4. Man is lost in greed,
And does not know his own interest.
O my greedy mind,
You are ever lost in greed.
He who is lost in greed for worldly things,
Is neither honoured in this world nor in the next.
He who is full of greed for wealth of someone who is dead,
Has wasted his valuable life.
Though the light in one’s eyes has dimmed.
Yet one craves for a long life.
Lord, the surge of greed is very fierce,
And this boat of mine is about to sink.
NAMDEVJI BASANT RAG

It is lured away by greed.
