Between the Poles

Flights to San Francisco | Turkish Airlines ® | City Guide

Between the poles of the conscious and the unconscious,

there has the mind made a swing:

Thereon hang all beings and all worlds,

and that swing never   ceases its sway.

Millions of beings are there:

the sun and the moon in their courses are there:

Millions of ages pass, and the swing goes on.

All swing! the sky and the earth and the air and the water;

and the Lord Himself taking form:

And the sight of this has made Kabîr a servant.

~By:  Kabir From: Songs Of Kabir Translated by Rabindranath Tagore

New York, The Macmillan Company 1915

Kabir has long been revered in India but it was not until Tagore’s translation in 1915 that the West came to appreciate the works of Kabir.

Tagore the King of Poets is the ideal choice for translating Kabir’s poems. Kabir is maybe more devotional and overtly spiritual; however both  share a unique poetic capacity to inspire our spirit.

Love All.
