When Guru’s hand was placed on my forehead,
All-Pervasive’s jewel-like Nam¹ came to reside in my heart.
Through Guru’s gift of Nam, many life-times
of evilest pain and debt were removed. 1.
My mind recites Charmer-Divine’s Nam, the source of all wealth.
Perfect Guru instilled All-Pervasive’s Nam—without Nam life is pointless. Reflect.
Without Guru, the self-centered are foolish,
Every day remain trapped in illusion.
Never serving at the feet of Goodness,
Entire lives become worthless. 2.
Those serving at the feet-base of Goodness-Guru
become Master’s own and lives become fruitful.
O Master of the Universe, All-Pervasive, grace me
to be the votary of the votary of Your votaries. 3.
We are blind, wisdom-less, unwise… How can we walk the Path?
O Guru, grant us the blind ones,
Your hem so commoner Nanak
may walk in harmony. 4.
