SHINE the SOILED SOUL WITH TRUTH
Step 20: LEARN THE SKILL to intutively sow well to Reap well
- Soiled hands, feet or body can be washed with water.
- Clothes soiled with filth or/and urine can be washed with soap.
- Similarly, if mind gets soiled with falsehood, it can be washed through only the essence of TRUTH God's Name.
- Worthless it is, to indulge in useless analysis of the terms 'Sins' or/and 'Virtues'.
- The essence of TRUTH GOD is that every one's account of TRUE / FALSE deeds earned by him through his lifetime is being accounted for by TRUTH God without any delay what so ever, on real time basis. Only this account will accompany a person after he departs this word.
- O Nanak! TRUTH God send down his IDOLs(TRUE/false)& calls them back.
Step 21: SHED FALSEHOOD & Useless Studies
- Pilgrimages, austere discipline, compassion and charity: these, by themselves, bring only an iota of merit.
- 'Listening to' and 'believing in' TRUE IDEAs with love and humility in your mind, cleanse yourself with the Name, at the sacred shrine deep within.
- All virtues are Yours, O TRUTH GOd!, I have none at all, Without virtues, there is no devotional worship.
- I bow to the Lord of the World, to His Word, to TRUTH the Creator .He is Beautiful, True and Eternally Joyful.
- What was that time, and what was that moment? What was that day, and what was that date?What was that season, and what was that month, when the Universe was created?
- The Pandits, the religious scholars, know nothing, even if it is written in the Puraanas.
- That time is neither known to the Qazis, who study K& swear by Koran.
The day and the date are not known to the yogis, nor is the month or the season. Only the Creator, who created this creation knows.
- How can we speak of the MASTER? How can we praise the LORD? How can we describe the LIMITLESS ? How can we know the extent of TRUTH GOD?
- O Nanak! everyone speaks of GOD, each one claims to be wiser than the rest.
- Great is the Master, Great is His Name, 'TRUTH'. Whatever happens is according to Thy Will.
- O Nanak! one who claims to know everything about TRUTH God, shall not be honoured hereafter.
Step 22: STAND BY RATIONALITY. Discard Myths & Ritualism
- Vedic scriptures unanimously say there are nether worlds beneath nether worlds, and hundreds of thousands of heavenly worlds above. Countless saints & learned scholars have gone weary & failed in their attempt to find the limits of Lord TRUTH's Creations
- All four Islamic & Christian scriptures state that there are 18,000 worlds controlled by Lord TRUTH.
- But the TRUTH is that numeric counts in no way can describe the non existent limits of Thy endless sprawling. Such an account just can not be written.
- Even if some stupid does make an attempt, the limited size of all possible possible textual writings will exhaust even before beginning to take on such a mindless exercise.
- O Nanak, call Him Great! He Himself knows Himself.
Step 23: Sing Glory to no one but Satgur & Gurbani
- When one Praises & writes for no one but Lord TRUTH & TRUE IDEAs, one become part of Praise Worthy Lord TRUTH himself .
- It is as simple as rivers & channels heading for ocean never attempt to go about the ocean in a bid to get at the extent of ocean's limits, the channels simply become part of the ocean itself .
- Such IDOLs of TRUTH can not be tempted & lured away from their faith in TRUTH & TRUE IDEAs & TRUTHful living. For them, highest of the kings and emperors, & mountains of property and oceans of wealth, unless dedicated to Lord TRUTH / HUMANITY, are worth not even an ant.
