has shown me my Husband Lord; He has placed His Hand upon my forehead. ||9||
    I have established the Temple of Truth.
    I sought out the Guru's Sikhs, and brought them into it.
    I wash their feet, and wave the fan over them. Bowing low, I fall at their feet. ||10||
    I heard of the Guru, and so I went to Him.
    He instilled within me the Naam, the goodness of charity and true cleansing.
    All the world is liberated, O Nanak, by embarking upon the Boat of Truth. ||11||
    The whole Universe serves You, day and night.
    Please hear my prayer, O Dear Lord.
    I have thoroughly tested and seen all-You alone, by Your Pleasure, can save us. ||12||
    Now, the Merciful Lord has issued His Command.
    Let no one chase after and attack anyone else.
    Let all abide in peace, under this Benevolent Rule. ||13||
    Softly and gently, drop by drop, the Ambrosial Nectar trickles down.
    I speak as my Lord and Master causes me to speak.
    I place all my faith in You; please accept me. ||14||
    Your devotees are forever hungry for You.
    O Lord, please fulfill my desires.
    Grant me the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan, O Giver of Peace. Please, take me into Your Embrace. ||15||
    I have not found any other as Great as You.
    You pervade the continents, the worlds and the nether regions;
    You are permeating all places and interspaces. Nanak: You are the True Support of Your devotees. ||16||
    I am a wrestler; I belong to the Lord of the World.
    I met with the Guru, and I have tied a tall, plumed turban.
    All have gathered to watch the wrestling match, and the Merciful Lord Himself is seated to behold it. ||17||
    The bugles play and the drums beat.
    The wrestlers enter the arena and circle around.
    I have thrown the five challengers to the ground, and the Guru has patted me on the back. ||18||
    All have gathered together,
    but we shall return home by different routes.
    The Gurmukhs reap their profits and leave, while the self-willed manmukhs lose their investment and depart. ||19||
    You are without color or mark.
    The Lord is seen to be manifest and present.
    Hearing of Your Glories again and again, Your devotees meditate on You; they are attuned to You, O Lord, Treasure of Excellence. ||20||
    Through age after age, I am the servant of the Merciful Lord.
    The Guru has cut away my bonds.
    I shall not have to dance in the wrestling arena of life again. Nanak has searched, and found this opportunity. ||21||2||29||
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
