An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



ban tse Jawhar rangi disbar ... 

Let the immanent soul dwell in you
Like light in a jewel, so that all barriers
Are removed that separate you from God.
You can't remain end eshed for ever
In the world of sinuous curls !
Emerge from this enveloping darkness
And locate the fountain head of beauty.
Better be a short-lived flower, radiating charm,
Than a lasting thorn in the garden of life.
How did the lonesome rain drop become a pearl ?
He plunged fearlessly from the clouds
Into the depths of the stormy sea.
Maybe, you've mastered the mystical truth;
But where is that bowl of your heart's blood
That you are supposed to drink ?
God has endowed man with two talents - 
The ability to live in a hole like a worm,
Or soar like a winged bird.
The world admires you now for perfect wisdom
If you can win people's confidence,
And pass off glass beads as pearls !
The times have changed, for in the world
Of ever-growing competitor,
And science making inroads into faith,
All religions have lost their hold.
Remember, Mahjoor ! Now he alone
Will acquire eminence, who dedicates his life
To the fulfillment of his desires.
