Spirituality over religion is so prevalent in our South Asian culture

I have probably butchered this song, but I need help translating it from Punjabi to English, so feel free to contact us at info@sawntv.com. Thank you.

Spirituality over religion is so prevalent in our South Asian culture especially in Pakistani Sufi kalam. Humanity above all else Punjabi blunt yet direct expression represents that so eloquently.

If you found God by cleansing yourself, frogs and fish would have found God.

If you could have found God by wandering in the forests, then cows and their babies would have found God.

Only God can be found by good people.

Don’t spin too much your beads of prayers Bahoo

Why read these beads

The person who does not examine themselves

Why judge them

God does not get upset with those who know how to make up with loved ones

There is no need for God’s place, if you have your absolution by seeing your loved ones

By one .(period) an entire matter is over

You read so many books, did you ever read yourself
You run to mosques and mandir, did you ever enter your consciousness
You fight with Satan, have you ever tried to find with your own consciousness
You look for the one in the sky, but the one in your heart you don’t catch

You can bring down a moque or mandir, but never break anyones heart

Because God lives in  hearts

You have become lover of God
People call you an unbeliever, just agree with them

Some people became as priests but….

If your enemy dies, don’t become happy
Your friends are going to die too

Wake up and go see the world
If you meet someone who is forgiven, you will be have your redemption

Does ever truth stay hidden
Does ever truth can be stopped

I Want My Sanctity Back

I Want My Sanctity Back

I Want My Sanctity Back
A strange bitterness is coming over me
Again and again
Over and over
And doesn’t let me stay calm!
There is lack of trust
In my soul
Let me tell the truth
Whoever left me
Under the burning sun
Without any shadow!
Can anyone secure me?
Without any fear,
In seasons of sun and cold
With a sanctity and respect!
Or the search won’t ever end,
In deserts, forests
Waters and spaces
Or in crowds of people
Forever!
Let me finish this
Leave me to fly
With my whole power,
Wherever my heart takes me
My tears want to rush outside
The prison.
Just for a few moments,
I want to sleep like the tired child
Who has slept after crying so much?
On our shoulder
With an innocent expression
of satisfaction!
-I Want My Sanctity Back written by A South Asian Woman
