Shalok Bhagat Kabeer Ji – Slok no 11 Bhagat Kabir Ji.

Bhagat Ji tells us about the Saintly ones. They emit their fragrance of Naam although they may be surrounded by evil persons. Their aura (partaap) and fragrance is so overpowering, that the wretched ones who live near the Saintly ones, get transformed into holy persons themselves. Bhagat Ji uses the imagery of the Sandalwood tree for Saintly ones and weeds for the sinful persons.

“Kabir chandan ka birwa bhala bheriyo dhaak palaas; oye bhi chandan hoye rahe basse jo chandan paas.”
