Smaller than a grain of rice, smaller than a grain of barley, smaller than a mustard seed, smaller than a grain of millet, smaller even than the kernel of a grain of millet is the Self. This is the Self dwelling in my heart, greater than the earth, greater than the sky, greater than all the worlds.

- Chandogya Upanishad

The Sun

Some look upon the sun as our father Who makes life possible with heat and rain And divides time into months and seasons. Others have seen him riding in wisdom On his chariot, with seven colors As horses and six wheels to represent The whirling spokes of time.

He is the only adorable one to me: I have none other. My tongue has left off impure words, it sings His glory day and night: Whether I rise or sit down, I can never forget Him; for the rhythm of His music beats in my ears. Kabir says: "My heart is frenzied, and I disclose in my soul what is hidden. I am immersed in that one great bliss which transcends all pleasure and pain."

- Kabir

No worldly delight is comparable to the delight that will fill your heart when you completely abandon all hopes and desires.
