WHERE IS the need of words, when love has made drunken the heart?

I have wrapped the diamond in my cloak; why open it again and again?

When its load was light, the pan of the balance went up: now it is full, where is the need for weighing?

The swan has taken its flight to the lake beyond the mountains; why should it search for the pools and ditches any more?

Your Lord dwells within you: why need your outward eyes be opened?

Kabir says: 'Listen, my brother! my Lord, who ravishes my eyes, has united Himself with me.'
