Kabir on Veils

Kabir Aasaa:

Rahu Rahu Ri Bahuriya Ghunghat …

Stay, stay, O daughter-in-law – do not cover your face with a veil.

In the end, this shall not bring you even half a shell. ||1||Pause||

The one before you used to veil her face;

do not follow in her footsteps. ||1||

The only merit in veiling your face is

that for a few days, people will say, “”What a noble bride has come””. ||2||

Your veil shall be true only if

you skip, dance and sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||3||

Says Kabeer, the soul-bride shall win,

only if she passes her life singing the Lord’s Praises. ||4||1||34||
