Sant Ravidas Sayings

A family that is a true follower of the Lord is neither high caste nor low caste, lordly or poor.
And this toddy tree you consider impure, since the sacred writings have branded it that way, but see that scriptures are written on its leaves.
Oh well born of Benaras, I too am born well known; my labor is with leather. But my heart can boast of the Lord.
I have never known how to tan or sew Though people come to me for shoes I have not the needle to make the holes Or even the tool to cut the thread. Others stitch and knot, and tie themselves in knots While I, who do not knot, break free. I keep saying Ram and Ram, says Ravidas, And death keeps his business to himself.
Sant Ravidas
