  • Some apply ceremonial marks to their foreheads, hold rosary beads in their hands, and wear religious robes. Some people think that the Lord is a toy to play with. If I am insane, then I am Yours, O Lord. How can people know my secret? I do not pick leaves as offerings and I do not worship idols. All services are useless without devotional worship of the Lord. I worship the true Guru; forever and ever, I surrender myself to Him. By such service, I find peace in the Kingdom of God. People say that Kabeer has gone insane. Only the Lord realizes the secret of Kabeer (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 1158).

  • The Ever-present Immortal Lord is One with His creation; He does not reside within the statue of Krishna, He resides everywhere. God is within yourself running like a river; you should bathe in it. Meditate on God forever. See through the glasses of meditation and you shall see Him everywhere (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 727).

  • God is within yourself and one does not realize him. He hangs a god of stone around his neck. The faithless cynic wanders around, deluded by doubt. He churns water (works) and dies after wasting his life. That stone, which he calls his god, the same stone pulls him down and drowns him. O sinner, you are untrue to your own self. A boat of stone will not carry you across. Meeting the Guru, O Nanak, I realized my Lord. He pervades water, land and sky (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 739).
