Aanand Mangal Gaawo Moree Sajanee, Bhaye Prabhaat Beet Gayee Rajanee...

Udar Nirantar Phulee Phulawaaree, Tahaan More Manso Kare Rakhawaaree...
--- In the heart the flowers blossom wherein the Mind remains steady.

Varshai Naam Amee Phal Laage, Peevenge Koee Sant Swabhaage...
--- Therein the showers of 'Naam' rain upon the fruit of nectar; only Saints are destined to indulge in its wonder.

Kahat Kabir Goonge Kee Sainaa, Sadguru Shabd Paarakh Kar Nainaa...
--- Kabir Saheb says, the devotee becomes speechless who has experienced the Shabd of the Sadguru with their own eyes.

Aanaa Kabeerpanth Men Khaalaa Kaa Ghar Nahin;
Aate Hain Sur Nar Jinhen Duniyaa Kaa Daaraa Nahin.(Chorus)

Choree Au Jhooth Tyaag Kar, Sache Sadd Rahen;
Daalen Padaaee Naaree Padaa, Haragij Nazaaraa Nahin

Upadesh To Karate Hain, Sab Hi Paap Na Karanaa;
Sanate Hain Apane Kaanaa, Aap Khudaa Magar Nahin

Baalak Jo Aayankar, Kahai Vaazib Baataa;
Usaki Bhi Manaane Man Unako Uzar Nahin

Rutubaa Au Maal Dhan Paai, Jo Karataa Hai Kuchh Garoora;
Usakaa To Is Dharam Men, Jaraa Bharaa Gujara Nahin

Kahate Hain Dharamadaas, Saaph Saaph Yeh Sabase;
Mukti Kaa Aur Thaur, Kaheen Sar Basar Nahin

Kaah Kahoon Kachhu Varnin Na Jaay, Teen Lok Paasang Men Jaay…

Dharmadaas Aamin Samujhaay, Bhakti Karon Tum Surati Lagaay…

Aao Gurudev Darshan Deejo, Tumhi Ho Jagat Ke Daataa.(Chorus)

--- Oh seeker, I am your beloved protector, so always be joyful.
Your life in this world is dependent on your actions, so don’t worry. 

Tum Nahin Teraa, Koi Nahin Teraa, Kyaa Kare Mera;
Tera Hai So Tere Paase, Aur Sabe Hai Anera…
--- Nothing is yours, why are you crying over possessions, relationships.
Whatever is yours is already within you, everything else is not yours.

Baapu Vinaasee Tu Avinaasee, Ab Hai Kintu Vilaasee;
Baapu Sang Jab Door Nikaasi, Tab Tum Siv Kaa Vaasee…
--- Your body is destructible, you are not; yet you are absorbed in worldly pleasures.
When you detach yourself from your body, then you reach the realm of real joy. 

Raag Nireetaa Doye Khabeetaa, Ye Tum Dukh Kaa Keeta;
Jab Tum Unko Door Kareetaa, Tab Tum Jag Kaa Isaa…
--- Desires and obsession are the two falsities; they are your sources of suffering.
When you rid yourself of these obsessions, then you are at the top of the world.  

Par Ki Aasaa Sadaa Niraasaa Yeh Hai Jag Jan Pasha;
Te Kaatan Ko Karo Abhiyaasaa, Laho Sadaa Sukh Vaasaa…
--- This world is full of illusion, don’t keep false hopes.
Practice detachment, then only you will always enjoy peaceful life.

Ab Ham Aveegat Se Chali Aaee, Mero Bhed Maram Nahin Paaee.(Chorus)
--- I have come from the place of no Return; none know of this secret of mine.

Nahin Ham Jaane Garbh Baseraa, Baalak Hoy Dikhaawe Ho;
Kaashee Shahar Jangal Bich Deraa, Tahaa Julaah Paaye Ho...
--- I know not of dwelling in the womb, I have manifested in the form of a child;
Amidst the jungles surrounding the city of Kashi wherein the Julaah (weaver) found me.

Hate Videh Deh Dhaari Aae, Kayan Kabeer Kahaaye Ho;
Yugan Yugan Ke Bichhude Hansaa, Raamaanand Samujhaaye Ho...
--- Being body-less I have come in the form of a body named 'Kabir;'
Being separated for ages from the Hansaa (Souls), the sage Ramanand recognized this plight.

Agle Janam Ham Kaul Kiyaa Thaa, Tab Neeru Griha Aae Ho;
Saat Din Ki Bachiyaa Mangaaye, Taako Doodh Duhaaye Ho...
--- Fulfilling my promises from my last birth, I have come to the house of Neeru
And drunk the milk of a seven day calf.

Nahin Mere Hadh Chamaa Nahin Lohu, Ham Satnaam Upaasee Ho;
Taaran Taranaa Abhai Pad Daataa, Kahen Kabeer Avinaashee Ho...
--- I do not consist of blood and organs, I derive from 'Satyanaam'
Kabir Saheb, the Immortal, says: He who treads on the path to Liberation becomes fearless.

Ab To Kripaa Sindhu Dukh Meto, Yam Se Kaagad Cheer…
---Going through the three physical agonies (Daivic – of the elements, Bhautic – of others and Adhyaatmic - Bodily) and the 84 Laakhs of lifeforms, the Jeeva (lifeform/Soul) become impatient.
Oh Ocean of Compassion, smite my sorrows and free me from my arrangement with Death.

Doobat Aaye Ubaaro Prabhujee, Kheee Lagaao Teer…
--- My boat is caught in this Worldly Ocean in the midst of a storm.

--- Some pray to Gauri and Shankar and other to Seeta and Raghubir.
For me, You are the only one who is worthy. Why not relieve me of this pain?

--- Dharmadas pleas with folded hands: Master, You are Incomprehensible;
I am very impoverished , grant me Your forgiveness Oh Liberator.

Agar Koee Satsang Men Aataa Rahegaa;
To Marne Kaa Bhay Dil Se Jaataa Rahegaa.(Chorus)
--- If someone regularly attends Satsangs, 
Then their fear of death will no longer burden their heart.

Niyam Poorvak Saadhoo Sangati Me Aakar;
Chara Dhooli Sir Par Charhaataa Rahegaa…
--- One who consistently frequents the company of Saints and Sages
And applies the dust of their feet to their head;

Jo Shradhaa Sahit Prem Bhakti Se Nishdin;
Sewaa Santo Ke Hardam Kamaataa Rahegaa…
---  Who, in reverance, true love and devotion day and night
Continues to prosper from the service of the Saints.

Dhoolegaa Sabhi Mail Man Kaa Ye Saaraa;
Jo Satsang Me Gotaa Lagaataa Rahegaa…
--- The dirt and impurities will be washed from their Mind
Whoever dives into the ‘pool’ of Satsang.

Dikhegee Vah Jyoti Kisee Na Kisi Din;
Jo Ahankaar Man Se Hataataa Rahegaa…
--- They will eventually see the Eternal Light,
Whoever dispels the Ego from their Mind.

Asar Na Karegee Vishai Belee Usko;

On Whoever continuously practices Spirituality.

Nahin Paas Aayegaa Yamdoot Uske;
Jo Kabeer Kabeer Gaataa Rahegaa…

Those who repeatedly chant the name of Kabir.

Kahe Sant Uskee To Bigaree Banegee;
Jo Santo Kee Aagyaa Bajaataa Rahegaa…
--- The Saints say: They will benefit,
Those who carry out the instructions of Saints.

(Mangal)

Akhand Saheb Ke Naam Aur Sab Khand Hai;
Khandit Meru Sumeru Khand Brahmand Hai…
--- The Name of the Lord is one, All else is divided.
Even the mighty mountains, Meru, Sumeru, and Brahmand are fragmented.

Thir Naa Rahe Dhan Dhaam So Jeevan Dwand Hai;
Lakh Chauraasee Jeev Pade Yam Phand Hai…
--- Wealth and other such riches are not durable life will be afflicted with conflicts. 
The 8.4 millions of life-forms all lie in the traps of Death.

Chanchal Man Thir Hoi Tabe Bhal Rang Hai;
Ulat Nikat Bhar Peev To Amrit Gang Hai…
--- By keeping the unsteady Mind stable, one is Graced.
One who completely turns the Mind around will drink from the river of Nectar.

Jin Ko Saaheb So Het Soee Nirabandh Hai;
We Saadhun Ke Sang Men Sadaa Aanand Hai…
--- The Soul that becomes attached to the Name of Saheb becomes detached from all else.
True Bliss is found in the company of Saints and Sages.

Dayaa Bhaav Chit Raakh So Bhakti Ke Ang Hai;
Kahai Kabeer Chit Chetahu Jagat Patang Hai…
--- By establishing Mercy and Love in the Heart, one treads on the path of Devotion.
Kabir says: Constantly remain mindful, this world is like a Kite.

Bere Charhe So Agadhar Doobe, Niraadhaar Vaipaaram Avadhu…

Ubat Chale So Nagaree Pahunche, Baat Chale Te Loote Avadhu…
--- He who takes the winding and rough road reached safely. He who takes the straight even road loses everything. 

Ek Jevri Sab Laptaane, Ke Baandhe Ke Chhoote Avadhu…
--- Everyone is entangled with the same rope. Who gets caught and who gets released.

Mandir Baithe Chahundis Bheege, Baahar Rahe Te Sukhe Avadhu…

Sar Maare Te Sadaa Sukhaare, An Maare Te Dukhaa Avadhu...
--- He who is touched by the arrow is always healthy. He who does not get struck by the arrow suffers.

Bin Nainan Ke Sab Jag Dekhe, Lochan Aanchte Andhaa Avadhu…
--- Without eyes he can see the whole world.  He who has eyes cannot see anything. 

Kahen Kabeer, Kachhu Samajh Pari Hai, Yeh Jag Dekhe Andhaa Avadhu…
--- Kabir says, Could you solve this riddle? O Ignorant One, the whole world is blind!

Aawat Jaawat Koi Nahin Dekha, Yehi Baaraa Achambaa…
--- This house has Nine Doors (orifices) and is surrounded by a fence;
Non have seen those who enter and exit the house, this is a wondrous mystery.

Panch Tattwa Kee Bheet Banaaee, Teen Gunan Ka Gaaraa;
Rom Ki Ona Chaal Chalaawe, Chet Na Karne Haaraa…
--- With bricks made of Five Elements and cement of the Three Qualities,
A wall is erected, non can even think of penetrating its might.

Man Kahataa Hain Haathee Ghoda, Oonch Kee Palakee Honaa;
Saheb Ji Ke Dil Me Hain, Nange Paire Se Chalanaa…
--- The Mind instructs to acquire Elephants and Horses and travel in a high palanquin extravagantly;
Saheb says, from His heart: walk barefoot humbly.

Panch Pachees Se Patra Baanche, Manwa Thaal Bajaawe;
Surati Nirati Kee Mridang Bajaawe, Raag Chattees Gawe…
--- The Mind plays the Thaali (instrumental plate) with a branch of 25 leaves (senses);
The Mridang (drum) of Meditation is played and the 36 melodies (attributes) are sung.

Man Kahataa Hain Daulat Karnaa, Oonch Mahal Par Sonaa;
Saheb Ji Ke Dil Men Hain, Satyanaam Tu Japanaa…
--- The Mind instructs to acquire wealth and riches and sleep in a high castle;
Saheb says, from His heart: chant the Name of Satyanam.

Man Kahata Hain Jooroo Ladka, Bahut Rojh Me Jeenae;
Saheb Ji Ke Man Men Hain, Ek Din Mitti Milnaa…
--- The Mind instructs to live with wife, son etc. in a high manner;
Saheb thinks to Himself: one day, all will be lost (decay).

Aparampaar Badaa Hi Aaro, Satguru Bhed Bataawe;
Kahen Kabeer Suno Bhai Saadho, Jin Khojaa Tin Paayaa…
--- How do I remain in good health, reveal this knowledge to me, Oh Sadguru;
Kabir Saheb says, you are destined to lose what you have acquired (the Body).

Beet Gaye Din Bhajan Binaa Re.(Chorus)
--- Your days have been wasted without the praising of the Lord (i.e. singing of Bhajans).

Baal Awasthaa Khel Gawaayo, Jab Jawaanee Tab Maan Ghanaa Re…
--- In childhood, you played games and sung songs; in adolescence, your mind wandered off.

Laahe Kaaran Mool Gawaayo, Ajahu Na Gaee Man Kee Trishanaa Re…
--- In fulfilling the endless desires of the mind, you have sacrificed; however, the mind still remains thirsty.

Dolat Dige Na Bolat Beesar, Jab Updesh Diraawe;

--- His teachings are not bound by formalities.
He does not teach austerities; He only shows the simple and easy path to Union
.

Karam Kare Nishkaram Rahe Jo, Aisi Jugat Lakhaawe;
Sadaa Vilaas Traas Nahin Man Men, Bhog Men Jog Jagaawe…
--- He teaches to be still in the midst of your activities.
Having no fear in the mind, but being in blissful in union while enjoying the world.

Dharti Tyaagi Akaash Hoon Tyaagi, Adharm Marayaa Achaave;
Sunya Shikhar Ke Saar Silaa Par, Aasan Achal Jamaave…
--- As the Eternal Being is everywhere (i.e. Earth, Sky etc.), He teaches not to restrict Him to one specific place.
So, the seeker establishes himself firmly on the point above the Void.

Bheetar Rahaa So Baahar Dekhe, Doojaa Drishti Naa Aawe;
Kahat Kabeer Basaa Hain Hansaa, Aawaagawan Mitaaye…
--- The Eternal Being is as within as it is outside; I can see Him only everywhere.
Kabir says: ‘When the soul is realized, it is freed from the cycle of Birth and Rebirth.

--- Oh my Lord, after losing everything, my only hope is to be saved as your devotee.

Kaisa Bhi Ho Tairanhaaraa, Jab Tak Liyaa Na Charan Sahaaraa;
Ho Na Sakaa Bhavpaar…
--- Oh my Lord, however skillful a swimmer can be, he will never be able to cross the worldly ocean without your support. 

He Prabhu Tum Ho Vividh Roopon Se, Hamen Bachaate Bhav Koopon Se;
Aise Param Oodaar…
--- Oh lord, You manifest in different ways, Save me from the deep “well” of life. Oh my Lord You are the supreme saviour. 

Hum Aaye Hai Sharan Tumhaaree, Karo Prabhu Ab Mukti Hamaaree;
Sun Lo Pathik Pukaar…
--- I have come to you for shelter, Liberate me from the ocean of life. Oh my Lord, please listen to this worldly traveller's plea.

Until then the aspirant does not get lasting happiness.

Cannot have the vision of the Lord even in dreams.

--- Of what use is the reading of the Vedas if nothing is learned from them?
Without knowledge of the Soul no one can be called wise.

Paap Karamon Se Sadaa Rahataa Hain, Jis Kaa Mann Maleen;
Usake Sad Upadesh Yah, Haragij Hridai Bhaataa Naheen.
--- Because of the Mind being soiled with perpetual sins,
People do not ever appreciate the True Knowledge.

Without the Satguru no one receives Salvation.

Jin Sadguru Ko Pahichaanaa Naheen
Tinako Teen Lok Thikaanaa Naheen.(Chorus)
--- Whoever has not recognised the Satguru (Perfect Master)
Has no resting place in the Three Worlds (Physical, Astral and Spiritual).

So Nar Khar Kookar Samm Jaano, Jehi Ghat Gyaan Samaanaa Naheen
--- Like stray-dogs, such people wander from place to place with minds devoid of knowledge.

Din Bharme Jo Phir Ghar Aawe, Taako To Kahat Bhulaanaa Naheen
--- Those who return to the Path never forget the words of the Satguru.

Apane Bhakt Ko Jo Naheen Taare, Aisaa Woh Saaheb Diwaanaa Naheen
--- Those who do not lead their disciples to Salvation are not True Lovers.

Kahai Kabeer Satya Hai Wah Pad, Jahaan Phir Jaanaa Au Aanaa Naheen
--- Kabir says: Only that Destination is Perfect where there is going and returning.

As an adult you were carried away by your desires.

When on the earth, you flow freely like the water.
Everyone tells you “This is how it should be” and the
Lord Supreme, quietly witnesses all.

Amrit Ras Chod Vishay Ras Chaakaa, Ulti Phaans Phasaanee…
--- You arrived from there to a specific address in this world,
To quench your desire and merge with the Lord.
But you leave the nectar and drinck the poison instead;
By doing so you go the reverse way, entangle in the worldly traps,
Which you mistakenly believe to do the eternal happiness

Oham Soham Baajaa Baaje, Trikuti Sun Samaanee;
Ingla Pingla Sushman Saadho, Sun Dhwajaa Pheraaee

At this state you are totally tuned in to the Lords music.

Eternal Abode of the Lord. Kabir Saheb says:
O seeker! This is the true experience of the limitless,
The realization of God, otherwise unattainable

Milaa Na Joi Adhaar, Jo Leu Hamen Ubaar, Guruwar Swami…
--- I am greatly disturbed by the suffering in this world, and I have now come to your refuge.
I had not found help from anyone to liberate me, O Master, my Guru.

Vanchak Jan Ke Phanda Bhaaree, Jismen Bhoole Jeev Anaaree.
Metahu Teenu Taap, Lakhaake Aap, Satyagun Dhaamee…
--- The deceivers of the world lay down horrible traps, and the innocent lives become entangled in them.
You can remove the three types of sufferings by giving me a glimpse of yourself, O Guru, the Abode of Eternal Qualities! 

Tum Bandichod Kahaate Ho, Jeewan Ke Phand Chhudaate Ho.
Ab Meree Karo Neehaar, Shabd Taksaar, Bataao Swamee…
--- You are hailed as the Liberator from Bondage, and you remove the bondage of people.
Now please take care of me, and give me the essence of the Shabda, O my Master! 

Kaayaa Beer Kabeer Guruwar, Ram Swaroop Sadaa Pad Kinkar.
Guru Charan Sukhaare, Sharan Tumhaare, Guruwar Charan Namaamee…
--- You are full of strength, O Guru Kabir! And Ramaswaroop is always your servant.
Your feet give me bliss, and I have come to your refuge. I offer salutations at your feet, O Satguru!

Maatee Kaa Khilaunaa Matee Me Mil Jaayegaa
Maan Meraa Kahanaa Nahin To Pachataayegaa.(Chorus)

Sundar Roop Dekh Kar Bhoolaa, Dhan Yoban Ke Mat Men Phoolaa.
Ek Din Hansaa Akelaa Ud Jaayegaa…

Patee Patnee Pitaa Aru Maataa, Sakhaa Sumitra Sahodar Bharaataa.
Pal Bhar Men Naataa Sabhee Se Chhut Jayegaa…

Heeraa Jawaahir Kee Maalaa Dulaaree, Makhamal Ke Gadhi Aurr Resham Kee Saaree;
Hit Sut But Sab Yehee Chhut Jaayegaa…

Heeraa Aiso Janam Gawaaya Diyo Soi, Phir Pachataayegaa Diwaanaa Mann Roi.
Kahe Kabeer Suno Bhaaee Saadho, Aisaa Janam Nahin Phir Paayegaa…

Chalti Chakki Dekh Ke, Diya Kabeera Roy;
Do Paathan Ke Beech Men, Saabut Bachaa Na Koy…

Dourbal Ko Na Sataaiye, Jaaki Moti Hayi;
Bina Jeev Ki Swaas Se, Loha Bharam Ho Jaaye.
Dukh Men Sumiran Sab Kare, Sukh Men Kare Na Koyi;
Jo Sukh Men Sumiran Kare, Dukh Kahe Ko Hoyi…

PattTootaa Daal Se, Le Gayi Pawan Udaayi;
Ab Ke Bichure Na Mile, Door Parenge Jaayi.
Haar Jale Jyon Laakhdi, Kesh Jale Jyon Ghaas;
Sab Jag Jaltaa Dekh Ke, Bhaye Kabeer Udaas…

Kabeer Aap Thagaaiye, Aur Na Thagiye Koyi;
Aap Thage Sukh Oopje, Aur Thage Dukh Hoyi.
Saadhu Aavat Dekhi Ke, Charanan Lagoon Dhaayi;
Na Jane Kis Roop Men, Naaraayan Mil Jaayi…

--- Everyone takes care of the Body, but nobody cares about the Mind.
He who takes control of the Mind, attains the highest level of super-consciousness.
Ham To Jogi Maanhi Ke, Tan Ke Hain Te Aur;

Just by subduing the Mind, the whole state of myself changes.

Man Naa Rangaaye Jogi, Kapda Rangaaye,
Man Naa Phiraaye Jogi, Man Kaa Phiraaye.(Chorus)
--- O Monk! You are pre-occupied in colouring your clothes, How about your mind?
You are absorbed in counting the deads, but not concentrating the mind.

Aasan Maar Guphaa Men Baithe, Manwa Chahun Dish Dhaaye;
Bhavtaarak Ghat Bich Biraaje, Khojan Tirath Jaaye…
--- You sit in meditation in the cave, but your mind is wandering everywhere!
You are expecting to reap the fruits of pilgrimage by staying in the middle of a whirlpool.

Pothee Baanche Yagya Karaave, Bhagati Kahun Nahin Paaye;
Man Ka Man Kaa Phere Naahin, Tulasi Maalaa Phiraaye Phiraaye…
---  You recite from the holybooks, perform rites/rituals, but did not practice devotion.
You are counting the beads, but you do not keep your mind under control.

Jogi Hoke Jaagaa Nahin, Chauraasi Bharmaaye;
Jog Jugat Saheb Kabeer, Alakh Niranjan Paaye…
---  Even you became monk, you were not awakened, you remained trapped in the world.
By surrendering yourself to the Sadguru, you will attain the Lord.

Main Kehtaa Suljhaawan Haari, Tu Rahiyo Uljhaayi Re…
--- I speak of the Truth, the Real experience. Whilst you get confused with books.
I want to unlock the door for you.  Whilst you are content in the vicissitudes of the world.

Main Kehtaa Hoon Jaagat Rahiyo, Tu To Rahaa Hai Soyi Re;
Main Kehtaa Nirmohi Rahiyo, Tu To Jaataa Mohi Re…
---  I advise you to be always awake. But you are enjoying yourself in deep slumber.
I advise you to disillusion yourself. But you prefer to remain entangled in the world’s illusion.

Satguru Dharaa Nirmal Baahe, Taame Tan Ko Dhoyi Re;
Kahat Kabeer Suno Bhai Saadho, Tab Hi Vaisa Hoyi Re…
---  The Satguru’s prescribed teachings purifies your inner self. But you are focusing on the outer aspects, ignoring the inner self.  Kabir Saheb says: Listen O Seeker! Only when you follow the prescriptions of the Satguru will you unite with the Supreme.

Pardesiyaa Do Din Ka Musaafir, Prabhu Gun Gaalo Mere Musaafir.(Chorus)
--- O traveler, you are here for a couple of days only, so sing the praises of the Lord!

Ek Din Hasnaa Do Din Rona, Manus Tan Paayo Sab Bhoolaa;
Prabhu Bhajan Men Chawkas Rahanaa, Prabhu Gun Galo Mere Musaafir…
--- You have more sufferings than joys, why do you forget this?
Get absorbed in the Bhajans. Sing the praises of the Lord!

Aayaa Hain So Jageyaa Bande, Raja Rahe Rank Bhikaaree;
Heeraa Tan Maati Ban Jawe, Prabhu Gun Galo Mere Musaafir…
--- Whoever comes in this world will have to go.
This beautiful body will have to go back to the earth. Sing the praises of the Lord!

Bina Satsang Kumati Nahin Chhoote, Bina Guru Gyaan Rahi Nahin Soojhe;
Cheto Ri Manwa Koi Nahin Saathi, Prabhu Gun Galo Mere Musaafir…
--- You will not get spiritual knowledge unless you keep company of saintly people.
Wake up now, none of your “good” company will save you. Sing the praises of the Lord!

Kaayaa Pinjara Sundar Mandir, Tan Hain Nagari Man Hain Mandir;
Saheb Hai Jiske Man Andar, Prabhu Gun Galo Mere Musaafir…
--- Your body is the cage imprisoning your gem like soul.
He who has been enlightened will understand. Sing the praises of the Lord!

Kuchh Upkar Jagat Men Karlo, Kuchh Agle Janamo Ko Dharlo;
Kahat Kabeer Suno Bhai Mere Saaheb, Prabhu Gun Galo Mere Musaafir…
--- Be grateful and perform good deeds whilst you have human birth.
Kabir Saheb says (addressing to the soul): Sing the praises of the Lord!

Peele Pyaalaa Ho Matt Waalaa, Pyalaa Naam Amee Ras Kaa Re.(Chorus)

Paap Punya Bhugatan Ko Aayaa, Kown Teraa Au Too Kis Kaa Re;

Piyaa Milan Ki Chali Ek Naari, Pakad Makra Taar Ki Jaari.(Chorus)

Meru Marg Ki Durgam Ghaati, Ko Paar Karti Chali Jaati…

Mukh Men Naam, Nain Men Murti, Agam Shobhaa Dekh Ti Jaati…

Baandh Pati Piyaa Ki Kivaari, Guru Kunji Se Kholi Naari…

Lakh Shobha Be Shudh Par Jaati, Aankhen Aplak Si Rahi Jaati…

Mukh Se To Kuchh Kahi Na Jaati, Magar Antar Piyaa Ke Gun Gaati…

Dekh Bhagwaan Hirambar Dhaari, Piye Ke Pyaari Bhayi Babaari…

Raam Bhajaa So Jeetaa Jag Men.(Chorus)
--- He who prays the Lord is the one who always wins.

Haath Sumarni Pet Katarni, Parhat Bhaagwat Geetaa;
Hridayaa Shuddh Kiyaa Nahin Bawre, Kahat Sunat Din Beetaa…
--- Some count the rosary beads, read the sacred books but are crooks;
They spend all their time saying or listening to sermons but they have not purified their words.

Aan Dev Ki Pooja Keenhi, Guru Se Rahaa Ateetaa;
Dhan Yoban Sab Yehi Rahegaa, Ant Samay Chale Reetaa…
--- Some just worship blindly, but stay away from the true Satguru (God);
Youth and wealth will remain here only, they will ultimately go empty handed.

Baawariyaa Ne Baawar Daari, Moh Jaal Sab Keetaa;
Kahain Kabeer Kaal Dhari Khaye Hai, Jaise Mrig Ko Cheetaa…
--- Fraudsters are everywhere with traps, so it is easy to get fooled and trapped by them.
Kabir Saheb says: If you let yourself be fooled, Kaal will devour you, just as the cheetah devours the deer.

Nish Din Tu Aisaa Bol Main Hoon, Oham Oham Oham

Kahade Sab Ko Tattva Vichaar, Tumho Joham Joham Joham;
Sab Men Taaraa Atmaa Prakaash, Bolo Poham Poham Poham

Satsang Ki Gangaa Baheti Hai, Gurudev Aapki Charanon Men.
Phal Miltaa Hai Sab Teerat Kaa, Gurudev Aap Ki Charanon Mein.(Chorus)
---
O Gurudev! The wisdom flowing from you is just like the holy water of the Ganges.
Coming to your feet, I get all the benefits of countless pilgrimages.

Men Janam Janam Bharmaayaa Hoon, Ab Sharan Aapki Aayaa Hoon;
Is Bhoole Bhatke Jeevan Kaa, Kalyaan Aapke Charanon Men
--- I was lost in the cycle of so many births, and now I have come to your shelter.
Allow this lost soul to have a space at your feet.

Dukhiyon Kaa Dukh Mitaate Ho, De Divya Drishti Parkhaate Ho;
Sab Aawaagaman Mitate Ho, Hai Moksha Aap Ke Charanon Men
--- You are the one who relieve the sufferings of people and show them the Divine Light of Truth.
You are the one who can remove the soul from re- births, salvation is at your feet.

Ek Baar Jo Darshan Paataa Hai, So Aap Hi Kaa Ho Jaataa Hai;
Kyaa Gupt Aap Ki Preeti Hai, Hai Dhanya Aap Ke Charanon Men
--- Whoever succeeds in seeing you, becomes yours for ever.
How mysterious is your love that one becomes blessed at your feet

Mein Janam Janam Kaa Bhoolaa Sharan Padaa, Ab Aakar Aap Ke Dwaar Padaa;
Ab Meto Janam Kaa Bandhan Meraa, Hai Nirmal Aapke Charanon Men
--- I was lost in those countless births, but have now come to your door for shelter.
Please liberate me from the bondage of re-births, and purify me at your feet.

Neither pilgrimage, nor penance will liberate you, unless you follow the guidance of the Satguru.

He who sleeps is at loss, and he who is awake is at gain.

Tuk Neend Se Ankhiyaan Khol Zaraa, Aur Apne Prabhu Se Dhyaan Lagaa.
Yaha Preet Karan Ki Reet Nahin, Prabhu Jaagat Hai Tu Sovat Hai…
--- Wake up from your slumber and meditate on the Lord
How can you enjoy sleep when the Lord is awake, waiting for you.

Jo Kal Karnaa Hai Aaj Karle, Jo Aaj Kare Wo Ab Karle.
Jab Chidiyaa Ne Chug Khet Liya Phir Pachtaaye Kya Hovat Hai…
--- What you have to do tomorrow, do today; what you have to do today, do it now!
Why regret now that the birds have eaten up all the grains from your fields while you were enjoying your sleep.

Naadaan Bhugat Apni Karni, E Paapi Paap Men Chain Kahaan;
Jab Paap Ki Gathari Seesh Dhari, Ab Seesh Pakad Kyun Rovat Hai…
--- You reap what you sow; Is there any peace in sinning?
When you are now loaded with sins, what’s the use of holding your head and cry?

This body is as fragile as bubbles of water.
In no time its splendour will disappear.

Yeh Paanch Tattva Ke Kaayaa, Yaako Bhed Ved Na Paayaa;
Yaamen Chatho Tattva Darshaayaa, Aur Panchi Bilmaayaa,
Re Man Shailaanee Kaa.
--- Even the Vedas have not been able to understand its deepest secrets;
The mind, like an unstable bird, couldn’t recognise its sixth element.
This is the result of being insentient.

Jab Hans Akelaa Jaataa, Dhan Maal Padaa Rah Jaataa;
Teraa Koyi Kaam Na Aataa, Tu Phir Paache Pachtaataa,

--- When the soul departs it leaves behind all wealth and possessions.
None of these are of use to you, so in the end you regret.
This is the result of foolishness.

Tune Maanush Tan Ko Paayaa, Bharm Men Pad Vyarth Ganwaayaa;
Prabhu Se Lau Nahin Lagaayaa, Dhan Daulat Dekh Lubhaayaa,

--- You were fortunate enough to have obtained human birth but, engrossed in doubts, you wasted your whole life.
Instead of worshipping the Lord with love you attached yourself with wealth.
This is the result of ignorance.

Yeh Bhadaidaas Kaa Kehnaa, Mat Gaphlat Men Tu Rahanaa;
Jo Chaahe Bhow Se Utarnaa, To Guru Kaa Naam Sumarnaa,
Kaam Hai Gyaanee Kaa…
--- Bhadaidaas instructed us not to live in illusion.
If you want to get liberation sing the glories of the Lord.
Only this is the work of the wise.
