I have made the translation in versicular form of the great scripture. The Bijak of the highly illumined. The gem of the saints, the great spiritual master Kabir Saheb on the directions of my holy spiritual master Sadguru Shri Abhilash Sahebji, the propounder of spiritually serene organization known as the Kabir Parakh Sansthan, Allahabad. Hence, this presentation of the work is a magnificent gift from my revered holy master. The task of translation of the Holy Scripture, the Bijak of Kabir is the outcome of the deep inspiration and minute guidance to me from the holy master. I must confess that almost a literal translation of the Bijak which is the authenticated holy scripture of the perfect Master Kabir Saheb would not have been possible but for the choicest blessings of my most generous master. I have departed from or added to the literal work, is only to convey the clear meaning with special reference to the Parakh philosophy of the highly enlightened Master, Kabir. In order to make a very clear sense of the translated poems, a caesura has been used in many lines. It is of course just impossible to transfer the full vigour and terse vitality of the original to an English translation. For mystic words, the English language has no equivalents. Nevertheless, I am hopeful that this work will prove a great source of spiritual illumination to the English knowing seekers and aspirants.
Since I have made a mention of Kabir's Parakh Philosophy as above, it is imperative on my part to produce atleast a bird's eye view of the same. My enlightened spiritual master Sadguru Shri Abhilash Sahebji is one of the most acknowledged saints in this Parakh plane. Completely based on this doctrine, my holy master has written two big volumes of commentary on the Bijak in Hindi which have witnessed a tremendous demand and high acclamations from the readers all over the world. Besides, the master has also written a voluminous book namely the Kabir Darshan, especially based on Parakh philosophy. To be brief, this holy master of the present days has written about a hundred small and voluminous books which have been in wide circulation throughout the length and breadth of the country and also in some parts of the foreign lands. His pens sees no pause and as such this realized soul keeps on writing books after books for the last about 45 years. His recent works are the Yogadarshna; what do the Vedas Say? Which have been greatly appreciated by many spiritual seekers, scholars as also the common readers? It will be a great source of attraction when his exhaustive commentary on the Dhammpada of Gautam Buddha comes out which is under the final touch.
Since the literary meaning of Parakh is to examine, assay, sift, put to test and get tested, to balance on the scale of the immaculate discernment it is worthwhile to fully grasp the above essence of Parakh. This will facilitate the readers to read between the lines and understand the depth of the Bijak of the Perfect Master, Kabir.
