Seeking Truth, I studied religionby Mansur al- Hallaj
English version by Ivan M. Granger
Original Language Arabic
Seeking Truth, I studied religion,
and discovered one single root
beneath the many branches.
Best, I've found, to be faithless
lest you become lost among the limbs.
Best to find that root, that root that reveals
all meaning and unity,
clear as day.
