Constant Intuition And Supreme Desire
Poem By Genova Maaa my mother
The object of the mystic's final quest
and of his constant intuition
is an object of wild adoration
and supreme desire.
Jalau 'din (Jalaluddin Firuz Khalji) said:
'With Thee a prison would be a rose garden,
oh thou ravisher of hearts.
With Thee hell would be a paradise,
oh thou cheer of souls' (From the Mesnevi,
quoted in the Appendix to 'The Flowers or Rose Garden of Sadi') .
