In Memory of Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh

LS2G Love is the Answer to

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Monday, December 10th would have been the 88th birthday of Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh (12/10/1926 – 10/10/2008), the late and beloved Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order,  may God sanctify his secret. In his memory, this poem is dedicated.

Love is the answer
to every question

An ocean emerging
from a drop

This you taught us by your
every action, every word,

The revealed science
of the heart, the key

to the door of the spirit
that is never locked

To serve the One,
serve all, you said,

Eat but a little,
Feed the soul instead

As long as life
remains, and then

The drop returns
to the Ocean again,

Of Love, of Love, of Love
Ya Pir! Ya Hayy!

Ya Haqq!

    I have a tendency to be unloving but over the years I have learnt that there is someone who is pure love! That person is the Author of life.

    When we put our hope in Him our prayer to be more loving before God and man will be answered, for He is love and will bless us so that we become more loving!
    Praise God!
