Gauree, Fifth Mehla:
Meet me, O my Lord of the Universe. Please bless me with Your Name.
Without the Naam, the Name of the Lord, cursed, cursed is love and intimacy. ||1||Pause||
Without the Naam, one who dresses and eats well
is like a dog, who falls in and eats impure foods. ||1||
Without the Naam, all occupations are useless, like decorations on a dead body. ||2||
One who forgets the Naam and indulges in pleasures,
shall find no peace, even in dreams; his body shall become diseased. ||3||
One who renounces the Naam and engages in other occupations,
shall see all of his false pretenses fall away. ||4||
One whose mind does not embrace love for the Naam
shall go to hell, even though he may perform millions of ceremonial rituals. ||5||
One whose mind does not contemplate the Name of the Lord
is bound like a thief, in the City of Death. ||6||
Hundreds of thousands of ostentatious shows and great expanses
- without the Naam, all these displays are false. ||7||
That humble being repeats the Name of the Lord,
O Nanak, whom the Lord blesses with His Mercy. ||8||10||
