About The Book

These nectarous Saakhis of Kabir Saheb are in thousands in numbers in Saakhi Grantho clossified in various chapters: and I have selected 1008 Saakhis out of these and put them in 35 chapters. And in order to present a correct picture, I have attempted to submit my own interpretations in the form of a briefprefaces in the beginning of each chapter. I hope and do believe that th is will not only help our respectable readers understand these chapters, rather they trill relish reading them.

 

Preface

Many saints and sages, brave and great personages, have been born at different intervals of time on the holy land of India. Their austerity and practice of spirituality, their selfless service, love and sacrifice, Purushartha (the object of a man's creation and existence) and benevolence have caused welfare to entire human society. During such period Sadguru Kabir Saheb took incarnation in the form of a heavenly being, and showed the right path to those lost in the darkness of ignorance. He hammered the society which subscribed to the feelings of discrimination between high caste and low caste, he hammered those who had discriminatory behaviour toward untouchables, and he sowed the seeds of equality in the hearts of every human being. He taught the people to forsake their pride of caste and creed, and wealth and family status, and follow the path of virtues and good conduct. He very strongly and fearlessly professed his views and negated widespread fanaticism, blind faith, false beliefs in vows to make offerings to deities after fulfilment of desires, sanctimony and evil practices. He trumpeted his idea of religious revolution, gave sermons to everyone on pure consciousness and the eternal truth of self-realization and gave a resonant voice to religion of humanity. In the annals of our Indian history, Kabir Saheb is one who is endowed with genius and is an embodiment of devotion and knowledge. His 'Shabda ', 'Ramaini ', and 'Bhajan' compositions have been accepted open heartedly by small and big, educated and uneducated, and the poor and rich all alike. His nectarous compositions are sung with reverence here, there and everywhere, in this country and abroad, in different communities, and by the people of every caste and creed. We get the sermons of Kabir Saheb in a free verse form of 'Shabda-Bhajan', 'Ramaini' and 'Saakhi'. His great composition " Beejak' is very famous. His 'Kabir Saakhi- Grantha' is most popular. His Saakhi compositions are very didactic and are in a very simple language; but they contain a very deep meaning. It's long since I have been writing in verse and in prose, but I had never imagined that I would get a chance to write a commentary on the Saakhi compositions of Kabir Saheb. It may be a coincidence that I was contacted by the publisher of this book through someone and was asked to write a commentary on one thousand and eight Saakh is. I took it to be as a job entrusted to me by the divine itself and accepted to do it. It was at that time that I recollected that once I had humbly requested most respectable Sadguru Hajoor Uditnam Saheb (Kashi) to allow me to write something about him. He had replied with a smile-'Not now; you may write when I am no more'. I couldn't quite understand what he meant, but now I understand that it was 'his' order passed on to me. And so I offered my salutations to him silently and began writing this book. Since these Saakhis are full of the nectar of knowledge ofKabir Saheb, I named this book 'Kabir Vani Satya-Jnanamrit'.

These nectarous Saakhis of Kabir Saheb are in thousands in Saakhi Grantha in the forms of various chapters; and I have selected 1008 Saakhis out of these and put them in 35 chapters. And in order to present a correct picture, I have attempted to submit my own interpretations in the form of a brief preface in the beginning of each chapter. I hope and do believe that this will not only help our respectable readers understand these chapters, rather they will relish reading them. While writing the commentary, in certain places, in order to give a fuller meaning, some additions have been made in the interpretation of Saakhis. I have tried my level best to bring down the explanations in the simplest form in order to be able to render an easy understanding. But, to what extent I have been successful, can be judged best by my readers.

The Saakhis of 'Kabir Vani Satya-Jnanamrit' is the abridged version of Saakhi-Grantha. The Saakhi-Grantha of Pandit Maharaj Raghavdas forms a basis, in certain places, in the writing of this commentary. And so, I am indeed very-very grateful to him. I am personally thankful to some of my friends-Shri Om Prakash Dheeman Premi, Shri Chandrapal Premi and Dr. K. S. Vidyarthy, whose active co-opration and good wishes met every personal requirement of mine and proved to be a great support in writing this book. At last, I must, once again, thank the great embodiment of truth, the greatest of recluses, engrossed in the Supreme Self, Sadguru Hajoor Uditnam Saheb (Kashi, Uttar Pradesh, Kharasia, Madhya Pradesh) and humbly pay my reverential obeisance to him and to the entire community of the sages. I seek an apology with all my humbleness for any lapse in writing this commentary which may have occurred due to my ignorance. I hope that the dear ones of Sad guru would ignore such lapses and concentrate on its virtuous quality.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
