Turbulent winds assailing ship

Sinking down in hollow dip

If control lost and rocks arise

Expect a vessel’s quick demise

Senses drawn away and caught

Filling voids the mind has brought

Tempted, attracted now attached

By desire is discernment snatched

Now angry frustrated unsatisfied

By happy promises soon denied

Building memories in the mind

Forgets true treasure left behind

If mind were ship, take control

Stay alert though ship may roll

Pleasantly direct straight course

Divine helmsman your resource

Neither attraction nor aversion be

That disturb mind’s tranquillity

(Bhagavad Gita Chapt 2 60 -65)


O Lord, turbulent are the senses and easily led am I. Yet thou art my Divine Helmsman that sends angels to make the crooked paths straight. Infuse my mind with faith and strength so that I may be always in control of your vessel and be an open channel for your grace to flow.
