    Even brave and mighty men cannot withstand the powerful and overwhelming army which the five passions have gathered.
    The ten organs of sensation attach even detached renunciates to sensory pleasures.
    They seek to conquer and overpower them, and so increase their following.
    The world of the three dispositions is under their influence; no one can stand against them.
    So tell me - how can the fort of doubt and the moat of Maya be overcome?
    Worshipping the Perfect Guru, this awesome force is subdued.
    I stand before Him, day and night, with my palms pressed together. ||15||

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
