*** NEWFULLDB 2.4M ***

1:Says Farid, I thought I was alone who suffered. I went on top of the house, And found every house on fire.

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, I thought I was alone who suffered

2:On the bank of a pool in the moor The swan has come to alight But he does not dip his beak to drink, He is eager to fly away.

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, On the bank of a pool in the moor

3:Says Farid, Why do you roam the jungles with thorns pricking your feet? Your Lord dwells in your heart. And you wander about in search of Him.

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Why do you roam the jungles?

4:The lanes are muddy and far is the house of the One I love so much. If I walk to Him I wet my rug, and remaining behind, I fail in my love!

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, The lanes are muddy and far is the house

5:You are my protection O Lord, my salvation: grant to Farid the blessing of Your adoration. [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, You are my protection O Lord

6:For evil give good, hold no revenge in the heart, Farid; your body will be free of sickness, your life be blessed. [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, For evil give good

7:Turn cheek of yours before that one who hits on your right: do not strike back, remember its the soul's play, its delight. [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Turn cheek

8:Seek the Perfect Master who is like a deep sea where pearl you will find no point seeking that One in the shallow water too! [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Like a deep sea

9:O Farid, rent your silken veil and put on a rough, woolen mantle; wear whatever clothes you must to meet the Beloved. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Wear whatever clothes you must

10:Farid says: Creator is in the creation and creation in the Creator! Why should we then be blaming others when that One is everywhere? [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Fathom the ocean

11:Do not speak a hurtful word, for in everyone lives the true Lord. Do not break anyone's heart, for each heart is a priceless pearl. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

12:His grace may fall upon us at anytime, it has no rules, you see? Some don't get it after rituals, vigils: others asleep, it hits suddenly! [2667.jpg] -- from Anthology of Great Sufi & Mystical Poets of Pakistan, by Paul Smith

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, His grace may fall upon us at anytime

13:Says Farid, you must fathom the ocean; it contains all you need and desire. Why soil your hands searching the little ponds? Says Farid, the Creator is in the creation and the creation in the Creator. Whom shall we blame when He is everywhere?

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, You must fathom the ocean

14:1. True lovers are those who love with all their hearts. Those who think of another, speak of another are called false lovers. Those steeped in the color of God's love abide in His care. Those who forget His name are a burden upon earth. Those whom He gathers become dervishes at His door. Exalted are the mothers of such men who gave them birth, blessed is their coming into the world. You are caring, infinite, boundless, endless. Those who have discerned this truth, their feet, their mouths I kiss. You are my protection O Lord, my salvation. Grant to Sheikh Farid the blessing of Your adoration. 2. Sheikh Farid speaks: dear friend, turn to Allah. This body shall become dust in the miserable, dark house of the grave. Today is the day of union, O Sheikh Farid, so tame these wild cranes of desire that inflame and incite the heart. We all know that we shall die and never again return. Then why do we love this false world and sell ourselves? We must ever speak of the true path; let us not speak lies. Let us walk the guru's course like humble disciples. Seeing strong, handsome youths swim across to the other side, a weak woman takes heart. Those who pursue only gold should be sawn in half. O Sheikh, no one in this world can stay alive forever. The place upon which I now sit, many have sat before and gone on their way. Cranes come to Katak, forest fires in Chet, lightning in Savan. In winter, fair arms of women adorn lovers' necks. All ephemeral things pass on. Think of this, O heart. That which takes six months to form is destroyed in an instant. The earth asks the sky, O Farid: how many boatmen have come and gone? The body merely rots in the grave, but it is the soul that must suffer the consequences. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

~ Baba Sheikh Farid, Raga Asa
