Poem 14

na kachchu ram bin re

Without God there is nothing! Absolutely nothing!
Your body is truly a gift. Use it wisely,
In the company of noble people.
Ten months did God work
To make the temple of the body.
But in a moment you can destroy it.
People are seeking illusive happiness,
By engaging deeply in cunning pursuits.
With a mind puffed up with pride,
They relate to father, mother and son,
And all other relations, and people.
Kabir instructs: “Do not be foolish.
Devote yourself to God,
And remove all doubts.”
