ਕਰਤ ਕੇਲ ਬਿਖੈ ਮੇਲ ਚੰਦ੍ਰ ਸੂਰ ਮੋਹੇ ॥
The Participants

Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

The team which got second prize sang in Raag Sarang. The performance was very nice but there was something very disappointing about this team. I will refrain from mentioning it here. I am sure many of will not miss it. But I only pray to Guru for his blessings on every body.

Listen to the recording

ਕਰਤ ਕੇਲ ਬਿਖੈ ਮੇਲ ਚੰਦ੍ਰ ਸੂਰ ਮੋਹੇ ॥ (੧੨੩੧-੩, ਸਾਰੰਗ, ਮ:੫)

करत केल बिखै मेल चंद्र सूर मोहे ॥
karat kayl bikhai mayl chandar soor mohay.
Acting and play-acting, the mortal sinks into corruption. Even the moon and the sun are enticed and bewitched.
उपजता बिकार दुंदर नउपरी झुनंतकार सुंदर अनिग भाउ करत फिरत बिनु गोपाल धोहे ॥ रहाउ ॥ upjataa bikaar dundar na-uparee jhunantkaar sundar anig bhaa-o karat firat bin gopaal Dhohay. rahaa-o.
The disturbing noise of corruption wells up, in the tinkling ankle bells of Maya the beautiful. With her beguiling gestures of love, she seduces everyone except the Lord. Pause
तीनि भउने लपटाइ रही काच करमि न जात सही उनमत अंध धंध रचित जैसे महा सागर होहे ॥१॥ teen bha-unay laptaa-ay rahee kaach karam na jaat sahee unmat anDh DhanDh rachit jaisay mahaa saagar hohay. 1
Maya clings to the three worlds; those who are stuck in wrong actions cannot escape her. Drunk and engrossed in blind worldly affairs, they are tossed about on the mighty ocean. 1
उधरे हरि संत दास काटि दीनी जम की फास पतित पावन नामु जा को सिमरि नानक ओहे ॥२॥ uDhray har sant daas kaat deenee jam kee faas patit paavan naam jaa ko simar naanak ohay. 2 The Saint, the slave of the Lord is saved; the noose of the Messenger of Death is snapped. The Naam, the Name of the Lord, is the Purifier of sinners; O Nanak, remember Him in meditation.
