Reader of the sutra: Sw Ananda Teertha.
The sutra
I know the sound of the ecstatic flute,
But I don't know whose flute it is.
A lamp burns and has neither wick nor oil.
A waterplant blossoms and it is not attached to the bottom.
When one flower opens, ordinarily dozens open.
The moon bird's head is filled with nothing but thoughts
Of the moon,
And when the next rain will come
Is all that the rain bird thinks of.
Who is it we spend our entire life loving?
It is time to put up a love-swing!
Tie the body and then tie the mind so that they swing
Between the arms of the secret one you love.
Bring the water that falls from the clouds to your eyes.
And cover yourself over entirely with the shadow of night.
Bring your face up close to his ear,
And then talk only about what you want deeply to happen.
Kabir says, 'Listen to me, brother, bring the face, shape,
And odor of the holy one inside you.'
