“Hari kripaa tab jaaniye,
de maanav avtaar Guru kripaa tab jaaniye,
By the grace of God, one is born as a human being; It is only through the grace of the Guru that one can be freed from the cycle of rebirths.
We are fortunate to be born in the highest form of life. Our past actions have culminated into our coming to the gateway to freedom. We are just one step away from home. If we do not surrender ourselves to the Guru who is the only medium to get there, we will be wasting our opportunity and going back to a chain of transmigration. The grace of God has led us up to here; now we need the Guru’s grace to be liberated. We know that this world is not our eternal abode, we know that this world is full of sufferings, we know that life in any other form will not give us the same access to liberation. Then why wait? Let us surrender ourselves to our Guru.
