Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti 2019 Quotes: The birthday of Guru Nanak, the first of the ten Sikh gurus and the founder of Sikhism, is observed as ‘Guru Nanak Gurpurab’ across the globe. This year, it falls on November 12.
He is considered as one of the abled religious thinkers ever.
He travelled around to spread the message that there is only one God. He is accredited with setting up a distinctive social, political and spiritual platform based on virtue, equality, goodness and love. Guru Nanak’s thoughts, views and words have been catalogued in the form of 974 poetic hymns in ‘Guru Granth Sahib’, the holy text of Sikhism.
Here are some of his notable thoughts and words on the occasion of his birth anniversary.
*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.
*Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants.
*Alone let him constantly meditate in solitude on that which is salutary for his soul, for he who meditates in solitude attains supreme bliss.
*Even kings and emperors, with mountains of property and oceans of wealth – these are not even equal to an ant, who does not forget God.
*That one plant should be sown and another be produced cannot happen; whatever seed is sown, a plant of that kind even comes forth.
*He who regards all men as equals is religious.
*Thou has a thousand eyes and yet not one eye; Thou host a thousand forms and yet not one form.
*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.
