Poem XL

I. 65. avadhû bhûle ko ghar lâwe

He is dear to me indeed who can call back the wanderer to his
  home. In the home is the true union, in the home is enjoyment
  of life: why should I forsake my home and wander in the forest?
If Brahma helps me to realize truth, verily I will find both
  bondage and deliverance in home.
He is dear to me indeed who has power to dive deep into Brahma;
  whose mind loses itself with ease in His contemplation.
He is dear to me who knows Brahma, and can dwell on His supreme
  truth in meditation; and who can play the melody of the
  Infinite by uniting love and renunciation in life.
Kabîr says: "The home is the abiding place; in the home is
  reality; the home helps to attain Him Who is real. So stay
  where you are, and all things shall come to you in time."
