What can be a better occasion than his birthday itself to echo his words. We bring you some golden words uttered by Guru Nanak Dev.

“He who has no faith in himself can never have faith in God”

“Speak only that which will bring you honour”

“Even kings and emperors, with mountains of property and oceans of wealth - these are not even equal to an ant, who does not forget God”

“I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste”

“Whatever kind of seed is sown in a field, prepared in due season, a plant of that same kind, marked with the peculiar qualities of the seed, springs up in it”

“Dwell in peace in the home of your own being, and the Messenger of Death will not be able to touch you”

“What should the yogi have to fear? Trees, plants, and all that is inside and outside, is He Himself”

“He who regards all men as equals is religious”

“There is but one God. True is His Name, creative His personality and immortal His form. He is without fear sans enmity, unborn and self-illumined. By the Guru's grace He is obtained”

“Death would not be called bad, O people, if one knew how to truly die”
