Kabir and his wisdom.

baajigar ka baandraa , jeeba manke saath
naa naa naach nachaye kari, rakhe apnaa haath.


Like a monkey of a magician,
man is a slave to mind;
It makes him dance to its tune,
and keeps him tied, you find..

Kabir implies that for spiritual attainment, mind has to be kept uner control for mind being fickle is apt to mislead man and stand in the way of his spritual progress.

Kabir cites the popular smile of man being at the command of the mind like the monkey in the hands of a magician and dancing to his tunes.

The illustrious saint-poet, kabir, from whose lips flowed effortlessly and extempore thousands of songs and couplets replete with spiritual message and worldly wisdom, and one who professed oneness of the entire humanity and the religion of humanism and craved well-being of all his fellow men on earth wept as follows:

all the people are living happily
eating and sleeping soundly
Dasa Kabir alone is sorrowing
Awake and weeping profusely

Kabir was weeping not for himself but for his fellowmen, countrymen, and entire humanity's well being and salvation.

The great man was uneducated but was he?

Jab tu aaya jagat me, log hase tu roi
aisi karni na kari, paache hase sab koi..

When born on earth, thou cried aloud,
others laughed in glee,
Do not in life do any such dead
That they will laugh at thee!!

Kabir records the universal phenomenon of every child crying on being born while all others present rejoice at the auspicious and happy occation. He warns that man should desist from doing evil deeds in life. If man persists in evil ways, no one will shed a tear on his death; it wil come as a welome relief to all he has tortured with his evil ways..

Not many takers I gather for Kabir. But what the heck.. this site should have atleast one thread dedicating his work.. so here I go even if I am the only one interested in his words.


aaye ekhi des the, utrii ekhi ghat,
hava laagi ju sansar kii, ho gaye barah baat

We all hail from the same land
and reach hear on earth
touched by the winds that blow here
each persues his on path.

Kabir says all origin of human being is the same (i.e from god) but after they are born on earth, they get infulenced by the ways of the world. These ways divide them from each other leading them to follow divergent paths.

kabir vyas katha karai , bheetar bhedai naahi
auron ko parmodhtaa, gaya muhar kamahi..

The pundit learned in scriptures
can deliver talks of advice
The words do never touch his heart
for others he does it for a price

One who is well versed in the scriptures can deliver learned lectures on them, but if the words do not touch his heart he will not benefit himself at all by them. He delivers lectures for mere mercinary considerations.

Sant Kabir

ek doha lijiye bahi...

Kahe surdas, jab tu aya es jag main jag hanse hum roye
Aise karni kar chalo hum hanse jag roye....

Pashu aur nari dono tadan ke adhikari....


Kahe Surdas, Ramdas ko sant mile hain Sailani ke kunda
Sant sada yah sachi mane zuthi mane Gunda....

Jai Ram Ji Ki

Achaa to ek aur lijiyee..
tara mandal basi kari, sasi badai khai
ude bhaya jab suurka , jyun tara chup jai

In the sky at night
the moon outshines the stars
At dawn as soon rises the sun
Like stars she disappears

The moon dominates the stars in the sky at night but as sun rays come with dawn, she pales and vanishes from sight.

Kabir implies that man should be aware of his real position and should not be dazzled by temporary prosperity. He should strive for real knowledge and not pseudo knowledge as the latter is of no value and it pales before real knowledge just as the moon does before the sun.

hindu mue raam kahi, musalmaan khudai
kabir kahi se jibtaa, duhu kaha na jai..

At death hindus chant name of rama
Muslims chant khuda's name
in their life time neither of them
does ever chant those names.

dukh me sumiran sab kare
sukh me kare na koi
Jo sukh me sumiran kare
Dukh kahe ko hoi?

Every one remembers god at times of crisis/sadness
no one remembers him at times of happiness and pleasure
If one remembers him at times of happiness and pleasure
How will crisis and sadness ever befall him?

Aisee baani boliye, man ka aapa khoy,
Auran ko sheetal karey, aap hi sheetal hoy.

Bura jo dekhn main chala, bura na milya koy,
jo mann dekha aapnaa, mujhsey bura na koy.


Dukh mein sumiran sab karein, sukh mein karey na koy,
jo sukh mein bhi sumiran karein, toh dukh kaahey ka hoy.

Oye Hoy

(His couplets always rhymed with HOY)
