Lalleshwari : Don’t flail about

Lalleshwari, also known as Laila or Lal Dad, is the much loved 14th c. CE mystic and poet of Kashmir. For a little more about her, see this post.

Don’t flail about like a man wearing a blindfold.
Believe me, He’s in here.
Come in and see for yourself.
You’ll stop hunting for Him all over.

Translation Ranjit Hoskote
