An original work on canvas by Bharti Prajapati.
She has derived the essence of her painting from a doha by Kabir.
With a fast and competitive lifestyle, it's indeed a soul soothing experience to absorb some wise words from a great saint, philosopher and guide.
Durbal ko na sataiye, jaaki moti hai,
bina jeev ke saas se, loha bhasm ho jaay.
Kabir yah taan jaat hai, sakke toh rakhu bahor,
khaali haathon beh gaye, jinke lakh crore.
A heart touching doha.
The weak are not to be troubled, for their curse comes from the heart.
A dead buffalo skin used to blow air into furnace can melt iron,
such is the power of a tormented soul.
Kabir says be kind and compassionate to the ones
without power and wealth, for we are mere mortals.
Eventually all of us will perish,
the weak and strong have a similar fate.
The rich and poor have all departed with empty hands.
