O God, Your mercy is a boundless ocean:
by Sharafuddin Maneri
(1263 - 1381) Timeline

English version by
Paul Jackson


Muslim / Sufi
14th Century

O God, Your mercy is a boundless ocean:
I would be satisfied with only one drop of it.
If the impurity of all sinful creatures
Were to be immersed but once in that vast expanse,
It would not darken such a timeless ocean:
Rather, the work of the world would turn into light!

Sharafuddin Maneri: O God, Your mercy is a boundless ocean:

I don't know whether those were Buddha's last words
They would have been a good choice
Great words from a great teacher.
