:: Holy Ginan No. 8: Pir Shams's Kesri si(n)h svaroop bhulaayo ::

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Recited by Shafiq Rawji

Eji Kesri si(n)h svaroop bhulaayo
Aja kere sange aja hoi rahyo
Ese bharam-me(n) jivanku(n) bhulaayo

Bharam sab chhodi bhai Ali Ali karna
Hay bi Ali ne hoyse bi Ali
Esa vachan tame dil maa(n)he dharna
Esa vachan tame dil maa(n)he dharna
Bharam sab chhodi bhai Ali Ali karna

O Brother The lion forgot its lionish form,
and in the company of goats it lived as a goat.
In such delusion life's purpose is forgotten.

Forsaking all delusion, brother, keep reciting the name of Ali.
'Ali is now and Ali will be' are the words you should take to heart.
Such are the words you should take to heart.
Forsaking all delusion, brother, keep reciting the name of Ali.

Eji Bharamne vaaro to si(n)h sudh hove
Aja kero bhaav so dilsu(n) khove
Ese bharam-me(n) fir nahi sove
O Brother When you dispel delusion,
you gain awareness of the Lord.
The state of being a goat is removed from your heart,
which does not sleep again in such delusion.
Forsaking all delusion,....
Eji Avidhya-maa(n) aavi padyo sab jiv
Aap pana-maa(n) khoyo haathe piv
Ochinto aavine kare re girabh
O Brother Every soul has fallen into ignorance.
In egoism the Beloved is lost.
Suddenly it (the angel of death) comes and seizes one.
Forsaking all delusion, ....
Eji Murshid kaamilko sang kariye
Aave avidhya sab jaay visariye
Tab to suje dilki gaali
O Brother Join the company of the Perfect Guide.
When He comes, all ignorance is forgotten.
Then the word of the heart is understood.
Forsaking all delusion, ....
Eji Bharamne taalo to saa(n)ine pichhaano
Aapno aap moman pichhaano
Pir Shams kahe sohi tame paalo
O Brother If you get rid of delusion,
you recognise the Lord.
A believer then recognises his own identity.
Thus says Pir Shams:
this is what you should observe.
Forsaking all delusion, ....
