Tariqua poem by Afraaz Mulji


ictI am the path home

towards myself

inward journey

Tempered by the fire of longing

I will taste the ultimate essence

my thirst will be quenched

my hunger will be sated

I shall mount the throne

fashioned from wisdom

My pilgrimage has only just begun…

In the seat of the soul

Exists a pool

Drink the elixir

It is the elixir of love

The ambrosia of the gods

is baked from the ocean

Of scalding light

And divine wisdom.

Be glutinous,

eat liberally.

~ Afraaz Mulji
