Jul 30, 2004
Gurfateh Ji!

Das is interested to know about a verse in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

It is by Bhagat Kabeer Ji.

In That he states that to worship God,By giving Examples nothing could be ideal.

For worshipping God one has to be perfect like God.

Das wants this help from all brothers and sister to tell him that on which page(Ang).This verse is?

Gauree, Kabeer Jee:If Yoga could be obtained by wandering around naked,then all the deer of the forest would be liberated. ||1||What does it matter whether someone goes naked, or wears a deer skin,if he does not remember the Lord within his soul? ||1||Pause||If the spiritual perfection of the Siddhas could be obtained by shaving the head,then why haven't sheep found liberation? ||2||If someone could save himself by celibacy, O Siblings of Destiny,why then haven't eunuchs obtained the state of supreme dignity? ||3||Says Kabeer, listen, O men, O Siblings of Destiny:without the Lord's Name, who has ever found salvation? ||4||4||

Gauree :The Yogi says that Yoga is good and sweet, and nothing else is, O Siblings of Destiny.Those who shave their heads, and those who amputate their limbs, and those who utter only a single word, all say that they have attained the spiritual perfection of the Siddhas. ||1||Without the Lord, the blind ones are deluded by doubt.And those, to whom I go to find release - they themselves are bound by all sorts of chains. ||1||Pause||The soul is re-absorbed into that from which it originated, when one leaves this path of errors.The scholarly Pandits, the virtuous, the brave and the generous, all assert that they alone are great. ||2||He alone understands, whom the Lord inspires to understand. Without understanding, what can anyone do?Meeting the True Guru, the darkness is dispelled, and in this way, the jewel is obtained. ||3||Give up the evil actions of your left and right hands, and grasp hold of the Feet of the Lord.Says Kabeer, the mute has tasted the molasses, but what can he say about it if he is asked? ||4||7||51||
