Drink Of The Lord's Essence


Jan 10, 2008
We are re-absorbed into the One from whom we came;
drink of the Lord's essence, and remain attached to Him.

O my mind, even if you carry someone's burden, they don't belong to you.
This world is like the perch of the bird on the tree. ||1||
I drink in the sublime essence of the Lord.
With the taste of this essence, I have forgotten all other tastes. ||1||Pause||
Why should we weep at the death of others, when we ourselves are not permanent?
Whoever is born shall pass away; why should we cry out in grief? ||2||
We are re-absorbed into the One from whom we came; drink in the Lord's essence, and remain attached to Him.
Says Kabeer, my consciousness is filled with thoughts of remembrance of the Lord; I have become detached from the world. ||3||2||13||64||
