    Santaho, Ram Das Sarovar Neeka

    Vich kartaa purkh khalo-aa, Vaal na vingaa ho-aa

  • Translation:

    Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime

    Under the protection of the Creator, no harm can come to me

    Chanting the Lord’s name, Har, Har, my mistakes are washed away

    Whomsoever bathes in the nectar tank is acclaimed all over the world;

    The desires of that person’s mind are fulfilled

    Bathing (in this sacredness) the mind becomes peaceful, as it meditates on God

    Those who bathe here, they liberate and bless themselves and all their generations

    Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime

    One who bathes in the pool of the Saints achieves the state of supreme bliss

    There is no death, there is no coming and going;

    There is only meditating on the name of the Lord, Har, Har

    He alone knows the wisdom of the Lord, on whom this Lord extends merciful kindness

    Baba Nanak seeks the sanctuary of God; All his cares and worries are dispelled

    Those who bathe here, they liberate and bless themselves and all their generations

    Oh Saints, the purifying pool of Ram Das is sublime
