ਐਸੇ ਮਰਨੇ ਜੋ ਮਰੈ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਨ ਮਰਨਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੨੯॥
aaise marane jo marai bahur na maranaa hoe |29|

Let those who die, die such a death, that they shall never have to die again. ||29||

ਕਬੀਰ ਮਾਨਸ ਜਨਮੁ ਦੁਲੰਭੁ ਹੈ ਹੋਇ ਨ ਬਾਰੈ ਬਾਰ ॥
kabeer maanas janam dulanbh hai hoe na baarai baar |

Kabeer, it is so difficult to obtain this human body; it does not just come over and over again.

ਜਿਉ ਬਨ ਫਲ ਪਾਕੇ ਭੁਇ ਗਿਰਹਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਨ ਲਾਗਹਿ ਡਾਰ ॥੩੦॥
jiau ban fal paake bhue gireh bahur na laageh ddaar |30|

It is like the ripe fruit on the tree; when it falls to the ground, it cannot be re-attached to the branch. ||30||

ਕਬੀਰਾ ਤੁਹੀ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਤੂ ਤੇਰੋ ਨਾਉ ਕਬੀਰੁ ॥
kabeeraa tuhee kabeer too tero naau kabeer |

Kabeer, you are Kabeer; your name means great.

ਰਾਮ ਰਤਨੁ ਤਬ ਪਾਈਐ ਜਉ ਪਹਿਲੇ ਤਜਹਿ ਸਰੀਰੁ ॥੩੧॥
raam ratan tab paaeeai jau pahile tajeh sareer |31|

O Lord, You are Kabeer. The Jewel of the Lord is obtained, when the mortal first gives up his body. ||31||

ਕਬੀਰ ਝੰਖੁ ਨ ਝੰਖੀਐ ਤੁਮਰੋ ਕਹਿਓ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥
kabeer jhankh na jhankheeai tumaro kahio na hoe |

Kabeer, do not struggle in stubborn pride; nothing happens just because you say so.

ਕਰਮ ਕਰੀਮ ਜੁ ਕਰਿ ਰਹੇ ਮੇਟਿ ਨ ਸਾਕੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩੨॥
karam kareem ju kar rahe mett na saakai koe |32|

No one can erase the actions of the Merciful Lord. ||32||

ਕਬੀਰ ਕਸਉਟੀ ਰਾਮ ਕੀ ਝੂਠਾ ਟਿਕੈ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥
kabeer ksauttee raam kee jhootthaa ttikai na koe |

Kabeer, no one who is false can withstand the Touchstone of the Lord.

ਰਾਮ ਕਸਉਟੀ ਸੋ ਸਹੈ ਜੋ ਮਰਿ ਜੀਵਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੩੩॥
raam ksauttee so sahai jo mar jeevaa hoe |33|

He alone can pass the test of the Lord's Touchstone, who remains dead while yet alive. ||33||

ਕਬੀਰ ਊਜਲ ਪਹਿਰਹਿ ਕਾਪਰੇ ਪਾਨ ਸੁਪਾਰੀ ਖਾਹਿ ॥
kabeer aoojal pahireh kaapare paan supaaree khaeh |

Kabeer, some wear gaudy robes, and chew betel leaves and betel nuts.

ਏਕਸ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨੁ ਬਾਧੇ ਜਮ ਪੁਰਿ ਜਾਂਹਿ ॥੩੪॥
ekas har ke naam bin baadhe jam pur jaanhi |34|

Without the Name of the One Lord, they are bound and gagged and taken to the City of Death. ||34||

ਕਬੀਰ ਬੇੜਾ ਜਰਜਰਾ ਫੂਟੇ ਛੇਂਕ ਹਜਾਰ ॥
kabeer berraa jarajaraa footte chhenk hajaar |

Kabeer, the boat is old, and it has thousands of holes.

ਹਰੂਏ ਹਰੂਏ ਤਿਰਿ ਗਏ ਡੂਬੇ ਜਿਨ ਸਿਰ ਭਾਰ ॥੩੫॥
harooe harooe tir ge ddoobe jin sir bhaar |35|

Those who are light get across, while those who carry the weight of their sins on their heads are drowned. ||35||

ਕਬੀਰ ਹਾਡ ਜਰੇ ਜਿਉ ਲਾਕਰੀ ਕੇਸ ਜਰੇ ਜਿਉ ਘਾਸੁ ॥
kabeer haadd jare jiau laakaree kes jare jiau ghaas |

Kabeer, the bones burn like wood, and the hair burns like straw.

ਇਹੁ ਜਗੁ ਜਰਤਾ ਦੇਖਿ ਕੈ ਭਇਓ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਉਦਾਸੁ ॥੩੬॥
eihu jag jarataa dekh kai bheio kabeer udaas |36|

Seeing the world burning like this, Kabeer has become sad. ||36||

ਕਬੀਰ ਗਰਬੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੀਐ ਚਾਮ ਲਪੇਟੇ ਹਾਡ ॥
kabeer garab na keejeeai chaam lapette haadd |

Kabeer, do not be so proud of your bones wrapped up in skin.

ਹੈਵਰ ਊਪਰਿ ਛਤ੍ਰ ਤਰ ਤੇ ਫੁਨਿ ਧਰਨੀ ਗਾਡ ॥੩੭॥
haivar aoopar chhatr tar te fun dharanee gaadd |37|

Those who were on their horses and under their canopies, were eventually buried under the ground. ||37||

ਕਬੀਰ ਗਰਬੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੀਐ ਊਚਾ ਦੇਖਿ ਅਵਾਸੁ ॥
kabeer garab na keejeeai aoochaa dekh avaas |

Kabeer, do not be so proud of your tall mansions.

ਆਜੁ ਕਾਲਿੑ ਭੁਇ ਲੇਟਣਾ ਊਪਰਿ ਜਾਮੈ ਘਾਸੁ ॥੩੮॥
aaj kaali bhue lettanaa aoopar jaamai ghaas |38|

Today or tomorrow, you shall lie beneath the ground, and the grass shall grow above you. ||38||

ਕਬੀਰ ਗਰਬੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੀਐ ਰੰਕੁ ਨ ਹਸੀਐ ਕੋਇ ॥
kabeer garab na keejeeai rank na haseeai koe |

Kabeer, do not be so proud, and do not laugh at the poor.

ਅਜਹੁ ਸੁ ਨਾਉ ਸਮੁੰਦ੍ਰ ਮਹਿ ਕਿਆ ਜਾਨਉ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਇ ॥੩੯॥
ajahu su naau samundr meh kiaa jaanau kiaa hoe |39|

Your boat is still out at sea; who knows what will happen? ||39||

ਕਬੀਰ ਗਰਬੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੀਐ ਦੇਹੀ ਦੇਖਿ ਸੁਰੰਗ ॥
kabeer garab na keejeeai dehee dekh surang |

Kabeer, do not be so proud, looking at your beautiful body.

ਆਜੁ ਕਾਲਿੑ ਤਜਿ ਜਾਹੁਗੇ ਜਿਉ ਕਾਂਚੁਰੀ ਭੁਯੰਗ ॥੪੦॥
aaj kaali taj jaahuge jiau kaanchuree bhuyang |40|

Today or tomorrow, you will have to leave it behind, like the snake shedding its skin. ||40||

ਕਬੀਰ ਲੂਟਨਾ ਹੈ ਤ ਲੂਟਿ ਲੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਹੈ ਲੂਟਿ ॥
kabeer loottanaa hai ta loott lai raam naam hai loott |

Kabeer, if you must rob and plunder, then plunder the plunder of the Lord's Name.

ਫਿਰਿ ਪਾਛੈ ਪਛੁਤਾਹੁਗੇ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਜਾਹਿੰਗੇ ਛੂਟਿ ॥੪੧॥
fir paachhai pachhutaahuge praan jaahinge chhoott |41|

Otherwise, in the world hereafter, you will regret and repent, when the breath of life leaves the body. ||41||

ਕਬੀਰ ਐਸਾ ਕੋਈ ਨ ਜਨਮਿਓ ਅਪਨੈ ਘਰਿ ਲਾਵੈ ਆਗਿ ॥
kabeer aaisaa koee na janamio apanai ghar laavai aag |

Kabeer, there is no one born, who burns his own home,

ਪਾਂਚਉ ਲਰਿਕਾ ਜਾਰਿ ਕੈ ਰਹੈ ਰਾਮ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਗਿ ॥੪੨॥
paanchau larikaa jaar kai rahai raam liv laag |42|

and burning his five sons, remains lovingly attuned to the Lord. ||42||

ਕੋ ਹੈ ਲਰਿਕਾ ਬੇਚਈ ਲਰਿਕੀ ਬੇਚੈ ਕੋਇ ॥
ko hai larikaa bechee larikee bechai koe |

Kabeer, how rare are those who sell their son and sell their daughter

ਸਾਝਾ ਕਰੈ ਕਬੀਰ ਸਿਉ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਗਿ ਬਨਜੁ ਕਰੇਇ ॥੪੩॥
saajhaa karai kabeer siau har sang banaj karee |43|

and, entering into partnership with Kabeer, deal with the Lord. ||43||

ਕਬੀਰ ਇਹ ਚੇਤਾਵਨੀ ਮਤ ਸਹਸਾ ਰਹਿ ਜਾਇ ॥
kabeer ih chetaavanee mat sahasaa reh jaae |

Kabeer, let me remind you of this. Do not be skeptical or cynical.

ਪਾਛੈ ਭੋਗ ਜੁ ਭੋਗਵੇ ਤਿਨ ਕੋ ਗੁੜੁ ਲੈ ਖਾਹਿ ॥੪੪॥
paachhai bhog ju bhogave tin ko gurr lai khaeh |44|

Those pleasures which you enjoyed so much in the past - now you must eat their fruits. ||44||

ਕਬੀਰ ਮੈ ਜਾਨਿਓ ਪੜਿਬੋ ਭਲੋ ਪੜਿਬੇ ਸਿਉ ਭਲ ਜੋਗੁ ॥
kabeer mai jaanio parribo bhalo parribe siau bhal jog |

Kabeer, at first, I thought learning was good; then I thought Yoga was better.

ਭਗਤਿ ਨ ਛਾਡਉ ਰਾਮ ਕੀ ਭਾਵੈ ਨਿੰਦਉ ਲੋਗੁ ॥੪੫॥
bhagat na chhaaddau raam kee bhaavai nindau log |45|

I shall never abandon devotional worship of the Lord, even though people may slander me. ||45||

ਕਬੀਰ ਲੋਗੁ ਕਿ ਨਿੰਦੈ ਬਪੁੜਾ ਜਿਹ ਮਨਿ ਨਾਹੀ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥
kabeer log ki nindai bapurraa jih man naahee giaan |

Kabeer, how can the wretched people slander me? They have no wisdom or intelligence.

ਰਾਮ ਕਬੀਰਾ ਰਵਿ ਰਹੇ ਅਵਰ ਤਜੇ ਸਭ ਕਾਮ ॥੪੬॥
raam kabeeraa rav rahe avar taje sabh kaam |46|

Kabeer continues to dwell upon the Lord's Name; I have abandoned all other affairs. ||46||

ਕਬੀਰ ਪਰਦੇਸੀ ਕੈ ਘਾਘਰੈ ਚਹੁ ਦਿਸਿ ਲਾਗੀ ਆਗਿ ॥
kabeer paradesee kai ghaagharai chahu dis laagee aag |

Kabeer, the robe of the stranger-soul has caught fire on all four sides.

ਖਿੰਥਾ ਜਲਿ ਕੋਇਲਾ ਭਈ ਤਾਗੇ ਆਂਚ ਨ ਲਾਗ ॥੪੭॥
khinthaa jal koeilaa bhee taage aanch na laag |47|

The cloth of the body has been burnt and reduced to charcoal, but the fire did not touch the thread of the soul. ||47||
