One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me
in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he
hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

इस तन धन की कौन बढाई
देखत नैनो में माटी मिलाई

अपने खातर महल  बनाया
आप ही जाकर जंगल सोया

हाड जले जैसे नखर के मोती
बाल जले जैसे घांस के पोती
कहत कबीरा सुनो मेरे गुनिया
आप मुए पीछे डूब गयी दुनिया

       

what is the use of this body or wealth? even as one keeps looking, they fling mud on the eyes (meaning deceive and disappear right in front of the eyes)

a man builds a home all for himself, and then goes to rest in the forest (is buried / cremated) (meaning that no amount of luxury is going to be an insurance against anything. Death is the great leveller which snatches away all the material comforts that one   has accumulated in his lifetime)

the bones burn like pearls, the hair burns like blades of grass, says kabir, hear oh hear, in a batting of an eyelid the world  vanishes without a trace / sinks


(the poem means that the world with all its luxuries and comforts is ephemeral and transitory. it is a song of non attachment, of vairagya and dispassion, sung with the brutal honesty that is so typical of kabir's poetry)

तुमको देखा तो ये खयाल आया
जिंदगी धुप, तुम घना साया

tum ko dekha to ye khayaal aaya
zindagi dhoop tum ghana chaaya

When I saw you this thought came to me
Life is like a hot sun and you are the soothing shade

आज फिर दिल ने एक तमन्ना की
आज फिर दिल को हम ने समझाया

aaj phir dil ne ik tamanna ki
aaj phir dil ko humne samjhaaya

Today again my heart wished for something
Today again I had to mollify my heart
(Sometimes the heart does not get its desires)

तुम चले जाओगे तो सोचेंगे
हमने क्या खोया हमने क्या पाया

tum chale jaaoge to sochenge
humne kya khoya humne kya paaya

When you leave then I ponder over it
What did I lose what did I gain

हम जिसे गुनगुना नहीं सकते
वक़्त ने ऐसा गीत क्यों गा

hum jise gunguna nahin sakte
waqt ne aisa geet kyoon gaaya

The song that I am even forbidden to hum
Why did fate bring and sang that song for me?

(Janab Javed Akhtar sahib)

अतस् त्वया जगदिदम् परिकल्पसमुद्भवम् ।
परिज्ञातम् असद्भूतम् अनुत्पन्नम् न नश्यति ॥


athas tvayA jagadhidham parikalpasamudhBhavam .
parijnyAtham asadhBhUtham anuthpannam na nashyathi ..

Therefore, this world, born from imagination, has been fully understood by
you to be inexistent: not (really) arisen, does not perish.

(cathusthavA 1, 19)

न सतः स्थितियुक्तस्य विनाश उपपद्यते ।
नासतोश्वविसानेन समस्य शमता कथम् ॥


na sathah sThithiyukthasya vinAsha upapadyathE
nAsathOshvavisAnEna samasya shamathA kaTham

Destruction is not possible for an existent being (essentially) united to
permanence; how could cessation be for a non-existent being (which is)
similar to the horns of the horse.

(cathusthavA 1, 14)

The reason that the Self does not require under any condition to affirm itself as 'I am' the Buddha kept silent, and which evolved as shUnyA. shUnyA is attributeless as the same as what we see in advaita lights, that which remains to know that there is nothing itself cannot be denied.

Both views stand on the same boat. One calls it Brahman, and other denied even that, as it is even beyond that word itself!

अज्ञायमानम् न ज्ञेयम् विज्ञानम् तद् विना न च ।
तस्मात् स्वभावतो न स्तो ज्ञानज्ञेये त्वम् ऊचिवान् ॥


ajnyAyamAnam na jnyEyam vijnyAnam tad vinA na ca
thasmAth svBAvathO nasthO jnyAnajnyEyE tvam UcivAn

The knowable (object) does not exist when it is not known and without
it [knowable (object)] knowledge does not exist either; therefore the knowable (object) and
knowledge do not exist per se - (thus) you have said.

(cathusthavA 1, 10)

श्रम से ही सब कुछ होत है, बिन श्रम मिले कुछ नाही |
सीधे ऊँगली घी जमो, कबसू निकसे नाही ||


shram sE hi sab kuC hOt hai, bin shram milE kuC nahI

Efforts can accomplish everything. Nothing can be
accomplished without taking efforts. A purified butter
that is frozen cannot be taken out with a straight finger

ऐसी वाणी बोलिए, मन का आपा खोय |
औरन को शीतल करे, आपहु शीतल होय ||


aisI vANi bOliyE, man kA ApA khOy
auran kO shItal karE, Apahu shIetal hOy

Speak in words so sweet, that fill the heart with joy
Like a cool breeze in summer, for others and self to enjoy
