Just as the light of the sun's rays spread out,
This is the shabad Charhdi Kala Jatha sang at Talkatora Gardens. As the recording is not very clear I thought it will help to make it clear if you know what they are singing

ਰਾਗੁ ਬਸੰਤੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ਘਰੁ ੧ ਇਕ ਤੁਕੇ
ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ਜਿਉ ਪਸਰੀ ਸੂਰਜ ਕਿਰਣਿ ਜੋਤਿ ॥

Just as the light of the sun's rays spread out,

ਤਿਉ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਰਮਈਆ ਓਤਿ ਪੋਤਿ ॥੧॥

the Lord permeates each and every heart, through and through. ||1||

ਏਕੋ ਹਰਿ ਰਵਿਆ ਸ੍ਰਬ ਥਾਇ ॥

The One Lord is permeating and pervading all places.

ਗੁਰ ਸਬਦੀ ਮਿਲੀਐ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, we merge with Him, O my mother. ||1||Pause||

ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਅੰਤਰਿ ਏਕੋ ਹਰਿ ਸੋਇ ॥

The One Lord is deep within each and every heart.

ਗੁਰਿ ਮਿਲਿਐ ਇਕੁ ਪ੍ਰਗਟੁ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥

Meeting with the Guru, the One Lord becomes manifest, radiating forth. ||2||

ਏਕੋ ਏਕੁ ਰਹਿਆ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ॥

The One and Only Lord is present and prevailing everywhere.

ਸਾਕਤ ਨਰ ਲੋਭੀ ਜਾਣਹਿ ਦੂਰਿ ॥੩॥

The greedy, faithless cynic thinks that God is far away. ||3||

ਏਕੋ ਏਕੁ ਵਰਤੈ ਹਰਿ ਲੋਇ ॥

The One and Only Lord permeates and pervades the world.

ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਏਕ ਕਰੇ ਸੁ ਹੋਇ ॥੪॥੧॥

O Nanak, whatever the One Lord does comes to pass. ||4||1||
