Beware of fakeness, cautions Pir Kabiruddin

avar so mu(n)draa dhaari re jogi


A true devotee (ascetic) is he who is always a devotee,
Others are only the wearers of earrings (a symbol of a devotee).

Composed by Pir Hasan Kabiruddin
Recited by Alijah Gulamhusein Gulamani

In this ginan, Pir Kabiruddin cautions us on fake external display of piousness. Authenticity is more important; the devotion that is in your heart and mind.

The broader message can be interpreted as a call to reject things that surround us in life that are fake and instead go for what really matters – truth and sincerity.
