“Aankhen  uthin to dekha kaynaat jal rahi thi
jab ye jhukin to tum the aur kuchh bhi nahin”

Roughly translated from Hindi:
When the eyes rose outwardly they saw the entire universe aflame.
When they opened inwards, it was you (the one reality of life) and nothing but you.

Eyes wear the wings of time to fly beyond the cry of human desires, reveries and the realities, penetrating into the boundaries of the visible universe into the invisible realms. Eyes symbolize seeing and light, and therefore depicting consciousness itself, The eye is the part of us that beholds the universe and sees our place in it. It is knowledge, awareness and wisdom. The eye takes in light, the pure energy of the universe, and presents it to the inner spirit. It is the gateway, the very union, between the self and the cosmos. It has been said that the eye is the window to the soul.
