First Talk About Yourself - Hindi Poem

We often overlook our own limitations, not because we don't pay attention to ourselves, but we are more delightfully engrossed in finding other's. Following is a poem on self by Manas Madrecha that advises us to primarily be focused on getting one's flaws rectified before criticizing others and be aware of how great one is. If one aspires for impeccability, then one must self-analyze and deal with own foibles rather than relish the prospect of highlighting other's imperfections.

Transliteration into English:

Pehle Khud Ki Baat Karo


Dusro ki khaamiya nikaalne, waqt nahi barbaad karo;
Nij ka kar vishleshan 'Manas', pehle khud ki baat karo...

Aaine ko dhoomil na samjho, gar ho 'Manas' aap par daag;
Sweekar kar kamiyaa apni, karo malintaa jhatpat tyaag...

Banaa liya daayitva 'Manas', karna ingit par-dosh hi;
Par baari aate moond lete aankh, swa-tritiyon ke brihat kosh ki...

Antarmukhi drashtaa bano, na baahya jag ke 'Manas' kaami;
Rahe smaran tum brahma ho, anant gyaanbal ke swami...

Dekhne laayak is jahaan mein, hain 'Manas' chize bahot si;
Par gaur se dekhna fursat mein, ik dafaa kabhi khud ko bhi...

Translation in English

First Talk About Yourself


Do not waste your time in highlighting other’s failures. Having analyzed your own self, first talk about yourself…

Do not perceive the mirror to be pallid, if you've blemish of your own. By accepting your shortcomings, straight away cast aside the grime...

We have made it our obligation to only point out other's faults. But, as soon as the chance comes, the eyes connive at the huge repository of our own flaws...

Having become attracted to external world, do not disregard your inner world. To search outside is in vain when the key to happiness lies with your own self...

Be an internal seer, and not desirous of external world. Remember you are the supreme soul and master of infinite knowledge & strength...

There are many remarkable things in the world that are worth-seeing. But, at least once in leisure, keenly do look at your own self too...
