The 4th Shantt at Angg 546, starts with a warning to all. As you commit your sins, no friend will come forward to share the burden of your lekhas.
“Paap kamavdeyian tera koye na beli Ram.”
ਪਾਪ ਕਮਾਵਦਿਆ ਤੇਰਾ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਬੇਲੀ ਰਾਮ ॥”
The entire Shantt recounts the miserable life of a manmukh. But Gurbani always ends on a note of optimism. Thus, Guru Ji says, if one takes to Naam, he can be saved.
“Sukh sahaj anand binodh sadh hi Gunn Gopal nit gaavhiye.”
ਸੁਖ ਸਹਜ ਅਨਦ ਬਿਨੋਦ ਸਦ ਹੀ ਗੁਨ ਗੁਪਾਲ ਨਿਤ ਗਾਈਐ ॥”
Shantt no. 5 is in the form of an Ardas, in utter humility.
“Tu Samrath Vada meri matt thori Ram.”
ਤੂ ਸਮਰਥੁ ਸਦਾ ਹਮ ਦੀਨ ਭੇਖਾਰੀ ਰਾਮ ॥”
Shantt no. 6 starts with a stark reminder from the Guru that all we get entangled in, is transitory and perishable. Only Naam is Permanent.
“Binvant Nanak bin Sadhsangam sabh mithiya sansari.”
ਬਿਨਵੰਤ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਮ ਸਭ ਮਿਥਿਆ ਸੰਸਾਰੀ ॥੧॥”
In the final pada, Guru Ji speaks of God’s Forgiving Nature.
“Dhar Anugroho Apna kar leena Ram.”
“ਧਾਰਿ ਅਨੁਗ੍ਰਹੋ ਅਪਨਾ ਕਰਿ ਲੀਨਾ ਰਾਮ ॥”
Next comes Bihagde Ki Vaar M.4. It has 21 Pauris and 43 Sloks. The central theme is Guru sewa. It always brings blessings. The Vaar also explores the conduct and miseries faced by those who do not engage in sewa of the Guru (Shabad).
The Vaar starts with a simple, profound reminder.
“Gur sewa te sukh paaiyeh horh the sukh na bhaal.”
“ਗੁਰ ਸੇਵਾ ਤੇ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਹੋਰ ਥੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਨ ਭਾਲਿ ॥”
The Vaar discusses various aspects of the lives of manmukhs, who serve their egos (not the Guru), and commit atrocities, which ruin them. The blessed life of the gurmukhs who serve their Guru is highlighted too.
The Pauris are all in Praise of God. He is the Sole Creator, the Only Doer, the Cause and the Event, too.
In Pauri no. 6 at Angg 550, Guru Ji says He is the Field, the Farmer too, and He Himself grows and grinds the corn. He Himself Cooks and puts Food in the dishes, and Himself sits down to eat. He is the Water and He gives the toothpick, and offers the mouthwash. He Himself calls and seats the sanggat and bids them goodbye. On those He chooses to bless with His Mercy, He makes them walk in His Will.
“Aape dharti Aape hai rahak Aap jamaiye pisaavhe; Aap pakavhe Aape bhande de bharose Aape hi beh khaave; Aape jal Aape de chingha Aape chuli bharave; Aape sanggat sadh bahale Aape vidha karavhe; jis nu Kirpal Hove Har Aape tis nu Hukam manaavhe.”
