Love All and Hate None – Muinuddin Chishti

Ajmer continues to enchant me…these lines from the last discourse of Khwaja Mu’inuddin Chishti  manifest the poignancy of Sufi ways (tareeqat).

“Love all and hate none.
Mere talk of peace will avail you naught.
Mere talk of God and religion will not take you far.
Bring out all the latent powers of your being
and reveal the full magnificence of your immortal self.

Be overflowing with peace and joy,
and scatter them wherever you are
and wherever you go.

Be a blazing fire of truth,
be a beauteous blossom of love
and be a soothing balm of peace.

With your spiritual light,
dispel the darkness of ignorance;
dissolve the clouds of discord and war
and spread goodwill, peace, and harmony among the people.

This is your mission, to serve the people…..”
