    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.

    ਬਹੁਤੁ ਸਿਆਣਪ ਜਮ ਕਾ ਭਉ ਬਿਆਪੈ ਅਨਿਕ ਜਤਨ ਕਰਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨ ਨਾ ਧ੍ਰਾਪੈ
    Bahuṯ si▫āṇap jam kā bẖa▫o bi▫āpai. Anik jaṯan kar ṯarisan nā ḏẖarāpai.

    With cleverness comes the fear of demons. Worldly hunger is not satiated despite many efforts.

    ਭੇਖ ਅਨੇਕ ਅਗਨਿ ਨਹੀ ਬੁਝੈ ਕੋਟਿ ਉਪਾਵ ਦਰਗਹ ਨਹੀ ਸਿਝੈ
    Bẖekẖ anek agan nahī bujẖai. Kot upāv ḏargėh nahī sijẖai.

    Trying multitude of religious personifications, the fire of greed is not put out. Millions of methods do not bring you acceptance in creator’s realm.

    ਛੂਟਸਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਊਭ ਪਇਆਲਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਬਿਆਪਹਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਜਾਲਿ
    Cẖẖūtas nāhī ūbẖ pa▫i▫āl. Mohi bi▫āpahi mā▫i▫ā jāl.

    There is no salvation by ascending to the sky or hiding in yonder. Attachment and worldly possessions cast a net.

    ਅਵਰ ਕਰਤੂਤਿ ਸਗਲੀ ਜਮੁ ਡਾਨੈ ਗੋਵਿੰਦ ਭਜਨ ਬਿਨੁ ਤਿਲੁ ਨਹੀ ਮਾਨੈ
    Avar karṯūṯ saglī jam dānai. Govinḏ bẖajan bin ṯil nahī mānai.

    Everything else is dealt with at the calling of death. Nothing is acceptable other than the discoursing of the creator.

    ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਤ ਦੁਖੁ ਜਾਇ ਨਾਨਕ ਬੋਲੈ ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ ੪॥
    Har kā nām japaṯ ḏukẖ jā▫e. Nānak bolai sahj subẖā▫e. ||4||

    Through discourse of understanding the creator, ills are cured. Guru Nanak so states with intuitive ease.

    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!
