That Abode Is Kabir

Oh My Dearest
That Abode Is Unmatched,
Where My Complete Beloved Is.

In that Place
There Is No Happiness or Unhappiness,
No Truth or Untruth
Neither Sin Nor Virtue.

There Is No Day or Night,
No Moon or Sun,
There Is Radiance Without Light.

There Is No Knowledge or Meditation
No Repetition of Mantra or Austerities,
Neither Speech Coming From Vedas or Books.

Doing, Not-Doing, Holding, Leaving
All These Are All Lost Too In This Place.

No Home, No Homeless,
Neither Outside or Inside,
Micro and Macrocosm Are Non-Existent.

Five Elemental Constituents
and the Trinity Are Both Not There
Witnessing Un-struck Shabad Sound is Also Not There.

No Root or Flower,
Neither Branch or Seed,
Without a Tree Fruits are Adorning,

Primordial Om Sound,
Breath-Synchronized Soham,
This and That - All Are Absent,
The Breath Too Unknown..

Where the Beloved is
There is Utterly Nothing..

Says Kabir I Have Come To Realize.
Whoever Sees My Indicative Sign
Will Accomplish the Goal of Liberation..!
