SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Within this Earthen Vessel” by Kabir

untitled.jpg8976

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.”

  1. Dear friend

    Kabir is also known as father of the spiritualtiy. He and all competent Masters, like Rumi, Shamez e Tabrez, Hafiz, Guru Nanak, Guru Gobind Singh, Baba Jaimal Singh, Baba Sawan Singh, Sant Kirpal Singh and many more taught the the univeral teaching of light and sound within, Surat Shabd Yoga.

    There are two book available from Kabir which are spiritual diamonds: “The Anurak Sagar” and the “Dialogues of Kabir” – really wonderful and many questions we may have: this book can provide the answers…

    Thanks for sharing, my friend 🙂
    All good wishes
