Value Of Your Soul?
by Rumi
 
   You know the value of every article of merchandise,
but if you don't know the value of your own soul,
it's all foolishness.
  You've come to know the fortunate and the inauspicious stars,
but you don't know whether you yourself
are fortunate or lucky.
  This, this is the essence of all sciences-
that you should know who you will be
when the Day of Reckoning arrives.



Qimat-e har kleh mi dni keh chist
qimat-e khvod-r na-dni ahmaqist
Sa`d-h va nahs-h dnesteh-'i
na-negari to sa`di y n-shosteh-'i
Jn-e jomleh-ye `elm-h inast in
keh be-dni man kiam dar Yawm-e Din

Mathnawi III: 2653-2654
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
