Haripath – Sant Gnyaneshwar
एक तत्त्व नाम दृढ धरी मना ।
हरिसी करुणा येईल तूझी ॥ १ ॥
ते नाम सोपे रे रामकृष्ण गोविंद ।
वाचेसी सद्गद् जपे आधी ॥ २ ॥
नामापरते तत्त्व नाही रे अन्यथा ।
वाया आणिका पंथा जाशी झणी ॥ ३ ॥
ज्ञानदेवा मौन जपमाळ अंतरी ।
धरोनी श्रीहरि जपे सदा ॥ ४ ॥
O my mind, cherish the remembrance of Hari’s name and hold on to His name firmly in your mind as the only Tatva;
And Hari showers His mercy on you.
It is no great difficult chore to chant the name of the Lord;
Therefore, please chant His name with a voice that is sweet with love.
There is no other superior means than repeating His names for ones upliftment;
So why should you wander on difficult paths, forsaking the sweet path of His name?
Jnanadev says: I keep silence, and keep turning the rosary of His name within;
Thus my japa is always going on
