ਗੁਰਿ ਪੂਰੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਜੀਵਨੁ ਬਿਰਥਾ ॥ Without Nam life is pointless.

When Guru’s hand was placed on my forehead,
All-Pervasive’s jewel-like Nam came to reside in my heart.
Through Guru’s gift of Nam, many life-times
of evilest pain and debt were removed.  1.

My mind recites Charmer-Divine’s Nam, the source of all wealth.
Perfect Guru instilled All-Pervasive’s Nam—without Nam life is pointless.  Reflect.

Without Guru, the self-centered are foolish,
Every day remain trapped in illusion.
Never serving at the feet of Goodness,
Entire lives become worthless.  2. 

Those serving at the feet-base of Goodness-Guru
become Master’s own and lives become fruitful.
O Master of the Universe, All-Pervasive, grace me
to be the votary of the votary of Your votaries.  3.

We are blind, wisdom-less, unwise… How can we walk the Path?
O Guru, grant us the blind ones,
Your hem so commoner Nanak
may walk in harmony.  4.

Sabad is Infinite; we are very finite. This is our understanding at the moment, which was different yesterday and may evolve tomorrow, as we deepen our relationship with the Sabad. In this trans-creation, we have chosen to keep the repeating words in the Sabad same. We aspire to learn and retain the Divine attribute as used in the original Sabad and avoid terms like God or Lord.
