Buddh Awtar - Translation

trans_of: 
Boudh Awtar

1. The Ninth Divine Manifestation was Budh
He appeared in the guise of a Moghol

2. Know that with His ugly face and deformed legs
The Diwan (guest) was sandalled

3. He was equipped with a knife, a dagger, a sword
A bow and an arrow ready to be used

4. His body was purulent and leprous
Nobody would come near Him

5. A nauseating smell was emanating from His body
Such was the form under which God appeared

6. Such was the body in which the Miracle Accomplisher (1) decided to reveal Himself
He had come to (meet) the Pandaw

7. (At the place) where the Pandaw are accomplishing their religious ceremonies (Hom Jagan)
The Brahmins, seated, are reciting the Vedas.

8. At that moment started the Kaljug, and the Duapurjug ended
The angels as well as the faithful deserted this world.

9. Since the Kaljug would be containing too many sins
The angels preferred to leave.

10. Then Jujeshtan, reflecting,
Asked the meaning of the Vedas.

11. Listen, Brahmins, said Jujeshtan,
The sin of having killed the Kawraw is upon me

12. 3,240,000 people were killed
And upon me rests this sin

13. Listen, Brahmins, I have a question:
What is the punishment for this sin?

14. The Brahmins answered: Listen, O King,
You have to accomplish the Hom Jagan ceremonies

15. Invite 1,000 Brahmins, O King,
Give them food respectfully in accordance with their wishes

16. Kind-heartedly use 1,000 gold cutlery
Carefully celebrate this Jagan

17. Such are the words uttered by the Brahmins:
"In this way this sin will be forgiven".

18. Taking the Brahmins'advice, the Pandaw were led astray
And they celebrated the Hom Jagan.

19. The Brahmins added these words:
Listen, Jujeshtan, and think about it

20. A damned one will come to this place
And will make trouble

21. He will be opposed to the Jagan
And will give arguments

22. Put a guard at the main door
Nobody should get in, whether he is good or bad.

23. Bhimsen was chosen to mount the guard
The one whose cart was huge, was placed outside

24. (At the place) where the Pandaw were seated for the Hom Jagan
The Brahmins, seated, recited the Vedas

25. (Of the noisy place) where the Brahmins were reciting the Vedas
Shri Budh came to the door

26. At the door, Bhim was seated, with confidence
Budh Awatar looks at Bhim with surprise

27. The Lord had taken such a repulsive form
That one could not look straight in His Face

28. Then Shri Budh said: Listen, King Bhim,
Let Me get in

29. I am hungry, I am starving
This is the state in which I have come to meet King Jujeshtan

30. Let Me ask for food and see what's happening
And watch the results of the Hom Jagan ceremonies

31. Listen, damned, said Bhim
It is forbidden to get in

32. (At the place) where Jujeshtan is accomplishing the Jagan ceremonies
The Brahmins are reciting the Vedas

33. If you get in, it would be a sacrilege to the Jagan ceremonies
Nobody will want to see your face, damned

34. The Brahmins are reading our Vedas
And your ugliness will cause harm

35. Then Shri Budh said:
Let Me tell you what is a damned.

36. The Divine aspect has left the Brahmins
And has taken the form of Prophet Muhammad.

37. Those who pretend understanding the Vedas which make no more sense
Those ones indeed are damned, be well assured, O Bhim

38. The Brahmins recite the meaningless Vedas
They have no knowledge of the Divine Manifestation

39. Those who do not know the Fourth Veda
Those ones are the damned ones, you may as well know, O Bhim

40. It is the temptation caused by the underlying interest that makes them recite the Name of God
And this is an insult to the Manifestation of God

41. Of the present Divine Manifestation
The Brahmins have no knowledge

42. To their own interest, they speak lies
They have no conscience of the soul's salvation

43. They accomplish false Jagan ceremonies
Their greediness prevents them from awareness

44. Bhim, there is no Knowledge without Truth
Such are the damned ones, you should know, O Bhim

45. The Brahmins have knowledge of the three Vedas
Of the fourth, they have no knowledge

46. Those who have no knowledge of the fourth Veda
Those ones, Bhim, are damned.

47. During the Duapurjug, three Vedas have gone away
Eight Manifestations of God have come to an end

48. Today, I have come in My Ninth Manifestation
But the Brahmins care little

49. The damned Brahmins are great ignorants
They trample the Name of the Manifestation of Budh

50. Listen to Me, O Bhim
I am asking for food, I am starving

51. Be charitable to My weak body
And you will be rewarded for it

52. Then Bhim, pensive, looked at Him
(and said to himself:) He seems to be the Divine Manifestation

53. I can perceive a certain form
His words seem to come from Paradise

54. Listen, O Creator, said Bhim
In my heart also lies a word of truth

55. Who, from the military class, is damned?
Tell it to me.

56. Then Shri Budh explained:
Let Me tell you about the damned ones.

57. (Are damned) the pitiless military and financiers
Who make war, who kill

58. Who separate the calf from the cow during suckling period
Who confiscate mortgage

59. Under their respectful exterior lie proud hearts
They have no scruples to kill

60. The military and financiers who are mistaken
Those ones are damned, be well assured, Bhim.

61. The financiers hide their pride
And have no scruples to alter the scale

62. When comes time for buying, they charge more
When selling, they give less

63. They are vain and boasting
It is a sin to falsify weights and measures (2)

64. They laugh at Mercy and religious precepts
Consider them as damned, O Bhim.

65. Bhim said: Tell me, O Merciful Creator,
Who is damned amongst human beings?

66. Relieve me from my doubts, O Merciful,
And tell me how one becomes damned.

67. Listen Bhim, said Shri Budh,
Here is the explanation of who is damned

84. Bhim then says: Listen, O Merciful Creator,

Who amongst the winged animals is damned?

86. Shri Budh said: Listen, O Bhim,

101. Listen, Creator of Cycles (Jugesar), says Bhim,

162. Shri Budh went on talking openly:
Listen, Bhim, let Me tell you something

163. Go and tell King Jujeshtan
That I have come in order to be recognized

164. I speak Truth.
Because even though you celebrate Jagans, your sins will not be forgiven

165. If you come and have My Didars
You will reap the fruits of infinite Jagans

166. Tell this to King Jujeshtan immediately (15)
Otherwise he will regret it

167. Then Bhim looked worried:
He seems to be The Lord of the Three Worlds (16)

168. The Creator has always worried about the Pandaw family(17)
This is why He has come to us.

169. Listen, Creator of the Cycles,
Wait here a moment

170. I am going to give the news to King Jujeshtan
I will give him Your message and I will be back, O Lord

171. Bhim went away and it took him a while
He discussed with the King

172. At the place where the four brothers were seated
Bhim was giving the news

173. Listen, O King, I tell you what I think
A man has come to our door

174. There is a certain resemblance
He speaks the words of Paradise

175. He speaks of the 14 worlds (18)
And He seems to be a wise man

176. He told me a lot of things
But, in fact, I could not reply to Him

177. Here is the message for you, O King:
Even if you celebrate Jagan, you will not be forgiven

178. Today is the reign of the Athar Veda
Brahmins have forgotten the 18 races (19)

179. Budh Awatar is Merciful
But the Brahmins call Him "Damned"

180. He who does not know the Divine Manifestation, O King
Is to be called "Damned".

181. When this message was given
King Jujeshtan started thinking.

182. King Jujeshtan inquired:
Sohodev, tell me who is this Manifestation

183. Then Sohodev, studying the stars, says:
Shri Karsan (Krishna) has taken the form of Budh

184. Sohodev then says: Listen to Him, O King,
Otherwise you will strongly regret it

185. Leave this Jagan, go and meet The Lord
This opportunity will never come again if you keep sitting here

186. Sohodev said that the Brahmins have mistaken
They do not know about the Message of God

187. They greedily read the meaningless Vedas
They reject the Divine Manifestation

188. When the Pandaw were on their way to leave
The Brahmins started thinking

189. Listen, O King, said the Brahmins
How would you see this Damned One's face?

190. We Brahmins are great priests, O King
Kneel down at our feet.

191. Then Sohodev said:
Listen, O King, think about it

192. If you listen to the Brahmins
You will not meet The Lord

193. He who created the earth and the sky
Who created air and water

194. Who created the moon and the sun
Who created the 4 kingdoms (20)

195. Who created 8 kinds of mountains
Who created limitless stars

196. He created 18 Bhar (21)
And 9 reigns of snakes

197. He created 7 oceans
He created 999 rivers

198. He made all the creation appear in the twinkling of an eye
That Lord is waiting at our door.

199. When Sohodev finishing uttering such words
King Jujeshtan understood them.

200. If you listen to the Brahmins
You will regret it day and night.

201. Then the five brothers went to meet
Shri Budh who was waiting

202. (As) the King was going to Shri Budh
The Brahmins sent him a warning

203. Listen to what we say, O King
Raise 7 black curtains

204. Get some holy water from the Ganges
And sprinkle the soil

205. Do such things
Then you can go and meet the "untouchable" (22)

206. Then the King listened to the Brahmins
He raised seven black curtains

207. As they were raising the curtains
The curtains fell down by the power of God's glance

208. When King Jujeshtan sprinkled the Ganges water on the soil
At that moment Shri Budh pronounced words of truth:

209. Listen to Me, O King
Why did you raise the seven curtains?

210. Why do you sprinkle the ground with Ganges water?
Why do you let yourselves invaded by doubt?

211. Why did you listen to the Brahmins?
Why create doubt in your hearts?

212. If you submit yourselves to Me with pure hearts
Your sins will be forgiven

213. If you have My Didars
You will reap the fruits of infinite Jagans

214. If you come to Me with confidence
Then, at each step, you will get the benefit of 10,000,000 Jagans.

215. Then Jujeshtan, his head down, said:
Lord, the sins of Kurshetra (23) rest upon us

216. We are full of sins
How can we suddenly have Holy Vision (Didar)?

217. Such has been our thinking
For this reason we have raised the seven curtains

218. All five of us brothers are sinful
And for this reason we have sprinkled the soil.

219. Then they untied the curtains and walked to The Lord
Seeing The Lord, they kneeled down at His feet

220. They prostrated before The Lord
And then King Jujeshtan implored.

221. Mother Kunta (24) welcomed The Lord
King Jujeshtan kissed His feet

222. Then the five Pandaw offered their joint hands in prayer
And there, Bhim remained under the protection of God.

223. Blessed was our family
When we saw the Master of Paradise

224. Today, our worries are gone
When we were blessed by God's Vision

225. May You be blessed, O Merciful
You have saved your followers

226. The great Brahmin priests have remained in the error
They made us celebrate Jagans

227. You have been Merciful to the Pandaw's family
You are Clement and Merciful

228. We are Your followers, we are sinners
You are The One Who forgives.

229. Then Shri Budh replied immediately:
Listen, O King, let Me tell you one thing:

230. The Kaljug is commencing and the Athar Veda is coming
The six Darshans (25) are cancelled

231. Then the King says: Lord, let me ask one question
Today, in the Kaljug, who is a Brahmin and who is a Jogi?

232. Then Shri Budh replied at once:
Let Me tell you about the Brahmin and the Jogi

233. A Brahmin is he who knows the spiritual
Who acts upon the spiritual

234. The Brahmin has to have knowledge
Of the present Divine Manifestation

235. The Jogi is he who understands the Knowledge
Who reaches salvation through Ginans and Religion

236. The truthful Jogi who does good deeds
Who pays Dassond honestly to the Master of Truth

237. Who accepts the Present Divine Manifestation
This Jogi is worthy of this Jug.

238. Then The Lords says: Listen, O King Dharam (26)
I am Myself the Jogi and I am Myself the Knowledge.

239. He who, today, will do good deeds
Who will know God, that Jogi is the Knowledge.

240. Then King Jujeshtan implored:
Lord, how can we reach salvation?

241. Then Shri Budh replied immediately:
Listen to My words, O King

242. The Kaljug has just begun and the Duapurjug is over
The angels and the believers are hidden (27)

243. Listen, O King Jujeshtan
You cannot tolerate living in the Cycle of Evil (Kaljug).

244. When you were fighting in the region of Kurukshetra
You killed 18 Khonr (3.240.000) (28) brothers during that battle

245. There, the angels and the demons were killed
And upon you, O King, rests this sin

246. Today you have to pay for it
Or else, on the Day of Judgment, you will suffer, O King

247. Then the five Pandaw have much implored
We will follow Your instructions, O Master.

248. Then Shri Budh spoke:
Go and bury yourselves in The Himalayas

249. If, today, you go and die in The Himalayas,
Then you will go to Paradise.

250. Then Bhim replied immediately:
Why didn't You say this earlier, O Merciful?

251. We have killed our brothers and taken the kingdom
Then why has the Cycle of Evil arrived today?

252. If we had known this earlier
Then we would have not held any battle in Kurukshetra

253. Then the King said: Listen, O King Bhim
How would something that is written by God not happen?

254. Do as God says
Keep the words of God in mind.

255. King Jujeshtan asked:
Who will tell us about the Cycle of Evil?

256. What is going to happen in the Kaljug?
Tell it to us, O Lord.

257. Then Shri Budh replied immediately:
Let Me tell you about the Kaljug.

258. During the Kaljug, the Spirit will be unstable
There will be 97.5% (29) of sins

259. There will be only 2.5% (30) of good
That bad will be the trade during Kaljug.

260. Then King Jujeshtan asked for explanations:
Lord, how will the world function during Kaljug?

261. How will be the kings and ministers?
How will be the subjects?

262. How will be the priests reciting the holy books?
How will be the idols?

263. How will be the warriors fighting on the battlefields?
How will be the opposing warriors?

264. How will be the good people and the believers?
How will be the generous ones?

265. What will the rain be like during Kaljug?
How will the earth behave?

266. Then Shri Budh replied immediately:
Listen, King, I will tell you something:

267. Il will rain little during Kaljug
And the earth will bear little fruit

268. Stingy kings and dishonest ministers
All subjects will be deceitful

269. And there, some stingy priests will recite the Puranr
And there, some dishonest idols will be deaf

270. Out of 1,000 people, one only will fight on the battlefield
Out of 1,000 warriors, one only will go and meet him

271. Out of one million people, one only will be faithful
Out of one hundred thousand, one man only will be generous.

272. Then King Jujeshtan at once replied:
Listen, Shri Budh, I have a question:

273. During the Cycle of Evil, which will be the true place of pilgrimage?
What generosity will be legitimate?

274. What will be the fast during Kaljug?
Which will be the Day of prayer?

275. How will the religion be during Kaljug?
Where will we go to have our sins and bad deeds forgiven?

276. What will be the reward for a donation?
Where shall we go for immediate salvation?

277. What kind of people will make donations during Kaljug?
And what kind of true people will receive donations during Kaljug?

278. Then Shri Budh replied at once:
Listen, O King, I will tell you one thing.

279. Pilgrimage (will be done) to Jamatkhana during Kaljug, you should know
Make donation (31) to the Master of Truth (Satgoor)

280. Fast will be on the Friday of new moon (32)
Prayer will be said, looking West

281. Donation in the form of pity will be rewarded
Do good deeds and listen to The Essence

282. He who's deeds will be pure during Kaljug
He who takes Truth from the Master of Truth (Satgoor)

283. Where there will be tolerance, faith will increase;
If you have anger, faith will leave and you will have sinned.

284. Today, God manifested Himself in Jampudip (33)
Sins will be forgiven by going to Jamatkhana.

285. Then Shri Budh said:
Listen, O King, I am telling you about the Kaljug.

286. From the four jugs, Kaljug is different
Sins and good deeds are differenciated

287. Both the sinner and the honest one will be judged
The sinner will be drowned and the honest one will be saved.

288. During the first Kartajug, there had been good deeds
Listen to their accounts, O King:

289. He who was charitable one thousand times
Was rewarded once.

290. Today, in the Kaljug, he who gives once
Is rewarded 125,000 times.

291. Thanks to the practice of this charity during Kaljug
An infinite number of souls will reach salvation.

292. The Athar Veda will be reigning over the Kaljug
But nobody will rely on It.

293. There will be many sins in the Kaljug
Only the truthful will be saved.

294. Hard will it be to do charity and difficult will be the relations
Difficult will be the kings, the subjects and the world.

295. Listen, Jujeshtan, let Me tell you this:
I, personally, will be hidden during Kaljug.

296. Then Jujeshtan asked:
How can the world survive without You?

297. If You are not present in the world, O Jaduraï (34)
Then the world will perish

298. Listen to my prayer, O Merciful
Tell us where You will be living.

299. Since you ask Me, O King Jujeshtan,
I will tell you were I will be living:

300. During Kaljug, I will be living
In the hearts of My believers.

301. Just as there is life in the heart
The Lord of three worlds is omnipresent too.

302. Just as there is life in the blood
I shall be in every heart too.

303. Where the Jamat, together, will remember God
And together will recite the Knowledge (Ginan) of God

304. He who will stay committed to the Knowledge of faith
In his heart will be My home.

305. He who will have pity
He who will respect the 40 kiriyas (35)

306. He who does not laze about doing good deeds
In his heart will be Our home, be well assured

307. He who keeps his knowledge in the presence of the Master
He who confides his sorrows and his joys to God

308. He who is the most content and tolerant
In his heart will be Our home

309. He who struggles in this world
In his heart lives God

310. He who devotes himself to the Knowledge (Ginan)
In his heart is Our home

311. He who walks with humility
In his heart is Our home

312. He who constantly thinks of Knowledge (Ginan)
In his home We have great presence.

313. Listen, King Jujeshtan, I am telling you
During Kaljug, I will stay hidden.

314. Then King Jujeshtan spoke in turn:
Where will You manifest Yourself, O Merciful?

315. And King Jujeshtan repeated:
Tell us the address of Master Lord (36)

316. Then Shri Budh at once replied:
Listen to My words, O King

317. In the Indian sub-continent (Jampudip), the continent of Bharat, you should know
In Kahek (37) I shall be

318. Gur Bhirma will be there present
His Name will be Pir Sadardin

319. (In) the Setar (38) sub-continent, the continent of Irak
The country of Daylam, I shall be

320. The Lord will live in that country
(In a) human body and dressed like human being

321. Thus He disclosed the house of God
Then King Jujeshtan paid Him his respect.

322. While they were talking to Shri Budh
There came Mother Kunta (39) indeed

323. She had brought a food dish
The Pandaw said: Give food to The Merciful

324. Then Shri Budh replied immediately:
Listen to this first (Pratham) thing, Pandaw

325. Have dinner with Me
And your sins will go away

326. Then the five Pandaw had dinner with The Lord
Then Shri Budh's bell was heard ringing in the Heaven

327. Then Shri Budh said: Listen, King Dharam (40)
Today, your Jagan (sacrifice) has been accepted.

328. Then King Jujeshtan said: Blessed is this day
When, seeing You, we have reaped the fruit of 10 millions of Jagans

329. O Lord, today, our sins are forgiven
When we received Your Holy Didars

330. When the Pandaw had dinner with The Lord
People blamed them

331. Then Shri Budh said: Listen, King Pandaw,
Sacrifice the holy cow to end this Jagan (41)

332. Today, all your sins are forgiven
Thus spake The Lord.

333. Then the Pandaw brothers had confidence
We shall do as You say

334. Then Shri Budh did a miracle
The Pandaw accept it upon them

335. Then a cow came down from the sky
And Shri Budh said verily:

336. Cut the head (of the cow) and pull it off
Pull off (42) the four limbs

337. They pulled off the skin
Then Shri Budh ordered

338. Then Mata Kunta (43) took the skin
King Jujeshtan took the head

339. The four brothers took the four limbs
And carrying it in their hands, they went towards Hasnapuri

340. A river of blood was pouring
And while pouring, the blood was changing into countless pearls

341. Every man and woman picked them up
Then a big rumour was spread in town

342. That the five Pandaw had committed a big sin
They had killed the cow and were converted

343. Then people slandered them
And at once the (Pandaw's) sins were pardoned (44)

344. As soon as they abandoned the town and came out of it
The five pious Pandaw reached Paradise

345. The Lord was happy
And there His desire came true

346. Then they wore the crown of weal encrusted with emeralds
The beauty of which was comparable to the moon's

347. Mother Kunta (45) received a robe of thousands of qualities
And solemnly wore the holy dress

348. At here neck, a necklace of emeralds
At her feet, pearls and diamonds (were) sparkling

349. At her arms, bangles of emeralds;
Their brilliance was limitless.

350. The Pandaw brothers, with God's blessings, went away
They went to Hastinapur

351. The people of the town welcomed them
Long live the Pandaw family

352. All the people had gathered
At the place where the cow was sacrificed

353. Some of them found the leather, some found the tail
And some others laid hands on horns

354. The Brahmins' daughters, and some sailors also came
They laid their hands on cow dung

355. And thus came to an end
The belief in the sacred cow

356. Then the Pandaw reached home
They paid their respects to The Lord Narayanr

357. Then Shri Budh spake on this wise:
Go and perish in The Himalayas

358. Then King Jujeshtan much implored:
At the Day of Judgment, O Master, don't forget us.

359. Listen King, I say to you
I, personally, shall stay with you

360. O King, be convinced in your heart
Whenever you will remember Me, I shall be there.

361. Such were the supplications of the Pandaw to Shri Budh
And thus, they went home.

362. Then Shri Budh disappeared.
The Pandaw got up and went to The Himalayas

363. When God took leave of the Pandaw
The 68 temples met The Lord

364. When the 68 temples saw The Lord
The Ganges talked to the 68 temples

365. The Ganges assembled the temples
And told them Shri Karsan (Krishna) has manifested in Shri Budh

366. When on the way came the King of Paradise
All temples fell at His feet

367. And there, they much implored and said:
Why are You sending us back, O Lord?

368. Then The Lord so spake:
O Ganges, why did you come out of your bed?

369. Then the 68 temples said to The Lord:
How will we tolerate living in the Kaljug?

370. Now the Duapurjug has come to an end, the Kaljug has taken over
And the faithful have left this home.

371. Then The Ganges tells to The Lord:
How will I tolerate living in the Kaljug?

372. If You stay manifested during Kaljug
Then we will not leave our shore

373. Such was the prayer of the temples to The Lord.
Then The Lord became attentive

374. Then The Lord said to The Ganges: Listen to Me
I will not be manifested during Kaljug

375. In the Setar sub-continent, in the West I shall be
And there, in My Tenth Manifestation I shall be hidden

376. Then the 68 temples said to The Lord:
O Lord, we shall not be able to live in the Kaljug

377. During Kaljug, people will commit many murders
All these crimes will be committed with no regrets

378. And after committing their crimes, they will join their hands
Their prayer will be feigned

379. They will use our name to praise us
Their sins will be upon us

380. After committing ill-deeds
They will come and walk round and round in us

381. Those ones, during Kaljug, will be the sinners
We will not tolerate to see them during Kaljug

382. O Lord, there will be sun sins in the Kaljug
We will not survive without You

383. The Lord listened to these words
He said to the temples:

384. Listen, O Ganges, to My words
You are born of the Miracle of Gur Bhirma (Allah The Creator)

385. You are born of the Miracle of Gur Bhirma
You have instituted the 68 (sacred) temples

386. Stay the way Gur Bhirma created you
Stay in His Miracle.

387. When The Lord Narayanr explained this,
The 68 temples calmed down.

388. In the town of Kahek (46) in Jampudip (47)
Gur Brahma manifested Himself

389. In Jampudip will live the Master Hassan Shah
The Name of the Master will be Pir Hassan Kabirdin (48)

390. Where there will be prayers and good deed
He will be there, present

391. He will be manifested during Kaljug
The ignorant people will not know Him

392. When The Lord Narayanr had given the news about The Master
The 68 temples turned to salute

393. Then the 68 temples saluted The Lord
O Lord, tell us where we can find You during Kaljug

394. Then The Lord Narayanr said to The Ganges:
In Our Light will live Gur Brahma

395. When The Lord uttered these words
The 68 temples were overjoyed

396. When The Lord had given this secret to the 68 temples
The 68 temples went away.

397. Then each one went, through meditation, to meet the Master Nabi Muhammad
Gur Brahma has manifested in Nabi Muhammad.

398. Then during Kaljug, the temples remained in the Miracle of Gur Brahma
The premises of these temples were cleared out.

399. For the 68 temples, the meaning of the three Vedas
Was for the past three Cycles (49)

400. Today, the ignorants in the Kaljug are reciting the empty Vedas
And the ignorant people will waste their time in the empty temples

401. During Kaljug, people will bring their worries to the empty temples
How can it be of benefit to them

402. The benefits were for the past three jugs
And now, what is left is the envelope.

403. When The Lord sent the 68 temples back,
The idols came to The Lord.

404. They fell at His feet and implored Him:
Why are you sending us back, O Lord?

405. If you don't manifest Yourself
Who, without You, will take care of us?

406. As the idols implored God with love,
God replied to the idols with love:

407. The Lord said to the idols: think with love,
Don't leave the world

408. Those who will consummate meat and alcohol will resemble you
During Kaljug, they will much praise you

409. So spake and explained The Lord
Then the idols were overjoyed

410. Then the idols, with joint hands, saluted The Lord
O Lord, where should we live during Kaljug?

411. O Lord, now, we will live wherever You tell us
Such is our supplication to You

412. Then with love, The Lord talked to the idols
Today, the 68 temples have been vacated

413. Gur Brahma has left all the temples
Go and live in those empty houses

414. Then The Lord prepared them a residence for the Kaljug
In which the idols went to live

415. While going there, do many miracles
And show it to people

416. Do such miracles
That those who are gone astray get together there, with confidence

417. The more the miracles, the more they will go to the temples
The fruit (benefit) of their deeds will be taken away by the idols

418. Eat these fruit by magic
Then they will all return to the temples

419. In the temples where the idols are being praised and worshipped
All these praises will be taken away by the idols

420. The more they come to you
The more they will praise you and trust you

421. When the idols were given shelter in the 68 temples
They saluted The Lord

422. Of the twenty-four countries (50), of the nine continents,
Of the 68 temples, make your home.

423. The Lord said: Listen, O idols,
Ruin the people who have gone astray

424. The prayers that will said without the Athar Veda (51)
Of these prayers, the idols will take advantage, with love

425. Today, during the Kaljug, Gur Brahma is Prophet Muhammad
But the lost world does not know Him.

426. Today, praise the Tenth Manifestation
And praise Him in the House (Jamatkhana) of Gur Sohodev (52)

427. Thus saith The Lord and He sent them back
And the idols were all happy

428. In the temples have come idols of stone
Go and live in those places

429. In this Kaljug, Religion is quiet
Keep your presence in all the temples

430. The Lord said: Listen, O idols
Rob the lost world

431. Today, each prayer said under miracle
Will be given to the idols.

432. He who, today, does not know Prophet Muhammad, the Master of Truth,
That one is saluting the gods of stone

433. The world will gather where there will be miracles
This lost world will not trust the Master of Truth

434. The Lord so spake and left the idols.
Then the stones and the loose stones

435. Fell at The Lord's feet and implored Him
Why do you send us back, O Lord?

436. O stones and loose stones, said The Lord then,
O stones and loose stones, why have you come here?

437. O Lord, we, the innocent, are being hammered, broken up and called "God"
O Lord, do justice about this

438. The words of stones and loose stones were heard by The Lord;
O Lord, while pronouncing Your Name they will say their prayers on us

439. To them, do our justice, O Master
We, the innocent, are much imploring You

440. All those who praise us - the stones and loose stones
Of all those praises the idols are taking advantage

441. The lost people are decorating us
Those idiots bow down before us and call us "Lord".

442. The Lord replied at once: Listen, stones and loose stones,
Those people will slaughter you and harm you

443. Don't be sad about that
We will settle accounts with them when The Lord Master will sit on the Throne

444. We shall do you justice at the Day of Judgment (53)
Those who praise you will drop on their knees

445. On the Day of Resurrection, We shall call them for accounts
Stones and lose stones, obey My words.

446. When The Lord had uttered these words,
The stones and loose stones kept quiet.

447. The stones and loose stones heard it from Shri Budh's own lips
They are enduring today the suffering of the Kaljug.

448. Now listen to the thoughts of the Pandaw
Those ones who went to The Himalayas

449. The Pandaw will say: We are abandoning our kingdom,
Thanks to the promise of the Master of Truth, we have reached Paradise

450. Thus spoke King Jujeshtan Pandaw
Who died on The Himalayas

451. Then 90 million (54) souls left with King Jujeshtan
They reached Paradise

452. That was the end of the Duapurjug
The Pandaw kings received the promise of The Lord

453. Thus spake Gur Sohodev
There is no end to the Manifestation of the Divine Essence

454. Listen, faithful, said Gur Sohodev
Again, I repeat to you The Essence

455. The Tenth Manifestation was taken by The Forgiver
The Creator took the Naklanki (55) Manifestation

456. The pre-Eternal Vishnu is The Lord Ali
Gur Brahma is equivalent to Prophet Muhammad

457. The Kaljug came with its Atha Veda (56)
Nobody understood its meaning

458. Ishwar (57) was called Adam
According to the Vedas, I explain to you the place

459. In Jampudip (58), the region of Bharat,
The town of Duarka

460. In Jampudip lives Gur Brahma (59)
Who, today, recites the Athar Veda

461. In the Setar (60) sub-continent, the region of Irak, the state of Daylam

His soldiers will be powerful

467. From China will come the Kalingo

468. The Kalingo will have 4 million followers
They will make a lot of trouble

469. By concentration, he will go to the skies
He will feed iron horses with sugar

470. He will show the deceased mothers and fathers
He will reverse the current of the river

471. He will make mountains of food move forward
He will change water into butter

472. The Kalingo will accomplish such miracles
And there, the whole world will be lost

473. Only My followers will not be lost
Those who will have recognized the Master of Truth.

474. When the demon Kalingo will make such trouble
The Lord Narayanr will reveal Himself certainly

475. In the region of Multan, the armies will meet
Step by step, they will move forward

And there will gather bright warriors

A hubbub will rise in the two armies

The head of the devil will fall down

I recite to you The Essence

521. Listen, faithful, we have prophesied the future
By Grace of The Lord, said Pir Sadardin
