Haman Hain Ishq Mastaana

You spent your whole life winning
At least now learn to lose, O fakir

Song @Kabir

Bolaave Satguru Gyaani

In your sky-dome is an upside-down well
Full of the nectar of life!

Song @Sattar Das

Kichhu Din Mone Mone

If you’re headed north, be alert
Tell everybody you’re headed south!
Lovers delight in this wine’s secret
What will a dry heart understand?

Song @Roshik Das

Achi Mil Yaar

I’m rolling about in these waves
I don’t know how to swim
Take me across…

Song @Shah Latif

Kin Sang Karaan Sneh?

Oh my dear friend, whom should I love?
Keep the company of pure-hearted ones
Keep the company of clean-hearted ones

Song @Kabir

Raam Ras Meetho Ghano

I burnt down my house, yogi
I took up the flaming torch
If you scorch your own house, yogi
Then join me on this walk

Song @Kabir

Kaachi Chhe Kaaya Thaari

How frail your body, how false your world
How untrue the account you give of it
O Raam, dear Raam
Pray tell, do tell
Who fabricated your frail body?

Song @Gorakhnath

Pyaari Sajni Re

Sweetheart, dear girl
Wake up your beloved
He sleeps a deep, forgetful sleep
Shake him awake!

Song @Kabir

Aisi Mhaari Preet

You are the sea, and I the fish
I’ll stay immersed in you
If you dry up, I’ll die too
What would I be without you?

Song @Kabir

Zara Halke Gaadi Haanko

This cart is colourful, beautiful
The wheels are red and rosy
A sassy young girl holds the reins
Raam sits in the vehicle

Song @Kabir

Tere Ishq Nachaaya

In the forest of this love, a peacock calls out
My love is more beautiful than any holy place
He wounded me, then forgot all about me

Song @Bulleshah

Nirbhay Nirgun

Fearlessly, I'll sing
The praises of the formless
Reality beyond description

Song @Kabir
