Persian Poem

Rating: 3.3
I am a pagan and a worshiper of love: the creed (of Muslims) I do not need;
Every vein of mine has become taunt like a wire,
the (Brahman's) girdle I do not need.
Leave from my bedside, you ignorant physician!
The only cure for the patient of love is the sight of his beloved -
other than this no medicine does he need.
If there be no pilot in our boat, let there be none:
We have god in our midst: the sea we do not need.
The people of the world say that Khusrau worships idols.
So he does, so he does; the people he does not need,
the world he does not need.

I am a pagan and a worshiper of love: the creed (of Muslims) I do not need; ... that's the universal godly thought; I salute the pious saint Amir Khusro

Simply mind blowing poem. Much like how Tamil Nainars [ Shiva sect] and Azhwar Poets [ Vaishnava sect] perceived God is in similar imagery. Fantastic. salam salam to the Great Poet laureate. Thanks.

The only cure for the patient of love is the sight of his beloved - other than this no medicine does he need.... //.... This is the essence of Sufi doctrine. Amazingly expressed.

If there is love, then you need nothing more in life. Leave from my bedside, you ignorant physician! The only cure for the patient of love is the sight of his beloved. Most wonderfully proclaimed.

depending on what the author meant by love, i might wholeheartedly agree with him. the tenach and new testament proclaim that love is first, and religion or creeds without it vain. in love is clarity and wholeness. one of the plainest statements about the divine is in 1 john—G-d is love. -GK
