I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.

The Ambrosial Nectar

The Ambrosial Nectar rains down on us! Its drops are so delightful!
Meeting the Guru, the Best Friend, with intuitive ease, the mortal falls in love with the Lord.
The Lord comes into the temple of the body, when it pleases God's Will;
the soul-bride rises up, and sings His Glorious Praises.
In each and every home, the Husband Lord ravishes and enjoys the happy soul-brides; so why has He forgotten me?
The sky is overcast with heavy, low-hanging clouds; the rain is delightful,
and my Beloved's Love is pleasing to my mind and body.
O Nanak, the Ambrosial Nectar of Gurbani rains down; the Lord, in His Grace, has come into the home of my heart.

I am neither male nor female, nor am I sexless.
I am the Peaceful One, whose form is self-effulgent, powerful radiance.

As fragrance abides in the flower
As reflection is within the mirror,
So does your Lord abide within you,
Why search for him without?

I am not the born; how can there be either birth or death for me?

In Assu, come, my Beloved; the soul-bride is grieving to death. She can only meet Him, when God leads her to meet Him; she is ruined by the love of duality. If she is plundered by falsehood, then her Beloved forsakes her.

He cannot be reduced

By thinking, He cannot be reduced to thought, even by thinking hundreds of thousands of times.
By remaining silent, inner silence is not obtained, even by remaining lovingly absorbed deep within.
The hunger of the hungry is not appeased, even by piling up loads of worldly goods.
Hundreds of thousands of clever tricks, but not even one of them will go along with you in the end.
So how can you become truthful? And how can the veil of illusion be torn away?
O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will.
