The Hidden Banner

The Hidden Banner


The Hidden Banner is planted in the temple of the sky;
there the blue canopy decked with the moon and set with bright jewels is spread.

There the light of the sun and the moon is shining:
still your mind to silence before that splendour.

Kabir says: 'He who has drunk of this nectar, wanders like one who is mad'.
