Renouncing ego, I serve them; thus I meet my True Husband Lord, with intuitive ease. The True Husband Lord comes to meet the soul-bride who practices Truth, and is imbued with the True Word of the Shabad. She shall never become a widow; she shall always be a happy bride. Deep within herself, she dwells in the celestial bliss of Samaadhi. Her Husband Lord is fully pervading everywhere; beholding Him ever-present, she enjoys His Love, with intuitive ease. Those who have realized their Husband Lord - I go and ask those Saints about Him. ||3|| The separated ones also meet with their Husband Lord, if they fall at the Feet of the True Guru. The True Guru is forever merciful; through the Word of His Shabad, demerits are burnt away. Burning away her demerits through the Shabad, the soul-bride eradicates her love of duality, and remains absorbed in the True, True Lord. Through the True Shabad, everlasting peace is obtained, and egotism and doubt are dispelled. The Immaculate Husband Lord is forever the Giver of peace; O Nanak, through the Word of His Shabad, He is met. The separated ones also meet with their Husband Lord, if they fall at the feet of the True Guru. ||4||1|| Wadahans, Third Mehl: Listen, O brides of the Lord: serve your Beloved Husband Lord, and contemplate the Word of His Shabad. The worthless bride does not know her Husband Lord - she is deluded; forgetting her Husband Lord, she weeps and wails. She weeps, thinking of her Husband Lord, and she cherishes His virtues; her Husband Lord does not die, and does not leave. As Gurmukh, she knows the Lord; through the Word of His Shabad, He is realized; through True Love, she merges with Him. She who does not know her Husband Lord, the Architect of karma, is deluded by falsehood - she herself is false. Listen, O brides of the Lord: serve your Beloved Husband Lord, and contemplate the Word of His Shabad. ||1|| He Himself created the whole world; the world comes and goes. The love of Maya has ruined the world; people die, to be re-born, over and over again. People die to be re-born, over and over again, while their sins increase; without spiritual wisdom, they are deluded. Without the Word of the Shabad, the Husband Lord is not found; the worthless, false bride wastes her life away, weeping and wailing. He is my Beloved Husband Lord, the Life of the World - for whom should I weep? They alone weep, who forget their Husband Lord. He Himself created the whole world; the world comes and goes. ||2|| That Husband Lord is True, forever True; He does not die, and He does not leave. The ignorant soul-bride wanders in delusion; in the love of duality, she sits like a widow. She sits like a widow, in the love of duality; through emotional attachment to Maya, she suffers in pain. She is growing old, and her body is withering away. Whatever has come, all that shall pass away; through the love of duality, they suffer in pain. They do not see the Messenger of Death; they long for Maya, and their consciousness is attached to greed. That Husband Lord is True, forever True; He does not die, and He does not leave. ||3|| Some weep and wail, separated from their Husband Lord; the blind ones do not know that their Husband is with them. By Guru's Grace, they may meet with their True Husband, and cherish Him always deep within. She cherishes her Husband deep within herself - He is always with her; the self-willed manmukhs think that He is far away. This body rolls in the dust, and is totally useless; it does not realize the Presence of the Lord and Master.
O Nanak, that soul-bride is united in Union; she cherishes her Beloved Husband forever, deep within herself. Some weep and wail, separated from their Husband Lord; the blind ones do not know that their Husband is with them. ||4||2|| Wadahans, Third Mehl: Those who are separated from their Beloved Husband Lord weep and wail, but my True Husband Lord is always with me. Those who know that they must depart, serve the True Guru, and dwell upon the Naam, the Name of the Lord. They dwell constantly upon the Naam, and the True Guru is with them; they serve the True Guru, and so obtain peace. Through the Shabad, they kill death, and enshrine the True Lord within their hearts; they shall not have to come and go again. True is the Lord and Master, and True is His Name; bestowing His Gracious Glance, one is enraptured. Those who are separated from their Beloved Husband Lord weep and wail, but my True Husband Lord is always with me. ||1|| God, my Lord and Master, is the highest of all; how can I meet my Dear Beloved? When the True Guru united me, then I was naturally united with my Husband Lord, and now, I keep Him clasped to my heart. I constantly, lovingly cherish my Beloved within my heart; through the True Guru, I see my Beloved. The cloak of Maya's love is false; wearing it, one slips and loses his footing. That cloak is true, which is dyed in the color of the Love of my Beloved; wearing it, my inner thirst is quenched. God, my Lord and Master, is the highest of all; how can I meet my Dear Beloved? ||2|| I have realized my True Lord God, while the other worthless ones have gone astray. I dwell constantly upon my Beloved Husband Lord, and reflect upon the True Word of the Shabad. The bride reflects upon the True Shabad, and is imbued with His Love; she meets with the True Guru, and finds her Beloved. Deep within, she is imbued with His Love, and intoxicated with delight; her enemies and sufferings are all taken away. Surrender body and soul to your Guru, and then you shall become happy; your thirst and pain shall be taken away. I have realized my True Lord God, while the other worthless ones have gone astray. ||3|| The True Lord Himself created the world; without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness. He Himself unites, and causes us to unite with Him; He Himself blesses us with His Love. He Himself blesses us with His Love, and deals in celestial peace; the life of the Gurmukh is reformed. Blessed is his coming into the world; he banishes his self-conceit, and is acclaimed as true in the Court of the True Lord. The light of the jewel of spiritual wisdom shines within his heart, O Nanak, and he loves the Naam, the Name of the Lord. The True Lord Himself created the world; without the Guru, there is only pitch darkness. ||4||3|| Wadahans, Third Mehl: This body is frail; old age is overtaking it. Those who are protected by the Guru are saved, while others die, to be reincarnated; they continue coming and going. Others die, to be reincarnated; they continue coming and going, and in the end, they depart regretfully. Without the Name, there is no peace. As one acts here, so does he obtain his rewards; the self-willed manmukh loses his honor. In the City of Death, there is pitch darkness, and huge clouds of dust; neither sister nor brother is there. This body is frail; old age is overtaking it. ||1|| The body becomes like gold, when the True Guru unites one with Himself.
