Raag Gauree, The Seven Days Of The Week Of Kabeer Jee:
Sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord each and every day.
Meeting with the Guru, you shall come to know the mystery of the Lord. ||1||Pause||
On Sunday, begin the devotional worship of the Lord,
and restrain the desires within the temple of the body.
When your attention is focused day and night upon that imperishable place,
then the celestial flutes play the unstruck melody in tranquil peace and poise. ||1||
On Monday, the Ambrosial Nectar trickles down from the moon.
Tasting it, all poisons are removed in an instant.
Restrained by Gurbani, the mind remains indoors;
drinking in this Nectar, it is intoxicated. ||2||
On Tuesday, understand reality;
you must know the way the five thieves work.
Those who leave their own home to go out wandering
shall feel the terrible wrath of the Lord, their King. ||3||
On Wednesday, one’s understanding is enlightened.
The Lord comes to dwell in the lotus of the heart.
Meeting the Guru, one comes to look alike upon pleasure and pain,
and the inverted lotus is turned upright. ||4||
On Thursday, wash off your corruption.
Forsake the trinity, and attach yourself to the One God.
At the confluence of the three rivers of knowledge, right action and devotion, there,
why not wash away your sinful mistakes? ||5||
On Friday, keep up and complete your fast;
day and night, you must fight against your own self.
If you restrain your five senses,
then you shall not cast your glance on another. ||6||
On Saturday, keep the candle of God’s Light steady within your heart
you will be enlightened, inwardly and outwardly.
All your karma will be erased. ||7||
Know that as long as you place your hopes in others,
you shall not find the Mansion of the Lord’s Presence.
When you embrace love for the Lord,
says Kabeer, then, you shall become pure in your very fiber. ||8||1||
