for what only appears in the roots” —
will be blown around in dust and dirt.
While you still have a chance, offer all you have here,
at this purifying flame, and be cleansed.
Garments torn, heart on fire,
let your whole being burn away in this love.” —Abu Sa`id ibn Abi al-Khayr (via thelittlephilosopher)
Please pray for the brothers and sisters affected by the atrocity at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. I am ashamed this happened in the place I called home for most of my life.
O Nanak, I am exhausted; I seek the shelter of Your Sanctuary; O God, please bless me with the gift of fearlessness.
- Guru Tegh Bahaadur Ji
