Pothi padh padh jag mua, Pandit bhaya na koye|

Dhai akshar prem ka, Padhe so pandit hoye||

Meaning:- Kabir Ji explained in order to teach Hindus that the Real Pandit is someone else. There are many who spent their lives learning books but none became wise. Only by learning a few letters of spiritual love can ensure Salvation (Moksha); one can become wise. 

Kabir, paatr kupaatr vichaar kar, bhiksha daan jo let।
Neech akarmi soon ka, daan maha duhkh det।।

Kabir Couplets in English: Meaning: It is believed that a saint or Guru should only accept charity and alms from their disciples. Accepting wealth from wrongdoers or unrighteous people can bring them unhappiness.

Kabir, maarg chalai adho gati, chaar haath maanhi dekh।
Par tariya par dhan na chahai, samajh dharm ke lekh।।

Meaning: When walking on the path of devotion, it is advisable to keep the gaze downward. As a devotee walks, his focus should be fixed at a distance of four hands, which is about six feet ahead. While contemplating the knowledge of religious deeds, it is important not to cast covetous glances at other women or other people’s wealth.

Kabir, maan apaman sam kar janai, tajai jagat ki aash।
chaah rahit sansy rahit, harsh shok nahin taas।।

Kabir Couplets in English: Meaning: It is essential to ignore any insults directed towards a devotee, regardless of who delivers them. Instead, we should have compassion for the person’s intellect and not let their words affect us. Similarly, we must avoid becoming attached to receiving respect from others, as it may interfere with our theology. It is crucial to remain content and view both profit and loss as blessings from God.

Kabir, bhakti daan kiya nahi, ab rah kaas ki ot।
Maar peet praan nikalahi, jam todenge hoth।।

Meaning: If you have not connected with a Guru, devoted yourself to a higher power, or given to charity, then under whose protection will you be saved? The messengers of Yama will fight and beat you without any regard, causing your lips to crack i.e. will beat you mercilessly.

Kabir, kshama saman na tap, sukh nahin santosh saman।
Trishna saman nahi byadhi koyi, dharm na daya samaan।।

Kabir Couplets in English:Meaning: According to Almighty God Kabir Ji, forgiving is the most significant form of penance. No other penance can match its importance. Similarly, contentment is the ultimate pleasure, and nothing can equal it. The suffering caused by the desire to acquire something is unparalleled, and no other suffering can match it. Finally, kindness is the most virtuous deed, and no other virtue can compare to it.

Kabir, yog (bhakti) ke ang panch hai, sanyam manan ekaant।
Vishay tyag naam ratan, hoye moksh nishchint।।

Kabir Couplets in English: Meaning: Devotion comprises four essential elements. The first element is abstinence, which requires exercising control in every action. A devotee must exercise control over sensual pleasures, collecting money, speaking, eating, and drinking. This involves speaking less, avoiding vices, and focusing on worshipping God while pondering on God’s teachings and discourses. By following these rules and obeying the principles of worship, a person can achieve salvation.

Kabir, raaj tajana sahaj hai, Sahaj triya ka neh।
Maan badayi irshya, durlabh tajana ye।।

Meaning: Due to a lack of spiritual knowledge, some fatal vices such as superiority and jealousy surround human beings. Superiority arises when an individual’s position or wealth leads to arrogance, causing them to demand respect. These two evils, arrogance due to superiority and jealousy, blind people and they find it hard to let go of them. One can renounce a kingdom or leave a relationship, but abandoning these vices is difficult.

Kabir, jaan boojh saachchi tajai, kare jhooth se neh।
taaki sangat he prabhu, svapan mein bhee na dey।।

Meaning: According to Supreme God Kabir, a person who sees evidence with his own eyes yet continues to accept lies is considered to be wicked. Such a person should not come to me in my dreams, as their behaviour is detestable. Trying to discuss true spiritual knowledge with such an individual would be futile.

Indra-kuber, eesh kee padavi, Brahma varun dharmaraya।
Vishnu Nath ke pur ko jakar, bahur aputha aaya।।

Kabir Couplets in English: Meaning: Through the worship of Kaal Brahm, a seeker can attain the position of Indra, who is the king of heaven, also known as Devraj and Surpati. Indra also governs the Ministry of Rain or the irrigation department. The seeker who attains this position can enjoy the pleasures of being the king of heaven for 72 quartets or 72 chaturyugas. In one day of Brahma Ji, which consists of one thousand eight chaturyugas, 14 souls get to experience the position of Indra based on their virtues and deeds. However, it should be noted that enjoying the position of Indra ultimately results in the soul being reborn as a donkey.

Koti janm tu raja kinha, miti na man ki aasha।
Bhikshuk hokar dar-dar haandya, mila na nirgun raasa।।

Meaning:- Oh human! You have accomplished the most difficult worship of Kaal (Brahm). You left your house and lived in the forest, and then roamed from house to house in villages and towns. The devotees in the forest would travel to nearby villages to receive alms. If one household could not provide for them, they would seek food from other households and return to the forest. At times, the devotees would ask for alms one day and subsist for two or three days. They would wrap chapatis in thin cloth handkerchiefs called “chhalana” and tie them to tree branches. Once the chapatis dried up, they would soak them in water and consume them after they softened.

This way, they saved time that would have otherwise been wasted in searching for alms daily and dedicated it to the worship of Kaal Brahm. Their aim was to attain complete salvation by renouncing the cycle of birth and death through intense penance as described in the Vedas and folk tales. However, due to the absence of an enlightened saint, they were unaware of the secret knowledge known as Tatvgyan or Nirgun Rasa.

Man tu chal re sukh ke saagar, Jahan shabd sindhu ratnaagar।
Koti janm tohe bhramat hoge, kuchh nahin haath laga re।
Kukar shukar khar bhaya baure, kaua hans buga re।।

Meaning:- The Almighty God Kabir Ji explained the Sukhsham Vedas to Sant Garibdas Ji, a virtuous soul from Jhajjar district in the Haryana province. Through Sant Garib Das, God Kabir inspired people worldwide to embrace true scripture-based worship to attain eternal salvation. Sant Garib Das used his soul and mind as a medium to describe the suffering in Kaal Brahm’s domain and the bliss of Satlok to the masses.

Man tu chal re sukh ke saagar” is a phrase that signifies the journey towards the eternal supreme abode, where the “Shabad” or word of God is indestructible. Satlok is the mine of salvation, and it is an indus of eternity. Despite your devotion in the world of Kaal Brahm, you may have been wandering from one birth to another because you have yet to find an enlightened saint who can guide you towards scripture-based worship.

Shankhon lahar Mehar ki upajein, Kahar nahin jahan koi।
Das Garib achal avinashi, Sukh ka saagar soyi।।

Kabir Couplets in English: Meaning: As an author, I sometimes experience a surge of excitement when I am alone, which makes me feel like everyone is a part of me. Despite being hurt by someone, I do not feel any hatred towards them; instead, I have compassion for everyone. This feeling only lasts for a few minutes and is known as a surge of mercy. In the eternal abode, also known as Satlok, every living being experiences immense joy.

The soul feels numerous surges of mercy there, but when it fades away, I go back to feeling sad, thinking about things like why someone said something hurtful or why someone isn’t good. This feeling is known as a surge of havoc or sorrow. In Satlok, there are countless surges of mercy, and there is no awful sorrow there.

His life will be successful by doing devotion, and the disease will be cured too. Similarly, if a prostitute (daughter-sister) is inspired to do devotion, attend spiritual sermons, then she has faith in God. If she listens to the spiritual sermons, then she will get rid of evil. Her welfare will be done. Vices would be eradicated from society. How will she realise her sinful deeds if she does not attend the spiritual sermon?

taravar se patta toot gire, bahur na laage daar ll

Meaning:- God Kabir has explained that “Oh human beings! This human birth (female/male) is obtained after ages with difficulty. One doesn’t get it often.” While living in this body, do good deeds and devotion to God. Otherwise, once this body dies you will not be able to achieve the same condition again that is obtain the human body. Just as a leaf plucked from a tree, it does not grow again on the same branch. Therefore, do not waste the opportunity of this human body.

Kabir Dohe in English: Meaning:- God Kabir Ji is saying that “O innocent human! I wonder with what hope you are alive without taking initiation from a guru? Neither this body is yours, it will also be left. Then how is the property yours?” Those who do not understand that without true worship there is no place for the soul anywhere, then they are not human i.e., they are stones. Their intellect is of no use.

kabeer, nau man soot ulajhiya, rishi rahe jhakh maar l

Satguru aisa sulajha de, ulajhe na doojee baar ll

If the thread breaks while unraveling, the cloth would get knotted. No one used to buy knotted clothes. That is why God Kabir has given a perfect example of weavers and explained that no one used to unravel the heavily tangled yarn. Spiritual knowledge is like the same nine maunds i.e. 360 kg of tangled yarn, which the Satguru (enlightened saint) i.e. Tatvdarshi Sant will unravel in such a way that it will not get entangled again.

kabeer, maanush janm paay kar, nahin ratain hari naam l

jaise kua jal bina, banavaaya kya kaam ll

Meaning:- If one does not do devotion in human life, then that life is as if a beautiful well is dug. If there is no water or if the water in it is saline (not potable), even though its name may be well, the qualities are not those of the well. Similarly, if a person does not do devotion, he is also called a human, but he does not have the qualities of a human being.

That’s why it incurs crores of sins to harass a saint. Just like having committed countless (infinite) murders.

So, Kabir Ji said that these fake practices are told by pandits in order to earn money. By shaving one’s head, one cannot attain God. If it could be possible to attain Moksha (Salvation) through this, then the sheeps would attain heaven first as their hairs are frequently shaved off to make wool from their fur.

Ek jyoti mein se sab utpanna, Kaun baaman kaun suda||
