Kabir Dohas



Kabira Garv Na Keejiye 2

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

Pride, arrogance and vanity are all related to our ego, our perishable belongings and things which are not eternal. In this Doha, Kabir gives a clear warning by explaining the eternal ultimate Truth i.e. Death. This doha is similar in essence to the preceding doha #19. Death is inevitable and one who remembers this in fact becomes humble, compassionate and true to oneself
