  • خود جهان آن یک کس است او ابله است ** هر ستاره بر فلک جزو مه است‌‌
  • Truly that One Person is (essentially) the (whole) world: he is unaware of evil (does not know evil as such). Every star in the sky is part of the Moon.

  • So long as the blossom is shining like a coat of mail, how should the fruits display their knobs?

  • میوه معنی و شکوفه صورتش ** آن شکوفه مژده میوه نعمتش‌‌ 2930

  • Concerning the qualities of the Pír (Spiritual Guide) and (the duty of) obedience to him.

  • Although thy slender body hath no strength, yet without the sun (of thy spirit) we have no light.
  • گر چه مصباح و زجاجه گشته‌‌ای ** لیک سر خیل دلی سر رشته‌‌ای‌‌
  • Although thou hast become the lighted wick and the glass (lamp), yet thou art the heart's leader (the Spiritual Guide): thou art the end of the thread (which serves as a clue).
  • چون سر رشته به دست و کام تست ** درهای عقد دل ز انعام تست‌‌
  • Inasmuch as the end of the thread is in thy hand and will, the pearls (of spiritual knowledge) on the heart's necklace are (derived) from thy bounty.
  • بر نویس احوال پیر راهدان ** پیر را بگزین و عین راه دان‌‌

  • پیر تابستان و خلقان تیر ماه ** خلق مانند شب‌‌اند و پیر ماه‌‌
  • The Pír is (like) summer, and (other) people are (like) the autumn month; (other) people are like night, and the Pír is the moon.
  • کرده‌‌ام بخت جوان را نام پیر ** کاو ز حق پیر است نز ایام پیر 2940

  • So old is he that he hath no beginning: there is no rival to such a unique Pearl.

  • آن رهی که بارها تو رفته‌‌ای ** بی‌‌قلاووز اندر آن آشفته‌‌ای‌‌
  • Without an escort you are bewildered (even) on a road you have travelled many times (before):
  • پس رهی را که ندیده ستی تو هیچ ** هین مرو تنها ز رهبر سر مپیچ‌‌ 2945
  • Do not, then, travel alone on a Way that you have not seen at all, do not turn your head away from the Guide.
  • گر نباشد سایه‌‌ی او بر تو گول ** پس ترا سر گشته دارد بانگ غول‌‌

  • غولت از ره افکند اندر گزند ** از تو داهی‌‌تر در این ره بس بدند
  • The ghoul will (entice you) from the Way (and) cast you into destruction: there have been in this Way many craftier than you (who have perished miserably).
  • از نبی بشنو ضلال رهروان ** که چشان کرد آن بلیس بد روان‌‌

  • استخوانهاشان ببین و مویشان ** عبرتی گیر و مران خر سویشان‌‌ 2950
  • Behold their bones and their hair! Take warning, and drive not your ass towards them!
