Raamkalee, Fifth Mehla:
Abandon all your clever tricks.
Become His servant, and serve Him.
Totally erase your self-conceit.
You shall obtain the fruits of your mind's desires. ||1||
Be awake and aware with your Guru.
Your hopes and desires shall be fulfilled, and you shall obtain all treasures from the Guru. ||1||Pause||
Let no one think that God and Guru are separate.
The True Guru is the Immaculate Lord.
Do not believe that He is a mere human being;
He gives honor to the dishonored. ||2||
Hold tight to the Support of the Guru, the Lord.
Give up all other hopes.
Ask for the treasure of the Name of the Lord,
and then you shall be honored in the Court of the Lord. ||3||
Chant the Mantra of the Guru's Word.
This is the essence of true devotional worship.
When the True Guru becomes merciful,
slave Nanak is enraptured. ||4||28||39||
