    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.

    Gurbani has all the answers right there for us, there is nothing that Gurabni doesn't answer........

    forgive me please
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!
