  • Complete Mantra:

    Ray man eh bidh jog kamao

    Singhee saach akapat kanthala

    Dhiaan bibhoot charhaao

    Taatee gaho aatam bas kar kee

    Bichaa naam adhaarang

    Baaje param taar tat har ko

    Upajay raag rasaarang

    Ughatay taan tarang rang atay giaan geet bandhaanang

    Chak chak rahay dayv daanav mun

    Sada rahay kanchan si kaya

    Kaal na kabahoo byaapay 

  • Translation:

    Oh my mind practice Yoga in this way:

    Let Truth be your horn, sincerity your necklace, and meditation the ashes you apply on your body.

    Catch your burning soul (self) and stop the flames.  Let the soul (self) be the alms bowl in which you collect the sweet Naam and this will be the only support you will ever need.

    The Universe plays its divine music.  The sound of reality is shrill, but this is where God is.

    When you listen to the reality from this place of awareness the sweet essence of Raag arises.

    Waves of melodies, emotions, and passions arise and flow through you.  Bind yourself with the song of God.

    The Universe spins like a potter's wheel and from it fly demons and angels.  The sage listens to this and instead of getting caught in either one, the sage drinks in the nectar of the heavens and is carried to the heavens in a divine chariot.

    Instruct and clothe yourself with self control. Meditate unto infinity until you are meditating without meditating.

    In this way, your body shall remain forever golden, and death shall never approach you.
