The Secret Rose Garden of Sa’d Ud Din Mahmud Shabistari : Mahmoud Shabestari :

When a wave strikes it, the world vanishes; and when the appointed time comes to heaven and stars, their being is lost in shabjstari being. The desert is limitless and endless — No one has seen its beginning or its end, And even if you wandered in it a hundred years You would not find yourself, or anyone else.


Those who live there have no feet or heads, Are neither “believers” nor “unbelievers. Drunk, without lips or mouth, on Truth They have thrown away all thoughts of name and fame, All talk of wonders, visions, spiritual states, Dreams, secret rooms, lights, miracles. When the idea enters the mind, it is a reminiscence of a former state, and passes on to interpretation.

Mahmoud Shabestari – Wikipedia

He who sees by illumination discerns God first in everything. But he who sees by logic only, and seeks to prove the necessary, is bewildered and sometimes travels backward in a circle, or is imprisoned in a chain of proofs. He seeks the dazzling sun by the dim light of a candle in the desert. If you pierce the heart of a single drop of water, from it will flow a hundred clear oceans; if you look intently at each speck of dust, in it you will see a thousand beings.

A gnat in its limbs is like an elephant; in name a drop of shabistaari resembles the Nile. In the heart of a barleycorn is stored a hundred harvests.


Within a millet-seed a world exists. In an insects wing is an ocean of life. A heaven is concealed in the pupil of an eye.
