Gurmukh

Waheguru Jee Kaa Khaalsa Waheguru Jee Kee Fatehhh

This Shabad is by Bhai Gurdas Ji in Vaars Bhai Gurdaas on Ang 18

ਗੁਰਮੁਖ ਭੈ ਿਵਚ ਜੰਮਣਾ ਭੈ ਿਵਚ ਰਿਹਣਾ ਭੈ ਿਵਚ ਚਲਣਾ॥
ਸਾਧ ਸੰਗਤ ਭੈ ਭਾਇ ਿਵਚ ਭਗ ਵਛਲ ਕਰ ਅਛਲ ਛਲਣਾ॥
ਜਲ ਿਵਚ ਕੌਲ ਅਿਲਪ ਹੋਇ ਆਸ ਿਨਰਾਸ ਵਲੇਵੇ ਵਲਣਾ॥
ਅਿਹਰਣ ਘਣ ਹੀਰੇ ਜੁਗ ਗੁਰਮਤ ਨਿਹਚਲ ਅਟਲ ਨ ਟਲਣਾ॥
ਪਰ ਉਪਕਾਰ ਵੀਚਾਰ ਿਵਚ ਜੀਅ ਦਯਾ ਮੋਮ ਵਾਂਗੀ ਢਲਣਾ॥
ਚਾਰ ਵਰਨ ਤੰਬੋਲ ਰਸ ਆਪ ਗਵਾਇ ਰਲਾਯਾ ਰਲਣਾ॥
ਵੱਟੀ ਤੇਲ ਦੀਵਾ ਹੋਇ ਬਲਣਾ ॥17॥

guramukh bhai vich ja(n)manaa bhai vich rehinaa bhai vich chalanaa ||
saadhh sa(n)gath bhai bhaae vich bhag vashhal kar ashhal shhalanaa ||
jal vich kaal alip hoe aas niraas valaevae valanaa ||
ahiran ghan heerae jug guramath nihachal attal n ttalanaa ||
par oupakaar veechaar vich jeea dhayaa mom vaa(n)gee dtalanaa ||
chaar varan tha(n)bol ras aap gavaae ralaayaa ralanaa ||
vaattee thael dheevaa hoe balanaa ||17||

The gurmukhs take birth in the divine will, they remain in the divine will and move in the divine will.
In the discipline and love of the holy congregation they fascinate the Lord God also.
Being detached like lotus in the water they remain away from the cycle of hopes and disappointments.
They remain steadfast like a diamond in between the hammer and the anvil and live their life deeply rooted in the wisdom of the Guru (gurmati).
They always imbibe altruism in their heart and in the sphere of compassion they melt like wax.
As four items mix up in betel and become one, likewise the gurmukhs get adjusted with every one.
They, in the form of lamp becoming wick and oil, burn themselves (for lighting others).

bhull chuk maaf
Waheguru Jee Kaa Khaalsa Waheguru Jee Kee Fateh
