10.5 Baba Farid

The crows have searched my skeleton,

and eaten all my flesh.

But please do not touch these eyes;

I hope to see my Lord. ||91||


Farid ji has refered to desires as a bird, ie: "You can meet the Lord today, O Shaykh Fareed, if you restrain your bird-like desires which keep your mind in turmoil. ||1||Pause||" And so the reference to a Raven or Crow in the above tuk (line of Bani) is a reference to desires of the mind.
