Gateway to Sikhism

Greed

1. Absorbed in false greed,
You have forgotten that death is the end;
Even now no harm will be done to you,
If you sing the glory of the Lord.
GURU IC, TILANG RAG

2. Unhappy is he,
Who lives under the influence of greed,
luxury, anger and pride.
GURU III, GUJRI RAG

3. Nanak, you may ask the wise people:
Who could ever attain Him with lust and greed?
GURU V, BIHAGARA RAG

4. Man is lost in greed,
And does not know his own interest.
O my greedy mind,
You are ever lost in greed.
He who is lost in greed for worldly things,
Is neither honoured in this world nor in the next.
He who is full of greed for wealth of someone who is dead,
Has wasted his valuable life.
Though the light in one's eyes has dimmed.
Yet one craves for a long life.
Lord, the surge of greed is very fierce,
And this boat of mine is about to sink.
NAMDEVJI BASANT RAG

4. The surging greed is like the madness of a dog,
This madness has vitiated all.
GURU V, NATNARAYAN RAG

5. What is that love which is based on greed?
When there is greed, the love is false.
FARIDJI, SHALOKAS

6. My mind is foolish,
It is lured away by greed.
GURU I, SRI RAG

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
