Take Refuge in the Guru’s Feet
Be on your guard, O wayfarer -
robbers have come and set their trap for you.
Do not travel alone -
you won’t make it without a Master.
They will snatch away everything you’ve gathered
and turn you into their slave.
These thugs hold up everyone without exception
and rob all those who are without a Master.
Listen to me, dear friend,
Abandon their company and stay aloof.
Time and again I repeat this to you:
The Master is the only protector.
Love the Master and be steadfast in your love,
then you will doubtless reach your destination.
Taking refuge in the Guru’s feet
is the heart of the matter;
it will help you
to overcome your lust for sensual pleasures -
for these are the thugs that rob you on your journey.
Radha Soami is calling you:
Take refuge in me,
I offer you my protection,
Walk in the company of Nam and be liberated.
Soami Ji, Sar Bachan Poetry
