Love Never Dies: Guru Nanak Devotional Poetry

‘Guru Nanak Dev Ji’ was born on 15 April 1469 at Rāi Bhoi Kī Talvaṇḍī, now called Nankana Sahib, near Lahore, Pakistan. He was the son of Kalyan Chand Das Bedi and Mata Tripta. His father was a patwari (accountant) for crop revenue in the village of Talwandi. Guru Nanak Dev was married to Mata Sulakkhani.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji is the founder of the religion of Sikhism and is the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. He travelled to places far and wide teaching people the message of one God who dwells in every one of God’s creations and constitutes the eternal Truth. It is part of Sikh religious belief that the spirit of Guru Nanak’s sanctity, divinity and religious authority descended upon each of the nine subsequent Gurus when the Guruship was devolved on to them. Guru Nanak Dev Ji died on September 22, 1539 at the age of 70.

The birthday of Guru Nanak Dev is celebrated as Guruparab. His birthday is celebrated in the month of Kartik on the day of full moon known as Kartik Purnima. It is one of the biggest festivals of Sikhs. On this day Sikhs offer their prayers and pay homage to the Guru Granth Sahib.

Guru Nanak is in the stars and skies,
Guru Nanak’s love light never dies.

Guru Nanak’s in the rivers and seas,
Guru Nanak’s in the grass and trees.

Guru Nanak hears each being’s cries,
Guru Nanak’s love light never dies.

Guru Nanak’s in the desert and dune,
Guru Nanak’s the Shabad Kirtan tune.

Guru Nanak’s in the sun and moon,
Guru Nanak’s with me night and noon.

Guru Nanak’s in my heart and soul,
Guru Nanak’s vision is my greatest goal.

Guru Nanak’s Naam is in every breath,
Guru Nanak’s Amrit destroys death.

Guru Nanak’s hand is above my hair,
Guru Nanak protects me everywhere.

Guru Nanak’s in each beating heart,
Guru Nanak’s the dawn after dark.

Guru Nanak’s the light of my life,
Guru Nanak’s my Father higher than high.

Guru Nanak is Guru Granth Sahib jee,
Guru Nanak’s in our lives eternally.

Guru Nanak is my very best friend,
I bow to Guru Nanak again and again.

Love Never Dies
