Kabir Doha - Inner Awareness
Listen to the sacred sound, the real sound, which is inside of you.
The one no one speaks of enunciates the sacred sound to himself.
And he is the one who has made it all.
The flute of interior time is played, whether we hear it or not.
What we mean by ³love² is its sound coming in.
When love reaches the farthest edge of excess, it reaches wisdom.
And, the fragrance of the knowledge
Penetrates through the thick walls of our body.
Its network of notes has a structure of tones
As if arranged by a million suns.
This melody is saturated with truth.
Where else have you heard a sound like this?
I know the sound of the ecstatic flute,
But I don¹t know whose flute it is.
There is a Secret One inside us
The planets in all the galaxies
pass through his fingers like a rosary.
Listen! The sound of big conch seashells. The sound of bells.
Kabir says: Friend, listen, this is what I have to say:
The guest I love is inside me.
Kabir says: The only woman awake
is the woman who has heard the flute
I hear bells ringing that no one has shaken,
Inside love there is more joy than we know of
Rain pours down, although the sky is cloudless
Inside, there are whole rivers of light
The whole universe is shot through with a single sort of love.
So, plunge into the truth, find out who the teacher is,
Believe in the Great Sound.
Translation and arrangement by Jeffrey Brooks. Based upon a translation by
Bly, from the Kabir Book, Beacon Press, Boston 1971
Welcome to the spirituality blog
This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
