kabir

 

kabir_stampKabir Das (1398 – 1518) (kabir, Arabic for “great”, dasa, Sanskrit for “slave” or “servant”) was born in the year 1398AD, 71 years before Guru Nanak. He is one of the medieval Indian saints of the Bhakti and Sufi movement whose compositions figure in Sikh Scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib. From among all of them, Kabir’s contribution is the largest. Kabir lived in the fifteenth century after Christ, which was a time of great political upheaval in India. As is true of many contemporary religious teachers, very little reliable information concerning Kabir’s life is available, though there is no dearth of legend around him. Kabir’s life was centred around Kashi, also called Banaras(Varanasi). Kabir through his couplets not only reformed the mindset of common villagers and low caste people but gave them self-confidence to question Brahmins.

Kabir believed in self-surrender and God’s bhakti. He suggests inward worship and remembrance of God. For him, true worship is only inwards. According to Kabir, all life is an interplay of two spiritual principles. One is the personal soul (Jivatma) and the other is God (Paramatma). It is Kabir’s view that salvation is the process of bringing into union these two divine principles.

Kabir composed no systematic treatise, rather his work consists of many short didactic poems, often expressed in terse vigorous language in the form of Padas, Dohas, and Ramainis (forms of poetry in Indian languages). Kabir has written much poetry and song. All of Kabir’s recorded verses are in Hindi. His lyrics are characterized by a free use of the vernacular, and is unfettered by the grammatical bonds of his day. Another beauty of Kabir’s poetry is that he picks up situations that surround our daily lives. Thus, even today, Kabir’s poetry is relevant and helpful in both social and spiritual context. Following Kabir means understanding one’s inner self, realizing oneself, accepting oneself as is, and becoming harmonious with one’s surroundings. It is this quality which has made his philosophy accessible to generations of Indians.

Many legends abound about the birth, life and death of Kabir, one of India’s most quoted poets and mystics. His birth itself is shrouded in mystery, some say he was the son of a Brahman widow, others that he was of virgin birth, what is known though is that he was brought up in a family of muslim weavers. Legend has it that he was actually the son of a Brahmin widow who abandoned him and that he was found by a Muslim weaver named Niru, who adopted the boy and taught him the weaver’s trade.

He was never formally educated and was almost completely illiterate. According to legend, the only word that he ever learned how to write was “Rama”.

When he died, his Hindu and Muslim followers started fighting about the last rites. When they lifted the cloth covering his body, they found flowers instead. The Muslim followers buried their half and the Hindu cremated their half. In Maghar, his tomb and samadhi still stand side by side.

Kabir openly criticized all sects and gave a new direction to the Indian philosophy. This is due to his straight forward approach that has a universal appeal. It is for this reason that Kabir is held in high esteem all over the world. To call Kabir a universal Guru is not an over exaggeration. To me personally, the very name Kabir means Guru’s Grace.

Kabir Ke Dohe.

बूरा जो देखन मै चला, बूरा न मिलया कोय ।
जो मन खोजा आपना, मुझसे बूरा न कोय ॥
दुख म सुमिरन सब करे, सुख मे करे न कोय ।
जो सुख मे सुमिरन करे, दुख कहे को होय ॥
काल करे सो आज कर, आज करे सो अब।
पल में परलय होएगी, बहुरि करोगे कब ॥
पोथि पढ पढ ज़ग मुआ, पंडित भया न कोय ।
ढाई आखर प्रेम का पढे सो पंडित होय ॥
शब्द बराबर धन नहीं जो कोई जाने बोल ।
हीरा तो दामों मिले, शब्द मोल ना तोल ॥
क्षमा बडन को उचित है, छोटन को उत्पात ।
का विष्नु का घटी गया, जो भृगु मारी लात॥
सुख मे सुमिरन ना किया, दु:ख में करते याद ।
कह कबीर ता दास की, कौन सुने फरियाद ॥
दुःख में सुमिरन सब करे सुख में करै न कोय ।
जो सुख में सुमिरन करे दुःख काहे को होय ॥
माया मरी न मन मरा, मर-मर गए शरीर ।
आशा तृष्णा न मरी, कह गए दास कबीर ॥
चलती चक्की देख के, दिया कबीरा रोय ।
दो पाटन के बीच में, साबूत बचा ना कोय ॥
धर्म किये धन ना घटे, नदी घटे ना नीर ।
अपनी आंखन देख लो, कह गये दास कबीर ॥
धीरे-धीरे रे मना, धीरे सब कुछ होय ।
माली सींचे सौ घड़ा, ॠतु आए फल होय ॥
साँई इतना दीजिए जामें कुटुंब समाय ।
मैं भी भूखा ना रहूँ साधु न भुखा जाय॥
माटी कहे कुम्हार से, तु क्या रौंदे मोय ।
एक दिन ऐसा आएगा, मैं रौंदूगी तोय ॥
बडा हुआ तो क्या हुआ जैसे पेड़ खजूर।
पंथी को छाया नही फल लागे अति दूर ॥
सात समंदर की मसि करौं लेखनि सब बनराइ।
धरती सब कागद करौं हरि गुण लिखा न जाइ॥
साधु ऐसा चाहिए जैसा सूप सुभाय।
सार-सार को गहि रहै थोथा देई उडाय॥
चाह मिटी, चिंता मिटी मनवा बेपरवाह ।
जिसको कुछ नहीं चाहिए वह शहनशाह॥
Akath Kahani Prem Ki गुरु गोविंद दोनों खड़े, काके लागूं पाँय ।
बलिहारी गुरु आपनो, गोविंद दियो मिलाय ॥
रात गंवाई सोय के, दिवस गंवाया खाय ।
हीरा जन्म अमोल था, कोड़ी बदले जाय ॥
साधू गाँठ न बाँधई उदर समाता लेय।
आगे पाछे हरी खड़े जब माँगे तब देय॥
उठा बगुला प्रेम का तिनका चढ़ा अकास।
तिनका तिनके से मिला तिन का तिन के पास॥
Chinta Aisee Dakini
जाति न पूछो साधु कि, पूछ लीजिये ञान ।
मोल करो तलवार का, पड़ा रहन दो मयान ॥
तिनका कबहुँ ना निंदये, जो पाँव तले होय ।
कबहुँ उड़ आँखो पड़े, पीर घानेरी होय ॥
कबीरा ते नर अँध है, गुरु को कहते और ।
हरि रूठे गुरु ठौर है, गुरु रूठे नहीं ठौर ॥
Jaise Til Mein Tel Hai जो तोको काँटा बुवै ताहि बोव तू फूल।
तोहि फूल को फूल है वाको है तिरसुल॥
माला फेरत जुग भया, फिरा न मन का फेर ।
कर का मन का डार दे, मन का मनका फेर ॥
Aisee Vani Boliye Ek Kahun To Hai Nahin Maala To Kar Mein Phire
Gur Dhobi Sikh Kapda Aasa Jive Jag Mare Kabir Yeh Ghar Prem Ka
Jab Tun Aaya Jagat Mein Kabir So Dhan Sanchiye Kabir Maala Kaath Kee
Jyon Naino Mein Putli Aag Jo Lagi Samand Mein Jab Mein Tha Tab Hari Nahin
Jeevat Samjhe Jeevat Bujhe Pehle Agan Birha Ki Kabir Kiya Kutch Na Hote Hai
Mangan Maran Saman Hai Kabira Khara Bazaar Mein Moond Munddavat Din Gaye
Kabir Man Nirmal Bhaya Keson Kaha Bigadia
Kabir Soota Kya Kare Kabira Teri Jhompri Kabir Soyee Soorma
कंकड पत्थर जोरि के मस्जिद लई बनाय।
ता पर मुल्ला बाँग दे क्या बहरा हुआ खुदाय ॥
पाहन पूजे हरि मिले, तो मैं पूजौं पहार।
याते ये चाकी भली, पीस खाय संसार॥
Kabira Garv Na Keejiye Kabira Garv Na Keejiye – 2 कबीरा ते नर अँध है, गुरु को कहते और ।हरि रूठे गुरु ठौर है, गुरु रूठे नहीं ठौर ॥
