    Mehlā 2.
    Second Mehl:

    ਦਿਸੈ ਸੁਣੀਐ ਜਾਣੀਐ ਸਾਉ ਪਾਇਆ ਜਾਇ
    Ḏisai suṇī*ai jāṇī*ai sā*o na pā*i*ā jā*ė.
    He is seen, heard and known, but His subtle essence is not obtained.

    ਰੁਹਲਾ ਟੁੰਡਾ ਅੰਧੁਲਾ ਕਿਉ ਗਲਿ ਲਗੈ ਧਾਇ
    Ruhlā tundā anḏẖulā ki*o gal lagai ḏẖā*ė.
    How can the lame, armless and blind person run to embrace the Lord?

    ਭੈ ਕੇ ਚਰਣ ਕਰ ਭਾਵ ਕੇ ਲੋਇਣ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਕਰੇਇ
    Bẖai kė cẖaraṇ kar bẖāv kė lo*iṇ suraṯ karė*i.
    Let the Fear of God be your feet, and let His Love be your hands; let His Understanding be your eyes.

    ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਿਆਣੀਏ ਇਵ ਕੰਤ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥
    Nānak kahai si*āṇī*ė iv kanṯ milāvā ho*ė. ||2||
    Says Nanak, in this way, O wise soul-bride, you shall be united with your Husband Lord. ||2||

    I should have read the whole ang (139)!. Thanks anyways. I think the shabad also mean to see beyond wordly attachment and to avoid the 5 vices. Have Gurmukh qualities.
