In a dream I was walking alone along life’s road. No one was in sight but then I looked down, and suddenly I noticed I was surrounded by shadows.
Whatever is seen, shall all pass away, like the shadow of a cloud.
O servant Nanak, one who knows the world to be unreal (a dream)
dwells in the Sanctuary of the Divine One.

when the breath of life passes out of the mortal being,

Power, wealth, pleasures and enjoyments,

Righteousness and faith,
success and prosperity,
pleasure, the fulfillment of desires and liberation
– all follow the humble servant of the Creator/Creation
like a shadow.
