Abu Saeed : Beg for Love

For more about the 10th c. CE Sufi Abu Saeed Abil-Kheir, who called himself ‘Nobody, son of nobody,’ see this post.

Beg for Love.
Consider this burning, and those who
burn, as gifts from the Friend.
Nothing to learn.
Too much has already been said.
When you read a single page from
the silent book of your heart,
you will laugh at all this chattering,
all this pretentious learning.

Translation Vraje Abramian
