:: Holy Ginan No. 26: Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Kaachi chhe kaaya man haido chhe parmal ::

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

Recited by Alwaez Rai Mehdi Valji

Eji Kaachi chhe kaaya man haido chhe parmal
E man vartine chaalo ho jirebhai
  The physical form is raw and unstable,
and the mind and heart is fragrant(lively).
With this awareness and feeling,
conduct yourselves (in the appropriate manner),
O living brothers!
Eji Bhom joine vaadij vaavo
To vaadi tana fal paamo ho jirebhai
  By choosing a fertile field,
cultivate a garden in a complete manner.
Then due to this garden you will attain the fruits,
O living brothers!
Eji Ej vaadi Shahni sufal fale chhe
Tame aachhi karni kamaavo ho jirebhai
  Such a garden of the Lord bears the fruits of rewarding deeds.
Earn pure and good deeds(so that you may be in such a garden!),
O living brothers!
Eji Karni kamaavsho to mindar maa(n)he bes-sho
To gadh amraapuri paamo ho jirebhai
  If you earn good deeds,
you will be seated in the (eternal) home or heart (of the Lord).
Then you will attain the fortress of everlasting abode,
O living brothers!
Eji Kadve mitheki tame vigataj bujo
To vakhat vela kem chuko ho jirebhai
  Know the entire details of the sourness
and the sweetness of this wordly existence.
(After having this knowledge) how can you miss the time
(for prayers and other religious duties), O living brothers!
Eji Kaachi chhe kaaya ane juthi chhe maaya
E kaaya maaya kaam na aave ho jirebhai
  The physical form(the body) is raw and unstable
and the illusory existence is false and deceitful.
This body and the illusory existence will not be
of any use to you, o living brothers!
Eji Kaapad dhaapad chod majith
Tem Shahji-su(n) rang rangaavo ho jirebhai
  When a colour called "majith' is applied to a cloth,
it will last for ever no matter what happens to the cloth.
In the same manner apply the colour (name) of the Lord
in your heart in such a manner that it never goes away
no matter what happens, O living brothers!
Eji Kasotiye jem sovan kasiye
Tem kaaya-nu(n) hans kasaavo ho jirebhai
  In the manner in which gold is purified by going through
the process of refinement in the presence of heat,
exude (or bring out) the fragrant soul nature of your bodies
through physical mortifications, O living brothers!
Eji Paanch ratan Sahebe mustak bhaa(n)khya
Te berla bandh chalaave ho jirebhai
  The Imaam has spoken about the five jewels
(virtues viz a viz, truth, patience, forgiveness, faith and remembrance)
from his head. These release the bondages of the tied boat
(the human body) and hence enable it to sail through the ocean
of material existence swiftly, O living brothers!
Eji Anant karodiye Pir Hasan Kabirdin taarshe
Pir Hasan Kabirdin ginan kanthine sunaaya ho jirebhai
  Pir Hasan Kabirdin will save the countless crores.
Pir Hasan Kabirdin has recited having composed this "ginan",
O living brothers!

May our beloved Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) grant you, your family, your Jamat and the worldwide Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually, and may He grant you the inner vision of the Truth. Ameen.
