Rahim and Kabir ke Dohe

Some rare gems.

रहिमन धागा प्रेम का, मत तोड़ो चटकाय
टूट से फिर ना जुडे, जुडे गाँठ पद जाये

Don't allow the delicate thread of love (between individuals) to snap. Once it snaps, it cannot be rejoined and if you do rejoin it, there is a knot in it.

रहिमन बदन को देख के, लघु ना दीजे दार
जहाँ काम आये सुई, क्या करे तलवार

When you are introduced to an important/rich person, do not ignore or forget your poor friends. For if, for example, you need a needle to successfully complete a job, of what use is a sword!

खीर सर ते कात्ये, मलियत लॉन लगये
रहिमन करुए मुख को चाहियत ईही सजाये

To cure a bitter cucumber,we cut its head off and rub in salt. To cure a bitter mouth we should apply the same remedy

जे रहीम उत्तम प्रकृति, का करीत सकत कुसंग
चन्दन वीष व्यापत नही, लिपटे रहत भुजुंग

How will evil corrupt, he who has an excellent character? After all does the sandalwood become poisonous by having snakes lie around its trunk?

कही रहीम सम्पति सगे, बनत बहु बहु रीत
बिपति कसोती जे कसे, ते ही सांचे मीत

People will find many many ways to be related to fortune. But only he is a true friend, who stands by you in misfortune

रहीम वे नर मर चुके, जे कहू मंगन ची
उन्ते पहेल वे मुई, जिन मुख निकसत नही

He who has to beg is no longer a man। But those who refuse were never men to begin with.

मीठा सब से बोलिए, फैले सुख चहुँ ओरे!
वाशिकर्ण है मंत्र येही, ताज दे वचन कठोर !!

Meaning we should speak sweet (politely) to every one। This mantra is called washikaran because it overpowers others so give up harsh words!!Easier said than done but the truth remains that politeness always wins।

Great Work. Have always been inspired by Rahim and Kabir's Doheys right from my school days, when it was part of our Hindi textbooks.

Nikhil, You must be a young man. Though it is heartening to learn about the keenness you have in compiling the Rahim's Dohas and acquaining the younger generation with the richness of Hindustani culture but the quantum of Dohas should be more. One likes to have more and more of it to run the present day complicated life style.

1-कबीरा खड़ा बाज़ार मैं, सब की मांगे खैर Iना काहू से दोस्ती, न काहू से बैर
2-माटी कहे कुम्हार सों, तू क्यों रोंधे मोए, इक दिन ऐसा आयेगा मैं रोंधुगी तोये II
3-बड़ा हुआ तो क्या हुआ, जेसे ताढ़, खजूर, पंथी को छाया नहीं फल लगे अति दूर ई
4-कंकर पत्थर जोड़ के मस्जिद दियो जुटाए, ता चढ़ मुल्लाह बाँग दे क्या बहरा हुआ खुदाय II
5-पत्थर पूजत हरी मिले, तो मैं पूजूं पहाड़, ता ते या चाकी भली, पूज खाए संसार II
6- निंदक निहरे रखिये, आँगन कुटी छवाय , बिन पानी, साबुन बिना निर्मल करे सुहाए II

-माटी कहे कुम्हार सों, तू क्यों रोंधे मोए, इक दिन ऐसा आयेगा मैं रोंधुगी तोये II
I know it's pointed out that we'll be dissolved in soil one day. But why is Soil saying "तू क्यों रोंधे मोए". What's the message behind?

Ankur Sangwan said...

lakshya dohe are the dimonds of india I really like it
please see it

sonal shah said...

i thank the website it made my project very easy


@raman girdhar
"maati kahe kumhaar se,tu kyun rondhe mohe,ek din esa aaega me rondhungee
it means
"everyone's times comes one day",today for our benefit we uses soil,we pollute it,we doesn't care about its value.
but one day will come when will our self will get dissolve in this soil.

Prashant singh said...

Hey all my briliant friends,shed your briliance for none would be valued, for we have an imminent and "inevitable" doomsday.
Its time to apply what our great poets have advised wisely,of which.

I would like to share a doha of Reverent Kabir which rightly solaces our life....

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

and this as if asking the "Singles" to urgently confront "someone"
whom you fantasize off or find beguiling or feign to be "just friends"...

Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ub Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kub.

Just go...
for life is still not confirmed on Mars.

For Costly advises
Thank You all.
