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.’
