XX. Warning to the Atheists and Materialists


ਮਨਮੁਖਾ ਨੋ ਫਿਰਿ ਜਨਮੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਏ ॥੨॥ {੪੫੦}

ਗੁਰ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਹੀਣਸ´ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਣੀ ਧ੍ਰਿਗੰਤ ਜਨਮ ਭ੍ਰਸਟਣਹ ॥
ਕੂਕਰਹ ਸੂਕਰਹ ਗਰਧਭਹ ਕਾਕਹ ਸਰਪਨਹ ਤੁਲਿ ਖਲਹ ॥੩੩॥ {੧੩੫੭}
A person who is devoid of the Holy Name (ਗੁਰ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ), leads a cursed life. His life is comparable to that of a dog, a pig, an ass, a crow, a snake and an idiot. And certainly, having wasted his life he will, after death, revert to the above mentioned lower forms of life that eat human-waste, mud and excreta. Even while he is alive, his eats are comparable to the eats of animals and birds cited above.

2. ਆਗੈ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਆਵਤ ਸਭ ਪਰਗਟ ਈਹਾ ਮੋਹਿਓ ਭਰਮ ਅੰਧੇਰੋ ॥੧॥
  ਅਟਕਿਓ ਸੁਤ ਬਨਿਤਾ ਸੰਗ ਮਾਇਆ ਦੇਵਨਹਾਰੁ ਦਾਤਾਰੁ ਬਿਸੇਰੋ ॥  {੧੩੦੨-੩}
While alive, the man remains in the grip of his illusive wisdom, and attachment with his wife, sons, money and what he sees around him. This keeps him away from thinking of God, who is the giver of evry thing. But after death, the truth told by the Holy Hymns (or say, by the Guru) will be self-evident and crystal clear to him.

3. It is quite evident from the foregoing renderings that the holy Hymns of Guru Granth Sahib are for the spiritual advancement of the entire human race and not, (repeat) not for any specific individual or specific community. In case some doubts still exist in any one’s mind about it the following Hymns are cited to clarify them.

4. ਪਰਥਾਇ ਸਾਖੀ ਮਹਾ ਪੁਰਖ ਬੋਲਦੇ ਸਾਝੀ ਸਗਲ ਜਹਾਨੈ ॥{੬੪੭}
Holy Hymns though uttered by The Almighty Guru in some context, have a common application for the whole world. This should erase even the last trace of doubt from any one’s mind regarding the universal applicability of the Holy Hymns of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. This is for the entire humanity.

5. ਮਤ ਕੋ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲੈ ਸੰਸਾਰਿ ॥ ਗੁਰ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਉਤਰਸਿ ਪਾਰਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥  {੮੬੪}
O’ dwellers of the world, do not be under any misconception. No one will achieve salvation without the Almighty Guru.
