Zitate Fariduddin Attar

zitiert in Julius Hart, Divan der persischen Poesie, S. 119, Verlag O. Hendel 1887,

„Joy! Joy! No mortal thought can fathom me.“

—  Attar of Nishapur

"The Triumph of the Soul" as translated by Margaret Smith in The Persian Mystics
Kontext: Joy! Joy! I triumph! Now no more I know
Myself as simply me. I burn with love
Unto myself, and bury me in love.
The centre is within me and its wonder
Lies as a circle everywhere about me.
Joy! Joy! No mortal thought can fathom me.

„What you most want,
what you travel around wishing to find,
lose yourself as lovers lose themselves,
and you'll be that.“

—  Attar of Nishapur

"Looking For Your Own Face" as translated by Coleman Barks in The Hand of Poetry: Five Mystic Poets of Persia
Kontext: Don't be dead or asleep or awake.
Don't be anything.
What you most want,
what you travel around wishing to find,
lose yourself as lovers lose themselves,
and you'll be that.

„Come you lost Atoms to your Centre draw,
And be the Eternal Mirror that you saw“

—  Attar of Nishapur, buch The Conference of the Birds

The Conference of the Birds (1177)
Kontext: Come you lost Atoms to your Centre draw,
And be the Eternal Mirror that you saw:
Rays that have wander'd into Darkness wide
Return and back into your Sun subside.

„Since I have neither sign nor name
I shall speak only of things unnamed and without sign.“

—  Attar of Nishapur

As quoted in Music of a Distant Drum: Classical Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew Poems (2001) by Bernard Lewis, p. 119
Kontext: I shall grasp the soul's skirt with my hand
and stamp on the world's head with my foot.
I shall trample Matter and Space with my horse,
beyond all Being I shall utter a great shout,
and in that moment when I shall be alone with Him,
I shall whisper secrets to all mankind.
Since I have neither sign nor name
I shall speak only of things unnamed and without sign.

„Thou all Creation art, all we behold, but Thou“

—  Attar of Nishapur

"All Pervading Consciousness"
Kontext: Thou all Creation art, all we behold, but Thou,
The soul within the body lies concealed,
And Thou dost hide Thyself within the soul,
O soul in soul! Myst'ry in myst'ry hid!
Before all wert Thou, and are more than all!

„Yet what are seas and what is air? For all
Is God, and but a talisman are heaven and earth
To veil Divinity.“

—  Attar of Nishapur

"All Pervading Consciousness"
Kontext: Yet what are seas and what is air? For all
Is God, and but a talisman are heaven and earth
To veil Divinity. For heaven and earth,
Did He not permeate them, were but names;
Know then, that both this visible world and that
Which unseen is, alike are God Himself,
Naught is, save God: and all that is, is God.

„From each a mystic silence Love demands.“

—  Attar of Nishapur

"Intoxicated by the Wine of Love" as translated by Margaret Smith from "The Jawhar Al-Dhat"
Variant translation:
From each, Love demands a mystic silence.
As translated in Essential Sufism, by James Fadiman and Robert Frager
Kontext: From each a mystic silence Love demands.
What do all seek so earnestly? 'Tis Love.
What do they whisper to each other? Love.
Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts.
In Love no longer "thou" and "I" exist,
For Self has passed away in the Beloved.

„Joy! Joy! I triumph! Now no more I know
Myself as simply me.“
