The ecstasy of Non-Duality

The poet and mystic Kabir in this poem describes the ecstasy and the indescribable feeling of bliss felt in that elusive state of Non Duality. All poems of Kabir have a deep and Spiritual meaning attached to them.

Here is trying to put into words the sensation which followed when his soul merged into the Ever-Existent. He describes the feeling he experienced when he became one with all and all became him. He became the Suns, the Stars and the rivers and streams became him.

This elusive experience can never be described, even by the handful who experience it, it is indescribable. The music which he experienced was the ultimate experience which transcended everything which one believes exist. When he sang he felt all of existence was singing with him, he felt that he was Existence itself in all its divine melody.

Translated by - Rabindranath Tagore
THE Lord is in me, the Lord is in you, as life is in every seed. O servant! put false pride away, and seek for Him within you.
A million suns are ablaze with light,
The sea of blue spreads in the sky,
The fever of life is stilled, and all stains are washed away; when I sit in the midst of that world.
Hark to the unstruck bells and drums! Take your delight in love!
Rains pour down without water, and the rivers are streams of light.
One Love it is that pervades the whole world, few there are who know it fully:
They are blind who hope to see it by the light of reason, that reason which is the cause of separation.
The House of Reason is very far away!
How blessed is Kabîr, that amidst this great joy he sings within his own vessel.
It is the music of the meeting of soul with soul;
It is the music of the forgetting of sorrows;
It is the music that transcends all coming in and all going forth.
