Page 355- Asa Mahalla 1- ਭੋਜਨੁ ਭਾਉ ਭਰਮੁ ਭਉ ਭਾਗੈ ॥ With the diet of His Love, doubt and fear depart. ਪਾਹਰੂਅਰਾ ਛਬਿ ਚੋਰੁ ਨ ਲਾਗੈ ॥ With the Lord as your night watchman, no thief will dare to break in. ਤਿਲਕੁ ਲਿਲਾਟਿ ਜਾਣੈ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਏਕੁ ॥ Let the knowledge of the One God be the ceremonial mark on your forehead. ਬੂਝੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਬਿਬੇਕੁ ॥੪॥ Let the realization that God is within you be your discrimination. ||4|| ਆਚਾਰੀ ਨਹੀ ਜੀਤਿਆ ਜਾਇ ॥ Through ritual actions, God cannot be won over; ਪਾਠ ਪੜੈ ਨਹੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਪਾਇ ॥ By reciting sacred scriptures, His value cannot be estimated. ਅਸਟ ਦਸੀ ਚਹੁ ਭੇਦੁ ਨ ਪਾਇਆ ॥ The eighteen Puraanas and the four Vedas do not know His mystery. ਨਾਨਕ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਦਿਖਾਇਆ ॥੫॥੨੦॥ O Nanak, the True Guru has shown me the Lord God. ||5||20||
