Kabir das ke dohe
Pehle shabd pehchaniye, pichhe kije mol
Parkhi parkhe rattan ko, shabd ka mol na tol
First you should understand what has been said by others. Then you can make the valuation of the words that you have listened. A goldsmith can test the purity of gold. One does not have any means for the valuation and weight of words.
Padha suna seekha sabhi, miti na sanshay shool
Kahe kabir kaso kahu, ye sab dukh ka mool
One may read, listen and learn everything. But after doing all this he has confusion. Kabir is at pains to explain that confusion is the root of sorrow
Ghat kaa pardaa kholkar, sanmukh de deedaar.
Baal sanehi saaiyaa, awe ant kaa yaar.
He opens the veil within your being and shows himself in front of you!! HE only is our true friend. At the time of our birth (here it refers spiritual birth or the moment when this creation came in existence and we as separate being came into picture) he was the only friend and when the journey of the soul has come to an end, I see him only as true friend. he has been our friend throughout our all lives, only it took whole journey from the origin to coming down this material world and going back to our source to make us realize this truth!!
