    My understanding of this sabad. All errors are mine and I stand corrected. Sat Sri Akal.

    ਬਿਲਾਵਲੁ ਮਹਲਾ
    Bilāval mėhlā 5.
    Raag Bilaaval, Guru Arjan Dev ji

    ਕਵਨੁ ਕਵਨੁ ਨਹੀ ਪਤਰਿਆ ਤੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹਰੀ ਪਰਤੀਤਿ ਮਹਾ ਮੋਹਨੀ ਮੋਹਿਆ ਨਰਕ ਕੀ ਰੀਤਿ ੧॥ Kavan kavan nahī paṯri▫ā ṯumĥrī parṯīṯ. Mahā mohnī mohi▫ā narak kī rīṯ. ||1||
    Who and who have not been deceived by believing you. Most enchanting worldly possessions, way to hell.

    ਮਨ ਖੁਟਹਰ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਸਾਸੁ ਤੂ ਮਹਾ ਉਦਮਾਦਾ ਖਰ ਕਾ ਪੈਖਰੁ ਤਉ ਛੁਟੈ ਜਉ ਊਪਰਿ ਲਾਦਾ ੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ
    Man kẖuthar ṯerā nahī bisās ṯū mahā uḏmāḏā. Kẖar kā paikẖar ṯa▫o cẖẖutai ja▫o ūpar lāḏā. ||1|| rahā▫o.
    False mind you cannot be trusted, you too intoxicated. Donkey rear legs are untied when is loaded up.

    ਜਪ ਤਪ ਸੰਜਮ ਤੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਖੰਡੇ ਜਮ ਕੇ ਦੁਖ ਡਾਂਡ ਸਿਮਰਹਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਜੋਨਿ ਦੁਖ ਨਿਰਲਜੇ ਭਾਂਡ ੨॥
    Jap ṯap sanjam ṯumĥ kẖande jam ke ḏukẖ dāʼnd. Simrahi nāhī jon ḏukẖ nirlaje bẖāʼnd. ||2||
    Contemplation, body regimens, self control are lost and suffers demon of death. Shameless joker does not remember the pains of living cycles.

    ਹਰਿ ਸੰਗਿ ਸਹਾਈ ਮਹਾ ਮੀਤੁ ਤਿਸ ਸਿਉ ਤੇਰਾ ਭੇਦੁ ਬੀਧਾ ਪੰਚ ਬਟਵਾਰਈ ਉਪਜਿਓ ਮਹਾ ਖੇਦੁ ੩॥
    Har sang sahā▫ī mahā mīṯ ṯis si▫o ṯerā bẖeḏ. Bīḏẖā pancẖ batvāra▫ī upji▫o mahā kẖeḏ. ||3||
    Creator always helping greatest friend, you distanced self from such. Five robbers have ensnared creating great suffering

    ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਨ ਸੰਤਨ ਸਰਣਾਗਤੀ ਜਿਨ ਮਨੁ ਵਸਿ ਕੀਨਾ ਤਨੁ ਧਨੁ ਸਰਬਸੁ ਆਪਣਾ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਜਨ ਕਉ ਦੀਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ੪॥੨੮॥੫੮॥
    Nānak ṯin sanṯan sarṇāgaṯī jin man vas kīnā. Ŧan ḏẖan sarbas āpṇā parabẖ jan ka▫o ḏīnĥā. ||4||28||58||
    Guru Nanak, humbly falls to those pious one’s who control their mind. All of self and wealth be given to such humble people of the creator.

    Note : Metaphorical or Common Awareness Usage to Get the message Across:

    1. ਨਰਕ ==== hell
    - people’s hatred and fear of hell
    2. ਖਰ ਕਾ ਪੈਖਰੁ ਤਉ ਛੁਟੈ ==== Donkey rear legs are untied
    - Donkey’s don’t like carrying weight and to load they are tied and only released when loaded. For the identified way of focus described in the sabad, Guru ji liken it to a donkey tied and being loaded. Untethered when weight is upon and too late for the donkey to do much about it.

    3. ਜਮ ==== demon of death
    - people’s hatred and fear of demon of death
    4. ਜੋਨਿ ਦੁਖ ==== pains of living cycles
    - A preferred position held by most to break the hurtful cycle of re-birthing

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!
