Parable Lesson: The Alchemy of Transformation, from Copper to Gold

The following is a translation of a verse from the Ginan, Sab Ghat Sami Maaro Bharpur Betha Aaya, composed by Pir Sadr al-Din: 

O Brother,

The True Preceptor is like the philosopher’s stone and the followers are like copper.

When the copper comes in contact with the philosopher’s stone it becomes gold.

The followers gain spiritual enlightenment from the contact of the Imam.

He is the only Glorious, O brother.
