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.
Maan ke maate na chaliye, maan ke maate anek,
jo maan par aasawar hai, so sadhu koi ek.
Maan mecca dil dwarka, kaya kashi jaan,
das dware ka dehra, tame jyoti peechan.
Mind, mind and mind alone has the power to overpower oneself,
hence Kabir says don't listen to your mind, learn to control it.
The one who has control over his mind is truly a saint.
The mind, heart and body are doors to connect with the divine.
The moment you realize this you realize the light within.
This body is a mere tool to accomplish our deeds,
with our actions we are able to enrich and attain a sense of fulfilment and peace.
We have this one opportunity to respect and worship our body.
Our karma or actions decide our further journey and destination.
