ਜੋ ਸਤਿਗ੝ਰ ਸਰਣਿ ਸੰਗਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਆਝ ਧ੝ਰਿਗ੝ ਜੀਵੇ ਧ੝ਰਿਗ੝ ਜੀਵਾਸਿ ॥੩॥

Jo saṯgur saraṇ sangaṯ nahī ĝ­ė ḝẖarig jīvė ḝẖarig jīvĝs. ॥3॥
Those who have not sought the Sanctuary of the True Guru and the Sangat,
the Holy Congregation; cursed are their lives, and cursed are their hopes of life. ॥3॥

ਸਤਿਗ੝ਰ੝ ਭੇਟੇ ਸੋ ਸ੝ਖ੝ ਪਾਝ ॥ (One who meets the True Guru finds peace.)

Sat + Guru = Who have Knowledge of Truth, Who tells, What is real Dharam, What are you doing and for what you are here for. Satguru = Person, Satguru = Chitt and Satguru = Parameshwar. But to get eternal peace you have to agree and follow with his wordings (ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮ੝ ਮੰਨਿ ਵਸਾਝ ॥)
