As a palace is supported by its pillars,
so does the Guru's Word support the mind.
As a stone placed in a boat can cross over the river,
so is the mortal saved, grasping hold of the Guru's Feet.
As the darkness is illuminated by the lamp,
so does the mind blossom forth, beholding the Blessed Vision of the Guru's Darshan.
The path is found through the great wilderness by joining the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, and one's light shines forth.
I seek the dust of the feet of those Saints;
O Lord, fulfill Nanak's longing! ||3||
