This scenic painting is based on Bhagat Kabir's line in Gurubani ਅਜਹੁ ਸੁ ਨਾਉ ਸਮੁੰਦ੍ਰ ਮਹਿ ਕਿਆ ਜਾਨਉ ਕਿਆ ਹੋਇ ॥ That life’s boat is still in the water and person is unaware what is going to happen in the coming times.
The artist has shown life as boat in the sea and rocks as hurdles. Strong currents of waves of water are making the movement of the boat a bit difficult. The people in the boat are worried about what will happen to them. Would they be able to reach the shore safely or not.
At a distance a light house is shown. A lighthouse here is symbolic of God’s name. God’s name is like a light from the light house showing directions to the people in trouble.
