Meditations with Hafiz

Across time these words by Hafiz speak to me:

In the morning

When I began to wake,
It happened again—

That feeling
That You, Beloved,
Had stood over me all night
Keeping watch,

That feeling
That as soon as I began to stir

You put Your lips on my forehead
And lit a Holy Lamp
Inside my heart.

–Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

Sunday, April 15, 10:30AM, Meditations with Hafiz, First Parish in Malden, Universalist

Join me on Sunday, April 15th for a service filled with the poetry of the Persian mystic, Hafiz and opportunities for spiritual reflection.  Hafiz is the most beloved poet in Iran where his works outsell that of Rumi and even the Koran.  His zest for the sensual nature of existence and passion for the Beloved, as he calls the Divine, invites us into fuller living.  All are welcome!
