  • Penetration (of sight) becomes the (means of) awakening (stimulating) every sense, (so that) perception (of the spiritual) becomes familiar to (all) the senses.
  • صدق بیداری هر حس می‏شود ** حسها را ذوق مونس می‏شود
  • The beginning of the gnostic's illumination by the Light which sees the invisible world.
  • آغاز منور شدن عارف به نور غیب بین‏
  • When one sense in (the course of its) progress has loosed (its) bonds, all the rest of the senses become changed. 3240
  • چون یکی حس در روش بگشاد بند ** ما بقی حسها همه مبدل شوند
  • When one sense has perceived things that are not objects of sense-perception, that which is of the invisible world becomes apparent to all the senses.

  • When one sheep of the flock has jumped over a stream, then they all jump across on each other's heels.
  • چون ز جو جست از گله یک گوسفند ** پس پیاپی جمله ز آن سو بر جهند
  • Drive the sheep, thy senses, to pasture: let them browse on (the pasture indicated in the text)—He who hath brought forth the herbage,
  • گوسفندان حواست را بران ** در چرا از أخرج المرعی‏ چران‏
  • That there they may browse on hyacinth and wild-rose; that they may make their way to the garden of the Realities;
  • تا در آن جا سنبل و نسرین چرند ** تا به گلزار حقایق ره برند
  • (That) every sense of thine may become an apostle to the senses (of others), so that severally they may go towards that Paradise; 3245
  • هر حست پیغمبر حسها شود ** تا یکایک سوی آن جنت رود
  • (And then those) senses will tell their secret to thy senses, without the proper meaning, without tongue, and without metaphor;
  • حسها با حس تو گویند راز ** بی‏زبان و بی‏حقیقت بی‏مجاز
  • For this proper meaning admits of (different) interpretations, and this guesswork is the source of (vain) imaginings;
  • کاین حقیقت قابل تاویلهاست ** وین توهم مایه‏ی تخییلهاست‏
  • (But in the case of) that truth which is (perceived) from intuition, there is no room for any interpretation.
  • آن حقیقت را که باشد از عیان ** هیچ تاویلی نگنجد در میان‏
  • When every sense has become subject to thy sense, the heavenly spheres cannot avoid (obedience to) thee.
  • چون که هر حس بنده‏ی حس تو شد ** مر فلک‏ها را نباشد از تو بد

  • چون تنازع در فتد در تنگ کاه ** دانه آن کیست آن را کن نگاه‏
  • The heavenly sphere, then, is the husk, and the light of the spirit is the kernel. This (sky) is visible, that (spirit) is concealed; (but) do not stumble on this account.
  • پس فلک قشر است و نور روح مغز ** این پدید است آن خفی زین رو ملغز
  • The body is manifest, the (vital) spirit is concealed: the body is as the sleeve, the spirit as the hand.
  • جسم ظاهر روح مخفی آمده ست ** جسم همچون آستین جان همچو دست‏
  • Again, the intellect flies (moves) in a more occult manner than the (vital) spirit: (your mental) perception makes its way to (apprehends) the (vital) spirit sooner (than it apprehends the intellect).
  • باز عقل از روح مخفی‏تر بود ** حس سوی روح زوتر ره برد
  • (If) you see a movement, you know that he (who moves) is alive; (but) this you do not know, that he is full of intellect, 3255

  • Until regulated movements appear, and he by means of knowledge turns the motion of copper into gold.

  • From manual actions being conformable (to reason) you may perceive that there is intellect (behind them).
  • ز آن مناسب آمدن افعال دست ** فهم آید مر ترا که عقل هست‏
  • The spirit (that partakes) of Divine inspiration is more concealed than the intellect, because it is of the Unseen: it belongs to that side.
  • روح وحی از عقل پنهان‏تر بود ** ز انکه او غیب است او ز ان سر بود
  • The intellect of Ahmad (Mohammed) was not hidden from any one; (but) his spirit of (prophetic) inspiration was not apprehended by every soul.
  • عقل احمد از کسی پنهان نشد ** روح وحیش مدرک هر جان نشد
  • The spirit of prophecy also has actions conformable (to reason), (but) the intellect does not apprehend (them), for that (spirit) is exalted (above intellectual apprehension). 3260
  • روح وحیی را مناسبهاست نیز ** در نیابد عقل کان آمد عزیز
  • Sometimes he (the man of intellect) regards (the actions of one endowed with the spirit) as madness, sometimes he is bewildered, since it (all) depends on his becoming that (other one);
  • گه جنون بیند گهی حیران شود ** ز انکه موقوف است تا او آن شود
  • As (for example) the intellect of Moses was troubled by seeing the reasonable actions of Khadir.
  • چون مناسبهای افعال خضر ** عقل موسی بود در دیدش کدر
  • His actions seemed unreasonable to Moses, since he (Moses) had not his (Khadir's) state (of Divine inspiration).
  • نامناسب می‏نمود افعال او ** پیش موسی چون نبودش حال او
  • Inasmuch as the intellect of Moses becomes tied up (perplexed and helpless) in (the matter of) the mysterious (inspiration), who (what) is the intellect of a (mere) mouse, O excellent (reader)?

  • مشتری علم تحقیقی حق است ** دایما بازار او با رونق است‏
  • He (the owner of real knowledge) has closed his lips (and is) enraptured in (his) trading: the purchasers are without end, for God hath purchased.
  • لب ببسته مست در بیع و شری ** مشتری بی‏حد که الله اشتری‏
  • The angels purchase Adam's teaching; the devils and Jinn are not privileged to receive it.
  • درس آدم را فرشته مشتری ** محرم درسش نه دیو است و پری‏
  • Adam, inform them of the Names, give (them) teaching, explain the mysteries of God, hair by hair.
  • آدم أنبئهم بأسما درس گو ** شرح کن اسرار حق را مو به مو
  • Such a person as is short-sighted, plunged in variability and without steadfastness, 3270
  • آن چنان کس را که کوته بین بود ** در تلون غرق و بی‏تمکین بود
  • I called a “mouse,” because his place is in the earth (of the body): earth is the place of living for the mouse.
  • موش گفتم ز انکه در خاک است جاش ** خاک باشد موش را جای معاش‏
  • He knows (many) ways, but (only) underground: he has pierced the earth in every direction.
  • راهها داند ولی در زیر خاک ** هر طرف او خاک را کرده ست چاک‏
  • The mouse-soul is naught but a nibbler: to the mouse is given a mind proportionate to its need,
  • نفس موشی نیست الا لقمه رند ** قدر حاجت موش را عقلی دهند
  • Because without need the Almighty God does not give anything to any one.
  • ز انکه بی‏حاجت خداوند عزیز ** می‏نبخشد هیچ کس را هیچ چیز
  • If the earth had not been needed by the (inhabitants of the) world, the Lord of all beings would not have created any (earth); 3275
  • گر نبودی حاجت عالم زمین ** نافریدی هیچ رب العالمین‏
  • And if this quaking earth had not needed mountains, He would not have created them sublime (as they are);
  • وین زمین مضطرب محتاج کوه ** گر نبودی نافریدی پر شکوه‏
  • And if there had not been need of the heavenly spheres also, He would not have created from non-existence the Seven Skies.
  • ور نبودی حاجت افلاک هم ** هفت گردون نافریدی از عدم‏
  • The sun and moon and these stars—how did they come plain into view except through need?
  • آفتاب و ماه و این استارگان ** جز به حاجت کی پدید آمد عیان‏
  • Need, then, is the noose for (all) things that exist: He (God) gives ti Man instruments in proportion to his need.
  • پس کمند هستها حاجت بود ** قدر حاجت مرد را آلت دهد
  • Therefore quickly augment thy need, O needy one, in order that the Sea of Bounty may surge up in loving kindness. 3280
  • پس بیفزا حاجت ای محتاج زود ** تا بجوشد در کرم دریای جود
  • These beggars (are) on the (public) road, and every sufferer (among them) is displaying his need to the people—
