Woh Jalwagah Tere Khakdan Se Door Nahin
O Prisoner of Space! You are not far from the Placeless Realm—
That Audience Hall is not far away from your planet.
Ghameen Na Ho Ke Tere Ashiyan Se Door Nahin
Grieve not, for a meadow that faces no threat
from the Autumn, is not far away from your nest.
Khadang-E-Jasta Hai Lekin Kaman Se Door Nahin
The gist of all Gnostic knowledge is merely this:
That life is an arrow spent and yet from the bow it is not too far!
Qadam Uthao, Ye Maqam Asman Se Door Nahin
Your station lies a little ahead of all the stars and Pleiades:
Move on, for it is not a long way from the skies.
Ye Baat Rahroo Nukta Dan Se Door Nahin
Lest he asks the guide to let him be!
It would be no surprise from a traveler who thinks too much.
