Zitate Fariduddin Attar

„Falschheit ist ehrlos, und Lug wird von jedem verachtet.“

— Fariduddin Attar
zitiert in Julius Hart, Divan der persischen Poesie, S. 119, Verlag O. Hendel 1887, Google Books

„I shall grasp the soul's skirt with my hand
and stamp on the world's head with my foot.“

— Attar of Nishapur
Context: 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. As quoted in Music of a Distant Drum: Classical Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew Poems (2001) by Bernard Lewis, p. 119

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

— Attar of Nishapur
Context: 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. "The Triumph of the Soul" as translated by Margaret Smith in The Persian Mystics

„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
Context: 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. "Looking For Your Own Face" as translated by Coleman Barks in The Hand of Poetry: Five Mystic Poets of Persia

„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
Context: 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. "All Pervading Consciousness"

„From each a mystic silence Love demands.“

— Attar of Nishapur
Context: 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. "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

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

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

— Attar of Nishapur
Context: 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.

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

— Attar of Nishapur
Context: 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! "All Pervading Consciousness"

Will find the secret of them both, is Love.“

— Attar of Nishapur

You can never see your own face,
only a reflection, not the face itself.“
