You have obtained the privilege of human birth, now is your only opportunity to meet God.

 You have obtained the privilege of human birth, now is your only opportunity to meet God. [1. GGS p. 12].:-

ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥

ਭਈ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਮਾਨੁਖ ਦੇਹੁਰੀਆ ॥ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਮਿਲਣ ਕੀ ਇਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਬਰੀਆ ॥

ਅਵਰਿ ਕਾਜ ਤੇਰੈ ਕਿਤੈ ਨ ਕਾਮ ॥ ਮਿਲੁ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਭਜੁ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ॥੧॥

ਸਰੰਜਾਮਿ ਲਾਗੁ ਭਵਜਲ ਤਰਨ ਕੈ ॥ ਜਨਮੁ ਬ੍ਰਿਥਾ ਜਾਤ ਰੰਗਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਕੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

ਜਪੁ ਤਪੁ ਸੰਜਮੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਨ ਕਮਾਇਆ ॥ ਸੇਵਾ ਸਾਧ ਨ ਜਾਨਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਇਆ ॥

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਮ ਨੀਚ ਕਰੰਮਾ ॥ ਸਰਣਿ ਪਰੇ ਕੀ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਸਰਮਾ ॥੨॥੪॥

 You have obtained the privilege of human birth, now is your only opportunity to meet God. [1. GGS p. 12].:-

AASAA, FIFTH MEHL:

This human body has been given to you.

This is your chance to meet the Lord of the Universe.

Nothing else will work. Join the Saadh Sangat ( company of God-Centred ), the Company of the Holy; imbibe on the Jewel of the Naam (attributes of God). || 1 ||

Make every effort to cross over this terrifying world-ocean.

You are squandering this life uselessly in the love of Maya (Lust, Ego, Attachment, Anger, Greed). || 1 || Pause ||

I have not practiced meditation, self-discipline, self-restraint or righteous living.

I have not served the Holy; I have not acknowledged the Lord, my King.

Says Nanak, my actions are contemptible!

O Lord! I seek Your Sanctuary; please, preserve my honor! || 2 || 4 ||
