Kabira khada baazar mein, sabki mange khair
Na kahu se dosti, na kahu se bair
कबीरा खड़ा बाज़ार में, सबकी मांगे खैर |
ना काहू से दोस्ती, ना काहू से बैर ||
Kabira in the market place, wishes welfare for all
Neither friendship nor enmity with anyone at all


MEANING
Kabir  was impartial. He was neither attached to, nor detached from, any religious group. He went neither to the temple nor to the mosque. If he had used temples to preach, the Muslims would have been left out because they could not go into the temple. And if he had chosen to preach in the mosque, the Hindus would have had to remain outside. He chose the market place to preach, because people of all religions go there. Kabir preached the truth and wanted the welfare of all equally
