Yunus Emre Poems
Comments about Yunus Emre
Knowledge Should Mean A Full Grasp Of Knowledge
Knowledge should mean a full grasp of knowledge:
Knowledge means to know yourself, heart and soul.
If you have failed to understand yourself,
Then all of your reading has missed its call.
What is the purpose of reading those books?
So that Man can know the All-Powerful.
If you have read, but failed to understand,
Then your efforts are just a barren toil.
Don't boast of reading, mastering science
Or of all your prayers and obeisance.
If you don't identify Man as God,
All your learning is of no use at all.
The true meaning of the four...
I Used To Yearn For God
I used to yearn for God;
If I found Him, what then?
Day and night I shed tears;
If I laugh now, what then?
I was a ball rolling
On the holy men's field;
Now I am a bat on
The sultan's course, what then?
