Tasmayi Sri Gurave Namah

New header for this day. A doha that keeps coming back to me, more often these days. Kabir describing, or rather, declaring his inability to describe the glory of the Guru. He is grandiloquent, almost:

सब धरती कागज करूँ, लेखनी सब बनराई
साथ समुद्र की मसीह करूँ, गुरु गुण लिखा ना जाए

Sab dharti kaagaj karun, lekhni sab banrai
Saath samudra ki masih karun, Guru gun likha na jaaye

Even if I made all of earth the paper, pens of all its trees
Sooty ink, the seven oceans... the Guru could not be described.

Clearly there is nothing to be said, except:
 नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्याम...
