“Parrh parrh alam fazal hoya, Kadee apnay aap nu parrhaya ye naeen
If you Read a lot and became a scholar,  But [he] never read himself”
-What a beautiful work by Sufi poet Bulleh Shah :

Until you have surrendered, until you have let go of your Ego, until then there is work to do…..

No matter what you have achieved, gained, learned… if you have not worked on yourself, have not let go of your ego, …..

A quote from my grandfather, “A blind man could do PHD on light but until he has seen light, what does he know about light?”

“Going to Makkah is not the ultimate, Even if hundreds of prayers are offered
Going to River Ganges is not the ultimate. Even if hundreds of cleansing (Baptisms) are done
Bulleh Shah the ultimate is, When the “I” is removed from the heart
[He] goes enters into the temple & mosque, But [he] never entered into his own heart”

Become ONE with him……..

“Jogi meyrey naal naal
May jogi day naal naal
Nee may jana jogi day naal

Jogi is with me
I am with Jogi
I’m going together with Jogi”

1) Makeh gaya gal mukde naheen
2) Pawain so so jummay parrh aeey

Going to Makkah is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of prayers are offered

3) Ganga gaya gal mukde naheen
4) Pawain so so gotey khaeey

Going to River Ganges is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of cleansing (Baptisms) are done

5) Gaya gaya gal mukde naheen
6) Pawain so so pand parrhaeey

Going to Gaya is not the ultimate
Even if hundreds of worships are done

8 ) Jadon May nu dilon gawaeey

Bulleh Shah the ultimate is
When the “I” is removed from the heart

But [he] never entered into his own heart

He never wrestled with his own ego

16) Jayrra ghar baitha onu pharrya ye naeen

Bulleh Shah he grabs for heavenly flying things
But doesn’t grasp the one who’s sitting at home

18) Parr raat nu jaagan kutay, tay to utay

Religious scholars stay awake at night
But dogs stay awake at night, higher than you

20) Fayr ja larraa which sutay, tay to utay

They don’t cease from barking at night
Then they go sleep in yards, higher than you

22) Pawain maro so so jutay, tay to utay

They [dogs] don’t leave the beloved’s doorstep
Even if they’re beaten hundreds of times, higher than you

24) Naien tay bazi lay gaay kutay, tay to utay

Bulleh Shah get up and make up with the beloved
Otherwise dogs will win the contest, better than you

25) Raanjha chaak na aakho kurryo
26) Nee aynu chaak kehndee sharmawan

O friends, don’t call Ranjha a shepherd
I shy away from calling him a shepherd

27) May jaee aan lakh heeraan iss nu

I am like a thousand Heers to him
Who am I, like countless others

30) Tay may Heer sayal sada waan

He’s the ruler of Hazara’s throne
And I am forever the plain Heer

32) Tay may chaak dee chaak ho jawan

Bulleh Shah may God hear my wail
And I’ll become shepherded by the Shepherd

34) Aey ney anokha bhayche wataya

Ranjha became a Jogi and arrived
He exchanged into a unique disguise

36) Nee may jana Jogi dey naal

He changed his name from Ahad (One God) to Ahmad (Prophet Mohammad PBUH)
I’m going together with Jogi

Someone’s with someone else, this one’s with that one
I’m together with Jogi

The one with whom I connected my heart
I became just like him, O friends
