Discipline is the Workshop

Guru Nanak


Discipline is the workshop;
patience, the goldsmith;
the anvil, one's thinking;
wisdom, the hammer;
Fear, the bellows;
austerities, the fire;
and feeling, the vessel
where the deathless liquid is poured.
In such a true mint
is forged the Word,
and those on whom He looks
do their rightful deeds.
Nanak says:
the One who sees,
He observes.
