Avadhoota yugana yugana hum yogi,
Aave na jaay mite na kabahun,
sabada anaahad bhogi,
sabhi thor jamaat hamari,
sab hi thor par mela,
hum sab maay, sab hein hum maay,
hum hein bahuri akela
Hum hi sidha samadhi hum hi,
hum mouni hum bole
rup sarup arup dikha ke,
hum hi me hum tho khele
kahe kabira jo suno bhai sadho,
nahi na koi ichcha
apni madhi mein aap mein dolun,
khelun sahaj swa ichcha
Oh solitary wanderer, for ages and ages I’ve been a yogi.
I don’t come or go, never disappear,
enjoying the endless sound.
Everywhere I see my people,
every place a gathering.
I’m in all, all are in me,
with many, I'm alone.
I’m yogic power, deep meditation,
I’m silent, I speak.
Showing outer form, inner form, no form,
I play within myself.
Kabir says, listen friend, seeker,
I have no desire.
In my hut, I sway, in the self ,
I play simply to please myself.
