Sahajiya – I understand this word means “ Simplistic” , that’s the Religion, that’s the Philosophy of this School of Sages. Aul ( Auliya), Baul, Fakir,Darbesh,Sufi, Sant……. They are all Sahajiya, they put humanity above all.
Let me tell you about a famous Sahajiya saint named Kabir. He used to teach people through Haiku type poems called Doha. Used down to earth language, gave example from everyday life but delivered a message full of wise thought.
“ Jaat Na Pucho Saadhu Ki
Puch Li Jiye Gaayan.
Mole Karo Talwar Ki
Pari Rahene Do Meyan.” – Sant Kabir ***
*** Don’t ask the religion of a Sage
Ask for wisdom.
Value the blade of a sword
Not the cover that holds. –Translation by Sudip Monsoon Lover
