Raidas Ke Dohe
Main Apno Man Hariju Se Joryo
Hariju Se Jori Saban So Toryo |
Sab Hi Pahar Tumhari Aasaa,
Man Kram Bachan Kahai Raidasa ||
Sant Raidas says that he has severed all links with the world. He has joined all links with Shri Hari. Now by all means he will maintain purity of mind.
Jaat Bhi Ochi, Karam Bhi Ocha,
Ocha Kisab Hamara,
Niche Se Prabhu Uncha Kiyo Hai,
Kaha Raidas Chamara ||
Don't feel sad if you are born in a lower caste. Wake-up to your relation with the God and rise to a higher level.
Prabhuji ! Tum Chandan, Hum Pani |
Jaaki Ang Ang Baas Samaani ||
Prabhuji ! Tum Ghan, Ban Hum Mora |
Jaise Chitwat Chand Chakora ||
Prabhuji ! Tum Deepak Hum Baati,
Jaaki Jyoti Barai Dini Raati ||
Prabhuji ! Tum Moti, Hum Dhaga |
Jaise Sonhe Milat Suhaga ||
Prabhuji ! Tum Swami, Hum Dasa |
Aisi Bhakti Karai Raidasa ||
O Lord, we are the water. You are the sandalwood that perfumes the water and is present equally everywhere in the water. O Lord, we are forest. You are the cloud. As a Chakora Bird is thirsty for a raindrop directly falling into its mouth from the cloud, so we are for You. O Lord, You are the light (deepak) and we are the thread(baati) that burns to sustain the ever glowing flame. O Lord, we are the thread and you are the beautiful pearls of the mala. O Lord, You are the master. We are Your servants. Let this be the way of my devotion forever.
Jo Tum Toro Ram, Mai Nahi Toro |
Tum So Tori Kavan So Joro ||
Teerath-Barat Na Karao Andesa |
Tumhare Charan Kamal Ke Bharosa ||
Jaha-Jaha Jau Tumhari Pooja |
Tumsa Dev Aur Nahi Dooja ||
O Lord Rama, You snapped relation with me. I have not. I cannot because then with whom I will join. I do not do rituals and pilgrimage because I do not know the methods and techniques. I have taken refuge at Your lotus-feet. Whatever I do, I offer to You as Your Pooja. Who else is there to take the doership of my actions.
Narhari ! Chanchal Hai Mati Meri, Kaise Bhagati Karu Mai Teri |
Tu Mohi Dekhe, Hou Tohi Dekhu, Preeti Paraspar Hoi ||
Tu Mohi Dekhe, Tohi Na Dekhu, Yah Mati Sab Budhi Khoi ||
Sab Ghat Antar Ramsi Nirantar, Mai Dekhan Nahi Jana |
Gun Sab Tor, Mor Sab Avagun, Krut Upakar Na Maanaa ||
Mai-Tai, Tori-Mori Asamjhi So, Kaise Kari Nistara |
Kah Raidas Krushna Karunamaya ! Jai Jai Jagat Adhara ||
O God NArhari ! My mind is uneasy. How should I worship You. You see me. I see You. This is how the relationship of love is built. You see me. I don't see you. This behaviour is devoid of sanity. You are all-pervading ever looking at me. I can't see You. You own all merit. I own all demerit. I don't recognise your obligation. My-Your this dilemma can be removed in what manner. O Lord Krishna You are full of pity. Victory to You, the support of this world.
