Ud Ja Hans Akela lyrics

Ek dall do panchhi re baitha... kaun guru kaun chela
Guru ki karni guru bharega.... chela ki karni chela re sadhu bhai
Ud ja hans akela

Maati chun chun mahal banaya.. Log kahe ghar mera...
Na ghar tera na ghar mera ...chidiya rain basera re sadhu bhai..
Ud ja hans akela...
Ek dall do panchhi re baitha... kaun guru kaun chela

Kaudi kaudi maya jodi... jod bharela thaila..
Kahat kabeer suno bhai sadhu...Sang chale na dhela re sadhu bhai..
Ud ja hans akela..
Ek dall do panchhi re baitha... kaun guru kaun chela

Maat kahe ye putra hamara... bahan kahe ye mera.. 
Bhai  kahe ye bhuja hamari... naari kahe ye nar mera re sadhu bhai...
Ud ja hans akela...
Ek dall do panchhi re baitha kaun guru kaun chela

Pet pakad ke maata roye... bah pakad ke bhai
Lapat jhapat ke Tiriya roye... Hans akela jai re sadhu bhai
Ud ja hans akela...
Ek dall do panchhi re baitha.. kaun guru kaun chela

Jab tak jiye mata roye... bahan roye dasmasa..
Barah din tak tiriya roye.. Bhed kare ghar vasa re sadhu bhai
Ud ja hans akela...
Ek dall do panchhi re baitha... kaun guru kaun chela

Kabir lived in Benares, India in the 15th century. He was a weaver, a free-thinker and mystic, and opposed ritualism and false piety. Kabir's own religious identity was ambiguous. He was non-denominational as well as multi-denominational. His followers included both Hindus and Muslims. He was a leading figure in the Bhakti movement. He wrote a large number of poems and songs in simple Hindi, which are still sung across north India even today, especially by the common folk. The Sikhs' holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib, includes several of Kabir's teachings.

WhatsUP Ji,

Interesting verses by Kabeer. In the final analysis, we are alone aren't we? Since you are in philosophical mood, I'd invite you to read "The Man Who Loved Islands" by D H Lawrence (it's a short story..maybe 15 pages & freely available on the internet).

To be, is to be related :)

The man who loved Islands..
Its actually quite long..and very descriptive..

I think Kabir ji is not against contact.. or life in general..
just that one needs to lead a life without too much attachment.. but action is important...

While DH Lawrence (in The Man Who Loved Islands) .. just seems to have a caustic eye for things.. hence the repulsion.. and a search for an ideal condition..

I think acceptance is Key in life.. and "Love" is the one word which spawns everything..

"to be.. is to be related"

But if we try to explain (to be .. is to be related) .. words limit the thought process..

WhatsUP Ji,

I'm glad you liked "to be, is to be related". It is a quote from one of the talks Jiddu Krishnamurthy gave in 1940s. Now, here is the excerpt of what J Krishnamurthy said:

Is not all existence a question of relationship? To be is to be related. In our relationship there is conflict, not only between individuals, but also between the individual and society. Society is, after all, the relationship of the individual with the many; it is the extension, the projection, of the individual. If the individual does not understand his relationship with regard to things or with people he is immediately concerned with, his actions will produce conflict, personal as well as social. There is conflict in relationship and also there is the desire to isolate oneself, to withdraw from a relationship that causes pain. This isolation takes the form of either accepting new and pleasant relationships instead of the old, or withdrawing oneself into the world of ideas. If life is a series of events that will ultimately produce an isolation of the individual, then relationship is a means towards that end. But one cannot withdraw, for all existence is a form of relationship. So until one understands and is free from the causes of conflict within oneself, wherever one is, whatever the circumstances are, there must always be conflict. The idea of progressive isolation which man in his conflict longs for, calling it reality, unity, love, and so on, is an escape from reality which is to be understood only in relationship. There is in relationship conflict, and at the same time thought is seeking to withdraw from that conflict. One finds many ways of escape, but the cause of conflict is still there.

I think the key in relationship (personal or with society..)is:

"Let there be spaces in your togetherness"

As khalil Gibran said..
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,

...And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another
....but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea
....between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup
...but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread
.... but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,
... but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone
...though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts,
... but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together,
.....yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple
....stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress
....grow not in each other's shadow.”
