ਤਬ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਾਜੁ ਸਵਾਰਹਿ ਆਇ ॥੧॥
tab prabh kaaj savaareh aae |1|

then God comes and resolves his affairs. ||1||

ਐਸਾ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਬਿਚਾਰੁ ਮਨਾ ॥
aaisaa giaan bichaar manaa |

Contemplate such spiritual wisdom, O mortal man.

ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਨ ਸਿਮਰਹੁ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
har kee na simarahu dukh bhanjanaa |1| rahaau |

Why not meditate in remembrance on the Lord, the Destroyer of pain? ||1||Pause||

ਜਬ ਲਗੁ ਸਿੰਘੁ ਰਹੈ ਬਨ ਮਾਹਿ ॥
jab lag singh rahai ban maeh |

As long as the tiger lives in the forest,

ਤਬ ਲਗੁ ਬਨੁ ਫੂਲੈ ਹੀ ਨਾਹਿ ॥
tab lag ban foolai hee naeh |

the forest does not flower.

ਜਬ ਹੀ ਸਿਆਰੁ ਸਿੰਘ ਕਉ ਖਾਇ ॥
jab hee siaar singh kau khaae |

But when the jackal eats the tiger,

ਫੂਲਿ ਰਹੀ ਸਗਲੀ ਬਨਰਾਇ ॥੨॥
fool rahee sagalee banaraae |2|

then the entire forest flowers. ||2||

ਜੀਤੋ ਬੂਡੈ ਹਾਰੋ ਤਿਰੈ ॥
jeeto booddai haaro tirai |

The victorious are drowned, while the defeated swim across.

ਗੁਰਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਪਾਰਿ ਉਤਰੈ ॥

By Guru's Grace, one crosses over and is saved.

ਦਾਸੁ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਕਹੈ ਸਮਝਾਇ ॥

Slave Kabeer speaks and teaches:

ਕੇਵਲ ਰਾਮ ਰਹਹੁ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥੩॥੬॥੧੪॥

remain lovingly absorbed, attuned to the Lord alone. ||3||6||14||

ਸਤਰਿ ਸੈਇ ਸਲਾਰ ਹੈ ਜਾ ਕੇ ॥
satar saie salaar hai jaa ke |

He has 7,000 commanders,

ਸਵਾ ਲਾਖੁ ਪੈਕਾਬਰ ਤਾ ਕੇ ॥

and hundreds of thousands of prophets;

ਸੇਖ ਜੁ ਕਹੀਅਹਿ ਕੋਟਿ ਅਠਾਸੀ ॥
sekh ju kaheeeh kott atthaasee |

He is said to have 88,000,000 shaykhs,

ਛਪਨ ਕੋਟਿ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਖੇਲ ਖਾਸੀ ॥੧॥
chhapan kott jaa ke khel khaasee |1|

and 56,000,000 attendants. ||1||

ਮੋ ਗਰੀਬ ਕੀ ਕੋ ਗੁਜਰਾਵੈ ॥
mo gareeb kee ko gujaraavai |

I am meek and poor - what chance do I have of being heard there?

ਮਜਲਸਿ ਦੂਰਿ ਮਹਲੁ ਕੋ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
majalas door mahal ko paavai |1| rahaau |

His Court is so far away; only a rare few attain the Mansion of His Presence. ||1||Pause||

ਉਨਿ ਭੀ ਭਿਸਤਿ ਘਨੇਰੀ ਪਾਈ ॥੨॥
aun bhee bhisat ghaneree paaee |2|

who then lived in paradise for a long time. ||2||

ਦਿਲ ਖਲਹਲੁ ਜਾ ਕੈ ਜਰਦ ਰੂ ਬਾਨੀ ॥
dil khalahal jaa kai jarad roo baanee |

Pale are the faces of those whose hearts are disturbed.

ਛੋਡਿ ਕਤੇਬ ਕਰੈ ਸੈਤਾਨੀ ॥
chhodd kateb karai saitaanee |

They have forsaken their Bible, and practice Satanic evil.

ਦੁਨੀਆ ਦੋਸੁ ਰੋਸੁ ਹੈ ਲੋਈ ॥
duneea dos ros hai loee |

One who blames the world, and is angry with people,

ਅਪਨਾ ਕੀਆ ਪਾਵੈ ਸੋਈ ॥੩॥
apanaa keea paavai soee |3|

shall receive the fruits of his own actions. ||3||

ਤੁਮ ਦਾਤੇ ਹਮ ਸਦਾ ਭਿਖਾਰੀ ॥
tum daate ham sadaa bhikhaaree |

You are the Great Giver, O Lord; I am forever a beggar at Your Door.

ਦੇਉ ਜਬਾਬੁ ਹੋਇ ਬਜਗਾਰੀ ॥

ਨਾ ਜਾਨਉ ਬੈਕੁੰਠੁ ਹੈ ਕਹਾਂ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
naa jaanau baikuntth hai kahaan |1| rahaau |

aap aap kaa maram na jaanaan |

One who does not even know the mystery of his own self,

ਬਾਤਨ ਹੀ ਬੈਕੁੰਠੁ ਬਖਾਨਾਂ ॥੧॥
baatan hee baikuntth bakhaanaan |1|

speaks of heaven, but it is only talk. ||1||

ਜਬ ਲਗੁ ਮਨ ਬੈਕੁੰਠ ਕੀ ਆਸ ॥
jab lag man baikuntth kee aas |

As long as the mortal hopes for heaven,

ਤਬ ਲਗੁ ਨਾਹੀ ਚਰਨ ਨਿਵਾਸ ॥੨॥
tab lag naahee charan nivaas |2|

he will not dwell at the Lord's Feet. ||2||

ਖਾਈ ਕੋਟੁ ਨ ਪਰਲ ਪਗਾਰਾ ॥
khaaee kott na paral pagaaraa |

Heaven is not a fort with moats and ramparts, and walls plastered with mud;

ਨਾ ਜਾਨਉ ਬੈਕੁੰਠ ਦੁਆਰਾ ॥੩॥

I do not know what heaven's gate is like. ||3||

It has double walls and triple moats. ||1||Pause||

ਪਾਂਚ ਪਚੀਸ ਮੋਹ ਮਦ ਮਤਸਰ ਆਡੀ ਪਰਬਲ ਮਾਇਆ ॥
paanch pachees moh mad matasar aaddee parabal maaeaa |

It is defended by the five elements, the twenty-five categories, attachment, pride, jealousy and the awesomely powerful Maya.

ਜਨ ਗਰੀਬ ਕੋ ਜੋਰੁ ਨ ਪਹੁਚੈ ਕਹਾ ਕਰਉ ਰਘੁਰਾਇਆ ॥੧॥
jan gareeb ko jor na pahuchai kahaa krau raghuraaeaa |1|

The poor mortal being does not have the strength to conquer it; what should I do now, O Lord? ||1||

ਕਾਮੁ ਕਿਵਾਰੀ ਦੁਖੁ ਸੁਖੁ ਦਰਵਾਨੀ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦਰਵਾਜਾ ॥
kaam kivaaree dukh sukh daravaanee paap pun daravaajaa |

Sexual desire is the window, pain and pleasure are the gate-keepers, virtue and sin are the gates.

ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਪ੍ਰਧਾਨੁ ਮਹਾ ਬਡ ਦੁੰਦਰ ਤਹ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਵਾਸੀ ਰਾਜਾ ॥੨॥
krodh pradhaan mahaa badd dundar tah man maavaasee raajaa |2|

Anger is the great supreme commander, full of argument and strife, and the mind is the rebel king there. ||2||

ਸ੍ਵਾਦ ਸਨਾਹ ਟੋਪੁ ਮਮਤਾ ਕੋ ਕੁਬੁਧਿ ਕਮਾਨ ਚਢਾਈ ॥
svaad sanaah ttop mamataa ko kubudh kamaan chadtaaee |

Their armor is the pleasure of tastes and flavors, their helmets are worldly attachments; they take aim with their bows of corrupt intellect.

ਤਿਸਨਾ ਤੀਰ ਰਹੇ ਘਟ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਇਉ ਗਢੁ ਲੀਓ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥੩॥
tisanaa teer rahe ghatt bheetar iau gadt leeo na jaaee |3|

The greed that fills their hearts is the arrow; with these things, their fortress is impregnable. ||3||

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਪਲੀਤਾ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਹਵਾਈ ਗੋਲਾ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਚਲਾਇਆ ॥
prem paleetaa surat havaaee golaa giaan chalaaeaa |

But I have made divine love the fuse, and deep meditation the bomb; I have launched the rocket of spiritual wisdom.

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਅਗਨਿ ਸਹਜੇ ਪਰਜਾਲੀ ਏਕਹਿ ਚੋਟ ਸਿਝਾਇਆ ॥੪॥
braham agan sahaje parajaalee ekeh chott sijhaaeaa |4|

The fire of God is lit by intuition, and with one shot, the fortress is taken. ||4||

ਸਤੁ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਲੈ ਲਰਨੇ ਲਾਗਾ ਤੋਰੇ ਦੁਇ ਦਰਵਾਜਾ ॥
sat santokh lai larane laagaa tore due daravaajaa |

Taking truth and contentment with me, I begin the battle and storm both the gates.

ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਅਰੁ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਤੇ ਪਕਰਿਓ ਗਢ ਕੋ ਰਾਜਾ ॥੫॥
saadhasangat ar gur kee kripaa te pakario gadt ko raajaa |5|

In the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, and by Guru's Grace, I have captured the king of the fortress. ||5||
