Jo dam ghaafil so dam kaafir,
Murshid eh parhhaaiaa hoo.
Suniaa sukhan gaeeaan khul akheen,
Chit maulaa wal laaiaa hoo.
Keetee jaan havaale Rabb de,
Aisaa ishq kamaaiaa hoo.
Maran ton agge mar gae Baahoo,
Taan matalab noon paaiaa hoo.
My Master taught me a lesson:
“Any moment you are negligent in remembrance of God is a moment spent in denial of God.”
These words opened my eyes to reality,
And I fixed my attention on the Lord.
I then placed my soul in his protection-
Such was the love I cultivated in my heart.
Having thus bequeathed my soul to him, I died before death – to live in him.
Only then did I attain the goal of life, O Bahu!
