ਧਨਾਸਰੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ ਜਿਹ ਕਰਣੀ ਹੋਵਹਿ ਸਰਮਿੰਦਾ ਇਹਾ ਕਮਾਨੀ ਰੀਤਿ ॥ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਸਾਕਤ ਕੀ ਪੂਜਾ ਐਸੀ ਦਿ੍ੜੀ ਬਿਪਰੀਤਿ ॥੧॥ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹ ਭੂਲੋ ਅਵਰੈ ਹੀਤ ॥ ਹਰਿਚੰਦਉਰੀ ਬਨ ਹਰ ਪਾਤ ਰੇ ਇਹੈ ਤੁਹਾਰੋ ਬੀਤ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ ਚੰਦਨ ਲੇਪ ਹੋਤ ਦੇਹ ਕਉ ਸੁਖੁ ਗਰਧਭ ਭਸਮ ਸੰਗੀਤਿ ॥ ਅੰਮਿ੍ਤ ਸੰਗਿ ਨਾਹਿ ਰੁਚ ਆਵਤ ਬਿਖੈ ਠਗਉਰੀ ਪੀਤਿ ॥੨॥ ਉਤਮ ਸੰਤ ਭਲੇ ਸੰਜੋਗੀ ਇਸੁ ਜੁਗ ਮਹਿ ਪਵਿਤ ਪੁਨੀਤ ॥ ਜਾਤ ਅਕਾਰਥ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਦਾਰਥ ਕਾਚ ਬਾਦਰੈ ਜੀਤ ॥੩॥ ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਕੇ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਦੁਖ ਭਾਗੇ ਗੁਰਿ ਗਿਆਨ ਅੰਜਨੁ ਨੇਤ੍ ਦੀਤ ॥ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਿ ਇਨ ਦੁਖ ਤੇ ਨਿਕਸਿਓ ਨਾਨਕ ਏਕ ਪਰੀਤ ॥੪॥੯॥
English Translation:
DHANAASAREE, FIFTH MEHL: You have made it your habit to practice those deeds which will bring you shame. You slander the Saints, and you worship the faithless cynics; such are the corrupt ways you have adopted. 1 Deluded by your emotional attachment to Maya, you love other things, like the enchanted city of Hari-chandauree, or the green leaves of the forest - such is your way of life. 1 Pause Its body may be anointed with sandalwood oil, but the donkey still loves to roll in the mud. He is not fond of the Ambrosial Nectar; instead, he loves the poisonous drug of corruption. 2 The Saints are noble and sublime; they are blessed with good fortune. They alone are pure and holy in this world. The jewel of this human life is passing away uselessly, lost in exchange for mere glass. 3 The sins and sorrows of uncounted incarnations run away, when the Guru applies the healing ointment of spiritual wisdom to the eyes. In the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, I have escaped from these troubles; Nanak loves the One Lord. 4 9

This hukum would perfect next to my last post about Indians topping Swiss Account holders. Guru Arjan Sahib says it so beautifully that it is better to say it in Punjabi and this is my understanding of the first few lines in Punjabi "eh maarhey kamaan di reet bana laee hai jis naal sharminda hona pavay. Santaan di ninda ho rahi hai atay sakat, jihray rab nu nahin man day, una di puja ho rahi hai. Aisee galat reet chal rahi hai. Maya day moh vich sab kuch bhul gya hai. Harchandori ban nu atay haryali nu moh lagaun da rivaaj chal riha hai. (1) Rahao. Gadhay nay bhaanvey chandan da lape lagaya hovay phir vee mitti vich litda hai. Amrit da sang nahin aunda atay thagi naal preet lagayee hoi hai. (2) Sant hee utam atay bhalay hun is jug vich atay sundar atay pavittar hun. Eh janam padarthan de vich beetay ja riha hai, kucch badlaun day wich. (3) Janam janam day dukh bhaj janday hun jadon Guru gyan da unjan (surma) ankhan vich paa davay. Sadh sagat naal eh dukh bhaj gayay hun atay Nanak nu Ik naal preet ho gayi hai(4) {9}
