Dohe of Kabir Das:- 

  • “बुरा जो देखन मैं चला, बुरा ना मिलिया कोई, जो दिल खोजा अपना, मुझसे बुरा ना कोई”
  • When I went to see evil in others, I could not find anybody, but when I saw myself, I came to know that there is no evil like me.
  • Kabir is trying to tell through this Doha that person should never see evil in others and should not make the fun of the weaknesses of others. Those who see evil in others, in fact, those people are very bad from inside.


  • “पोथी पढ़ पढ़ जग मुआ, पंडित भया न कोए, ढाई अक्षर प्रेम का, पढ़े सो पंडित होए”
  • Through this Doha, Kabir tells us that you read so many books and received a high level of knowledge through those books. But if you do not really have the Knowledge of the alphabet, which you have read, you do not know the importance of it. You do not know how to help others by using that knowledge; even then you will be called ignorant. But if the other person understands the love knowledge, the importance of life and the other things related to them, it doesn’t matter if he had knowledge of the book or not. He will be called a scholar.
  • “धीरे धीरे रे मना, धीरे सब कुछ होय, माली सीचे सों घड़ा, ऋतू आये फल होय”
  • Kabir says in this Doha that if a person wants to be successful in life, then he should be patient. Student, marital, or a businessman if you don’t have endurance, then whatever you try, you will not be able to do. Kabir Das says that if the gardener gives 100 liters of water in his plant in one day, then it is not necessary that the plants grow in the same day. Every work has its own time to complete. That is why it is compulsory for a person to have patience.
  • “जाति ना पूछो साधु की, पूछ लीजिये ज्ञान, मोल करो तलवार का, पड़ा रहन दो म्यान”
  • Kabir says in this Doha that you cannot tell how much a person is knowledgeable on the basis of his caste. The gentleman is identified with his thoughts and conduct. Your behavior towards others shows how knowledgeable and ignorant you are. Just as the sword has its own importance, in war or somewhere else but the sheath is used only as an upper structure. It is used to keep the sword.
  • “बोली एक अनमोल है, जो कोई बोलै जानि, हिये तराजू तौल के, तब  मुख  बाहर आनि”
  • Kabir is trying to tell through this Doha Just like the arrow coming out of the bow does not return similarly words cannot be withdrawn from the mouth. That’s why we should not say anything without thinking. A gentleman knows very well the importance of words. Our entire life remains entangled in these words, so that’s why we should use these words in the proper way. Let us use our words like this so that the person in front of us will be happy to talk to us.
  • “चाह मिटी, चिंता मिटी, मनवा बेपरवाह, जिसको कुछ नहीं चाहिए, वह शहंशाह”
  • Kabir Das says in this Doha that every person in the world has a desire to get something. And the person works hard to get it and when he finds it, he is afraid of losing that thing. The only person in the world is happy who has nothing to lose. That is why Kabir Das has told that person as a monarch.
  • “माटी कहे कुम्हार से, तु क्या रौंदे मोय, एक दिन ऐसा आएगा, मैं रौंदूंगी तोय”
  • Kabir Das has told about the Potter and the soil in this Doha. The Clay says to the potter that the way you are shaping me, one day it will come when you and your whole life will settle in me. Whatever you have earned in this life or have you pleased God by doing karma-kanda. We should remember that in the end, we have to go empty-handed.
  • “माला फेरत जुग भया, फिरा न मन का फेर, कर का मनका डार दे, मन का मनका फेर”
  • Kabir says to the person in this Doha that if you spend your whole life in Garland chanting, and you still did not get peace. So better than chanting this garland, you should look inside yourself. The peace that you seek may be within you.
  • “तिनका कबहुँ ना निंदये, जो पाँव तले होय, कबहुँ उड़ आँखों पड़े, पीर घानेरी होय”
  • Kabir Das says in his Doha the way the straw on the ground cannot harm you. But if the same small straw enters your eyes with the help of a storm you may have to face a lot of trouble. This is the reason why we should never think that he is too small in front of us. Because we do not know what people can do in their life.
  • “सुख में सुमिरन ना किया, दुःख में करते याद, कह कबीर ता दास की, कौन सुने फरियाद”
  • Kabir Das tells us through this Doha that when a person is unhappy, he remembers God. He leaves away all his work and start pleases God. But when there is no misery in his life, there is only happiness in his life, and then he never remembers God. That is why God doesn’t listen to the prayers of such people.
  • “साईं इतना दीजिये,जा मे कुटुम समाय,मैं भी भूखा न रहूँ, साधु ना भूखा जाय”
  • Kabir Das say to God in this Doha give me enough food so that me and my family will get Satisfied. And if there is a beggar or a monk coming to our house, then give us enough food so that we could give them food too.
  • “कबीरा ते नर अँध है, गुरु को कहते और, हरि रूठे गुरु ठौर है, गुरु रूठे नहीं ठौर”
  • Kabir Das has told about the relations between the teacher and the disciple in this Doha. Through the teacher, you get knowledge of how to reach God and if God is angry with you then the teacher will show you the path. But if for some reason the teacher becomes angry to you, then God Himself will not be able to help you anymore. That is why we should respect our teacher.
  • “बडा हुआ तो क्या हुआ जैसे पेड़ खजूर, पंथी को छाया नहीं फल लागे अति दूर”
  • Kabir Das is trying to tell through this Doha that the thoughts of a man should grow bigger. As the palm tree is so large, but people do not get the shadow and it’s not easy for everyone to reach palm tree fruits. What is the use of such a height, that’s why people should keep their thinking big.
