Fifth Master, Raag Todee, Ang. 715
My foolish heart is in the grip of pride. By the Will of my Creator, Maya, like a witch, has swallowed my soul. || Pause || More and more, one continually yearns for more; but unless one is destined to receive, how can one obtain it? One is entangled in wealth, bestowed by the Creator; the unfortunate one attaches oneself to the fire of desires. || 1 || Listen, O mind, to the Teachings of the Holy Saints, and all your sins shall be totally washed away. One who is destined to receive from the Creator, O servant Nanak, shall not be cast into the womb of reincarnation again. || 2 || 2 || 19 ||
In today’s Hukam I feel Guru is asking me to cast aside my veil of illusion and seek the Truth. Your foolish mind is entangled in egotistical pride. This illusion has also been created by the Great Giver. However, you have fallen in love with the gifts and have forgotten the Giver. Reflect on what you are doing. You have attached yourself to the gifts; instead of attaching yourself to the Giver. This false illusion will devour and destroy you.
Guru’s Grace: A way to escape these fires of desire. Listen to the wisdom of the awakened beings. Follow the Teachings. Your transgressions will be obliterated. You will be led from darkness to light. Your cycle of reincarnation will end.
