    Re: Gurbani Paath Senthia Pothi 1

    Prologue : Once Baba Kaluji asked his son Guru Nanak Devji that how great is the Almighty whom you meditate upon. Guruji humbly prays before Almighty while answering to his father's question :

    ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ
    आसा महला १ ॥
    Āsā mėhlā 1.
    Aasaa, First Mehl:

    ਸੁਣਿ ਵਡਾ ਆਖੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਇ
    सुणि वडा आखै सभु कोइ ॥
    Suṇ vadā ākẖai sabẖ ko▫e.
    Hearing of His Greatness, everyone calls Him Great.

    ਕੇਵਡੁ ਵਡਾ ਡੀਠਾ ਹੋਇ
    केवडु वडा डीठा होइ ॥
    Kevad vadā dīṯẖā ho▫e.
    But just how Great His Greatness is-this is known only to those who have seen Him.

    ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਇ ਕਹਿਆ ਜਾਇ
    कीमति पाइ न कहिआ जाइ ॥
    Kīmaṯ pā▫e na kahi▫ā jā▫e.
    His Value cannot be estimated; He cannot be described.

    ਕਹਣੈ ਵਾਲੇ ਤੇਰੇ ਰਹੇ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੧॥
    कहणै वाले तेरे रहे समाइ ॥१॥
    Kahṇai vāle ṯere rahe samā▫e. ||1||
    Those who describe You, Lord, remain immersed and absorbed in You. ||1||

    ਵਡੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਸਾਹਿਬਾ ਗਹਿਰ ਗੰਭੀਰਾ ਗੁਣੀ ਗਹੀਰਾ
    वडे मेरे साहिबा गहिर ग्मभीरा गुणी गहीरा ॥
    vade mere sāhibā gahir gambẖīrā guṇī gahīrā.
    O my Great Lord and Master of Unfathomable Depth, You are the Ocean of Excellence.

    ਕੋਇ ਜਾਣੈ ਤੇਰਾ ਕੇਤਾ ਕੇਵਡੁ ਚੀਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ
    कोइ न जाणै तेरा केता केवडु चीरा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥
    Ko▫e na jāṇai ṯerā keṯā kevad cẖīrā. ||1|| rahā▫o.
    No one knows the extent or the vastness of Your Expanse. ||1||Pause||

    ਸਭਿ ਸੁਰਤੀ ਮਿਲਿ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਕਮਾਈ
    सभि सुरती मिलि सुरति कमाई ॥
    Sabẖ surṯī mil suraṯ kamā▫ī.
    All the intuitives met and practiced intuitive meditation.

    ਸਭ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਮਿਲਿ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਈ
    सभ कीमति मिलि कीमति पाई ॥
    Sabẖ kīmaṯ mil kīmaṯ pā▫ī.
    All the appraisers met and made the appraisal.

    ਗਿਆਨੀ ਧਿਆਨੀ ਗੁਰ ਗੁਰਹਾਈ
    गिआनी धिआनी गुर गुरहाई ॥
    Gi▫ānī ḏẖi▫ānī gur gurhā▫ī.
    The spiritual teachers, the teachers of meditation, and the teachers of teachers -

    ਕਹਣੁ ਜਾਈ ਤੇਰੀ ਤਿਲੁ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥੨॥
    कहणु न जाई तेरी तिलु वडिआई ॥२॥
    Kahaṇ na jā▫ī ṯerī ṯil vadi▫ā▫ī. ||2||
    they cannot describe even an iota of Your Greatness. ||2||

    ਸਭਿ ਸਤ ਸਭਿ ਤਪ ਸਭਿ ਚੰਗਿਆਈਆ
    सभि सत सभि तप सभि चंगिआईआ ॥
    Sabẖ saṯ sabẖ ṯap sabẖ cẖang▫ā▫ī▫ā.
    All Truth, all austere discipline, all goodness,

    ਸਿਧਾ ਪੁਰਖਾ ਕੀਆ ਵਡਿਆਈਆ
    सिधा पुरखा कीआ वडिआईआ ॥
    Siḏẖā purkẖā kī▫ā vaḏi▫ā▫ī▫ā.
    all the great miraculous spiritual powers of the Siddhas -

    ਤੁਧੁ ਵਿਣੁ ਸਿਧੀ ਕਿਨੈ ਪਾਈਆ
    तुधु विणु सिधी किनै न पाईआ ॥
    Ŧuḏẖ viṇ siḏẖī kinai na pā▫ī▫ā.
    without You, no one has attained such powers.

    ਕਰਮਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਠਾਕਿ ਰਹਾਈਆ ॥੩॥
    करमि मिलै नाही ठाकि रहाईआ ॥३॥
    Karam milai nāhī ṯẖāk rahā▫ī▫ā. ||3||
    They are received only by Your Grace. No one can block them or stop their flow. ||3||

    ਆਖਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਕਿਆ ਵੇਚਾਰਾ
    आखण वाला किआ वेचारा ॥
    Ākẖaṇ vālā ki▫ā vecẖārā.
    What can the poor helpless creatures do?

    ਸਿਫਤੀ ਭਰੇ ਤੇਰੇ ਭੰਡਾਰਾ
    सिफती भरे तेरे भंडारा ॥
    Sifṯī bẖare ṯere bẖandārā.
    Your Praises are overflowing with Your Treasures.

    ਜਿਸੁ ਤੂ ਦੇਹਿ ਤਿਸੈ ਕਿਆ ਚਾਰਾ
    जिसु तू देहि तिसै किआ चारा ॥
    Jis ṯū ḏėh ṯisai ki▫ā cẖārā.
    Those, unto whom You give-how can they think of any other?

    ਨਾਨਕ ਸਚੁ ਸਵਾਰਣਹਾਰਾ ॥੪॥੨॥
    नानक सचु सवारणहारा ॥४॥२॥
    Nānak sacẖ savāraṇhārā. ||4||2||
    O Nanak, the True One embellishes and exalts. ||4||2||

    Re: Gurbani Paath Senthia Pothi 1

    Prologue : Once Mata Triptaji asked Guru Nanak Devji, 'Dear Son, why are you uttering Almighty's name all the time whereas you should utter during certain time of the day during prayer like how other people practice.'

    Guruji answers,

    ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ
    आसा महला १ ॥
    Āsā mėhlā 1.
    Aasaa, First Mehl:

    ਆਖਾ ਜੀਵਾ ਵਿਸਰੈ ਮਰਿ ਜਾਉ
    आखा जीवा विसरै मरि जाउ ॥
    Ākẖā jīvā visrai mar jā▫o.
    Chanting it, I live; forgetting it, I die.

    ਆਖਣਿ ਅਉਖਾ ਸਾਚਾ ਨਾਉ
    आखणि अउखा साचा नाउ ॥
    Ākẖaṇ a▫ukẖā sācẖā nā▫o.
    It is so difficult to chant the True Name.

    ਸਾਚੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਲਾਗੈ ਭੂਖ
    साचे नाम की लागै भूख ॥
    Sācẖe nām kī lāgai bẖūkẖ.
    If someone feels hunger for the True Name,

    ਉਤੁ ਭੂਖੈ ਖਾਇ ਚਲੀਅਹਿ ਦੂਖ ॥੧॥
    उतु भूखै खाइ चलीअहि दूख ॥१॥
    Uṯ bẖūkẖai kẖā▫e cẖalī▫ahi ḏūkẖ. ||1||
    that hunger shall consume his pain. ||1||

    ਸੋ ਕਿਉ ਵਿਸਰੈ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਇ
    सो किउ विसरै मेरी माइ ॥
    So ki▫o visrai merī mā▫e.
    How can I forget Him, O my mother?

    ਸਾਚਾ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਾਚੈ ਨਾਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ
    साचा साहिबु साचै नाइ ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥
    Sācẖā sāhib sācẖai nā▫e. ||1|| rahā▫o.
    True is the Master, True is His Name. ||1||Pause||

    ਸਾਚੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਤਿਲੁ ਵਡਿਆਈ
    साचे नाम की तिलु वडिआई ॥
    Sācẖe nām kī ṯil vadi▫ā▫ī.
    Trying to describe even an iota of the Greatness of the True Name,

    ਆਖਿ ਥਕੇ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਪਾਈ
    आखि थके कीमति नही पाई ॥
    Ākẖ thake kīmaṯ nahī pā▫ī.
    people have grown weary, but they have not been able to evaluate it.

    ਜੇ ਸਭਿ ਮਿਲਿ ਕੈ ਆਖਣ ਪਾਹਿ
    जे सभि मिलि कै आखण पाहि ॥
    Je sabẖ mil kai ākẖaṇ pāhi.
    Even if everyone were to gather together and speak of Him,

    ਵਡਾ ਹੋਵੈ ਘਾਟਿ ਜਾਇ ॥੨॥
    वडा न होवै घाटि न जाइ ॥२॥
    vadā na hovai gẖāt na jā▫e. ||2||
    He would not become any greater or any lesser. ||2||

    ਨਾ ਓਹੁ ਮਰੈ ਹੋਵੈ ਸੋਗੁ
    ना ओहु मरै न होवै सोगु ॥
    Nā oh marai na hovai sog.
    That Lord does not die; there is no reason to mourn.

    ਦੇਦਾ ਰਹੈ ਚੂਕੈ ਭੋਗੁ
    देदा रहै न चूकै भोगु ॥
    Ḏeḏā rahai na cẖūkai bẖog.
    He continues to give, and His Provisions never run short.

    ਗੁਣੁ ਏਹੋ ਹੋਰੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਕੋਇ
    गुणु एहो होरु नाही कोइ ॥
    Guṇ eho hor nāhī ko▫e.
    This Virtue is His alone; there is no other like Him.

    ਨਾ ਕੋ ਹੋਆ ਨਾ ਕੋ ਹੋਇ ॥੩॥
    ना को होआ ना को होइ ॥३॥
    Nā ko ho▫ā nā ko ho▫e. ||3||
    There never has been, and there never will be. ||3||

    ਜੇਵਡੁ ਆਪਿ ਤੇਵਡ ਤੇਰੀ ਦਾਤਿ
    जेवडु आपि तेवड तेरी दाति ॥
    Jevad āp ṯevad ṯerī ḏāṯ.
    As Great as You Yourself are, O Lord, so Great are Your Gifts.

    ਜਿਨਿ ਦਿਨੁ ਕਰਿ ਕੈ ਕੀਤੀ ਰਾਤਿ
    जिनि दिनु करि कै कीती राति ॥
    Jin ḏin kar kai kīṯī rāṯ.
    The One who created the day also created the night.

    ਖਸਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਹਿ ਤੇ ਕਮਜਾਤਿ
    खसमु विसारहि ते कमजाति ॥
    Kẖasam visārėh ṯe kamjāṯ.
    Those who forget their Lord and Master are vile and despicable.

    ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਵੈ ਬਾਝੁ ਸਨਾਤਿ ॥੪॥੩॥
    नानक नावै बाझु सनाति ॥४॥३॥
    Nānak nāvai bājẖ sanāṯ. ||4||3||
    O Nanak, without the Name, they are wretched outcasts. ||4||3||

    Those who have not obtained the Sublime Essence of the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, are most unfortunate; they are led away by the Messenger of Death.

    Prologue : Once at Kartarpur during the afternoon Guru Nanak Dev Ji was resting while Bhai Lehna ji (Guru Angad Dev Ji) was massaging GuruJi's feet, suddenly Bhai Lehna saw blood from new scratches manifested while GuruJi was still on the bed. Upon asking, Guruji said that a Shepherd is walking along with his sheep in thankful bushes while reciting this Sohila hymn in full concentration therefore whatever thorns that were to prik him are pricking Guruji. Therefore Guruji instructed Sikhs to read Sohila just before going to sleep.

    During Guru Arjan Dev ji's time, a businessman sikh requested for his personal and goods protection during his outstation trips, Guruji added another hymn of Guru Ram Das Ji and one of his own and told the sikh to read before going to sleep every night.

    Prologue : Guru Nanak Dev Ji once went to Jaganath during which the Arti (devotion) was being performed. All the Pandits enquired why Guruji did not join to perform the Arti before the Almighty at the temple, Guruji then said through the following hymn that I perform Arti before Almighty in a manner that the Arti is performed all the time.
