Mantra: Teerath Naavaa
Teerath Naavaa jay tis bhaavaa
Vin bhaanay ki naa-i karee
Jaytee sirath upaaee vaykhaa
Vin karma ki milai la-ee
Mat vich ratan javaahar maanik
Jay ik gur kee sikh sunee
Guraa ik dayh bujha-ee
Sabhanaa jeea ka ik daataa
So mai visar na jaa-ee
If I am pleasing to him, then that is my pilgrimage and cleansing bath.
Without pleasing him, what good are ritual cleansings?
Gazing upon the created beings, without the karma of good actions,
What are they given to receive?
Within the mind are gems, jewels and rubies,
From listening to the Guru's teachings, even once.
The Guru has taught me one thing:
There is only the one, the giver of all souls.
May I never forget him!
