A description of the experience

Saadi - The Gulistan of Sa‘di – 06 from The Manners of Kings Solitude

O brother, the world remains with no one.
Bind the heart to the Creator, it is enough.
Rely not upon possessions and this world
Because it has cherished many like you and slain them.
When the pure soul is about to depart,
What boots it if one dies on a throne or on the ground?
