What Do You Leave With?

We sometimes say lightly that man comes empty handed and leaves empty handed.
Is it true? Then what is our purpose of life on this Earth.

Guru says:

ਚੰਗਿਆਈਆ ਬੁਰਿਆਈਆ ਵਾਚੇ ਧਰਮੁ ਹਦੂਰਿ ॥
Good deeds and bad deeds-the record is read out in the Presence of the Lord of Dharma.

 

ਕਰਮੀ ਆਪੋ ਆਪਣੀ ਕੇ ਨੇੜੈ ਕੇ ਦੂਰਿ ॥
According to their own actions, some are drawn closer, and some are driven farther away.

 

ਜਿਨੀ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਇਆ ਗਏ ਮਸਕਤਿ ਘਾਲਿ ॥
Those who have meditated on the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and departed after having worked by the sweat of their brow

 

ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਮੁਖ ਉਜਲੇ ਕੇਤੀ ਛੁਟੀ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥
O Nanak, their faces are radiant in the Court of the Lord, and many are saved along with them! ||1||
Thus we leave with our good deeds and our bad deeds. And all of them, even the ones we have forgotten!
