Fool, you won't find your way out by praying from a bookby Lalla
English version by Ranjit Hoskote
Original Language Kashmiri
Fool, you won't find your way out by praying from a book.
The perfume on your carcass won't give you a clue.
Focus on the Self.
That's the best advice you can get.
|-- from I Lalla: The Poems of Lal Ded, Translated by Ranjit Hoskote|
