Kabir - Tree of Life

 Tree of Life

    No longer am I
    The man I used to be;
    For I have plucked the fruit
    Of this precious tree of life.

    As the river flows down the hills
    And becomes one with the sea,
    So has this weaver’s love flowed
    To become one with the Lord of Love.

    Go deeper and deeper in meditation
    To reach the seabed of consciousness.
    Through the blessing of my teacher
    I have passed beyond the land of death.

    Says Kabir: Listen to me, friends,
    And cast away all your doubts.
    Make your faith unshakable in the Lord,
    And pass beyond the land of death.

    — Guru Kabir, Rendering by Eknath Easwaran
