Saint Kabir- 1

जैसे तिल में तेल है, ज्यों चकमक में आग
तेरा साईं तुझ में है, तू जाग सके तो जाग

The way there is oil in the sesame seeds, the way fire is in flint

Your God is within you, just if you can awake and realise it

He says like oil is in many seeds before it comes in the form of oil, God is everywhere, we just need to know, understand and be aware of it.

साईं इतनी दीजिए, जा में कुटुंब समाए
मैं भी भूखा न रहूं, साधू न भूखा जाए

He asks to God only to give him as much as sufficient in his home or necessary

That neither he remains hungry nor those who visit him with hope that he can help

He does not aspire for luxuries or not believe in gathering for the next generation rather he says that I need only that much that I can feed my family and those who come to me with a hope, I can support them in any way.

धीरे-धीरे रे मन, धीरे सब-कुछ होए
माली सींचे सौ घड़ा, ऋतु आए फल होए

If you have patience and keep working then everything will happen

The gardener keeps watering the plants but they give fruits only when the season comes

the same is the story of life that we have to keep working in the right direction and once the efforts are complete and the time is right we achieve the success.

माया मरी न मन मरा, मर-मर गए शरीर
आशा, तृष्णा ना मरी, कह गए दास कबीर

Neither the wealth dies nor the soul, only the body dies

Our dreams and lust never die, this was said by Saint Kabir

Means only our bodies die but the human values and ideas never die, therefore try to spread the good things in the world and teach good values to the new generation to make the world better and peaceful. His message connects to the present world too that do not make your kids just the machine to make money rather try make them Human being with empathy and will to serve the humanity.

Friends this will continue in the coming posts.
