Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua — Reading books everyone died

Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua, Pandit Bhayo Na Koye
Dhai Aakhar Prem Ke, Jo Padhe so Pandit Hoye

Translation

Reading books everyone died, none became any wise
One who reads the word of Love, only becomes wise

First of all 1000 salutes to Kabirji. These two lines are called “doha”, which is a specific form of writing poems. The poet writes his feelings in one “doha”, two lines.

In the above “doha” Kabirji tells the importance of love. All of us read many books, many of us have added number of degrees behind their name. Many of us would be earning a handsome amount. But how much lovely we are? If we don’t go to office will anyone in our staff miss us? Will our presence make the atmosphere meaningful? Are there anyone around us who will count upon us?

If answer to above questions and other such questions is NO then you should try to change yourself.

Kabirji is a saint who dared to tell everyone that merely reading vedas, books and becoming learned is not important. You should be loveable. After you die no one will remember for your knowledge, degrees you have acquired but for your loveable attitude. Only those will truely shed tears whom you have healed, touched and helped with love. Only those will keep you in your heart whom you have made smile. Only those will come to help you in your bad times whom you have supported with love and care when required.

So look at each deeds of your for the whole day and notice how loveable you are? Then decide how much you need to change yourself?

    • if you surrender yourself to any work (any book) it will give you the true and real sense. But most of the time we just read books because others would have told us, it would be good and we wish to complete the book as early as possible.

      Koti Koti Vandan to Kabirji (thousands salute to Kabirji)
