aaise ghar ham bahut basaae |

I lived in many such homes, O Lord,

ਜਬ ਹਮ ਰਾਮ ਗਰਭ ਹੋਇ ਆਏ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jab ham raam garabh hoe aae |1| rahaau |

before I came into the womb this time. ||1||Pause||

ਜੋਗੀ ਜਤੀ ਤਪੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਚਾਰੀ ॥
jogee jatee tapee brahamachaaree |

I was a Yogi, a celibate, a penitent, and a Brahmchaaree, with strict self-discipline.

ਕਬਹੂ ਰਾਜਾ ਛਤ੍ਰਪਤਿ ਕਬਹੂ ਭੇਖਾਰੀ ॥੨॥
kabahoo raajaa chhatrapat kabahoo bhekhaaree |2|

Sometimes I was a king, sitting on the throne, and sometimes I was a beggar. ||2||

ਸਾਕਤ ਮਰਹਿ ਸੰਤ ਸਭਿ ਜੀਵਹਿ ॥
saakat mareh sant sabh jeeveh |

The faithless cynics shall die, while the Saints shall all survive.

ਰਾਮ ਰਸਾਇਨੁ ਰਸਨਾ ਪੀਵਹਿ ॥੩॥
raam rasaaein rasanaa peeveh |3|

I am so tired; now, please bless me with Your perfection. ||4||13||

aaiso acharaj dekhio kabeer |

Kabeer has seen such wonders!

ਦਧਿ ਕੈ ਭੋਲੈ ਬਿਰੋਲੈ ਨੀਰੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
dadh kai bholai birolai neer |1| rahaau |

Mistaking it for cream, the people are churning water. ||1||Pause||

ਹਰੀ ਅੰਗੂਰੀ ਗਦਹਾ ਚਰੈ ॥
haree angooree gadahaa charai |

The donkey grazes upon the green grass;

ਨਿਤ ਉਠਿ ਹਾਸੈ ਹੀਗੈ ਮਰੈ ॥੧॥
nit utth haasai heegai marai |1|

arising each day, he laughs and brays, and then dies. ||1||

ਮਾਤਾ ਭੈਸਾ ਅੰਮੁਹਾ ਜਾਇ ॥
maataa bhaisaa amuhaa jaae |

The bull is intoxicated, and runs around wildly.

ਕੁਦਿ ਕੁਦਿ ਚਰੈ ਰਸਾਤਲਿ ਪਾਇ ॥੨॥
kud kud charai rasaatal paae |2|

He romps and eats and then falls into hell. ||2||

ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਪਰਗਟੁ ਭਈ ਖੇਡ ॥
kahu kabeer paragatt bhee khedd |

Says Kabeer, a strange sport has become manifest:

ਲੇਲੇ ਕਉ ਚੂਘੈ ਨਿਤ ਭੇਡ ॥੩॥
lele kau chooghai nit bhedd |3|

the sheep is sucking the milk of her lamb. ||3||

ਰਾਮ ਰਮਤ ਮਤਿ ਪਰਗਟੀ ਆਈ ॥
raam ramat mat paragattee aaee |

Chanting the Lord's Name, my intellect is enlightened.

ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਗੁਰਿ ਸੋਝੀ ਪਾਈ ॥੪॥੧॥੧੪॥
kahu kabeer gur sojhee paaee |4|1|14|

Says Kabeer, the Guru has blessed me with this understanding. ||4||1||14||

ਗਉੜੀ ਕਬੀਰ ਜੀ ਪੰਚਪਦੇ ॥
gaurree kabeer jee panchapade |

Gauree, Kabeer Jee, Panch-Padhay:

ਜਿਉ ਜਲ ਛੋਡਿ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਭਇਓ ਮੀਨਾ ॥
jiau jal chhodd baahar bheio meenaa |

I am like a fish out of water,

ਪੂਰਬ ਜਨਮ ਹਉ ਤਪ ਕਾ ਹੀਨਾ ॥੧॥
poorab janam hau tap kaa heenaa |1|

because in my previous life, I did not practice penance and intense meditation. ||1||

ਅਬ ਕਹੁ ਰਾਮ ਕਵਨ ਗਤਿ ਮੋਰੀ ॥
ab kahu raam kavan gat moree |

Now tell me, Lord, what will my condition be?

ਤਜੀ ਲੇ ਬਨਾਰਸ ਮਤਿ ਭਈ ਥੋਰੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
tajee le banaaras mat bhee thoree |1| rahaau |

For many years, I practiced penance and intense meditation at Kaashi;

ਮਰਨੁ ਭਇਆ ਮਗਹਰ ਕੀ ਬਾਸੀ ॥੩॥
maran bheaa magahar kee baasee |3|

now that my time to die has come, I have come to dwell at Magahar! ||3||

ਕਾਸੀ ਮਗਹਰ ਸਮ ਬੀਚਾਰੀ ॥
kaasee magahar sam beechaaree |

Kaashi and Magahar - I consider them the same.

ਓਛੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਕੈਸੇ ਉਤਰਸਿ ਪਾਰੀ ॥੪॥
ochhee bhagat kaise utaras paaree |4|

With inadequate devotion, how can anyone swim across? ||4||

ਕਹੁ ਗੁਰ ਗਜ ਸਿਵ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਜਾਨੈ ॥
kahu gur gaj siv sabh ko jaanai |

Says Kabeer, the Guru and Ganaysha and Shiva all know

ਮੁਆ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਰਮਤ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਰਾਮੈ ॥੫॥੧੫॥

choaa chandan maradan angaa |

You may anoint your limbs with sandalwood oil,

ਸੋ ਤਨੁ ਜਲੈ ਕਾਠ ਕੈ ਸੰਗਾ ॥੧॥
so tan jalai kaatth kai sangaa |1|

but in the end, that body will be burned with the firewood. ||1||

ਇਸੁ ਤਨ ਧਨ ਕੀ ਕਵਨ ਬਡਾਈ ॥
eis tan dhan kee kavan baddaaee |

Why should anyone take pride in this body or wealth?

ਧਰਨਿ ਪਰੈ ਉਰਵਾਰਿ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
dharan parai uravaar na jaaee |1| rahaau |

They shall end up lying on the ground; they shall not go along with you to the world beyond. ||1||Pause||

raat ji soveh din kareh kaam |

They sleep by night and work during the day,

ਇਕੁ ਖਿਨੁ ਲੇਹਿ ਨ ਹਰਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਮ ॥੨॥
eik khin lehi na har ko naam |2|

but they do not chant the Lord's Name, even for an instant. ||2||

ਹਾਥਿ ਤ ਡੋਰ ਮੁਖਿ ਖਾਇਓ ਤੰਬੋਰ ॥
haath ta ddor mukh khaaeio tanbor |

They hold the string of the kite in their hands, and chew betel leaves in their mouths,

ਮਰਤੀ ਬਾਰ ਕਸਿ ਬਾਧਿਓ ਚੋਰ ॥੩॥
maratee baar kas baadhio chor |3|

but at the time of death, they shall be tied up tight, like thieves. ||3||

ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਰਸਿ ਰਸਿ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਨ ਗਾਵੈ ॥
guramat ras ras har gun gaavai |

Through the Guru's Teachings, and immersed in His Love, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord.

ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਬਾਸੁ ਸੁਗੰਧ ਬਸਾਈ ॥੫॥
har har baas sugandh basaaee |5|

inhale deeply the sweet aroma and fragrance of the Lord, Har, Har. ||5||

ਕਹਤ ਕਬੀਰ ਚੇਤਿ ਰੇ ਅੰਧਾ ॥
kahat kabeer chet re andhaa |

Says Kabeer, remember Him, you blind fool!

ਸਤਿ ਰਾਮੁ ਝੂਠਾ ਸਭੁ ਧੰਧਾ ॥੬॥੧੬॥
sat raam jhootthaa sabh dhandhaa |6|16|

The Lord is True; all worldly affairs are false. ||6||16||

ਗਉੜੀ ਕਬੀਰ ਜੀ ਤਿਪਦੇ ਚਾਰਤੁਕੇ ॥
gaurree kabeer jee tipade chaaratuke |

Gauree, Kabeer Jee, Thi-Padhay And Chau-Thukay:

ਜਮ ਤੇ ਉਲਟਿ ਭਏ ਹੈ ਰਾਮ ॥
jam te ulatt bhe hai raam |

I have turned away from death and turned to the Lord.

ਦੁਖ ਬਿਨਸੇ ਸੁਖ ਕੀਓ ਬਿਸਰਾਮ ॥
dukh binase sukh keeo bisaraam |

Pain has been eliminated, and I dwell in peac and comfort.

ਬੈਰੀ ਉਲਟਿ ਭਏ ਹੈ ਮੀਤਾ ॥

saant bhee jab gobid jaaniaa |1| rahaau |

Peace and tranquility have come, since I realized the Lord of the Universe. ||1||Pause||
