The Dust Beneath The Feet Of The Saints

Peace, one and all…


Know that one must grind and then drink seven times daily the dust beneath the feet of the saints (erenler) whose hallowed mouths convey the tidings of spiritual understanding.  This is because a spiritual heart is the heart of a saint.  He is a magnificent treasury of the Real and a vantage point (nazargah).  Spiritual knowledge keeps those hearts alive and the heart’s eyes open.  Those whom the Real deems unbefitting are granted no spiritual understanding in their hearts and they comfort no one.

Hazret Haji Bektash Veli, Makalat, Chapter 7
