and adore the name of the Imaam.
|Eji||Panj vaarta man varjine liyo
Dil Illallahsu(n) laavo
|O Brother||Avoid the five evil vices (viz. lust, anger, greed,
attachment to the illusive world and pride),
and keep the Master in your mind instead.
Then maintain the Lord in your hearts always.
|Eji||Hak sukritsu(n) miliya moman
So ta karani shudh kamaaya
|O Brother||Those momins who have through truthful good deeds,
attained (the Lord, the heavens) have indeed earned
for themselves a good hereafter.
|Eji||Saachi sukritsu(n) galiya moman
So ta nurmaa(n) nur samaaya
|O Brother||Those momins who have foregone their ego ( "I" ness) through
good deeds, have indeed earned the stage of merging into light.
|Eji||Samaaya re so ta amar huva
Saa(n)iya tejku(n) aapme(n) laadha
|O Brother||Those who have merged (into light of the Lord) have become immortal.
O saint! they have indeed found the light in themselves.
|Eji||Ab suniyo re duniya keri mahobat
Kese kaame jiv baandha
|O Brother||Listen now, for the sake of the love of the world,
(see) how you have engrossed your soul in
(these trivial worldly) activities.

So deenki raahse taliya
|O Brother||If the mind is engrossed in greed, temptations and attachment
to the illusory world, it will become remote from the path of religion.
|Eji||Manki maanetisu(n) miliya moman
So ta mohoke senme(n) jaliya

have indeed become the victims of the forces of illusion.
|Eji||Panj-tani re moman maal na deve
So umaruka jutha dhandha
|O Brother||O momins! A person who does not submit the tithe

Tame chhodo duniya-ka fanda
|O Brother||O momins! realise the fortieth part (2.5%)
as being the right of the Peer,
and abondon the entrapments of the world.
|Eji||Murshid kaamilku(n) nahi jaano momano
Tame joogmaa(n) firo jesa andha
|O Brother||O momins! the ones who do not recognise the Perfect
Master (Teacher), wander in this age (world) as blind ones.
|Eji||Pichhaano re moman apne antarsu(n)
To dil nirmal jesa chanda
|O Brother||Recognise (the Imam of the time) O momins!
from the depths of your interior,
then your hearts will become as pure as the moon.

Saa(n)iya dil maa(n)he hardam hajur
|O Brother||Follow the Master with conviction of your heart and mind,
then you will realise that the Lord is indeed
always present in your hearts.
|Eji||Pir kahet Imamdin vachan suno munivar
Bhamar gufa upar nur
|O Brother||Pir Imamdin says, "O believers! listen to my command
that the light resides in the region between the two eye brows".
