    He gives us a delight in every line. Such wisdom and guidance. My favorite verse from one of his poems in the book, 'Kabir The Great Mystic' by Isaac A. Ezekiel, pg.135, at the end of the poem:

    This is the game -
    Go to the Master
    Get the Word and worship the Lord.
    This leads to salvation,
    Declares Kabir most emphatically, most emphatically most emphatically! ! ! ! ! !

    He reminds me of what Clint Eastwood would be like if he were a Param Sant Sat Guru. (Report) Reply

    Such depth, simplicity and realisation is rare. His words are lesons for one and all. They have always inspired me since my school days. In fact even now we quote his couplets in typical situations. (Report) Reply

I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
