Kabir Ke Dohe 3 - Let us remember Kabir on the auspicious occasion of Guru Pournima.

Desire remains even if one dies. A person who expects pleasures through his wealth is tied in a bondage. A person who spends his wealth for the well being of others is liberated from the bondage.

One who does not understand what is said once and shouts back on being told twice, should be left in his condition without giving any suggestions.

If one wants to establish place in the minds of others then one should be ego-less, full of love and without malice.

Hair did no wrong. Why shaving the head time and again. Why not shave the mind where many weeds and impurities have grown.

Between the grinding stones of cravings and aversions the whole world is being crushed. Kabir weeps at the plight of the world as none is able to see the truth.

Kabir purified his mind and made it as pure as Ganga. Now everyone is after him saying 'Kabir Kabir'.

Everyone contemplates carefully in bad times. If one is not intoxicated in good times then there wont be any bad time.

Admire the diamond that can bear the hits of a hammer. Many deceptive preachers, when critically examined, turn out to be false. [Here diamond is siddhanta (the basic principles or doctrine).An experienced diamond cutter can hit the diamond using a chisel so that the chips will break off as expected. A diamond because if its crystalline structure tends to break off at specific angles. Similarly the true doctrine would come out shining when it is critically examined].

Don't open your diamonds in a vegetable market. Tie them in bundle and keep them in your heart, and go your own way. [Don't discuss gyan (knowledge) with those who can not understand it].

A diamond was laying in the street covered with dirt. Many fools passed by. Someone who knew diamonds picked it up. [Those who understand gyan-siddhanta (true knowledge/principles), pause to acquire it].

  1. Kabir Das had been a great legend in Indian History. His Dohe will be remembered always.

    बुरा जो देखन मैं चला, बुरा न मिलिया कोय।
    जो दिल खोजा आपना, मुझसा बुरा न कोय
