6. Are aatma Re Tujhe Kiska Dar
Des Begana Hai hits the nail on the head. It is hard to find an album which lays out truth so explicitly as this one. For all of us who think this world is our home, this album is an eye opener. Every song drives home one message. This world of desires and attachments, which we call our home, is only a temporary accomodation. Our real home is elsewhere. Gurumaaji leads us to this very home with a heart piercing rendition of Kabir’s poems in ‘Des Begana Hai’.
‘Are Atma Re Tujhe Kiska Dar Hai’ wakes up an individual to his true heritage. Gurumaaji sings, why do you fear death when you are in reality one with the infinite omnipresent truth.
We see everyday people are born and die in this world, nobody stays here forever. Joy is followed by sorrow and vice versa and we do not eat a morsel more than what’s in store for us. Yet we do not realise this world is transitionary, a temporary halt on a long journey. ‘Jogiya Jag Hai ek Saraay‘ opens our eyes to this very truth.
In ‘Mehram Hoye To Jaane Sadhu‘ Kabir describes the true home which seekers ought to head towards. The beauty of this home is beyond description of the Vedas and Puranas and all barriers of caste and creed.
The title song ‘Rehna Nahi Des Begana Hai, warns us not to get involved in this transitionary world, but move towards the truth under the guidance of an enlightened Master.
Finally ‘Sadhu Yeh Murdon ka Gaon‘ is like setting the bitter truth to tunes! everything in this world is destined to have an end, including the sun and the moon, masters and disciples,diseased and healthy, kings and subjects. Kabir awakens us to the one truth which is everlasting and infinite amidst this village of dead and urges us to attain to it.
