Satguru’s Statement (Kabir’s Statement)

Pratham Garud son bhaent jab bhayau | Sat Sahab maen bol sunaau ||
Dharmdas suno kahu bujhaayi | jehi vidhi Garud ko samjhaayi ||

Garud’s Statement

Suna bachan Sat Sahab jabahi | Garud pranaam kiya tabahi ||
Sheesh nivaay tin poochha chaahye | ho tum kaun kahan se aaye ||

Gyani’s (Kabir) Statement

Kaha Kabir hai naam hamara | tatvgyan dene aaye sansara ||
Satyalok se ham chali aaye | jeev chhudaavan jag mein praktaay ||

Garud’s Statement

Sunat bachan achambho mana | Satya Purush hai kaun bhagwana ||
Pratyakshdev Shri Vishnu kahaavae | dash autaar dhari dhari jaave ||

Gyani’s (Kabir) Statement

Tab ham kahya suno Garud sujana | Param Purush hai Purush Purana || (Primordial)
Vah kabahu na marta bhaai | vah garbh se deh dharta naahin ||
Koti marey Vishnu bhagvana | kya Garud tum nahin jana ||
Jaka gyan bed batlaavaen | Ved gyan koyi samajh na paavaen ||
Jisne keenha sakal bistara | Brahma, Vishnu, Mahadev ka sirjanhara ||
Juni sankat vah nahin aave | vah to Saheb akshay kahaave ||

Garud’s Statement

Ram roop dhari Vishnu aya | jin Lanka ka mara raya ||
Purna Brahm hai Vishnu avinaashi | hai Bandi Chhod sab sukh raashi ||
Tetees koti devtan ki band chhudaayi | Purna Prabhu hain Ram Rai ||

Gyani’s (Kabir) Statement

Tum Garud kaise kaho avinaashi | Satya Purush bin katae na Kaal ki faansi ||
Ja din Lank mein kari chadaayi | naag faans mein bandhey Raghurai ||
Sena sahit Ram bandhaayi | tab tum naag ja maarey bhaai ||
Tab tere Vishnu bandhan se chhutey | yaaku poojae bhaag jaakae foote ||
Kabir aisi maya atpati, sab ghat aan adi |
Kis-kis kun samjhaayun, kooae bhang padi ||

Garud’s Statement

Gyani garud hai das tumhara | tum bin nahin jeev nistara ||
Itna kah Garud charan liptaya | sharan levon avigat raya ||
Kabahu naa chhodun tumhara sharna | Tum Sahab ho taaran tarna ||
Patthar buddhi par padey hai Gyani | ho tum Purna Brahm liya ham jaani ||

Gyani’s (Kabir) Statement

Tab ham Garud kun paanch naam sunaya | tab vaakun sanshay aaya ||
Yeh to pooja devtan ki data | ya se kaise moksh vidhata ||
Tumto kaho doosra avinaashi | va se katey Kaal ki faansi ||
Naib se kaise Saheb darhi | kaise main bhavsagar tirahi ||

Gyani’s (Kabir) Statement

Sadhna ko pooja man jaano | sadhna koo majdoori maano ||
Jo kou aamr fal khaano chaahae | pehle bahutey mehnat karaave ||
Dhan hovae fal aamr khaavae | aamr fal Isht kahaave ||
Pooja Isht Pujya ki kahiye | aise mehnat sadhna lahiye ||
Yeh sun Garud bhayo aananda | sanshay sool kiyo nikanda ||

            Meaning: - Garud said to Supreme God Kabir Ji that O Supreme God! You have given naam-mantra of these gods only. This is their worship (pooja). You said that these gods possess only 16 skills (kalaas). Kaal has one thousand skills (kalaas). Purna Brahm (Complete God) is Supreme God with infinite skills (kalaas). You have also mentioned in the “Creation of Nature” that Kaal has stopped you. The three gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv ji are under the control of Kaal Brahm. O Supreme God! How can the Sahab (Master/Lord) be fearful of the Naib (subordinate)? That is, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiv ji are only subordinates of Kaal Brahm. For example, a Naib Tehsildar is a junior Tehsildar. Then how will a senior be fearful of a junior? The meaning is that these gods are Naib of Kaal Brahm. You have given their way of worship; you have given their recitation-mantras. How would these Naibs be able to liberate us from their Sahab (Master – Kaal Brahm)? Then Supreme God Kabir Ji explained the difference between Pooja (worship) and Sadhna (religious practice) that if someone wants to eat the mango fruit, then mango is his venerable object. The effort made to obtain that venerable object is called Sadhna (religious practice). For example, one has to toil to obtain money. A mango fruit is bought with that money and then eaten. Similarly, Complete God is our venerable deity. The recitation of the mantras of the gods is our hard work (labour). By relinquishing the wealth of bhakti that we will obtain after the recitation of mantras to Kaal Brahm and by becoming debt-free, we will attain our venerable deity i.e. God Kabir (Kavirdev). On hearing this, Garud became very pleased. He also got the evidence of his guru being the Complete Guru because only a Complete Guru can resolve a doubt. Garud took initiation. Supreme God Kabir Ji had taken Garud in his refuge in Tretayug. Because of being the conveyance of Vishnu ji and because of repeatedly listening to his gradeur and seeing some miracles performed by Shri Vishnu ji, Garud ji’s faith in Guru ji reduced, but he did not become a Gurudrohi (traitor of Guru). In some life he will again obtain a human body; then Supreme God Kabir Ji will take the soul of Garud ji in his refuge and liberate him. After taking initiation, Garud ji decided to have a discussion on knowledge with Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv ji. Garud ji went to Brahma ji. He held a discussion with him.

Ved jaka nit gun gaavaen | keval vahi ek amar bataavae ||
Marhein Brahma Vishnu Naresha | mar hain sab Shankar Shesha ||

Ved kahey vah prithivi par aavae | bhoole jeevan ko gyan batlaavae ||
Kya ye jhoothe shastra saare | tum vyarth ban baithe sirjanhaare ||
Maan badaayi chhodo bhaai | taaki bhakti karey amrapur jaai ||

“Mother’s (Durga) Statement”

Mata kah suno re poota | tum jogi teeno avdhoota ||

Sab uth gaye apne asthana | saach bachan kaahu nahin mana ||

“Garud’s Statement”

Brahma Vishnu mohe bulaya | Mahadev bhi vahan baith paya ||

Main kaha gunga gud khaavae | dujey ko swaad kya batlaavae ||
Main jaat hun Satguru pasa | la pramaan karu bhram vinasha ||
Tridev kahein lo pariksha hamari | purna karein teri asha saari ||
Hamhi maarein hamhi bachaavaen | ham rahat sadaa nirdaavain ||
Garud kaha ham karein pariksha | tum purna to loon tumhari deeksha ||
Uda vahan se Guru paasey aaya | sab vritaant kah sunaya ||

“Satguru’s (Kabir) Statement”

Garud suno bang desh ko jaao | Baalak marega kaho use bachaao ||
Din teen ki aayu shesha | karo jeevit Brahma Vishnu Mahesha ||
Fir ham paas aana bhai | ham baalak ko devaen jivaayi ||

“Tridev’s Statement”

Dharmraj par hai lekha sara | baasey jaane sab vichara ||
Garud aur baalak saarey | gaye Dharmraj darbaarey ||

“Kabir Sahab’s Statement”

Suno Garud ek amar baani | yeh amrit le baalak pilaani ||
Jeevae baalak umar bad jaavae | jag bichre baalak nirdaavae ||
Baalak lana mere paasa | naam daan kar Kaal vinasha ||
Jaisa kaha Garud ne keenha | baalak kun ja amrit deena ||
Le baalak turant hi aaye | Satguru se deeksha paaye ||
Aashirvad diya Satguru Swami | daya kari Prabhu antaryami ||
Badla Dharmraj ka lekha | Brahma Vishnu Shiv aankhon dekha ||
Gaye fir Dharmraj darbara | lekha fir dikhaau tumhara ||
Dharmraj jab khata khola | achraj dekh mukh se bola ||
Parmeshwar ka yeh khel nirala | uska kya karat hai kala ||
Vo samrath raakhanhara | vaney lekh badal diya sara ||
Sau varsh yeh baalak jeevae | bhakti gyaan sudha ras peevae ||
Yeh bhi lekh isi ke maahin | aankhon dekho jhoothi naahin ||
Dekha lekha teeno deva | acharaj huya kahun kya bheva ||
Boley Brahma Vishnu Mahesha | Param Purush hai koyi vishesha ||
Jo chaahe vah Malik karsi | vaaki sharan fir kaise marsi ||
Pakshiraj tum saachey paaye | naahak ham magaj pachaaye ||
