錫克教

 

Guru Nanak

Si-1

There is One God.

He is the supreme truth

He, The Creator

Is without fear and without hate.

He, The Omnipresent,

Pervades the Universe.

Nor does He die to be born again,

By His grace shalt thou worship Him.

Before time itself,

There was truth.

When time began to run its course

He was the truth.

Even now, He is the truth

And

Evermore shall truth prevail*

(Guru Nanak)

Siri Guru Granth Sahib

Si-2

All are subject to his will and none is exempt from it, Nanak! If man were to understand Lord’s will, then no one would take.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 2 )

Si-3

“There are millions of worlds below and above ours,

Man’s mind is tired of this great search.

It cannot reach the end of His vastness.

How can the Infinite be reduced to the finite?

All attempts to describe Him are futile

He alone knows how great He is

None knoweth the Lord’s beginnings nor His end.”

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 5)

Si-4

Avoid such dresses which cause pain in body and arouse passion in the mind.

If we serve humanity in this world, then we would be welcomed in the court of God.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 26)

Si-8

No man shall coerce another;

No man shall exploit another.

Everyone, each individual, has

An inalienable birth-right to seek

And pursue happiness and self-fulfillment

Love and persuasion is the only law

Of social coherence and harmony.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 74)

Si-9

Having created the universe the Lord abides, therein, He, who avails of the life time, is really the servant of God.

Si-10

There is only one air, earth and only one light of the God in each being.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 96)

Si-11

Cruelty, worldly love, avarice and wrath are the four streams of fire. By falling into them, the mortal is burnt O’Nanak! Emancipation is obtained by clinging to a living of truthfulness.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 137)

Si-12

Nanak, without the Guru, there is no spiritual honour and without this honour one cannot ferry across the worldly ocean.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 138)

Si-13

If one goes on living the life of indignity,

Such life is not worth living

For such a life, all eating, is eating in shame.

Si-19

You are the embodiment of light.  O Man recognize thy essence.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 441)

Divine knowledge is not acquired by mere words. To describe it, is hard like iron. If one becomes the recipient of Lord’s grace, then alone he obtains it. Other contrivances and orders are but ruinous.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 465)

Si-21

If thou desirest thy good, O Man , perform virtuous deeds and be humble.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 465)

The sinner, like the deer-hunter, bows twice as much

Says Nanak, mediate thou on True Lord. If thou art pure, then alone shalt thou obtain the True One.

Si-24

Of women are we born, of women conceived

To woman betrothed and wedded;

Women we befriend, by her continues the human race;

When woman dies, woman is sought, for it is she who maintains world order;

Why revile her of whom are born the great?

Of woman is born another woman; none exists without her;

The Eternal God, says Nanak, is the only One not born of her.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 473)

Si-25

Render thou such service, as may bring thee some profit.

So many are the chains round the neck,

Ye, one removes the vices with the cultivation of virtues in life

As virtues are our only friends.

Si-29

We treat everybody as our friend

And all are our associates.

Chastity, contentment and truthfulness I ever gather in my lap and my God loves me for my truthfulness.

Nanak, they who are bereft of the lord’s grace, obtain not honour ever.

Without the Shabad the people wander astray,

Attune your mind to the world, GURU.”

Si-48

The body is the temple of God in which are revealed precious pearls of knowledge.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 1346)

Si-49

The Lord first created the light;

From the Lord’s play all living creatures came,

And from the Divine Light the whole creation sprang.

Why then should we divide humans into high and low creatures.

Brother, be not in error;

Out of the Creator the creation comes;

Everywhere in the creation the Creator is;

The Lord’s spirit is all-pervading!

The Lord, the Maker, has molded one mass of clay into

Vessels of diverse shapes.

Free from taint are all the vessels of clay

Since free from taint is the Divine Potter.

(Siri Guru Granth SahibPage 1349)

 

Guru Gobind Singh Ji

Si-50

“Recognise all mankind whether Hindu or Muslims, as one.

The same Lord is the Creator and Nourisher of all;

Recognise no distinction among them.

The monastery and the mosque are the same;

So are the Hindu worship and the Muslim prayer.

Men are all one.”

賈卜吉

Si-51

In this life our actions are the ink and mind the paper, We inscribe on it the two writings of good and evil.

(《賈卜吉》2

Si-54

Truth is the highest of all virtues, but higher than truth is true conduct.

真理是一切美德中最高的,但是比真理更高的是合乎真理的行為。
