Shabad - Duniya ke Dokhe Mooya - Dead out of fear of world

Kabir, Duniya ke Dokhe Mooya, Chaalat kul kee Kaan||
Tab kul kis kaa laajsi, Jab le dhareh masaan||

Duniya ke dokhe The worry about what the world will think.

Mooya spiritually dead.

Chaalat Walks, follows.

Kul Family.

Kaan tradition,

Chaalat Kul kee Kaan Walks according to the traditions of family.

Laajsi embarrassed.

Masaan cremating grounds.

Bhagat Kabir jees above stated salok is very significant and gives guidance to those of us who want to follow on the path of Sikhi but are discouraged out of thoughts like what will the world think or what will the family say, or how the family will be embarrassed if I keep Kesh etc. So many don't keep kesh out of fear of the world and the embarrassment it would bring to their family. So many dont keep important rehits like Bibek out of fear that it will break them off from the world or relatives who are not Amritdhaaris. Bibek Rehit demands that one does everything according to Gurmat thinking including keeping association with Gursikhs.

The above salok is translated as follows:

Bhagat Kabir jee says that out of fear of what the world would think, you have become dead towards spirituality i.e. you have backed off from following the Dharam and have adopted the gait (walk) of your family traditions. (You think that your family would be embarrassed if you follow the path of Dharam) but what will be the relevance of the embarrassment of your family be (if you had followed Dharam) when you die and are now sitting in cremating grounds?

Bhagat jee must have witnessed some individual who was hesitant in walking on the path of Dharam out of fear of embarrassment it would bring to his family and chose to die spiritually but what would happen when that individual died? Would it matter if the family got embarrassed or respected? When one's the jeev-aatma leaves the body, its irrelevant what happens behind.

The lesson Bhagat jee is giving us in this Salok is to not hesitate in walking towards spirituality out of fear of the world or so-called worldly dishonour or embarrassment it would bring to our worldly family. If what the world will think, is preventing one from keeping kesh, then one should, out of love for Guru, break such false walls and keep kesh. If one is hesitating from wearing baana out of fear of what the world will think, one should shed such fears and fearlessly adopt Guru Sahibs baana. If one is embarrassed of reciting and chanting Naam and doing Gurbani Paath, then one should eschew such false beliefs.

Guru Sahib bhali karan.

Daas,
Kulbir Singh

Veerjee, great vichaar, is it possible to add the actual gurmukhee instead of transliteration of banee?

The Gurmukhi fonts are not activated on the forum as yet. Once they are activated, I will post the Gurmukhi fonts.
