being the female

Knowing the male, being the female,
Being the course through which flows the World,
One embraces unfailing Love
And is again as a newborn.
Knowing the light, being the dark,
Being the World,
One becomes unerring Love
And returns to Tao.
Knowing honour, being humble,
Being the valley of the World,
Love suffices,
And one is as unshaped wood.

When wood is shaped it becomes tools.
Used by the sage, tools become powerful;
So a good carpenter wastes little.

ab mujhse hai

teri hasti ki pehchaan ab mujhse hai
tauheed aur imaan ab mujhse hai
mariyam ki, isa ki shaan ab mujhse hai
teri bandagi tera naam ab mujhse hai

ramana speaks-1

A Swami asked: I feel toothache. Is it only a thought?
M.: Yes.
D.: Why can I not think that there is no toothache and thus cure
M.: When engrossed in other thoughts one does not feel the toothache.
When one sleeps toothache is not felt.
D.: But toothache remains all the same.
M.: Such is the firm conviction of the reality of the world that it is
not easily shaken off. The world does not become, for that reason,
any more real than the individual himself.
D.: Now there is the Sino-Japanese war. If it is only in imagination,
can or will Sri Bhagavan imagine the contrary and put an end to
the war?
M.: The Bhagavan of the questioner is as much a thought as the Sino-
Japanese war. (Laughter.)

kamaal -- ashiq hoke sona kya

समझ बूझ दिल खोज पियारे, आशक होकर सोना क्या?
जिन नैनों से नींद गंवाई, तकिया लेफ बिछौना कया ? ।।१।।
रूखा सूखा राम का टुकड़ा, चिंकना और सलोना क्या ? ।।२।
कहत कमाल प्रेम के मारग, सीस दिया फिर रोना क्या ? ।।३।।

kamaal was son of kabir


Khuda apni had , khud jaane
ke meri had to , bas khuda hai

nirbal ke bal raam

सुने री मैंने निर्बल के बल राम।
पिछली साख भरूं संतन की आड़े संवारे काम।
जबलग गज अपनो बरत्यो नेक सरो नहिं काम।
निर्बल ह्रै बल राम पुकार्यो आये आधे नाम।।
द्रु पद-सुता निर्बल भई ता दिन गहलाये निज धाम।
दु:शासन की भुजा थकित भइ वसनरूप भये श्याम।।
अप-बल, तप-बल और बाहु-बल चौथा है बल दाम।
सूर किशोर कृपा से सब बल हारे को हरिनाम।।

tao - look and it cant be seen

"Look, and it can't be seen.
Listen, and it can't be heard.
Reach, and it can't be grasped.

Above, it isn't bright.
Below, it isn't dark.
Seamless, unnamable,
it returns to the realm of nothing.
Form that includes all forms,
image without an image,
subtle, beyond all conception.

Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.
You can't know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Just realize where you come from:
this is the essence of wisdom."

~tao te ching [14]
