  • Translation:

    Pilgrimages, austerities, compassion, and charity,

    By themselves bring only an iota of merit.

    Listening, accepting with humility and love in your mind,

    Cleanse yourself at the sacred shrine deep within your being.

    All virtues are yours, O Lord, I have none at all.

    Without virtue, there is no devotional worship.

    I bow unto the Lord of the world, to his word, to Brahma the creator.

    God is true and beautiful; his mind is forever joyful.

    What was that time, and what was that moment?

    What was that day, and what was that date?

    What was that season, and what was that month, when the universe was created?

    The Pandits, the religious scholars cannot find that time,

    Even if it is written in the Puraanas.

    That time is not known to the qazis, who study the Koran.

    The day and date are not known to the yogis,

    Nor is the month or the season.

    The Creator who fashioned this creation - he alone knows.

    How can we speak of him? How can we praise him?

    How can we describe him? How can we know him?

    O Nanak, everyone speaks of him, each more clever than the others.

    Great is the master, Great is his name.

    Whatever happens is by his will.

    O Nanak, one who claims to know everything,

    Shall not be decorated in the world hereafter.
