PERFORM VIRTUOUS ACTIONS
re man nekī karale do din kā
O mind! You are a guest in the world
for two days,
Perform some virtuous actions.
Wife, son, family and the meeting of the mind
and the body are for two days only.
In the end you have to go alone
leaving all your wealth, O mind.
From where did you come, where will you go
when you leave your body,
and where will you live? O mind!
Without the guru who will impart to you
the knowledge of the soul?
As the water wheel moves in the well
and comes up full,
and goes down again,
You go through the cycle of births and deaths
from yuga to yuga.
Why are you proud?
O mind! Live with friendliness and give food
to the poor before eat.
Give up evil and do good deeds.
Kabir says to worship the Formless God,
and pay respect to the guru, O Mind!
