SGGS: This Month

This is what the Guru Granth Sahib says about this month:

ਅਸ੝ਨਿ ਪ੝ਰੇਮ ਉਮਾਹੜਾ ਕਿਉ ਮਿਲੀਝ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਮਨਿ ਤਨਿ ਪਿਆਸ ਦਰਸਨ ਘਣੀ ਕੋਈ ਆਣਿ ਮਿਲਾਵੈ ਮਾਇ ॥ ਸੰਤ ਸਹਾਈ ਪ੝ਰੇਮ ਕੇ ਹਉ ਤਿਨ ਕੈ ਲਾਗਾ ਪਾਇ ॥ ਵਿਣ੝ ਪ੝ਰਭ ਕਿਉ ਸ੝ਖ੝ ਪਾਈਝ ਦੂਜੀ ਨਾਹੀ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਜਿੰਨ੝”ੀ ਚਾਖਿਆ ਪ੝ਰੇਮ ਰਸ੝ ਸੇ ਤ੝ਰਿਪਤਿ ਰਹੇ ਆਘਾਇ ॥ ਆਪ੝ ਤਿਆਗਿ ਬਿਨਤੀ ਕਰਹਿ ਲੇਹ੝ ਪ੝ਰਭੂ ਲੜਿ ਲਾਇ ॥ ਜੋ ਹਰਿ ਕੰਤਿ ਮਿਲਾਈਆ ਸਿ ਵਿਛ੝ੜਿ ਕਤਹਿ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥ ਪ੝ਰਭ ਵਿਣ੝ ਦੂਜਾ ਕੋ ਨਹੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਸਰਣਾਇ ॥ ਅਸੂ ਸ੝ਖੀ ਵਸੰਦੀਆ ਜਿਨਾ ਮਇਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇ ॥8॥

asun praem oumaaharraa kio mileeai har jaae ॥ man than piaas dharasan ghanee koee aan milaavai maae ॥ sa(n)th sehaaee praem kae ho thin kai laagaa paae ॥ vin prabh kio sukh paaeeai dhoojee naahee jaae ॥ ji(n)nhee chaakhiaa praem ras sae thripath rehae aaghaae ॥ aap thiaag binathee karehi laehu prabhoo larr laae ॥ jo har ka(n)th milaaeeaa s vishhurr kathehi n jaae ॥ prabh vin dhoojaa ko nehee naanak har saranaae ॥ asoo sukhee vasa(n)dheeaa jinaa maeiaa har raae ॥8॥

In the month of Assu, my love for the Lord overwhelms me. How can I go and meet the Lord?
My mind and body are so thirsty for the Blessed Vision of His Darshan.
Won't someone please come and lead me to him, O my mother.
The Saints are the helpers of the Lord's lovers; I fall and touch their feet.
Without God, how can I find peace? There is nowhere else to go.
Those who have tasted the sublime essence of His Love, remain satisfied and fulfilled.
They renounce their selfishness and conceit, and they pray, ""God, please attach me to the hem of Your robe.""
Those whom the Husband Lord has united with Himself, shall not be separated from Him again.
Without God, there is no other at all. Nanak has entered the Sanctuary of the Lord.
In Assu, the Lord, the Sovereign King, has granted His Mercy, and they dwell in peace. ((8))
