Purification

by Meher Baba

English version by Naosherwan Anzar
Original Language Persian/Farsi or Urdu or Hindi

Beloved, bless your love with a kind word.
He has lost his soul, now his body is being consumed.

In the realm of love, both selves are wiped out.
The moth is consumed,
just as the flame itself is extinguished.

The destiny of mankind
was foreseen on the day of creation.
Alter the design, if you have the courage.

First cleanse yourself,
purify your heart, then counsel others,
O Huma, but first you must change
the form of your speech.

-- from The Beloved Sings of Love: Songs of Meher Baba (Audio CD), Translated by Naosherwan Ansar
