Listen, all the people of all religions of the world
In the midst of only human love, real religious songs are echoed.
Religion is not so mean imprisoned in hatred and malice
It is above all – it exists in the service of all creations.
Relieving others from pains dedicating self-interest
Driving others’ pangs and carrying all sorrows in mind
It is the real religion that adorns the world with blessing
And pours love in the hearts to the tune of sacrifice.
Just going into the mosque or the church or the temple
Worshiping in disguise with a cap or a tiki or cross-
This is not religion, nor the decree of truth
Religion wants the painful, afflicted pure soul.
Feeling sadness for others’ trouble, to make others happy
To love people with a maliceless heart
Adopting the way of dedication,
Giving up lust and luxury
That is the true religion! That’s the absolute way.
Not I am Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, or Jew
Human being I am and always cry for the poor day and night.
Forget all kinds of disparities of religions and castes
Eliminate the stains of condemnation, hatred, and narrowness of the mind,
Raise up just a melody – we are human beings
After all, we are relatives close to one another
Giving hearty love, let’s share happiness and sorrow,
Uttering the words of human love in our tongues.
The Absolute Lord will laugh from the unseen Heaven
Heaven itself will descend upon the dust of the mortal world.
