MOMAN MAN EM JANJO JI
Pir Hassanshah
O momin bear this in mind.
Be not proud of your body. ...1

Profound obscurity prevaileth in the interior of it.
Give up all vanity. ...2

Many a thought prevaileth side by side. They distract your attention from the Lord. ...3

Bear in mind the directions pointed by the Gur.
So that you may escape (the sufferings of) the four Khans.
(These are: Sitej, Jeraj, Indej, Udbhoj.
There is a fifth one too called Hetej
in which one does not suffer). ...4

Act in accordance with knowledge (comprehensive of knowledge)
