Bulleh Shah - Remove duality and do away with all disputes

Remove duality and do away with all disputes

by Bulleh Shah

English version by J. R. Puri and T. R. Shangari
Original Language Punjabi

Remove duality and do away with all disputes;
The Hindus and Muslims are not other than He.
Deem everyone virtuous, there are no thieves.
For, within every body He himself resides.
How the Trickster has put on a mask!


-- from Bulleh Shah: The Love-Intoxicated Iconoclast (Mystics of the East series), by J. R. Puri / Tilaka Raja Puri
Poetry Chaikhana | Bulleh Shah - Remove duality and do away with all disputes

The face of god is Unity
The masks of god is duality.
