  • Dohas (Couplets) I

    Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kutch Hoye
    Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye

    Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens
    Gardner may water a hundred buckets, fruit arrives only in its season

    Sayeen Itna Deejiye, Ja Mein Kutumb Samaye
    Main Bhi Bhookha Na Rahun, Sadhu Na Bhookha Jaye

    Give so much O God, suffice to envelop my clan
    I should not suffer cravings, nor the visitor goes unfed

    Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor
    Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Atidoor

    In vain is the eminence, 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 seed contains the oil, fire in flint stone
    Your heart seats the Divine, realize if you can

    Kabira Khara Bazaar Mein, Mange Sabki Khair
    Na Kahu Se Dosti, Na Kahu Se Bair

    Kabira in the market place, wishes welfare of all
    Neither friendship nor enmity with anyone at all

    Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua, Pandit Bhayo Na Koye
    Dhai Aakhar Prem Ke, Jo Padhe so Pandit Hoye

    Reading books everyone died, none became any wise
    One who reads the words of Love, only becomes wise

    Dukh Mein Simran Sab Kare, Sukh Mein Kare Na Koye
    Jo Sukh Mein Simran Kare, Tau Dukh Kahe Ko Hoye

    In anguish everyone prays to Him, in joy does none
    To One who prays in happiness, how sorrow can come


    Dohas (Couplets) I

    Chalti Chakki Dekh Kar, Diya Kabira Roye
    Dui Paatan Ke Beech Mein,Sabit Bacha Na Koye

    Looking at the grinding stones, Kabir laments
    In the duel of wheels, nothing stays intact.

    Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye
    Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye

    searching for the wicked, met not a single one
    When searched myself, "I" found the wicked one

    Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ub
    Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kub

    Tomorrows work do today, today's work anon
    if the moment is lost, when will the work be done

    Aisee Vani Boliye, Mun Ka Aapa Khoye
    Apna Tan Sheetal Kare, Auran Ko Sukh Hoye

    Speak such words, sans ego's ploy
    Body remains composed, giving the listener joy
  • kabir Doha

    Gur Dhobi Sikh Kapda, Saboo Sirjan Har
    Surti Sila Pur Dhoiye, Nikse Jyoti Apaar

    Guru the washer man, disciple is the cloth
    The name of God liken to the soap
    Wash the mind on foundation firm
    To realize the glow of Truth  ||

    Akath Kahani Prem Ki, Kutch Kahi Na Jaye
    Goonge Keri Sarkara, Baithe Muskae

    Inexpressible is the story of Love
    It cannot be revealed by words
    Like the dumb eating sweet-meat
    Only smiles, the sweetness he cannot tell ||

    Kabira Garv Na Keejiye, Uncha Dekh Aavaas
    Kaal Paron Bhuin Letna, Ooper Jamsi Ghaas

    Says Kabir
    Don't be so proud and vain
    Looking at your high mansion
    Death makes one lie on bare land
    And grass will grow thereon ||

    Kabira Garv Na Keejiye, Kaal Gahe Kar Kes
    Na Jaane Kit Mare Hai, Kya Des Kya Pardesh

    Says Kabir
    Don't be so proud and vain
    The clutches of Time are dark
    Who knows where shall it kill
    Whether at home or abroad ||

  • Illusion and Reality
    Jo Dise So To Hai Nahin,
    Hai So Kaha Na Jayee ||
    Bin Dekhe Parteet Na Aave,
    Kahe Na Koyee Patiyana ||
    Samajh Hoye To Rabeen Cheenho,
    Achraj Hoye Ayana ||
    Koi Dhyave Nirakar Ko,
    Koi Dhyave Aakaara ||
    Ja Bidhi In Dono Te Nyara,
    Jane Jananhara ||
    Woh Raag To Likhia Na Jayee
    Matra Lakhe Na Kana ||
    Kahat Kabir So Padhe Na Parlay,
    Surat Nirat Jin Jana||


    English Translation

    What is seen is not the Truth
    What is cannot be said
    Trust comes not without seeing
    Nor understanding without words
    The wise comprehends with knowledge
    To the ignorant it is but a wonder
    Some worship the formless God
    Some worship His various forms
    In what way He is beyond these attributes
    Only the Knower knows
    That music cannot be written
    How can then be the notes
    Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion
