Saamee Raajo Aave Ja(n)gee Ddhol Vajaave - Translation A


ejee saamee raajo aave ja(n)gee ddhol vajaave
chaudeese chaa(n)ddhrudde hu-aa
re ho praannee yaa kaayam jee aaradho
alakh purakh ne ma veesaaro - shaahaa purakh ne re sambhaaro
re ho praanneeyaa kaayam jeene aaraadho......................1

When the Lord the Master will arrive, the drums of the army will beat
and all the four directions will be radiant with the Light of the Moon
(the Imaam). Oh living or animate beings, adore or worship the
everliving entity. Do not forget the perfect and indescriptible Lord.
Remember the perfect and complete Imaam (and His guidances).
Oh living or animate beings, adore or worship the everliving...

[The beating of the drums and the radiance of the moon alludes
to the very evident nature of His arrival. At a personal level,
when the Lord enters the heart of a mureed, the experience is very clear
and there is no doubt about the authenticity or the veracity of the experience.
After the experience, the life of the mureed is enlightened by the Light of faith
and is on sirat-al- mustaqueem permanently.]
