ज्ञानियांचा राजा गुरू महाराव ।
Amongst the learned you are the revered teacher and the King.
ह्मणती ज्ञानदेव तुह्मां ऐसें ॥१॥
That is why everyone calls you “Dnyandev” (God of Knowledge)
मज पामरासीं काय थोरपण ।
Don’t give insignificant person like me under importance.
पायींची वाहाण पायीं बरी ॥२॥
Footwear should beworn on feet ! (Don’t put it on head)
ब्रह्मादिक जेथें तुह्मां वोळगणे ।
When gods like Brahma honor you ,
इतर तुळणें काय पुढे ॥३॥
There is no need for further comparison
तुका ह्मणे नेणे युक्तीचिया खोलीं ।
Tuka says I have no other gifts
ह्मणोनि ठेविली पायीं डोई ॥४॥
Therefore I rest my head at your Feet
आतां कोठें धांवे मन ।
How can my mind wander elsewhere?
तुझे चरण देखिलिया ॥१॥
After I have seen your feet (been in your presence)
भाग गेला सीण गेला ।
The grief and sufferings of life have disappeared.
अवघा जाला आनंद ॥२॥
Now it is only happiness
प्रेमरसें बैसली मिठी ।
With loving devotion I have embraced you
आवडी लाठी मुखाशी ॥३॥
And your name is in my mouth
(लाठी = chanting)
तुका ह्मणे आह्मां जोगें ।
Tuka says,Vitthal is the only true
विठ्ठला घोगें खरें माप ॥४॥
