O Kabir

O Kabir
You have spent an age walking
Who will show you the way?

O Kabir
Without insight, the mind wanders
Home is just a step away.

O Kabir
Kabir, the seeker, drank the ghee
The world is content with buttermilk

O Kabir
Why worry if you drank the Ghee
The cow is with the creator

O Kabir
Feed her the fodder of your love
You will get her milk forever

O Kabir
Who’s the pot, who the churning stick?
Who’s the one who churns

O Kabir
Mind the pot, body the churning stick
Awareness the one who churns

O Kabir
Keep steady the arrow of awareness
Hold it still if you can

O Kabir
The arrow of attention darts everywhere
Hold it still if you can

O Kabir
The warrior stays in the battlefield
The cowards runs away

O Kabir
I make my house on the tip of a thorn
That’s where I am most at ease

O Kabir
Sage Kabir is immersed in play
Alert each moment of day and night
