The path consists of neither words nor deeds

by Hakim Sanai

English version by D.L. Pendlebury
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The path consists of neither words nor deeds:
only desolation can come from these,
and never any lasting edifice.
Sweetness and life are the words
of the man who treads this road in silence;
when he speaks it is not from ignorance,
and when he is silent it is not from sloth.


-- from The Walled Garden of Truth, by Hakim Sanai / Translated by David Pendlebu
Poetry Chaikhana | Hakim Sanai - The path consists of neither words nor deeds
