The sutras
I.65. Avadhu Bhule Ko Ghar Lawe
He is dear to me indeed
Who can call back the wanderer to his home.
In the home is the true union, in the home is enjoyment of life:
Why should I forsake my home and wander in the forest?
If Brahma helps me to realize truth,
Verily I will find both bondage and deliverance
In the home
He is dear to me indeed
Who has power to dive deep into God;
Whose mind loses itself with ease in his contemplation.
He is dear to me who knows God,
And can dwell in his supreme truth in meditation;
And who can play the melody of the infinite
By uniting love and renunciation in life.
Kabir says:
The home is the abiding place;
In the home is reality;
The home helps to attain him who is real.
So stay where you are,
And all things shall come to you in time.
I.76. Santo, Sahaj Samadhi Bhali
O sadhu! The simple union is the best.
Since the day when I met my Lord,
There has been no end to the sport of our love.
I shut not my eyes, I close not my ears,
I do not mortify my body;
I see with eyes open and smile,
And behold his beauty everywhere:
I utter his name,
And whatever I see, it reminds me of him;
Whatever I do, it becomes his worship.
The rising and setting are one to me;
All contradictions are solved.
Wherever I go I move round him.
All I achieve is his service:
When I lie down, I lie prostrate at his feet.
He is the only adorable one to me:
I have none other.
My tongue has left off impure words,
It sings his glory day and night:
Whether I rise or sit down, I can never forget him;
For the rhythm of his music beats in my ears.
Kabir says:
My heart is frenzied,
And I disclose in my soul what is hidden.
I am immersed in that one great bliss
Which transcends all pleasure and pain.
