There Is But One God

Guru Nanak

Passages for Meditation

There is but one God.
Truth is his name,
Maker of all things,
Free from fear and hate,
Timeless, birthless, self-existent,
Known by the grace of the Guru.
Meditate on the True Name,
True in the beginning,
True in all ages.
He is true now
And he shall ever be true, says Nanak.

Guru Nanak (1469-1539) was a Punjabi saint, founder of the Sikh religion and revered by Hindus and Muslim Sufis. This passage is published in Easwaran’s spiritual anthology, “Timeless Wisdom.”
