KABÎR'S POEMS

    I

    I. 13. mo ko kahân dhûnro bande

    O servant, where dost thou seek Me?

    Lo! I am beside thee.

    I am neither in temple nor in mosque: I am neither in Kaaba nor in Kailash:

    Neither am I in rites and ceremonies, nor in Yoga and renunciation.

    If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see Me: thou shalt meet Me in a moment of time.

    Kabîr says, "O Sadhu! God is the breath of all breath."

    II

    I. 16. Santan jât na pûcho nirguniyân

    It is needless to ask of a saint the caste to which he belongs;

    For the priest, the warrior. the tradesman, and all the thirty-six castes, alike are seeking for God.

    It is but folly to ask what the caste of a saint may be;

    The barber has sought God, the washerwoman, and the carpenter--

    Even Raidas was a seeker after God.

    The Rishi Swapacha was a tanner by caste.

    Hindus and Moslems alike have achieved that End, where remains no mark of distinction.<     Hindus and Moslems alike have achieved that End, where remains no mark of distinction.
