“Are you ready to cut off your head and place your foot on it? If so, come; Love awaits you! Love is not grown in a garden, nor sold in the marketplace; whether you are a king or a servant, the price is your head, and nothing less. Yes, the cost of the elixir of love is your head! Do you hesitate? 0 miser, It is cheap at that price!”


Abu Hāmed Mohammad ibn Mohammad al-Ghazzālī (1058–1111)


cross compared with :

"Kabīr ja▫o ṯuhi sāḏẖ piramm kī sīs kāt kar go▫e.

Kabeer, if you desire to play the game of love with the Lord, then cut off your head, and make it into a ball."

Bhagat Kabir- Guru Granth Sahib

(1440–1518) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabir

Then Guru Nanak Dev (1469) ji says:

ਜਉ ਤਉ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਖੇਲਣ ਕਾ ਚਾਉ

जउ तउ प्रेम खेलण का चाउ ॥

Ja▫o ṯa▫o parem kẖelaṇ kā cẖā▫o.

If you desire to play this game of love with Me,

ਸਿਰੁ ਧਰਿ ਤਲੀ ਗਲੀ ਮੇਰੀ ਆਉ

सिरु धरि तली गली मेरी आउ ॥

Sir ḏẖar ṯalī galī merī ā▫o.

then step onto My Path with your head in hand.

ਇਤੁ ਮਾਰਗਿ ਪੈਰੁ ਧਰੀਜੈ

इतु मारगि पैरु धरीजै ॥

Iṯ mārag pair ḏẖarījai.

When you place your feet on this Path,

ਸਿਰੁ ਦੀਜੈ ਕਾਣਿ ਕੀਜੈ ॥੨੦॥

सिरु दीजै काणि न कीजै ॥२०॥

Sir ḏījai kāṇ na kījai. ||20||

give Me your head, and do not pay any attention to public opinion. ||20||

ਨਾਲਿ ਕਿਰਾੜਾ ਦੋਸਤੀ ਕੂੜੈ ਕੂੜੀ ਪਾਇ

नालि किराड़ा दोसती कूड़ै कूड़ी पाइ ॥

Nāl kirāṛā ḏosṯī kūrhai kūṛī pā▫e.

False is friendship with the false and greedy. False is its foundation.

ਮਰਣੁ ਜਾਪੈ ਮੂਲਿਆ ਆਵੈ ਕਿਤੈ ਥਾਇ ॥੨੧॥

मरणु न जापै मूलिआ आवै कितै थाइ ॥२१॥

Maraṇ na jāpai mūli▫ā āvai kiṯai thā▫e. ||21||

O Moollah, no one knows where death shall strike. ||21||

ਗਿਆਨ ਹੀਣੰ ਅਗਿਆਨ ਪੂਜਾ

गिआन हीणं अगिआन पूजा ॥

Gi▫ān hīṇaʼn agi▫ān pūjā.

Without spiritual wisdom, the people worship ignorance.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ang 1412 Guru Nanak Dev ji
