The Altar

Give thy body and mind to Him Who has no desire of His own; with no thought of the self be established in Him; after the mind, what then remains? Not even the body; nothing is left to be surrendered, sayeth Kabir.

Having given the body and the mind, no burden remains to be carried; he who takes pride in this sacrifice will yet have punishment: For who can part with the seed-mind within? Oh Kabir! How can that mind be subdued and surrendered?

Along with body and mind part thou with the seed-mind; oh Kabir! Only after hearing the Master, one becomes fearless; place the seed-mind at the altar of the Lotus Feet of the Master. Oh Kabir! Now one sees nothing but the luminous form of the Master!
