(1) “I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.

You don’t grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house;
and you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look!

Kabir will tell you the truth: go wherever you like, to Calcutta or Tibet;
if you can’t find where your soul is hidden,
for you the world will never be real!”

(2) “The Lord is in me, the Lord is in you, as life is in every seed, put false pride away and seek the Lord within..”

(3) “The Kazi is searching the words of the Koran, and instructing others:
but if his heart be not steeped in that love, what does it avail, though he be a teacher of men?”

Kabir Das (1440–1518) an Indian mystic, philosopher and poet whose teachings emphasized loving devotion to the divine principle and social egalitarianism!
