hiding in this cage






hiding in this cage
of visible matter

is the invisible
lifebird

pay attention
to her

she is singing
your song



~ Kabir
english version by Rushil Rao



Kabir is not easily categorized as a Sufi or a Yogi -- he is all of these. He is revered by Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs. He stands as a unique, saintly, yet very human, bridge between the great traditions that live in India. Kabir says of himself that he is, "at once the child of Allah and Ram."
