ਇਕ ਬਸਤੁ ਅਗੋਚਰ ਲਹੀਐ ॥
eik basat agochar laheeai |

to find the incomprehensible thing.

ਬਸਤੁ ਅਗੋਚਰ ਪਾਈ ॥
basat agochar paaee |

I have found this incomprehensible thing;

ਘਟਿ ਦੀਪਕੁ ਰਹਿਆ ਸਮਾਈ ॥੨॥
ghatt deepak rahiaa samaaee |2|

my mind is illuminated and enlightened. ||2||

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਅਬ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
keh kabeer ab jaaniaa |

Says Kabeer, now I know Him;

ਜਬ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਤਉ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥
jab jaaniaa tau man maaniaa |

since I know Him, my mind is pleased and appeased.

ਮਨ ਮਾਨੇ ਲੋਗੁ ਨ ਪਤੀਜੈ ॥
man maane log na pateejai |

My mind is pleased and appeased, and yet, people do not believe it.

ਨ ਪਤੀਜੈ ਤਉ ਕਿਆ ਕੀਜੈ ॥੩॥੭॥
n pateejai tau kiaa keejai |3|7|

They do not believe it, so what can I do? ||3||7||

ਹ੍ਰਿਦੈ ਕਪਟੁ ਮੁਖ ਗਿਆਨੀ ॥
hridai kapatt mukh giaanee |

In his heart there is deception, and yet in his mouth are words of wisdom.

ਝੂਠੇ ਕਹਾ ਬਿਲੋਵਸਿ ਪਾਨੀ ॥੧॥
jhootthe kahaa bilovas paanee |1|

You are false - why are you churning water? ||1||

ਕਾਂਇਆ ਮਾਂਜਸਿ ਕਉਨ ਗੁਨਾਂ ॥
kaaneaa maanjas kaun gunaan |

Why do you bother to wash your body?

ਜਉ ਘਟ ਭੀਤਰਿ ਹੈ ਮਲਨਾਂ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jau ghatt bheetar hai malanaan |1| rahaau |

Your heart is still full of filth. ||1||Pause||

ਲਉਕੀ ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਨੑਾਈ ॥
laukee atthasatth teerath naaee |

The gourd may be washed at the sixty-eight sacred shrines,

ਕਉਰਾਪਨੁ ਤਊ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥੨॥
kauraapan taoo na jaaee |2|

but even then, its bitterness is not removed. ||2||

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਬੀਚਾਰੀ ॥
keh kabeer beechaaree |

Says Kabeer after deep contemplation,

ਭਵ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਤਾਰਿ ਮੁਰਾਰੀ ॥੩॥੮॥
bhav saagar taar muraaree |3|8|

please help me cross over the terrifying world-ocean, O Lord, O Destroyer of ego. ||3||8||

ਸੋਰਠਿ ॥
soratth |

Sorat'h:

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥
ik oankaar satigur prasaad |

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

ਬਹੁ ਪਰਪੰਚ ਕਰਿ ਪਰ ਧਨੁ ਲਿਆਵੈ ॥
bahu parapanch kar par dhan liaavai |

Practicing great hypocrisy, he acquires the wealth of others.

ਸੁਤ ਦਾਰਾ ਪਹਿ ਆਨਿ ਲੁਟਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
sut daaraa peh aan luttaavai |1|

Returning home, he squanders it on his wife and children. ||1||

ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਭੂਲੇ ਕਪਟੁ ਨ ਕੀਜੈ ॥
man mere bhoole kapatt na keejai |

O my mind, do not practice deception, even inadvertently.

ਅੰਤਿ ਨਿਬੇਰਾ ਤੇਰੇ ਜੀਅ ਪਹਿ ਲੀਜੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
ant niberaa tere jeea peh leejai |1| rahaau |

In the end, your own soul shall have to answer for its account. ||1||Pause||

ਛਿਨੁ ਛਿਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਛੀਜੈ ਜਰਾ ਜਨਾਵੈ ॥
chhin chhin tan chheejai jaraa janaavai |

Moment by moment, the body is wearing away, and old age is asserting itself.

ਤਬ ਤੇਰੀ ਓਕ ਕੋਈ ਪਾਨੀਓ ਨ ਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥
tab teree ok koee paaneeo na paavai |2|

And then, when you are old, no one shall pour water into your cup. ||2||

ਕਹਤੁ ਕਬੀਰੁ ਕੋਈ ਨਹੀ ਤੇਰਾ ॥
kahat kabeer koee nahee teraa |

Says Kabeer, no one belongs to you.

ਹਿਰਦੈ ਰਾਮੁ ਕੀ ਨ ਜਪਹਿ ਸਵੇਰਾ ॥੩॥੯॥
hiradai raam kee na japeh saveraa |3|9|

Why not chant the Lord's Name in your heart, when you are still young? ||3||9||

ਸੰਤਹੁ ਮਨ ਪਵਨੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਬਨਿਆ ॥
santahu man pavanai sukh baniaa |

O Saints, my windy mind has now become peaceful and still.

ਕਿਛੁ ਜੋਗੁ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਗਨਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
kichh jog paraapat ganiaa | rahaau |

It seems that I have learned something of the science of Yoga. ||Pause||

ਗੁਰਿ ਦਿਖਲਾਈ ਮੋਰੀ ॥
gur dikhalaaee moree |

The Guru has shown me the hole,

ਜਿਤੁ ਮਿਰਗ ਪੜਤ ਹੈ ਚੋਰੀ ॥
jit mirag parrat hai choree |

through which the deer carefully enters.

ਮੂੰਦਿ ਲੀਏ ਦਰਵਾਜੇ ॥
moond lee daravaaje |

I have now closed off the doors,

ਬਾਜੀਅਲੇ ਅਨਹਦ ਬਾਜੇ ॥੧॥
baajeeale anahad baaje |1|

and the unstruck celestial sound current resounds. ||1||

ਕੁੰਭ ਕਮਲੁ ਜਲਿ ਭਰਿਆ ॥
kunbh kamal jal bhariaa |

The pitcher of my heart-lotus is filled with water;

ਜਲੁ ਮੇਟਿਆ ਊਭਾ ਕਰਿਆ ॥
jal mettiaa aoobhaa kariaa |

I have spilled out the water, and set it upright.

ਕਹੁ ਕਬੀਰ ਜਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥
kahu kabeer jan jaaniaa |

Says Kabeer, the Lord's humble servant, this I know.

ਜਉ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਤਉ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥੨॥੧੦॥
jau jaaniaa tau man maaniaa |2|10|

Now that I know this, my mind is pleased and appeased. ||2||10||

O Lord, how can I be with You?

ਆਪਿ ਨ ਦੇਹੁ ਤ ਲੇਵਉ ਮੰਗੇ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

If You do not give me Yourself, then I shall beg until I get You. ||Pause||

Your Name is the only ornament I wish for.

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ॥

Says Kabeer, my mind is pleased and appeased;

ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨਿਆ ਤਉ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਨਿਆ ॥੪॥੧੧॥
man maaniaa tau har jaaniaa |4|11|

now that my mind is pleased and appeased, I have come to know the Lord. ||4||11||

ਰਾਗੁ ਸੋਰਠਿ ਬਾਣੀ ਭਗਤ ਨਾਮਦੇ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਘਰੁ ੨ ॥
