Sri Guru Granth Sahib – Guru Nanak
प्रभ जी को नामु जपत मन चैन ॥
बहु प्रकार खोजहि सभि ता कउ बिखमु न जाई लैन ॥१॥
जाप ताप भ्रमन बसुधा करि उरध ताप लै गैन ॥
इह बिधि नह पतीआनो ठाकुर जोग जुगति करि जैन ॥२॥
अम्रित नामु निरमोलकु हरि जसु तिनि पाइओ जिसु किरपैन ॥
साधसंगि रंगि प्रभ भेटे नानक सुखि जन रैन ॥३॥
Chanting the Name of God, the mind is soothed and pacified.
Everyone searches for Him in different ways, but the search is so difficult, and He cannot be found. ||1||
Chanting, deep meditation and penance, wandering over the face of the earth, the performance of austerities with the arms stretched up to the sky -
the Lord is not pleased by any of these means, though one may follow the path of Yogis and Jains. ||2||
The Ambrosial Naam, the Name of the Lord, and the Praises of the Lord are priceless; he alone obtains them, whom the Lord blesses with His Mercy.
Joining the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, Nanak lives in the Love of God; his life-night passes in peace. ||3||
