Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala
Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye
Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye
I searched for the crooked, met not a single one
When searched myself, "I" found the crooked one
This doha deals with our perception behavior and tendencies. It
has been invariably noticed that we tend to find fault with someone
else for our situations and circumstances. Our "I", the
ego, always tries to put blame on others. Non-awareness of our own
self is the cause of this attitude. Resultantly, we find ourselves
being busy in criticizing and condemning others and conveniently
term them as crooked or evil.
So Kabir says that instead of finding fault and maligning others,
dive deep into your own-self. Amazingly, an honest introspection
will reveal that all fault lies with "me" and "my"
own perceptions and attitudes. If there is any evil or crookedness,
it is in "me". Correcting this and opting for a loving
and compassionate attitude will change one's perceptions and the
world will appear wonderful all over again.
