Chapter – 108- Sur -Vinaya – Pathrika – The difficult days are yet to come, hence practice the worship of Lord Sri Hari!
Sri Surdas Maharaj speaks “Oh! Prabho, I have wasted my entire life falling prey to diversified matters of worldly existence, the major part of the human body is made up of water and it is more delicate than paper, then how did the Prana/vital air protect the body? Oh! Prabho, this body is undergoing constant transformation, it is bound by time, and it is definite that one day it will be out of use, I am an unfortunate Jeeva, I did not put the rarest birth as human for austerities, Japa, Thapa, Yajja, Dhanam, Dhaya, Sathyam, Shamam, Dhamam, Astheyam, ARjjavam, Bhramacharya, Satsang, Thaththvavichara, Bhramamjjyanam, Swadhyaya, etc. Oh! Prabho, I have downtrodden the rarest birth as a human by utilizing it for material and physical pleasures, the tongue always sought after for various tastes, the ears were interested in gossips, the hands and legs were moving in the unwanted areas, the eyes were taken great pleasure in infinite and diversified matters of the Universe, in this way, I have wasted most of my life. Alas! I did not experience permanent bliss from the above deeds. Oh! Ignorant mortals, listen to me carefully, there is no way to get rid of three kinds of grief and the fear of repeated births, other than sing in praise of Lord Sharangapani/Lord Sri Hari, the difficult days are yet to come, at the death bed no one will protect you from the dreadful emissaries of Lord of death/Yama, hence, leave your attachment in worldly matters of fleeting nature, and contemplate upon Lord Sri Hari.”
Bicharath Hi Lage Dhin Jan | Sajala Dheha Kagadh Thau Komala Kihi Bidhi Rakhau Pran? Joga Na Jagya Dhyana Nahi Seva Sathsanga Nahi Jjan| Jihwa Swadh Indhriyani Karan Ayu Ghatathi Dhin Man || Aur Upayi Nahi Re Baure Suni Thu Yaha Dhai Kan | Surdas Ab Hoth Bigoochani Bhaji Lai Sarangapana||
