ਖੁੰਢਾ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਰਖਿ ਕੈ ਦੇਨਿ ਸੁ ਮਲ ਸਜਾਇ ॥
khundtaa andar rakh kai den su mal sajaae |

and then, it is placed between the wooden rollers and crushed.

ਰਸੁ ਕਸੁ ਟਟਰਿ ਪਾਈਐ ਤਪੈ ਤੈ ਵਿਲਲਾਇ ॥
ras kas ttattar paaeeai tapai tai vilalaae |

What punishment is inflicted upon it! Its juice is extracted and placed in the cauldron; as it is heated, it groans and cries out.

ਭੀ ਸੋ ਫੋਗੁ ਸਮਾਲੀਐ ਦਿਚੈ ਅਗਿ ਜਾਲਾਇ ॥
bhee so fog samaaleeai dichai ag jaalaae |

And then, the crushed cane is collected and burnt in the fire below.

ਨਾਨਕ ਮਿਠੈ ਪਤਰੀਐ ਵੇਖਹੁ ਲੋਕਾ ਆਇ ॥੨॥
naanak mitthai patareeai vekhahu lokaa aae |2|

Nanak: come, people, and see how the sweet sugar-cane is treated! ||2||

Some do not think of death; they entertain great hopes.

ਮਰਿ ਮਰਿ ਜੰਮਹਿ ਨਿਤ ਕਿਸੈ ਨ ਕੇਰਿਆ ॥
mar mar jameh nit kisai na keriaa |

They die, and are re-born, and die, over and over again. They are of no use at all!

ਆਪਨੜੈ ਮਨਿ ਚਿਤਿ ਕਹਨਿ ਚੰਗੇਰਿਆ ॥
aapanarrai man chit kahan changeriaa |

In their conscious minds, they call themselves good.

ਜਮਰਾਜੈ ਨਿਤ ਨਿਤ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਹੇਰਿਆ ॥
jamaraajai nit nit manamukh heriaa |

The King of the Angels of Death hunts down those self-willed manmukhs, over and over again.

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਲੂਣ ਹਾਰਾਮ ਕਿਆ ਨ ਜਾਣਿਆ ॥
manamukh loon haaraam kiaa na jaaniaa |

The manmukhs are false to their own selves; they feel no gratitude for what they have been given.

ਬਧੇ ਕਰਨਿ ਸਲਾਮ ਖਸਮ ਨ ਭਾਣਿਆ ॥
badhe karan salaam khasam na bhaaniaa |

Those who merely perform rituals of worship are not pleasing to their Lord and Master.

ਸਚੁ ਮਿਲੈ ਮੁਖਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਭਾਵਸੀ ॥
sach milai mukh naam saahib bhaavasee |

Those who attain the True Lord and chant His Name are pleasing to the Lord.

ਕਰਸਨਿ ਤਖਤਿ ਸਲਾਮੁ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਪਾਵਸੀ ॥੧੧॥
karasan takhat salaam likhiaa paavasee |11|

They worship the Lord and bow at His Throne. They fulfill their pre-ordained destiny. ||11||
