It's so much easier to study than act

by Lalla

English version by Ranjit Hoskote
Original Language Kashmiri

It's so much easier to study than act,
to philosophise than go looking for the Self.
Losing the scriptures in the thick fog of my practice,
I stumbled on second sight.

-- from I Lalla: The Poems of Lal Ded, Translated by Ranjit Hoskote
