to him means that he devotes himself exclusively to prayers; and,
shyness, to him, means that he does not cast his looks on anybody
else, except God, All-pervading.
- The last thing that the Enlightened does, is that, he disdains
wealth and splendour.
- The Enlightened is an enemy of the world, and a friend of God.
That is why he renounces the world, and is above the trifles of
- The Enlightened is one, who does not implore from anybody any
help except from God.

- There are such lovers of God, whom the love of God has made
them quiet, to an extent that, they do not know whether there
is anything else existing in the world.
- The one, whose heart is enamoured by the love of God, does not
look in any direction in both the worlds. And, if he does, he
forfeits his claim to be a true lover.
- He indeed, is the true lover of God, who renounces from his
heart the idea of both the worlds.

and sad, and not to think evil of anybody;
(iii) To point the way towards God, and to lead and guide the
people towards the Ultimate Good;
