2nd Paragraph

The second paragraph describes the Lord's immense genero­sity, mercy, and equanimous nature. He put an umbrella over the poet like a king and the poet feels immense happiness from it. Raidas says that the Lord has readily adopted the devotees of lower castes like Namdev, Kabir, Trilochan, Sadhna, and Sainu and given them a respec­table place in the world. God has never discri­minated against anyone. In the second verse, the poet has called God merciful to the poor and downtr­odden. Raidas has called his master as Gusaiya (Boss, God) and Garib Nivaju (savior of the poor). He asks the saints to listen, telling them that nothing is unusual for God.
