O Lord Increate, Who Will Serve Thee? - Poem by Kabir

O lord Increate, who will serve Thee?
Every votary offers his worship to the God of his own creation:
each day he receives service-
None seek Him, the Perfect:
Brahma, the Indivisible Lord.
They believe in ten Avatars;
but no Avatar can be the Infinite Spirit,
for he suffers the results of his deeds:
The Supreme One must be other than this.

The Yogi, the Sanyasi,
the Ascetics, are disputing one with another:

Kabîr says, 'O brother! he who has seen that radiance of love,
he is saved.'
