Where do you search for me? - Kabir

मोको कहाँ ढूंढ़ं रे बन्दे मैं तो तेरे पास में।
ना तीरथ में ना मूरत में, ना एकान्त निवास में।
ना मंदिर में ना मस्जिद में, ना काशी कैलाश में।
ना मैं जप मे ना मैं तप में, ना मैं व्रत उपवास में।
ना मैं क्रियाकर्म में रहता, ना ही योग सन्यास में।
नहिं प्राण में नहिं पिण्ड में, ना ब्रह्मांड आकाश में।
ना मैं भृकुटी भंवर गुफा में, सब श्वासन की श्वास में
खीजी होय तुरत मिल जा इस पल की तलाश में।
कहैं कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, मैं तो हूं विश्वास में । 







English Translation:

Where do you search me?
I am with you
Not in pilgrimage, nor in icons
Neither in solitudes
Not in temples, nor in mosques
Neither in Kaba nor in Kailash
I am with you O man
I am with you
Not in prayers, nor in meditation
Neither in fasting
Not in yogic exercises
Neither in renunciation
Neither in the vital force nor in the body
Not even in the ethereal space
Neither in the womb of Nature
Not in the breath of the breath
Seek earnestly and discover
In but a moment of search
Says Kabir, Listen with care
Where your faith is, I am there.

Yes I am dealing with a spiritual attack I can tell it is human and very skilled compared to myself I have no idea how to defend it I am sure it started when I became aware of the lies of society and "Government".

Meanwhile the oppression will continue.it's one of the countries that i'd like to visit in the future.Kabir are there in a scripture called Granth Sahib?? Do keep up the good work of translating such tings and wonderful sayings.
