[Sunlight] Let the Way be your seat of honor



By God, don't linger
in any spiritual benefit you have gained,
but yearn for more, like one suffering from illness
whose thirst for water is never quenched.
This Divine Court is the Plane of the Infinite.
Leave the seat of honor behind;
let the Way be your seat of honor.

Hamcho mostasqi kaz âbesh sir nist
bar har ânche yâfti billâh ma-'ist
Bi Nehâyat Hazratast in Bâr-gâh
sadr-râ bo-g'zâr sadretast râh
