748.) First cause is God

Page 748- Soohi Mahalla 5- ਜਬ ਕਛੁ ਨ ਸੀਓ ਤਬ ਕਿਆ ਕਰਤਾ ਕਵਨ ਕਰਮ ਕਰਿ ਆਇਆ ॥ When nothing existed, what deeds were being done? And what karma caused anyone to be born at all? ਅਪਨਾ ਖੇਲੁ ਆਪਿ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖੈ ਠਾਕੁਰਿ ਰਚਨੁ ਰਚਾਇਆ ॥੧॥ The Lord Himself set His play in motion, and He Himself beholds it. He created the Creation. ||1|| ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਰਾਇ ਮੁਝ ਤੇ ਕਛੂ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥ O my Sovereign Lord, I cannot do anything at all by myself. ਆਪੇ ਕਰਤਾ ਆਪਿ ਕਰਾਏ ਸਰਬ ਨਿਰੰਤਰਿ ਸੋਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ He Himself is the Creator, He Himself is the Cause. He is pervading deep within all. ||1||Pause||
