Sahajiya

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

 

You can listen few Doha , sung by Begam Abida Parveen Here
