Kabeer ke Dohe

Standard

When I was younger, these dohas used to give me the necessary gyan… They r so simple…. 2 lines each and yet so profound!!! Found them on a site one day and well couldnt help but put them down here :)

Check out some of Kabeer Das’s famous dohe! 

कबीरा खड़ा बाज़ार में माम्गे सब की खैर
ना काहू से दोस्ती ना काहू से बैर!

बुरा जो देखन में चला, बुरा ना मिलया कोई,
जो मन खोजा आपना तो मुझ से बुरा ना कोई

चलती चाक्की देख के दिया कबीरा रोए
दुइ पाटन के बीच में साबुत बचा ना कोए

साँईं इतना दीजिये जामें कुटुम्ब समाये,
मैं भी भूखा ना रहूँ, साधू ना भूखा जाये

माया मरी ना मन मरा, मर मर गये शरीर,
आशा त्रिश्ना ना मरी, कह गये दास कबीर.

दुख में सुमिरन सब करें, सुख में करे ना कोये
जो सुख में सुमिरन करे, तो दुख काहे होये.

ऐसी वाणी बोलिये, मन का आपा खोये,
अपना तन शीतल करे, औरन को सुख होये.

धीरे धीरे रे मना धीरे सब कुछ होये,
माली सीन्चे सौ घड़ा, ऋतु आये फ़ल होये.

जाती ना पूछो साधु की, पूछ लीजिये ग्यान
मोल करो तलवार की पड़ी रेहेन जो मयान.

Thank you, wonderful readers, for your contributions. Adding some of them here:

साधू ऐसा चाहिए, जैसा सूप सुहाय
सर सर को गहि रहे, थोथा दे उडाय
 
आये हैं तो जायेंगे राजा रंक फ़कीर
एक सिंघासन चढ़ी चढ़े एक बंधे ज़ंजीर
 
दुर्बल को न सताइए जाकी मोटी हाय
बिन बीज के सोंस सो लोह भस्म हुयी जाए
 
माटी कहे कुम्हार को तू क्या रूंधे मोहे
इक दिन ऐसा होयेगा मैं रून्धुंगी तोहे
 
बड़ा हुआ तो क्या हुआ जैसे पेड़ खजूर
पंथी को छाया नहीं फल लागे अति दूर
 
तिनका कभू न निंदिये जो पवन तर होए
कभू उडी अँखियाँ परे तो पीर घनेरी होए
 
गुरु गोविन्द दोनों खड़े, काके लागून पाए
बलिहारी गुरु आपकी जिन गोविन्द दियो बताये
 
निंदक नियरे राखिये आंगन कुटी छबाय
बिन पानी साबन बिना निर्मल करे सुहाय
 
ज्यों नैनों में पुतली, त्यों मालिक घर माहीं
मूरख लोग न जानहिं बाहिर ढूधन जाहीं
 
माला फेरत जग भया, फिर न मन का फेर
कर का मनका डाली दे, मन का मनका फेर
 
सब धरती कागद करून, लेखनी सब बन राइ
सात समुंद की मासी करून, गुरु गुण लिखा न जाई
 
पानी में मीन प्यासी रे
मुझे सुन सुन आवे हासी रे
आत्मज्ञान बिना नर भटके
कोई काबा कोई कासी रे
कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो
सहज मिले अविनासी रे
 
रहना नहीं देस बेगाना है
यह संसार कागड़ की पुड़िया
बूंद पड़े घुल जाना है
Please keep writing some more to grow this collection :)

      • Mol(concentrate or look at,measure) karo talwar ki parhi rahen(vaise pada rahne de,just leave) Jo myan (outer cover)

        when you want to buy a talwar (sword),you have to look at its sharpness and study how effectively can it be used to cut (coz that s the purpose of it) instead of looking at the outer cover. In olden days, the kings used to keep their swords in cover which they tie around their waist.

      • kam talwari ki aana hai man ki nahi guru jo vi jat des dharma ka vi ho sakte unse aaf jat dharma mat puchhiye aafka unse sirf aatma gyan lena hai agar aaf rasteme vatakrahahai udar koi janakar mila to kya aaf unse uske jat pat tegana puchhte ho wa afna rasta puchhteho? isliye hame unse gyan leni hai jaise pani rakhne ke liye bottel ki jarurat hote hai us khuda ne hame samjaneke liye manusyeke sarir lena padthahai oh kisi vi muluk,jat ya sampradyama aa saktahai is liye kabir saheb ne samjaya hai mol karo talwarki

      • aisa vakya jo sirf do line me likha gaya ho aur jise padne par hriday me amrit ka bhav pragat ho

        DOHA-doha consist in two line sentences only

  9. Kabir ke Dohe to “Gaagar main Gyaan Kaa Saagar Hai” Highly complex thoughts expressed in a simple n effective way, that is the beauty of this genius.
    Thanx for doing this knoble job of spreading heavely bliss in this world.
    I request to all to send me complete poem. I love this poem very much. Some lines are:
    “ek din bhi jee, magar Taaj banakar jee,
    Atal Biswaas banakar jee, Amar yug gaan banakar jee,
    Mat Vihang ban, Aakaash bankar jee,
    Mat pujaari bar, swayam Bhagawaan banakar jee”
    –CharmingShaw

    • Respected sir/Madam,
      I also like this verse very much which one of the favorites of our CharmingShawji.only these four lines are capable enough to make even a deadbody stalk like a living man.Plz send me also the entire poem.I ardently implore you for this poems.

    • sant maharaj Kabeer saheb ki vaani mei jo seedhi seedhi baate likhi hein, veh puri tarah se jeevan par aadhaarit uss samay ki baate hein jub bhad-bhav aur logo mei ishwar ke dhyaan ko alag alag najar se dekhaa jaata tha., unhone apne saral shabdo mei sabhi ka sanshay door kiya., aur aaj har aur KABEER saaheb ke doho ki charchaa hei., unhi doho se hum ek duje ko sahi ka margdarshan waali baate karte hein

  13. बहुत खूब चुनाव किया है आप ने कबीर के दोहों का. जवाब नहीं, प्राण शर्मा साहेब का एक शेर है:

    “प्राण” सदियाँ ही बीत जाती हैं
    पैदा कब नित कबीर होता है.

  14. 1.’Kankar pathar jode key masjid layi banay,
    Ta chadi mullah bang dey kya bahira hua khuday.’
    2.’Jin dhunda tin paiyan gehray paani paith,
    main bapura budan dara raha kinarey baith.’
    3.’Kaal karey so aaj kar aj karey so ab,
    pal main parlay hoigi bahuri karoge kab.’
    My contribution Nova :). I remember these from my school days.I think they are by Kabir.

  15. @Dinesh K, Dinesh Soni: Thanks :)

    @Neeraj1950: dhanyawad… Bahut khoob!

    @Pr3rna: Hey thanks for that Prerna :) Will do some research and figure out if they are from Kabir…

  16. guys this blog is one of the best i ever found so just a little contribution from my side as well.

    Tinka Kabhu Na Nindiye Jo Pavan Tar Hoye,
    Kabhu Udi Ankhiyan Pare To Peer Ghaneri Hoye.

    Guru Govind Dono Khade, Kako Lagoon Paay,
    Balihari Guru Aapki, Jin Govind Diyo Batay.

    Nindak Niyare Rakhiye Angan Kuti Chhabay,
    Bin Pani Saaban Bina Nirmal Kare Subhay.

    Jyon Nainon mein Putali, Tyon Malik Ghat Mahin,
    Moorakh Log Na Janhin, Bahir Dhoondhan Jahin.

    Mala Ferat Jag Bhaya, Mita Na Mann Ka Fer,
    Kar Ka Manka Chhod De, Mann Ka Manka Fer.

  17. I have come across this group only today . I feel that we should share more and more DOHA’s on this group ( kabirs doha’s with meaning ,),Though I do not have any stock of DOHA’s I would definitely like to read these and understand meaning ,as these dohas have a great meaning in it,Regards

  18. Few Kabir Saheb doha’s-

    Kabir suta kya kare, sute hote akaaz,
    brahma ka aasan digyo, suni kaal ki gaaz.

    Paanwan bhumi naapte, samudra karte faal,
    haanthan parwat tolte, tehi dhari khayo kaal.

    Japa mare ajapa mare, anhad hu mari jaaye,
    surati samani shabd main, tako kaal na khaye.

    Jantra mantra sab jhooth hain, mat bharmo jag koye,
    saar-shabd jane bina, kaaga hans na hoye.

    Saheb sabka baap hai , beta kisi ka nahi,
    jo beta hoke avtare , wo to saheb nahi.

  19. @Awnish Singh Thakur: Thanks so much Awnish. And thanks for the contribution!!

    @Hariprasad: Yes We should. Please contribute :)

    @Raj: Beautiful! thanks :)

  20. I am from mauritius n i dn`t know sanskrit.I will sit for my hindi literature exams on november.Can anyone tell me where can i get the translation of kabir das poem sakhi sudha from hindi to english.Thanks in advance.But be quick.

  21. Sab dharti Kagad karoon, Lekhani sab Ban rai;
    Saat Samund ki Masi karoon, Guru Gun likha na jai;

    u can add this in Kabir das ke dohe collections, which talks about Guru.
    U cannot write Guru gun, even if you make the whole earth as paper, seven seas s ink and all trees into pens., Such is guru ki mahima;

  22. I love those dohas very much. I could build a positive attitude with the help of these dohas which i keep repeating right from my childhood. I could discipline myself as well as my students too. Thanks for these dohas.

  23. Dear

    I am very confused about the heard the doha as follow:

    GURU GOBIND DOU KHADE KAKE LAGUN PAYA
    BALIHARI GUR AAPNE, GOVIND DIYON BATAY.

    Would you please explain me the last word, whether it is BATAY OR MILAYA.

    Thanks & regards

    BS Rawat
    (Utttrakhand)

    • Mr Rawat,

      The doha means “Both the God and the Teacher are standing in front of me, whose feet should I touch? I should touch Teacher’s feet who showed me the way to God”

      The last word “Batay” means showed or told.

      • Will you provide the doha that has meaning like Teacher help the student just like a pot maker who force the pot from out side and give a support from inside.

  24. Here is one for all of you… I have many but to do not have time to write them all… I’ll try to post as many as I can…

    Here is with the transalation in English…

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    kahai kabeer sunhu ray santahu khayt hee karahu nibayraa.
    Says Kabeer, listen, O Saints: settle your accounts in this farm.

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    dayhee gaavaa jee-o Dhar mahta-o baseh panch kirsaanaa.
    The body is a village, and the soul is the owner and farmer; the five farm-hands live there.

    nainoo naktoo sarvanoo raspat indree kahi-aa na maanaa. ||1||
    The eyes, nose, ears, tongue and sensory organs of touch do not obey any order. ||1||

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    baabaa ab na basa-o ih gaa-o.
    O father, now I shall not live in this village.

    gharee gharee kaa laykhaa maagai kaa-ith chaytoo naa-o. ||1|| rahaa-o.
    The accountants summoned Chitar and Gupat, the recording scribes of the conscious and the unconscious, to ask for an account of each and every moment. ||1||Pause||

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    Dharam raa-ay jab laykhaa maagai baakee niksee bhaaree.
    When the Righteous Judge of Dharma calls for my account, there shall be a very heavy balance against me.

    panch kirsaanvaa bhaag ga-ay lai baaDhi-o jee-o darbaaree. ||2||
    The five farm-hands shall then run away, and the bailiff shall arrest the soul. ||2||

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    kahai kabeer sunhu ray santahu khayt hee karahu nibayraa.
    Says Kabeer, listen, O Saints: settle your accounts in this farm.

    ab kee baar bakhas banday ka-o bahur na bha-ojal fayraa. ||3||7||
    O Lord, please forgive Your slave now, in this life, so that he may not have to return again to this terrifying world-ocean. ||3||7||

    • hey i have been thinking that dohe meaning a two line phrase…may be i was wrong..or did kabir write even single lines…i thought they were only dohe
      i remember reading that kabir was born hindu.but brought up buy musalman weaver family..he was illiterate.he could not read or write. he used to just recite them and these were documented by people later on..

  25. i like kabir doha. साँईं इतना दीजिये जामें कुटुम्ब समाये,
    मैं भी भूखा ना रहूँ, साधू ना भूखा जाये

    KABIR KE DOHE
    me ek-ek shabd bahu mulya RATNO se piroya hua hai.
    Jo suroo me (pahale) inki shabdon ki CHAMAK thi wo aaj bhi wahi chamak barkaraar hai aor sadevya hi prakaashmay bankar apna kiran bikherata rahega.
    Kyon ki
    inke DOHE prasn bhi hai
    aor
    uss prasn ka uttar bhi aaienaa ke jaisa jhalakta rahtaa hai.

  29. kha gaye kabir…kabir allways misterious person… …like god !!….Hindus muslim sikh eesai..sabke dilo me baste hai Kabir….

  30. Hi can anybody help me to complete this dohs…
    Kabir jako khojte soi paya gair soi phir ke tu……………………..

  31. Superb….school ki yaad aagai yaar,school mai kabhi pade nahi ab icha jagrat hui,kash tabhi google search ka bhi lesson hota.

  32. कबीर जी कहते हैँ कि दुनियाँ मेँ धर्म ग्रन्थ तो बहुत पढे जा रहे हैँ और समझा जा रहा है कि हम बड़े मौलवी हैँ हम बड़े पँडित है हम धर्म ग्रन्थोँ का रोज अध्यन करते हैँ और झूठा अभिमान किया जा रहा है क्योँकि धर्म ग्रन्थोँ मेँ तो प्यार का पाठ पढ़ाया जा रहा है और उस प्यार का पाठ ही नहीँ पढा जिसे पढ़ने के लिए धर्म ग्रन्थ कह रहे हैँ तो फिर काईके पँडित हुए और जो सभी से प्यार करता है वही पँडित है

  33. hey derz one mre doha here written by our grt kabir das ji….

    “maya deepak nar patang,bhrami bhrami iwen pandat.
    kahe kbir guru gyan te, ek aadh ubrant…”

  34. निंदक नियरे राखिये आंगन कुटी छबाय
    बिन पानी साबन बिना निर्मल करे सुहाय

    WHT IS “SABAN” IN THIS DOHA ? IS IT SOAP OR SOMETHING ELSE — IN THE TIME OF KABIR DAS — I THINK SOAP WAS NOT INVENTED ??????

    pmallied@gmail.com

  35. Sant Kabir das ji ke dohe sunana ek amrut anubhav hai ganga nadi ke lahro ke saman unke shabd kabhi dharti par se aanant me kabhi pahuchte hai pata hi nahi chalta hai

  36. I want to gave answer of “chalti chaki dekh kar diya kabira roye do patan k beech mai sabut bachha na koi”……………………..but we forget……………………………”chaki chaki sab kahe kili kahe na koi jo kili k sang mai bal na banka hoe”.
