DIRECTION by Livia Kaur

Once I was standing on the side of the road, there was total darkness.

An old sikh man was passing by dressed in white , passing so close to me that I noticed him.

I said in a loud voice “It is so dark I cannot see. Where are you going?”.

He answered, “I am going to the Gurdwara”.

“How can you see the direction to the Gurdwara, how can you see in the dark?”

 

The Gurmukh knows the Divine Light,

while the foolish manmukh (egotist, talking head)

gropes around in the darkness.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 34

Engrossed in egotism, the world perishes.

Without the Guru (True Teacher/Teachings), there is utter darkness

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 39

 

Like a lamp lit in the darkness, the spiritual wisdom of Guruji (the SGGS) dispels ignorance.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 54

One who does not fear the Fearless One shall live in fear; without the Guru (True Teacher/Teachings), there is only pitch darkness.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 55

Without Guruji, there is only pitch darkness; without the Shabad (True Teachings), understanding is not obtained

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 78

 

The entire night of your life has passed away in darkness; but by serving the True Guru, the Divine Light shall dawn within.

.Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 87

 

The Divine Light shines in their hearts, and like the sun which removes the darkness of night, it dispels the darkness of ignorance.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Page 124

Without the Shabad, there is only darkness within.

    Also at page 67 of Guru Granth Sahib, Guru Sahib tells us that the self-willed persons do misdeeds without understanding and accordingly they lose their life in vain. “Gurbaani is the Divine Light in this world. But it could be realised by God’s Grace.

    Sun gives light during day only whereas Gurbaani
    enlightens us day and night including to those
    who could not see due to blindness. So, let us contemplate Gurbaani and obey to elevate our lives. thanks,

  2. In God’s order and Guru’s Grace everything can be acheive for life .
    keep it up .
