kabir ke shishy

kahate hain kabiradas ke shishy hone par inhonne apani sari snpatti, jo bahut adhik thi, luta di. ye kabiradas ki gaddi par 20 varsh tak lagabhag rahe aur atynt vriddh hokar inhonne sharir chhoda. inaki shabdavali ka bhi snton men bada adar hai. inaki rachana thodi hone par bhi kabir ki apeksha adhik saral bhav lie hue hai, usamen kathorata aur karkashata nahin hai. inhonne 'poorabi bhasha' ka hi vyavahar kiya hai. inaki anyoktiyon ke vynjak chitr adhik marmik hain kyonki inhonne 'khndan mndan' se vishesh prayojan n rakh prematatv ko lekar apani vani ka prasar kiya hai. dharmadas ke kuchh pad hain -

jhari lagai mahaliya gagan ghaharay.
khan garajai, khan bijali chamakai, lahari uthai shobha barani n jay.
sunn mahal se amrit barasai, prem annd hnai sadhu nahay
khuli kevariya, miti andhiyariya, dhani sataguru jin diya lakhay.
dharamadas binavai kar jori, sataguru charan men rahat samay

mitoo madaiya sooni kari gailo
apana balam parades nikari gailo, hamara ke kichhuvau n gun dai gailo.
jogin hoike main van van dhoondhau, hamara ke birah bairag dai gailo
sng ki sakhi sab par utari gilin, ham dhani thadhi akeli rahi gailo.
dharamadas yah araju karatu hai, sar sabad sumiran dai gailo
