ਕਬੀਰ ਭਲੀ ਮਧੂਕਰੀ ਨਾਨਾ ਬਿਧਿ ਕੋ ਨਾਜੁ ॥
								

ਕਬੀਰਭਲੀਮਧੂਕਰੀਨਾਨਾਬਿਧਿਕੋਨਾਜੁ ॥
ਦਾਵਾਕਾਹੂਕੋਨਹੀਬਡਾਦੇਸੁਬਡਰਾਜੁ ॥168॥


A beggar does not own anything and for this reason does not make claims over properties and land. Seeing this, Bhagat jee is saying that a beggar is better off as compared to rich people who own many properties and lands in this false world because he does not make any claim and is thus saved of many evils of attachment to worldly possessions. When you don't own anything, there would be no attachment either.

ਮਧੂਕਰੀ means process of begging from many places. The honey bee collects nectar from many different flowers. The root of this word is Madhu which means honey. Just as honey is made by collecting nectar from many flowers same way ਮਧੂਕਰੀ is food collected in one bowl, from many households.

O Kabir, ਮਧੂਕਰੀ is good because it contains food of many kinds. (The beggar eats good food) plus he has no claim over this big country and big kingdoms.

ਕਬੀਰਹਰਦੀਪੀਅਰੀਚੂੰਨਾਂਊਜਲਭਾਇ ॥
ਰਾਮਸਨੇਹੀਤਉਮਿਲੈਦੋਨਉਬਰਨਗਵਾਇ ॥56॥


The answer to the two colours that one loses, lies in the next Salok:

ਕਬੀਰ ਹਰਦੀ ਪੀਰਤਨੁ ਹਰੈ ਚੂਨ ਚਿਹਨੁ ਨ ਰਹਾਇ ॥
ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ਇਹ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਕਉ ਜਿਹ ਜਾਤਿ ਬਰਨੁ ਕੁਲੁ ਜਾਇ ॥੫੭॥


When Henna or Mehindi is applied on the hands it is mixed with Choona. The colour of Henna is Yellow and that of Choona is White. When they both are mixed, they both lose their colour and become somewhat reddish. Siri Kabir jee is saying that if one wants wants to meet the loving Lord, then one has to lose the shame of being born in a lower caste (if one is born in a lower caste) or the pride of being born in a upper caste.

Such is the Preet (love) of Vaheguru that one loses pride or shame of ਜਾਤਿ ਬਰਨੁ ਕੁਲੁ .

Baani is Agam Agaadh Bodh. Who can claim perfect understanding of it. The above is based on this Daas' meagre understanding.

Daas,
Kulbir Singh
