Where dost thou seem me?

by Kabir

English version by Rabindranath Tagore
Original Language Hindi

O Servant, where dost thou seek Me?
Lo! I am beside thee.
I am neither in temple nor in mosque: I am neither in Kaaba nor in Kailash:
Neither am I in rites and ceremonies, nor in Yoga and renunciation.
If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see Me: thou shalt meet Me in a moment of time.
Kab”r says, "O Sadhu! God is the breath of all breath."
