Dohe (couplets) by Kabir Das

.

Want nothing; remove all cares; set free your mind,
For verily is he king who leaves desire behind.

.

(Chah gayi chinta miti, manva beparvah
Jinko kachu na chaiye, woh hi shahenshah.)


——————————————————————————-

As the oil hides in the sesame,
And in the flint lurks the blaze;
The lord resides inside of thee,
So wake; come out of thy daze.

.

(Yun til mahi tel hai, jyun chakmak mein aag
Tera Sain tujh mein base, jaag sake to jaag.)
