What Guru Kabir Said


Tell me, O Pandit, O religious scholar: since when have you been a Brahmin?
Don’t waste your life by continually claiming to be a Brahmin.
If you are indeed a Brahmin, born of a Brahmin mother,
then why didn’t you come by some other way?
How is it that you are a Brahmin, and I am of a low social status?
How is it that I am formed of blood, and you are made of milk?
- Guru Kabir (Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Page 324)
