Day Of Reading

Spread the love

My sinus was stuffed when I woke up by around noon time today. It was agood weekend. I liked it as I felt good except for the right blockedsinus with a light pain on my right side of the head. I didn’t writeanything. I was just thinking about many, many things. Read poemsonline… Those are different poems than the usual ones one may see.Those are Sufi poems. I don’t want to give a lot of explanation aboutwhat is Sufism or who is a Sufi. People many times find it hard tounderstand what is Sufism. It is Islamic mysticism. There is poetry,music and meditation all involved in Sufism. I was reading translationsof Sufi poetry.

Here are couple of poems by Kwajah Moinuddin Hasan Chishti  (d1229 A.D) beloved spiritual leader who carried the Chishti lineage toIndia. I’ve visited the shrine of Kwajah Moinuddin Hasan Chishti when Ivisited Delhi for my visa stamping in May. Irrespective of religiousbelief all people come to Ajmeer where the shrine is. He is also knownas ‘Sultan e Hind” the emperor of India.
The noise of the lover is only up to
       the time when he has not seen his Beloved.
Once he sees the Beloved, he becomes calm and quiet,
      just as the rivers are boisterous before they join the ocean,
but when they do so, there are becalmed forever.

The one who knows becomes perfect only when
      all else is removed from in-between him and the Friend.
Either he remains or the Friend.

  1. im writing a paper on how truth and happiness are not the same
    as seen in Brave New World. for some reason this seemed relevant when i began typing.. maube youll see why, because i sure dont.

    i like these petite poems. they make me feel strong with their truth.
    thank you for understanding me. sometimes i feel like no one does and that makes me very typical.

  2. Well they aren’t like new new poems but yea, so I dunno I guess they are coming through ok…I think I have writers block or something cause I’m having trouble writing lately. But I will try to post one of them. Hope you have fun in what is left of the weekend.
