           I tried to find Him on the Christian cross,
           but He was not there; I went to Temple of Hindus
           and to the old pagodas, but I could not find
           a trace of Him anywhere.

           I searched on the mountains and in the valleys, but neither
           in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him.
           I went to the Caaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

           I questioned the scholars and philosophers,
           but He was beyond their understanding.

           I then looked into my heart and it was there were He
           dwelled that I saw Him; He was nowhere else to be found.
