The peaceful path of Sikhism has appealed to spiritual seekers around the world. In global communities, many Sikh practitioners continue the noble spiritual lineage of vegetarianism. Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on more than one occasion of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s wisdom. “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? 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.”

We now would like to share with you an excerpt of the magnanimous teachings of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, from the sacred scriptures known as the Holy “Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.” Ang 34 “With faith in the Shabad, the Guru is found, and selfishness is eradicated from within. Night and day, worship the True Lord with devotion and love forever. The Treasure of the Naam abides in the mind; O Nanak, in the poise of perfect balance, merge into the Lord. Siree Raag, Third Mehl: Those who do not serve the True Guru shall be miserable throughout the four ages. The Primal Being is within their own home, but they do not recognize Him. They are plundered by their egotistical pride and arrogance. They wander around the world begging, until they are exhausted. They do not serve the True Word of the Shabad, which is the solution to all of their problems.”

“Serving the True Guru, the mind becomes immaculate and pure; egotism and corruption are discarded. So, abandon your selfishness, and remain dead while yet alive. Contemplate the Word of the Guru's Shabad. The pursuit of worldly affairs comes to an end, when you embrace love for the True One. Those who are attuned to Truth – their faces are radiant in the Court of the True Lord.”

“With intuitive ease, cultivate your farm, and plant the Seed of the True Name. The seedlings have sprouted luxuriantly, and with intuitive ease, the mind is satisfied. The Word of the Guru's Shabad is Ambrosial Nectar; drinking it in, thirst is quenched. This true mind is attuned to Truth, and it remains permeated with the True One.”
