Treasure Island

Kabir

(1440 - 1518 / Pratapgar, Uttar Pradesh, India)

Hang Up The Swing Of Love Today!


Hang the body and the mind between the arms of the beloved,
in the ecstasy of love's joy:

Bring the tearful streams of the rainy clouds to your eyes,
and cover your heart with the shadow of darkness:

Bring your face nearer to his ear,
and speak of the deepest longings of your heart.

Kabir says: 'Listen to me brother!
bring the vision of the Beloved in your heart.'

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
