No one is your support except the All-Pervasive.Who are mother, father, children and wife?Who is whose sibling? 1. Reflect.

No one is your support except the All-Pervasive.
Who are mother, father, children and wife?
Who is whose sibling? 1. Reflect.
Wealth, land and all possessions which you consider your own.
When body leaves nothing goes with it. Why be attached to them? 1.
Compassionate to meek, forever the destroyer,
you haven’t developed inclination towards that One.
Says Nanak: Entire world is transitory like a night-dream. 2
     Guru Teghbahadur Sahib in Rag Sarang | Guru Granth Sahib 1231

ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ਰਾਗੁ ਸਾਰੰਗ ਮਹਲਾ ੯ ॥ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਤੇਰੋ ਕੋ ਨ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ਕਾਂ ਕੀ ਮਾਤ ਪਿਤਾ ਸੁਤ ਬਨਿਤਾ ਕੋ ਕਾਹੂ ਕੋ ਭਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ਧਨੁ ਧਰਨੀ ਅਰੁ ਸੰਪਤਿ ਸਗਰੀ ਜੋ ਮਾਨਿਓ ਅਪਨਾਈ ॥ਤਨ ਛੂਟੈ ਕਛੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਨ ਚਾਲੈ ਕਹਾ ਤਾਹਿ ਲਪਟਾਈ ॥੧॥ਦੀਨ ਦਇਆਲ ਸਦਾ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨ ਤਾ ਸਿਉ ਰੁਚਿ ਨ ਬਢਾਈ ॥ਨਾਨਕ ਕਹਤ ਜਗਤ ਸਭ ਮਿਥਿਆ ਜਿਉ ਸੁਪਨਾ ਰੈਨਾਈ ॥੨॥
