O seeker of salvation

O seeker of salvation,
Come and go as you like
perform yours activities
For the good of others.

O seeker of salvation,
Subsides your ego
Practise discipline
And get rid of attachment.

O seeker of salvation
Come to practical life
Do not always go with books
Books will lead you to hell.

    The seeker of salvation should rid of ego, work for the good of others, and should lead a detached, disciplined life. There is clear exposition of ideas. A layman can understand the ways of attaining salvation. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
