This Very Breath

Peace, one and all…

‘Whose place is in the breast?’ The guide made us understand
these words.
This very breath that comes and goes – there is nothing besides it.
They call this the Greatest Name; this is the divine mystery.
This is the living death, Bahu, this is the divine secret.
(Sultan Bahu, trans. Jamal Elias)
