Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye.
(I searched for the crooked, met not a single oneWhen searched myself, "I" found the crooked one)

Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kutch Hoye Mali Seenche Sau Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye
(Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens Gardner may water a hundred buckets, fruit arrives only in its season)

Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Atidoor
(In vain is the eminence, just like a date treeNo shade for travelers, fruit is hard to reach)

Jaise Til Mein Tel Hai, Jyon Chakmak Mein Aag Tera Sayeen Tujh Mein Hai, Tu Jaag Sake To Jaag
(Like seed contains the oil, fire in flint stone Your God is within you, realize if you can)

Mangan Maran Saman Hai, Mat Koi Mange Beekh Mangan Se Marna Bhala, Yeh Satguru Ki Seekh
(Begging is like perishing, none should go imploring It is better to die than beg, this is true teaching)

Dukh Mein Simran Sab Kare, Sukh Mein Kare Na KoyeJo Sukh Mein Simran Kare, Tau Dukh Kahe Ko Hoye
( In anguish everyone prays to Him, in joy does none To One who prays in happiness, how sorrow can come)

Akath Kahani Prem Ki, Kutch Kahi Na Jaye Goonge Keri Sarkara, Baithe Muskae
( Inexpressible is the story of Love It cannot be revealed by words Like the dumb eating sweet-meat Only smiles, the sweetness he cannot tell)

Chinta Aisee Dakini, Kat Kaleja Khaye Vaid Bichara Kya Kare, Kahan Tak Dawa Lagaye
(Stress is the evil that eats into one's heart What the doctor can do, what remedy to impart?)

Jab Tun Aaya Jagat Mein, Log Hanse Tu Roye Aise Karni Na Kari, Pache Hanse Sab Koye( When you were born in this world Everyone laughed while you criedDon't do anything such That they laugh when you are gone)

Quotes from Rumi

"When I am with you, we stay up all night.When you're not here, I can't go to sleep.Praise God for those two insomnias!And the difference between them."

"It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I've gone and come back, I'll find it at home."

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."

You are in love with me, I shall make you perplexed. Do not build much, for I intend to have you in ruins. If you build two hundred houses in a manner that the bees do; I shall make you as homeless as a fly. If you are the mount Qaf in stability. I shall make you whirl like a millstone.

If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?

How could you reach the pearl by only looking at the sea? If you seek the pearl, be a diver: the diver needs several qualities: he must trust his rope and his life to the Friend's hand, he must stop breathing, and he must jump.

The soul which cannot endure fire and smoke won't find the Secret.

"This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet."
