synopsis
(Translated as in The True Name, Vol 1 on CD-ROM)
The sutra
By divine order all form was created,
But his order cannot be described.
Divine order has created all life,
And by it all greatness bestowed;
By divine order are some high and some low,
And pain and pleasure granted;
By his order do some attain salvation,
Or endlessly wander through cycles of death and birth.
All are subject to his order; none is beyond his reach.
Nanak says, He who understands his order becomes freed from his self.
Those who know power will sing of his might.
Knowing charity, some sing of his bounty as the sign.
Some sing of his virtues and his greatness.
Some sing of his knowledge, when scholarship is their bent.
Some sing that he creates the body and turns it back to dust.
Some sing that the life he takes will again be reborn.
Some sing that he is far, far away.
Some sing that he sees all and is everywhere.
There is no end to his attributes,
Though a million describe him in a million ways.
The giver gives eternally, though the receiver tires of receiving;
Since the beginning of time have they subsisted on his endless bounty.
He is the ordainer and by his order does the universe turn.
Says nanak, he is without a care, endlessly blissful.
