Gauree, Fifth Mehla:

Those who implant the Word of the Guru's Shabad within their hearts cut their connections with the five passions. They keep the ten organs under their control; their souls are enlightened. ||1||

They alone acquire such stability,whom God blesses with His Mercy and Grace. ||1||Pause||

Friend and foe are one and the same to them. Whatever they speak is wisdom. Whatever they hear is the Naam, the Name of the Lord.

Whatever they see is meditation. ||2||They awaken in peace and poise; they sleep in peace and poise.That which is meant to be, automatically happens. In peace and poise, they remain detached; in peace and poise, they laugh.

In peace and poise, they remain silent; in peace and poise, they chant. ||3|| In peace and poise they eat; in peace and poise they love.The illusion of duality is easily and totally removed.

They naturally join the Saadh Sangat, the Society of the Holy.In peace and poise, they meet and merge with the Supreme Lord God. ||4||

They are at peace in their homes, and they are at peace while detached.In peace, their bodies' duality is eliminated.Bliss comes naturally to their minds.

They meet the Lord, the Embodiment of Supreme Bliss. ||5||In peaceful poise, they drink in the Ambrosial Nectar of the Naam, the Name of the Lord.In peace and poise, they give to the poor.

Their souls naturally delight in the Lord's Sermon.The Imperishable Lord abides with them. ||6||

In peace and poise, they assume the unchanging position.In peace and poise, the unstruck vibration of the Shabad resounds.In peace and poise, the celestial bells resound.

Within their homes, the Supreme Lord God is pervading. ||7||With intuitive ease, they meet the Lord, according to their karma.With intuitive ease, they meet with the Guru, in the true Dharma.

Those who know, attain the poise of intuitive peace.

Slave Nanak is a sacrifice to them. ||8||3||
