Sorat'h, First Mehl, Panch-Padhay:

You cannot save your own home from being plundered; why do you spy on the houses of others?

One who is lured by Maya loses this juice; that faithless cynic is tied to his evil-mindedness. ||3||

man kaa jeeo pavanapat dehee dehee meh deo samaagaa |

The Lord is the life of the mind, the Master of the breath of life; the Divine Lord is contained in the body.
