Guru Ravidas

गुरु रविदास

गुरु रविदास जी पंद्रहवी शताब्दी में कबीर साहिब के समकालीन थे और बनारस में ही रहते थे। रविदास जी ने हिंदुओं और मुसलमानों दोनों के कर्मकांड का खंडन किया। उन्होंने मानव-जीवन की अस्थिरता, मृत्यु की निकटता तथा सतगुरु के मार्ग दर्शन में अंतर में गूँज रहे शब्द की साधना यानी परमात्मा की सच्ची भक्ति करने के महत्त्व पर बल दिया। उनकी वाणी के पद सच्ची नम्रता, प्रभु-प्रेम और उनके द्वारा अनुभव की गई विरह-पीड़ा से परिपूर्ण हैं। उनकी भाषा-शैली निर्भीक और स्पष्ट है। पुस्तक में सम्मिलित आपके पद संतमत के मूलभूत आध्यात्मिक सिद्धांतों—जैसे जीवित गुरु की आवश्यकता, नामभक्ति, शाकाहार और कर्म-सिद्धांत पर प्रकाश डालते हैं।

Ravidas was a contemporary of Kabir in the fifteenth century, and was also from Banares. Ravidas criticized the ritualistic forms of worship practiced in both Hinduism and Islam. He stressed the transience of life and the imminence of death, and the importance of true devotion to God by listening to the Name or Sound within, under the guidance of a Master. His poems are marked by bold, down to earth language and are infused with his true humility, love for God, and the pain of separation that he experienced. Quite a few poems that are included in this volume cover the basic mystic principles of Sant Mat, such as the necessity of a living Master, devotion to the Name, vegetarianism, and the law of karma.
