Couplets of Kabir!

Recently I read Kabir's Amrita vani couplets of kabir- (Kabir dohas). In just two lines, There is profound wisdom hidden in each couplet and they reflect Love, Philosophy, Mysticism and his unbending love for the Supreme. His doha's are gem. His teachings are matchless It deals with human psychology. I Liked The Kabir's way of expressing the most profound thoughts in the simplest words.
Iam inspired by few dohas;
  kasturi kundali basai, mrig dhundhe ban mahi;
aise ghati ghati ram hi, duniya dekhai nahi.
Musk is in the navel of the musk deer, but the deer searches for its fragrance everywhere in the forest. It meant, that a deer keeps looking for a fragrance in the forest. Searching everywhere, and yet not able to locate it. The fragrance comes from himself, his naval.
In the same way, God dwells in every heart, but people Searching him everywhere, and do not find Him because of ignorance, people do not know it, and they search for bliss in worldly things. Instead of bliss, they get disappointment.
I have come to this point, "Realize that true happiness lies within us. We should not Waste time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the outside world.Where there is happiness lies within us. God will dwell in their heart!

Prem gali ati sankari, tamein dou na samai
Jab mein tha tab hari nahi, ab hari hai mein naahi
The street of love is very narrow, two can’t pass through it at the same time
When I was, there was no God(hari), now there is God but I am not
To attain true love, one has to give up his ego. When the ego disappears, God appears. So the devotee must give up his ego to realize God.

Jab Tun Aaya Jagat Mein, Log Hanse Tu Roye
Aise Karni Na Kari, Pache Hanse Sab Koye
When you were born in this world ,Everyone laughed while you cried; Don’t do such work, That they laugh when you are gone. I like this doha

Ek shabd dukhraas hai, ek shabd sukhraas.
Ek shabd bandhan kaTe, ek shabd galphaans.
One word can be the source of the pain and suffering and yet another word can be the source of joy and happiness. One word can cut all your chains and bondage, yet words are which can make you more bound and chained. . The audible words have the power to cause pain and misery or happiness.
Speak such words, words that mind relieve!
