Shree Ramkabir Mandir Bhajan Mandal (Recorded on Janmashtami 2011)

ભક્તિ હિંડોળે સંત જન ઝુલે;
સતગુરુ શબ્દકા દેત જોટા, કહત સુનત હૃદયમેં ફૂલે ... ટેક
bhakti hiňdole saňt jan jhule
sat-guru shabda-kā det jotā, kahat sunat ruday-meň fule ... repeat

જ્ઞાન વૈરાગ્ય દોઉ સ્થંભ મનોહર, રામનામકી દોરી લગાઇ;
શીલ સંતોષ વિચાર વિવેક હી, દાંડી ચાર અમોલ શોહાય ... ૧
gnān vai-rāgya do-u sthambh mano-har, rām-nām-ki dori lagā-ii
shil saňtosh vichār vivek hi, dāňdi chār amol shohāy ... 1

ધીર ગંભીરકી પટુલી બિરાજે, પ્રેમપ્રીતકી ચુની જુરી હૈ;
આતમ અનુભવી જ્ઞાન પ્રકાશ, હીરા માણેક શોભા બની હૈ ... ૨
dhir gam-bhir-ki patuli birāje, prem-prit-ki chuni juri hai
ātam anu-bhavi gnān prakāsh, hirā mānek shobhā bani hai ... 2

સંત સંગત મિલી જે કોઇ ઝુલે, કામ ક્રોધ મદ લોભ નસાવે;
કહેત કબીર સોહી જન નિર્મલ, અંતકાલ પરમપદ પાવે ... ૩
saňt saňgat mili je koii jhule, kām krodh mad lobh nasāve
kahet kabir sohi jan nir-mal, aňt-kāl param-pad pāve ... 3

English Translation:
0. The spiritually inclined saintly beings, having absorbed the essence of the discourses experience great pleasure within their heart. Such blessed saints explain the divine messages delivered by enlightened angelic saints. As a matter of fact, Saint Kabir, indicates at such unique from of devotion figuratively emphasized. Considering outer saintly appearance with garlands of Basil (Tulsi) or Rudraksha, tilak or ash smeared on forehead as futile efforts to evoke spirituality and form of worship.

1. This devotional swing is suspended on the two pillars of sentience and asceticism. Such a swing rests on the structure of four bars the four bars - character, contentment, contemplation and discretion - tied with a string of recitation of the name of Rama, contemplate on worship of the Supreme Soul. In a way, adhering to these four virtues brightens up the life.

Kabirdas Ji clarifies,

"Sumiran Surat Lagaai Ke, Mukh Te Kachhu Na Bol,
Baahar Ke Pat Deike, Antar Ke Pat Khol."

"સુમિરન સુરત લગાઈ કે, મુખ તે કછુ ન બોલ,
બાહર કે પટ ખોલ કે, અંતર કે પટ ખોલ."

[A seeker needs to meditate and chant within the mind; hence, one needs turn introversive.   If the physical senses remain open to the worldliness, they might be get deviated and become wayward. Therefore, Kabir Ji, advises to open up one's conscience to enable the mind to dwell on spirituality.]

2. The swing having a swing-seat of patience is adorned with love and affection. It is embellished with bright light of spiritual knowledge that is as precious as valuable diamonds and rubies.

3. Whoever will sway on this swing in gracious company of the saintly beings shall be liberated from shortcomings or vices like passion, anger, arrogance and avarice. Saint Kabir says, if only an individual discards such demerits, can one attain sanctity and ultimately be liberated.
