In an instant, we can be taken out of our mortal thought processes. The world can consume us instantly, and we may continue to be unaware and filled with our ego’s desires until the very last moment.

ਖਾਕ ਨੂਰ ਕਰਦੰ ਆਲਮ ਦੁਨੀਆਇ ॥khāk nūr kardaṅ ālam dunīāi.Infused light into the dust, and created the world, the universe.خاک نور کردن عالم دنایی ||
     Guru Arjan Sahib in Rag Tilang | Guru Granth Sahib 723

In an instant, we can be taken out of our mortal thought processes. The world can consume us instantly, and we may continue to be unaware and filled with our ego’s desires until the very last moment. Researcher Asha Marie Kaur explores death in Gurbani through the use of the Persian language in Sabad.

This is a continuation of the Persian Voice in the Guru Granth Sahib Series with Asha Marie Kaur.
