I Rejoice In Renunciation (A Bhajan Of Kabir)

Friend, my heart now rejoices in renunciation.

The bliss I've attained chanting the Lord's Name
through riches it can never be gained.
I go on with my poor living, not minding
what the people have to say-
in praise or in denunciation.

My dwelling is in the city of His Love,
I seek solace in patient suffering.
A staff and a bowl in my hands, I roam about
I have my fiefdom in every direction.

O friend, this body will finally end in dust,
then why with pride are you puffed?

Says Kabir, listen O wise one,
the Lord is to be found in contentment.

    It would be nice if you could give the titles of your beautiful translations of Kabir songs in the original Hindi also.
