Testament – Hayden Carruth

Testament  So often it has been displayed to us, the hourglass with its grains of sand drifting down, not as an object in our world but as a sign, a symbol, our lives drifting down grain by grain, sifting away — I’m sure everyone must see this emblem somewhere in the mind. Yet not only…

Rumi (3)

Peaceful is the one who’s not concerned with having more or less Unbound by name and fame he is free from sorrow from the world and mostly from himself. ………….. When compassion fills my heart, free from all desire, I sit quietly like the earth. My silent cry echoes like thunder throughout the universe. ………………

अमीर खुसरो – Amir Khusrau(1253-1325)

આ અદ્ભુત રચના પસંદ કરવાનો હેતુ એમાં થયેલો સૂફી પરંપરા, ભક્તિ માર્ગ અને અદ્વૈતનો સુભગ સંગમ છે. પરમ તત્ત્વ અહીં રંગરેજ છે, પ્રિયતમ છે, સંત નિઝામ્મુદ્દીન નું રુપ લઈને પ્રસ્તુત છે. અહીં આત્માની ચૂંદડીને પરમ તત્ત્વના રંગે રંગવાની વાત છે. આત્માને અહીં પ્રિયતમા તરીકે નિરૂપીને પ્રેમમાર્ગની ટોચનો અનુભવ કરાવવામાં આવ્યો છે. એ પરમ તત્ત્વને મળવા,…
