The genius of Kabir's dohas is legendary. They are presented in his trademark lyrical spontaneity with disarmingly simple analogies from day to day life.... and yet they carry in them an immense depth of practical philosophy. In fact the full import of what he says is often understood and absorbed only after a lot of reflection and introspection.
In her translations of 400 dohas of Kabir into English, Dr. Sushila Mahajan has attempted to maintain the original lyrical rhythm and beauty while unravelling the master-poet's message for those not familiar with his mother tongue.
The dohas try and enumerate the journey of life across the world-sea with a view to going beyond it to Eternal Bliss, hence the title "..... A Vision of Beyond". It also reflects the paradox that Kabir throws light on--that the Eternal Bliss that we seek beyond actually lies within. "Futile it is to seek God outside, like musk lying in the navel of the musk deer, God too is within".
Kabir assures the reader that anyone can experience the God inside provided they can drop their ego, sweep away the cobwebs in their mind and scour it clean till it shines like a mirror to reflect the God inherent there.
