This poem is from page 168-169 of the book “Furmaan Khalsa: Poems to Live By” by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji:
There are thousands of Paths and thousands of Karmas.
There are thousands of Prophets and thousands of Dharmas.
I’ve searched thousands of places, and not found one person,
Who was tired of their Karmas and of not finding happiness.
Thousands have searched and never found God.
People of low caliber never tire of boasting.
They have never felt the Heartbeat of Life.
How can a clay puppet cut the strings of his ego?
Without thought or understanding, they claim to be Disciples.
Praising themselves, they claim to be Martyrs.
God sent a man, with the Dharma of a Gurmukh.
When the Inner Soul awakens, all doubts are washed away.
There are many prayers and ceremonies, and ways to worship God,
But these useless, worthless people, are never free from ego.
Humility is a tiny tender leaf,
A single drop of nectar,
Full of spontaneity!
Everyone is searching for the lord of deep compassion …
For the yogi of all yogis …
For Guru Nanak,
