Kahore Pandito Jiv Kis Ghar Jaata - Translation

Kahore pandito jiv kis ghar jaata

1. 0 sages ! say where will the soul go ? Ism-e-Azam (the great name) continues from eternity.

2. 0 brother! the heart which is delighted with it alone knows it. How will the dumb praise sugar ?

3. .0 brother! the sukhmana vein lies between the heart and the breath. Control the heart and relate such facts of knowledge to it.

4. 0 brother! Ganga and Jamna are quickly flowing backwards, without acquiring water the heart bathes.

5. 0 brother! level both eyes and be firm in dealings, then 0 believer! contemplate upon these facts.
