by Hakim Sanai
English version by D.L. Pendlebury
Original Language Persian/Farsi
My friend, everything existing
exists through him;
your own existence is a mere pretence.
No more nonsense! Lose yourself,
and the hell of your heart becomes a heaven.
Lose yourself, and anything can be accomplished.
Your selfishness is an untrained colt.
-- from The Walled Garden of Truth, by Hakim Sanai / Translated by David Pendlebury
