Saavan Saras Manaa

Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji

ਸਾਵਣਿ ਸਰਸ ਮਨਾ ਘਣ ਵਰਸਹਿ ਰੁਤਿ ਆਏ ॥
In Saawan, be happy, O my mind.
The rainy season has come,
and the clouds have burst into showers.

ਮੈ ਮਨਿ ਤਨਿ ਸਹੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਪਿਰ ਪਰਦੇਸਿ ਸਿਧਾਏ ॥
My mind and body are pleased by my VaheGuru,
but my beloved has gone away.

ਪਿਰੁ ਘਰਿ ਨਹੀ ਆਵੈ ਮਰੀਐ ਹਾਵੈ ਦਾਮਨਿ ਚਮਕਿ ਡਰਾਏ ॥
My beloved has not come home,
and I am dying of the sorrow of separation.
The lightning flashes, and I am scared.

ਸੇਜ ਇਕੇਲੀ ਖਰੀ ਦੁਹੇਲੀ ਮਰਣੁ ਭਇਆ ਦੁਖੁ ਮਾਏ ॥
My bed is lonely, and I am suffering in agony.
I am dying in pain, O my mother!

ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਨੀਦ ਭੂਖ ਕਹੁ ਕੈਸੀ ਕਾਪੜੁ ਤਨਿ ਨ ਸੁਖਾਵਏ ॥
Tell me – without VaheGuru,
how can I sleep, or feel hungry?
My clothes give no comfort to my body.

ਨਾਨਕ ਸਾ ਸੋਹਾਗਣਿ ਕੰਤੀ ਪਿਰ ਕੈ ਅੰਕਿ ਸਮਾਵਏ ॥੯॥
O Nanak, she alone is a happy soul-bride,
who merges in the being
of her beloved husband VaheGuru. ||9||
