69. Guru's Bani
Without the support of the One Name, Consider all religious ceremonies
superstitions. "Karta (The Creator) and Karim (The beneficient) are the
names of the same God.
Razak (The provider) and Rahim (The merciful) are also the names given to Him.
Let no man in his error wrangle over differences in names.
Worship the One God who is the Lord of all. Know that his form is one and He is the One light diffused in all."
"The Khalsa is my own image.
I shall always manifest myself in the Khalsa.
The Khalsa is my body and soul;
The Khalsa is the life of my life.
The Khalsa is my perfect leader.
The Khalsa is my brave friend.
I say nothing untrue and to this;
Guru Nanak, united with God, is my witness."
"Why impress false religion on the world ?
It will be of no service to it.
Why run about for the sake of wealth ?
You cannot escape from death.
Son, Wife, friends, disciples, companions none of those will bear witness for thee.
Think, O think, you thoughtless fool, you shall have in the end to depart alone."
