Seek knowledge which unravels mysteries

Good Night Buddha
Love this picture "Good Night Buddha" by h.koppdelaney

That friend brought me up with great care and attention,
He sewed me a garment from skin and veins.
The body is like a cloak and my heart in it like a mystic,
The world is like a monastery and he is my guide.

Seek knowledge which unravels mysteries
Before your life comes to close
Give up that non-existence which looks like existence,
Seek that existence which looks like non-existence!

From Divani Shams, "Life and Work of Muhammad Jalal-ud Din Rumi"
by Afzal Iqbal
