Quotes by Guru Tegh Bahadur:
Give up your head, but forsake not those whom you have undertaken to protect. Sacrifice your life, but relinquish not your faith.
True Realization of the actual nature of this material world, its perishable, transitory and illusory aspects best dawns on a person in suffering.
For whom praise and dispraise are the same, and on whom greed and attachment have no effect. Consider him only enlightened whom pain and pleasure do not entrap. Consider such a person saved.
Consider the man, who meditates on God, day and night as His image. Between God and His servant there is no dissimilarity – recognize this to be true.
The person who has given up his egoism by recognizing God as the creator, shall get deliverance; be sure of this truth, O my mind.
Whatever has been created shall be destroyed; everyone shall perish, today or tomorrow. O Nanak, sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord, and give up all other entanglements.
If the hands, feet, or body are covered with dust, they are cleansed by washing them with water. if clothes are made unclean, by use of soap they are washed of impurity. If the buddhi (intellect) is defined by sin, love of the Name will purify it.
Thou wasn’t born a man, but didst not remember God even for an instant. Thou hast become a slave to gratification of lust and hast got thy feet shackled.
O man, what shall be thy lot? To the Name of God didst thou not lend thy ear in this world, and remained totally engrossed in sensual pleasures and didst not turn away thy mind from these.
