Be the living expression of God’s kindness;
kindness in your face,
kindness in your eyes,
kindness in your smile
#LockDownDay – 118
सूफी परंपरा में ईश्वर को हमेशा प्रेमी के रूप में देखा गया है. दरवाजा केवल उन लोगों के लिए ही खुलता है, जो अपने को उसके प्रेम में खो चुके होते हैं.
Chanakya was an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal advisor. He is traditionally identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise, the Arthashastra, a text dated to roughly between the 3rd century BCE and the 3rd century CE. As such, he is considered the pioneer of the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics. His works were lost near the end of the Gupta Empire and not rediscovered until the early twentieth century. ….Wikipedia
The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, XIII
I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.
The distracted birds
can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.
A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.
Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV
रूमी की पंक्तियों आपको क्या कहतीं हैं? ज़रूर बतायें. आप सबों के विचार मेरे लिए बेहद मायने रखते हैं.
What did Rumi mean when he said:
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.
If you want a clear mirror,
and see the shameless truth,
which the mirror reflects.
If metal can be polished
to a mirror-like finish,
what polishing might the mirror
of the heart require?
Between the mirror and the heart
is this single difference:
the heart conceals secrets,
while the mirror does not.
Be grateful for your life, every detail of it,
and your face will come to shine like a sun,
and everyone who sees it will
be made glad and peaceful.
❤ ❤ Rumi
Face is a meaning, crafted,
except the gloominess.
Decode the face;
See the origin and the quintessence.
Ice, you see, you can’t know its origin.
When melted, eventually, emerge it’s essence.
If you knew yourself for even one moment,
if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face,
maybe you wouldn’t slumber so deeply in that house of clay.
Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice!
For you are the secret Treasure-bearer,
and always have been. Didn’t you know?”
❤ ❤ Rumi
Like the Sun I shine on those who are forsaken.
I may look drunk and disheveled but I speak the Truth.
Tear off the mask. Your face is glorious.
Your heart may be cold as stone
but I will warm it with my raging fire.
Beloved Rumi ❤
