SATGUR SAATHE GOTTHADDEE KEEJE
BY PEER SADARDEEN
jeere vaalaa satgur saathe gotthaddee keeje
ane neeto neet ameeras peeje - re vaalaa

Oh loved one, have hearty conversations with the True Guide
and drink the holy water (water of life - mercy- geenaans) every day.
The Lord, the Master is seated having kindled the Light. Then worship
(Him) in a loving manner.
Oh loved one, the Lord has arrived at my courtyard (doorstep) and has
brought along with Him countless crores of spirits and has brought
good news for the fourteen universes.
jeere vaalaa janamo janam nee dohaagann hotee
te sohaagann keedhee chhe saamee - re vaalaa
lakh choraasee naa ba(n)dh chhoddaavyaa
evaa malee-aa chhe a(n)tar jaamee - re vaalaa........2
Oh loved ones, for many births I have been in an unmarried state,
and the Lord has now married me (by coming to visit me, or by entering my heart).
He has freed me from the cycles of eighty four lakh births and rebirths. Such is the
knower of my heart (interior), whom I have attained.
jeere vaalaa aad neera(n)jan agam agochar
navshaah naam dharaavyaa - re vaalaa
hu(n) baleehaaree te satgur nee
je am gher saamee bhale aavyaa - re vaalaa...........3
Oh loved ones, in the very beginning, the Lord was unknowable,
mysterious and imperceptible. He then assumed the name (form) of the
bridegroom (navshaah). I have sacrificed myself for this True Guide,
whose arival to my home, I hail.
jeere vaalaa dev jugatmaa(n) me pari bhram deetthaa
te satgur saaheb soi - re vaalaa
janamo janamanee sharannaagat raakhee
te aveechal pad mugataai - re vaalaa.................4
In the world of spirits, I witness Him, as the Supreme Lord.
He indeed is the True Guide, the Imaam. He has accepted my surrender
and submission of many births and has bestowed the everlasting
exalted rank of freedom.
jeere vaalaa pad mugateenaa sarave saadh leennaa(n)
to sat cheet aana(n)d - re vaalaa
kahe gur sohodev amane sree haree maleeyaa
jem saritaa saayar maa(n)he samaannee - re vaalaa....5
Oh loved ones, all the saints (devoted souls) will attain the exalted
rank of freedom which contains the experience of the Truth,
Consciousness and Joy (sat chit anand). The Guide Sohdev
(Peer Sadardeen) says: "we have attained the Lord in the manner
of small rivers meeting and blending with the ocean".
[The state of sat chit anand is the one in which the truth,
consciousness or faith and anand occur simultaneously.
Joy accompanies true faith and is indeed the sign of true faith.
One cannot have one without the other.]
