Seeing Without Eyes, Hearing Without Ears, Walking Without Feet (Kabir, Guru Nanak, Guru Angad)

 

Seeing Without Eyes, Hearing Without Ears, Walking Without Feet (Kabir, Guru Nanak, Guru Angad)

“We speak without tongue,
we see without eyes,
we hear without ears,
we walk without feet,
and we work without hands.”

— Guru Nanak

“It is the mercy of my Satguru that has made me to know the unknown;
I have learned from Him how to walk without feet,
to see without eyes,
to hear without ears,
to drink without mouth,
to fly without wings;
I have brought my love
and my meditation
into the land where there is no sun and moon,
nor day and night.
Without eating,
I have tasted of the sweetness of nectar;
and without water,
I have quenched my thirst.
Where there is the response of delight,
there is the fullness of joy.
Before whom can that joy be uttered?
Kabir says: ‘The Guru is great beyond words,
and great is the good fortune of the disciple.'”

(Songs of Kabir, Rabindranath Tagore)

“Seeing without eyes
Hearing without ears
Walking without feet
Working without hands
Uttering His Name without tongue
And dying while living
Is accepting His Will.”

(Guru Angad)

“May I see You with my eyes,
hear Your name
with my own ears.
Speak Your name
in my words, O Lord;
rest Your flower-like feet
on my heart.”

(Kabir)
