Prayer for Wednesday (Guru Birthdays)

Today is the Sikh celebration of the births of Guru Angad Dev and
Guru Tegh Bahadur.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Pleasing God
Is the only ritual I do.
Without inner experience
All rituals mean nothing.
How many created beings there are!
I see them spread all around me.
Without working hard,
How can anyone get anything?
If you hear just one of the Guru’s lessons
You will find the gems, jewels, and rubies in your mind.
The Guru has given me one understanding:
All souls are gifts of the One.
May I never forget Him.

(from Japji Sahib)
