Between the Pot and the Sword
The Art of N. N. Rimzon
Creation of A Pot
Is ghat antar bag bagice
Within this earthen vessel are
bowers and groves, and with
it is the Creator:
Within this vessel are the seven oceans
and the unnumbered stars.
The touchstone and the jewel-appraiser
and within this vessel the Eternal
Soundeth, and the spring wells up.
Kabir says: 'Listen to me, my friend!
My beloved Lord is within'.
