38th, the Last Step.....DRAW SUSTENANCE from TRUTH & TRUE IDEAs

Step 4: RISE EARLY & PONDER OVER Wisdom....

i. e. Sikh's Life line, SatGurBani

  • Lord TRUTH is TRUE. His Justice is TRUE.His Language is Lovable beyond all boundries.
  • People endlessly beg and pray, "Give to us, give to us", and the great giver ‘TRUTH’ keeps honoring them.
* What return gifts can we reciprocate with to seek a glance of Thy Court?
 
* What words should we speak to evoke Thy favour & Love?
 
* CONTEMPLATE and PONDER Over Wisdom During ambrosial hours before dawn
  • Today’s condition of all Living beings and availability of Support for their Livelihood is a consequence of actions in the past.
  • 'True Key to TRUTH', is realised only through the grace of SatGurBani.
  • Let us understand that TRUTH alone is always true. We tend to deviate from flawlessly obeying THY Commandments.

Step 5: SERVE TRUE IDEAs

  • Lord TRUTH Himself is Immaculate and Pure & needs no washing / bathing / pampering. Such ritualistic Services are FALSE

TRUE Service to the Lord is Service to SatGur ( TRUE IDEAs )Those who Serve TRUE IDEAs by..

..Singing

* Sayth Nanak! Let us all sing Odes to the glory of the Lord ‘TRUTH’, who is the Treasure of Excellence.

..Listening

* Come On! Let us all! Every one of us! Sing and listen to Odes to Master ‘TRUTH’.

..& Grasping the Quintessence

  • Let us grasp & retain the Theme of TRUE IDEAs sung,( dedicated to no one but Lord TRUTH), deep in our hearts through: -
--Deep thinking,
--Analysis,
--Comprehension,
--Infinite love &
--Hard Work.

..stay in harmony with Thy commandments, earn honors.

  • This way let us all rid ourselves of the pain, & miseries and carry everlasting peace to our homes.

..........yogic Sound-current glorified as ‘Naad’ by yogis.

..........wisdom of ‘Vedas’

..........Master ‘TRUTH ‘ He/rself.

..........GOD

..........Master of Yoga Gorakh.

..........Vishnu and Brahma;

..........Paarvati and Lakhshmi

  • It is mind-boggling. Even if I had known all those & all that reside within TRUE IDEAs, I would not have been able to put across and describe in words.
  • To begin with TRUE IDEAs to TRUTH have given me just one understanding that There is only the One Master Giver of all souls i.e. TRUTH, May I never forget TRUTH!

Step 6: KNOW Your Own Self

  • My pilgrimage and holy bath is my being pleasing to Him. Without earning Thy approval, what good are ritualistic bathings at places of stated holy Pligrimages.
  • I gaze upon Humanity there is no other way to it. Without doing good deeds, one receives nothing.
  • If only one pays heed to to just this commandment of TRUTH god(..that Thou alone are Master of all beings i.e. TRUTH.) ,he stands approved as TRUE Sikh. in SACH KHAND.

In regional Punjabi "O Sikh.(noun)! ikk sikh ( verb)". Punjabi has a classical attribute of being brief, straight to the point & thus lends itself conveniently to complex poetic, psychological, sentimental & philosophical expressions. Same word can be repeatedly used as verb/noun/adjective etc. Nanak's writings are 'Unique Master Pieces on this.

  • SatGur has given me one understanding that there is only the One Master Giver of all souls i.e. Lord TRUTH. May I never forget LORD TRUTH.

Step 7: TOIL for No One's, but Thy Approval

  • Even if one...

.............could live throughout the four ages, or even ten times more,

.............was known throughout the nine continents and followed by all,

.............had a good name and reputation, with praise and fame throughout the world,

  • Still if Lord does not bless him, then who cares? What is the use? In such a case...

............one would be considered a lowly worm Among worms,

............even contemptible sinners would hold him in contempt.

  • THOU alone bless the unworthy with virtue, and bestow virtues on the virtuous.
  • No one else can even be imagined who could bestow any virtue upon unworthy.
