Snatam Kaur – Ray Man Shabad Lyrics

Ray man eh bidh jog kamaa-o

Oh my mind, practice Yoga in this way:

Singee saach akapat kanthalaa

Let Truth be your horn, sincerity your necklace,

Dhi-aan Bibhoot charaa-o

and meditation the ashes you apply on your body.

Taatee geho aatam bas kar kee

Catch your burning soul (self) and stop the flames.

Bhicchhaa naam adhaarang

Let the soul (self) be the alms bowl in which you

collect the sweet Naam and this will be the only

support you will ever need.

Baajay param taar tat har ko

The Universe plays its divine music. The sound of

reality is shrill, but this is where God is.

Upajai raag rasaarang

When you listen to the reality from this place of

awareness the sweet essence of Raag arises.

Ughatai taan tarang rang

Waves of melodies, emotions, and passions arise and

flow through you.

Gi-aan geet bandhaanang

Bind yourself with the song of God.

Chak chak rehay dayv daanav mun

The Universe spins like a potter’s wheel and from it

fly demons and angels.

Chhak chhak bayom bivaanang

The sage listens to this and instead of getting caught

in either one, the sage drinks the nectar of the

heavens and is carried to the heavens in a divine


Aatam upadays bhays sanjam ko

Instruct and clothe yourself with self control.

Meditate unto infinity

Jaap so ajapaa jaapai

until you are meditating without meditating.

Sadaa rehai kanchan see kaayaa

In this way, your body shall remain forever golden,

Kaal na kabahoo bayaapai

and death shall never approach you.
