[Sunlight] Unconcerned with kingship



Regard as a king someone unconcerned with kingship.
Only he who is an enemy to his own existence
possesses real existence.


Shâh ân dân ku ze shâhi fâreghast
bi mah o khurshid nuresh bâzeghast
Makhzan ân dârad keh makhzan-e zât-e ust
hasti u dârad keh bâ hasti `adust

-- Mathnawi II: 1469-1470
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Daylight"
Threshold Books, 1994
