[Sunlight] The pearl in the breast



The Universal Soul met a separate soul
and placed a pearl on her breast.
Through such contact the soul, like Mary,
became pregnant with a heart-winning messiah.


Jân-e koll bâ jân-e jozo âsib kard
jân azu dorri setad dar jib kard
Hamcho Maryam jân az ân âsib-e jib
hâmeleh shod az masih-e delfarib

-- Mathnawi II: 1183-1184
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
