New England Sikh Study Circle dedicates the following two hymns to the
victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The tragedy brought the impermanence
of our lives; something that we are aware of, but often ignore, into sharp
focus. The tremendous love, sacrifice and service that the community offered
to the victims is a testament to the fundamental goodness of humanity
and emphasizes the bonds that unite us all eternally.

Prabhaatee (Bhagat Kabeer):
First, God created Light; then, He made all mortal beings.
From that Light, the entire universe sprang forth. So how can we
possibly judge anyone? ||1||
O people, do not be deluded by doubt.
The Creation is in the Creator, and the Creator is in the Creation,
omnipresent and ubiquitous ||1||Pause||
The clay is the same, but God has fashioned it in various ways.
The pot of clay and the potter are both beyond reproach. ||2||
The One True Lord abides in all; by His actions, is everything created.
Whoever realizes His Divine Will, knows the One Lord and comes be
His slave. ||3||
The Lord is Unseen; The Guru has blessed me with this sweetness
Says Kabeer, my anxiety has ended; I see the Immaculate Lord everywhere.

Jaijaavantee, Ninth Guru:
Your life slips away, without meaning or purpose||
Every day, you listen to the holy texts, but you do not understand
them, you fool!
The moment of your Death is upon you; where will you run to now?
You foolishly thought your body was immortal, but for sure it shall
turn to dust||
Why won't you chant the Name of the Lord, you shameless fool? ||1||
Worship the Lord with all your heart, and abandon your intellectual
Says the humble Nanak, live thus, in this world. ||2||4||
