Within This Earthen Vessel – Kabir

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.’
