4. The egg of superstition has burst: my mind is Illumined, And the fetters of (my mind’s) feet are sundered: lo, I’m Emancipated by the Guru. Ceased now have coming and going. And the frying Pan (of the heart) has cooled with the Guru-given cooling Elixir of the Name. (Maru M. 5)
5. He, who is affected neither by joy nor sorrow and looks upon friend and foe as one; And praise to him I as is dispraise, and gold as good as iron. He, saith Nanak, is emancipated: he alone is the released one. (Shlokas of M. 9)
6. Wheresoever He keeps us, is the house of Emancipation, And whatever He makes us utter, that, indeed is His blessed Name. (2)

Nanak: Such a one is emancipated even while alive. (Gauri Sukhmani M. 5)
