અઉંકારે અલખ નીરંજન સાદ નઈ, સબદ નઈ,
અઉંકાર નઈ, જલ નઈ, થલ નઈ, ધરતી નઈ,
આકાશ નઈ, મેર નઈ, કવરાશ નઈ, ચંદા નઈ,
સુરજ નઈ, પવન નઈ,પાની નઈ, નઈ તસકી માત,
નઈ તસકા પિતા, નઈ જીવન, નઈ મરણ,
નઈ અલખદેવ,છત્રી યુગ ચોરાસી ચોક્ડી વઈ ગયા તઈએ,
એક પવનરુપી ગોટા બનાયા, તેજ રતીમાંય ઠેરાયા, તઈએ
આપ અલખ નપાઈ તે કાયા, કાયા થકી નપાઈ માયા,
તઈએ અલખદેવ અઉંકાર કીયા, અઉંકાર થી પ્રકાશ હુઆ,
પ્રકાશથી નાભી હુઆ, નાભીથી કમલ હુઆ, કમલથી ઓધ
બોધ હુઆ,અઉંકારે અલખ હુઆ, સઉંકારે સગતી,
આડ ઓપતજી પેલી કેણી, સોજ વરમા શારદામાતા જી ગેણી

Which, translated to English means:[4]

There was no sound of God, no words, no water,
no land, no earth, no space, no positive, no negative,
no moon, no sun, no one was the mother, no one was the father,
no life, no death, no God himself in figure,
36 yuga, 84 chokdi passed, then there God generated
a sphere looking like an air bubble from the fastest and smallest particle,
when the sphere stabilized there was God himself,
with the generated area reflecting the matrix of God
God spoke, his speaking generated light, the light generated a center (of mass),
the center generated a lotus (galaxy), the lotus generated the sun and the moon,
Lord came into form, this was the first deed of the Lord
as Creator with his consort Sharda (energy)
for creation of the planetary system"
