Rumi quatrain, #600 Foruzanfar

The dervish who grants spiritual wealth
Gives away a kingdom with each breath.
The dervish is not one who begs bread;
The dervish is the one who bestows life!

درویش که اسرار نهان میبخشد
هر دم ملکی برایگان میبخشد
درویش کسی نیست که به نان میطلبد
درویش کسی بود که جان میبخشد

Note: dervish means beggar.
Rumi’s master, Shams, was the
dervish without equal.
