Bulla Ki Jana Main Kaun

Bulleh Shah

SANT BULLEH SHAH
Bulla ki jaana main kaun
Bulla ki jaana main kaun
Na main moman vich maseetan
Na main vich kufar dian reetan
Na main pakan vich paleetan
Na main andar bed kitaban
Na main rehnda phaang sharaban
Na main rehnda mast kharaban
Na main shadi na ghamnaki
Na main vich paleetan pakeen
Na main aaabi na main khaki
Na main aatish na main paun
Bulla ki jana main kaun
Na main arabi na lahori
Na main hindi shehar Nagaori
Na hindu na turk pashauri
Na main bhet mazhab de paya
Na main aadam hawwa jaya
Na koi apna naam dharaya
Avval aakhar aap nu jana
Na koi dooja hor pacchana
Mai ton na koi hor syana
Bulle shah kharha hai kaun
Bulla ki jaana main kaun
Na main moosa na pharoah
Na main jagan na vich saun
Na main aatish na main paun
Na main rahnda vich Nadaun
Na main baitthan na vich bhaun
Bulle shah kharha hai kaun
Bulla Ki jaana main kaun
Bulla ki jaana main kaun.
Translation-
Bulla! I know not who I am
Nor am I a believer of the mosque,
Nor am I in rituals of the infidel
Nor am I the pure inside the impure.
Nor am I inherent in the vedas,
Nor am I present in intoxicants.
Nor am I lost nor the corrupt.
Nor am I union, nor grief,
Nor am I intrinsic in the pure/impure
Nor am I of water, nor of land.
Nor am I fire nor air.
Bulla! I know not who I am
Nor am I Arabic, nor from Lahore,
Nor am I the Indian city of Nagour.
Nor hindu or a turk from Peshawar.
Nor did I create differences of faith,
Nor did I create Adam and Eve
Nor did I name my self.
Beginning or end, I just know the self,
Do not acknowledge duality.
There's none wise than I.
Who is this Bulla shah
Bulla! I know not who I am.
Nor am I moses, nor Pharoah
Nor am I fire nor wind.
I do not stay in Nadaun city. (City of innocents)
Bullashah, who is this man standing?
Bulla! I know not who I am
Bulla! I know not who I am.
