    Aasaa, Fifth Mehl, Du-Padas:
    You have been blessed with this human body.
    This is your chance to meet the Lord of the Universe.
    Other efforts are of no use to you.
    Joining the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, vibrate and meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||1||
    Make the effort, and cross over the terrifying world ocean.
    This human life is passing away in vain, in the love of Maya. ||1||Pause||
    I have not practiced meditation, penance, self-restraint or righteous living;
    I have not served the Holy Saints, and I do not know the Lord, my King.
    Says Nanak, my actions are vile and despicable;
    O Lord, I seek Your Sanctuary - please, preserve my honor. ||2||29||
