The Price?by Tukaram
English version by Harry Kottler
Original Language Marathi
If you treat the opposite sex with reverence
will you pay a price?
If you stop your fault-finding and covetous ways
will your earnings not suffice?
If you sit in prayer and meditation
will it cost a living wage?
If you trust the words of realized souls
will your boss forget your pay?
Is it a burden to pursue wisdom?
Do you fear the price it brings?
Fools worry about the little stuff.
Don't they know? God brings everything!
