Moko Kahan Dhundhere Bande - Sant Kabir Das
Moko Kahan Dhundhere Bande
Mein To Tere Paas Mein
Where do you search me?
I am with you
Na Teerath Mein, Na Moorat Mein
Na Ekant Niwas Mein
Not in pilgrimage, nor in icons
Neither in solitudes
Na Mandir Mein, Na Masjid Mein
Na Kabe Kailas Mein
Not in temples, nor in mosques
Neither in Kaba nor in Kailash
Na Mein Jap Mein, Na Mein Tap Mein
Na Mein Barat Upaas Mein
Not in prayers, nor in meditation
Neither in fasting
Na Mein Kiriya Karm Mein Rehta
Nahin Jog Sanyas Mein
Not in yogic postures
Neither in renunciation
Nahin Pran Mein Nahin Pind Mein
Na Brahmand Akas Mein
Neither in the vital force nor in the body
Not even in the ethereal space
Na Mein Prakuti Prawar Gufa Mein
Nahin Swasan Ki Swans Mein
Neither in the womb of Nature
Not in the breath of the breath
Khoji Hoye Turat Mil Jaoon
Ik Pal Ki Talas Mein
Seek earnestly and discover
In but a moment of search
Kahet Kabir Suno Bhai Sadho
Mein To Hun Viswas Mein
Says Kabir, Listen with care
Where your faith is, I am there.
Poetry of Kabir
Kabir is a very important figure in Indian history. He is unusual in that he is spiritually significant to Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims alike. Kabir openly criticized all sects and gave a new direction to the Indian philosophy. Kabir touches the soul, the conscience, the sense of awareness and the vitality of existence in a manner that is unequalled in both simplicity and style. It is for this reason that Kabir is held in high esteem all over the world. 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. Kabir has written much poetry and song. All of Kabir’s recorded verses are in Hindi. His lyrics are characterised by a free use of the vernacular, and is unfettered by the grammatical bonds of his day. It is this quality which has made his philosophy accessible to generations of Indians.
