Sloka Mahala Nauvan
Author: Swami Swaroopananda
The closing verses of the Guru Granth Sahib composed by Guru Teg Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru through whom the word of God(Dhurki Bani) found expression are extremely poetic and sublime in their philosophical import. These verses urge man to distinguish between the real and the unreal. Rendered in extreme pathos they remind the seeker of the ephemeral nature of this world.
