A description of the experience
Yassawi - from HIKMET 72 & 73
A thousand tales reside in the garden of Love,
The nightingale's sweet song fills it with joy,
Aspiring to the field of Ma’rifat,
Day and night, creating an ocean of tears.
Those who heard the song of the nightingale,
Cutting the mountains of pride into pieces,
Forget the joys of the world,
Lamenting, wash their faces with tears……………….
Drinking the cup of longing, demolished me,
Exhausted, throwing myself into the fire of love,
Almighty God, if it is Thy wish, I desire see the Face of God,
I want to enter the palace of Darussalam.
