' 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
