An original work on canvas by Bharti Prajapati.
She has derived the essence of her painting from a doha by Kabir.

Moko kaha dhoode bande, mai toh tere paas mei.
Na tirath mei, na moorat mei, na ekaant nivaas mei.
Na mandir mei na masjid mei, na kaashi kailaas mei.
Na jap mei, na taap mei, na vrat upvaas mei.
Na mei kriya karaam mei rehta, na yog sanyaas mei.
Khoji hoy turat mil jaau, ek pal ki talaash mei.
Kahai Kabir suno bhai saadho, mai toh hu vishwas mei.

Not in pilgrimage, temple or mosque.
Not in rituals and religion.
Not at all in isolation and solitaire.
Eternal faith in the divine is all that will lead you
unto the spiritual path, says Kabir.
