Mantra: Thaapiaa na jaai
Thaapiaa na jaai, keeta na ho-i
Aapay aap niranjan so-i
Jin seviaa tin paaiaa maan
Naanak gaaveeai gunee nidhaan
Gaaveeai suneeai man rakheeai bhaao
Dukh parhar sukh ghar lai jaai
Gurmukh naadang gurmukh vedang
Gurmukh rehiaa samaaee
Gur eesar gur gorakh barma gur paarbatee maaee
Jay hau jaanaa aakhaa naahee
Kehanaa kathan na jaaee
Guraa ik dayh bujhaaee
Sabhanaa jeeaa kaa ik daataa
So mai visar na jaaee
He cannot be established or created.
He himself is immaculate and pure.
Those who serve him are honored.
O Nanak, sing of the lord, the treasure of virtue.
Sing, and listen, and let your mind be filled with love.
Your troubles shall be taken far away,
And peace shall fill your heart and home.
The Guru's word is the sound current of the naad,
The Guru's word is the wisdom of the vedas,
The Guru's word is all pervading and permeating.
The Guru is Shiva, the Guru is Vishnu and Brahma,
The Guru is Paarvati and Lakhshmi.
Even knowing god, I cannot describe him,
He cannot be described in words.
The Guru has taught me one thing;
There is only one, the giver of all souls.
May I never forget him!
The Fifth Pauree may be recited when you feel a sense of falure within yourself.
Whe you feel that you are not up to the job, this pauree will grant you all success.
