Pankaj Mullick – Yeh Raatein

Pankaj Mullick

 ये रातें
ये रातें ये मौसम ये हँसना हँसाना, ये रातें

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

ये बहकी निगाहें
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये आँखों के काजल में डूबी घटाएँ

फ़िज़ा के, फ़िज़ा के लबों पर, फ़िज़ा के
फ़िज़ा के, लबों पर ये चुप का फ़साना

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना
भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

चमन में, चमन में जो मिल के बनी है कहानी
हमारी मुहब्बत तुम्हारी जवानी, चमन में
ये दो गर्म साँसों का इक साथ आना
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम

ये मस्ती का आलम ये खोए से हम तुम
तुम्हारा, तुम्हारा मेरे साथ ये गुनगुनाना

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना
भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

अलफ़ाज़
चमन – small garden

Flow of Silence

Light of Truth

Now comes everlasting beauty.
Now comes abundant grace,
Now comes boundless purity.

The infinite treasure is shining,
The mighty ocean is roaring,
The morning of grace has come —
Morning? — No!
This is the eternal Light of God!

Who occupies this beautiful form?
Who is the ruler and the prince?
Who is this wise ? —
Nothing but a veil.

The wine of love removes these veils.
Drink with your head and your eyes —
Both your eyes,
and both your heads!

Your head of clay is from the earth,
Your pure awareness is from heaven.
O how vast is that treasure
which lies beneath the clay!
Every head you see depends on it!

Behind every atom of this world
hides an infinite universe.

O Saaqi, free us from the facade of this world.
Bring wine — barrels full!
Our eyes see too straight —
straight past the truth!

The Light of Truth shines from Tabriz.
It is beyond the beyond
yet it is here,
shining through every particle of this world.

 Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

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.

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.

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.
