Kabir Soyee Soorma, Man Soon Maande Jhoojh
Panch Pyada Paari Le, Door Kare Sab Dooj

Translation

O Kabir, He alone the Warrior, who takes on the "mind" head-on
Crushing the shield of the sensual five, all duality is gone

My Understanding

In the time period Kabir lived there were lot of wars and fighting taking around. Instead of this fighting and killing outside, Kabir redirects our attention to waging a war inside of us via this verse. The mind is the root of all our troubles. This mind is what creates a myriad of thoughts that drive us everywhere and do not allow us to rest in peace. Thoughts are instigated, fed and driven by our five sensual desires - Lust, Anger, Intoxication with Pride, Attachment and Greed. He calls these as pawns because they are protecting the true enemy that lies behind - The Mind. Here the game is won only when we go beyond the sensual (pawn-like) pleasures and conquer the Mind who has been running the show. Kabir then tells us that removing the mind takes away the root of all misery which is the feeling of the "other". There is no "other" anymore as this distinction comes via a creation of our mind. Once the mind is gone there is nobody else except us ourselves. This feeling of oneness is captured in a verse from a poem:

Na Hai Koi Gadi Na Hai Sawari
Pahuncha Wahan Jahan Mein Akela Hi Khiladi 


Neither is their a vehicle nor a rider,
I have reached a place where I alone am the Only Player.

Kabir urges us to duel the dual - the highest teaching from him summarized in such a beautiful way. Vintage Kabir!

Comments on this Doha
Comment ambuj, It means that when Kabir is asked to teach an intellectual then he feels shy. What is the use of showing dancing skills to one who is blind.

Comment Warrior is a leader,

Leaders are full of integrity,

Integrity comes when the senses are controlled from going into the wrong directions,

Controlling of these senses is termed as a war in this Doha.

Comment This Doha says it all. The truth is out. The same has been said innumerable times, The duality - When one deals with his mind's 6 enemies, and 5 senses, result is freedom from duality.. So simply said!

Comment Hello
I am a big fan of kabir & Raheem's Writing,I really remember some Doha of these great Sants.I always wanted to take Hindi literature or language in my Master's but as you know there is no commercial value of these precious ..... So I forced to chose other subjects.However now I like English literature too,because now I understand too.When I read these explanation of Dohas,I really feel proud of my Indian legends.
Thank you and you are really good in both and able to beat it.
Great Job!!
