jitnee bhookh an ras saad hai titnee bhookh fir laagai.
The more one tastes the worldly pleasures, the more intense craving one feels for these pleasures.
Mtu anavyozidi kuonja raha za kidunia, ndivyo anavyohisi tamaa kali zaidi ya raha hizo.

That person surrenders completely to the Guru, on whom God shows mercy.
Mtu huyo anajisalimisha kikamiligu kwa Guru, ambaye Mungu anaonea huruma.

O’ Nanak, that person is satiated with the elixir of God’s Name and then the craving for worldly wealth doesn’t afflict him again. ||4||4||10||48||
Ee Nanak, mtu huyo anatoshelezwa na dawa ya Jina la Mungu na kisha tamaa ya utajiri wa kidunia haimathiri tena.

My life is engrossed in the love for wealth and woman; attachment with this worldly love seems sweet to me.
Maisha yangu yamevama katika upendo wa utajiri na mwanamke; kiambatisho kwa huu upendo wa kidunia kinaonekana kuwa tamu kwangu.

Akili yangu imeambatishwa kwa raha za kidunia na inafurahia ikitazama nyumba mzuri, majumba na farasi.

har parabh chit na aavee ki-o chhootaa mayray har raa-i-aa. ||1||
O’ my sovereign God, the thought of remembering You does not even enter my mind, I wonder how could I be liberated from these worldly attachments?||1||
Ee Mungu wangu Mwenyezi, fikira ya kukukumbuka Wewe hata haiingii akilini mwangu, nashangaa jinsi naweza kukombolewa kutoka viambatisho hivi vya kidunia?

ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਇਹ ਨੀਚ ਕਰਮ ਹਰਿ ਮੇਰੇ ॥

O’ my God, these are my sinful deeds.
Ee Mungu wangu, hivi ndivyo vitendo vyangu vyenye dhambi.

jin dee-ay so chit na aave pasoo ha-o kar jaane. ||3||
But I do not even remember the One who gave me all this, and like an animal I think that I obtained these things on my own. ||3||
Lakini hata sikumbuki yule Mmoja aliyenipa haya yote, na kama myama nadhani nilipata haya yote mimi mwenyewe.

ਸਭੁ ਕੀਤਾ ਤੇਰਾ ਵਰਤਦਾ ਤੂੰ ਅੰਤਰਜਾਮੀ ॥
sabh keetaa tayraa varatdaa tooN antarjaamee.
O’ God, whatever happens is according to Your will and You are the inner knower of hearts.
Ee Mungu, chochote kinachotendeka ni kulingana na mapenzi yako na Wewe in mjuzi wa ndani ya mioyo.
