"Merge into God.
Knowledge of the Religious Texts will not save you at the time of your death.
Give up your endless thirst to amass wealth and fame.
Don’t  get drowned in delusion through uncontrolable passions and lust.
The life of man is as uncertain as rain drops on a lotus leaf.
Know that the entire world is not free from disease,ego and grief.
 What use is a lake which has no water? Where are the relatives when wealth is gone? Where is samsara (world) when the Truth is known?
Daylight and darkness, dusk and dawn, winter and springtime come and go.
Time plays and life ebbs away. But the storm of desire never leaves.
Merge into God,"

  3. Is "merge" the right word?
    It suggests that there was a separation beforehand.
    Whereas, it seems to me, that there never was a separation, only an ignorance of the truth.
    Not to argue here: that is not my intent.
    I prefer to believe that one is always part-of, even before one realizes that one is.
    I may be wrong...

  4. Hi The Crow,
    You are right in your own sense.What 'merge' here means,I think, is no more life and death after 'merging'.Then there is no 'part'..only HE.
    Thanks for sharing your insights.
    God bless.

  5. ਜਿਨੀ ਚਾਖਿਆ ਤਿਨੀ ਸਾਦੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਬਿਨੁ ਚਾਖੇ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਇ ॥ (੩੩-੨, ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ, ਮ ੩)

    Those who have tasted it, enjoy its flavor; without tasting it, they wander in doubt, lost and deceived.

    ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਨਾਮ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਨੂੰ ਚੱਖਿਆ ਹੈ, ਉਹ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਸੁਆਦ ਨੂੰ ਮਾਣਦੇ ਹਨ। ਇਸ ਨੂੰ ਚੱਖਣ ਦੇ ਬਗੈਰ ਇਨਸਾਨ ਵਹਿਮ ਅੰਦਰ ਭਟਕਦੇ ਹਨ।
