Eh Sachi Jee Dhar
A soothing shabad (devotional poem) by Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji (9th Sikh guru 1664). The core message of the 10 Sikh gurus is 'apna Mool pehchaan' (realize your Self).

Baru peet banae rach pach, rehat nahi din char.
A wall made of sand well decorated, lasts not four days.
Taisay hee eh, sukh maya ke, urjeo kaha gavar.
Same is the, path of maya (illusion), entangled lost in ignorance.
Ajhoo samajh kach, bigrio naahin, bhaj lay naam Muraar.
This day understand something, nothing is ruined yet, be devoted to the name Muraar (God, existence).
Kaho Nanak nij, mat saadhan ko, bhaakhio tohi pukaar.
