We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: The Yogi Takes Care

The Yogi Takes Care

The yogi takes care to dye his garment orange,
but his loveless mind is the color of dirty rags.
Why leave the Lover, who is everywhere outside,
to hide in the temple with your idols?
Go pierce holes in your ears,
grow a ridiculous beard,
let your hair be a home for birds:
such is a goat's achievement.
Flee into the wilderness,
crush any movement toward life,
make yourself sexless--
Shave your head,
wear holy clothes
learn the scriptures by heart,
become full of great speeches--
Kabir says:
You are hurtling toward death's gaping mouth,
bound hand and foot!
