Kabir on Guru

Kabir on guru(or sad gurus) , Channulal's voice.  "quick and dirty" lyrics and translation.

so guru satya kahawein
Regard such a guru to be a true one
koi nainan alakh lakhawein
who makes the eyes see the trasncental (alakh=a-lakshan)
dolat dige na bolat phisle, as upadesh dikhwaein 
whose teaching stays steady, in speech and action
jap tap jog kriya te nyara, sahaj samadhi sikhwaein 
 who teaches sahaj samadhi, which is beyond japa tapa and kriya
so guru satya kahawein 
Regard such a guru to be true(one)
kaya kasht bhooli nahi dewaein
One who doesnt prescribe mortification, or any physical discomfort. 
nahi sansar chudawain 
neither asks you to renounce the world
yeh man jaaye jahan tahan tahan
wherever the mind wanders
paramata darsawein
he makes you see the param-atma(beyond self/transcendental)
karma karien nishkarm rahein , kuch aise yukti batawein
One who teaches the art of inaction in action 
sada vilaas bhog mein jog jagawein 
in pleasure, enjoyment one who kindles yoga
bheetar bahar ek hi dekhein , dooja dristhi na aawein 
Who grants a non dual perception
kahe kabir koi sadguru aisa
aawagaman chudawein 
kabir says, such a sadhguru can deliver one from the cycle of rebirth

No return

If you have ever walked
 you would know
If you have ever desired
 you would know
that to begin
is to cross the point of no return.

And there-after,
you will perish with it, without out it
and curse the day, you had first dreamt of starting.

There is no way forward
and there is no way at all
once you have crossed the point of no return
