ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਜਨ ਭਏ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਜਿਹ ਜਾਨੀ ॥੪॥੩॥
kahu kabeer jan bhe khaalase prem bhagat jih jaanee |4|3|

Says Kabeer, those humble people become pure - they become Khalsa - who know the Lord's loving devotional worship. ||4||3||

ਘਰੁ ੨ ॥
ghar 2 |

Second House||

ਦੁਇ ਦੁਇ ਲੋਚਨ ਪੇਖਾ ॥
due due lochan pekhaa |

With both of my eyes, I look around;

ਹਉ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਅਉਰੁ ਨ ਦੇਖਾ ॥
hau har bin aaur na dekhaa |

I don't see anything except the Lord.

ਨੈਨ ਰਹੇ ਰੰਗੁ ਲਾਈ ॥
nain rahe rang laaee |

My eyes gaze lovingly upon Him,

ਅਬ ਬੇ ਗਲ ਕਹਨੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥੧॥
ab be gal kahan na jaaee |1|

and now, I cannot speak of anything else. ||1||

ਹਮਰਾ ਭਰਮੁ ਗਇਆ ਭਉ ਭਾਗਾ ॥
hamaraa bharam geaa bhau bhaagaa |

My doubts were removed, and my fear ran away,

ਜਬ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਗਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jab raam naam chit laagaa |1| rahaau |

when my consciousness became attached to the Lord's Name. ||1||Pause||

ਬਾਜੀਗਰ ਡੰਕ ਬਜਾਈ ॥
baajeegar ddank bajaaee |

When the magician beats his tambourine,

ਸਭ ਖਲਕ ਤਮਾਸੇ ਆਈ ॥
sabh khalak tamaase aaee |

everyone comes to see the show.

ਬਾਜੀਗਰ ਸ੍ਵਾਂਗੁ ਸਕੇਲਾ ॥
baajeegar svaang sakelaa |

When the magician winds up his show,

ਅਪਨੇ ਰੰਗ ਰਵੈ ਅਕੇਲਾ ॥੨॥
apane rang ravai akelaa |2|

then he enjoys its play all alone. ||2||

ਕਥਨੀ ਕਹਿ ਭਰਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥
kathanee keh bharam na jaaee |

By preaching sermons, one's doubt is not dispelled.

ਸਭ ਕਥਿ ਕਥਿ ਰਹੀ ਲੁਕਾਈ ॥
sabh kath kath rahee lukaaee |

Everyone is tired of preaching and teaching.

ਜਾ ਕਉ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਆਪਿ ਬੁਝਾਈ ॥
jaa kau guramukh aap bujhaaee |

The Lord causes the Gurmukh to understand;

ਤਾ ਕੇ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਈ ॥੩॥
taa ke hiradai rahiaa samaaee |3|

his heart remains permeated with the Lord. ||3||

ਗੁਰ ਕਿੰਚਤ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਕੀਨੀ ॥
gur kinchat kirapaa keenee |

When the Guru grants even a bit of His Grace,

ਸਭੁ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਦੇਹ ਹਰਿ ਲੀਨੀ ॥
sabh tan man deh har leenee |

one's body, mind and entire being are absorbed into the Lord.

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਾਤਾ ॥
keh kabeer rang raataa |

Says Kabeer, I am imbued with the Lord's Love;

ਮਿਲਿਓ ਜਗਜੀਵਨ ਦਾਤਾ ॥੪॥੪॥
milio jagajeevan daataa |4|4|

I have met with the Life of the world, the Great Giver. ||4||4||

ਜਾ ਕੇ ਨਿਗਮ ਦੂਧ ਕੇ ਠਾਟਾ ॥
jaa ke nigam doodh ke tthaattaa |

Let the sacred scriptures be your milk and cream,

ਸਮੁੰਦੁ ਬਿਲੋਵਨ ਕਉ ਮਾਟਾ ॥
samund bilovan kau maattaa |

and the ocean of the mind the churning vat.

ਤਾ ਕੀ ਹੋਹੁ ਬਿਲੋਵਨਹਾਰੀ ॥
taa kee hohu bilovanahaaree |

Be the butter-churner of the Lord,

ਕਿਉ ਮੇਟੈ ਗੋ ਛਾਛਿ ਤੁਹਾਰੀ ॥੧॥
kiau mettai go chhaachh tuhaaree |1|

and your buttermilk shall not be wasted. ||1||

ਚੇਰੀ ਤੂ ਰਾਮੁ ਨ ਕਰਸਿ ਭਤਾਰਾ ॥
cheree too raam na karas bhataaraa |

O soul-bride slave, why don't you take the Lord as your Husband?

ਜਗਜੀਵਨ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਅਧਾਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jagajeevan praan adhaaraa |1| rahaau |

He is the Life of the world, the Support of the breath of life. ||1||Pause||

ਤੇਰੇ ਗਲਹਿ ਤਉਕੁ ਪਗ ਬੇਰੀ ॥
tere galeh tauk pag beree |

The chain is around your neck, and the cuffs are on your feet.

ਤੂ ਘਰ ਘਰ ਰਮਈਐ ਫੇਰੀ ॥
too ghar ghar rameeai feree |

The Lord has sent you wandering around from house to house.

ਤੂ ਅਜਹੁ ਨ ਚੇਤਸਿ ਚੇਰੀ ॥
too ajahu na chetas cheree |

And still, you do not meditate on the Lord, O soul-bride, slave.

ਤੂ ਜਮਿ ਬਪੁਰੀ ਹੈ ਹੇਰੀ ॥੨॥
too jam bapuree hai heree |2|

Death is watching you, O wretched woman. ||2||

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕਰਨ ਕਰਾਵਨਹਾਰੀ ॥
prabh karan karaavanahaaree |

The Lord God is the Cause of causes.

ਕਿਆ ਚੇਰੀ ਹਾਥ ਬਿਚਾਰੀ ॥
kiaa cheree haath bichaaree |

What is in the hands of the poor soul-bride, the slave?

ਸੋਈ ਸੋਈ ਜਾਗੀ ॥
soee soee jaagee |

She awakens from her slumber,

ਜਿਤੁ ਲਾਈ ਤਿਤੁ ਲਾਗੀ ॥੩॥
jit laaee tith laagee |3|

and she becomes attached to whatever the Lord attaches her. ||3||

ਚੇਰੀ ਤੈ ਸੁਮਤਿ ਕਹਾਂ ਤੇ ਪਾਈ ॥
cheree tai sumat kahaan te paaee |

O soul-bride, slave, where did you obtain that wisdom,

ਜਾ ਤੇ ਭ੍ਰਮ ਕੀ ਲੀਕ ਮਿਟਾਈ ॥
jaa te bhram kee leek mittaaee |

by which you erased your inscription of doubt?

ਸੁ ਰਸੁ ਕਬੀਰੈ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
su ras kabeerai jaaniaa |

Kabeer has tasted that subtle essence;

ਮੇਰੋ ਗੁਰਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥੪॥੫॥
mero guraprasaad man maaniaa |4|5|

by Guru's Grace, his mind is reconciled with the Lord. ||4||5||

ਜਿਹ ਬਾਝੁ ਨ ਜੀਆ ਜਾਈ ॥
jih baajh na jeea jaaee |

Without Him, we cannot even live;

ਜਉ ਮਿਲੈ ਤ ਘਾਲ ਅਘਾਈ ॥
jau milai ta ghaal aghaaee |

when we meet Him, then our task is completed.

ਸਦ ਜੀਵਨੁ ਭਲੋ ਕਹਾਂਹੀ ॥
sad jeevan bhalo kahaanhee |

People say it is good to live forever,

ਮੂਏ ਬਿਨੁ ਜੀਵਨੁ ਨਾਹੀ ॥੧॥
mooe bin jeevan naahee |1|

but without dying, there is no life. ||1||

ਅਬ ਕਿਆ ਕਥੀਐ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਬੀਚਾਰਾ ॥
ab kiaa katheeai giaan beechaaraa |

So now, what sort wisdom should I contemplate and preach?

ਨਿਜ ਨਿਰਖਤ ਗਤ ਬਿਉਹਾਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
nij nirakhat gat biauhaaraa |1| rahaau |

As I watch, worldly things dissipate. ||1||Pause||

ਘਸਿ ਕੁੰਕਮ ਚੰਦਨੁ ਗਾਰਿਆ ॥
ghas kunkam chandan gaariaa |

Saffron is ground up, and mixed with sandalwood;

ਬਿਨੁ ਨੈਨਹੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਨਿਹਾਰਿਆ ॥
bin nainahu jagat nihaariaa |

without eyes, the world is seen.

ਪੂਤਿ ਪਿਤਾ ਇਕੁ ਜਾਇਆ ॥
poot pitaa ik jaaeaa |

The son has given birth to his father;

ਬਿਨੁ ਠਾਹਰ ਨਗਰੁ ਬਸਾਇਆ ॥੨॥
bin tthaahar nagar basaaeaa |2|

without a place, the city has been established. ||2||

ਜਾਚਕ ਜਨ ਦਾਤਾ ਪਾਇਆ ॥
jaachak jan daataa paaeaa |

The humble beggar has found the Great Giver,

ਸੋ ਦੀਆ ਨ ਜਾਈ ਖਾਇਆ ॥
so deea na jaaee khaaeaa |

but he is unable to eat what he has been given.

ਛੋਡਿਆ ਜਾਇ ਨ ਮੂਕਾ ॥
chhoddiaa jaae na mookaa |

He cannot leave it alone, but it is never exhausted.

ਅਉਰਨ ਪਹਿ ਜਾਨਾ ਚੂਕਾ ॥੩॥
aauran peh jaanaa chookaa |3|

He shall not go to beg from others any longer. ||3||

ਜੋ ਜੀਵਨ ਮਰਨਾ ਜਾਨੈ ॥
jo jeevan maranaa jaanai |

Those select few, who know how to die while yet alive,

ਸੋ ਪੰਚ ਸੈਲ ਸੁਖ ਮਾਨੈ ॥
so panch sail sukh maanai |

Enjoy great peace.

ਕਬੀਰੈ ਸੋ ਧਨੁ ਪਾਇਆ ॥
kabeerai so dhan paaeaa |

Kabeer has found that wealth;

ਹਰਿ ਭੇਟਤ ਆਪੁ ਮਿਟਾਇਆ ॥੪॥੬॥
har bhettat aap mittaaeaa |4|6|

meeting with the Lord, he has erased his self-conceit. ||4||6||

ਕਿਆ ਪੜੀਐ ਕਿਆ ਗੁਨੀਐ ॥
kiaa parreeai kiaa guneeai |

What use is it to read, and what use is it to study?

ਕਿਆ ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਨਾਂ ਸੁਨੀਐ ॥
kiaa bed puraanaan suneeai |

What use is it to listen to the Vedas and the Puraanas?

ਪੜੇ ਸੁਨੇ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਈ ॥
parre sune kiaa hoee |

What use is reading and listening,

ਜਉ ਸਹਜ ਨ ਮਿਲਿਓ ਸੋਈ ॥੧॥
jau sahaj na milio soee |1|

if celestial peace is not attained? ||1||

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਜਪਸਿ ਗਵਾਰਾ ॥
har kaa naam na japas gavaaraa |

The fool does not chant the Name of the Lord.

ਕਿਆ ਸੋਚਹਿ ਬਾਰੰ ਬਾਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
kiaa socheh baaran baaraa |1| rahaau |

So what does he think of, over and over again? ||1||Pause||

ਅੰਧਿਆਰੇ ਦੀਪਕੁ ਚਹੀਐ ॥
andhiaare deepak chaheeai |

In the darkness, we need a lamp
