Sri Guru Granth Sahib

ਕਿਝੁ ਨ ਬੁਝੈ ਕਿਝੁ ਨ ਸੁਝੈ ਦੁਨੀਆ ਗੁਝੀ ਭਾਹਿ ॥
kijh na bujhai kijh na sujhai duneea gujhee bhaeh |

I know nothing; I understand nothing. The world is a smouldering fire.

ਸਾਂਈਂ ਮੇਰੈ ਚੰਗਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਨਾਹੀ ਤ ਹੰ ਭੀ ਦਝਾਂ ਆਹਿ ॥੩॥
saaneen merai changaa keetaa naahee ta han bhee dajhaan aaeh |3|

My Lord did well to warn me about it; otherwise, I would have been burnt as well. ||3||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜੇ ਜਾਣਾ ਤਿਲ ਥੋੜੜੇ ਸੰਮਲਿ ਬੁਕੁ ਭਰੀ ॥
fareedaa je jaanaa til thorrarre samal buk bharee |

Fareed, if I had known that I had so few sesame seeds, I would have been more careful with them in my hands.

ਜੇ ਜਾਣਾ ਸਹੁ ਨੰਢੜਾ ਤਾਂ ਥੋੜਾ ਮਾਣੁ ਕਰੀ ॥੪॥
je jaanaa sahu nandtarraa taan thorraa maan karee |4|

If I had known that my Husband Lord was so young and innocent, I would not have been so arrogant. ||4||

ਜੇ ਜਾਣਾ ਲੜੁ ਛਿਜਣਾ ਪੀਡੀ ਪਾਈਂ ਗੰਢਿ ॥
je jaanaa larr chhijanaa peeddee paaeen gandt |

If I had known that my robe would come loose, I would have tied a tighter knot.

ਤੈ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਮੈ ਨਾਹਿ ਕੋ ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਡਿਠਾ ਹੰਢਿ ॥੫॥
tai jevadd mai naeh ko sabh jag dditthaa handt |5|

I have found none as great as You, Lord; I have looked and searched throughout the world. ||5||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜੇ ਤੂ ਅਕਲਿ ਲਤੀਫੁ ਕਾਲੇ ਲਿਖੁ ਨ ਲੇਖ ॥
fareedaa je too akal lateef kaale likh na lekh |

Fareed, if you have a keen understanding, then do not write black marks against anyone else.

ਆਪਨੜੇ ਗਿਰੀਵਾਨ ਮਹਿ ਸਿਰੁ ਨਂੀਵਾਂ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖੁ ॥੬॥
aapanarre gireevaan meh sir naneevaan kar dekh |6|

Look underneath your own collar instead. ||6||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜੋ ਤੈ ਮਾਰਨਿ ਮੁਕੀਆਂ ਤਿਨੑਾ ਨ ਮਾਰੇ ਘੁੰਮਿ ॥
fareedaa jo tai maaran mukeean tinaa na maare ghunm |

Fareed, do not turn around and strike those who strike you with their fists.

ਆਪਨੜੈ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਈਐ ਪੈਰ ਤਿਨੑਾ ਦੇ ਚੁੰਮਿ ॥੭॥
aapanarrai ghar jaaeeai pair tinaa de chunm |7|

Kiss their feet, and return to your own home. ||7||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜਾਂ ਤਉ ਖਟਣ ਵੇਲ ਤਾਂ ਤੂ ਰਤਾ ਦੁਨੀ ਸਿਉ ॥
fareedaa jaan tau khattan vel taan too rataa dunee siau |

Fareed, when there was time for you to earn good karma, you were in love with the world instead.

ਮਰਗ ਸਵਾਈ ਨੀਹਿ ਜਾਂ ਭਰਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਲਦਿਆ ॥੮॥
marag savaaee neehi jaan bhariaa taan ladiaa |8|

Now, death has a strong foothold; when the load is full, it is taken away. ||8||

ਦੇਖੁ ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜੁ ਥੀਆ ਦਾੜੀ ਹੋਈ ਭੂਰ ॥
dekh fareedaa ju theea daarree hoee bhoor |

See, Fareed, what has happened: your beard has become grey.

ਅਗਹੁ ਨੇੜਾ ਆਇਆ ਪਿਛਾ ਰਹਿਆ ਦੂਰਿ ॥੯॥
agahu nerraa aaeaa pichhaa rahiaa door |9|

That which is coming is near, and the past is left far behind. ||9||

ਦੇਖੁ ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜਿ ਥੀਆ ਸਕਰ ਹੋਈ ਵਿਸੁ ॥
dekh fareedaa ji theea sakar hoee vis |

See, Fareed, what has happened: sugar has become poison.

ਸਾਂਈ ਬਾਝਹੁ ਆਪਣੇ ਵੇਦਣ ਕਹੀਐ ਕਿਸੁ ॥੧੦॥
saanee baajhahu aapane vedan kaheeai kis |10|

Without my Lord, who can I tell of my sorrow? ||10||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਅਖੀ ਦੇਖਿ ਪਤੀਣੀਆਂ ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਰੀਣੇ ਕੰਨ ॥
fareedaa akhee dekh pateeneean sun sun reene kan |

Fareed, my eyes have become weak, and my ears have become hard of hearing.

ਸਾਖ ਪਕੰਦੀ ਆਈਆ ਹੋਰ ਕਰੇਂਦੀ ਵੰਨ ॥੧੧॥
saakh pakandee aaeea hor karendee van |11|

The body's crop has become ripe and turned color. ||11||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਕਾਲਂੀ ਜਿਨੀ ਨ ਰਾਵਿਆ ਧਉਲੀ ਰਾਵੈ ਕੋਇ ॥
fareedaa kaalanee jinee na raaviaa dhaulee raavai koe |

Fareed, those who did not enjoy their Spouse when their hair was black - hardly any of them enjoy Him when their hair turns grey.

ਕਰਿ ਸਾਂਈ ਸਿਉ ਪਿਰਹੜੀ ਰੰਗੁ ਨਵੇਲਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੧੨॥
kar saanee siau piraharree rang navelaa hoe |12|

So be in love with the Lord, so that your color may ever be new. ||12||

ਮਃ ੩ ॥
mahalaa 3 |

Third Mehl:

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਕਾਲੀ ਧਉਲੀ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਦਾ ਹੈ ਜੇ ਕੋ ਚਿਤਿ ਕਰੇ ॥
fareedaa kaalee dhaulee saahib sadaa hai je ko chit kare |

Fareed, whether one's hair is black or grey, our Lord and Master is always here if one remembers Him.

ਆਪਣਾ ਲਾਇਆ ਪਿਰਮੁ ਨ ਲਗਈ ਜੇ ਲੋਚੈ ਸਭੁ ਕੋਇ ॥
aapanaa laaeaa piram na lagee je lochai sabh koe |

This loving devotion to the Lord does not come by one's own efforts, even though all may long for it.

ਏਹੁ ਪਿਰਮੁ ਪਿਆਲਾ ਖਸਮ ਕਾ ਜੈ ਭਾਵੈ ਤੈ ਦੇਇ ॥੧੩॥
ehu piram piaalaa khasam kaa jai bhaavai tai dee |13|

This cup of loving devotion belongs to our Lord and Master; He gives it to whomever He likes. ||13||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜਿਨੑ ਲੋਇਣ ਜਗੁ ਮੋਹਿਆ ਸੇ ਲੋਇਣ ਮੈ ਡਿਠੁ ॥
fareedaa jina loein jag mohiaa se loein mai dditth |

Fareed, those eyes which have enticed the world - I have seen those eyes.

ਕਜਲ ਰੇਖ ਨ ਸਹਦਿਆ ਸੇ ਪੰਖੀ ਸੂਇ ਬਹਿਠੁ ॥੧੪॥
kajal rekh na sahadiaa se pankhee sooe bahitth |14|

Once, they could not endure even a bit of mascara; now, the birds hatch their young in them! ||14||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਕੂਕੇਦਿਆ ਚਾਂਗੇਦਿਆ ਮਤੀ ਦੇਦਿਆ ਨਿਤ ॥
fareedaa kookediaa chaangediaa matee dediaa nit |

Fareed, they shouted and yelled, and constantly gave good advice.

ਜੋ ਸੈਤਾਨਿ ਵੰਞਾਇਆ ਸੇ ਕਿਤ ਫੇਰਹਿ ਚਿਤ ॥੧੫॥
jo saitaan vanyaaeaa se kit fereh chit |15|

But those whom the devil has spoiled - how can they turn their consciousness towards God? ||15||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਥੀਉ ਪਵਾਹੀ ਦਭੁ ॥
fareedaa theeo pavaahee dabh |

Fareed, become the grass on the path,

ਜੇ ਸਾਂਈ ਲੋੜਹਿ ਸਭੁ ॥
je saanee lorreh sabh |

if you long for the Lord of all.

ਇਕੁ ਛਿਜਹਿ ਬਿਆ ਲਤਾੜੀਅਹਿ ॥
eik chhijeh biaa lataarreeeh |

One will cut you down, and another will trample you underfoot;

ਤਾਂ ਸਾਈ ਦੈ ਦਰਿ ਵਾੜੀਅਹਿ ॥੧੬॥
taan saaee dai dar vaarreeeh |16|

then, you shall enter the Court of the Lord. ||16||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਖਾਕੁ ਨ ਨਿੰਦੀਐ ਖਾਕੂ ਜੇਡੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥
fareedaa khaak na nindeeai khaakoo jedd na koe |

Fareed, do not slander the dust; noting is as great as dust.

ਜੀਵਦਿਆ ਪੈਰਾ ਤਲੈ ਮੁਇਆ ਉਪਰਿ ਹੋਇ ॥੧੭॥
jeevadiaa pairaa talai mueaa upar hoe |17|

When we are alive, it is under our feet, and when we are dead, it is above us. ||17||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜਾ ਲਬੁ ਤਾ ਨੇਹੁ ਕਿਆ ਲਬੁ ਤ ਕੂੜਾ ਨੇਹੁ ॥
fareedaa jaa lab taa nehu kiaa lab ta koorraa nehu |

Fareed, when there is greed, what love can there be? When there is greed, love is false.

ਕਿਚਰੁ ਝਤਿ ਲਘਾਈਐ ਛਪਰਿ ਤੁਟੈ ਮੇਹੁ ॥੧੮॥
kichar jhat laghaaeeai chhapar tuttai mehu |18|

How long can one remain in a thatched hut which leaks when it rains? ||18||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਜੰਗਲੁ ਜੰਗਲੁ ਕਿਆ ਭਵਹਿ ਵਣਿ ਕੰਡਾ ਮੋੜੇਹਿ ॥
fareedaa jangal jangal kiaa bhaveh van kanddaa morrehi |

Fareed, why do you wander from jungle to jungle, crashing through the thorny trees?

ਵਸੀ ਰਬੁ ਹਿਆਲੀਐ ਜੰਗਲੁ ਕਿਆ ਢੂਢੇਹਿ ॥੧੯॥
vasee rab hiaaleeai jangal kiaa dtoodtehi |19|

The Lord abides in the heart; why are you looking for Him in the jungle? ||19||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਇਨੀ ਨਿਕੀ ਜੰਘੀਐ ਥਲ ਡੂੰਗਰ ਭਵਿਓਮਿੑ ॥
fareedaa inee nikee jangheeai thal ddoongar bhaviomi |

Fareed, with these small legs, I crossed deserts and mountains.

ਅਜੁ ਫਰੀਦੈ ਕੂਜੜਾ ਸੈ ਕੋਹਾਂ ਥੀਓਮਿ ॥੨੦॥
aj fareedai koojarraa sai kohaan theeom |20|

But today, Fareed, my water jug seems hundreds of miles away. ||20||

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਰਾਤੀ ਵਡੀਆਂ ਧੁਖਿ ਧੁਖਿ ਉਠਨਿ ਪਾਸ ॥
fareedaa raatee vaddeean dhukh dhukh utthan paas |

Fareed, the nights are long, and my sides are aching in pain.
