Category: sylvia bagge
Duration: 00:06:30
Description:
This is the first verse, or "pauree" of Japji Sahib (Song of the Soul). The Japjii is thirty-eight verses written by Guru Nanak, the first of the Sikh Gurus. Melody and musical arrangement are by Sylvia Bagge. The Gurmukhi syllables and their translation are found below.

Sochai Soch na hova-ee Jay sochee lakh vaar
Chupai chup na hova-ee Jay Laa-i rahaa liv taar
Bhukhi-aa bhukh na utree Jay bannaa puree-aa bhaar
Sehs siaanpaa lakh ho-eh ta ik na chalai naal
Kiv sachi-aaraa ho-ee-ai kiv koorai tutai paal
Hukam rajaa-ee chalnaa Naanak likhia naal

By thinking and thinking, nothing happens,
Though I may think a thousand times
Deep in Silence, nothing happens
Though the string of longing plays
The hungry people stay hungry
With the weight of the world on their back
You may be incredibly clever but you can't take it home with you
How can I live the truth?
How can I cut through the net of lies
Walk in God's will within and without
O Nanak!
It is written in your Soul
-Guru Nanak Sahib Ji
