Beliefs

Sikhs believe that the more one says about Kartar, the more there is left to say. Fools talk and talk, or write and write. Those who truly seek to know Kartar, try to enact his truth in their lives. Guru Nanak writes:

As great as You are, all goodness flows from You
As true as You are, all is true, and nothing is false
Speaking, beholding, talking, walking, living and dying we go
By His command, He creates, the True One keeps us
(GG 145).
