Jinahu baath nischal dhhrooa jaanee thaeee jeev kaal thae bachaa ||
thinh thariou samudhra rudhra khin eik mehi jalehar bi(n)b jugath jag rachaa ||
ku(n)ddalanee surajhee sathasa(n)gath paramaana(n)dh guroo mukh machaa ||

Translation (the attributes refer to God, the Divine, Universal):
Those who are realizing the Eternal, Unchanging Word of God, like Dhroo, are immune to death.
They will cross over the terrifying world-ocean in an instant; the Lord created the world like a bubble of water.
The Kundalini rises in the Sat Sangat, which is the True Congregation; through the Word of the Guru, they enjoy the Lord of Supreme Bliss.
The Supreme Guru is the Lord and Master over all; therfore serve the True Guru, in thought, word and deed.
