Grief should be the instructor of the wise.
Sorrow is knowledge:
they who know the most must mourn the deepest.
~ Lord Byron
Meditating, in contemplation of the great Giver, the heart’s desires are fulfilled.
The craving and hopes of the mind are realized, and sorrows are forgotten.
The treasure of the name is obtained after a long search.
My light merges with the Supreme light, and my labors are over.
Peacefully I take abode in the house of bliss.
My comings and goings have ended and there is no more birth or death.
The Master and the servant have become one, with no sense of separation.
By the Guru’s grace, Nanak is absorbed in the true Lord.
(Guru Arjun Dev, 5th Sikh Guru)
