Six two liners of the Saint Kabir

Six  two  liners  of  the  Saint  Kabir

Kabīr (c. 1440 – c. 1518) was a mystic and a great saint of India, whose writings have greatly influenced the Bhakti movement.
The name Kabir comes from Arabic al-Kabīr which means "The Great". [Wikipedia]
A few of his selected couplets of him are produced below. No, not translated by me.
1]
Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor
Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Ati door

In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree
No shade for travelers, fruit is hard to reach !

2]
Kabira Khara Bazaar Mein, Mange Sabki Khair
Na Kahu Se Dosti, Na Kahu Se Bair

Kabira in the market place, begs for the well being of all.
Has no friendship with anyone, no enmity either !

3]
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 ?
4]
Chaah miti, chinta miti, manwa beparwaah
Jisko kuch nahi chahiye, woh Shahenshah
if your wishes ends, than your anxiety and trouble will also end,
And your mind will be fearless.
One who doesn‘t need anything, he is the real king.
5]
Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua, Pandit Bhayo Na Koye
Dhai Aakhar Prem Ke, Jo Padhe so Pandit Hoye

The people read books until they died,
None became anymore wise
One who reads [and understands]
The meaning of the word Love,
Only he becomes wise !

6]
Aisee Vani Boliye, Mun Ka Aapa Khoye
Apna Tan Sheetal Kare, Auran Ko Sukh Hoye
Speak such words, sans ego's ploy
You remain cool, giving the listener joy!
Please give your feedback.

    Yes lani. One gets too many valuable teachings from them. I am trying to just introduce you all to only the tip of the iceberg.
    You may have to work further if you like some poet or saint.
    Thanks.

    Just a suggestion, but perhaps you could form a group of your own since your blogs are rather long and you blog more than once a day so as not to take up pages on the blog log. Then those that like to read or follow your blogs can join your group.

    Point taken Suzan 1957. I have published about 13 in March because I was on a sort of vacation.
    The free members as per the policy of the site can perhaps not join the groups. Thanks anyway !
