Kabir Man Nirmal Bhaya, Jaise Ganga Neer
Pache Pache Har Phire, Kahat Kabir Kabir

Translation
Kabir’s mind got cleansed like the holy Ganges water
Now everyone follows, saying Kabir Kabir

Understanding
Everyone desires to be known, to belong.  Yet due to the chaotic states of our minds, we find ourselves secluded and limited.  The cause of this chaos is our attachments and bondages.  For some reason we are unable to break these shackles and are therefore confined.

The desire to scale the heights of infinity can be achieved only when there is release from our attachments and feelings of insecurity   that bind us.  And, this is possible only when our mind is cleansed from the impurities of ego, illicit passions, anger, fear, greed and procrastination.

Once the mind is free then we find ourselves relaxed, loving and compassionate. Then everyone looks up to us and  wants to associate with us with confidence.  Only those with relaxed and loving mind find themselves in harmony with everyone.
