Under ordinary circumstances and through different ages through civilizations,
All mankind is usually asleep
Living in a desolate world;
The popular desire among men to transcend this
Is mere habit and custom in all societies in the world,
Not religion – idle fairy tales.
The men and women of clear vision,
Usually make conscious effort to stop bragging in the presence
Of men of the true path:
Better it is to consume oneself
Like burning chaff.
If one, himself
Is upside-down in reality,
Then their wisdom and faith
Are also bound to be topsy-turvy.
Therefore, one should stop weaving a net about themselves;
And burst like a lion from the cage!
