The sutra
If my single tongue becomes a hundred thousand,
And this hundred thousand becomes twenty times more,
With each tongue would I sing a hundred thousand times
The only name of the master of the world.
These are the steps of the name of the lord.
By following them does one become twenty-one.
Hearing them speak of heaven's glory,
Even those who are like lowly worms become ambitious to emulate them.
Nanak says, he is attained only by his grace.
But the false claimants spread their boastful tales.
The power lies neither in speaking nor in silence;
The power lies neither in asking nor in giving;
The power lies neither in living nor in dying;
The power lies neither in the wealth of kingdoms nor the resolves of the mind;
The power lies neither in remembrance nor in knowledge of the divine;
The power lies neither in the world nor in the devices to be rid of samsara.
The real power lies in his hands -- who creates and keeps on watching.
Nanak says, no one is high and no one is low before him.
