Sarmad : He and I are one

The mystic Sarmad (d. 1659 CE) was buried near the Jama Masjid in Delhi after being martyred by the Emperor Aurangzeb. For more about him, see this earlier post.

He and I are one,
     like the word and its meaning.
Behold union in separation,
     like the eye and vision.
Not for a moment is He separate from me —
Behold us together everywhere,
     like flower and fragrance.

Translation Isaac A. Ezekiel
