Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
thaapi-aa na jaa-ay keetaa na ho-ay. aapay aap niranjan so-ay.
He cannot be established; By doing it cannot be done.
He Himself is Immaculate and Pure.
jin sayvi-aa tin paa-i-aa maan. naanak gaavee-ai gunee niDhaan.
Whoever serves Him receives honor.
O Nanak sing - "Only Lord has endless Virtues".
gaavee-ai sunee-ai man rakhee-ai bhaa-o. dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jaa-ay.
Sing, listen, and keep your mind humble.
For your pains, take home every peace.
gurmukh naadaN gurmukh vaydaN gurmukh rahi-aa samaa-ee.
The Guru’s Word is the Sound-current,
wisdom of the Vedas and remains the ultimate protector.
gur eesar gur gorakh barmaa gur paarbatee maa-ee.
The Guru is Shiva, Gorak and Brahma;
the Guru is Paarvati and Lakhshmi.
jay ha-o jaanaa aakhaa naahee kahnaa kathan na jaa-ee.
Even knowing Him, I cannot describe Him;
He is beyond description in words.
guraa ik dayhi bujhaa-ee. sabhnaa jee-aa kaa ik daataa so mai visar na jaa-ee. 5
The Guru has extinguished this doubt:
All creatures have only the one God – May I never forget this!
