O momins: Keep the boat of your body under the control of the
True Guide and through your efforts sail your soul across.
The world is like a sea. It is indeed a great sea. It is full to
the brim between the two banks (limits). Those who are deficient
in their good deeds, how will they get across?

Pir Sadardeen

Keep in control of the boat (our body) into the hands

of the true Guide.

And by checking the mind, from going astray preserve our soul.

The world is like a sea, a great sea.

The sea is full to the brim between both banks.

(In which) Those who lack the power of the spiritual earning,

How would they get safely across to the other bank? ...1

In spite of the Lord's presence being in the world, those who did not take the Lord's name;

They have taken themselves (the so-called spiritual guides)
