(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.
