Ch 02 The Morals Of Dervishes Story 33

A padshah asked a hermit: `How spendest thou thy precious time?? He replied: `I am all night engaged in prayer, during the morning in supplications and the rest of the day in restricting my expenses.? Then the king ordered a sufficient allowance to be allotted to him so as to relieve him of the cares of his family.

 O thou who art encumbered with a family, 
 Think no more of ever enjoying freedom. 
 Cares for children, raiment and food 
 Restrain thee from the heavenly kingdom. 
 Every day I renew my determination 
 To wait upon God until the night. 
 In the night, while tying the knot of prayer, 
 I think what my children will eat on the morrow.
