Gems for
Life from Guru Nanak
Kiv Sachiara hoyeeay,Kiv koore tutte
paal?
How can one become one with the Truth? A wall
of untruth and illusion separates us from God. The reunion with God is not
possible until this wall is demolished and we become true to the Creator. The
method of God Realization is to obey and recognize God’s Supreme Ordinance
(Hukam) in this life. – Guru Nanak, Page 1
The invaluable jewel (God) in whose search we
go to holy places and banks of the holy streams lies in our heart. – Guru Nanak,
page 152
Through the Guru’s teaching s, one can realize
that God is in the soul and the soul is in the Lord. – Guru Nanak, Page
1153
True Lord is pervading all and can be
recognized and seen through the Shabad. – Guru Nanak, page 1284
Inner Search
Spiritual Wisdom comes from inner search and it
diminishes with arguments and competition – Guru Nanak, Maalar Raag, GGS
When you taste the ultimate nectar of God’s
love and God’s presence in your heart, all vice and negativity becomes dust in
your life. – Guru Nanak, GGS
Those who guard their mind (against negative
thoughts and stay focused in God), become angels. They become manifestation of
love and affection and God keeps account of their goodness. – Guru Nanak Vaar
Maaru, GGS, p1090
The only way to God is to be conscious of God’s
presence within and developing innocence in your own life. Burning yourself with
jealously and worrying brings extreme sadness. It affects one’s thoughts, words,
and deeds. – Guru Nanak Vaar Maaru,GGS p 1091
When I become Yours O Lord, I see the whole
world I see as mine.
When ego departs in me, You Manifest and I see
everything connected with You. – Guru Nanak, Vaar Sarang, GGS
God is within
And if the Lord resides within,
It is a folly to look for Him without. Guru
Nanak, GGS, p 722
O my self, love God as fish loves water. – Guru
Nanak Sri Raag Astpadia, GGS.
Love and Humility
He is attained not by cleverness, learning and
feats of intellect;
Through love, humility and devotion may He be
attained -Guru Nanak, p436
True Hero and Warrior
Those who conquer their self( controlling the
senses), conquer the world -Guru Nanak, GGS
Justice
Good and bad deeds shall be narrated before the
God of justice
Some will be brought in closer to God
Others pushed away accounting for their
actions.
Those who have prayed, toiled
appropriately
Will leave with radiant faces
Many more will be emancipated with them, says
Nanak. GGS, p 8
Service for others
If you serve others in your life, you get the
honor of respect at God’s Abode – Guru Nanak, Sri Raag, GGS
Acts of kindness and inner enthusiasm to serve
others results in minds’ immersion in God, – Guru Nanak – Page 224
The person who earns by the sweat of his brow
and gives something in charity knows the way (to meet God). Guru Nanak, Page
1245
Forgiveness
Beloved God embraces the one who wears the
ornament of forgiveness. Guru Nanak, GGS, p 359
Nurture truth, caring mind, contentment, and
forgiveness while seeking the shelter of God
Guru Nanak, GGS p1030
Life Style
It is useless to ask for happiness all the
time,
Because happiness and sadness is outer wears of
each person’s life. – Guru Nanak, Vaar Manjh, GGS
Digging deep foundations, the walls are
constructed, but in the end, the buildings return to heaps of dust.
People
gather and hoard their possessions, and give nothing to anyone else –
the poor fools think that everything is
theirs.
Riches do not remain with anyone – not even the golden palaces of
Sri Lanka.
Listen, you foolish and ignorant mind
– only
His Will prevails. – Guru Nanak, Gauri Chetee, GGS
Those with worldly wealth are really poor(if
they do not remember God);
Those who have God in their heart, are rich
with all nobel qualities. Guru Nanak, GGS p,1287
Worthless is the life that is led
Only to eat and swell the belly Guru Nanak, GGS
p.790

Do we need Sindh in India?

There are two opposite views on Sindh, India. A lot of hindu sindhis feel there should be Sindh, India. Their feelings are based on the fear that the Sindhi culture  and language will disappear if there is no Sindh, India. Also, they feel that the hindu sindhis will be able to identify themselves and feel motivated to contribute to Sindh, India. Exactly, opposite feeling prevails amongst others…who feel  that even if Indian government carves out a Sindh state surrounding Gandhidam and Kandla, very few sindhis will move there as sindhis are well settled all over the world. Lets have your opinion.
