It is reported of one Mohammedan saint, Farid, that he was passing near Benares where Kabir lived. Followers of Farid said, “It would be just wonderful if you and Kabir met. For us it would be a blessing.”
The same thing happened to Kabir and his followers. They heard that Farid was passing, so they said to Kabir that it would be good if he would ask Farid to stay a few days in the ashram.
Farid’s disciples said, “You both talking would be a great opportunity for us, we would like to hear what two enlightened persons say to each other.”
Farid laughed when they said this and replied, “There will be a meeting, but I don’t think there is going to be any talking. But let us see.”
Kabir said, “Ask Farid. Let him come and stay — but whosoever speaks first will prove that he is not enlightened.”
Farid came; Kabir received him. They laughed and embraced each other. Then they sat in silence. Two days Farid was there, and for many hours they sat together, with the disciples restless, waiting for them to say something, utter something. But not a single word was communicated.
The third day Farid left and Kabir came to see him off. They again laughed, embraced each other, parted.
The moment they parted Farid’s disciples gathered around him and said, “What nonsense! What wastage of time. We were hoping that something was going to happen. Nothing happened. Why did you suddenly become so dumb? You talk so much to us.”
Farid replied, “All that I know, he knows also. Nothing is to be said. I looked into his eyes, and he is there, where I am. Whatsoever he has seen I have seen; whatsoever he has realized I have realized. There is nothing to be said.”
Two enlightened persons cannot talk because they know the same. Nothing is to be said.
