'You are the mover and the movement. You move, even in your stillness you move. And you are the moved who is far away, the unmoved spark of intimacy far inside you, far away from us, and yet it is you alone whom we find nearest to ourselves; you are where the heart is, the bodies claim to be.' All That Was And Is, Bibhu Padhi's mystical collection of poems, is based on the ancient Indian sacred texts, the Upanishads. Each poem is a non-cerebral response on a single Upanishadic mantra. They are quiet like the mantras themselves, trying to unravel and, in turn, define the Supreme and its relationship with the world and the individual or the jiva. Through these lyrical meditations, everything is absorbed into a dreamlike consciousness.
