so means then, aisaa means such, har means the Lord, Dhi-aa-ee-ai means to worship; So then Guru Ji says worship, meditate upon such a great, bountiful Lord, the one who creates all, the one who looks after all, the one who is ichhaa poorak, - fulfills all desires, sarab sukh-daata - the one who gives us peace, the one who ultimately fulfills all of our wishes.so aisaa har Dhi-aa-ee-ai - so meditate upon such a Lord, mayray jee-arhay - o my soul, jee-arhay means soul, taa - then, sarab means all and sukh means peace; then total, complete spiritual peace paavahi means you shall find, obtain, you shall gain, mayray manaa means my mind.

halat palat mukh oojal ho-ee hai nit Dhi-aa-ee-ai har purakh niranjanaa || rahaa-o||
halat means in this world, palat means in lifetimes to come, in worlds to come, in time to come; mukh means your face;oojal means to be shining, to be radiant, shining, to be spreading love; ho-ee hai will become. In this world you meditate upon the satnaam, the true name of the Lord your face will be radiant and in the next world your face will be radiant if nit Dhi-aa-ee-ai, nit means constantly and Dhi-aa-ee-ai means to worship; if constantly you worship and meditate upon har the Lord, the nurturer of the world, purakh being;niranjanaa means the one who is beyond Maaya, beyond this physical world. If you editate upon the Lord whoo is beyond the physical world you yourself will become beyond this physical world. You will realize the ultimate capacity of your soul. You will realize the light inside you. And the realization of that is the realization of the Lord.rahaa-o Guru Sahib Ji says pause and think about this.

jah har simran bha-i-aa tah upaaDh gat keenee vadbhaagee har japnaa ||
jah wherever, har simran worship of the Lord, bha-i-aa means where that occurs, wherever the meditation upon the Lord occurs; tah from that place; upaaDh means all disasters; gat keenee means are liberated literally. So all disasters, all bad karma are liberated from that place where Simran happens. The vibration of that place where Simran happens is such that it affects the atmosphere there. Vibration of the Naam, the Naad of the naam, the sound current of the Naam wipes away all paap of that surrounding. vadbhaagee only those who are fortunate;japnaa means to meditate, har Lord; only those have great fortune who meditate upon the name of the Lord. O Waheguru, I am vaari-aa sacrifice to you, tuDh, sad hee forever and forever. tayray naam vitahu bal jaa-ee, bal jaa-ee I am a sacrifice to your naam, to your name.rahaa-o Pause and think about this.

jan naanak ka-o gur ih mat deenee jap har bhavjal tarnaa. ||2||6||12||
In the last line Guru Raam Das Ji says, jan means servant;ka-o - to; To servant Nanak gur ih mat, ih - this; mat the spiritual understanding, knowledge, spiritual wisdom; deenee means blessed; The Guru has blessed the servant Nanak with this understanding of spiritual knowledge ofjap har meditating upon Hari, the Lord who sustains this world; bhavjal - split into two- bhav and jal means ocean of fear which is what this world is called in Gurbani; tarnaa - to swim across. If you meditate upon the Satnaam Guru Ji is saying we will cross this terrifying, fear-filled ocean. Because as it says in Guru Granth Sahib Ji, nirbhau japai sagal bhau mitai, which means repeating the name of the one who is beyond fear we become fearless. Repeating the true name we find the truth within ourselves. That is what Guru Raam Das Ji is saying to us today. O my mind, do not wonder from place to place, O my mind repeat the name of Satnaam, the true name again and again, many times and if you truly repeat the Satnam yourself, you will feel the feeling of being carefree, the feeling which Dhanaasaree Raag carries. It is a great blessing from Guru Raam Das Ji that we received today and may He bless us that we don't forget that Satnaam, the true name, and may we repeat it again and again.

jap man sat naam sadaa sat naam ||
halat palat mukh oojal ho-ee hai nit Dhi-aa-ee-ai har purakh niranjanaa || rahaa-o||
