tāre vāgā te ginānana vājāre mā
Vocals: Nazia Amin Mohammad
Ginan: Pir Shams
Garbi Number 24
Then he played the melody of that ginan!
Refrain: [Yes] O Mother, Guru Shams performed such a spectacle.
All the pious ones came and stood there.
Then the instruments of religion (dharma) began to play.
The shackles of all former deeds (karma) were released.
The great kings too came to join in the dance.
Leaving behind their lands, they came and stood.
Everywhere there was great bliss and rejoicing.
ln the city, there lived a king.
He came to know about the garbi dance.
[He heard] that the Bow-Wielder himself was at the garbi.
So the king also came to the scene.
He was accompanied by an escort of ministers.
They all witnessed the art and marvels of the Guru.
The residents of the entire city had come and gathered.
They were all struck with utter amazement.
They came before the Guru and prostrated themselves at his feet.
Thus has Pir Shams spoken:
o Brothers, be devoted to the True Path (satpanth)!
