Once I was bathed in the Light

By Sarmad, real name - Muhammad Sa'id (1590 - 1661), a Persian mystic, poet and saint, who described himself in poems as a Sufi, a Hindu priest, a Buddhist monk, a rabbi, an infidel and a Muslim.

Once I was bathed in the Light of Truth within,

I abandoned all planning and scheming.

If you, too, seek this transcendence,

leave your lower self —

then from head to foot

you will see your whole being as God's refulgence.
