Gurbani Wisdom: Nanak Bhajan

सुमिरन कर ले मेरे मना,
तेरी बीती उम्र हरी नाम बिना ।


Sumiran karle mere maana,
Teri beeti jaati umr hari naam bina.

कूप नीर बिना, धेनु खीर बिना, धरती मेह बिना,
जैसे तरुवर फल बिना हीना, तैसे पुरुष हरी नाम बिना ।

Kupa nir bina , dhenu kshir bina, dharti meha bina,
Jaise taruvaar phaal bina hina, taise prani hari naam bina, maana.

देह नैन बिना, रैन चन्द्र बिना, मंदिर दीप बिना,
जैसे पंडित वेद विहीना, तैसे पुरुष हरी नाम बिना ।


Deha nayan bina, raina chandra bina, mandira deepa bina,
Jaise pandit ved bihina, taise prani hari naam bina, maana.

काम क्रोध मद लोभ निवारो, छोड़ दे अब संत जना ।
कहे नानक शाह सुन भगवंता, या जग में नहीं कोई अपना ॥

Kaam krodh mada lobh nivari, chhar de ab sant jana,
Kahe Nanak shah sun bhagavanta, ya jaag mein nahi koi aapna, maana.

Engage in the remembrance of God my dear mind. Your whole life is going by without uttering His name.

O mind…..Just like a well is without water, the cow is without its cream, and Earth is without clouds, the tall tree without any fruits, so is the life form without the name of God.

O mind ….Just like the body is without eyes, the night is without the moon and the temple is without the light of a candle/ diya, the educated man without the knowledge of scriptures, so is the life form without the name of God.

Controlling the thoughts of sex, anger and pride, please let go, O Noble one.

O beloved of God, listen … Guru Nanak is saying that you own nothing or no one in this world!
