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)
“I always give my best.
As a result, I always attract the best.”
