ਤਿਲਕ ਜੰਵੂ ਰਾਖਾ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਤਾ ਕਾ ॥ ਕੀਨੋ ਬਡੋ ਕਲੂ ਮਹਿ ਸਾਕਾ ॥
ਸਾਧਨ ਹੇਤਿ ਇਤੀ ਜਿਨਿ ਕਰੀ ॥ ਸੀਸ ਦੀਆ ਪਰ ਸੀ ਨ ਉਚਰੀ ॥੧੩॥

Guru Tegh Bahadur Quotes
“Why go to search forests (to find Him). He, who dwells in all hearts but remains ever pure, pervades thy heart also. Just as fragrance fills the rose and reflection the mirror, the Lord pervades all without a break; search Him inside thee. The Guru hath revealed this knowledge that the Aum pervades inside and outside. Saith Nanak, without knowing thyself the scum of doubt will not be removed.”
“Give up your head, but forsake not those whom you have undertaken to protect. Sacrifice your life, but relinquish not your faith.”
“One who vanquishes his ego and beholds the Lord as the Sole Doer of all things, that person has attained ‘Jiwan Mukti’ (is liberated while living), know this as the real truth, says Nanak.”
“O saints, renounce the Ego, and always flee from lust, wrath and evil company. One should consider pain and pleasure, honour and dishonour the same. One should renounce both praise and blame and even the search for salvation. This is a very difficult path and rare is a (Gurmukh) pious person who knows how to tread it.”
“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.”
“True Realisation of the actual nature of this material world, its perishable, transitory and illusory aspects best dawns on a person in suffering.”
“O mother, I have been blessed with the wealth of God’s Name. My Mind is free from wandering and is established in peace. Avarice and worldly love dare not touch me and pure divine knowledge fills me. Greed and desire cannot affect me. I am totally immersed in Lord’s devotion.”
“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.”
Poem on Guru Tegh Bahadur in Punjabi
हरगोबिन्द गुरू दे पुत्तर
तेग़ बहादर प्यारे ।
माता साहिब नानकी जी दे,
रौशन अक्खी तारे ।
ज्युं कसतूरी नाफे विचों
ख़ुशबू पई खिलारे ।
उमर निक्की विच, गुरूआं वाले
लच्छन चमके सारे ।
मात पिता ने लाल पुत्तर दे
दरशन जिस पल पाए ।
ख़ुशियां दे विच्च मोतियां वाले,
भर भर बुक्क लुटाए ।
डुल्ह डुल्ह पैंदी छापे विच्चों
ज्युं डल्हक प्यारे नग दी ।
लाट ‘उतारां वाली वेखी
मसतक अन्दर जगदी ।
धरमी रण विच्च पुत्त प्यारा
पूरा जोधा डिट्ठा ।
रख दित्ता तां ‘तेग़ बहादर’
नाम प्यारा मिट्ठा ।
