Are You Really “Woken?” (Sikh Traditions)

Sikh writings address many themes, including rejecting the world’s false attachments and waking up to our spiritual purpose.

“This world is sunk in doubts and vices, but the enlightened can swim across.
The one who is woken, the one who is given a sip of elixir, knows the story that cannot be told.
Make that transaction for which you came into this world, through the Guru, deposit the Divine in your mind.”
Guru Arjan from “The Hymn of Praise,” Sikh scripture
