Dennis Webber wrote:  poetry of Sultan Bahu 1628 — 1691, a Sufi Master of the Light and  Sound of God (Qadriya Order) who lived in northern India.   The following ecstatic poems, translated from Punjabi, sometimes  contain the word “HU,” pronounced “WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” a name of God  which symbolizes and even mimics to some extent, the Kalma or Word,  also known as the Sound Current – the Music of the Spheres. In most all of his poems, in the original language every other line ends with a HOO, for example:

akkheen surkh te mooheen zardee,
har wallon dil aaheen HOO
Muhaa muhaar khushboi waalaa,
pahuntaa vanj kadaaeen HOO
Ishq mushk na chhuppe raihnde,
zaahir theen uthaaeen HOO
Naam faqeer tinhaan daa Baahoo,
jin laamakaanee jaaeen HOO

The name “Bahu” means, “with God.”

Then, in an ecstasy of love,
you will repeat the Name of HU constantly,
devoting every breath of your life
in contemplation of Him.
Only when your soul merges
in the Essence of the Lord,
will you deserve the name ‘Bahu.’

HU is within, HU is without,
HU pervades everything;
where then is Bahu to find HU [God]?
He has wounded his own heart,
he has tortured his own soul
with austerities of all manner,
with worship of all kinds.
Having read millions of books,
he has also come to be called ‘wise.’
But the name ‘faqir’ befits only him, O Bahu,
whose very grave breathes life!

Mystics live in this world as HU personified;
they practice the Name that is the essence of God.
They live in HU
beyond religion,
beyond belief and unbelief,
beyond life and death.
If you explore the Path within yourself,
you will find God nearby, through the Royal Vein.
He now lives in me and I in Him, O Bahu:
not only distance from Him
but even nearness to Him
have become irrelevant!

HU is within, HU is without,
HU always reverberates in my heart.
The wound in my heart aches constantly
with the unabating pain of HU’s love.
The darkness of ignorance departs
from the heart lit by HU [God, Allah].
I sacrifice myself to the one, O Bahu,
who has realized the significance of HU.

The Sole Dweller of The Void

NOEMAYA

The seer of truth has seen and withstood something whose sight can drive an ordinary man into psychosis and suicide. Such is the unforgiving blade of truth and why it’s veiled for the faint hearted.

The face of truth can’t be seen by any eye, for the eye of man melts in the face of the Absolute.

Objectivity is the consciousness of subjectivity, and subjectivity is the consciousness of objectivity.

Man is the site of this illusory entanglement and yet destined for transcendence, for man is the fountain of truth and he is holy only in being such.

The serious seeker must always understand himself with relation to the Absolute. One’s detachment from the relative is possible only through one’s attachment to the Absolute.

Man is both subjective and objective: He is subjective insofar as he participates in the relative; he is objective in light of his consciousness of the…
