Happy Secret.

Beauty radiated in eternity
With its light;
Love was born
And set the worlds alight.

It revealed itself to angels
Who knew not how to love;
It turned shyly towards man
And set fire to his heart.

Reason ventured to light
Its own flame and wear the crown,
But Your radiance
Turned the world
Of reason upside down.

Others got pleasure
As was their fate.
My heart was
Towards sadness inclined;
For me, sorrow was destined.

Beauty yearned to see itself;
It turned to man to sing its praise.

Hafiz wrote this song      

Drunk with Love,

From a heart

Carrying a happy secret.

Love and Light

If you are seeking closeness to the Beloved,

      love everyone.
Whether in their presence or absence,
        see only their good.

If you want to be as clear and refreshing as
         the breath of the morning breeze,
like the sun have nothing but warmth and light
           for everyone.

Life Companion

“Our union is like this:

You feel cold so I reach for a blanket to cover
our shivering feet.

A hunger comes into your body
so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes.

You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance and
I quickly kneel by your side offering you
a whole book as a
gift.

You ache with loneliness one night so much
you weep, and I say

here is a rope, tie it around me,
Hafiz will be your
companion for
life.”

Unexplained love

However much we describe and explain love,
When we fall in love we are ashamed of our words.

Explanation by the tongue makes most things clear,
But love unexplained is clearer.

Fear : the cheapest room

Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions.

Night of Creation

On the Night of Creation I was awake,
Busy at work while everyone slept.
I was there to see the first wink
and hear the first tale told.
I was the first one caught
in the hair of the Great Imposter.

Whirling around the still-point of ecstasy
I spun like the wheel of heaven.

How can I describe this to you?
You were born later.

I was a companion of that Ancient Lover;
Like a bowl with a broken rim
I endured his tyranny.
Why shouldn’t I be as lustrous as the King’s cup?
I have lived in the room of treasures.
Why shouldn’t this bubble become the sea?
I am the secret that lies at its bottom…

Shhhh… no more words
Hear only the voice within.
Remember, the first thing He said was:
“We are beyond words.”

Live this Dream.

Spend time with wine by a stream,

And

let sorrows….

flow away with the stream.

My life…..

like a rose….  

but of few days….

Youthful and joyous….

live this dream.― شمس الدین محمد حافظ /

Pankaj Mullick – Yeh Raatein

Pankaj Mullick

 ये रातें
ये रातें ये मौसम ये हँसना हँसाना, ये रातें

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

ये बहकी निगाहें
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये बहकी निगाहें, ये बहकी अदाएँ
ये आँखों के काजल में डूबी घटाएँ

फ़िज़ा के, फ़िज़ा के लबों पर, फ़िज़ा के
फ़िज़ा के, लबों पर ये चुप का फ़साना

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना
भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

चमन में, चमन में जो मिल के बनी है कहानी
हमारी मुहब्बत तुम्हारी जवानी, चमन में
ये दो गर्म साँसों का इक साथ आना
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम
ये बदली का चलना ये बूंदों की रुमझुम

ये मस्ती का आलम ये खोए से हम तुम
तुम्हारा, तुम्हारा मेरे साथ ये गुनगुनाना

मुझे, भूल जाना, इन्हें ना भुलाना
भुलाना भुलाना
ये रातें

अलफ़ाज़
चमन – small garden

This is a beautiful song of Romantic Life , favorite since last 40 Years .

off course in Indian Language Hindi yet Music is a Universal Language.

Love all.

Flow of Silence

Light of Truth

Now comes everlasting beauty.
Now comes abundant grace,
Now comes boundless purity.

The infinite treasure is shining,
The mighty ocean is roaring,
The morning of grace has come —
Morning? — No!
This is the eternal Light of God!

Who occupies this beautiful form?
Who is the ruler and the prince?
Who is this wise ? —
Nothing but a veil.

The wine of love removes these veils.
Drink with your head and your eyes —
Both your eyes,
and both your heads!

Your head of clay is from the earth,
Your pure awareness is from heaven.
O how vast is that treasure
which lies beneath the clay!
Every head you see depends on it!

Behind every atom of this world
hides an infinite universe.

O Saaqi, free us from the facade of this world.
Bring wine — barrels full!
Our eyes see too straight —
straight past the truth!

The Light of Truth shines from Tabriz.
It is beyond the beyond
yet it is here,
shining through every particle of this world.
