Beautiful Quotes by Guru Nanak Dev Ji
Here are some lovely quotes by Guru Nanak Ji, that you can share with your loved ones to mark this auspicious day.
- “If there is one God, then there is only His way to attain Him, not another. One must follow that way and reject the other. Worship not him who is born only to die, but Him who is eternal and is contained in the whole universe.”
- “Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.”
- “Burn worldly love, rub the ashes and make ink of it, make the heart the pen, the intellect the writer, write that which has no end or limit.”
- “If the people use the wealth bestowed on them by God for themselves alone or for treasuring it, it is like a corpse. But if they decide to share it with others, it becomes sacred food.”
- “There is but One God. His name is Truth; He is the Creator. He fears none; he is without hate. He never dies; He is beyond the cycle of births and death. He is self-illuminated. He is realized by the kindness of the True Guru. He was True in the beginning; He was True when the ages commenced and has ever been True. He is also True now.”
- “Let no man in the world live in delusion. Without a Guru, none can cross over to the other shore.”
- “Owing to ignorance of the rope the rope appears to be a snake; owing to ignorance of the Self the transient state arises of the individualized, limited, phenomenal aspect of the Self.”
- “Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants.”
- “Only fools argue whether to eat meat or not. They don’t understand truth, nor do they meditate on it. Who can define what is meat and what is plant? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian?
- “Nanak, the whole world is in distress. He, who believes in the Name, becomes victorious.”
- “There are worlds and more worlds below them, and there are a hundred thousand skies over them. No one has been able to find the limits and boundaries of God. If there be any account of God, then alone the mortal can write the same; but God’s account does not finish, and the mortal himself dies while still writing.”
- “By singing the Guru’s hymns, I, the minstrel spread the Lord’s glory. Nanak, by praising the True Name, I have obtained the perfect Lord.”
- “That one plant should be sown and another be produced cannot happen; whatever seed is sown, a plant of that kind even comes forth.”
- “Let God’s grace be the mosque, and devotion the prayer mat. Let the Quran be the good conduct.”
- “Asceticism doesn’t lie in ascetic robes or in walking staff nor in the ashes. Asceticism doesn’t lie in the earring nor in the shaven head nor blowing a conch. Asceticism lies in remaining pure amidst impurities.”
- “Whatever kind of seed is sown in a field, prepared in due season, a plant of that same kind, marked with the peculiar qualities of the seed, springs up in it.”
- “Through shallow intellect, the mind becomes shallow, and one eats the fly, along with the sweets.”
- “Offspring, the due performance on religious rites, faithful service, highest conjugal happiness and heavenly bliss for the ancestors and oneself, depend on one’s wife alone.”
- “He who regards all men as equals is religious.”
- “Whatever be the qualities of the man with whom a woman is united according to the law, such qualities even she assumes, like a river, united with the ocean.”
