      Shams of Tabriz quoted by Julian P. Johnson
      in, With A Great Master In India

      To me came the Sound incomparable,
      which comes neither from within
      nor from without;
      Neither does it come from the left,
      nor from the right,
      Nor from the back,
      nor from the front.
      You will ask, then,
      whence does it come?
      It comes from the direction
      you are seeking to go.
      You will ask, then,
      which way shall I face?
      The side from which
      the bridegroom cometh.
      That direction from which
      the parched fish comes to life
      with the waters of immortality;
      That direction whence the hand of Moses
      became bright like the shining moon.
      The direction whence ripeness
      comes to fruit;
      The direction from which stones
      become diamonds.

      Be silent and listen
      to the Five Sounds from Heaven.
      The Heaven which is beyond
      all senses and directions.
      Every moment of life this wondrous Sound
      reaches down from the Courts of Heaven.
      Fortunate above all the children of men
      is he who hears its enchanting melodies.
