    Society~~~
     
    1. He will repent Who keeps the company of the evil-doers.
    (Guru I, Prabhati Rag)

    2. In the company of bad people, One faces great sorrows.
    (Guru III, Maru Rag)

    3. The body is full of lust and anger; The company of godly men renders it pure.
    (Guru IV, Gauri Rag)

    4. The society of saints removes all sins.
    ( Guru V, GauriRag)

    5. The society of saints secures comforts, In this world and the next.
    (Guru V, Gauri Rag)

    6. That is the society I crave for, Wherein the Name of the One is remembered.
    (Guru I, Sri Rag)

    7. Seek the company in which the glory of the Lord is sung and the Creator is contemplated;
    In that company chant his glory and remember the Creator.
    (Guru I, Gauri Rag)

    8. Those who have found the society of the holy persons,
    Are dyed fast with the love of the Supreme Being;
    They are freed from all fetters and chains;
    With devotion they worship the Lord,
    Their eyes are pleased with the sight of the Lord,

    Their tongues praise the Lord in all His manifestation.
    With the Guru's Grace, their thirst is extinguished.
    In the love of the Lord, their hearts feel fully satisfied.
    Thy servant serves the Lord in His glory,
    Who is the Primeval Being, the Highest of the high.
    (Guru V, Basant Rag)

    9. It is by great good fortune,
    That one gets the society of the God-loving;
    Unfortunate people grope about in doubt anddarkness;
    The society of the truthful cannot be obtained without good fortune,
    And without such society, man lives in impurity.
    ( Guru IV, Majh Rag)

    10. True society is the school of the True Guru,
    Whefrein we learn to love God,
    And admire his greatness.
    (Guru IV, Kanara Rag)

    Wherein the lovers of truth hold communion with Lord alone.
    (Guru I, Sri Rag)

    12. True society is the treasury of Divine Nam, Where we meet God.
    (Guru I, Sarang Rag)

    13. The dirt of egoism of ages which has soiled the soul,
    Will be removed only in the society of the holy.
    Just as iron floats when tied to timber,

    So will one cross the ocean of life by following
    The Guru's word in the company of saints.
    (Guru IV, Kanara Rag)

    14. O Lord, be so merciful and kind,
    That I pass my days in the society of the saints;
    For, they who forsake Thee,
    Are born to die over and over again,
    And never get rid of worries and grief.
    (Guru V, Ramkali Rag)

    Mind~~~
     
    1. By forcing the mind, one finds not the Lord: many have this wise struggled in vain.
    They tried a thousand clever tricks, but their Raw mind did not accept the Color of the Lord.
    Through Falsehood and Deceit, one Attains not the Lord, for one eats what one sows. (Sri Rag M. 4)

    2. Through the Guru, one stils (the Ego of) one's mind;
    And tests it on the Touchstone of the Word.
    One grapples with one's mind, and settles with it alone;
    And is then at Peace with the mind. (Var of Sri Rag M. 3)

    3. Within the cave (of the mind) is an inexhaustible Treasure.
    Within it resides the unknowable, infinite, He--
    Who Himself is Manifest, Unmanifest. (Majh M. 3)

    4. Thy mind is like the bird, and as are its deeds, it becomes now good, now evil;
    It sits now on the (sweet smelling) Chandan, now on the bough of the
    (poisonous) swallow-wort,
    And then again is attuned to the highest Truth.
    Nanak: The Lord Drives all in His Will: for such, indeed, is His Nature. (Shloka M. 1)

    5. The mind is wild and rare is the one who controls it.
    If it eats the Uneatable, then the mind becomes Pure.
    The God-wards make their minds Beauteous thus;
    They shed their Ego and the sense of Sin. (Gauri Guareri M. 3)

    6. This mind is Shakti, this mind is Shiva,
    This mind is the essence of all the five elements.
    He, who takes this mind to the Higher Regions and there abides he;
    To him (alone) is Revealed the Mystery of the three Worlds. (Rag Gauri Poorbi, Kabirji)

    7. Joy and pain, dispassion and revelry are the play of the Lord.
    Now one is in fear, now in fearlessness; now calm, now lure by wander-lust;
    Now in revelry, now in the state of abandonment;
    Now dedicated to Yoga, worship, austerity, and now enticed away by Doubt,
    And then, through the Lord's Mercy, one Attains the society of the
    Saints and is Imbued with the Love of the Lord. (Asa M. 5)


    8. The mind is like an elephant--wild and intoxicated with its own power:
    And it wanders about in the woods f Illusion, lured by Attachment:
    With Death ever hovering over its head, it goes about here and there,
    But when it meets with the Guru, it finds its Home.
    This mind is born of five elements.
    It is the mind that does (good) Deeds and practises Righteousness,
    And then drunk with power, becomes Wild and Ignorant too,
    But, when it cherishes the Lord's Name, through the Guru's Word, it
    becomes beauteous again.
    This mind finds its Home through the Guru.
    And so becomes Awake to (the Reality of) the three Worlds.
    This mind is detached and also attached, and practises austerities too,
    And also it knows the Quintessence of the Supreme Lord.
    The mind now renounces all sense-desires and I-amness.
    (And then) in it abide Desire and the craving for the Other.
    He who, through the Guru, tastes the Cure-all of the Lord's Name,
    Gathers glory, at the Lord's Court, yea, at God's Abode.

    This mind becomes fearless too by cherishing the Lord's Name, by the Guru's Grace.
    It overpowers the Five (Desires) and slays them;
    And holding its ego in its grip, it binds them down.
    The Mind, by the Guru's Grace, forsakes all other pulls and loves,
    And, through the Guru's Word, awakens to the Lord's Worship.
    Hearing the unstruck Melody (of the Word), the Mind accepts, and
    reflects upon, the Truth of the Word.
    And, Realizing the Self, it is Attuned to the Formless He.

    This Mind becomes immaculate in the Lord's Presence,
    And, Attuned to the Lord's Name, is Imbued with the Loving
    adoration of the Lord, through the Guru's Word. (Asa, M. 1)

    9. If the mind becomes stranger to itself, estranged from it, then, is the whole
    world. (Rag Suhi M. 1)

    10. Is this mind a householder or Detached, abiding in Dispassion?
    Or, is this mind colorless, eternal and ever the same?
    Is the mind-nature mercurial, or one of aloofness?
    Pray, how was the mind afflicted by the sense of 'mineness' ?
    O Pundit, give thought to this mind.
    Why read incessantly and carry an unavailing load?
    It is the Creator-Lord who has made Maya and 'mineness' a part of  our nature,
    And willing thus, has Created the whole creation.
    Pray, know thou this Truth, by the Guru's grace,
    And Surrender ever to the God's Refuge. (Rag Malhar M. 3)

    Creation~~~

    Nor Yogi knows the date, season, month, but the One
    Who Created the Universe, Knoweth alone. (Jap M. 1)

    2. Through the Word is the Creation and the dissolution (of the Universe).
    Through the Word is the Evolution of Creation again. (Majh M. 3)

    Five Passions~~~
     
    1. I have sought Thy Refuge, O King,
    That out of the five Peasants in my Tenancy
    Not one can raise his head (against me),
    And abundance flows through the village. (Sri Rag M. 5)

    2. I am the Warrior of God,
    Meeting with the Guru, the plume of my headgear flutters.
    The audience has assembled and, lo, the Creator Himself Watches me (wrestle)
    The Bugles shriek, the Drums are beat:
    The Wrestlers have entered into the Tourney, and circle about,

    See, how the five furies I trounce and humble,
    For the Guru's Hand is at my back. (Sri Rag M. 5)

    3. Wrath and lust destroy the body.
    As flux melts the gold. (Ramkali, Dakhni Onkar, M. 1)

    4. The deer, the fish, the bumble-bee, the moth, and the elephant
    Are destroyed each by a single desire. (2)
    He, who lives with five passions, what hope can he have (of redumption) [Asa, Ravidas]

    5. Within this body are hid the five thieves-lust, wrath, greed, attachment and ego.

    They steal away the nectar (within us), but, in our egocentricity, we know
    it not, and lo, no one hears our plaint ! (Sorath, M. 3)

    6. In the body's furnace is cast the iron of the mind: it is heated by the five fires.
    And the coals are of the sins, stacked with the tongs of care. And lo, the
    the mind is burnt !

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1. Lust, wrath, greed, infatuation and ego.

    2. The deer is enticed away by music; the fish by taste, the bumble-bee by smell;the moth by light, the elephant by lust.

    Devotion~~~
     
    1. Through Devotion, the devotee attains glory. And, imbued with Truth, he merges in the peace of Poise. (Dhanasri M. 3, 4)

    2. Without contemplation of the Lord, the life is ever on fire, even though one lives long like a serpent, and even if he has dominions over the nine divisions of the earth. In the end, he leaves the game. (Todi, M. 5)

    3. When the boat is full of holes, how can one stop the waters from rushing in? So, contemplate thou the One whose boat it is, and by whom the sinners are also ferried across along with the pious. (Todi, M. 5)

    4. O Mother, I am in love with my Lord. This for me is the way of works, this the righteous duty, this the meditation. The Lord's Name is for me the pure conduct. This for me is the life-breath, the life's treasure that I see the presence of my Lord all over. On the highway, at the river bank, this alone is my sustenance, that my mind keeps ever the companionship of
    my Lord. (Todi M. 5)

    5. They who sing Thy Praises, O Creator Lord, they die not ever, nor grieve. (Todi M. 5)

    6. Singing the Praise of the eternal, indestructible Lord, the stubborn intoxication of lust and wrath cools off. (Todi, M. 5)

    7. Contemplating the Lord, one gathers wisdom, all the treasures, all psychic-powers all peace. (Rag Bairari, M. 4)

    8. Without the Lord's every other love is false, for it forsakes one in a moment. (Bairari M. 4)

    9. My Lord is my friend, kinsman, brother and son. Wheresoever I see, I see Him keep my company ever. The Lord's Name is my caste, my honor, my riches, and my happiness and poise and bliss and peace. The contemplation of the Lord is my coat-of-mail. For, even myriads of weapons can pierce it not. The Lord's Feet are my refuge and my fortress, which neither the thorn of Death pierceth nor the Yama overwhelms me. (Suhi, M. 5)

    10. If the skies out with a thunder-storm, I'll still go to see my Guru. Even if the stormy sea be in the way, I, his seeker, will cross it to go to his shore. As the man dies without water, so does the seeker without the Guru. As the earth looks beauteous when it rains, so does the seeker bloom on meeting with the Guru. I seek to be the slave of thy slaves, O Guru, and call on thee in the mood of prayer. (Rag Suhi, M. 4, Ashtapadis)

    11. As the fish lives not without water, do what one may, so the Lord's Saint lives not without the Lord. Without the Lord's Name dies he. (Rag Suhi, M. 4, Ashtapadis)

    12. The Lord protects the honor of His Devotees, age after age. A Devotee is he who is turned Godwards, age after age. A Devotee is he who s turned Godwards and through the Word, dispels his ego. Dispels he his ego through the Word and is pleasing to the Lord whose Word is True. He is dedicated truly ever to the Lord. True and pure is the way of the Devotee for he loves the True Name. (Rag Suhi, M. 3)
