  • 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.
  • خود جهان آن یک کس است او ابله است ** هر ستاره بر فلک جزو مه است‌‌
  • Therefore every fair form and shape (in the world) is crying, “Good news! good news! Lo, here comes the Spring.”

  • چون شکوفه ریخت میوه سر کند ** چون که تن بشکست جان سر بر زند
  • The fruit is the reality, the blossom is its form: the blossom is the good news, the fruit is the bounty (given as a reward) for it. 2930

  • 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.

  • Write down what appertains to the Pír (Guide) who knows the Way:—Choose the Pír and regard him as the essence of the Way.
  • بر نویس احوال پیر راهدان ** پیر را بگزین و عین راه دان‌‌
  • The Pír is (like) summer, and (other) people are (like) the autumn month; (other) people are like night, and the Pír is the moon.
  • پیر تابستان و خلقان تیر ماه ** خلق مانند شب‌‌اند و پیر ماه‌‌
  • I have bestowed on (my) young Fortune (Husámu’ddín) the name of Pír (old), because he is (made) old by the Truth, not (made) old by Time. 2940
  • کرده‌‌ام بخت جوان را نام پیر ** کاو ز حق پیر است نز ایام پیر
  • So old is he that he hath no beginning: there is no rival to such a unique Pearl.

  • Without an escort you are bewildered (even) on a road you have travelled many times (before):
  • آن رهی که بارها تو رفته‌‌ای ** بی‌‌قلاووز اندر آن آشفته‌‌ای‌‌
  • Do not, then, travel alone on a Way that you have not seen at all, do not turn your head away from the Guide. 2945

  • 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).

  • صد هزاران ساله راه از جاده دور ** بردشان و کردشان ادبار و عور
  • Behold their bones and their hair! Take warning, and drive not your ass towards them! 2950
  • استخوانهاشان ببین و مویشان ** عبرتی گیر و مران خر سویشان‌‌
  • Seize the neck of your ass (the flesh) and lead him towards the Way, towards the good keepers and knowers of the Way.
  • گردن خر گیر و سوی راه کش ** سوی ره‌‌بانان و ره دانان خوش‌‌
  • Beware! do not let your ass go, and do not remove your hand from him, because his love is for the place where green herbs are plentiful.
  • هین مهل خر را و دست از وی مدار ** ز آن که عشق اوست سوی سبزه‌‌زار
  • If you carelessly leave him free for one moment, he will go (many) leagues in the direction of the herbage.

  • این هوا را نشکند اندر جهان ** هیچ چیزی همچو سایه‌‌ی همرهان‌‌
  • How the Prophet, on whom be peace, enjoined ‘Alí—may God make his person honoured—saying, “When every one seeks to draw nigh to God by means of some kind of devotional act, do thou seek the favour of God by associating with His wise and chosen servant, that thou mayst be the first of all to arrive (to gain access to Him).”
  • وصیت کردن رسول صلی الله علیه و اله و سلم علی را علیه السلام که چون هر کسی به نوع طاعتی تقرب جوید به حق تو تقرب جوی به نصیحت عاقل و بنده‌‌ی خاص تا از همه پیش قدم تر باشی‌‌
  • The Prophet said to ‘Alí, “O ‘Alí, thou art the Lion of God, thou art a courageous knight,
  • گفت پیغمبر علی را کای علی ** شیر حقی پهلوانی پر دلی‌‌
  • But do not even rely upon thy lion-heartedness: come into the shade of the palm tree of hope. 2960

  • Come into the shade (protection) of the Sage whom no conveyer can carry off from the Way.

  • If I should tell of his qualities until the Resurrection, do not seek (expect) any conclusion and end to them.

  • O ‘Alí, above all devotional acts in the Way (of God) do thou choose the shadow (protection) of the chosen favourite of God. 2965
  • یا علی از جمله‌‌ی طاعات راه ** بر گزین تو سایه‌‌ی خاص اله‌‌
  • Every one took refuge in some act of devotion and discovered for themselves some means of deliverance.
  • هر کسی در طاعتی بگریختند ** خویشتن را مخلصی انگیختند
  • Go thou, take refuge in the shadow of the Sage, that thou mayst escape from the Enemy that opposes (thee) in secret.
  • تر برو در سایه‌‌ی عاقل گریز ** تا رهی ز آن دشمن پنهان ستیز
  • Of all acts of devotion this is the best for thee: (thereby) thou wilt gain precedence over every one that has outstripped (the rest).”
  • از همه طاعات اینت بهتر است ** سبق یابی بر هر آن سابق که هست‌‌
  • When the Pír has accepted thee, take heed, surrender thyself (to him): go, like Moses, under the authority of Khizr.
  • چون گرفتت پیر هین تسلیم شو ** همچو موسی زیر حکم خضر رو
  • Bear patiently whatever is done by a Khizr who is without hypocrisy, in order that Khizr may not say, “Begone, this is (our) parting.” 2970

  • Though he stave in the boat, do not speak a word; though he kill a child, do not tear thy hair.
  • گر چه کشتی بشکند تو دم مزن ** گر چه طفلی را کشد تو مو مکن‌‌
  • God has declared that his (the Pír's) hand is as His own, since He gave out (the words) the Hand of God is above their hands.
  • دست او را حق چو دست خویش خواند ** تا يد الله فوق أيدیهم براند
  • The Hand of God causes him (the child) to die and (then) brings him to life. What of life? He makes him a spirit everlasting.
  • دست حق میراندش زنده‌‌ش کند ** زنده چه بود جان پاینده‌‌ش کند
  • If any one, by rare exception, traversed this Way alone (without a Pír), he arrived (at his goal) through the help of the spiritual influence of the Pírs.
  • هر که تنها نادرا این ره برید ** هم به عون همت پیران رسید
  • The hand of the Pír is not withdrawn from the absent (those who are not under his authority): his hand is naught but the grasp of God. 2975
  • دست پیر از غایبان کوتاه نیست ** دست او جز قبضه‌‌ی الله نیست‌‌
