Inside this clay jar there are meadows and groves and the One who made them.
Inside this jar there are seven oceans and innumerable stars, acid to test gold, and a patient appraiser of jewels.
Inside this jar the music of eternity, and a spring flows from the source of all waters.
Kabir says: Listen friend! My beloved Master lives inside.
