Bulleh shah’s Sufi poem

"Haji lok makke nu jaande, Asan jaana takht hazaare."

(Pilgrims go towards Mecca to pray, but I (Heer - Ranjha’s lover), want to go to Takht Hazara -the birthplace of my beloved (Ranjha), for pilgrimage.

Munh Aayi baat na rehndi e (I must utter what comes to my lips) by Bulleh ShahInk, Chinese Ink on Paper.

Made some mistakes in the order of the sentences :/, but like the overall composition.

Lyrics and translation (By Kartar Singh Duggal) taken from SufiPoetry

Jhooth aakhaan te kuch bachda e,

Sach aakheyaan bhambad machda e,

Speaking the truth creates chaos.
Telling a lie saves one scarce.

Ik lazam baat adab di e,

Sanu baat malumi sab di e,

It is a matter of good form
A norm to which we all conform

Har Har vich soorat rab di e,

Kitey zahar e , kitey chupendi e

It’s God in every soul you see
If he is in me why not in you?

Charka (Spinning Wheel) - By Bulleh Shah(Sufi Poet)…Sung by Wadali Brothers.

Doing this calmed me down after a particularly troubling day at work…feel much better now :)!
