    Man Overboard!

    Author - Unknown

    'Cherish the Lotus-feet of the Guru in your mind and your body will be free of all pain and grief. The True Guru saves the drowning creatures from the sea of (material) existence and unites those separated for countless births. Serve the Guru always and forever more, then you earn poise and bliss and your mind is calmed. By great, good fortune, one attains the dust of the Guru's Feet. Nanak is a sacrifice to the Guru.' (Suhi, M. 5 : Guru Granth Sahib Jee)

    The secret, silent ship sails the firey sea,
    Each and every moment it sails right past me.
    The Captain throws the lifejacket with a hearty shout
    But, I don't believe it's true so I drown in my doubt.

    Guru Nanak is the Captain of this ship,
    He always gives His feet for me to take a grip.
    But, I'm a bigheaded fool, chasing my desire
    For sex and loadsa'money, so I sink into the fire.

    I go to the Gurdwara and I do bow with respect,
    Yes, but you pray for more money and think about sex.
    If you really want to climb up aboard the ship's deck,
    Then throw off that weight from around your skinny neck.

    Place your forehead at your Guru's Lotus feet,
    Say 'Dear Nanak I accept total and utter defeat,
    Body, mind and wealth I dedicate all to you,
    Place your hand above my head and protect me Guru'.

    Bowing with your mind, hold the feet of your Guru,
    By singing with your heart : I love you Waheguru.
    Waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru
    And climb aboard the ship that has rescued you.

    Guru Nanak is the Captain of Waheguru's ship,
    Always hold His Lotus feet with an extra strong grip.
    For if you lose concentration with a new desire
    Then you'll be a man overboard back in the Ocean of fire.

    Each and every moment the Ship sails past you,
    You can climb aboard or you can worry as you do.

    Taken from here.

    Very nice views, I think if everybody start feeling the same way then earth will become very good place to live in & also salvation comes automatically if one frees oneself of all negetive viles.
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!
