रहिमन देख बड़ेन को, लघु न दीजिये डारि।
जहाँ काम आवै सुई, कहा करै तलवारि॥

Meaning in Hindi

Rahimji kehte hain, ki badon aur aishwarya sampann logo ko dekh ke puraane aur chhote doston ko mat bhulao. Jaise , jahan sui ka kaam hoga , wahan talwar se kaam nahin chal sakta

Meaning in English

Rahim says, you should not forget small things/ poor friends just because you now have access to big / rich, important people. For example, you cannot use a sword where you need a needle even though sword is much bigger than needle.

बानी ऐसी बोलिये, मन का आपा खोय।
औरन को सीतल करै, आपहु सीतल होय॥

Meaning in Hindi

Vaani itni madhur honi chahiye jo sabko bhaav-vibhor kar de. Doosro ko bhi sheetalta aur khushi de, aur apne man ko abhi sheetal kare.

Meaning in English

Your speech should be such that it should please everyone. Others should feel happy listening to you and you yourself should also feel happy and content.

रहिमन धागा प्रेम का, मत तोड़ो चटकाय।
टूटे से फिर ना जुड़े, जुड़े गाँठ परि जाय॥

Meaning in Hindi

Rahim kehte hain ki prem aur rishton ka bandhan dhaage ki tarah hai. Jaise dhaaga tut kar phir nahin jud sakta aur agar jude to bhi gaath pad jaati hai. Aise hi rishte bhi agar ek baar toot jaaye to poori tarah nahin jud paate.

Meaning in English

Rahim says, don't allow the delicate thread of love between people to snap. If it breaks once, it cannot be mended, even if you mend it there will be a knot in it, which means there will always be some awkwardness in the relationship.

रुठे सुजन मनाइए, जो रुठै सौ बार। 
रहिमन फिरि फिरि पोहिए, टूटे मुक्ताहार॥

Meaning in Hindi

Agar acche log aapse rooth jaayein, to aapko unhe bar-bar mana lena chahiye. Jaise motiyon ka haar chahe kitni baar bhi toote, hum use phir se piro lete hain.

Meaning in English

Rahim says, if good people get angry with you, you should reconcile with them as many times as it happens. As you repair a pearl necklace as many times as it breaks.

छमा बड़न को चाहिये, छोटन को उत्पात।
कह ‘रहीम’ हरि का घट्यौ, जो भृगु मारी लात॥

Meaning in Hindi

Jo chhote log hote wo utpaat machaate hain, aur bade log unko maaf kar dete hain. Jaise rishi Bhrigu ne Bhagwaan Vishnu ko laat maari, to bhi bhagwaan ne unko maaf kar diya.

Meaning in English

Narrow-minded people create trouble and great people forgive them. Rahim says, God Vishnu did not mind when Sage Bhrigu kicked him.

तरुवर फल नहिं खात है, सरवर पियहि न पान।
कहि रहीम पर काज हित, संपति सँचहि सुजान॥

Meaning in Hindi

Jaise ped apne phal khud nahin khaate, aur sarovar apna paani khud nahin peeta. Rahim kehte hain, waise hi jo sajjan log hote hain, wo doosre ke kalyaan ke liye hi sampatti sanchay karte hain.

Meaning in English

Trees do not eat their own fruits, pools don't drink their own water. Rahim says, good people accumulate wealth to do good to others.

बुरा जो देखन मैं चला, बुरा न मिलिया कोय।
जो दिल खोजा आपना, मुझसा बुरा न कोय ॥

Meaning in Hindi

Main jab doosron me buraai dhoondne chala, to koi bhi bura nahin mila. Jab maine apna dil tatola, to mujhse zyada bura koi nahin mila.

Meaning in English

When I looked for evil outside, I could not find any evil. Once I started looking in my own heart (introspection), I found I was the most evil. Rahim means, we should try to improve upon our own shortcomings rather than finding faults with others.

 बिगरी बात बनै नहीं, लाख करों किन कोय ।

 रहिमन फाटे दूध को, मथे न माखन होय

Meaning in Hindi

Rahim ji kehte hain ki bigdi hui baat lakh manane par bhi nahin manti hai, jaise agar doodh ek baar fat jaaye to use kitna bhi matho, usme me makhan nahin nikal sakta.

Meaning in English

Rahim says when something goes wrong, it does not get right by any means you may try. Just like when milk gets curdled, you cannot whip it to get butter.

गहि सरनागति राम की, भवसागर की नाव ।
रहिमन जगत-उधार को, और ना कोऊ उपाय ।।

Meaning in Hindi

Rahimji ji kehte hain ki Ram naam ki naav me ja kar hi is bhav sagar ke paar jaya ja sakta hai. Arthat is sansaar se uddhar ka bhagwaan ki sharan me jaane ke alawa aur koi upay nahin hai.

Meaning in English

Rahim says to get through this life and world, the only way is through God (Ram).

चाह गयी चिंता मिटी, मनुआ बेपरवाह
जिनको कछु ना चाहिए, वे साहन के साह

Meaning in Hindi

Rahimji kehte hain ki agar man se chah arthat ichchha chali jaaye to man se sab chinta chali jaati hai. Jinko kucch nahin chahiye, wo rajaon ke raja hain kyonki wo har haal me khush rehte hain.

Meaning in English

Rahim says that wanting things is the root of all worries and if one an abolish all wants there will be no worry. People who do not want anything are kings of kings as they are happy in all circumstances.

जो रहीम उत्तम प्रकृति, का करी सकत कुसंग ।
चन्दन विष व्यापत नहीं, लिपटे रहत भुजंग ।।

Meaning in Hindi

Rahim kehte hain, ki jo log achchhi prakriti ke hote hain, bura saath bhi unka kuchh nahin kar sakta. Jaise chandan ke ped par saanp lipte rehte hain, phir bhi chandan me zahar nahin hota.

Meaning in English

Rahim says bad company can not spoil someone with excellent character. As, snakes are always there on sandalwood tree, but it never gets poisonous.

रहिमन पानी राखिये, बिन पानी सब सून।
पानी गये न ऊबरे, मोती, मानुष, चून॥

Meaning in Hindi

Rahim kehte hain ki paani ke bina sab soona hai. Paani ke bina moti(sampatti), manushya aur choona(dharati) sab bekaar hain.

Meaning in English

Rahim says, water is most important. As without water, there is no wealth(pearls) , life or earth.
