Summary of Anurag Sagar Page 162 and 163:
A Devotee Should Be Benevolent
For instance, a cow herself grazes in the jungle or fields and drinks water, but feeds nectar-milk to human beings. Ghee (clarified butter) is made from her milk. The male offspring of a cow, that is, an ox is used for ploughing. He nurtures man. Even the cow dung is used by human beings. After the death of a cow, its skin is used to make leather shoes that protect man’s feet from thorns and pebbles. A person in human life by not doing benevolence and remaining devoid of bhakti, destroys the precious human life in committing sins. A meat-eater man by killing a cow like a demon eats its flesh, and incurs heinous sin. Please read Supreme God Kabir Ji’s following speech in this regard: -
Example of Benevolent Cow
Gauko jaanu parmaarth khaani | gau chaal gun parkhahu gyaani ||
Aapan charey trin udyaana | anchvey jal de ksheer nidaana ||
Taasu ksheer ghrit dev aghaahin | gau sut nar ke poshak aahin ||
Vishtha taasu kaaj nar aave | nar agh karmi janm gamaave ||
Teeka purey tab gau tan naasa | nar raakshas gotan let graasa ||
Chaam taasu tan ati sukhdaayi | etik gun ik gotan bhaai ||
Example of Benevolent Saint
Gau sam Sant gahae yeh baani | to nahin Kaal karae jivhaani ||
Nartan lahi as buddhi hoyi | Satguru miley amar havae soyi ||
Suni Dharmni parmaarath baani | parmaarthte hoye na haani ||
Pad parmaarth Sant adhaara | Guru sam leyi so utre para ||
Satya shabd ko parichay paavae | parmaarth pad lok sidhaavae ||
Sewa karey visaare aapa | aapa thaap adhik santaapa ||
Yeh nar as chaatur buddhimana | gun subh karm kahae ham thaana ||
Ooncha karm apne sir linha | avgun karm par sir dinha ||
Taat hoye shubh karm vinasha | Dharmdas pad gaho vishwasa ||
Asha ek naamki raakhe | nij shubhkarm pragat nahin bhaakhe ||
Gurupad rahe sada lau leena | jaise jalahi na visrat meena ||
Guru ke shabd sada lau laave | Satyanaam nishdin gungaave ||
Jaise jalahi na visre meena | aise shabd gahey parveena ||
Purush naamko as parbhaau | hansa bahuri na jagmahn aau ||
Nishchay jaay Purush ke paasa | koormkala parkhahu Dharmdasa ||
Meaning: - Supreme God Kabir Ji has given a message and a direction to the mankind via Dharmdas ji that a human being should be benevolent like a cow. Those who have found a Satguru will become immortal. They will be saved from heinous (anghon) sins. If one does service, then one should not aspire for praise. If one will pat oneself on the back (consider oneself to be praiseworthy in order to get honour and superiority), then he will experience greater suffering. The auspicious deeds will get destroyed.
An initiated person should only aspire for naam (mantra). One should relinquish the desire for honour and superiority from one’s heart. One should not reveal one’s auspicious deeds (donation or other service) before anyone. One should stay in Guru’s feet i.e. refuge just as a fish stays in water. A fish cannot live without water even for a second. It immediately dies. One should give importance to the refuge of Guru in this way. One should always remain engrossed in the (shabd) recitation-mantra (Satguru Shabd), which is Satyanaam, the real bhakti mantra, given by Guru ji. It is a bhakti-mantra of Purush (God). It has such an influence, such a power that a worshipper never returns in the cycle of birth and death in the world. One goes to the Eternal Supreme Abode where there is supreme peace. After going there, a worshipper never returns to the world.
This same evidence is in Shrimad Bhagavat Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62. The Speaker of the knowledge of Gita has stated that – O Arjun! You may go in the refuge of that Supreme God in every respect. Only by the grace of that Supreme God, you will attain supreme peace and go to the Eternal Supreme Abode (Shashvat SthanM). (Chapter 18 Verse 62)
In Gita Chapter 15 Verse 4, the Speaker of the knowledge of Gita has stated that after gaining the Tatvgyan (true & complete spiritual knowledge), one should search for that supreme state of the Supreme God, having gone where, a worshipper never returns to the world. Only worship the Supreme God who has created the world-like tree. (Chapter 15 Verse 4)
The Speaker of the knowledge of Gita has clarified his mortal state i.e. state of birth and death in Chapter 2 Verse 12, Chapter 4 Verse 5, 9 and Chapter 10 Verse 2 that – “O Arjun! You and I have had several births. You do not know; I know.” Readers! It has become clear from Gita that the Speaker of the knowledge of Gita (is Kaal Brahm who was speaking by entering into the body of Shri Krishna ji) is mortal; he is in the cycle of birth and death, so his worshippers also have a similar state. Therefore, they cannot obtain the benefit mentioned in Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62 and Chapter 15 Verse 4. The second thing that has been proved is that there is some Almighty God, the Giver of all the benefits, other than the Speaker of Gita. The speaker of Gita i.e. Kaal Brahm is advising to go in that God’s refuge. That Supreme God is Kabir Bandi Chhod Ji. He has himself described his magnificence that you are reading in Kabir Sagar. Supreme God has mentioned in Anurag Sagar Page 13 that - who shall I make the witness of the story of the nature created by Satya Purush, because everybody was created afterwards? Earlier there was only Satpurush. The thing to ponder here is that from where did Kabir Ji gain this knowledge, when there was no one at the time of the creation of nature? It is self-evident from this, that He is himself the Complete God, the Creator of the universe. The great souls whom Supreme God Kabir Ji has met, they have also given this very testimony that: -
Garib, anant koti brahmand ka, ek rati nahin bhaar |
Satguru Purush Kabir hain, kul ke Sirjanhaar ||
The meaning is clear in this speech itself.
The meaning of “Koorm Kala Parkho Dharmdasa” is that like a ‘Koorm’ i.e. a tortoise at the time of crisis, hiding his face and feet inside him, becomes inactive, and immediately after the crisis is over, moves off on his path. Likewise, if the worldly people cause hindrance in the path of bhakti of a devotee, then the devotee instead of responding to them should hide one’s bhakti and keep it safe. As soon as the circumstances become normal again, one should start doing sadhna at the same speed. By doing so, “Nishchay Jaay Purush Ke Pasa” that worshipper will definitely go to God.
Anurag Sagar on Page 163 (281):
Sortha: - Hans tahaan sukh bilsahin, aanand dhaam amol |
Purush tanu chhavi nirakhahin, hans karein kilol ||
Meaning: - By performing religious practice (sadhna) according to the abovementioned knowledge, a worshipper goes to the eternal abode. He/she enjoys bliss there. That Satlok is invaluable. On seeing the splendour of the body of Satyapurush there, worshippers feel blissful.
