The snow falls……

This Shabad is by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Raag Tukhaari on Pannaa 1109
In Poh, the snow falls, and the sap of the trees and the fields dries up.
Why have You not come? I keep You in my mind, body and mouth.
He is permeating and pervading my mind and body; He is the Life of the World. Through the Word of the Guru’s Shabad, I enjoy His Love.
His Light fills all those born of eggs, born from the womb, born of sweat and born of the earth, each and every heart.
Grant me the Blessed Vision of Your Darshan, O Lord of Mercy and Compassion. O Great Giver, grant me understanding, that I might find salvation.
O Nanak, the Lord enjoys, savors and ravishes the bride who is in love with Him. 14

Osho talking about Guru Granth Sahib

GURU GRANTHA has compiled the sayings of ten living masters, ten enlightened ones. I say that no other book can be compared to it. It is incomparable. Nanak says, “Ek omkar satnam — only one thing is true, the name of the inexpressible.” In the East we call it omkar, om — only that is true. The sound of the soundless… the silence that pervades after the sound has left…ek omkar satnam.

O Nanak, He has no end or limitation. ||2||

Do not peck my eyes……

O Raven, you have searched my skeleton, and eaten all my flesh. But please do not touch these eyes as I hope to behold my Beloved. (91) (AG 1382)
Sheikh Farid said this after many years of devotion to God…..even then his longing had not gone. This scene is beautifully painted by Jaswant:
Below is the Dargah or resting place of Sheikh Farid Shakarganj.

True is the Master, and True is His Justice; only the sinners are defeated. saalaahihu bhagathahu kar jorr har bhagath jan thaaradhaa 18. O devotees, praise the Lord with your palms pressed together; the Lord saves His humble devotees. 18

This body is the home of Dharma

Pauree: This body is the home of Dharma; the Divine Light of the True Lord is within it. Hidden within it are the jewels of mystery; how rare is that Gurmukh, that selfless servant, who digs them out.
When someone realizes the All-pervading Soul, then he sees the One and Only Lord permeating, through and through. He sees the One, he believes in the One, and with his ears, he listens only to the One. O servant Nanak, praise the Naam, the Name of the Lord; this is your service to the Lord, the Truest of the True. 16
