    पर-सम्पदाएँ मिलने पर भी

    उनको मैंने स्वप्न में भी

    ना लीं।

    और

    अपनी उदारता दिखाने

    किसी स्वार्थ या यश-लोकैषणावश

    दूसरों को उन्हें न दीं

    तभी...तो...हमें

    सन्तों ने सार्थक संज्ञा दी-

    ...नाली!...नदी!

     

    हमसे विपरीत चाल चलनेवाले

    दीन होते हैं।

    कुछ शिथिलाचारी साधुओं को

    ‘‘बहता पानी और रमता जोगी''

    इस सूक्ति के माध्यम से

    सही दिशा-बोध मिला है

    इससे बढ़ कर भला

    और कौन-सा वह

    आदर्श हो सकता है संसार में!

    इस आदर्श में अब

    अपना मुख देख लो

    और

    पहचान लो अपने रूप-स्वरूप को!''

     

    उच्छंखला जडाशया

    अपनी ही प्रशंसा में डूबी-

    नदी की बातें सुन

    उत्तेजित हुए बिना

     

    Even after encountering the worldly wealth

    I haven't, even in dream,

    Taken their possession.

    And

    To show my magnanimity

    I have not bestowed it to others

    Out of any selfish motive, for gaining fame or public superiority, That...is why...indeed

    The saints assigned us a meaningful name... Nāli!..., that is, neither taken !...Nādī, that is, nor given...!

     

    Those who conduct themselves contrary to us,

    Become pitiable. -

    Some ascetics of feeble conduct

    Have attained a true sense of right direction

    Through this saying -

    “The rolling waters and the roaming ascetics'

    Well, in this wide world,

    What else can be that ideal

    Better than this one !

    Now into this ideal,

    Try to have a look at your own face,

    And

    Identify your own image' and your own ‘self'!”

     

    On hearing the utterings

    Full of rude and foolish views of the river

    Absorbed in self-praise, 

    - Without being excited -
