Context:
सचि कालु कूड़ु वरतिआ कलि कालख बेताल॥
There is a famine of Truth; falsehood prevails, and the blackness of the Dark Age of Kali Yuga has turned men into demons.
बीउ बीजि पति लै गए अब किउ उगवै दालि॥
Those who planted their seed have departed with honor; now, how can the shattered seed sprout?
जे इकु होइ त उगवै रुती हू रुति होइ॥
If the seed is whole, and it is the proper season, then the seed will sprout.
नानक पाहै बाहरा कोरै रंगु न सोइ॥
O Nanak, without treatment, the raw fabric cannot be dyed.
भै विचि खु्मबि चड़ाईऐ सरमु पाहु तनि होइ॥
In the Fear of God it is bleached white, if the treatment of modesty is applied to the cloth of the body.
नानक भगती जे रपै कूड़ै सोइ न कोइ॥
O Nanak, if one is imbued with devotional worship, his reputation is not false.
नानक मेरु सरीर का इकु रथु इकु रथवाहु॥
O Nanak, the soul of the body has one chariot and one charioteer.
जुगु जुगु फेरि वटाईअहि गिआनी बुझहि ताहि॥
In age after age they change; the spiritually wise understand this.
सतजुगि रथु संतोख का धरमु अगै रथवाहु॥
In the Golden Age of Sat Yuga, contentment was the chariot and righteousness the charioteer.
त्रेतै रथु जतै का जोरु अगै रथवाहु॥
In the Silver Age of Traytaa Yuga, celibacy was the chariot and power the charioteer.
दुआपुरि रथु तपै का सतु अगै रथवाहु॥
In the Brass Age of Dwaapar Yuga, penance was the chariot and truth the charioteer.
कलजुगि रथु अगनि का कूड़ु अगै रथवाहु॥
In the Iron Age of Kali Yuga, fire is the chariot and falsehood the charioteer.
