Know him to be a true man who takes to his bosomby Tukaram
English version by Mahatma Gandhi
Original Language Marathi
Know him to be a true man who takes to his bosom
those who are in distress.
Know that God resides in the heart of such a one.
His heart is saturated with gentleness
through and through.
He receives as his only those who are forsaken.
He bestows on his man servants and maid servants
the same affection he shows to his children.
Tukaram says: What need is there to describe him further?
He is the very incarnation of divinity.
