"Do not go to the garden of flowers"

The river that flows in you also flows in me
Kabir (1440-1518)

Do not go to the garden of flowers


Oh my friend, do not go there


In your body is a garden of flowers


Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus


And there gaze at the infinite beauty


There is an ocean inside you


And when you are ready you will drink


When you really look for me


You will see me instantly


The river that flows in you also flows in me


All know that the drop merges into the ocean


But few know that the ocean merges into the drop









The beloved is inside you and also inside me


You know the tree is hidden inside the seed


Let your arrogance go, none of us has gone far


Inside love there is more power than we realize


As the river surrender itself to the ocean


What is inside me moves inside you


If you want the truth I’ll tell you the truth


Listen to the secret sound,


The real sound which is inside you








My heart is intoxicated with love


That I have no wish to speak


Reading books everyone died


None became any wise


One who reads the word of love only becomes wise
