English Translation

After looking down in four directions, I looked within myself. There, I saw the True, Invisible Lord Creator. I was wandering in the wilderness, but now the Guru has shown me the Way. Hail to the True, True Guru, through whom we merge in the Truth. I have found the jewel within the home of my own self; the lamp within has been lit.

Having forgotten the Name, the world is roaming around like a wild demon. (Translation: S. S. Khalsa)
