' One surf '...

The river and its waves are one surf: where
is the difference between the river and its waves?

When the wave rises, it is the water; and when
it falls, it is the same water again. Tell me, Sir,
where is the distinction?

Because it has been named a wave, shall it
no longer be considered as water?

Within the supreme Brahma, the worlds are
being told like beads:

Look upon that rosary with the eyes of wisdom.

- Kabir
