ਬੰਦਕ ਹੋਇ ਬੰਧ ਸੁਧਿ ਲਹੈ ॥੨੯॥
bandak hoe bandh sudh lahai |29|

If you turn your thoughts to the Lord, the Lord will take care of you like a relative. ||29||

ਭਭਾ ਭੇਦਹਿ ਭੇਦ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ॥
bhabhaa bhedeh bhed milaavaa |

BHABHA: When doubt is pierced, union is achieved.

ਅਬ ਭਉ ਭਾਨਿ ਭਰੋਸਉ ਆਵਾ ॥
ab bhau bhaan bharosau aavaa |

I have shattered my fear, and now I have come to have faith.

ਜੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਸੋ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
jo baahar so bheetar jaaniaa |

I thought that He was outside of me, but now I know that He is within me.

ਭਇਆ ਭੇਦੁ ਭੂਪਤਿ ਪਹਿਚਾਨਿਆ ॥੩੦॥
bheaa bhed bhoopat pahichaaniaa |30|

When I came to understand this mystery, then I recognized the Lord. ||30||

ਮਮਾ ਮੂਲ ਗਹਿਆ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨੈ ॥
mamaa mool gahiaa man maanai |

MAMMA: Clinging to the source, the mind is satisfied.

ਮਰਮੀ ਹੋਇ ਸੁ ਮਨ ਕਉ ਜਾਨੈ ॥
maramee hoe su man kau jaanai |

One who knows this mystery understands his own mind.

ਮਤ ਕੋਈ ਮਨ ਮਿਲਤਾ ਬਿਲਮਾਵੈ ॥
mat koee man milataa bilamaavai |

Let no one delay in uniting his mind.

ਮਗਨ ਭਇਆ ਤੇ ਸੋ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੩੧॥
magan bheaa te so sach paavai |31|

Those who obtain the True Lord are immersed in delight. ||31||

ਮਮਾ ਮਨ ਸਿਉ ਕਾਜੁ ਹੈ ਮਨ ਸਾਧੇ ਸਿਧਿ ਹੋਇ ॥
mamaa man siau kaaj hai man saadhe sidh hoe |

MAMMA: The mortal's business is with his own mind; one who disciplines his mind attains perfection.

ਮਨ ਹੀ ਮਨ ਸਿਉ ਕਹੈ ਕਬੀਰਾ ਮਨ ਸਾ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥੩੨॥
man hee man siau kahai kabeeraa man saa miliaa na koe |32|

Only the mind can deal with the mind; says Kabeer, I have not met anything like the mind. ||32||

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਸਕਤੀ ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਸੀਉ ॥
eihu man sakatee ihu man seeo |

This mind is Shakti; this mind is Shiva.

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਪੰਚ ਤਤ ਕੋ ਜੀਉ ॥
eihu man panch tat ko jeeo |

This mind is the life of the five elements.

ਇਹੁ ਮਨੁ ਲੇ ਜਉ ਉਨਮਨਿ ਰਹੈ ॥
eihu man le jau unaman rahai |

When this mind is channeled, and guided to enlightenment,

ਤਉ ਤੀਨਿ ਲੋਕ ਕੀ ਬਾਤੈ ਕਹੈ ॥੩੩॥
tau teen lok kee baatai kahai |33|

it can describe the secrets of the three worlds. ||33||

ਯਯਾ ਜਉ ਜਾਨਹਿ ਤਉ ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਹਨਿ ਕਰਿ ਬਸਿ ਕਾਇਆ ਗਾਉ ॥
yayaa jau jaaneh tau duramat han kar bas kaaeaa gaau |

YAYYA: If you know anything, then destroy your evil-mindedness, and subjugate the body-village.

ਰਣਿ ਰੂਤਉ ਭਾਜੈ ਨਹੀ ਸੂਰਉ ਥਾਰਉ ਨਾਉ ॥੩੪॥
ran rootau bhaajai nahee soorau thaarau naau |34|

When you are engaged in the battle, don't run away; then, you shall be known as a spiritual hero. ||34||

ਰਾਰਾ ਰਸੁ ਨਿਰਸ ਕਰਿ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
raaraa ras niras kar jaaniaa |

RARRA: I have found tastes to be tasteless.

ਹੋਇ ਨਿਰਸ ਸੁ ਰਸੁ ਪਹਿਚਾਨਿਆ ॥
hoe niras su ras pahichaaniaa |

Becoming tasteless, I have realized that taste.

ਇਹ ਰਸ ਛਾਡੇ ਉਹ ਰਸੁ ਆਵਾ ॥
eih ras chhaadde uh ras aavaa |

Abandoning these tastes, I have found that taste.

ਉਹ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਆ ਇਹ ਰਸੁ ਨਹੀ ਭਾਵਾ ॥੩੫॥
auh ras peea ih ras nahee bhaavaa |35|

Drinking in that taste, this taste is no longer pleasing. ||35||

ਲਲਾ ਐਸੇ ਲਿਵ ਮਨੁ ਲਾਵੈ ॥
lalaa aaise liv man laavai |

LALLA: Embrace such love for the Lord in your mind,

ਅਨਤ ਨ ਜਾਇ ਪਰਮ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥
anat na jaae param sach paavai |

that you shall not have to go to any other; you shall attain the supreme truth.

ਅਰੁ ਜਉ ਤਹਾ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਵੈ ॥
ar jau tahaa prem liv laavai |

And if you embrace love and affection for Him there,

ਤਉ ਅਲਹ ਲਹੈ ਲਹਿ ਚਰਨ ਸਮਾਵੈ ॥੩੬॥
tau alah lahai leh charan samaavai |36|

then you shall obtain the Lord; obtaining Him, you shall be absorbed in His Feet. ||36||

ਵਵਾ ਬਾਰ ਬਾਰ ਬਿਸਨ ਸਮ੍ਹਾਰਿ ॥
vavaa baar baar bisan samhaar |

WAWA: Time and time again, dwell upon the Lord.

ਬਿਸਨ ਸੰਮ੍ਹਾਰਿ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਹਾਰਿ ॥
bisan samhaar na aavai haar |

Dwelling upon the Lord, defeat shall not come to you.

ਬਲਿ ਬਲਿ ਜੇ ਬਿਸਨਤਨਾ ਜਸੁ ਗਾਵੈ ॥
bal bal je bisanatanaa jas gaavai |

I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to those, who sing the praises of the Saints, the sons of the Lord.

ਵਿਸਨ ਮਿਲੇ ਸਭ ਹੀ ਸਚੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੩੭॥
visan mile sabh hee sach paavai |37|

Meeting the Lord, total Truth is obtained. ||37||

ਵਾਵਾ ਵਾਹੀ ਜਾਨੀਐ ਵਾ ਜਾਨੇ ਇਹੁ ਹੋਇ ॥
vaavaa vaahee jaaneeai vaa jaane ihu hoe |

WAWA: Know Him. By knowing Him, this mortal becomes Him.

ਇਹੁ ਅਰੁ ਓਹੁ ਜਬ ਮਿਲੈ ਤਬ ਮਿਲਤ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩੮॥
eihu ar ohu jab milai tab milat na jaanai koe |38|

When this soul and that Lord are blended, then, having been blended, they cannot be known separately. ||38||

ਸਸਾ ਸੋ ਨੀਕਾ ਕਰਿ ਸੋਧਹੁ ॥
sasaa so neekaa kar sodhahu |

SASSA: Discipline your mind with sublime perfection.

ਘਟ ਪਰਚਾ ਕੀ ਬਾਤ ਨਿਰੋਧਹੁ ॥
ghatt parachaa kee baat nirodhahu |

Refrain from that talk which attracts the heart.

ਘਟ ਪਰਚੈ ਜਉ ਉਪਜੈ ਭਾਉ ॥
ghatt parachai jau upajai bhaau |

The heart is attracted, when love wells up.

ਪੂਰਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਤਹ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣ ਰਾਉ ॥੩੯॥
poor rahiaa tah tribhavan raau |39|

The King of the three worlds is perfectly pervading and permeating there. ||39||

ਖਖਾ ਖੋਜਿ ਪਰੈ ਜਉ ਕੋਈ ॥
khakhaa khoj parai jau koee |

KHAKHA: Anyone who seeks Him, and by seeking Him,

ਜੋ ਖੋਜੈ ਸੋ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥
jo khojai so bahur na hoee |

finds Him, shall not be born again.

ਖੋਜ ਬੂਝਿ ਜਉ ਕਰੈ ਬੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
khoj boojh jau karai beechaaraa |

When someone seeks Him, and comes to understand and contemplate Him,

ਤਉ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਰਤ ਨ ਲਾਵੈ ਬਾਰਾ ॥੪੦॥
tau bhavajal tarat na laavai baaraa |40|

then he crosses over the terrifying world-ocean in an instant. ||40||

ਸਸਾ ਸੋ ਸਹ ਸੇਜ ਸਵਾਰੈ ॥
sasaa so sah sej savaarai |

SASSA: The bed of the soul-bride is adorned by her Husband Lord;

ਸੋਈ ਸਹੀ ਸੰਦੇਹ ਨਿਵਾਰੈ ॥
soee sahee sandeh nivaarai |

her skepticism is dispelled.

ਅਲਪ ਸੁਖ ਛਾਡਿ ਪਰਮ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਵਾ ॥
alap sukh chhaadd param sukh paavaa |

Renouncing the shallow pleasures of the world, she obtains the supreme delight.

ਤਬ ਇਹ ਤ੍ਰੀਅ ਓੁਹੁ ਕੰਤੁ ਕਹਾਵਾ ॥੪੧॥
tab ih treea ouhu kant kahaavaa |41|

Then, she is the soul-bride; He is called her Husband Lord. ||41||

ਹਾਹਾ ਹੋਤ ਹੋਇ ਨਹੀ ਜਾਨਾ ॥
haahaa hot hoe nahee jaanaa |

HAHA: He exists, but He is not known to exist.

ਜਬ ਹੀ ਹੋਇ ਤਬਹਿ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਾ ॥
jab hee hoe tabeh man maanaa |

When He is known to exist, then the mind is pleased and appeased.

ਹੈ ਤਉ ਸਹੀ ਲਖੈ ਜਉ ਕੋਈ ॥
hai tau sahee lakhai jau koee |

Of course the Lord exists, if one could only understand Him.

ਤਬ ਓਹੀ ਉਹੁ ਏਹੁ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥੪੨॥
tab ohee uhu ehu na hoee |42|

Then, He alone exists, and not this mortal being. ||42||

ਲਿੰਉ ਲਿੰਉ ਕਰਤ ਫਿਰੈ ਸਭੁ ਲੋਗੁ ॥
linau linau karat firai sabh log |

Everyone goes around saying, I'll take this, and I'll take that.

ਤਾ ਕਾਰਣਿ ਬਿਆਪੈ ਬਹੁ ਸੋਗੁ ॥
taa kaaran biaapai bahu sog |

Because of that, they suffer in terrible pain.

ਲਖਿਮੀ ਬਰ ਸਿਉ ਜਉ ਲਿਉ ਲਾਵੈ ॥
lakhimee bar siau jau liau laavai |

When someone comes to love the Lord of Lakhshmi,

ਸੋਗੁ ਮਿਟੈ ਸਭ ਹੀ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੪੩॥
sog mittai sabh hee sukh paavai |43|

his sorrow departs, and he obtains total peace. ||43||

ਖਖਾ ਖਿਰਤ ਖਪਤ ਗਏ ਕੇਤੇ ॥
khakhaa khirat khapat ge kete |

KHAKHA: Many have wasted their lives, and then perished.

ਖਿਰਤ ਖਪਤ ਅਜਹੂੰ ਨਹ ਚੇਤੇ ॥
khirat khapat ajahoon nah chete |

Wasting away, they do not remember the Lord, even now.

ਅਬ ਜਗੁ ਜਾਨਿ ਜਉ ਮਨਾ ਰਹੈ ॥
ab jag jaan jau manaa rahai |

But if someone, even now, comes to know the transitory nature of the world and restrain his mind,

ਜਹ ਕਾ ਬਿਛੁਰਾ ਤਹ ਥਿਰੁ ਲਹੈ ॥੪੪॥
jah kaa bichhuraa tah thir lahai |44|

he shall find his permanent home, from which he was separated. ||44||
