The sutras
I.98. Sadho, Sahajai Kaya Sodho
O sadhu! Purify your body in the simple way.
As the seed is within the banyan tree,
And within the seed are the flowers,
The fruits, and the shade;
So the germ is within the body,
And within that germ is the body again.
The fire, the air, the water, the earth, and the aether;
You cannot have these outside of him.
O kazi, o pundit, consider it well:
What is there that is not the soul?
The water-filled pitcher is placed upon water,
It has water within and water without.
It should not be given a name,
Lest it call forth the error of dualism.
Kabir says: Listen to the word, the truth,
Which is your essence.
He speaks the word of himself;
And he himself is the creator!
I.102. Tarvar Ak Mul Bin Thada
There is a strange tree which stands without roots
And bears fruits without blossoming;
It has not branches and no leaves,
It is lotus all over.
Two birds sing there; one is the guru,
And the other the disciple:
The disciple chooses the manifold fruits of life
And tastes them, and the guru beholds him in joy.
What Kabir says is hard to understand:
The bird is beyond seeking,
Yet it is most clearly visible.
The formless is the midst of all forms,
I sing the glory of forms.
