Muktabai : Though he has no form

Muktabai was born in the 13th c. CE in Maharashtra. She and her three brothers were all saints in the Nath tradition, which synthesised elements of Buddhism, Shaivism and yoga.

Though he has no form
my eyes saw him,

his glory is fire in my mind
that knows

his secret inner form
invented by the soul.

What is
beyond the mind

has no boundary.
In it our senses end.

Mukta says: Words cannot hold him
yet in him all words are.

Translation Willis Barnstone
