Wings of Silence

God turns you from one feeling to another …..

and

teaches you

by

means of

opposites,

so that

you will have two wings to fly –

not

one.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi ( 1207 – 1273 )

Cup of Love

If in thirst you drink water from a cup,

you see God in it.

Those who are not in love with God …..

will see only their own faces in it.

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi(1207 – 1273 )

Love all.

Mystic of Varanasi

Today is the birth anniversary of the Bhakti saint Kabir Das who lived around 1440 – 1518 CE.

Kabir, the mystic of Kashi (Varanasi) is well-known and loved for his wise rhymes (dohe) that have lived on for centuries.

The one who understands the power of love has achieved wisdom, and wisdom may not be measured by the books one reads.

Kabir’s poetry is exceptionally beautiful, deep, direct and candid. The teachings behind his words are conveyed quietly but impactfully, without losing their sweetness or freshness.

Over the ages, the followers of Kabir and the lovers of his enchanting poetry have memorized, pondered and performed his couplets to seek spiritual awakening. He shared his knowledge with all – regardless of the faith or caste of his listeners and followers.

Love All.

Soldiers of Humanity

Once, a division of the Japanese army was engaged in a sham battle, and some of the officers found it necessary to make their headquarters in Gasan’s temple.

Gasan told his cook: “Let the officers have only the same simple fare we eat.”

This made the army men angry , as they were used to very deferential treatment.

One came to Gasan and said: “Who do you think we are?

We are soldiers, sacrificing our lives for our country.

Why don’t you treat us accordingly?”

Gasan answered sternly: “Who do you think we are?

We are Soldiers of Humanity, aiming to save all sentient beings .”

Love All.

Whom shall I tell ?

Translation:

by Kartar Singh Duggal

It’s all in One contained.
Understand the One and forge the rest.
Shake off your ways of an apostate pest
Leading to the grave to hell and to torture
Rid your mind of dreams of disaster
This is how is the argument maintained
It’s all in One contained.

He who believes, he alone has known
Everyone else is floundering
All the wrangling came to an end
When Bulleh came to town.
Whom shall I tell?

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho

Syed Abdullah Shah Gilani, known as Bulleh Shah, was a Punjabi philosopher and He was a Sufi mystic poet and is universally regarded as “The father of Punjabi enlightenment”

Secrets of religion

Na main bheth mazhab da paaya
Ne main aadam havva jaaya
Na main apna naam dharaaya
Na vich baitthan na vich bhaun

Secrets of religion, I have not known
From Adam and Eve, I am not born
I am not the name I assume
Not in stillness, nor on the move

Bulleya Ki jaana main Kaun
Bulleya! to me, I am not known

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho

Syed Abdullah Shah Gilani, known as Bulleh Shah, was a Punjabi philosopher and He was a Sufi mystic poet and is universally regarded as “The father of Punjabi enlightenment”
