O servant, where dost thou seek me?
Lo! I am beside thee.
I am neither in the temple nor in the mosque,
neither am I in rites and ceremonies
not in yoga nor in renunciation.
If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see me.
Thou shalt meet me in a moment’s time.
Songs of Kabir (Tagore’s translation)
“Here, I am with you”, says God,
“and you keep thinking of me in your head,
talking of me with your tongue,
and searching for me in your books.
When will you shut up and see me? ”
