    bra is not in any way to be associated with urdu script, for sure close to hindi, of course in the la guage of kabir one will find urdu, arabic, persian and may be else words according to the person who wrote his messages that came to us today which one are true kabir saying that has been the work of scholars to decide after long years of work in this field

    Does anyone know whether the Braj dialect (which he spoke) was closer to Hindi or Urdu script when his poems were first written down (by someone other than he as I understand he did not write and all his poem were in the oral tradition) ?

Best Poem of Kabir

Abode Of The Beloved

Oh Companion That Abode Is Unmatched,
Where My Complete Beloved Is.

In that Place There Is No Happiness or Unhappiness,
No Truth or Untruth
Neither Sin Nor Virtue.
There Is No Day or Night, No Moon or Sun,
There Is Radiance Without Light.

There Is No Knowledge or Meditation
No Repetition of Mantra or Austerities,
Neither Speech Coming From Vedas or Books.
Doing, Not-Doing, Holding, Leaving
All These Are All Lost Too In This Place.

No Home, No Homeless, Neither Outside or Inside,
Micro and Macrocosm Are Non-Existent.
Five ...

The Bhakti Path

The bhakti path winds in a delicate way.
On this path there is no asking and no not asking.
The ego simply disappears the moment you touch
him.
The joy of looking for him is so immense that you
just dive in,
and coast around like a fish in the water.
If anyone needs a head, the lover leaps up to offer
his.
