“4 :
...
الحقيقة هي السيد ، ..
و الحقيقة هي اسمه و كلامه ،
مع حب غير محدود

الناس يتضرعون و يصلون :
(اعطنا .. اعطنا)
و المعطي العظيم يعطيهم هداياه

فما التقدمة التي نستطيع وضعها أمامه ،
بعد كل هذا ، كي تشفع لنا في محكمته ؟


ما هي الكلمات التي نستطيع قولها
لاستحضار حبه ؟
...

في وقت السحر ،
بساعات اللذة الروحانية فيما قبل الفجر
أنشد اسمه
و تأمل عظمته و مجده
...
بواسطة الكرمة
(Karma)
حصلنا على هذا الرداء من الجسد المادي ..،
و بنعمته عثرنا على بوابة التحرر

اوه ناناك ، نعرف هذا جيدا:
الواحد الصحيح .. هو نفسه .. الكل

*****
*(الكارما هي مجموعة من تصرفاتنا السابقة في حيوات و تجسدات اخرى ، و التي ربما أدت الى اعادة تجسدنا مرة اخرى ، و عدم تحرر ارواحنا من التجسد كما يعتقد المؤمنين بها، و يعتقد السيخ بامكانية تحرر ارواحنا من التجسد بواسطة نعمة الله الحق)”
― Guru Nanak, quote from Sri Guru Granth Sahib


“2 :
...
أنت تفكر و تفكر
عشرة آلاف فكرة
.. و لكن و لا فكرة واحدة
سوف تعطيك
ماتسعى اليه حقا

تجلس في صمت
لتعثر على الصمت
.. و لكن الصمت لا يأتي ابدا.
***
روحك تغني دائما
أغنية إلهية
***
كل متاعبك
و كل همومك
لن تتلاشى ابدا
حتى و لو امتلكت
كل كنوز العالم

و رغم كل الحيل الذكية
التى تستخدمها
.. الحيل التي لا تعد و لا تحصى
لن يبقى معك
و لا حتى شخص واحد ...

كيف يمكننا أن نجد
بيت الحقيقة ؟


كيف يمكننا أن نكسر
هذا الجدار من الأكاذيب ؟

: سلم نفسك
و سر في طريق إرادة
(الروح)

آوه ناناك :
إنه المكتوب ،
و يجب أن نطيع ، و نسير في طريق إرادتها”
― Guru Nanak, quote from Sri Guru Granth Sahib


“((المانترا الرئيسية)) :
...
روح واحدة ..
وراء حركة الكون ..
توازنه ..
وحدته ..
استمراريته ..
وجوده ...

انها داخلي
.. و هي هويتي الحقيقية

هي الفاعل ..
و السبب من وراء الفعل

.. تحميني في كل الأحوال
، و في أي زمان أو مكان

لا تخشى شئ
.. و لا تعرف شئ
عن الظلم أو الرعونة ..


خالدة
.. لم تلد و لم تولد

تتدفق من خلال دورات
الميلاد .. و الموت
.. تتحرك بقدرتها .. و صفائها
*****
هذا الفهم سوف يأتي لك
كنعمة حلوة
كهدية ..

.. و في كل لحظة ستمر
سيظل تذكرك له مستمر
*****
.. منذ البداية
و تلك هي الحقيقة الوحيدة

في كل زمان او مكان
تلك هي الحقيقة

و حتى الآن ..
فتلك هي الحقيقة الوحيدة

آوه ناناك :
انها الوحيدة على الإطلاق”
― Guru Nanak, quote from Sri Guru Granth Sahib


“1 :
...
بإرادة الروح
تأتي أشكال لا تعد و لا تحصى ..

و بسبب هذه الإرادة
لا أستطيع حتى أن أتكلم ..

بإرادة الروح
((أي روح القدس))
تأتي جميع الأرواح

اندمج في هذه الروح
و كن عظيما ..

يإرادة الروح
يكون الخير و الشر

و بها يكتب
الألم و السلام
للجميع .

للبعض ، تحضر
الهدايا الوفيرة

للبعض ، تودي
إلى تيه لا نهاية له

كل شئ موجود ضمن تلك الإرادة
.. لا شئ كاذب من ورائها

آه يا ناناك :
إذا فهمت
الإرادة الإلهية
لن تجد
(نفسك)
شئ لتقوله”
― Guru Nanak, quote from Sri Guru Granth Sahib



“3 :
...
بعض الغناء لقوته ،
من يملك مثل هذه القوة !؟

بعض الغناء لعطاياه ..
لعلاماته و إشاراته

بعض الغناء لمجده المميز ،
عظيم هو و جميل

بعض الغناء لنعمة التحصل على معرفته ،
من خلال الدراسات الفلسفية الصعبة !

بعض الغناء لأنه من صمم الجسد ،
ثم قلّصه مرة أخرى إلى غبار

بعض الغناء لأنه من يأخذ الحياة ،
و يعيدها مرة أخرى !

بعض الغناء لأنه يبدو ..
بعيدا .. بعيدا جدا

بعض الغناء لأنه قريبا منّا جدا ،
الآن .. و في أي وقت مضى

بعض الغناء لأنه ،
لم يقصّر في ارسال من يعلموننا و يوعظوننا

ملايين و ملايين ، قدموا لنا
ملايين الخطب و الحكايات
...
المعطي العظيم مستمر في العطاء ،
بينما هؤلاء المستعطين ، يضجرون من عطاءه

و على مر العصور ، يعطي ،
.. و يستهلكون !

انه يقودنا بإشاراته
إلى السير على الطريق

اوه ناناك :
انه طريق يزهر
بالبهجة و السلام”
― Guru Nanak, quote from Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Popular quotes

“Where, My Lord, is music bred—upon the instrument or within the ear that listens? The loveliness of woman is created in the eye of man.”
― Isak Dinesen, quote from Seven Gothic Tales


“Life is a cruel teacher. It punishes you first, and then gives you the lesson.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, quote from Rich Dad's Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest in That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!


“If you suffered from neglect in childhood, it may cause you to go from one person to another, hoping that someone will supply whatever is missing. You may not be able to care much about yourself, and think marriage will end this, and then find yourself in the alarming situation of being married but emotionally unattached. . . . Moreover, the person who [has] neglect in his background is always restless and anxious because he cannot obtain emotional satisfaction. . . . These restless, impulsive moves help to create the illusion of living emotionally. . . . Such a person may, for example, be engaged to be married to one person and simultaneously be maintaining sexual relationships with two or three others. Anyone who offers admiration and respect has appeal to them—and because their need for affection is so great, their ability to discriminate is severely impaired.21”
― Jerold J. Kreisman, quote from I Hate You, Don't Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality


“What John Ayers was doing seemed routine. But to the few who knew, and watched, it was a thing of beauty. The ball is snapped and John Ayers sees Taylor coming, and slides quickly back one step and to his left. And as he slides, he steps to meet his future. He’s stepping into 1985, when the turf will be fast and he won’t be able to deal with Lawrence Taylor…. Another quick step, back and left, and it’s 1986, and he’s injured and on the sidelines when the Giants send Joe Montana to the hospital and the 49ers home on the way to their own Super Bowl victory…. A third quick step and he crouches like one power forward denying another access to the hoop. But now it’s 1987 and Coach Bill Walsh is advising John Ayers to retire. Ayers ignores the advice and then learns that Walsh won’t invite him back to training camp…. He takes his final quick step back and left and times his blow, to stop dead in his tracks the most terrifying force ever launched at an NFL quarterback. “I don’t think I’ve ever played against a football player who had more drive and intensity to get to the quarterback,” John Ayers will say, after it’s all over, and he’s been given the game ball by his teammates. “It was almost like he was possessed.”…But now it’s 1995, and John Ayers has just died of cancer, at forty-two, and left behind a wife and two children. Joe Montana charters a plane to fly a dozen teammates to Amarillo, Texas, to serve as pall-bearers. At the funeral of John Ayers the letter of tribute from Bill Walsh is read aloud.”
― Michael Lewis, quote from The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game


“The horror of that image has never diminished, but it has long ceased to be a morbid matter; as with a wound on one's own body, it is possible to develop an intimacy with the most disturbing of things.”
― Kazuo Ishiguro, quote from A Pale View of Hills

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2023, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
