Kabir – Dohas on Control of Mind

The king, the beggar, and the saint all are disconsolate. Only he who controls his mind is happy and content.

If one has given his mind he has given his all. With the mind goes the body too; Then nothing remains.

Reading and hearing all the scriptures, learnt all the knowledge in them, yet doubts of mind did not go, says Kabir, from doubts sorrows stem!

Without any sea or seashell and in the absence of svati rain, gems are formed in the void space on the hill top. Symbolically it means that spiritual experience can be formed independently without any outward help.

I have cleansed my mind pure like Ganga water, the lord now runs after me I find calling ‘Kabir’, ‘Kabir’.
Sant Kabir
