Kabira garv na kijiye, ooncha dekh aavas 
Kaal pado bhu letna, ooper jamsi ghaas
कबीरा गर्व ना कीजिये, ऊंचा देख आवास |
काल पड़ो भू लेटना, ऊपर जमसी घास ||
Kabir says “Don't be so proud and vain, looking at your high mansion”
Death makes one lie on bare land, and grass will grow thereon
MEANING
Don't be proud and vain, tomorrow you'll be lying six foot under feet, on top will grow grass that goats and sheep will eat!
