needed translation

SSA, a request for help “phahe kate mite gavan fatih bhai mani jit

the noose of Yama hath been cleft, transmigration hath ceased and, with the conquest of the self, true victory hath been achieved”

it seems to me that the translation here is much deeper/longer than the phrase translated. i see no reference to Yama in the Gurmuki phrase.

what is the word Gavan - ___________________

what does "phahe kate mite gavan fatih bhai mani jit" literally translate as?

mite= mani= jewel? jit= victory? i thought bhai means brother or first? Thanks for any helpAllenwalla 21:56, 28 November 2007 (MST)

Please see translation here

ਫਾਹੇ ਕਾਟੇ ਮਿਟੇ ਗਵਨ ਫਤਿਹ ਭਈ ਮਨਿ ਜੀਤ ॥
फाहे काटे मिटे गवन फतिह भई मनि जीत ॥
Fĝhė kĝtė mitė gavan faṯih bẖa­ī man jīṯ.
The noose of Death is cut, and one's wanderings cease; victory is obtained, when one conquers his own mind. (SGGS page 258)
