( Bhagat Jana Kou Aap Tutha Mera Piara ….)
My beloved Lord is pleased with His saints and has immersed them (His slaves or devotees) in His worship and True Name. In fact, the Lord has bestowed the kingdom of heaven like a canopy over the heads of His saints.
The persons, who are engaged in the service of the Guru, always enjoy the bliss of life, having purified themselves, whereas the persons who are engrossed in wrangles (quarrels) or wars are not worthy of being called kings.
They are rather taken through the cycle of births and deaths. O Nanak! The persons, who are dishonored (with smitten noses) without the recitation of True Name, never get acclaimed here or hereafter. (1)
So long as one is not able to inculcate the love of the Guru’s Word in one’s heart, it is no use getting involved in tall talk or listening to the teachings only.
It is only through the service of the Guru that we can inculcate the love of) the True Name in our hearts and cast away our doubts, fear, or dual-mindedness.
The best course is to get imbued with the love of the True Name of the Lord and then get immersed in meditation of True Name, depending on how one (views) perceives the Guru outwardly. O Nanak! One gets honored and acclaimed in the world by reciting True Name and the Lord’s Presence. (2)
The Guru’s Sikhs always worship (serve) the Guru, as they have developed a love for the Lord in their hearts. Thus they gain the profit of the Lord’s True Name by dealing in the trade (business) of the Lord’s True Name with love and devotion.
Such Guru-minded persons proceed with flying colors to the Lord’s court with pure hearts and find an honorable place in the Lord’s presence, as they have won the pleasure of the Lord.
The Guru is the fountain-head of the wealth of the Lord’s True Name and the fortunate Sikhs, predestined by the Lord’s Will, share their virtues with others as well. I would offer myself as a sacrifice to those Guru’s Sikhs, who recite the Lord’s True Name all the time whether in sitting or standing postures. (11)
