Nar Janam Paye Kah Kina Re
If asked about our achievements in life most of us will tend to list our professional and personal accomplishments. A successful career, a big house, wealth and fame constitute a common man's definition of achievements. To this some might add having a good family, robust health and cordial neighbours. Rarely do we stop and ask ourselves whether these so called parameters of achievements truly give us everlasting joy, happiness & peace of mind. Probably that is the reason why Kabir Sahib is prompted to pose, in his own direct and hard-hitting manner, the question: What have we achieved after getting this human birth? This is a question to all of us and if our answer to this is the standard list of fame and material fortune then we ought to reflect upon our priorities in life. Listen to this commentary on the famous bhajan 'Nar Janam Paye Kah Kina Re' penned by Kabir Sahib. It compels one to introspect and reorient one's life towards achieving a higher objective. It has been excerpted from the DVD titled Kabir - The Maverick Mystic featuring the compilation of illuminating talks by Sadgurudev Anandmurti Gurumaa on Kabir Sahib's intriguing work.
