DHUNI SONG

(The following verses in Gujrati on Dhuni was composed by Avatar Meher Baba)

Karu tari sifat kianthi, kalam ma te nathi takat

Salagta meher varsavi, ajab tari chheye bargat

 

Could I ever praise you enough?

My pen is not strong enough to do it.

Whilst fire (of dhuni) burns.

Wonderful mercy (of rain) pours

Wonderful is your blessing.

 

Te tara shoal tajaswine, karwa shant khud Yezdan

Kalako meghne dware, tane api khari izzat

 

In order to appease the heat of your blessing fire.

God Himself through hours of pouring rain has

Bestowed upon you a true position of honour.

 

Hazarone shafa deje, gariboni dua leje

Rahe tu aptoj jeje, koi tujthi kare minnat

 

May you give relief to thousands;

May you bless the helpless.

May you go on giving your grace to one

who longs from you to receive it.

 

Chhe tujna gun wali jewa pade tuj ma bane tewa

Ajab tari karamat chhe, ajab lila kudrat

 

Your qualities are those of a wali,

those who affiliate themselves with you

become like you.

Marvelous is your work;

Wonderful is your play and your nature.

 

Tu phaldrupbi kari ape ne jadmulthi bi vruksh kape

Kare abadne barbad tari baju chke barkat  

 

Capable are you of making life beautiful.

Capable are you also of uprooting the tree of life.

You have the power to flourish things

and also to destroy them; both are your blessings.

 

Sambhale tujne je insan, kare taiyar sau pakwan.

Ne chhede tujne je nadan, tu tene mate chhe afat

 

 Anyone who befriends you can be benefited by

utilizing you for the purpose of cooking all things.

Any ignorant man who affronts you,

you could be a terror to him.

 

Walini ej upma chhe, walina ej chhe gundosh

Taraweli dubaweli, walini ej chhe khaslat

 

Wali has the same type of good quality

Wali has the same blemish,

Wali has the same quality of either a

savior or a destroyer.

 

To Meherabadni dhuni, Nagar pani wagar suni

Khara maukane pahichani, buji khedutni mehenat

 

You “Dhuni” of Meherabad! Without you

The town of Nagar would be barren with no water.

Having taken the right occasion.

You have truly rewarded the labour of farmers.

 

Kadak banyo tu atash thaee ne thaee narem banyo

Te nazdiknane daee garmi ne khush kidhi badhi khalkat

 

In the form of fire you became hard’ taking from

of water you became soft.

Having given the warmth to those bear you,

You made happy the world around you.

 

Tu babane sharan rehje, gurune wandana kehje

Charanma Sadguruna  je name tenij chhee Himmat

 

Be ye surrendered to Baba, be ye offering your

Obeisance to your guru.

Brave are those who serve at the feet of Sadguru.

 

Agadh mahimma teri dhuni, tujko Jane rushi muni

Beheramko sone lagaya, asmanko rone lagya

 

Vast is your greatness oh dhuni!

Rushis and Munis can only recognize you.

You made the fire sleep and awakened the

clouds to weep.

 

Teri anchse badal pigla, bhija diya mera sadra dagla

Sadguruka tu sacha das, hamesha rahena pas

 

By your fire the cloud did melt

and by its pouring my shirt and coat got wet.

Like a true servant of a Sadguru,

Stay with him you always should do.

 

Kathan huwa dushkalka jina usko tujase hua pasina

Tu hai guruka sacha banda, mere thande hathka garam danda

 

Difficult it was to live in the heat of your famine

that brought on you they sweat of suffering.

You are the real slave of the Master that you deserve

to be blessed by the fiery rod of my peaceful hand.
