Ang: 757

I am a sacrifice to those who chant the Glorious Praises of the Lord in their minds forever. ||1||Pause|| The Guru is like the Mansarovar Lake; only the very fortunate beings find Him. The Gurmukhs, the selfless servants, seek out the Guru; the swan-souls feed there on the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||2|| The Gurmukhs meditate on the Naam, and remain linked to the Naam. Whatever is pre-ordained, accept it as the Will of the Guru. ||3|| By great good fortune, I searched my home, and found the treasure of the Naam. The Perfect Guru has shown God to me; I have realized the Lord, the Supreme Soul. ||4|| There is One God of all; there is no other at all. By Guru's Grace, the Lord comes to abide in the mind; in the heart of such a one, He is revealed. ||5|| God is the Inner-knower of all hearts; God dwells in every place. So who should we call evil? Behold the Word of the Shabad, and lovingly dwell upon it. ||6|| He calls others bad and good, as long as he is in duality. The Gurmukh understands the One and Only Lord; He is absorbed in the One Lord. ||7|| That is selfless service, which pleases God, and which is approved by God. Servant Nanak worships the Lord in adoration; he focuses his consciousness on the Guru's Feet. ||8||2||4||9|| Raag Soohee, Ashtapadees, Fourth Mehl, Second House: One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: If only someone would come, and lead me to meet my Darling Beloved; I would sell myself to him. ||1|| I long for the Blessed Vision of the Lord's Darshan. When the Lord shows Mercy unto me, then I meet the True Guru; I meditate on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. ||1||Pause|| If You will bless me with happiness, then I will worship and adore You. Even in pain, I will meditate on You. ||2|| Even if You give me hunger, I will still feel satisfied; I am joyful, even in the midst of sorrow. ||3|| I would cut my mind and body apart into pieces, and offer them all to You; I would burn myself in fire. ||4|| I wave the fan over You, and carry water for You; whatever You give me, I take. ||5|| Poor Nanak has fallen at the Lord's Door; please, O Lord, unite me with Yourself, by Your Glorious Greatness. ||6|| Taking out my eyes, I place them at Your Feet; after travelling over the entire earth, I have come to understand this. ||7|| If You seat me near You, then I worship and adore You. Even if You beat me and drive me out, I will still meditate on You. ||8|| If people praise me, the praise is Yours. Even if they slander me, I will not leave You. ||9|| If You are on my side, then anyone can say anything. But if I were to forget You, then I would die. ||10|| I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to my Guru; falling at His Feet, I surrender to the Saintly Guru. ||11|| Poor Nanak has gone insane, longing for the Blessed Vision of the Lord's Darshan. ||12|| Even in violent storms and torrential rain, I go out to catch a glimpse of my Guru. ||13|| Even though the oceans and the salty seas are very vast, the GurSikh will cross over it to get to his Guru. ||14|| Just as the mortal dies without water, so does the Sikh die without the Guru. ||15||

Just as the earth looks beautiful when the rain falls, so does the Sikh blossom forth meeting the Guru. ||16|| I long to be the servant of Your servants; I call upon You reverently in prayer. ||17|| Nanak offers this prayer to the Lord, that he may meet the Guru, and find peace. ||18|| You Yourself are the Guru, and You Yourself are the chaylaa, the disciple; through the Guru, I meditate on You. ||19|| Those who serve You, become You. You preserve the honor of Your servants. ||20|| O Lord, Your devotional worship is a treasure over-flowing. One who loves You, is blessed with it. ||21|| That humble being alone receives it, unto whom You bestow it. All other clever tricks are fruitless. ||22|| Remembering, remembering, remembering my Guru in meditation, my sleeping mind is awakened. ||23|| Poor Nanak begs for this one blessing, that he may become the slave of the slaves of the Lord. ||24|| Even if the Guru rebukes me, He still seems very sweet to me. And if He actually forgives me, that is the Guru's greatness. ||25|| That which Gurmukh speaks is certified and approved. Whatever the self-willed manmukh says is not accepted. ||26|| Even in the cold, the frost and the snow, the GurSikh still goes out to see his Guru. ||27|| All day and night, I gaze upon my Guru; I install the Guru's Feet in my eyes. ||28|| I make so many efforts for the sake of the Guru; only that which pleases the Guru is accepted and approved. ||29|| Night and day, I worship the Guru's Feet in adoration; have Mercy upon me, O my Lord and Master. ||30|| The Guru is Nanak's body and soul; meeting the Guru, he is satisfied and satiated. ||31|| Nanak's God is perfectly permeating and all-pervading. Here and there and everywhere, the Lord of the Universe. ||32||1|| Raag Soohee, Fourth Mehl, Ashtapadees, Tenth House: One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: Deep within myself, I have enshrined true love for my Beloved. My body and soul are in ecstasy; I see my Guru before me. ||1|| I have purchased the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. I have obtained the Inaccessible and Unfathomable Ambrosial Nectar from the Perfect Guru. ||1||Pause|| Gazing upon the True Guru, I blossom forth in ecstasy; I am in love with the Name of the Lord. Through His Mercy, the Lord has united me with Himself, and I have found the Door of Salvation. ||2|| The True Guru is the Lover of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. Meeting Him, I dedicate my body and mind to Him. And if it is so pre-ordained, then I shall automatically drink in the Ambrosial Nectar. ||3|| Praise the Guru while you are asleep, and call on the Guru while you are up. If only I could meet such a Gurmukh; I would wash His Feet. ||4|| I long for such a Friend, to unite me with my Beloved. Meeting the True Guru, I have found the Lord. He has met me, easily and effortlessly. ||5||
