Chant And Meditate:

आदि सचु जुगादि सचु ॥
True In The Primal Beginning. True Throughout The Ages.

है भी सचु नानक होसी भी सचु ॥१॥
True Here And Now. O Nanak, Forever And Ever True. ||1||

सोचै सोचि न होवई जे सोची लख वार ॥
By thinking, He cannot be reduced to thought, even by thinking hundreds of thousands of times.

चुपै चुप न होवई जे लाइ रहा लिव तार ॥
By remaining silent, inner silence is not obtained, even by remaining lovingly absorbed deep within.

भुखिआ भुख न उतरी जे बंना पुरीआ भार ॥
The hunger of the hungry is not appeased, even by piling up loads of worldly goods.

सहस सिआणपा लख होहि त इक न चलै नालि ॥
Hundreds of thousands of clever tricks, but not even one of them will go along with you in the end.

किव सचिआरा होईऐ किव कूड़ै तुटै पालि ॥
So how can you become truthful? And how can the veil of illusion be torn away?

हुकमि रजाई चलणा नानक लिखिआ नालि ॥१॥
O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will. ||1||

हुकमी होवनि आकार हुकमु न कहिआ जाई ॥
By His Command, bodies are created; His Command cannot be described.

हुकमी होवनि जीअ हुकमि मिलै वडिआई ॥
By His Command, souls come into being; by His Command, glory and greatness are obtained.

हुकमी उतमु नीचु हुकमि लिखि दुख सुख पाईअहि ॥
By His Command, some are high and some are low; by His Written Command, pain and pleasure are obtained.

इकना हुकमी बखसीस इकि हुकमी सदा भवाईअहि ॥
Some, by His Command, are blessed and forgiven; others, by His Command, wander aimlessly forever.

हुकमै अंदरि सभु को बाहरि हुकम न कोइ ॥
Everyone is subject to His Command; no one is beyond His Command.

नानक हुकमै जे बुझै त हउमै कहै न कोइ ॥२॥
O Nanak, one who understands His Command, does not speak in ego. ||2||

गावै को ताणु होवै किसै ताणु ॥
Some sing of His Power-who has that Power?

गावै को दाति जाणै नीसाणु ॥
Some sing of His Gifts, and know His Sign and Insignia.

गावै को गुण वडिआईआ चार ॥
Some sing of His Glorious Virtues, Greatness and Beauty.

गावै को विदिआ विखमु वीचारु ॥
Some sing of knowledge obtained of Him, through difficult philosophical studies.

गावै को साजि करे तनु खेह ॥
Some sing that He fashions the body, and then again reduces it to dust.

गावै को जीअ लै फिरि देह ॥
Some sing that He takes life away, and then again restores it.

गावै को जापै दिसै दूरि ॥
Some sing that He seems so very far away.
