Quotes[edit]

Stanza[edit]

  • O God, you are the only confident of my days
    You are inside, outside, you are settled in my pores
    You the warp, the weft, my each and everything is you
    Say Hussain, the worthless fakir, I am nothing, You are all.
    • Verses of a lowly Fakir Madho Lal Hussain, 2016, p. 3.

Stanza[edit]

  • O Mother ! To whom can I tell, this state of separation-pain
    Fires of Faqeer smoulder, wherever I rummage ruby-red gain,
    Thorns pierces, make me mad, separation my mind's refrain
    O Mother ! To whom can I tell, this state of separation-pain.
