    ਬਹੁ ਸਾਸਤ੍ਰ ਬਹੁ ਸਿਮ੍ਰਿਤੀ ਪੇਖੇ ਸਰਬ ਢਢੋਲਿ ਪੂਜਸਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਹਰਿ ਹਰੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮ ਅਮੋਲ ੧॥
    Baho sāsṯar baho simriṯī pekẖe sarab dẖadẖol. Pūjas nāhī har hare Nānak nām amol. ||1||

    Many holy books and treatises have been researched. Guru Nanak, nothing comes close to the understanding of the esteemed creator or be so valued.


    Eight stanzas hymn.

    ਮਨ ਕਾਮਨਾ ਤੀਰਥ ਦੇਹ ਛੁਟੈ ਗਰਬੁ ਗੁਮਾਨੁ ਮਨ ਤੇ ਹੁਟੈ
    Man kāmnā ṯirath ḏeh cẖẖutai. Garab gumān na man ṯe hutai.

    One may wish to pass away at a holy place. Egotistical pride does not leave the mind.

    ਸੋਚ ਕਰੈ ਦਿਨਸੁ ਅਰੁ ਰਾਤਿ ਮਨ ਕੀ ਮੈਲੁ ਤਨ ਤੇ ਜਾਤਿ
    Socẖ karai ḏinas ar rāṯ. Man kī mail na ṯan ṯe jāṯ.

    One may take cleansing bath day and night. The dirt in the mind is not eliminated by so cleansing the body.

    ਇਸੁ ਦੇਹੀ ਕਉ ਬਹੁ ਸਾਧਨਾ ਕਰੈ ਮਨ ਤੇ ਕਬਹੂ ਬਿਖਿਆ ਟਰੈ
    Is ḏehī ka▫o baho sāḏẖnā karai. Man ṯe kabhū na bikẖi▫ā tarai.

    Same body, one may try many other methods. The worldly hunger is never satiated.

    ਜਲਿ ਧੋਵੈ ਬਹੁ ਦੇਹ ਅਨੀਤਿ ਸੁਧ ਕਹਾ ਹੋਇ ਕਾਚੀ ਭੀਤਿ
    Jal ḏẖovai baho ḏeh anīṯ. Suḏẖ kahā ho▫e kācẖī bẖīṯ.

    Wash the perishable body with water. How can such a wall of mud be cleaned this way.

    ਮਨ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਮਹਿਮਾ ਊਚ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮਿ ਉਧਰੇ ਪਤਿਤ ਬਹੁ ਮੂਚ ੩॥
    Man har ke nām kī mahimā ūcẖ. Nānak nām uḏẖre paṯiṯ baho mūcẖ. ||3||

    O mind, do realize the virtuosity of the creator is highest. Guru Nanak, through such creator’s understanding many find salvation from bad deeds.

    Please note all errors are mine and I stand corrected.

    Sat Sri Akal.

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!
