The moment I bowed down

by Bulleh Shah

English version by Fawad Usman Ali
Original Language Punjabi

The moment I bowed down
offering the prayers of passion
The thought of temples
and mosques vanished
Bulleh danced oblivious
of the world, to win his Friend
and lost all his false ego
One look of the Teacher
changed Bulleh forever
