Guru Nanak Quote

Selfless Being's picture



O mind, what are you searching?
Inside and outside it is one only.
It is the concept that makes you
feel inside and outside.

Once the earthen pot bearing the
name Nanak is broken,
by getting rid of the concept
that I am the body,
where is inside and outside?
It is "I" only prevailing everywhere.

— Guru Nanak



how may we become one with it?

True is the Lord, True His Holy Word;
His love has been described as infinite.
Men pray to Him for gifts, which He grants untiringly.
When all is His;
What can we offer at His feet?
What can we say to win His love?
At the ambrosial hour of the early dawn,
Be you in communion with the Divine Word
And meditate on His Glory.
Our birth is the fruit of our actions;
But Salvation comes only from His Grace.
O Nanak, know the True One as immanent in all.

— Guru Nanak



By communion with the Word one can attain the status of TRUE SAINT

jasdir singh jaura's picture



By communion with the Word one can attain the status of
a Siddha,(1) a Pir,(2) a Sura,(3) or a Nath;(4)
By communion with the Word, one can understand the mysteries
of the earth, the supporting bull(5) and the heavens;
By communion with the Word, the earthly regions,
the heavenly plateaux and the nether worlds stand revealed;
By communion with the Word, we can escape unscathed
through the portals of Death;
O Nanak, His devotees live in perpetual ecstasy, for the Word washes away all sin and sorrow.

— Guru Nanak



One cannot attain union with God through ........

jasdir singh jaura's picture



If I may only please Him, 'tis pilgrimage enough;
If not, nothing-no rites or toils-avails;
Whichever way I look, I find that in His creation,
None has won salvation without His Grace-regardless of Karmas.(1)
You can discover untold Spiritual riches within yourself;
If you but abide by the teachings of your Master.(2)
My Master has taught me one lesson:
He is the Lord of everything, may I never forget Him.

— Guru Nanak



These do not necessarily win God's goodwill,

jasdir singh jaura's picture



If one could extend one's life to four ages,(1) nay make it ten times longer;If one were known throughout the nine planes of creation;And everyone therein followed him in respect; If every creature praised him to the sky:All this and more has no value if God's eye looked not kindly upon him:Without His goodwill, he will be reckoned as the meanest worm amongst worms; And sinners shall charge him with sins. O Nanak, He bestows virtues on those who have none, and adds to the store of the virtuous.But there is naught that can bestow aught upon Him

— Guru Nanak
