SIKH MESSAGE ON THANKS GIVING : 23 November 2011

The great giver gives and keeps giving.

It is for us to stay steadfast in faith, cultivate contentment, learn to be thankful and practice thankfulness rather than relate to the world in give and take reciprocity.

Such a path will save us from drowning in the abyss of maya

From getting consumed by fiery desires

ਸਿਦਕ ਸਬੂਰੀ ਸਾਬਤਾ ਸਾਕਰੁ ਸੁਕਰਿ ਨ ਦੇਣਾ ਲਹਣਾ । ਨੀਰਿ ਨ ਡੁਬਣੁ ਅਗਿ ਨ ਦਹਣਾ

sidak sabooree saabataa saakar sukar n daynaa lahanaa – neer n duban agi n dahanaa  [Bhai Gurdas Varaan, 18-22].

ਚਲਣੁ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਰਜਾਇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਣਿਆ — ਸਿਦਕੁ ਸਬੂਰੀ ਪਾਇ ਕਰਿ ਸੁਕਰਾਣਿਆ

chalan hukam rajaai gurmukh jaaniaa —  sidaku sabooree paai kari sukaraaniaa

Remember that Guru oriented devotees live by divine will,

Ever thankful they are blessed with contentment and true faith.

 [Bhai Gurdas Varaan, 22 – 16]
