    kott karam karai ho dhhaarae ||
    sram paavai sagalae birathhaarae ||
    anik thapasiaa karae aha(n)kaar ||
    narak surag fir fir avathaar ||
    anik jathan kar aatham nehee dhravai ||
    har dharageh kahu kaisae gavai ||
    aapas ko jo bhalaa kehaavai ||
    thisehi bhalaaee nikatt n aavai ||
    sarab kee raen jaa kaa man hoe ||
    kahu naanak thaa kee niramal soe ||3||

    If someone does millions of good deeds, while acting in ego,
    he shall incur only trouble; all this is in vain.
    If someone performs great penance, while acting in selfishness and conceit,
    he shall be reincarnated into heaven and hell, over and over again.
    He makes all sorts of efforts, but his soul is still not softened
    how can he go to the Court of the Lord?
    One who calls himself good
    goodness shall not draw near him.
    One whose mind is the dust of all
    - says Nanak, his reputation is spotlessly pure. ||3||
