A Soul of Kaal Does Not Accept Satguru’s Knowledge

Example of “Cuckoo and Crow”: - A cuckoo never lays her eggs by building its distinct nest. The reason is that the crow eats the eggs of a cuckoo. Therefore, a cuckoo recalled such a strategy by which its eggs are not harmed. When a cuckoo has to lay eggs, it keeps a track of where a female crow has laid eggs in her nest. When the female crow goes far away in search of food, the cuckoo lays its eggs in the female crow’s nest in her absence, and herself sits on a far away tree or stays nearby. When the female crow returns to her nest, she sees four eggs instead of two. She is unable to recognise which eggs are hers and which are someone else’s. Therefore, she incubates all the four eggs and hatches them. The cuckoo also stays nearby. Now the cuckoo also does not recognise her offsprings because all the baby birds have the same complexion (black). When the baby birds are able to fly, the cuckoo sitting on a nearby tree produces the sound of “kuhu-kuhu”. The sound of cuckoo attracts the offsprings of the cuckoo, whereas the offsprings of the crow remain carefree. On hearing the sound of the cuckoo, the offsprings of cuckoo start flying towards the cuckoo. The cuckoo while doing ‘kuhu-kuhu’ flies far away. Along with her, the offsprings of cuckoo attracted by the sound following her go far away. The female crow ponders that – ‘Let them go. Let me take care of the ones in the nest, otherwise some bird might harm them.’ On thinking this, the female crow returns. In this way, the offsprings of the cuckoo join their family.

            Supreme God Kabir Ji explained to Dharmdas that – O Dharmdas! Your son Narayan Das is an offspring of crow i.e. Kaal. He had no effect of my sermons on him. You are a part of Dayal (Karunamay Satpurush). Every speech of mine had an effect on you and you were drawn towards me. It had no effect on Narayan Das who is a part of Kaal. This story occurs in every family. The Ankuri Hans, that is, those who had done bhakti of Satguru Kabir Ji in some previous birth and had taken initiation in the True Kabir Panth, but could not get liberated; they have taken birth in some family. As soon as they hear Kabir Ji’s speech from a Satguru, they become restless. On getting attracted, they take initiation, become disciple and get their welfare done. There are also such individuals in the same family who do not agree at all. They even oppose and ridicule the other members who are initiated. They are parts of Kaal. They also, just like Narayan Das, only practice way of worship propagated by the messengers of Kaal.

            Summary of Anurag Sagar Page no. 161.

            Supreme God Kabir said – O Dharmdas! Just as children of a warrior or a cuckoo after moving off do not look behind; likewise, if someone comes running in my refuge by overcoming all obstacles and relinquishing the attachment towards the family, then I will liberate his/her hundred and one generations.

Kabir, bhakt beej hoye jo hansa | taarun taas ke ekottar bansha ||
Kabir, koyal sut jaise shoora hoyi | yahi vidhi dhaay milae mohe koyi ||
Nij ghar ki surati karae jo hansa | taaron taas ke ekotar bansha ||

FAQs about "A Soul of Kaal Does Not Accept Satguru’s Knowledge"

Q.1 What is the significance of the "Cuckoo and Crow" analogy?

The analogy illustrates how certain individuals, like the crow, remain unaffected by spiritual teachings and are considered offspring of Kaal, while others, like the cuckoo's offspring, are drawn towards the teachings of a Satguru. The cuckoo waits for a female crow to leave her nest to search for food. Then, it lays its eggs in the crow's nest, leading the crow to incubate all the eggs, unable to distinguish which ones belong to her. The sound of "kuhu-kuhu" is produced by the cuckoo, and it attracts the offspring of the cuckoo, prompting them to fly towards the source of the sound. Similarly, the devotees of Lord Kabir Ji got attracted towards the true spiritual knowledge of Satguru.

Q.2 What does Supreme God Kabir Ji explain to Dharmdas about his son Narayan Das?

Supreme God Kabir Ji tells Dharmdas that Narayan Das is an offspring of Kaal and that his teachings had no effect on Narayan Das, who is part of Kaal. He practiced the way of worship propagated by the messengers of Kaal and didn't accept the teachings of Satguru Kabir Ji

Q. 3 What happens to the "Ankuri Hans" who had done bhakti of Satguru Kabir Ji in a previous birth but did not get liberated?

The people who have been in the shelter of Lord Kabir Ji in any previous birth quickly take initiation. When they hear Kabir Ji's speech from a Satguru, they become restless and take initiation, becoming disciples and achieving salvation.

Q.4 According to Supreme God Kabir, what will happen to someone who comes running to His refuge?

The person who comes to the shelter of God Kabir Ji, despite all odds and overcoming obstacles and relinquishing family attachments, is promised by Supreme God Kabir to liberate not only that individual but also their hundred and one generations.

Q.5 What is the key message conveyed through the "Cuckoo and Crow" analogy?

The analogy emphasizes that not everyone is receptive to spiritual teachings, highlighting the distinction between those who are attracted to Satguru's teachings and those who remain opposed, representing different spiritual attraction. Within the same family, there can be members who are drawn to Satguru's teachings and take initiation, while others resist, oppose, or ridicule those who are initiated, signifying different spiritual orientations within the family.

In this story, there's a mention of the crow and cuckoo portraying them as God and the devil, which can be confusing because if God is the creator and ruler of the entire universe, how can the devil exist and control the soul of God?

Satlok Ashram

Dear reader, we appreciate your engagement with our article and your willingness to share your opinion. It's true that Almighty God Kabir is the creator of the entire universe, and according to His rules, everyone receives their karma. However, there's a concept of Devil Kaal, who, through long periods of austerity, has acquired power. To gain a better understanding of Devil Kaal, his traps, and which forms of worship fall under his influence, we recommend thoroughly studying the creation of nature. Additionally, reading the book "Jeene Ki Rah" and listening to the spiritual discourses of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj can provide further insights.

I have been under the guidance of Kabir Sahib Ji through a Guru whose ancestor is Dharamdas Ji for the past 10 years. I have a strong desire to reach Satlok and attain salvation, but I find it challenging to grasp the teachings of Kabir Sahib Ji correctly.

Satlok Ashram

Dear reader, we appreciate your commitment to your spiritual journey. However, it's essential to note that simply connecting with any Guru and assuming you are in the shelter of Kabir Sahib Ji may not be sufficient. To reach Satlok and attain salvation, it's crucial to seek the guidance of a complete Guru who possesses the authority to grant the true Mantra of salvation to devotees. Many Gurus around the world claim to follow Kabir Sahib Ji, but Kabir Sagar mentions that in Kalyug, numerous sects will emerge, praising the knowledge of Kabir Sahib Ji, yet not truly understanding the path to salvation. These sects will be influenced by Devil Kaal. Recognizing a true Guru before taking initiation is of utmost importance in this precious human life. We recommend that you explore into this matter further by reading the book "Jeene Ki Rah" and listening to the spiritual discourses of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj for a more comprehensive understanding.
