ਅੜਿੱਲ ॥

ਸ੝ਨੈ ਗ੝ੰਗ ਜੋ ਯਾਹਿ ਸ੝ ਰਸਨਾ ਪਾਵਈ ॥ ਸ੝ਨੈ ਮੂੜ੝ਹ ਚਿਤ ਲਾਇ ਚਤ੝ਰਤਾ ਆਵਈ ॥
ਦੂਖ ਦਰਦ ਭੌ ਨਿਕਟ ਨ ਤਿਨ ਨਰ ਕੇ ਰਹੈ ॥ ਹੋ ਜੋ ਯਾਕੀ ਝਕ ਬਾਰ ਚੌਪਈ ਕੋ ਕਹੈ ॥੪੦੪॥


The dumb, who will listen to it, will be blessed with the tongue to speak; the fool, who will listen to it attentively, will get wisdom;
That person will be absolved of suffering, pain or fear, who will even once recite this Chaupai-prayer. (404)
