Compassion and humility: These were the hallmarks of the great enlightened Master of Sikhism, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Born in 1469 in today’s Punjab, Guru Nanak Dev Ji from an early age sought a deeper connection with the Divine. His teachings were simple: find God within, do honest work, meditate, and share with others.

Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on more than one occasion of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s wisdom. In a talk given on February 26, 2007, in Hsihu, Taiwan (Formosa), She affirmed His spiritual attainment and revealed the mission of His travels. “He went to Mecca as a Sikh. A Sikh Master, a founder of a great religion went to Mecca to pay homage to the Muslims’ holy shrine. Why does he do that? (I think He’s enlightened.) He’s enlightened. So, from this we know Guru Nanak definitely is enlightened. Because the first thing an enlightened person gets rid of is discrimination, racism, thinking who is better than whom.”

Ang 31 “O mind, vibrate and meditate forever on the Lord; seek the Protection of His Sanctuary. If the Word of the Guru's Shabad abides deep within, then you shall not forget the Lord.”

Ang 32 “The spiritually blind do not even think of the Naam; they are all bound and gagged by the Messenger of Death. Meeting the True Guru, the wealth is obtained, contemplating the Name of the Lord in the heart. Those who are attuned to the Naam are immaculate and pure; through the Guru, they obtain intuitive peace and poise. Their minds and bodies are dyed in the Color of the Lord's Love, and their tongues savor His Sublime Essence. O Nanak, that Primal Color which the Lord has applied, shall never fade away.”

“Without the Guru there is no devotional worship. Those whom He unites with Himself, understand and become pure. The Dear Lord is True, and True is the Word of His Bani (Holy Text). Through the Shabad, we merge with Him.”
