III. 12. samskirit bhasha padhi linha

 

I HAVE learned the Sanskrit language, so let all men call me wise:

But where is the use of this, when I am floating adrift, and parched with thirst, and burning with the heat of desire?

To no purpose do you bear on your head this load of pride and vanity.

Kabir says: 'Lay it down in the dust, and go forth to meet the Beloved. Address Him as your Lord.'
