FOR IN LIFE DELIVERANCE ABIDES
O friend, where dost thou seek me?
Lo! I am beside thee.
I am neither in temple nor in mosque: I am neither in church nor in monastery:
Neither am I in religious rites and ceremonies, nor in yoga, meditation and prayer.
If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see me: thou shalt meet me in a moment of time.
Kabir says:”O friend! God is the breath of all breath.”
O friend! Hope for Him whilst you live, know whilst you live, understand
Whilst you live: for in life deliverance abides.
If your bonds be not broken whilst living, what hope of deliverance in death?
It is but an empty dream, that the soul shall have union with Him because it
Has passed from the body.
If he is found now, he is found then,
If not, we do but go to dwell in the city of death.
If you have union now, you shall have it hereafter.
Bathe in the truth, know the true guru, have faith in the true name!
Kabir says: “It is the spirit of the quest which helps I am the slave of this
Spirit of the quest.”
