नाथ तू अनाथको, अनाथ कौन मोसो
ब्रह्म तू ,हौं जीव, तू है ठाकुर, हौं चेरो।
तोहिं मोहिं नाते अनेक, मानियै जो भावै।
(विनयपत्रिका पद - ७९)
nAth tU anAthako, anAth kaun moso
brahm tU, haun jIva, tU hai ThAkur, haun chero
tohiM mohiM nAte anek, mAniyai jo bhAvai
(vinayapatrikA pada - 79)
O lord! You are the merciful, and I am the afflicted. You are the donor, and I am the beggar. I am the renowned sinner, and you are the destroyer of multitudes of sins.
You are the protector of the orphans, and who is as orphaned as I am? There is none as pained like me, and there is no absolver of pain like you.
You are the [ever-growing] Brahman and I am the [finite] Jiva. You are the master, and I am the servant. You are my father, my mother, my Guru, my friend and my benefactor in every way.
O the compassionate! [Thus] there are so many relations between you and me, you consider whatever you like, [such that] Tulasidasa gets refuge in your feet by some way or other.
