    Na Jaane Tera Saahab Kaisa Hai – Lyrics and Meaning 

    ना जाने तेरा साहब कैसा है
    Na Jaane Tera Saahab Kaisa Hai
    Don’t know the nature of your God
    (Are the nature of your deeds like the nature of your God?)

    मस्जिद ऊपर मुल्ला पुकारे , क्या साहब तेरा बहरा है
    Mazjid Oopar Mulla Pukaare, Kya Saahab tera behra hai
    From the top of mazjid mulla shouts a loud prayer, Is your God deaf?

    चींटी के पग नेवरा बांधे, वह भी साहब सुनता है
    Chinti ke pag nevara baandhe, woh bhi to saahab sunta hai
    The sound from an ant’s feet, God listens to that as well.

    पंडित होके आसन मारे , लंबी माला जपता है
    Pandit Hoke Aasan Maare, Lambi Maala Japta Hai
    Become a pandit and make aasanas, Chant with long garland,

    अन्दर तेरे कपट का करनी , सो भी साहब लखता है
    Andar Tere Kapat Ka Karni, So Bhi Saahab Lakhta Hai
    The deceitful deeds of your mind, that also God knows

    ऊँचा नीचा महल बनाया , गहरी नींव जमाता है
    Ooncha Neecha Mahal Banaya, Gahari Neev Jamaata Hai
    Making tall and short buildings, man makes deep foundations

    चलने का मंसूबा नाहि, रहने का मन करता है
    Chalne Ka Mansooba Naahi, Rehne Ka Man Karta Hai
    Without dreams of going (dying),  the mind wants to stay

    कौड़ी कौड़ी माया जोड़ी , गाढ़ी भूमि में झड़ता है
    Kaudi Kaudi Maya Jodi, Gaadi Bhoomi Mein Jhadtha Hai
    You earn every penny, then you bury it in sand to preserve it

    जहि लेना हैं सो ले जईहें , बाँकी वहीं वहीं मरता है
    Jahi Lena Hai Le , Baki Wahin Wahin Marta Hai
    Who takes life will take it away,  remaining dies where it is.

    सतवंती को गजि मिले नहि, वेश्या पहिने खासा है
    Satvanto Ko Gaji Mile Nahi, Veshya Pahine Khasaa Hai
    Good natured woman does not get a cotton cloth, the prostitute wears silk

    जेहिं घर साधु भीख न पावे , भड़वा खात बताशा है
    Jehi Ghar Saadhu Bheek Na Paave, Bhadva Khaat Batasha Hai
    Household does not give alms to saint, pimp eats a delicacy

    हीरा पायी परख नहीं जाने , कौड़ी परखन करता है
    Heera Paayi Parak Nahi Jaane, Kaudi Parkhan Karta Hai
    You have not examined the diamond (Life)in your possession,  you examine the penny

    क़हत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, हरी जैसे को तैसा है
    Kahat Kabir Suno Bhai Saadho, Hari Jaise Ko Taisa Hai
    Kabir says, listen brethren, God gives the things that are sought

    If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.

    -Henry David Thoreau

    Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.
