The sutra
If the body is covered with dirt,
Water can wash it away.
If the clothes are soiled and polluted,
Soap and water can wash them clean.
Even if mind is filled with evil,
Love for his name can dye you in his hue.
Saint or sinner are no empty words;
All our actions have been recorded.
Man sows and he himself reaps the harvest.
Nanak says, by divine order are some saved and others reborn.
By visiting holy places, austerities, compassion, and good deeds,
You may gain respect from others;
But he who listens to God and meditates on his name,
His heart is filled with love and he is deeply cleansed.
All virtues are yours, o lord. Nothing is in me.
Without virtuous actions, no true devotion exists.
Yours is the only true word. You are the sound.
You are Brahma. Your power is magnificent and self-directing.
What was that time, what date, what season,
What month when you assumed form and creation began?
The pundits knew it not,
Or they would have written it in the holy books;
Neither did the Kazis know,
Or they would have put it in the Koran;
Nor did the yogis know the day, the time,
The season and month when it happened.
The creator who creates all creation,
He alone knows.
How should one praise him and express his greatness?
How can one know him?
He is supreme. His name is great.
Everything happens as he ordains.
Whoever credits himself as worthy,
Gains no honor before him.
