  • Translation:

    If I am pleasing to him, then that is my pilgrimage and cleansing bath.

    Without pleasing him, what good are ritual cleansings?

    Gazing upon the created beings, without the karma of good actions,

    What are they given to receive?

    Within the mind are gems, jewels and rubies,

    From listening to the Guru's teachings, even once.

    The Guru has taught me one thing:

    There is only the one, the giver of all souls.

    May I never forget him!
