Kabir Dohe

Chalti Chakki Dekh Kar, Diya Kabira Roye

Do Paatan Ke Beech Mein,Sabit Bacha Na Koye


Watching the grinding stones, the Light Kabir Cries

Inside the Two Stones, no one survives

Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye

Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye


I went on the search for the Bad Guy, Bad Guy I couldn't find

When I searched my mind, Non one is Nastier then Me

Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ub

Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kub


Tomorrows work do today, today's work now

If the moment is lost, how will the work be done?

Aisee Vani Boliye, Mun Ka Aapa Khoye

Apna Tan Sheetal Kare, Auran Ko Sukh Hoye


Speak such words, you lose the minds Ego

Body remains composed, Others Find Peace

Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kutch Hoye

Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye


Slowly slowly stay my mind, Slowly everything happens

Gardner may water garden a hundred times, When the Season comes, there is fruit

Sayeen Itna Deejiye, Ja Mein Kutumb Samaye

Main Bhi Bhookha Na Rahun, Sadhu Na Bhookha Jaye


God, give me so, so much wealth, that my community is fed

I don't remain hungry, the Sadhu does not go hungry

Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor

Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Atidoor


If You are Big so what? Just like a date tree

No shade for travelers, fruit is hard to reach

Jaise Til Mein Tel Hai, Jyon Chakmak Mein Aag

Tera Sayeen Tujh Mein Hai, Tu Jaag Sake To Jaag


Like the Oil is inside the Seed, Just as the Fire is Inside the Flint Stone

Your God is Inside You, If you have the Power to Wake Up, then Wake Up

Mangan Maran Saman Hai, Mat Koi Mange Beekh

Mangan Se Marna Bhala, Yeh Satguru Ki Seekh


Begging is like dying, Let no one Beg

It is better to die than beg, this is the SatGuru's Message

Maya Mari Na Mun Mara, Mar Mar Gaye Shareer

Asha Trishna Na Mari, Keh Gaye Das Kabir


Neither Maya Died, Nor the Mind Died, Die and die again People/Bodies

Hope and delusion have not died, so said Das Kabir and left

Kabira Khara Bazaar Mein, Mange Sabki Khair

Na Kahu Se Dosti, Na Kahu Se Bair


Kabira Stands in the market place, Asks for everyones prosperity

Neither special friendship nor enmity for anyone

Kabir Man Nirmal Bhaya, Jaise Ganga Neer

Pache Pache Har Phire, Kahat Kabir Kabir


Kabir Washed His Mind Clean, Like The Holy Ganges River

Everyone follows behind, Saying Kabir, Kabir

Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua, Pandit Bhayo Na Koye

Dhai Aakhar Prem Ke, Jo Padhe so Pandit Hoye


Reading Books and Scriptures everyone died, No one became Pandit

Two and Half Words of Love, Who ever reads, Pandit he becomes

Gur Dhobi Sikh Kapda, Saboo Sirjan Har

Surti Sila Pur Dhoiye, Nikse Jyoti Apaar


Guru is the wash man, Sikh is the cloth , God the soap

Wash the mind thoroughly clean, Out Comes The Glow of Truth

Jeevat Samjhe Jeevat Bujhe, Jeevat He Karo Aas

Jeevat Karam Ki Fansi Na Kaati, Mue Mukti Ki Aas


Alive one sees, alive one knows, find your liberation while alive

If Alive you do not cut the noose of your attachments , how will there be liberation with death?

Akath Kahani Prem Ki, Kutch Kahi Na Jaye

Goonge Keri Sarkara, Baithe Muskae


Inexpressible is the story of Love , It goes without Saying

Like the dumb guy who eat sweet Sarkara, he only Smiles

Chinta Aisee Dakini, Kat Kaleja Khaye

Vaid Bichara Kya Kare, Kahan Tak Dawa Lagaye


Worry is such a Thief, it eats one's heart

What can the poor doctor do, How far will his medicine reach

Kabira Garv Na Keejiye, Uncha Dekh Aavaas

Kaal Paron Punyah Letna, Ouper Jamsi Ghaas


Kabir , Don't be so proud and vain, Looking at your high mansion

Tomorow you'll lie under feet, On top will grow Grass

Kabira Kiya Kutch Na Hote Hai, Ankiya Sab Hoye

Jo Kiya Kutch Hote Hai, Karta Aur Koye


On Kabir's saying nothing happens , What I don't do does come to pass

If anything happens as if my doing, It is done by someone else

Jyon Naino Mein Putli, Tyon Maalik Ghat Mahin

Moorakh Log Na Janhin, Baahar Dhudhan Jahin


Like the pupil is in the eyes , Your God lives inside you,

The ignorant don't know this, they search Him on the outside

Jab Tun Aaya Jagat Mein, Log Hanse Tu Roye

Aise Karni Na Kari, Pache Hanse Sab Koye


When you came in to this world , Everyone laughed while you cried

Don't do such work, That they laugh when you are gone

Pehle Agan Birha Ki, Pachhe Prem Ki Pyas

Kahe Kabir Tub Janiye, Naam Milan Ki Aaas


First the pain of separation, then the thirst for Love

Says Kabir, only then will you know Joy of the Union.

Aag Jo Lagi Samand Mein, Dhuan Na Pargat Hoye

So Jane Jo Jarmua, Jaki Lagi Hoye


The Ocean is on Fire, The Smoke is not Visible

He Knows Who Has Been there and been Burnt

Kabir So Dhan Sanchiye, Jo Aage Ko Hoye

Sees Charaye Potli, Le Jaat Na Dekhya Koye


Kabir, save the wealth that remains in this Moment

Departing with a bag of material wealth, no one has yet been seen.

Aasa Jive Jag Marey, Log Marey Mar Jayee

Soyee Sube Dhan Sanchate, So Ubrey Jey Khayee


Hope yet lives, the world dies, people die and die again

Perish yet hoarding wealth, spend and freedom attain

Ek Kahun To Hai Nahin, Do Kahun To Gaari

Hai Jaisa Taisa Rahe, Kahe Kabir Bichari


If I say one, It is not; If I say two, it will be a violation

Let 'It' be whatever 'It' is, so says Kabir contemplating

Kabir Yeh Ghar Prem Ka, Khala Ka Ghar Nahin

Sees Utaare Hath Kar, So Pasey Ghar Mahin


Kabir, this is the House of Love , Not the house of your Aunt

Who has dropped his barriers, He can pass in to the House

Maala To Kar Mein Phire, Jeebh Phire Mukh Mahin

Manua To Chahun Dish Phire, Yeh To Simran Nahin


The rosary rotating by the hand, the tongue twisting in the mouth,

With the mind wandering everywhere, this isn't meditation

Jab Mein Tha Tab Hari Nahin‚ Jab Hari Hai Mein Nahin

Sab Andhiyara Mit Gaya‚ Jab Deepak Dekhya Mahin


When I was, then Hari (God) was not, Now Hari is and I am not

All the darkness dissolved, When I saw the light within.

Moond Munddavat Din Gaye‚ Ajhun Na Miliya Raam

Raam Naam Kahu Kya Karey‚ Je Man Ke Aurey Kaam


Shaving the head Ages have passed, yet no union with God

Recitation of Gods Name is futile, when the mind is doing something else

Keson Kaha Bigadia, Je Moonde Sau Baar

Man Ko Kahe Na Moondiye, Jaamein Vishey Vikaar


What harm have the hair done, you shave them hundred times

Why not shave the mind, there grow unchecked countless poisonous thoughts

Kabir Soota Kya Kare, Koore Kaaj Niwaar

Jis Panthu Tu Chaalna, Soyee Panth Samwaar


Kabir, why do you sleep? Leave the useless tasks

Be focused on the path which you were meant to tread

Kabira Teri Jhompri Gal Katiyan Ke Paas

Jo Karenge So Bharenge Tu Kyon Bhayo Udaas


Kabir, Your Hut Is Next to the Butchers

Who does, he will face the consequnces, Why are you sad?
