“Listen to me, dear Sadhu! the true path is rarely found.” ~ Kabir
Tell me, Brother, how can I renounce Maya?
When I gave up the tying of ribbons,
still I tied my garment about me:
When I gave up tying my garment, still I covered my body in its folds.
So, when I give up passion, I see that anger remains;
And when I renounce anger, greed is with me still;
And when greed is vanquished, pride and vainglory remain;
When the mind is detached and casts Maya away,
still it clings to the letter.
“Listen to me, dear Sadhu! the true path is rarely found.”
