Thou hast acquired this human frame,
This is thy opportunity to be one with God;
All other labours are unprofitable.
Seek the company of the holy and glorify His Name.
Strenuously prepare to cross this terrible ocean.
Thy life is being wasted
In love of the world’s illusions.
From Sodar-Rehiras ~ an evening prayer
(This section of which is attributed to Guru Arjan)
