Importance of a teacher by Kabirdas ji



Importance of a teacher has been well described by Kabirdas ji .He  appreciated the glory  of "Sadguru" in various ways .Even he says that even if I make the ink of whole of the water of the seven oceans and make the pen of the whole wood of the forests of the  world .If he gets a paper as big as the whole earth's surface ,even then he wouldn't be able to write the glory of a Guru .According to him a person is what ,his teacher is like .
So one must choose a right teacher and if the teacher is wrong ,he should leave him as soon as possible .Because if the teacher is wrong he can take a person in the wrong direction .

His one of the well known renditions to the teacher is like this : 

Guru govind dou khade kake lagu paaye
balihari guru aapne,jo govind diyo milaye.

Bandhe ko nadha mila ,chhute kaun upaye
kar sewa nirbandh ki ,pal mein let chhudaye

Ja guru te bhram  na mite ,bhranti na jinki jaaye
so guru jhootha janiye,tyagat der na laaye

Guru guru mein bhed hai guru guru mein bhaav

Guru kiya hai deh ka ,satguuru chinha nahi
dwaar na paave shabd ka ,bhatke baarambaar

Shishya pooje guru aapna ,Guru pooje sab saadh
kahe kabir guru sheesh ko ,mat hai agam agaadh

Desh deshantar main phirun ,manush bada sukaal
ja dekhe sukh upaje ,waka pada dukaal

Swami sewak hoye ke ,man hi mein mili jaaye
chaturai rijhe nahi ,rahiye man ke maaye

guru kije jaani ke ,paani pije chhani
bbina bichare guru kare ,pare chaurasi khani

Guru to aisa chahiye ,shish so kachhu na leya
shish to aisa chahiye,guru ko sab kuchh deya

guru bhaya nahi shish bhaya ,hirdaya kapat na jaaye
aalo paalo dukh sahe ,chadhi pathar ki naav

aisa koi na mila ,jasu kahu nisank
jaso hirda ki kahu ,so phir maare dank

aisa koi  na mila humko de updes
bhavsagar mein doobate ,kar gahi kadhe kes

hirdaya gyan na upaje ,man partit na hoye
tako sadguru kaha kare ,ghanghasi kulhar na hoye

Jin dhundha tin paiyaan gehre paani paith
main bapura budhan dara ,raha kinaare baith

Sarbas sheesh chadhaiye ,tan krit sewa saar
bhookh pyas sahe taadna ,guru ke surati nihar

jaisa dhoondhat main phiroon taisa mila na koi
tatveta tirgun rahit ,nirgun so rat hoye
