  |   Golden Temple Hukamnama

Ang: 725

He Himself knows, and He Himself acts; He laid out the garden of the world. ||1|| Savor the story, the story of the Beloved Lord, which brings a lasting peace. ||Pause|| She who does not enjoy the Love of her Husband Lord, shall come to regret and repent in the end. She wrings her hands, and bangs her head, when the night of her life has passed away. ||2|| Nothing comes from repentance, when the game is already finished. She shall have the opportunity to enjoy her Beloved, only when her turn comes again. ||3|| The happy soul-bride attains her Husband Lord - she is so much better than I am. I have none of her merits or virtues; whom should I blame? ||4|| I shall go and ask those sisters who have enjoyed their Husband Lord. I touch their feet, and ask them to show me the Path. ||5|| She who understands the Hukam of His Command, O Nanak, applies the Fear of God as her sandalwood oil; she charms her Beloved with her virtue, and so obtains Him. ||6|| She who meets her Beloved in her heart, remains united with Him; this is truly called union. As much as she may long for Him, she shall not meet Him through mere words. ||7|| As metal melts into metal again, so does love melt into love. By Guru's Grace, this understanding is obtained, and then, one obtains the Fearless Lord. ||8|| There may be an orchard of betel nut trees in the garden, but the donkey does not appreciate its value. If someone savors a fragrance, then he can truly appreciate its flower. ||9|| One who drinks in the ambrosia, O Nanak, abandons his doubts and wanderings. Easily and intuitively, he remains blended with the Lord, and obtains the immortal status. ||10||1|| Tilang, Fourth Mehl: The Guru, my friend, has told me the stories and the sermon of the Lord. I am a sacrifice to my Guru; to the Guru, I am a sacrifice. ||1|| Come, join with me, O Sikh of the Guru, come and join with me. You are my Guru's Beloved. ||Pause|| The Glorious Praises of the Lord are pleasing to the Lord; I have obtained them from the Guru. I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to those who surrender to, and obey the Guru's Will. ||2|| I am dedicated and devoted to those who gaze upon the Beloved True Guru. I am forever a sacrifice to those who perform service for the Guru. ||3|| Your Name, O Lord, Har, Har, is the Destroyer of sorrow. Serving the Guru, it is obtained, and as Gurmukh, one is emancipated. ||4|| Those humble beings who meditate on the Lord's Name, are celebrated and acclaimed. Nanak is a sacrifice to them, forever and ever a devoted sacrifice. ||5|| O Lord, that alone is Praise to You, which is pleasing to Your Will, O Lord God. Those Gurmukhs, who serve their Beloved Lord, obtain Him as their reward. ||6|| Those who cherish love for the Lord, their souls are always with God. Chanting and meditating on their Beloved, they live in, and gather in, the Lord's Name. ||7|| I am a sacrifice to those Gurmukhs who serve their Beloved Lord. They themselves are saved, along with their families, and through them, all the world is saved. ||8|| My Beloved Guru serves the Lord. Blessed is the Guru, Blessed is the Guru. The Guru has shown me the Lord's Path; the Guru has done the greatest good deed. ||9||

Ang: 726

Those Sikhs of the Guru, who serve the Guru, are the most blessed beings. Servant Nanak is a sacrifice to them; He is forever and ever a sacrifice. ||10|| The Lord Himself is pleased with the Gurmukhs, the fellowship of the companions. In the Lord's Court, they are given robes of honor, and the Lord Himself hugs them close in His embrace. ||11|| Please bless me with the Blessed Vision of the Darshan of those Gurmukhs, who meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord. I wash their feet, and drink in the dust of their feet, dissolved in the wash water. ||12|| Those who eat betel nuts and betel leaf and smoke crude cigarette, but do not contemplate the Lord, Har, Har - the Messenger of Death will seize them and take them away. ||13|| Ones who contemplate on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, and keep Him enshrined in their hearts, the Messenger of Death does not even approach them; O, the Guru's Sikhs are the Guru's Beloveds! ||14|| The Name of the Lord is a treasure, known only to the few Gurmukhs. O Nanak, those who meet with the True Guru, enjoy peace and pleasure. ||15|| The True Guru is called the Giver; in His Mercy, He grants His Grace. I am forever a sacrifice to the Guru, who has blessed me with the Lord's Name. ||16|| Blessed, very blessed is the Guru, who brings the Lord's message. I gaze upon the Guru, the Guru, the True Guru embodied, and I blossom forth in bliss. ||17|| The Guru's tongue recites Words of Ambrosial Nectar; He is adorned with the Lord's Name. Those Sikhs who hear and obey the Guru - all their desires depart. ||18|| Some speak of the Lord's Path; tell me, how can I walk on it? O Lord, Har, Har, Your Name is my supplies; I will take it with me and set out. ||19|| Those Gurmukhs who worship and adore the Lord, are wealthy and very wise. I am forever a sacrifice to the True Guru; I am absorbed in the Words of the Guru's Teachings. ||20|| You are the Master, my Lord and Master; You are my Ruler and King. If it is pleasing to Your Will, then I worship and serve You; You are the treasure of virtue. ||21|| The Lord Himself is absolute; He is The One and Only; but He Himself is also manifested in many forms. Whatever pleases Him, O Nanak, that alone is good. ||22||2|| Tilang, Ninth Mehl, Kaafee: One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: If you are conscious, then be conscious of Him night and day, O mortal. Each and every moment, your life is passing away, like water from a cracked pitcher. ||1||Pause|| Why do you not sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, you ignorant fool? You are attached to false greed, and you do not even consider death. ||1|| Even now, no harm has been done, if you will only sing God's Praises. Says Nanak, by meditating and vibrating upon Him, you shall obtain the state of fearlessness. ||2||1|| Tilang, Ninth Mehl: Wake up, O mind! Wake up! Why are you sleeping unaware? That body, which you were born with, shall not go along with you in the end. ||1||Pause|| Mother, father, children and relatives whom you love, will throw your body into the fire, when your soul departs from it. ||1||
