Interesting words from the Kabir Project video...

This is in Hindi...sorry, can't type Devanagri:

Kele ke paat paat mein paat
Gadhe ki laat laat mein laat
Kabir ki baat baat mein baat
aur Manushya ki jaat jaat mein jaat.

(A banana has a leaf within a leaf within a leaf
A donkey's kick is a kick within a kick within a kick
Kabir's words have words within words within words
And human beings have caste within caste within caste.)
