Do not go to the garden of Kabir

Do not go 
to the garden of flowers! 

O Friend! 
Go not there; 

In your body 
is the garden of flowers.

Take your seat 
on the thousand petals 
of the lotus, 
and there gaze 
on the Infinite Beauty.

Hiding in this cage 
of visible matter 
is the invisible lifebird. 

Pay attention 
to her 
She is singing 
your song. 

~ Kabir
