Bowing before the Guru, I have now, attained peace. I have abandoned cleverness, quieted my anxiety and renounced my egotism. When I look around, I find everybody fascinated by worldly love. It is then that I hasten to seek Guru’s protection. Showing mercy, the Guru has engaged me in God’s service, and the fear of death has vanished from me. Through great good fortune, I met with the saints, and I swam across the worldly ocean of fire.
Says Nanak, I have obtained total peace at the feet of my Lord.
Shabad Veyakheya in Punjabi:
Shabad Interpretation in Hindi:
अब मुझे गुरु के सम्मुख सुख ओर शांति की प्राप्ती हो गई है. अब मैंने चतुराई छोड़, अपनी चिंताओं को भूल ओर अहंग्कार को त्याग दीआ है. जब चारों ओर देखतां हूँ सभी को मोह माया के जंजाल में फंसा पता हूँ, तब मैं भाग के गुरु की शरण में आ गया हूँ. गुरु की किरपा से मेरा प्रभु से नाता जुड़ा गया है और मेरे अन्दर से मौत का डर भाग गया है. संत जनों के मेल से मैं अगन सागर को पार कर सका हूँ. नानक कहते हैं कि प्रभु के चरणों मैं चित लगाने से मुझे सभी सुखों की प्रप्ती हो गई है.
