mith bolrhaa jee har sajan su-aamee moraa
Satguru Ji begins the Shabad with mith bolrhaa jee har sajan su-aamee moraa. Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj is describing to us the state of union the God centered being has with the Lord, Waheguru, with the Guru. When describing the Guru to us Guru Arjan Dev Ji says mith bolrhaa jee har sajan su-aamee moraa, moraa - my; sajan - my friend; suaamee - my master, AkaalPurakh, the Guru; mith bolrhaa jee - forever mith, sweetly spoken, bolrhaa means the words; His words are always full of sweetness. Does not matter who comes towards the Guru, whether friend or foe, Guru's words are sweetly spoken because Guru is nirvair, Guru is nirbhau- fearless, but Guru is nirvair - without enmity.

ha-o sammal thakee jee oh kaday na bolai ka-uraa
Satgur Ji says ha-o sammal thakee, I try to sammal recall in my mind, thakee je- I am tired because I cannot remember all the time, oh kaday na bolai ka-uraa because my Waheguru, my Lord God, my Guru, my Satgur Paadshah, my Guru Nanak Dev Ji, kaday na -never bolai- speaks kauraa - harshly, never speaks sour words, never speaks words of hurt or hate.

ka-urhaa bol na jaanai pooran bhagvaanai a-ugan ko na chitaaray
ka-urhaa bol na jaanai pooran bhagvaanaiThat pooran - that perfect bhagvaanai - master of all, Akaal Purakh, Waheguru, ka-urhaa bol na jaanai Satgur Paadshah Ji says it's because na jaanai He does not even know how to speak ka-urhaa bol, His words are always soothing, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj's bani, the words of Guru are always soothing. Satgur Paadshah Ji tells us, amrit bachhan saaDh kee banee, saaDh - the eternal Guru, His banee - words are always amrit, are always the nectar of immortality. It was the Guru's words that woke Bhai Daya Singh Ji back to life in Amritsar Sanchaar ceremony. It was Guru's words which kept Baba Deep Singh Ji fighting with their head on the palm of their hand. So their words are immortal and full of Grace, full of nectar. It was the Guru's sweetly spoken words which changed accountable of Kauda Rakash into a saint. It was Guru's sweetly spoken words which changed the robber Sajjan Thhug into a saint. a-ugan ko na chitaaray, a-ugan- the vices that we have within us. The Guru does not keep on reminding us about them again and again. The Guru highlights them, the Guru gives us updesh, gives us the message, a-ugan ko na chitaaray, a-ugan. When Guru Nanak Dev Ji went to Sajjan Thhug, Sajjan, the robber, Guru Sahib Ji sang the Shabad, laid out Sajjan's bad points in front of him and in that one time Sajjan changed over just by listening to that Shabad.

That is what Waheguru Ji does. ik til nahee bhannai ghaalay And even ik til if you have to remember God for a second, til literally means sesame seed; even as small as a seed, even for that amount of time, you remember Waheguru Ji, you do simran, you remember Satgur Ji, ik til nahee bhannai ghaalay he does not even overlook that second.

Bhagat Ravi Daas Ji says keh ravidaas haath pai nayray; God is closer to your than your hands and feet. And if you look at other scriptures the Koran also says that God is closer to you than your jugular vain.
