The one who bows in humble reverence to the Primal Lord, the God of all beings. I am a sacrifice, a sacrifice to such a Guru; He Himself has attained salvation and he carries me across as well. Which of Your glorious virtues should I chant? There is no end or limitation to them. There are hundreds of thousands of millions of them,
but those who contemplate them are very rare. I am wonder-struck and amazed, dyed in the deep crimson color of my Beloved. Says Nanak, the saints savor this sublime essence, like the mute, who tastes the sweet candy, but only smiles (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1301).
He Himself is the true Guru; He Himself is the Lord. He Himself unites one with Him. As we follow the true Guru, He unites one with Himself with compassion. God Himself is the life of the world, O Nanak, He unites one with Himself like water mingled with water (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 41).
Life - I have found real life as a Gurmukh through His Love. The Lord's Name - He has given me the Lord's Name
and enshrined it within each breath of my life. By contemplating the Name of the Lord within each breath of my life,
all my doubts and sorrows have departed. Through the Guru's Word, I have meditated on the invisible and unapproachable Lord and obtained the pure and supreme status. The eternal melody resounds and the instruments play, singing the Bani of the true Guru. O Nanak, God the Great Provider has given me a gift; He has blended my light into His Light (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 442).
Mortal's fickle mind is entangled in a dream. Mortal does not even understand that someday he shall have to depart;
he has gone crazy with Maya. Mortal is engrossed in the delight of the flower's color (Maya); he strives only to indulge in corruption. Hearing about greed, he feels happy in his mind, and he runs after it. Wandering and roaming all around, I have endured great pain,
but now, I have come to the door of the holy. Granting His Grace, the Supreme Lord Master has blended Nanak with Himself (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 531).
