Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kucch Hoye
Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye


Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens
Gardener may water with a hundred pots, fruit arrives only in its season

My understanding

Nature never works in haste. Picking up from this eternal law of Mother Nature, Kabir elucidates the state of our daily hurried lives. We are always in a rush to achieve, acquire and be victorious. It is like a mad race. This brings us under pressure causing ill-health, fatigue and frustration. More than that, it breeds indiscipline. We get forced into a habit pattern whereby we find ourselves either negligent or indulgent.

All this can be corrected if one understands the Doha. Kabir, addressing the Doha to the mind which is chanchal or monkeying around, brings about the importance of a relaxed mind, a quiet mind. By relaxed mind, one should not imply lethargy. A very active mind can also be very relaxed. Relaxation comes through awareness and acceptance.

It is a known fact that a seed sprouts into a sapling only after some time and the sapling gradually grows into a tree with its fruits arriving in their own season. The gardener pouring “a hundred pots of water” (extensive irrigation) will not hasten the arrival of the fruits, rather will ruin the process.

Kabir thus makes us realize that one must do one’s best but should have the patience for the results to manifest in their own appropriate time as Nature does not work in haste.

Comment there is a deeper inner meanig to this doha. changes(for good or bad) accumulate very slowly. we mortals cannot identify their nature in short period, because our senses are crude. we cannot speed up the process for nature has its own rhythem.

Comment Very very helpful to know the meaning of hard words in hindi. Its an awesome job
Comment teacher teaches us 2+2 = 4. we all learn it same.
Kabir or Moral Science teaches us to keep patience. But we all are not equal in having patience. we don't learn equal attitudes.

If parents gets in some sympathetic situation after well knowing each other. Then they will love in mood "Kuch na kaho kya kahana hai ... " . During this love their baby(in mother's stomach) is getting patience_love OS in her/his head.

This baby even if don't read Respected Kabir Dhoa , she/he will be having very good character.

*** when parents love , their baby learns Moral (Operating System : OS ) in mother's womb" ***

Comment In this doha ,kabir gives a true massage to the world that patience is the main thing for any or every keep the mind cool and act without watching result immediately. you will get a result of every act at right time.
Dr. Prakash kachhwal
Comment A farmer sows his crop and then waits. And then the proper time comes for the crop to ripe. In this passive process of waiting, the farmer realises that it is not Him who is the real grower of the crop, instead He has been blessed by the almighty lord. Thus the farmer grows in humility. So we also have to wait for the time to come and the crop be ready.
Biswajit Maji

Comment kaaraj dheere hot hai ... kaahe hot adheer...
samay padai taruwar falai... kitai seenchai neer....
Archana Upadhyay
Comment In "Sadhana", one has to follow "Madhyam Pantha". Any haste may ruin your health and mental balance, and you would never achieve your goal. Over zeal is often experienced by new "sadhak". And if "sadhak" could not control himself, sooner his "sadhana" will be ruined.

Gautam Buddha initially tried very hard to achieve his goal. He engaged himself in sadhana without taking any foods. But he could not achieved his goal. He became so thin, that when he sat on ground, the impression on the ground seemedd like cow's foot print.

Then he changed his way of Sadhana. He took "Madhyam Pantha". And everybody knows what happened.
Debapriya Rahut
Comment Its really true, that all the sayings of bhagat Kabir ji are suitable for everyone.
But strangely we all are against them. Today everyone lives for himself.
There is an old saying:: ` Jab tak `mae ` hon, tab tak `tu` nahi ; aur jab `tu` hae to `mae` nahi.
Now its all upon us what we need `RAB ` or `me`....
Comment It is an eternal truth. Every thing takes its own time to get happen. Therefore, the waiting is as important as doing ardous labour.
