NAFS – Soul, spirit, self

ਪੜ੍ਹ ਪੜ੍ਹ ਇਲਮ ਹਜ਼ਾਰ ਕਿਤਾਬਾਂ
ਕਦੀ ਅਪਣੇ ਆਪ ਨੂੰ ਪੜ੍ਹਿਆ ਨਹੀਂ
ਜਾ ਜਾ ਵੜ ਦੇ ਮੰਦਰ ਮਸਜਿਦ
ਕਦੀ ਮਨ ਅਪਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਵੜਿਆ ਨਹੀਂ
ਐਵੇਂ ਲੜਦਾ ਸ਼ੈਤਾਨ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਬੰਦਿਆ
ਕਦੀ ਨਫ਼ਸ ਅਪਣੇ ਨਾਲ ਲੜਿਆ ਨਹੀਂ – Baba Bulleh shah

Yes, Yes, You Have Read Thousands Of Books,
But You Have Never Tried To Read Your Own Self,
You Rush In, Into Your Temples, Into Your Mosques,
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.
