Chup Karke Kareen Guzaare Nu

Chup kareke kareen guzaare nu.
Sach sunke log na sehnde ni,
sach aakhiye te gal pained ni.
Phir sache paas na behnde ni,
sach mitha aashiq pyaare nu.
Chup kareke kareen guzaare nu.

Stay silent to survive
People cannot stand to hear the truth.
They are at your throat if you speak it.
They keep away from those who speak it.
But truth is sweet to its lovers!

Sach shara kare barbaadi eh,
sach aashiq de ghar shaadi eh.
Sach karda naveen abaadi eh,
jiha shara tareekat hare nu.
Chup kareke kareen guzaare nu.

Truth destroys shara.
Brings rapture to its lovers,
And unexpected riches,
Which shara obscures.
Stay silent to survive.

Chup aashiq to na hundi eh,
jis aayi sach sugandhi eh.
Jis maahl suhaag di gundi eh,
chadd duniya kood pasaare nu.
Chup kareke kareen guzaare nu.

Those lovers cannot remain silent
Who have inhaled the fragrance of truth.
Those who have plaited love into their lives,
Leave this world of falsehood.
Stay silent to survive.

Bulla Shah sach hun bole hai,
sach shara tareekat phole eh.
Gal chauthe pad di khole eh,
jiha shara tareeke haare nu.
Chup kareke kareen guzaare nu.

Bulla Shah speaks the truth.
He uncovers the truth of shara.
He opens the path to the fourth level,
Which shara obscures.
Stay silent to survive.

Bulleh Shah
