Ram Niranjan Nyara Re, Anjan Sakal Pasara Re 

Anjan Utapati, Omkar, Anjan Mange Sab Bistar 
Anjan Brahma Shankar Indar, Anjan Gopi Sangi Govind Re 

Anjan Vani, Anjan Ved, Anjan Kiya Na Na Bhed 
Anjan Vidya Path Puran, Anjan Woh Kat Kat Hi Gyan Re 

Anjan Paati Anjan Dev, Anjan Ki Kare Anjan Sev  
Anjan Nache Anjan Gawe, Anjan Bhesh Anant Dikhawe Re 

Anjan Kahan Kahan Lag Keta, Dan Puni Tap Tirath Jeta 
Kahe Kabir Koi Birla Jage, Anjan Chaadhi Anant Hi Dage Re 

Translation

Untainted Ram is Unmatched,
Manifesting the Entire Tainted (Reality)

Tainted are the Womb (of Creation) and the Om,
The Tainted Demands All Expansiveness 
Tainted are Brahma, Shankra and Indra,
Tainted is the Govinda along with his Gopis 

Tainted are the Spoken Words and Listening, 
Tainted has Created Innumerable Distinctions 
Tainted are Knowledge, the Daily Prayers and the Ancient Scriptures,
Tainted is that Questioning and Reasoning Knowledge 

Tainted is the Leaf and Tainted are the Enlightened Beings, 
Tainted is the Served and Tainted is the Servant 
Tainted is the Singer and the Dancer,
The Tainted Displays Endless Forms 

Where is the Limit, up to Which Tainted has Taken Hold?
Even in Philanthropy, Purity, Austerities and 
          Places of Pilgrimage, Tainted is Victorious 
Says Kabir Only a Very Rare, Exceptional One Awakens,
Tainted has Left Endless Stains 

Explanation

In this song, Kabir, instructing his highest teaching, tells us how rare it is for anybody to reach a state of untainted, full Self-realization. Anything short of this state of full realization Kabir labels as Tainted. Since this state of Self-realization is beyond words, Kabir uses the method of negation (of the non-real) to guide us.

He unequivocally explains that the whole of creation - small leaves to Devatas such as Brahma, Shankar, Indra and Govinda - are all caught in the tight grasp of the state of non-realization. He even goes on to say that the study of scriptures, acts of philanthropy, austerities, and visits to places of pilgrimage all are instances where the tainted duality has been victorious. In his final signature note, Kabir declares that everywhere we look, we see only the tainted reality. Only an extremely exceptional person awakens and reaches the state of untainted complete and irreversible realization.
