The wealth of God’s Name is such that fire can’t burn it, wind cannott blow it away and thieves cannot get near it;
Utajiri wa Jina la Mungu ni wa hali ya kwamba moto hauwezi kuuchoma, upepo hauwezi kuufurusha na wezi hawawezi kuukaribia;

ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਧਨੁ ਕਰਿ ਸੰਚਉਨੀ ਸੋ ਧਨੁ ਕਤ ਹੀ ਨ ਜਾਵੈ ॥੧॥
raam naam Dhan kar sanch-unee so Dhan kat hee na jaavai. ||1||

Utajiri wa Naam ni kama maji kwa akili inayochomeka katika hamu za kidunia na tegemezo kwa akili inayozurura; pia unasaidia kutamatisha uoga wa vifungo vya shaka.

ji-o kap kay kar musat chanan kee lubaDh na ti-aag da-i-o.
Just as a monkey does not let go of handful of grains and is thereby gets trapped because of its greed,
Kama vile tumbili haachilii nafaka iliyojaa mkononi mwake na kwa hiyo ananaswa kwa sababu ya tamaa yake,

ਜੋ ਜੋ ਕਰਮ ਕੀਏ ਲਾਲਚ ਸਿਉ ਤੇ ਫਿਰਿ ਗਰਹਿ ਪਰਿਓ ॥੧॥
jo jo karam kee-ay laalach si-o tay fir gareh pari-o. ||1||

ji-o udi-aan kusam parfulit kineh na gharaa-o la-i-o.
Just as no one enjoys the fragrance of flowers blooming in a jungle and the bloom of these flowers goes to waste,
Kama vile hakuna anayefurahia manukato ya maua yanayonawiri nyikani na kunawiri kwa maua haya kunaenda bure,

ਤੈਸੇ ਭ੍ਰਮਤ ਅਨੇਕ ਜੋਨਿ ਮਹਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਫਿਰਿ ਕਾਲ ਹਇਓ ॥੨॥
taisay bharmat anayk jon meh fir fir kaal ha-i-o. ||2||
similarly without meditation on God’s Name, people wander through countless births and suffer death again and again. ||2||
vivyo hivyo bila kutafakari kuhusu Jina la Mungu, watu wanazurura kupitia kuzaliwa kusiohesabika na wanateseka kifo tena na tena.

ਇਆ ਧਨ ਜੋਬਨ ਅਰੁ ਸੁਤ ਦਾਰਾ ਪੇਖਨ ਕਉ ਜੁ ਦਇਓ ॥
i-aa Dhan joban ar sut daaraa paykhan ka-o jo da-i-o.
This wealth, youth, children and spouse which God has given is just a passing show.
Utajiri, ujana, watutu na mwenzi wa ndoa ambaye Mungu amekupa ni onyesho tu linalopita.

a-oDh anal tan tin ko mandar chahu dis thaat tha-i-o.
Assume this body is like a house of straw being consumed by fire of aging; this is the scene being played out all around.
Fikiria mwili huu kama nyumba ya nyasi inayoteketezwa na moto wa kuzeeka; hili ndilo tukio linalotendeka kote.

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਭੈ ਸਾਗਰ ਤਰਨ ਕਉ ਮੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਓਟ ਲਇਓ ॥੪॥੧॥੮॥੫੯॥
kahi kabeer bhai saagar taran ka-o mai satgur ot la-i-o. ||4||1||8||59||
Kabir says, to swim across this dreadful worldly ocean of vices, I have sought the refuge of the true Guru. ||4||1||8||59||
