Excerpt from The Bijak of Kabir: Translated Into English

While in 1910 my Hindi Text was passing through the Press, I was engaged in putting the same into English, and the Reverend B. H. P. Fisher very kindly helped in revising and correcting the same and a few pages also passed through the Press. But for various reasons the printing of the translation had to be abandoned.

For about five years the translation remained in suspense. During this period fresh light was 1thrown upon the text of the Bijak, and it was strongly felt necessary that a fresh translation should be made. Early in 1916 I started the translation and finished it by the end of February 1916. This time I asked the Reverend E. W. Ormerod, of the Cawnpore Brotherhood, to revise and correct my translation. To this request of mine he readily responded and spent many weary hours daily with me in correcting the translation. I am indebted to him for having made the translation intelligible for English readers to which I can make no pretension. But in no way should he be held responsible if the rendering into English does not agree with the original. I trust he will permit me to avail myself of this opportunity of tendering my warmest acknowledgement of his invaluable labours.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 258 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Excerpt from The Bijak of Kabir, Translated Into EnglishThe third edition of the Bijak is that printed by the Newal Kishore Press, at Lucknow, in 1898. It is a complete Bijak with commentary by Raja Vishu Nath Singh of Rewah. The fourth printed edition was issued at Allahabad in 1905. It is called the Bijak, with commentary of Puran Dass of Burhanpur. In this the words are separated, but in places the separation is marked by mistakes and in many places the editor has tried to polish and shape the words into their modern forms, which from a literary standpoint is very unwise. The commentary is what is called nirgun upasna. It has 115 Shabdas, while other editions have only 113. But these two extra shabdas do not convey any fresh idea, but only what is embodied in the Ad Mangal. It has a few sakhis which are not found in the edition of the Raja, but there are some missing in this which are found in the Rajas. It contains as follows: Pritham Anusar, 84 Ramainis, 115 Shabdas, Chauntisi, Bipramatisi, 12 Kahras, 12 Basants, 2 Chancharis, 2 Belis, Birhuli, 3 Hindolas, 353 Sakhis. The last printed edition is that from Bombay printed in Sambat 1961 (1906 A. D. ). This is the Raja of Rewahs edition, similar to that of the Newal Kishore Press, Lucknow, but it has a life of Kabir in verse and at the end Sayar Pad Bijak and a genealogy and history of the Bhagel Bansha, and Mul Ramaini. It has some fresh sakhis and contains an imaginary picture of Kabir and also a likeness of the Raja of Bhagel Bansha. In this edition many mistakes have crept in and in some places the text is spoiled, but it has preserved the original beauty of the language. After going through all these printed editions as well as some of the available manuscripts, particularly one which I saw in Chunar with Pundit Bhan Partap Tiwari, I tried my best to present the public with a text as accurate as possible in my Hindi Text published in 1911. It is a pity that no ancient MSS. can be consulted. I have separated the words in their proper form and have added foot-notes to show where a foreign word is used.
