From One Hundred Poems, i. 68

Kabir (1440–1518)
HE 1 is the true Saint, who can reveal the form of the formless to the vision of these eyes:
Who teacheth the simple way of attaining Him,
  that is other than rites and ceremonies:
Who requireth thee not to close the doors,
  to hold the breath, and renounce the world:        5
Who maketh thee perceive the supreme Spirit
  wherever the mind resteth:
Who teacheth thee to be still amidst all thine activities:
Who, ever immersed in bliss, having no fear,
  keepeth the spirit of union thro’out all enjoyments …        10
