  • Translation:

    In the realm of Karma, the Word is power.

    No one else dwells there, except the warriors of great power, the spiritual heroes.

    They are totally fulfilled, imbued with the lord's essence.

    Myriads of Sitas are there, cool and calm in their majestic glory.

    Their beauty cannot be described.

    Neither death, nor deception, comes to those in whose heart the lord abides.

    There, the devotees of many worlds abide.

    They are full of joy, their minds are imbued with the true lord.

    In the realm of truth, the Formless Lord dwells.

    Having created the creation, he watches over it.

    By his glance of grace, he bestows happiness.

    There are planets, solar systems, and galaxies.

    If one speaks of them, there is no limit, no end.

    There are worlds upon worlds of his creation.

    As he commands so do they exist.

    He watches over it all, and contemplating the creation, he rejoices!

    O Nanak, to describe this is as hard as steel!
