Few Maxims of Kabir

Pandit, do some research and let me know how to destroy transiency.

Do not oppress the poor and weak
Think not they are helpless
Remember, the breath of the lifeless blower
Can burn steel to ashes.

Who pricks you with nail
You prick him with flower
You will get back flower for flower
He a trident for nail, be sure.

Why should Kabir be afraid
For, God is above all
On elephant’s back is anyone afraid
If dogs howl from below.

A mere quarrel if retorted
Grows to fighting and death
Says Kabir you don’t retort
The quarrel will end at that.
- Sant Kabir
