A description of the experience

I, Lalla, The Poems of Lal Ded translated by Ranjit Hoskote

Gourmet meals and elegant clothes can’t buy you peace of mind.
Only they climb higher, who have left delusion behind.
They know Death is fire behind a smiling mask
and Desire is a tough lender who talks sweet

The source of the experience
