Suffers fate of being flayed;
What will be the fate
Of those who eat the goat?
Flesh is a dog’s food,
not his who is blessed with a human form;
If a man allows meat to enter his mouth,
he will one day enter
The Gates of Hell.
Whether they kill for eating or for sport;
They will be dragged by their hair
and taken to task
by the ruthless minions of Kaal (Satan).
And then gives a million cows in charity,
to the holy saw at Kasi (Varanasi),
Still the inevitable result
Will be a seat In flames of hell.
but foolish man is blind to other’s pain;
Why not cut your own throat
So that the bliss of liberation you attain?
Ruthlessly you cut my neck,
But one day the Lord will demand
An account for your deed -
Then you will suffer
Endless agony and pain.
Banish duality from your heart;
All souls belong to the One Lord -
O fatuous Mullah, forbear from killing
Any being of God.
He who ruthlessly kills the five,
will surely meet the Lord.
is a demon in human form,
Keep away from him -
His company will ruin your meditation.
Their very roots as human beings
will be wiped out,
Like radishes uprooted by the farmer.
Who renders a living being dead
Is a demon incarnate.
And claim it to be in keeping
with the canons of your creed;
But when God places before you
the record of your cruel deeds,
What will you fate be?
with the seasoning of salt;
Who would eat meat
and get his own throat cut?
And took to the ways of the world -
God and religion they forgot
The moment they took knife in their hands.
Eat meat and drink wine;
They will never gain salvation,
In the fires of hell, they will sink a million times.
In their hearts; says Kabir,
Both will be dragged down,
by the currents of the eighty-four.
Remember what I say:
Whose throat today you cut,
will cut yours one day.
That your meat can be put to no use:
Nor from your bones can ornaments be made,
Nor can your skin, be mounted on a drum.
Man, why should you become
Merciless and harsh
When from the tiny ant, to the mighty elephant
All beings belong to God?
