Kabir Amritvani  |  Kabir Amritvani In English | Kabir Sakhi | Kabir K Dohe



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 

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


Kabir Vani, Kabir Wani, Kabir Duha, Kabir Books

Jab Tun Aaya Jagat Mein, Log Hanse Tu Roye Aise Karni Na Kari, Pache Hanse Sab Koye 
When you were born in this world Everyone laughed while you cried Conduct NOT yourself in manner such That they laugh when you are gone 

Kabir Man Nirmal Bhaya, Jaise Ganga Neer Pache Pache Har Phire, Kahat Kabir Kabir 
Kabir's mind got cleansed like the holy Ganges water Now everyone follows, saying Kabir Kabir 

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 

Jeevat Samjhe Jeevat Bujhe, Jeevat He Karo Aas Jeevat Karam Ki Fansi Na Kaati, Mue Mukti Ki Aas 
Alive one sees, alive one knows Thus crave for salvation when full of life Alive you did not cut the noose of binding actions Hoping liberation with death ! 

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 

Chinta Aisee Dakini, Kat Kaleja Khaye Vaid Bichara Kya Kare, Kahan Tak Dawa Lagaye 
Worry is the bandit that eats into one's heart What the doctor can do, what remedy to impart? 

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 

Kabira Kiya Kutch Na Hote Hai, Ankiya Sab Hoye Jo Kiya Kutch Hote Hai, Karta Aur Koye 
Says Kabir By my doing nothing happens What I don't does come to pass If anything happens as if my doing Then truly it is done by someone else 

Jyon Naino Mein Putli, Tyon Maalik Ghat Mahin Moorakh Log Na Janhin, Baahar Dhudhan Jahin 
Like the pupil in the eyes The Lord resides inside Ignorant do not know this fact They search Him outside 

Pehle Agan Birha Ki, Pachhe Prem Ki Pyas Kahe Kabir Tub Janiye, Naam Milan Ki Aaas 
First the pangs of separation Next grows the thirst for Love Says Kabir then only hope The union to materialize




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
