I am Within You

I am Within You


Kabir Das

Translation: Sati Shankar

Moko Kahan Dhundhe re Bande, Mein To Tere Paas Mein,

Na Teerath Mein, Na Moorat Mein, Na Ekant Niwas Mein,

Na Mandir Mein, Na Masjid Mein, Na Kabe Kailas Mein,

MeinTo Tere Paas Mein Bande, Mein To Tere Paas Mein,

Na Mein Jap Mein, Na Mein Tap Mein,Na Mein Barat Upaas Mein,

Na Mein Kiriya Karm Mein Rehta, Nahin Jog Sanyas Mein,

Nahin Pran Mein Nahin Pind Mein, Na Brahmand Akas Mein,

Na Mein Prakruti Prawar Gufa Mein Nahin Swasan Ki Swans Mein,

Khoji Hoye Turat Mil Jaoon Ik Pal Ki Talas Mein,

Kahet Kabir Suno Bhai Sadho Mein To Hun Viswas Mein


Man, Where do you seek me? I am within you,

Neither in pilgrimage, nor in idols, nor in solitude,

Neither in temples, nor in mosques nor in Kaba nor in Kailash,

I am within you o man, I am within you,

Neither in chanting, nor in sacrifices, Nor in fasting,

Neither in ceremonies nor in yogic practice, nor in renunciation,

Neither in the vital air nor in the gross, nor even in the universal space,

Neither in the womb of Nature, Not in the breath of the breaths,

When sought, I am available instantly, within a moment,

Says Kabir, Listen o Sadhu, I am in your faith within.
