Raag Gauree Bairagan, Fourth Guru
Raag Gauree Bairagan, Guru wa Nne:

ਜਿਉ ਜਨਨੀ ਸੁਤੁ ਜਣਿ ਪਾਲਤੀ ਰਾਖੈ ਨਦਰਿ ਮਝਾਰਿ ॥
ji-o jannee sut jan paaltee raakhai nadar majhaar.
Just as the mother, having given birth to a son, brings him up and keeps an eye on him.
Kama vile mama, akiwa amezaa mwana, anamlea na kumchunga.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਦੇ ਗਿਰਾਸੁ ਖਿਨੁ ਖਿਨੁ ਪੋਚਾਰਿ ॥
antar baahar mukh day giraas khin khin pochaar.
while working in and out of the house, she feeds him regularly, and caresses him every moment.
Wakati anafanya kazi ndani na nje ya nyumba, anamlisha mara kwa mara, na kumpapasa kila wakati.

ਤਿਉ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਰਾਖਤਾ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥੧॥
ti-o satgur gursikh raakh-taa har pareet pi-aar. ||1||
Similarly the true Guru takes care of his Gursikhs (disciples) by inculcating in them the love and affection for God
Vivyo hivyo Guru wa kweli anachunga Gursikh (wanafunzi) wake kwa kupandikiza kwao upendo na mapenzi kwa Mungu

ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਹਮ ਬਾਰਿਕ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੇ ਹੈ ਇਆਣੇ ॥
mayray raam ham baarik har parabh kay hai i-aanay.
O’ God, we are Your innocent children.
Ee Mungu, sisi ni wana wako wasio na hatia.

ਧੰਨੁ ਧੰਨੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਰੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪਾਧਾ ਜਿਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਦੇ ਕੀਏ ਸਿਆਣੇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
Dhan Dhan guroo gur satgur paaDhaa jin har updays day kee-ay si-aanay. ||1|| rahaa-o.
Blessed is our teacher, the true Guru, who made us wise by imparting us with divine knowledge.
Amebarikiwa mwalimu wetu, Guru wa kweli, ambaye ametufanya tuwe na busara kwa kutupa maarifa takatifu.

ਜੈਸੀ ਗਗਨਿ ਫਿਰੰਤੀ ਊਡਤੀ ਕਪਰੇ ਬਾਗੇ ਵਾਲੀ ॥
jaisee gagan firantee oodtee kapray baagay vaalee.
Just as, while flying in the sky a white feathered flamingo,
Kama vile, wakati anapepea angani flamingo mwenye manyoya meupe,

ਓਹ ਰਾਖੈ ਚੀਤੁ ਪੀਛੈ ਬਿਚਿ ਬਚਰੇ ਨਿਤ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਸਾਰਿ ਸਮਾਲੀ ॥
oh raakhai cheet peechhai bich bachray nit hirdai saar samaalee.
keeps her young ones who are left behind, in her thoughts and remembers them in her heart.
Amaweka vifaranga wake aliowaacha nyuma, katika fikira zake na kuwakumbuka moyoni mwake.

ਤਿਉ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਿਖ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਸਿਖ ਰਖੈ ਜੀਅ ਨਾਲੀ ॥੨॥
ti-o satgur sikh pareet har har kee gur sikh rakhai jee-a naalee. ||2||
Similarly the true Guru imbues his Sikhs (disciples) with the love for God, and keeps caring for them from his heart.
Vivyo hivyo Guru wa kweli anavamisha Sikh (wanafunzi) wake katika upendo kwa Mungu, na anaendelea kuwajali moyoni mwake.

ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਤੀ ਤੀਸ ਬਤੀਸ ਹੈ ਵਿਚਿ ਰਾਖੈ ਰਸਨਾ ਮਾਸ ਰਤੁ ਕੇਰੀ ॥
jaisay kaatee tees batees hai vich raakhai rasnaa maas rat kayree.
Just as the tongue, made of flesh and blood, is protected within the scissors of the thirty-two teeth.
Kama vile ulimi, uliotengenezwa kwa nyama na damu, unalindwa ndani mwa mikasi ya meno thelathini na mbili.

ਕੋਈ ਜਾਣਹੁ ਮਾਸ ਕਾਤੀ ਕੈ ਕਿਛੁ ਹਾਥਿ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਵਸਗਤਿ ਹੈ ਹਰਿ ਕੇਰੀ ॥
ko-ee jaanhu maas kaatee kai kichh haath hai sabh vasgat hai har kayree.
Who can figure out if the power lies in the tongue to save itself from being bit by the scissors of teeth. It is all under God’s control.
Nani anaweza kugundua iwapo nguvu ipo katika ulimi ya kijiokoa kutoka kuumwa na mikasi ya meno. Yote ipo katika udhibiti wa Mungu.

ਤਿਉ ਸੰਤ ਜਨਾ ਕੀ ਨਰ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਕਰਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਖੈ ਪੈਜ ਜਨ ਕੇਰੀ ॥੩॥
ti-o sant janaa kee nar nindaa karahi har raakhai paij jan kayree. ||3||
In just the same way, while people slander the Saints, but God preserves the honor of His devotees.
Vivyo hivyo, wakati watu wanazungumza kashfa kuhusu watakatifu, lakini Mungu anahifadhi heshima ya watawa wake.

ਭਾਈ ਮਤ ਕੋਈ ਜਾਣਹੁ ਕਿਸੀ ਕੈ ਕਿਛੁ ਹਾਥਿ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਇਆ ॥
bhaa-ee mat ko-ee jaanhu kisee kai kichh haath hai sabh karay karaa-i-aa.
O’ brothers, don’t ever think that anything is under the control of anybody. It is God who does everything, and causes everything to be done.
Ee ndugu, hata msifikirie ya kwamba chochote kipo katika udhibiti wa mtu yeyote. Ni Mungu anayejua kila kitu, na anafanya kila kitu kitendeke.

ਜਰਾ ਮਰਾ ਤਾਪੁ ਸਿਰਤਿ ਸਾਪੁ ਸਭੁ ਹਰਿ ਕੈ ਵਸਿ ਹੈ ਕੋਈ ਲਾਗਿ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਲਾਇਆ ॥
jaraa maraa taap sirat saap sabh har kai vas hai ko-ee laag na sakai bin har kaa laa-i-aa.
Old age, death, pain, fever, and condemnation are all in the hands of God, and without the Will of God, no harm can come to anybody.
Uzee, kifo, uchungu, homa, na kuangamia yote yapo mikononi mwa Mungu, na bila Mapenzi ya Mungu, hakuna madhara yanaweza kujia yeyote.

ਐਸਾ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਮਨਿ ਚਿਤਿ ਨਿਤਿ ਧਿਆਵਹੁ ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਜੋ ਅੰਤੀ ਅਉਸਰਿ ਲਏ ਛਡਾਇਆ ॥੪॥੭॥੧੩॥੫੧॥
aisaa har naam man chit nit Dhi-aavahu jan naanak jo antee a-osar la-ay chhadaa-i-aa. ||4||7||13||51||
O’ Nanak, with your conscious mind meditate forever on the Name of God, who shall deliver you in the end.
Ee Nanak, kwa akili yako yenye fahamu tafakari milele kuhusu Jina la Mungu, ambaye atakukomboa mwishowe.

We should meet such a True Guru who implants devotional worship of God in the heart, and meeting whom one yearns to listen to God’s praises.
Tunafaa kukutana na Guru wa Kweli kama huyo anayepandikiza ibada ya kujitolea kwa Mungu moyoni, na ambaye kwa kukutana naye mtu anatamani kusikiza sifa za Mungu.

har da-i-aal da-i-aa parabh keenee mayrai man tan mukh har bolee.
The merciful God has shown his mercy, and now throughout my mind and body rings the word of God’s praise.
