Meher Baba

Kabir was a Perfect Master as well as a poet. Kabirwani, his book of poems, is therefore the more unique because of his lucid expositions on God, love for God, the divine path and illusory creation. Being a Perfect Master, Kabir has said things as much for the man in the street as for the initiate.

He does not hesitate to disclose, both allegorically as well as in plain words, some of the spiritual secrets which, though within the grasp of ordinary man, are yet known only to the spiritually illumined ones who alone truly understand the deeper meaning underlying most of his saying.

More than all else do I cherish at heart that love
which makes me to live a limitless life in this world.

It is like the lotus, which lives in the water and blooms in the water:
yet the water cannot touch its petals, they open beyond its reach.

It is like a wife, who enters the fire at the bidding of love.
She burns and lets others grieve, yet never dishonours love.

This ocean of the world is hard to cross: its waters are very deep.
Kabir says: 'Listen to me, O Sadhu! few there are who have reached its end.'
