    Gauree, First Mehla:
    The inverted heart-lotus has been turned upright, through reflective meditation on God.
    From the Sky of the Tenth Gate, the Ambrosial Nectar trickles down.
    The Lord Himself is pervading the three worlds. ||1||
    O my mind, do not give in to doubt.
    When the mind surrenders to the Name, it drinks in the essence of Ambrosial Nectar. ||1||Pause||
    So win the game of life; let your mind surrender and accept death.
    When the self dies, the individual mind comes to know the Supreme Mind.
    As the inner vision is awakened, one comes to know one's own home, deep within the self. ||2||
    The Naam, the Name of the Lord, is austerity, chastity and cleansing baths at sacred shrines of pilgrimage.
    What good are ostentatious displays?
    The All-pervading Lord is the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts. ||3||
    If I had faith in someone else, then I would go to that one's house.
    But where should I go, to beg? There is no other place for me.
    O Nanak, through the Guru's Teachings, I am intuitively absorbed in the Lord. ||4||8||

    nice shabad.. every line can be contemplated very deeply... and so much deep meaning in them.

    So win the game of life; let your mind surrender and accept death.
