Sant Raidas

प्रानी किआ मेरा किआ तेरा।

तैसे तरवर पंखि बसेरा।। टेक।।

जल की भीति पवन का थंभा।  रकत बुंद का गारा।

हाड़ मास नाड़ी को पिंजरू। पंखी बसै बिचारा।।१।।

राखहु कंध उसारहु नीवां। साढ़े तीनि हाथ तेरी सीवां।।२।।

बंके बाल पाग सिर डेरी। इहु तनु होइगो भसम की ढेरी।।३।।

ऊचे मंदर सुंदर नारी। राम नाम बिनु बाजी हारी।।४।।

मेरी जाति कमीनी पांति कमीनी। ओछा जनमु हमारा।

तुम सरनागति राजा रामचंद। कहि रविदास चमारा।।५।।

 

Sant Raidas by Swami Sivananda

 

Time and again is Raidas moved by the falsehood and the transience of life as it appears to thoughtless people. "Why sleepeth?" he cries out passionately, "Wake thou, O mad man. This false life thou knoweth as true. "

 

High palace, hall and kitchens- – and then not one hour to live! This body is like a matted shutter made of grass: – When the grass has been burnt up, to dust it comes. Brother, kindred, family, and companions-all say: – "Take him out quickly! " The women of the house, who embraced thee in life, – run away crying, "Ghost! "

Says Raidas: Everyone is plundered in this world. – I have escaped saying only the Name of Rama.
