This third Stanza, also called, Azure Salver, written by GuruNanak was sung originally when Nanak went into a Temple for Aarti(evening prayer) and everything was set, lights, incense, however Nanak noticed that it could not compare to Gods creativity manifested in nature.


The sky is the azure salver, the sun and moon are thy lamps,
the stars are thy scattered pearls, the sandal forests are thy incense
and the breeze is thy fan. These along with the flowers of vegetation
are laid as offerings at thy feet. What other worship can be compared
to natures own festival of lights while the divine music resounds within.
Thousand are thine eyes and yet thou hast no eyes
Thousand are thy forms and yet thou hast no form,
Thousand are thy lotus feet and yet thou hast no feet.
I’m enchanted with thy play, it is the light which lives in every heart
and thy light which illumines every soul.
It is only through the Guru’s teachings that this light can be shown
Whatever is pleasing to thee that is the true worship
And my soul yearns for the honey of thy lotus feet
Night and day I am a thirst for thee, I am like that bird who cries “peo, peo”
waiting to receive the drop of water, which is the nectar of your
kindness so that I may live in the ecstasy, so that you may live in the
ecstasy, so that we may live in the ecstasy of thy name.
