The 5 Spiritual Senses

The five spiritual senses are all connected.
They've grown from one root.
As one grows strong,
the others strengthen, too:

each one becomes a cupbearer to the rest.
Seeing with the eye increases speech;
speech increases discernment in the eye.
As sight deepens, it awakens every sense,
so that the perception of the spiritual
becomes familiar to them all.

Panj hess bâ hamdegar payvasteh-'and
zânke in har panj ze asli rasteh-'and
Qut-e yek qut-e bâqi shavad
mâ baqi-râ har yeki sâqi shavad
Didan dideh fazâyad notq-râ
notq dar dideh fazâyad sedq-râ
Sedq bidâri-ye har hess mi-shavad
hess-hâ-râ zawq munes mi-shavad
