1377 : 1
He obtains the treasure of liberation, and the difficult road to the Lord is not blocked. ||231||
1377 : 2
Kabeer, whether is is for an hour, half an hour, or half of that,
1377 : 3
whatever it is, it is worthwhile to speak with the Holy. ||232||
1377 : 4
Kabeer, those mortals who consume marijuana, fish and wine
1377 : 5
- no matter what pilgrimages, fasts and rituals they follow, they will all go to hell. ||233||
1377 : 6
Kabeer, I keep my eyes lowered, and enshrine my Friend within my heart.
1377 : 7
I enjoy all pleasures with my Beloved, but I do not let anyone else know. ||234||
1377 : 8
Twenty-four hours a day, every hour, my soul continues to look to You, O Lord.
1377 : 9
Why should I keep my eyes lowered? I see my Beloved in every heart. ||235||
1377 : 10
Listen, O my companions: my soul dwells in my Beloved, and my Beloved dwells in my soul.
1377 : 11
I realize that there is no difference between my soul and my Beloved; I cannot tell whether my soul or my Beloved dwells in my heart. ||236||
1377 : 12
Kabeer, the Brahmin may be the guru of the world, but he is not the Guru of the devotees.
1377 : 13
He rots and dies in the perplexities of the four Vedas. ||237||
1377 : 14
The Lord is like sugar, scattered in the sand; the elephant cannot pick it up.
1377 : 15
Says Kabeer, the Guru has given me this sublime understanding: become an ant, and feed on it. ||238||
1377 : 16
Kabeer, if you desire to play the game of love with the Lord, then cut off your head, and make it into a ball.
1377 : 17
Lose yourself in the play of it, and then whatever will be, will be. ||239||
1377 : 18
Kabeer, if you desire to play the game of love with the Lord, play it with someone with committment.
1377 : 19
Pressing the unripe mustard seeds produces neither oil nor flour. ||240||
1377 : 20
Searching, the mortal stumbles like a blind person, and does not recognize the Saint.
1377 : 21
Says Naam Dayv, how can one obtain the Lord God, without His devotee? ||241||
1377 : 22
Forsaking the Diamond of the Lord, the mortals put their hopes in another.
1377 : 23
Those people shall go to hell; Ravi Daas speaks the Truth. ||242||
1377 : 24
Kabeer, if you live the householder's life, then practice righteousness; otherwise, you might as well retire from the world.
1377 : 25
If someone renounces the world, and then gets involved in worldly entanglements, he shall suffer terrible misfortune. ||243||

Shaloks Of Shaykh Fareed Jee:
1377 : 27
One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:
1377 : 28
The day of the bride's wedding is pre-ordained.
1377 : 29
On that day, the Messenger of Death, of whom she had only heard, comes and shows its face.
1377 : 30
It breaks the bones of the body and pulls the helpless soul out.
1377 : 31
That pre-ordained time of marriage cannot be avoided. Explain this to your soul.
1377 : 32
The soul is the bride, and death is the groom. He will marry her and take her away.
1377 : 33
After the body sends her away with its own hands, whose neck will it embrace?
1377 : 34
The bridge to hell is narrower than a hair; haven't you heard of it with your ears?
1377 : 35
Fareed, the call has come; be careful now - don't let yourself be robbed. ||1||
1377 : 36
Fareed, it is so difficult to become a humble Saint at the Lord's Door.
