Within this Earthen Vessel

WITHIN this earthen vessel are bowers and groves,

     and within it is the Creator:
Within this vessel are the seven oceans

      and the unnumbered stars.
The touchstone and the jewel-appraiser are within;
and within this vessel the Eternal soundeth,

      and the spring wells up.
Kabîr says:

         “Listen to me, my Friend!

         My beloved Lord is within.”


- Kabir
