Bowl of Saki - October 13

When in ourselves there is inharmony, how can we spread harmony?
— Bowl of Saki, by Hazrat Inayat Khan

Hazrat Inayat Khan

Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the Gayan

Why, what are you?
–I am the cry of the hungry mind.
Why, what do you signify?
–I am the knocker on a closed door.
Why, what do you represent?
–The owl which cannot see during the day.
Why, what is your complaint?
–The irritation of mind.
Why, what is your life condition?
–I am shut up in a dark room.
Why, how long will your captivity last?
–All night long.
Why, what are you so eagerly waiting for?
–The daybreak.
Why, you are yourself the cover over the answer you want.
