It is an English rendering of the hymns of the Sikh Gurus, which have been prescribed as daily prayer of the Sikhs. One can enjoy the flow of original from this translation. It can be useful and reliable translation especially for the young Sikh generation brought up in western countries.

In a translation from verse to prose, most probably the features get blurred and we are left with faceless shadows. A rendering from verse to verse is more likely to retain a semblance of the original features. Here the translator sincerely and his words follow from that flow.

Were all the winds to wield the pen, were ink to be Infinite, the whole space to serve as the paper, inspired minds amain were to provide mentation. Even then it would not be possible to describe the Sovran’s glory.

The Sikh Gurus and other Bhagats have said : HE is Ineffable, His Glory is Ineffable, His Naam Is Ineffable, His Will is Ineffable. His attributes are infinite. He beyond any appraisal. He is Incomprehensible.

In the Japuji Sahib, Guru Nanak permits to himself a small canvass to portray some Attributes of the true Sovran. If we ponder over it deeply it appears that Guru Nanak’s Moll Mantra is an acid test which every concept of the Godhood has to pass.. Mool Mantra forms the basis of the True Godhood. The attributes mentioned in it are the attributes of only the True Sovran.

Your translation reads very well.
