Kabir Sahib

The Significance of Satsang

I am entrapped in the city of thieves, while my life is athirst for Satsang. In Satsang lieth much benefit, for it swiftly reveals the Master within thee1, but fools do not understand its significance.

During Satsang is showered a veritable rain of Ambrosia. Indeed, thou hast held in thy fist worthless stones of worldly goods. And thrown away the diamond of the Word, whose value non can measure.

Kabir says, listen ye brother seeker, from this house (the body) take thy soul to that House.
