  • Translation:

    From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.

    Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.

    When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.

    So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.

    From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.

    O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman.

    That mouth which praises the Lord continually is blessed and beautiful.

    O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the True Lord. ||2||
