Chetnaa Hai Tou Chet Lai

ਤਿਲੰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੯ ਕਾਫੀ
Tilang Mehalaa 9 Kaafee

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
One Universal Creator VaheGuru.
By The Grace Of The True Guru:

ਚੇਤਨਾ ਹੈ ਤਉ ਚੇਤ ਲੈ ਨਿਸਿ ਦਿਨਿ ਮੈ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ॥
If you are conscious,
then be conscious of Him night and day, O mortal.

ਛਿਨੁ ਛਿਨੁ ਅਉਧ ਬਿਹਾਤੁ ਹੈ ਫੂਟੈ ਘਟ ਜਿਉ ਪਾਨੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
Each and every moment,
your life is passing away,
like water from a cracked pitcher. ||1||Pause||

ਹਰਿ ਗੁਨ ਕਾਹਿ ਨ ਗਾਵਹੀ ਮੂਰਖ ਅਗਿਆਨਾ ॥
Why do you not sing the glorious praises
of VaheGuru, you ignorant fool?

ਝੂਠੈ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਲਾਗਿ ਕੈ ਨਹਿ ਮਰਨੁ ਪਛਾਨਾ ॥੧॥
You are attached to false greed,
and you do not even consider death. ||1||

ਅਜਹੂ ਕਛੁ ਬਿਗਰਿਓ ਨਹੀ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵੈ ॥
Even now, no harm has been done,
if you will only sing VaheGuru’s praises.

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਤਿਹ ਭਜਨ ਤੇ ਨਿਰਭੈ ਪਦੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥੧॥
Says Nanak, by meditating and vibrating upon Him,
you shall obtain the state of fearlessness. ||2||1||



ਤਿਲੰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥
Tilang Mehalaa 4 ||

ਨਿਤ ਨਿਹਫਲ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਇ ਬਫਾਵੈ ਦੁਰਮਤੀਆ ॥
The evil-minded person continually
does fruitless deeds,
all puffed up with pride.

ਜਬ ਆਣੈ ਵਲਵੰਚ ਕਰਿ ਝੂਠੁ ਤਬ ਜਾਣੈ ਜਗੁ ਜਿਤੀਆ ॥੧॥
When he brings home what he has acquired,
by practicing deception and falsehood,
he thinks that he has conquered the world. ||1||

ਐਸਾ ਬਾਜੀ ਸੈਸਾਰੁ ਨ ਚੇਤੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮਾ ॥
Such is the drama of the world,
that he does not contemplate
VaheGuru’s Name.

ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਬਿਨਸੈ ਸਭੁ ਝੂਠੁ ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਧਿਆਇ ਰਾਮਾ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
In an instant, all this false play shall perish;
O my mind, meditate on VaheGuru. ||Pause||

ਸਾ ਵੇਲਾ ਚਿਤਿ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਜਿਤੁ ਆਇ ਕੰਟਕੁ ਕਾਲੁ ਗ੍ਰਸੈ ॥
He does not think of that time,
when Death, the Torturer,
shall come and seize him.

ਤਿਸੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਏ ਛਡਾਇ ਜਿਸੁ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਕਰਿ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਵਸੈ ॥੨॥੨॥
O Nanak, VaheGuru saves that one,
within whose heart VaheGuru,
in His Kind Mercy, dwells. ||2||2||
