“Aye Jan Feshan” by Behzad Khoshmashrab

May 17, 2016, in Music > Studio Session, by

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, Behzad Khoshmashrab chants “Aye Jan Feshan” based on a tablet by Abdu’l-Baha in Persian. In this tablet Abdu’l-Baha expands on the journey of the soul in search of the most Beloved, and among other points He highlights how the manner in which one goes about one’s search impacts the outcome of one’s quest.

This song was filmed and recorded in Melbourne, Australia on 5 May, 2016.

Lyrics & Quote

This Tablet has not been translated into English yet, but we have included the Persian script of the Tablet below:

ھوالابھی

ای جانفشان یار بی نشان ھزار عارفان در جستجوی او ولی محروم و محجور از روی او اما تو یافتی و

طرفه حکایتی است و غریب بشارتی آنانکه جستند نیافتند. آنانکه نشستند یافتند استغفرالله

.جستجویشان جستجوی سیراب بود نه تشنگان و طلبشان طلب عاقلان بود نه عاشقان

عاقلان خوشه چین از سر لیلی غافلند این کرامت نیست جز مجنون خرمن سوز را

.شناختی تو نرد خدمت باختی و کار خود ساختی وعلم فوز وصلاح افراختی

عاشق نشسته به از عاقل متحرک

والبھاءعلیک
