The Kabir way of Love…..

We usually say that education solves the problem. Down the ages, we can see how futile this sentence is. Education was thought to be the answer of all the problems. But, it can be seen that education is simply taking away us from the reality, authenticity, simplicity and beauty of the natural things.

The biggest proof of my above mentioned fact is, man is not able to love. Yes, man can think about love, he can write glorified poems about love, he can write books about love, but he cannot love. Today, we learned people do not know what is love, so here I am putting a simple two lines about love, written by an uneducated poet of India, Kabir.

प्रे प्याला जो पिये, शीश दक्षिणा देय लोभी शीश दे सके, नाम प्रे का लेय

What this uneducated mystic has understood about love, that we learned people cannot understand and even if we understand, we are far away from putting it in our lives. Kabir says, the one who drinks glass of love, gives away his glass. He just shares it. He himself drinks and at the glass he gives away. For someone else to drink. And what is love? This tendency of sharing is love. Kabir says, the mediocre person cannot gives away the glass. He just wants the love. He does not care about sharing it, spreading it.

I wonder for the vision of this uneducated mystic, Kabir. Some four hundred years ago he commented over the most dominant love problem in today’s age. This is the problem wit hour love today- We do not want to share love. We want to get it but are not giving it back.

This two liner of Kabir is an ultimate solution to all the relationship problems our generation faces. Love people in Kabir way….

Give them a look-

The courage of being alone

Truth cannot be neglected

Anger is not the enemy
