Today is the Sikh holiday of Vaisakhi. It is also the day Hindus celebrate the beginning of the solar new year.
“True Bliss is experienced when ego is non-existent. True Bliss fills the void created by the exit of ego, of total surrender of ego at the lotus feet of the Lord. With ego surrendered, there is no more seeking, all desires disappear, the Sweet Will and Bliss of the Lord takes over.” ~ Guru Granth Sahib
The Lord is the Truth Absolute,
True is His Name.
His language is love infinite;
His creatures ever cry to Him;
‘Give us more, O Lord, give more’;
The Bounteous One gives unwearyingly.
What then should we offer
That we might see His Kingdom?
With what language
Might we His love attain?
In the ambrosial hours of fragrant dawn
Think upon and glorify
His Name and greatness.
Our own past actions
Have put this garment on us,
But salvation comes only through His Grace.
O Nanak, this alone need we know,
That God, being Truth, is the one Light of all.
(Guru Nanak, 1st Sikh Guru)
