    Quotations from Adi Granth~~~

    Greed ~~~

    1. Absorbed in false greed,
    You have forgotten that death is the end;
    Even now no harm will be done to you,
    If you sing the glory of the Lord.
    GURU IC, TILANG RAG

    2. Unhappy is he,
    Who lives under the influence of greed,
    luxury, anger and pride.
    GURU III, GUJRI RAG

    3. Nanak, you may ask the wise people:
    Who could ever attain Him with lust and greed?
    GURU V, BIHAGARA RAG

    4. Man is lost in greed,
    And does not know his own interest.
    O my greedy mind,
    You are ever lost in greed.
    He who is lost in greed for worldly things,
    Is neither honoured in this world nor in the next.
    He who is full of greed for wealth of someone who is dead,
    Has wasted his valuable life.
    Though the light in one's eyes has dimmed.
    Yet one craves for a long life.
    Lord, the surge of greed is very fierce,
    And this boat of mine is about to sink.
    NAMDEVJI BASANT RAG

    4. The surging greed is like the madness of a dog,
    This madness has vitiated all.
    GURU V, NATNARAYAN RAG

    5. What is that love which is based on greed?
    When there is greed, the love is false.
    FARIDJI, SHALOKAS

    6. My mind is foolish,
    It is lured away by greed.
    GURU I, SRI RAG

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    Re: Quotations from Adi Granth~~~ MAYA~~~

    Maya~~~

    1. What is Maya? What actions are Maya? Maya is where one is bound to Pain and Pleasure, and one acts in Ego. (Sri Rag M. 3)

    2. Maya and attachment are also God's Creation; He Himself deludes us (through them) The Egocentric does (pious) acts, but knows not the Lord and wastes His life away.
    (Sri Rag M. 3)

    3. Nanak: They, who Dwelt on the Lord's Name, are eternally in communion with the Lord.
    (Maya is in the service of the Master and she serves too the Servants of the Lord. (Var of Sri Rag M. 4, Shlokas)

    4. One's mind wanders, lured by Maya, and yet it clings to it; He, whom Thou Savest, O Lord, from seeking Maya, alone is imbued with the Love of Thy Name. (Shloka of Gauri Bavan Akhri M. 5)

    5. Maya is like a mirage, the mind's delusion, the deer's craze, the (passing) shade of a tree.
    She is mercurial of mind, and in the end, goes not along with us. (Bilawal M. 5)

    6. I tried to grasp (Maya) with care, but she eluded my grasp: Howsoever I loved her, she kept not my company for long. Says Nanak, "When I abandoned and discarded her with contempt, Then she paid obeisance to me and fell at my feet." (Ramkali M. 5)

    7. This Maya makes us forake the Lord: and love for the Other wells up in the mind. Says Nanak: "They, who are Attuned to the Lord, by the Guru's Grace, Attain to the Lord in the midst of Maya." (Ramkali M. 3, Anand)

    8. (Maya), the woman, gives birth to (the mind), her husband, and this son (of the mind) overwhelms even his father, (the Soul), And makes her suck the milk (of Desire) shorn of the breasts (of Bliss). See Ye, O men, such are the ways of the Kali-age, That the Son marries his own Mother. Lo, without feet, this mind jumps, And it laughs without a mouth. Though in essence ever Awake, it Sleeps, And without a jar, it churns the curds. The mind is a cow without the teats: It journeys out and afar, though the Distance (between it and God) is so short. It finds not the Path without the True Guru; This is the Essence of all Wisdom that Kabir proclaims. (Rag Basant: The Word of Bhakta Kabirji)

    9. O Fly, O Maya, O thou creation of God ! Thou sittest only on Dirt and lickest the 'sweet' Poison of Illusion. Thou stayest nowhere: this is thy state I've seen with my Eyes; Save for the Saint, thou hast affected everyone, for the Saints keep ever on the side of God. All creatures are bewitched by thee, but save for the Saints no one has known thy bare reality. Nanak, the Lord's Servant, is Attuned to the Lord's Praise, and sees the Lord's Presence, Enshrining the (Guru's) Word in his Consciousness. (Sarang M. 5)

    10. Lo, Maya dances its devil-dance and yokes everyone to Vice; she entices away even the sun and the moon: And when tinkle her ankle-bells, Evil rankles with us; its myriad gestures bewitch and beguile any one but God. (Pause)

    She has affected the three Worlds, and outer discipline erases not its effect; and men, involved in Strife, are intoxicated with its wind and are tossed about as on the high seas. Only the Lord's Saints are Saved, and are Delivered they of the Yama's Noose; So Contemplate thou Him alone, whose Name Santifies even the Sinners.
    (Sarang M. 5)

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    Miracles~~~


    1. (If the Lord Wills), He may make the tigers and hawks and kites and falcons eat grass.
    And the grass-eating animals he may feed the meats.
    He may dry up the beds of the streams and flood the deserts.
    A mere worm he may exalt to kingship and reduce to dust the armies (arrayed against him).
    All creatures live by breathing; but He may keep one without breath, if He Wills.
    Nanak: As the True One Wills, so doth man abide. (Shloka M. 1)

    2. If I clothed myself with fire, and abided in the house of snow and chewed  iron for my feed,
    And I gulped down all pain like water, and drove the world before me.
    And weighed I the earth and the skies in the scales with a mere copper.
    And if so great I be that I contained not myself within me, and all were driven by my will,
    And so powerful were my mind that I did what I willed, while others were followed.
    (Vain would this be all) for, as Great is the Lord, so is His Mercy which
    He Bestows in His Will.
    Nanak: He, on whom is His Grace, he attains the Glory of the True Name. (Shloka M. 1)

    3. If the Lord grants power to a mere ant, She can destroy myriads of hosts.
    He, whose life He does not like to end, Him he Protects with His Glorious hands,
    But his doings avail him not. (Gauri Sukhmani M. 5)

    4. One practises many postures, like a Siddha, but one's mind craves to possess extra-psychic powers.
    But, when one meets with the Saint Peace comes to Him, and He is blest with the Miraculous powers of the Lord's Name. (Bilawal, M. 4)

    5. To work miracles is vain, an empty show. (Japu, M. 1)

    6. To crave for the world's treasures, or to become a miracle-man is vain.For, thiswise, we break not off (the chains of) Desire, and the Lord's Name abides not in our mind. (Var, Vadhans, M. 3)

    7. Without the Lord's Name, all miracls, all extra-psychic powers, all eats and wears, are of no consequence. That alone is a miracle which the Lord of Himself blesses us with. (Var, Sorath, M. 3)

    8. Nanak, call that a miracle Which the Lord graciously bestows.
    (Guru II, Asa Raga)

    9. When the Lord gives unexpectedly,It is called a miracle.
    (Guru III, Sorath Raga)

    10. The desire to possess miraculous powers is a false attachment, It keeps out the love of Nam from the heart.
    (Guru III, Vadhans Raga)

    Peace. (Maru, M. 3)

    28. That what the Creator-Lord does, that alone comes to pass, and even if one tries a hundred tricks, one attains only what is Writ by God. Without Destiny, one attains nothing even if one roams the whole world. (Suhi, M. 5)

    for I crave for nothing but the love of Thy Lotus-Feet. Thou art Brahma, Shiva, Indra, the ascetic, the seer. In Thy Presence alone are they all contained. I Thy meek slave, O Master, seek Thy Door and cling, in utter
    humility, to the Refuge of Thy Saints. (Devghandhari, M )

    Life And Death~~~
     
    1. From days, quarters from quarters hours; so our life wears off. For death, like hunter or a butcher walks abroad; O, what is one to do to save oneself ? (Rag Dhanasri, Bhagat Kabirji)

    12. The Lord has given us a fixed number of days: they increase not, nor do they decrease even by an iota.

    13. As the pigeon falls into the net, so are the self-willed trapped by death. (Bihagra, M. 4)

    15. As water mingles with water, so man's light merges with God's light. (Ibid)

    (Var of Rag Suhi M. 3, Shloka, M. 2)

    35. All this is the creation of the Lord, and one comes and goes as is the unfathomable Will of God. Neither one comes nor is one capable of dying. Nor one perishes, for, the Soul is eternal and ever-alive. (Ramkali, M. 5, 10)

    36. In thy childhood you were ignorant and blind. And in your youth, you were lured away by sin. In the third stage, you gather riches and when you get old, regretfully you leave them all off.
    (Ramkali, M. 5)

    37. Lo, another one, beguiled by Maya, gold and women, has passed away, abandoning beauty, love, fragrance and other joys of the flesh. He was proud of his vast treasures and was comforted in mind. But nothing kept him company (in the end). (Ramkali, M. 5)

    38. Nanak: Life is the fish, the fisherman the desire, like death. The blind mind thinks not and lo, he's netted. (Shloka M. 1, Var of Ramkali M. 3)

    39. (Thy Life) passes like the shade of the tree or like the clouds scattered by the winds. (Maru M. 5)

    40. One loads the Boat (of life) with sin and launches it upon the Sea (of material existence),
    and lo, one sees not the yonder shore, nor the port of sail. Dreadful is the Sea, but there is no Boatman, nor the rows to row the boat across. (Maru, 1)
