sir khohaae peeeh malavaanee jootthaa mang mang khaahee |

They pluck the hair out of their heads, and drink in filthy water; they beg endlessly and eat the garbage which others have thrown away.

ਫੋਲਿ ਫਦੀਹਤਿ ਮੁਹਿ ਲੈਨਿ ਭੜਾਸਾ ਪਾਣੀ ਦੇਖਿ ਸਗਾਹੀ ॥
fol fadeehat muhi lain bharraasaa paanee dekh sagaahee |

They spread manure, they suck in rotting smells, and they are afraid of clean water.

ਭੇਡਾ ਵਾਗੀ ਸਿਰੁ ਖੋਹਾਇਨਿ ਭਰੀਅਨਿ ਹਥ ਸੁਆਹੀ ॥

Their hands are smeared with ashes, and the hair on their heads is plucked out-they are like sheep!

ਮਾਊ ਪੀਊ ਕਿਰਤੁ ਗਵਾਇਨਿ ਟਬਰ ਰੋਵਨਿ ਧਾਹੀ ॥
maaoo peeaoo kirat gavaaein ttabar rovan dhaahee |

They have renounced the lifestyle of their mothers and fathers, and their families and relatives cry out in distress.

onaa pindd na patal kiriaa na deevaa mue kithaaoo paahee |

No one offers the rice dishes at their last rites, and no one lights the lamps for them. After their death, where will they be sent?

atthasatth teerath den na dtoee brahaman an na khaahee |

The sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage give them no place of protection, and no Brahmin will eat their food.

ਸਦਾ ਕੁਚੀਲ ਰਹਹਿ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤੀ ਮਥੈ ਟਿਕੇ ਨਾਹੀ ॥
sadaa kucheel raheh din raatee mathai ttike naahee |

They remain polluted forever, day and night; they do not apply the ceremonial tilak mark to their foreheads.

They sit together in silence, as if in mourning; they do not go to the Lord's Court.

With their begging bowls hanging from their waists, and their fly-brushes in their hands, they walk along in single file.

ਨਾ ਓਇ ਜੋਗੀ ਨਾ ਓਇ ਜੰਗਮ ਨਾ ਓਇ ਕਾਜੀ ਮੁੰਲਾ ॥
naa oe jogee naa oe jangam naa oe kaajee munlaa |

They are not Yogis, and they are not Jangams, followers of Shiva. They are not Qazis or Mullahs.
