Gurmukh piareo Sathiguru Arjan Sahibjee is speaking to us today. Guru Sahibjee says,

Burae kaam ko ooth khaloeiaa |
The manmukh - the mind centered being ooth khaloeiaa - meaning to get up straight away, effortlessly rise up. What does the manmukh - the mind centered being get up for? - The burae kaam - burae means bad, kaam means things. In order to do bad things, bad deeds the mind centered being - manmukh - that person who is far from the Guru's teachings, doesn't listen to the Guru's teaching, does not come into the sangat, does come into Guru's congregation. That person gets up early and does what? - evil deeds.

Naam kee baelaa pai pai soeiaa |1|

At the time its amritvela, time to go to the gurdwara, time to go to the sangat to listen to keertan, to aasaa dee vaar - at that time the person goes to sleep. Guru Sahibjee says, burae kaam Ko ooth khaloeiaa - In this human life he gets up for evil deeds but naam kee baelaa pai pai soeiaa - this is the time to meditate upon the Lord but pai pai soeiaa - but he sleeps in the sleep, in the intoxication of, in the false illusion of maya.

Tho kish paaeeai jo hoeeai raenaa |
They will tell us that tho kish paaeeai - you'll only find some sort of understanding jo hoeeai raenaa - when you become the dust of the feet of all. What does that mean? - To bring humility into your life. Just as the dust doesn't complain about being trampled. So let your ego be trampled.

Jisehi bujhaaeae this naam lainaa |1| rehaao |2|8|
That person who bujhaaeae - who understands this, who understands that the ego must be trampled this naam lainaa - that person can truly meditate upon naam - the name of the Lord. Rehaao - Gurujee says pause and think about this.
