Remember Thy Guru

Like the Sun that shines, radiating bright light,
A guru disseminates thoughts lofty and nice.
Using his power, directness, and mystical might,
Pulls you out of every single and dangerous vice.
Get closer to your guru, feel the spiritual highs,
Elevations that could get you to the worlds beyond;
But if you utter untruths or say blatant lies,
A guru will not deride you, nor will he break the bond.

If your thoughts dovetail with his, it will be a worthy sight;
And if he makes you his mate, you shall create new ties.
Oh! Only he can raise you to what is called the spiritual site,
And tell you how to survive without maize, wheat, or rice!
Sages and seers in India have always had this piece of advice:
Revere your guru, pay heed to him, with him correspond;
But if you still have feelings that cause you to entice,
A guru will not deride you, nor will he break the bond.

Take refuge in your guru, do what is rightfully right;
And shun each object referred to as fool’s device.
Become calm, unnoticeable, omnipresent, and light,
Chewing over the fact that everyone, including you, dies.
Your guru will also ensure that you get rid of bad ties,
To your queries he will be more than elated to respond;
But if you still cast aspersions or willfully fail to arise,
A guru will not deride you, nor will he break the bond.

Ask your guru if a world exists over those vast blue skies.
You will soon be turned into a contented spiritual vagabond;
But if you still make it a point to distrust and criticise,
A guru will not deride you, nor will he break the bond.
