‘Saragam - Hirana’ is a Nirguni Bhajan by Kabirand sung by promising young vocalist Rahul Deshpande. Rahul is accompanied by artists of comparable caliber. Renowned percussionist Bhavani Shankar handles Pakhavaj and Dholak and Nikhil Phatak is on Tabla. SatyajeetPrabhu on Keyboard and Aditya Oke on Harmonium add to the magic.
Using the metaphor of predator and prey Kabir speaks about the virtues of wisdom, spiritualism and the vice of temptation. Describing man as if it is a deer, Kabir calls the three areas as different forests. For the deer the first two, i. e. wisdom and spirituality, are safe. The third area, i. e. of temptations, is dangerous and that it is likely to be preyed upon there. It is all illusion, deception there. Five predators – faculties recognised by the sensory organs – occupy that area and it makes the man forget the inner self. Salvation is a process of securing oneself from these predators and this requires a true Guru.
