I Came

tehran019

By Khwaja Abdullah Ansari

From the un-manifest I came,

And pitched my tent, in the Forest of Material existence.

I passed through mineral and vegetable kingdoms,

Then my mental equipment carried me into the animal kingdom;

Having reached there I crossed beyond it;

Then in the crystal clear shell of human heart

I nursed the drop of self in a Pearl,

And in association with good men

Wandered round the Prayer House,

And having experienced that, crossed beyond it;

Then I took the road that leads to Him,

And became a slave at His gate;

Then the duality disappeared

And I became absorbed in Him
