|Wisdom Divine (continued ...)|
|from the chapter - Embodiment of All Divine Virtues and Excellencies|
In His characteristic simplicity, Sri Guru Nanak Sahib advises the Raja how to remain uncontaminated in the midst of all worldly contamination, how to remain detached in the midst of all worldly attachments, and how to remain totally free in the midst of all worldly bondages. Having surrendered the 'I'ness and 'My'ness at the lotus feet of Satguru, the Satguru is the Sole doer, the Karta. All worries and burdens connected with the Self are passed on to the holy feet of Satguru. Consequently one travels lightly and without any burden through the journey of life. One belongs to the supreme care taker. What a singular relief for a spiritual aspirant?
Having rid the Raja of his 'I' ego, Sri Guru Nanak Sahib bestowed freedom
on him from all bonds which can bind, which cause the continuity of the
cycle of transmigration.
As we drop at the holy feet of the Satguru in all our humility and become his, all our previous accounts held by Dharam Raj are torn, all the previous sins wiped out. The heart stands purified and illumined with the Grace of the Satguru, and a totally fresh and new holy and pure chapter of life starts thereafter. With face turned towards the source of all lights, all darkness of previous lives is left behind like non-existent shadow.
The knowledge of false identification of the 'I' ego with name, form (body), possessions and 'I'ego's false sense of independent identity and existence of the self dawned on the deserving Raja.
With 'I' the doer of all Karmas, surrendered at the holy feet of Satguru, it ('I') becomes non-existent and unfettered by any Karmas. One is liberated. 'I' as the doer is the sole binder and when 'I' is non-existent, there is no one to bear the fruits of any past or present Karmas. One is free.
Jivanmukta has risen far above the consciousness of doership, 'Ek Onkar
Satnam Kartapurkh' for him the Lord is the Sole Doer, the Sole Karta.
His 'I'ego is non-existent and hence his total non-involvement in any
Karma. He is completely free. He has attained mukti in his very life.
He is Jivanmukt.
