Oha Prem Piri lyrics:
„Oha parem piri.
Kanik maṇik gaj moṯī▫an lalan nah nah nahi.
Raj na bhag na hukam na saḏan.
Kichh kichh na chahi.
Charnan sarnan santan bandan.
Sukho sukh pahi.
Nanak tapat hari.
Mile parem piri.”
Oha Prem Piri translation in English:
„I seek the Love of my Beloved.
Gold, jewels, giant pearls and rubies – I have no need for them.
Imperial power, fortunes, royal command and mansions
– I have no desire for these.
The Sanctuary of the Lord’s Feet, and dedication to the Saints
these bring me peace and pleasure.
O Nanak, my burning fire has been put out,
Obtaining the Love of the Beloved.”
This gurbani is about love. According to Sikhism, Gurbani is the panacea for all human ills. Gurbani refers to the text of Sikhism’s holy scripture or the word of Guru Granth Sahib. The compositions of Gurbani are poetic.
