I. 20. man na rangaye

 

THE YOGI dyes his garments, instead of dyeing his mind in the colours of love:

He sits within the temple of the Lord, leaving Brahma to worship a stone.

He pierces holes in his ears, he has a great beard and matted locks, he looks like a goat:

He goes forth into the wilderness, killing all his desires, and turns himself into an eunuch:

He shaves his dead and dyes his garments; he reads the Gita an becomes a mighty talker.

Kabir says: 'You are going to the doors of death, bound hand and foot.'
