    Default Sheikhul Aalam Sheikh Noorudin Noorani Rh.A- A Great Saint of Kashmir..Died 842Hijri

    The saint's attack on hypocrisy is interesting says he:

    "By bowing down, thou shalt not become a Rishi; the pounder in the rice- mill did not ever raise up its head."

    "By entering a cave, God cannot be attained: the mongoose and the rat seldom come out of their holes".

    "By bathing, the mind will not be cleansed: The fish and the otter never ascend the bank."

    "If God was just pleased by fasting, the indigent rarely cook food in pots."




    Translation :

    No sooner did I proclaim the unity of God
    Than I surrendered myself to His Jurisdiction
    Diffused My-Being in His Omnipresence
    Reflective remained I to His Omnipotence




    Translation :

    None is exalted- but Thee My Lord!
    Had I the knack, obedient I would have been!
    And had I knew the nothingness of this world.
    Vainly- would not have been lured upon !




    Translation :

    To me, none but thou art the only hope !
    One day, the vigour wilt vanish and the compound metal shalt perish.
    One whom Thou shalt grant, none can deprive.
    Immaterial, the time and occasion art !

    Some Poems By Hazrat Sheikhul Aalam Sheikh Noor-ud-din Wali Rh.A

    "By bowing down, thou shalt not become a Rishi; the pounder in the rice-
    mill did not ever raise up its head."
    "By entering a cave, God cannot be attained: the mongoose and the rat
    seldom come out of their holes".
    "By bathing, the mind will not be cleansed: The fish and the otter never

    A Blonde I, Dressed and Combed

    A blonde I, dressed and combed,
    Became a queen of beauty:
    Bewitched my youth was by flowers.
    Frozen as snows on mountains
    I was and
    Blown off by WULAR wind; (biggest lake in Kashmir)
    Divested by robbers, I was
    In dazzling bewilderment:
    Ruffled my half-cooked rice became
    By bran and husk
    While a poor man's day
    Passed for a year.




    Aradana

    a) That Lana of Padmanpora
    Gulp by gulp who nectar drank,
    And saw Shiva face to face everywhere
    Grant me that boon, O Deva!
    b) The speaking damsels of Loka—Bhawan
    And the dumb socio—human ones,
    Took flight with birds;
    Grant me that boon, O Deva !
    c) Janak Reshi of Dandakvan.
    Living on herbs, wild fruit, was
    A perfect Bhakta, a pearl among devotees !
    Grant me that boon, O. Deva.
    d) That Miran Reshi of Reshivan,
    Who fed a thousand people
    And created an averse free atmosphere:
    Grant me that boon, O Deva:
    e) A shephered followed rams.
    That very moment
    He was beckoned off
    And flew to the Heaven
    At Harmukh:
    Grant me that boon, O Deva:
    f) You blessed the sadhu at Ishabar,
    He recognised you and served you.
    Blessed you, also Rugzal?`
    The pashmina—seller:
    Grant me that boon, O Deva I
    g) That wise, hunch-backed, Kubza.
    h) You blessed Sadhwani, the vapbodh,
    He drank the milk of intimacy I
    In full,
    You blessed Shethi Srikantha,
    The sidha;
    Grant me that boom, O Deva !
    i) In time should I act for my future;
    Maybe, it may bear fruit ;
    Meekly'ld I exhort Him;
    Maybe, He may bless Nund too !
    Grant me that boon, O Deva !




    Avariciously, I Filled My Belly

    Avariciously, I filled my belly
    ---draped the devilish frame

    The vice !

    O Self, Lend Ear To

    O self, lend ear to
    The gossip that's going on;
    This's the knell of
    The warrants of death !

    Straight l'ld go,

    What Catch Will a Crow

    What a salvation will Shiva give
    To a---



    What Have I Gained After Birth?

    (a) With full settlement, I had come
    On business to the world;
    Lured on the way I was
    In the market place:
    Behold how I bore with
    The master mind:
    What have I gained after I was born ?
    (b) Why did I overhear my friend
    At HIS house?
    Who'll keep that laughing Joker
    In good humour ?
    Virtuous is my mind but
    Plenty of sins have I gathered:
    What have I gained after birth ?
    (c) Spanned has the thread of
    My necklace of pearls:
    Consumed by fire
    Have been all my gains
    Reduced to dust or consigned to flames
    Has been all my wealth:
    What have I gained after birth?
    (d) My living body fell here in chaos,
    Good it is to sacrifice it for the times:
    Wouldn't it honour the Lord?
    What have I gained in life ?
    (e) Originally crooked Couldn't reach the source
    How I tried to uphold the dignity of
    My home:
    Keep in fear of HIM, O thee rider and pedestrian:
    What have I gained in life
    (f) Peddlers are on the move
    From city to city:
    Isn't it time for you
    To burn in the fire of hell?
    Kneeling low, Nund Reshi prays and
    Exhorts the Lord in all humility:
    What have I gained in Life ?



    Within The Cluster of Rills Was Lost

    Within the cluster of rills was lost,
    A sparkling spring;
    A saint was lost amongst
    A gang of thieves;
    Amidst a family of duds was lost,
    A learned Pandit Guru;
    A gorgeous swan was lost,
    Amidst a flock of crows !



    Yee Alone, O Deva, Are The Need

    Yee alone, O Deva, are the need
    Of the hour,
    To set the earth a-right in beauty ?
    Yee alone, the shadow of skeletons:
    Yee alone awaken
    Without the tolling of bells;
    What's virtue and what vice ?



    You Gave Sugar to Sugarcane

    You gave sugar to sugarcane,
    And honey to the honey bee
    You gave grapes to
    The winding vine:
    You gave the deer stag
    The forest green:
    Such are your godly gifts!



    You've to Bear Lightning and Thunder

    You've to
    Tornados
    You've to
    You've to
    You've to
    You've to
    bear lightning and thunder,
    and storms at mid-day;
    bear with lifting mountain weights,
    bear with your palm aflame,
    pass through a rolling mill,
    tolerate eating poison and fire!
