kahe Kabir

Sadho Ye Murdon Ka Gaon
Peer Mare, Pygambar Mari Hain
Mari Hain Zinda Jogi
Raja Mari Hain, Parja Mari Hain
Mari Hain Baid Aur Rogi
Chanda Mari Hain, Suraj Mari Hain
Mari Hain Dharni Akasa
Chaudan Bhuvan Ke Chaudhry Mari Hain
In Hun Ki Ka Asa
Nauhun Mari Hain, Dus Hun Mari Hain
Mari Hain Sahaj Athasi
Tethis Koti Devata Mari Hain
Badi Kaal Ki Bazi
Naam Anam Anant Rehat Hai
Duja Tatva Na Hoi
Kahe Kabir Suno Bhai Sadho
Bhatak Maro Mat Koi

Kabir

and as i understood:
Kabir, urges us to break away from the shackles of this village of the dead ruled by Kala or time. With the 'naam', the unseen god or power.
I wonder being a non believer, what I like so much about this. I think I like the faith in faith, the faith in self hence the faith in the world around. The concern which echos in every line of his about the world only leaves hope behind! It made me believe in myself.It made me believe in making a different world and working hard on the task of making it! He tells me the real meaning of being free. A highly 'concerned' freedom, the true 'fakiri' with the sense of belonging.

Kabir says : " It is the Spirit of the quest which helps ; I am the slave of this Spirit of the quest."

and i think this 'faith in the quest' keeps all of us going...

true,faith is a strange thing.

Faith, by definition, is belief without evidence. I am not sure if one needs faith to keep going...

Hi!yah,to keep going is one thing, to keep believing is another.'murdon ka gaon' lets u go on. question is how does one keep the belief(in self and the 'gaon') but not be a 'murda' of our times, with a constant meaningful commitment to the 'gaon' and self,of course.
i feel many times we tend to become indifferent journeying towards subjective individuality.
faith in post-postmodern conditions!
