Lalleshwari (1320 – 1392 / Pandrethan, Srinagar, Kashmir / India)
You Will Not Know Peace of Mind
You will not know peace of mind
if you a kingdom gain,
Nor will you gain content or rest
if you give it away.
Only the man, free from desire,
will never die.
Only he has true knowledge
Who, though alive, is as one dead,
dead to all desire.
