Parh parh ilm hazaar kitaaban - Baba Bhuley Shah

paRh paRh ilm hazaar kitaabaN 
qaddi apnay aap nou paRhiya naee
jaaN jaaN waRhday mandir maseedi
qaddi mann apnay wich waRhiya naee
aa-vaiN laRda aye shaitan de naal bandeaa
qaddi nafss apnay naal laRiya naee

English Translation: 

you have read thousands of books
but you have never tried to read your own self
you rush into  Mandirs and Mosques/Masaajid
but you have never tried to enter your own heart
futile are all your battles with Satan
for you have never tried to fight your own desires

[Baba Bhuley Shah]
