"Put on the dress of these virtues and you will win over the Lord".

jasdir singh jaura's picture



What is that word, what the virtue and what is that jewel-like spell ?
What is the dress, which I may wear, by which I may captivate my spouse ?
Humility is the word, forgiveness the virtue and sweetness of tongue, the jewel-like spell.
Wear thou these dresses,
O my sister, then alone shall thy spouse come into thy power. (Farid Salok 1384-14).
