Going To Makkah Is Not The Ultimate - Poem by Bulleh Shah

Going to Makkah is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of prayers are offered

Going to River Ganges is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of cleansing (Baptisms) are done

Going to Gaya is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of worships are done

Bulleh Shah the ultimate is
When the "I" is removed from the heart!

    No! Bullah! , Removing I will make a person live like a dog, It is I that makes us Adam, removing it will make us fools,

    Khudi main gum hai khudai talaash kar ghafil

    You want us to become godless lovers,

    Did you forget Mansur Al-Hallaj?
