Kabir Dohas - 14
Dukh Mein Simran Sab Kare, Sukh Mein Kare Na Koye
Jo Sukh Mein Simran Kare, Tau Dukh Kahe Ko Hoye
duK maoM isamarna saba kro, sauK maoM kro na kaoe
jaao sauK maoM isamarna kro, tao duK kaho kao haoe
In anguish everyone prays to Him, in joy does none
To One who prays in happiness, how sorrow can come
Let someone suddenly wave his hand in front of your eyes and you will see that the eyes blink. And if you are caught unawares, you may just say 'O my God'!
Such is the nature of mankind. When we are in distress, in a state of helplessness, we invariably then look up in the skies and communicate with Him in our own silent prayer. However, when things are going good, we forget Him. Kabir in this doha highlights this and gives a promise when he says that we shall not suffer if we pray to Him during our good times.
