औरन को सीतल करै, आपहु सीतल होय॥

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.
