The Last Thoughts Before Death...

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh


Guru Pyaree'o, what determines our last thoughts before death?


Could we lead lives with our mind focus and attatched to wealth, our family or possessions then at the last moment before death could we remember Waheguru, Dear God?


Whatever we think of day and night, is what we will think of when we feel pain.

Whatever our mind focuses its attention on for the majority of the time, is what we will remember today, tomorrow and the day after.

Whatever we remember, recite and call upon all our life is what we will remember, recite and call upon on the last seconds of our life.


Hence Guru Jee instructs us:
"Ootat Betat Sovat Jaagat, Eho Man Tudhai Chitaarai... Standing, sitting, sleeping and waking up, may my mind remain attatched and remember You (O Waheguru)" (Ang 820, SGGS)
