Be a dervish and sit in solitude; do not ask for food from anyone.
Know that contentment is a kingdom, a mansion full of pearls and jewels.
Do not yourself go near the Sultan; know that the Sultan is such a one (that) When you long for the Sultan, there will be fear and danger for you.
Never seek kindness and generosity from kings;
When you take a village or land, you will fall down in front of a door.
Do not follow the King's employment, know that there is continuous misfortune in it; You will see little ease, more discomfort and punishment.
When someone else wears an official robe, You should not consider him trustworthy.
When you go into the Sultan's assembly, you must guard your tongue;
Do not say anything in front of him, and when you come out be as one who is deaf.
Do not go to Kings uncalled; but if they summon you, go instantly; Obey their commands; know that this category is obligatory.
If anyone is obedient in a just act which the King demands, Consider this better and more than sixty years of private worship. 💫 a fourteenth-century Chishti adept, Yusuf Gada.
