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 the spiritually serene organisation 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.
