The abstemious and the greedy cannot go together.
[O True-Seeker] Be informed that through the Riyazat endowed with Mushahida, is achieved the Marifat of the Hazoor of Haq and by virtue of the Riyazat not endowed with Mushahida, the human being is barred from getting the Marifat of God and Sirr of Lord. Through the Secret of Tauheed are revealed the Secrets and (he) then enters the Tauheed after coming in the true Haqeeqat, (he) takes Mushahida Ain-Ba-Ain!
REALITY OF RIYAZAT
[O Real-Seeker] Be enlightened that Riyazat is Inwardly Secret. The Fire of the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) burns the bones, marrow, flesh, hide, veins, soul, blood, and fats etcetera from the head to feet in such a way as the fire to dry wood! Because of this Riyazat no one can see through the physical eyes by the means of the Riyazat of Wujoodia. This fire is extremely intense and is not better. It is as if one spark of this Fire has been given to seven of the People of Hell! That is, of the Fire of the Riyazat of the Wujoodia Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) a trifling fire has been received by the People of Hell. Undertaking this kind of Riyazat that is anonymous and Be Namoos (unprincipled) is the practice of the Mardaan of Lord. The Absolute Purity of the Inward is obtained through the Hazoori of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam.
The Riyazat of the Inwardly Secret, the Jihad against Nafs and nonstop coercion (Qehar) on it, the life, the whole Qalb, the comfort of Ruh and remaining Absorbed in the Fervor every day and night and the eternal Secret is received in Assalaat (Prayers).
IMPORTANCE OF THE EYE OF MARIFAT
The eye of Marifat finds the ability to see by the eye of heart. The parable of Nafs inside body is as if an unnamed and notorious thief is inside a hideout or a serpent is peacefully hibernating inside a pit. If the mouth of the pit is hit and beaten many times, even then, Nafs will not notice it inside the cave and the serpent will not note it inside the pit nor will it cause harm to it. [Same like this, unless no pain is received by the Nafs, until then the Outwardly pain and Riyazat remain ineffective for it.]
