We start off with a few lines by Kabir, put across Mumbai University.

I live in a county where there's no sky or earth, going body beyond bodies i meet the word.

Within the heart a mirror, but no face shows, you'll see the face, when the heart's doubleness goes.

Kabir's house is on a peak, the path is treacherous, an ants foot slips there, so man why load your bullock

Lakes, trees, saints and clouds that rain, For the supreme truth these four took form.

This human birth, is precious gem, You won't get it again, my friend.
