Song | अनहद का बाजा बाजता। The infinite music plays | Jatan Natya Kendra

This song is part of the curtain raiser event in Delhi. Performed by Jatan Natya Kendra on Kabir’s dohas.


रस मंद मंदिर बाजता, बाहर सुने तो क्या हुआ।
सुनता नहीं धुन की ख़बर, अनहद का बाजा बाजता।
So what if you hear the worldly orchestra assemble?
You heed not the message from the resonance within
You neglect the soul song that tells you everything!

गाँजा अफीम और पोसता, भाँगे और सराबें पीवता
इक प्रेम रस चाखा नहीं, अमली बना तो क्या हुआ
You lift yourself with substances of every single kind
You roam high on addictions claiming bliss of mind!
Yet not once do you taste of Love’s intoxication –
So what if you can boast of psychedelic visions?

कासी गया और द्वारिका, तीरथ सकल भरमत फिरै
गाँठे न खोली कपट की, तीरथ गया तो क्या हुआ
You travel from Kashi to Dwarka
You wander around nonstop looking for asylum!
Yet erase not the sham in your very own image –
So what if you conquered the world in pilgrimage?

काजी किताबैं बांच कर मसले सुनावे और को
महरम नहीं उस हाल से, काजी बना तो क्या हुआ
You’ve even gone and become the well-followed cleric
You offer guidance and discourses to others!
Yet you know not of the Union state even remotely –
So what if you are proclaimed as the one?

Spread the love
