Prayer for Thursday (Guru Nanak Dev Sahib Birthday)

Guru Nanak was the founder of the Sikh religion.

God is One. His Name Is Truth. Creative Being,
without Fear, without Hatred. He never dies.
He is Beyond Birth, Self-Existent.
By The Guru’s Grace The Truth is Obtained.

God was True in the beginning.
He was True in the Primal Age.
He is True now Also.
O Nanak, True Shall God be Forever.

(Mool Mantra, Jup 1:1-3, Guru Granth Sahib)

When You stand over our heads, O Lord and Master, how can we suffer in pain?
The mortal being does not know how to chant Your Name – he is intoxicated with the wine of Maya, and the thought of death does not even enter his mind.
O my Sovereign Lord, You belong to the Saints, and the Saints belong to You.
Your servant is not afraid of anything; the Messenger of Death cannot even approach him.
Those who are attuned to Your Love, O my Lord and Master, are released from the pains of birth and death.
No one can erase Your Blessings; the True Guru has given me this assurance.
Those who meditate on the Naam, the Name of the Lord, obtain the fruits of peace. Twenty-four hours a day, they worship and adore You.
In Your Sanctuary, with Your Support, they subdue the five villains.
I know nothing about wisdom, meditation and good deeds; I know nothing about Your excellence.
Guru Nanak is the greatest of all; He saved my honor in this Dark Age of Kali Yuga.

(an Amrit Kirtan from Raag Soohee, Guru Granth Sahib)
