ha-o panth dasaa-ee nit kharhee ko-ee parabh dasay tin jaa-o.
I stand by the wayside and ask the Way. If only someone would share with me the Way to God, I would go with him.
Nasimama kando ya barabara na kuulizia njia. Iwapo mtu tu angeshiriki nami njia inayoelekea kwa Mungu, ningeenda kwake.

ਜਿਨੀ ਮੇਰਾ ਪਿਆਰਾ ਰਾਵਿਆ ਤਿਨ ਪੀਛੈ ਲਾਗਿ ਫਿਰਾਉ ॥

Katika unyenyekevu wa kina, natamani kuanguka miguuni pa Guru kamili,

ਨਿਮਾਣਿਆ ਗੁਰੁ ਮਾਣੁ ਹੈ ਗੁਰੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਕਰੇ ਸਾਬਾਸਿ ॥
nimaani-aa gur maan hai gur satgur karay saabaas.
The Guru is the Honor of the dishonored. The Guru, the True Guru, brings hope and applause to those left behind.
Kudharauliwa. Guru, Guru wa kweli, analeta matumaini na shukrani kwa wale walioachwa nyuma.

ਬਿਨੁ ਭਾਗਾ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਨਾ ਥੀਐ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਬਹਿ ਰੋਇ ॥
bin bhaagaa darsan naa thee-ai bhaagheen bahi ro-ay.
But without good fortune, His Blessed Vision is not obtained. The unfortunate ones just sit and cry.
Lakini bila bahati nzuri, Mtazamo wake uliobarikiwa hauwezi kupatwa. Wasio na bahati nzuri wanakaa tu na nakulia.

ਜੋ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਭਾਣਾ ਸੋ ਥੀਆ ਧੁਰਿ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨ ਮੇਟੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩॥
jo har parabh bhaanaa so thee-aa Dhur likhi-aa na maytai ko-ay. ||3||
All things happen according to the Will of God. No one can erase the pre-ordained Writ of Destiny.
Vitu vyote vinatendeka kulingana na Wasia wa Mungu. Hakuna mtu anaweza kufuta maandishi yaliyoagiziwa mapema ya hatima.

ਆਪੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਆਪਿ ਹਰਿ ਆਪੇ ਮੇਲਿ ਮਿਲਾਇ ॥

O’ Nanak, He Himself is the life of the entire universe, and ultimately all merge in Him just as water merges in water.
Ee Nanak, Mungu mwenyewe ni uhai wa ulimwengu mzima, na mwishowe wote wanaungana ndani mwake kama tu maji yanavyoungana na maji.

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥
sireeraag mehlaa 4.
Siree Raag, by the Fourth Guru:
Siree Raag, na Guru wa nne:

ਰਸੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਰਸੁ ਅਤਿ ਭਲਾ ਕਿਤੁ ਬਿਧਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਰਸੁ ਖਾਇ ॥
ras amrit naam ras at bhalaa kit biDh milai ras khaa-ay.
Delight in the immortalizing nectar of His Name is exquisite. But how can one obtain it and enjoy it?
Furahia nekta inayotawaza uhai wa milele wa jina lake ni nzuri. Lakini mtu atawezaje kuipata na kuifurahia?

ਜਾਇ ਪੁਛਹੁ ਸੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਤੁਸਾ ਕਿਉ ਕਰਿ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਆਇ ॥
jaa-ay puchhahu sohaaganee tusaa ki-o kar mili-aa parabh aa-ay.
To get to taste the Essence of Naam, go and ask the happy soul-brides what technique they used that God came to meet them.
Kupata kionjo cha kiini cha Naam, nenda ukaulize roho kama bi harusi wenye furaha ujuzi gani walitumia ndio Mungu aje kukutana nao.

ਓਇ ਵੇਪਰਵਾਹ ਨ ਬੋਲਨੀ ਹਉ ਮਲਿ ਮਲਿ ਧੋਵਾ ਤਿਨ ਪਾਇ ॥੧॥
o-ay vayparvaah na bolnee ha-o mal mal Dhovaa tin paa-ay. ||1||
But they being care-free (above any kind of self-praise), do not say much; I repeatedly rub and wash their feet. (request them very humbly to answer)
Lakini wao wakiwa bila mawazo yoyote (wamezidi aina yoyote ya majisifu), hawazungumzi sana; mara kwa mara nilisugua na kuosha miguu yao. (kuwaomba kwa unyenyekevu wanipe jibu)

ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਮਿਲਿ ਸਜਣ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਸਾਰਿ ॥
bhaa-ee ray mil sajan har gun saar.
(Out of mercy, they reply:) O’ Brother, go and meet with your spiritual friend (the Guru), and meditate upon the Glorious Praises of God.
(Kutokana na huruma yao, wanajibu:) Ee Ndugu, nenda ukakutane na rafiki wako wa kiroho (Guru), na utafakari kuhusu sifa tukufu za Mungu.

ਸਜਣੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਹੈ ਦੁਖੁ ਕਢੈ ਹਉਮੈ ਮਾਰਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
sajan satgur purakh hai dukh kadhai ha-umai maar. ||1|| rahaa-o.
(They continue to say:) The True Guru, the Primal Being, is your Friend who shall drive out your pain and subdue your ego.
(Wanaendelea kusema:) Guru wa kweli, Kiumbe cha Asili, ni rafiki yako ambaye ataondoa uchungu wako na kushinda ubinafsi wako.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖੀਆ ਸੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਤਿਨ ਦਇਆ ਪਈ ਮਨਿ ਆਇ ॥
gurmukhee-aa sohaaganee tin da-i-aa pa-ee man aa-ay.
The followers of the Guru are the happy soul-brides; their minds are filled with kindness.
Wafuasi wa Guru ndio roho kama bi harusi wenye furaha; akili zao zimejawa na ukarimu.

ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਵਚਨੁ ਰਤੰਨੁ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਮੰਨੇ ਸੁ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਖਾਇ ॥
satgur vachan ratann hai jo mannay so har ras khaa-ay.
They told me that the Word (advice) of the Guru is precious like a jewel. One who believes in it and lives according to the advice, tastes the Sublime Essence of the Almighty.
Waliniambia ya kwamba Neno (ushauri) wa Guru ni yenye thamana kama kito. Yule anayeliamini na kuishi kulingana na ushauri huo, anaonja kiini tukufu cha Mwenyezi.

ਸੇ ਵਡਭਾਗੀ ਵਡ ਜਾਣੀਅਹਿ ਜਿਨ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਖਾਧਾ ਗੁਰ ਭਾਇ ॥੨॥
say vadbhaagee vad jaanee-ahi jin har ras khaaDhaa gur bhaa-ay. ||2||
Those who partake of God’s Sublime Essence and enjoy this delight, through the Guru’s Love, are considered to be great and truly fortunate.
Wale wanaoshiriki kiini tukufu cha Mungu na kufurahia furaha hii, kupitia upendo wa Guru, wanafikiriwa kuwa wakuu na wenye bahati nzuri kwa kweli.

ਇਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਵਣਿ ਤਿਣਿ ਸਭਤੁ ਹੈ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਨਹੀ ਖਾਇ ॥
ih har ras van tin sabhat hai bhaagheen nahee khaa-ay.
This Sublime Essence of God, the delight of Naam is in every blade and straw of the universe but the unfortunate ones do not taste it.
Hiki kiini tukufu cha Mungu, furaha ya Naam ipo katika kila jani na majani ya ulimwengu lakini wasio na bahati hawaionji.

ਬਿਨੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪਲੈ ਨਾ ਪਵੈ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਰਹੇ ਬਿਲਲਾਇ ॥
bin satgur palai naa pavai manmukh rahay billaa-ay.
Without the True Guru, this delight is not obtained. The self-willed continue to live in misery.
Bila Guru wa kweli, furaha hii haipatwi. Wenye wasia ya kibinafsi wanaendelea kuishi katika taabu.

ਓਇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਆਗੈ ਨਾ ਨਿਵਹਿ ਓਨਾ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਬਲਾਇ ॥੩॥
o-ay satgur aagai naa niveh onaa antar kroDh balaa-ay. ||3||
They do not bow before the True Guru (do not accept the Guru’s advice) because in their hearts, they have the demon of anger.
Hawasujudu mbele za Guru wa kweli (hawakubali ushauri wa Guru) kwa sababu mioyoni mwao, wana pepo wa hasira.

ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਆਪਿ ਹੈ ਆਪੇ ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
har har har ras aap hai aapay har ras ho-ay.
God Himself is Naam and the Sublime Essence. (He pervades everywhere as bliss and the support of everyone’s life).
Mungu mwenyewe ni Naam na Kiini Tukufu. (anaenea kote kama furaha tele na nguzo ya maisha ya kila mmoja).

ਆਪਿ ਦਇਆ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਵਸੀ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਚੋਇ ॥
aap da-i-aa kar dayvsee gurmukh amrit cho-ay.
In His Kindness, He blesses those who follow Guru’s Word. The elixir of God’s Name, the Ambrosial Nectar of Naam trickles down in them.
Katika ukarimu wake, anabariki wale wanaofuata Neno la Guru. Mchanganyiko wa jina la Mungu, nekta ya Ambrosia ya Naam inatiririka chini kwao.

ਸਭੁ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਹਰਿਆ ਹੋਇਆ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਵਸਿਆ ਮਨਿ ਸੋਇ ॥੪॥੫॥੬੯॥
sabh tan man hari-aa ho-i-aa naanak har vasi-aa man so-ay. ||4||5||69||
Then, the body and mind totally blossom and flourish; O’ Nanak, the Almighty comes to dwell in the mind.
Kisha, akili na mwili inachanuka na kunawiri kabisa; Ee Nanak, Mwenyezi anakuja kuishi akilini.

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥
sireeraag mehlaa 4.
Siree Raag, by the Fourth Guru:
Siree Raag, na Guru wa nne:

ਦਿਨਸੁ ਚੜੈ ਫਿਰਿ ਆਥਵੈ ਰੈਣਿ ਸਬਾਈ ਜਾਇ ॥
dinas charhai fir aathvai rain sabaa-ee jaa-ay.
The day dawns, and then it ends, and the night also passes away.
Siku inapambazuka, kusha inakamilika, na usiku pia unapita.

ਆਵ ਘਟੈ ਨਰੁ ਨਾ ਬੁਝੈ ਨਿਤਿ ਮੂਸਾ ਲਾਜੁ ਟੁਕਾਇ ॥
aav ghatai nar naa bujhai nit moosaa laaj tukaa-ay.
Life is diminishing, but one does not realize it. Each day, the mouse of death is gnawing away at the rope of life.
Uhai unadidimia, lakini hakuna anayegundua hii. Kila siku, panya wa kifo anatafuna kamba ya uhai.

ਗੁੜੁ ਮਿਠਾ ਮਾਇਆ ਪਸਰਿਆ ਮਨਮੁਖੁ ਲਗਿ ਮਾਖੀ ਪਚੈ ਪਚਾਇ ॥੧॥
gurh mithaa maa-i-aa pasri-aa manmukh lag maakhee pachai pachaa-ay. ||1||
Like flies clinging to molasses and getting stuck, those who are conceited, cling to worldly riches (or Maya) and are consumed by it.
Kama nzi wakikwamilia molasi na kunaswa, wale ambao wana majivuno ya kibinafsi, wanakwamilia utajiri wa kidunia (ama Maya) na wanamalizwa nao.

ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਮੈ ਮੀਤੁ ਸਖਾ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸੋਇ ॥
bhaa-ee ray mai meet sakhaa parabh so-ay.
O’ Brother, God is my Friend and Companion.
Ee ndugu, Mungu ni rafiki yangu na mwendani wangu.

ਪੁਤੁ ਕਲਤੁ ਮੋਹੁ ਬਿਖੁ ਹੈ ਅੰਤਿ ਬੇਲੀ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
put kalat moh bikh hai ant baylee ko-ay na ho-ay. ||1|| rahaa-o.
Emotional attachment to children and spouse is poison (because, it affects spiritual progress adversely) and in the end, no one goes along with you as your helper.
Kiambatanisho cha kihisia kwa watoto na mwenzio wa ndoa ni sumu, (kwa sababu kinaathiri maendeleo ya kiroho vibaya) na mwishowe, hakuna mtu anaambatana nawe kama msaidizi wako.

ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਲਿਵ ਉਬਰੇ ਅਲਿਪਤੁ ਰਹੇ ਸਰਣਾਇ ॥
gurmat har liv ubray alipat rahay sarnaa-ay.
Those who embrace love for God through the Guru’s teachings, are saved. They live in the Sanctuary of God and at the same time, remain detached from the world.
Wale wanaokumbatia upendo kwa Mungu kupitia mafundisho ya Guru, wanakombolewa. Wanaishi pahala patakatifu pa Mungu na wakati huo huo, wanabaki wamejitenga kutoka dunia.
