Some Mystic Verses of Sant Daya Bai
My heart burns, O RAM [God], with the fire of separation; I yearn to behold you, O lovely enchanter of my heart.
I am perpetually tormented by the anguish of separation; O come to me on the waves of compassion and do not torture me.
The path of love is a very difficult one and the world cannot understand it. He alone can know its ups and downs who has himself experienced its pain.
Says Daya, repeat the Name of the Lord which alone is the True Essence in this world. By repeating the Lord's Name, you become the Lord Himself and come to know of the Supreme Secret.
--- Sant Daya Bai
O Lord, I am mad for Your love, but who can understand my pain? None but the wounded can know of the anguish of the wounded.
--- Sant Mira Bai
