Sadhguru Demystifies Kabir's Most Famous Couplet (Kabir Ke Dohe)
Sadhguru sings a melody from the great Indian poet saint Kabir which tells of a conversation between a potter and the soil he kneads as clay. The soil is waiting to knead us one day, Sadhguru reminds us, while explaining the significance of initiation to bring us out of hallucination and back to reality.
"Maati Kahe" - Lyrics and Meaning
Maati kahe kumhaar ko, tu kya roondhe mohe
Clay says to the potter, who are you to knead me
Ek din aisa aayega, main rundhoongi tohe
There will be a day, when I will knead you
Aaye hain so jayenge, raaja rank fakir
Everyone who is born will die someday, be it a king or a poor man.
Ek sinhaasan chadh chale, Ek bandhe zanjir
one sits on a thorne, another, a prisoner
