10 Sayings By Guru Nanak Dev Ji That'll Help You Navigate Through Life

Nandita Kochar

Nanak naam jahaaj hai. Charhe so uttare paar (O Nanak, the name of Waheguru is like a ship which will take you to your salvation)

This saying by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism, is what so many souls around the world turn to during difficult times. His life was full of events that contained so much wisdom. He jotted down his experiences from these events and shared his learnings with the world in the form of Guru Granth Sahib. Here are some of the gems from the book that’ll help you navigate the rough tides of life. 

“He who has no faith in himself can never have faith in God.”

“Burn worldly love, rub the ashes and make ink of it, make the heart the pen, the intellect the writer, write that which has no end or limit.”

Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.

“Death would not be called bad, O people, if one knew how to truely die.”

“There are worlds and more worlds below them, and there are a hundred thousand skies over them. No one has been able to find the limits and boundaries of God. If there be any account of God, then alone the mortal can write the same; but God's account does not finish, and the mortal himself dies while still writing.”

“Dwell in peace in the home of your own being, and the messenger of Death won’t be able to touch you.”

“The world is a drama, staged in a dream.”

“Speak only that which will bring you honor.”

“Those who have loved are those who have found God.”

“He who regards all men as equals is religious.”
