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.
Yaha taan kacha kumbh hai, liya phire hai saath,
dhapka laga phoot gaya, kachu na aaya haath.
Yaha taan kacha kumbh hai, maahi kiya raahi vaas,
Kabir nain nihariya, naahi jeevan ki aas.
Kabir in this doha is giving us his vision of life and soul,
while comparing the body with an earthen pot.
'Taan' the body which akin to an earthen pot is delicate,
we are unaware of its fragile form until the soul passes away.
This body which we are so proud and confidant about,
is just a temporary abode for our soul.
Kabir urges us not to be attached to the body but,
connect to the soul and cosmic energies.
