  • Translation:

    By his Command, bodies come into being;

    His command cannot be described.

    By his command, souls come into being.

    By his command, glory and greatness are obtained.

    By his command, some are high, and some are low;

    By his written command, pain and pleasure are obtained.

    Some, by his command, are blessed and forgiven,

    Others, by his command, wander aimlessly forever.

    All are subject to his command,

    No one is beyond his command.

    O Nanak, one who understands his command,

    Does not speak in ego.
