One Point Contains All by Bulleh Shah

One Point Contains All by Bulleh Shah

English version by Mahmood Jamal
Original Language Punjabi

One point contains all;
Learn about the One, forget the rest.
Forget hell and the terrible grave;
Leave the ways of sin and purify
Your heart.
That’s how the argument is spun:
It’s all contained in One!
Why rub your head against the earth?
What point in your vain prostration?
Your Kalimah read, makes others laugh.
You do not grasp the Lord’s word!
Somewhere the truth is written down:
It’s all contained in One!
Some go to the jungle in vain
And starve and cause themselves some pain;
They waste their time with all this
And come home tired, nothing gained!
Find your master and become God’s slave.
In this way you’ll be free of care;
Free of desire, free of worry,
And your heart truthful, pure.
Bulleh has discovered this truth alone:
It’s all contained in One!
