SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB

Know thus O Nanak ! that the True One is all by Himself. That Pure One is all in all Himself. He is neither established nor created by any one. * Pg 2: 67-72

The Name's believer walks not in the worldly ways, ritualistic religious paths. * Pg 3: 68-69

There are more worlds beyond (this) earth, more and more. What power is there that supports their weight from underneath? (Pg 3: 37-42)

Whoever heartily hears, believes and loves God's name, obtains salvation by thoroughly bathing in the shrine within himself. (Pg 4: 31-38)

Make brotherhood with all the highest sect of yogic order and deem the conquering of self (one's real Self) the conquest of the world. * Pg 6: 81-85

They in whose heart God abides die not and nor are they hoodwinked. The saints of various worlds dwell there. They make merry, that True Lord is in their hearts. In the realm of truth abides the Formless Lord. * Pg 8: 43-54

He who created the creation is and shall also be. He shall not depart when the creation shall depart (disappear). God, who fashioned the world, has by various contrivances created the creation of various colors and kinds. Having created the creation, He as it pleases His Honor, beholds His handiwork. * Pg 9

God is Himself the Master and Himself the servant. * Pg 10: 3-4

Thou, O venerable and unique God art uninterruptedly contained in all hearts and in everything. Some hast Thou made donors of charities and some as beggars, all this is Thy wonderful play. Thou Thyself art the Giver and Thyself the Enjoyer. Beside Thee I know of none other. * Pg 11: 12-25

Thou art the river, and all are within Thee. Beside Thee, there is none else. * Pg 11

This human body has come to thy hand. This is thy chance to meet the Lord of the world. Other works are of no avail to thee. Joining the society of saints, contemplate over the Name (God) alone. Make effort for crossing the dreadful world-ocean. In the love of worldliness, the human life is passing in vain. * Pg 12: 25-44.

As seconds, minutes, hours, quarters of a day, lunar days, weekdays, months and several seasons spring from the lone sun, even so - many forms originate from the Creator, O Nanak ! * Pg 12 & 13: 29-44.

Thousands are Thine eyes, yet Thou hast no eye. Thousands are Thine forms, yet Thou hast not even one. Thousands art Thine pure feet, even then Thou hast not one foot. Thousands Thine noses and yet Thou art without a nose. I am bewitched by these plays of Thine. Amongst all there is a light and that light art Thou. By His (God's) light, the light shines within all souls. * Pg 13: 76-100.

He whom the God awakens to drink the essence of His Name comes to know the discourse of the ineffable Lord. Purchase only that commodity for which thou hast come. Through Guru's grace God shall dwell within thy heart. In thy own home (your own heart) thou shalt obtain the Lord's presence in comfort and ease and thou shalt not undergo the round again. * Pg 13: 14-26

I am convinced after consulting my Guru that there is no other place (except God). * Pg 14: 59:62

The Giver has given man intoxicating pill of falsehood. * Pg 15: 14

Why should we in our mind grow oblivious of Him who is the owner of our soul and life? *Page 16: 74-77

Peace accrues when He, who is the owner of the soul and life, abides in man's mind. This world is like a drama staged in a dream, in a moment this play ends. *Pg 18 31-40

By casting His gracious glance, God washes off man's filth (misperception and binding tendencies created by the limited mind, ego and senses) and in his very home (body) he comes to realize the Lord's presence. * Pg 18: 23-28

The blind man has forgotten the Name. * Pg 19: 99

By true service one meets the True Lord and obtains Guru's instructions. That man gets immune of both and death. He neither comes nor goes. * Pg 19: 16-27.

Without the Name, man is knocked about in rebirth. The love of duality has drowned multitudes of men. * Pg 19: 47-51.

Whence they are born, thence do they merge. The True Lord is fully filling every heart. God Himself unites man in His union, and he then sees the True mansion close by (within everything and everyone). * Pg 20: 51-62

My soul and body are Thine and Thou art my Master. Rid me of ego and merge me in Thee. * Pg 20: 73-82

Know that the good perceive the Divine Light and the perverse fools remain in spiritual darkness. He who perceives God's light within every heart comes to understand the essence of Guru's teaching. Do applaud the pious persons who understand the Lord * Pg 20: 87-100

O my soul ! by understanding thy own self (that which is within you) and meditating on God, through the Guru, thou shall be released (from ignorance, suffering and rebirth). * Pg 20: 70-72

Nanak ! the True Guru has united me in the union of that Lord who is ever with me. * Pg 20: 92-94

Cast away thy doubt, meet the Guru (dispeller of darkness/ignorance) and thou shalt know the condition of the inner self.

In the universe, the union of sensitivities and stupefaction, wherever I see, I find God pervading there. * Pg 21: 58-62.

Who forget not God's Name even for a moment and an instant, such persons are rare in this world. * Pg 21: 69-76

When human light blends with the Supreme Light and the union of wisdom is effaced with the universal wisdom, then mortal's killing instinct and egotism depart and suscepticism and sorrow afflict him not. The Guru-ward, within whose mind abides the Lord, him the Guru unites with Lord's union. * Pg 21: 77-92

By erasing self-conceit (ego) man attains peace, and like water merging with water, blends with the Lord. * Pg 22 60-65.

He, who has not met the Divine True Guru (God), bothers and suffers in the terrible life-ocean (material external world of duality). This soul jewel (Atma which is always one with Paramatama) is priceless. In this way it is being lost in exchange for a shell (body). * Pg 22. 77-81.

Lord Himself is the Relisher. Himself the Relish and Himself the Enjoyer of the Relish. He Himself is the Bride and Himself the Couch and the Bridegroom. My Master is dyed with love and is fully pervading everywhere. He Himself is the Fisherman and the fish and He Himself is the water and the net. He Himself is the metal ball of the net and Himself the bait within. * Pg 23: 36-53.

He who recognizes his own self (the divine substance of which he has been created) comprehends Him. * Pg 25: 77-80.

Thou art the river, All-knowing and All-seeing. How can I, a fish find thy limit? Wherever I look, there Thou art. Getting out of Thee I burst and die. * Pg 25: 87-100.

I know not the fisherman, nor do I know the net. When pain comes, then, do I call on Thee. Thou art everywhere and in everything, I thought Thee distant. Whatever I do, that is in Thine presence. Thou see-est my actions, yet I deny. I have not performed Thy service, nor have I pondered on Thy Name. Whatever Thou givest me, that I eat. There is no other door (supreme reality), to which other door should I go? Nanak makes one supplication, my soul and body are all at Thy disposal. * Pg 25: 2-32.

The Guru-wards get mentally detached from the world, and their soul remains blended with God (the true Self of all). I am a sacrifice unto those who enjoy the taste of God's name. * Pg 26: 23-28

He whom God Himself unites meets Him and remains blended with Him. * Pg 27: 27-32.

The One Lord is dwelling amongst all. He, the Unique One is pervading everywhere. He, to whom God Himself becomes Merciful, gets absorbed in His Name, by Guru's grace. * Pg 27: 37-46.

By coming in contact with the invaluable personality of Guru, purer manifestation of one's real Self which is Paramatama in human or spirit form), the mortal becomes invaluable himself and his light is absorbed in the Supreme Light. * Pg 27: 77-80.

Ye saints, see with the searching glance that God abides close by and is fully pervading everywhere. * Pg 27: 45-51.


Who has the light of God's Name within his mind, he becomes permanent forever and ever. * Pg 28: 87-90.

The words of dualism makes man miserable. The man within whose heart is discrimination and reflection, by intermingling he intermingles not (with apostates). * Pg 28: 37 42.

O' Brother, being engrossed in duality, the world is in misery. By seeking sanctuary of the Guru, and by night and day remembering the Name, obtain peace. * Pg 29: 96-100.

They who are engrossed in the short lived play, are of avail neither in this world nor in the next one. * Pg 29: 33-35.

Nanak, God is obtained through the Guru. He Himself understands His own self. * Pg 30: 8-9.

Nanak, God and the Guru have two forms but they have the same One Light. It is by the word that mortal attains to the union with God. * Pg 30: 52-55.

Within the abides God. Do thou attain to peace by serving the Guru. * Pg 33: 25-28.

The True One merges in him in Himself, who egotism and and egoism stand eliminated. * Pg 35: 54-56.

This world is asleep in an illusion and in sleep the night (life) passes away. Some He delivers of His own will and unites with Himself. He Himself abides within man's mind and drives off love of mammon. He Himself bestows honor and causes Himself to be understood through the Guru. The Lord alone is the giver for all. He corrects those in error. He Himself has misled some and has attached them to duality. Under Guru's instruction God is attained and man's soul (Atma) merges with the Supreme Soul (Paramatama). * Pg 36.

Everything the Lord Himself is. There is no second. When that Lord Himself causes us to speak, we speak just as He wants us to speak. * Pg 39: 15: 24.

I am an idiotic fool for I say: "I have done this and I will do that." I have forgotten the real Doer and am in love with duality. * Pg 39.

Within is the pain of ignorance and superstition. Between man and the Lord lies the separating screen (created by the limited mind, ego, senses and desires). * Pg 40: 45:52.

God Himself is the Sat Guru, Himself the Lord and Himself unites man in His union. Making man follow the Great True Guru (purer manifestation of the spirit of God with or without form), mercifully blends him with Himself. In this world, the Lord Himself is the life of the entire universe. Like water merging with water, O' Nanak, God's slave gets absorbed in God. * Pg 41: 35-50.

Nanak is imbued with love of God, whose light is pervading the entire universe. * Pg 42: 19-22.

Everything is in the power of the Master. He Himself is the Doer of deeds. * Pg 43: 84-87.

He alone performs the service of the True Guru, who is rid of the affliction of ego. * Pg 45: 24-28.

The One Lord is within thy home (body) and the One without. He Himself is found within all places. * Pg 45: 67-71.

Beside God, there is no other second. On His Name alone, do thou meditate. * Pg 46: 84-87.

By separating, He separates not and is contained amongst all. * Pg 46: 46-49

The Lord of the world is the comrade of those who are so pre-destined. * Pg 47: 22-26.

Pervading God ever sees, hears and is just near. He resides in every heart. * Pg 47: 35-40.

The perverse and impious beast understands not Him who Created Him. Who is pervading within and without; Him he deems to be distant. * Pg 47: 85-97.

The Lord Himself does and causes others to do. Everything is in His hands. He Himself slays and revives. Within and without, He is with the mortal. * Pg 48: 79-88.

From whom dost thou hide thine evil deeds, since the ever present Lord is beholding thee? My fully pervading Lord is pervading in all places. * Pg 48: 40-50.

I have seen with me the Lord for seeking whom I assumed this body. The Lord who filleth the water, earth and space beholdeth everyone with His grace. * Pg 48: 86-97.

The Guru is the Donor, the Guru is the Omnipotent Being and the Guru is contained amongst all. The Guru is the Supreme Lord and the Transcendent Master. The Guru saves the drowning ones. * Pg 49: 50-56.

The Unique Lord, who did create the Universe is the Designer of chances. * Pg 51: 96-100.

Whatever extension of the world that is visible, that all is Thou O' Lord. * Pg 51: 78-81.

The entire world is engrossed in evil deeds and virtuous deeds. Above both is the saint of God. Hardly anyone understands this. * Pg 51: 95-100.

The Guru is Omnipotent and the Guru is Infinite. It is through the greatest good luck that His view is had. Imperceptible and Immaculate is the Guru. None else is as great as the Guru. The Guru is the Creator and the Guru is the Doer. It is through the Guru that true glory is obtained. Nothing is beyond the jurisdiction of the Guru. Whatever the Guru desires, that comes to pass. The Guru is the place of pilgrimage, Guru is the Elysian Tree, and the Guru is the fulfiller of desire. Guru, the Giver, grants God's Name wherewith the entire world is saved. The Guru is potent to do everything and the Guru Himself is the formless Lord. The Guru is high, unfathomable and limitless. * Pg 52

The Guru and God are One and the Divine Guru is contained amongst all. They who are pre-destined reflect over the Lord's Name. * Pg 53: 88-95

Thou Thyself art the pure pearl and Thyself the devotee and intercessor. By the Word of the Guru, the Invisible One is praised and seen in every heart. Thou Thyself art the ocean ad the ship and Thyself this shore and the yonder one.* Pg 54: 9-21.

The Creator alone is seen to be Eternal. All others continue coming and going. Thou, O' Lord ! art by Thyself Pure, Thou hast tied down and engaged others in secular pursuits. * Pg 54: 32-43.

By Lord's Fiat all are created and by His Fiat they perform various functions. Under His command they are in the power of Death and under His command they are absorbed in the True God. Nanak, whatever please Him, that comes to pass. Nothing is in the power of these creatures. * Pg 55: 40-54.

They who recognize their own self (Paramatama), find the Lord's Mansion in the good place of their home heart. Imbued with the True Name, the True One is obtained. * Pg 56: 60-84.

Nanak, the One Lord is pervading everywhere. There is no second whatsoever. * Pg 57: 43-46.

The mortal comes to know all the hidden and the apparent, if he keeps his mind centered at One Place. If man finds such a True Guru, then he easily causes him to meet the Lord. * Pg 57: 3-13.

Everyone craves for happiness and none ask for misery. Immense anguish comes in the wake of pleasures, but the self-willed understand it not. * Pg 57: 32-39.

By recognizing his own self, man abides in his own home and his ego and desire depart. Nanak, blotless and exonerated are they. Who are imbued with the Name of God. * Pg 57: 86-96.

As long as truth enters not man's mind, till then he gains not Lord's presence. * Pg 58: 58-63.

Within our minds, why should we forget Him who is the mainstay of all the beings? * Pg 58: 97-100.

Without the Guru, one's own self cannot be known. By merely saying and hearing, what can be achieved? * Pg 58: 22-27

The fearful ocean of the world is arduous and dreadful, It has neither a shore nor the yonder end. It has no boat, no raft, no pole and no boatman. The True Guru is the only ship on the fearful sea whose merciful glance takes men across * Pg 59: 23-36.

Man comes (is born), goes (dies) and is goaded into existences. He acts in accordance with his past actions. How can the pre-natal writ be obliterated, when the writ is written under the Lord's will? * Pg 59: 75-86.

O' my mind ! enshrine such love for God as the fish has for water. The more the water, the more the happiness and the greater the peace of mind, body and frame (the fish feels). Without water she (the fish) cannot live for an instant. The Lord knows the suffering of her mind. * Pg 60: 39-53.

Understanding comes not to the perverse person. Unto the pious person the Lord is ever close at hand. The self-willed make calculations. But it is only what the Creator does that comes to pass. * Pg 60.

He who recognizes God within himself and is pierced through with his name is satisfied. When man understands his own self through the Guru, what more is left for him to do or to get done? Why speak of uniting with the Lord those who are already in union with Him. They are satisfied by receiving His Name. * Pg 60: 61-78.

By continually reading books men commit mistakes and by wearing religious garbs, they take great pride. What does it avail to man to bathe at a place of pilgrimage, when the filth of self-conceit is within his mind. Who except the Guru can explain that God, the King and Emperor abides within man's mind. By reflecting over the reality through the Guru, the wealth of Lord's love is attained to. *Pg 61: 50-72.

Whatever is seen, that shall depart. Have not affection for the false shows. * Pg 61: 63-68.

The perverse person deems the daughters, sons and relatives to be his own. His is pleased on beholding his wife. But they bring weal couple with woe. The pious persons are imbued with God's Name and day and night they enjoy the Lord's elixir. The mind of the unstable and wavering infidel wanders in quest of transitory wealth. Men ruin themselves by their search without while the Thing is in the sacred place of their home. The pious receive it in their lap, whilst the perverse miss it through ego. O' vicious mammon worshipper ! Recognize thy own origin. * Pg 63.

As a man goes astray in dream at night, till his sleep lasts, so does go amiss the mortal within whose heart is ego and love of duality and who is in the grip of the mammon-serpent (Maya). Through Guru's instruction, does mortal realize and see that this world is but a dream. * Pg 63: 50-69.

I am terrified on beholding the terrible mountain in my father's home (this world). High and difficult to ascend the mountain. No ladder is there which will reach it. Through the Guru, I have recognized the Mountain within me. The Guru has united me with Him and I am saved. * Pg 63.

They who are so preordained by God, the Creator, by Guru's instruction get absorbed in the Name. * Pg 65: 12-18.

Attachment of mammon (duality) is the creation of my Master, and He Himself misleads man into an illusion. * Pg 67: 69-75.

Through truth, man merges in his real Self in his home and death's myrmidon can devour him not. Nam Dev the calico-printer and Kabir the weaver obtained salvation from the perfect Guru. By recognizing His Name, they became the knowers of God and lost their ego and caste. Demigods and men sing their hymns. None can erase them O' Brother. Prahlad the demon's son read not of religious rites and austerities, for he knew not duality. On meeting the True Guru, he became pure and uttered God's name night and day. He read only of One God, realized the One Name and knew no other second. * Pg 67: 12-57.

In Maya (worldly attachment) mental equilibrium springs not. The worldly attachment produces duality. The wayward perform religious rites but they are burnt down by self-conceitedness. Their birth and death cease not, they come and go again and again. * Pg 68.

In the three dispositions Equipoise is not obtained. The three modes lead astray the mortal in doubt. What do reading, studying and talking avail a man if he misses the very Origin? In the fourth state there is Spiritual Bliss and the Guruwards obtain it in their sheet. * Pg 68: 17-34.

The world has gone astray in doubt. Thou Thyself, O' Lord ! hast misled it. * Pg 72: 55-60.

Thou Thyself hast created the universe and setting afoot the play of duality hast exhibited it. The Truest of the true is pervading everywhere. He instructs him whom He is pleased with. * Pg 73: 21-31.

I have become the Master of the village (body), and I have taken prisoner it's five rivals (senses). I have entered Thine sanctuary O' Lord ! * Pg 73: 34-38.

God Himself causes mortal to do evil deeds and good ones. In the power of this being lies nothing. * Pg 77: 8-12.

The body is the field of action in this age. Whatever one sows, that he eats (reaps). * Pg 78: 40-47.

Profitable are the entire lives of those who by Guru's teaching have conquered their minds by throwing the dice of the Name. * Pg 78: 38-44.

With thy sight behold in every heart, the Lord of the world-forest who is fully pervading the ocean and land. Nanak gives thee a counsel, O' my dear soul ! burn thy scepticism in the society of saints. O' dear mind ! my friend, without God all the ostentation is false. O' dear mind ! my friend, the world is an ocean of poison. * Pg 79: 48-66.

Having created the universe, that Lord abides there-in. * Pg 83: 62-65.

The worth of Him who is in the universe cannot be known. Even if one were to know the value he cannot describe it then. People think of religious laws and regulations. But without understanding God, how can they swim across (the world of duality)? Make faith thy bowing and let the conquest of mind be thy aim of life. In whatever direction I see, I find God present in that direction. * Pg 84: 71-94.

Indulging in excessive ego, the entire world has perished. The worldly wealth goes not with anyone. * Pg 84: 22-27.

Through attachment to duality, the foolish, blind and stupid persons putrefy to death. They fall as worms unto odure and perish over and over again there-in. * Pg 85: 19-31.

Thou Thyself has created the entire creation and reachest sustenance to it. Some eat by practising deceit and fraud, and from their mouth drop falsehood and untruth. Thou hast put them to that task and they do that work which pleaseth Thy ownself. To some Thou hast explained truthfulness, and to them Thou hast given inexhaustible treasures there-of. Profitable is the advent of those who eat by remembering God. They who remember not the Lord stretch out their hand to beg. * Pg 85: 42-80.

Through love of worldly valuables, the foolish mind has forgotten God's Name, and he shall be awarded punishment. He never thinks of Him who gave him the soul and body and who provides all with sustenance. The noose of death shall not be cut from his neck and he shall continue to come and go over and over again. The blind self-willed man understands nothing and practices what is predestined for him. * Pg 85.

By Guru's instruction, one recognizes his own self, and the light of the Lord's Name comes into him. The true man practices truth. The greatness is with the great Lord. He glorifies and supplicates the Lord to whom belong his soul, body and everything. * Pg 86: 42-55.

The foolish and ignorant man recognizes not the Creator who is within his self. Because of the love of duality, he instructs the world and himself understands not Divine Knowledge. He loses his life in vain and dies and is born again and again. * Pg 86: 6-18.

Nanak, he is the brave warrior who has subdued his vicious inner ego. * Pg 86: 63-68.

Attached to ego and duality, man has forgotten the Master. * Pg 86: 92-96.

Nanak, he whom God unites with Himself separates not from Him and is easily absorbed in Him. He is the man of God's sect who knows the Auspicious Master and by Guru's grace recognizes his own self. He restrains his wandering mind, and brings the one God in his heart-home. He remains dead whilst alive and repeats the Name of God. Sublime is such a devotee. He is absorbed in the True Lord O' Nanak. * Pg 88

2:67 - Know thus O Nanak, that the True One is all by Himself. That Pure One is all in all Himself. He is neither established nor created by anyone.

6:81 - Make brotherhood with all the highest sect of yogic order, and deem conquering of self the conquest of the world.

11:2 - Thou O' venerable and unique Lord God art uninterrruptedly contained in all the hearts and in everything. Some are the givers, and some the mumpers. All these are thy wondrous frolics. Thou thyself art the Giver,and Thyself the Enjoyer. Beside Thee, I know of none other.

11:51 - Thou art the river and all are in Thee. Beside Thee, there is none else.

12:29 - As seconds, minutes, hours, quarters of a day, lunardays, weekdays, months and several seasons spring from the lone sun. So many forms originate from the Creator, O Nanak!

13:75 - Thousands are Thine eyes, yet Thou hast no eye. Thousands are Thine forms, yet Thou hast not even one. Thousands are Thine pure feet, even then Thou has not one foot. Thousands are Thine noses and yet Thou art without a nose. I am bewitched by these plays of thine. Amongst all there is light, and that light art Thou.

13:99 - By his light, the light shines within ALL souls. By the Guru's teaching, the divine light becomes manifest. (Guru is physical or non- physical and means anything or anyone that dispels the darkness of ignorance, all Gurus although appearing different are all really the One).

13:21 - In thy own home (body), thou shalt obtain the Lord's presence in comfort and ease, and thou shalt not undergo the round again.

16:27 - If man becomes the recipient of God's grace, then alone does he obtain such honors and not by idle words.

19:47 - Without the Name, man is knocked about in transmigration. The love of duality has drowned multitudes of men.

20:51 - Whence they are born, thence do they merge. The True Lord is fully filling every heart. God himself unites man in his union, and he then sees the True mansion close by.

20:92 - He, who perceives God's light within every heart, comes to understand the essence of Guru's teachng.

21:52 - In the universe, the union of sensitiveness and stupefaction, wherever I see, I find God pervading there.

22:60 - By erasing self-conceit, man attains peace, and like water merging with water, blends with the Lord.

23:36 - Lord Himself is the Relisher, Himself the Relish, and Himself the enjoyer. He himself is the Bride and Himself the Couch and Bridegroom. My Master is dyed with love and is fully pervading everywhere. He himself is the fisherman, and the fish and Himself the water and the net. He Himself is the metal ball of the net and Himself the bait within.

27:38 - The One Lord is dwelling amongst all. He the Unique One is pervading everywhere. He to whom God Himself becomes merciful, gets absorbed in His Name by the Guru's grace.

30:62 - Nanak, God and the Guru have two forms but they have the same one Light. It is by the Word that mortal attains to the union with God.

33:25 - Within thee abides God. Do thou attain to peace by serving the Guru.

35:57 - The True One merges him in Himself, in whom egotism and egoism stand eliminated.

35:37 - Sri Rag, Third Guru - Without the Name, everyone is miserable and is ruined by duality.

36:15 - 'Everything the Lord Himself is. There is no second. When that Lord Himself causes us to speak, we speak just as He wants us to speak.'

39:87 - 'I am an idiotic fool, for I say "I have done this and I will do that." I have forgotten the real Doer, and am in love with duality.'

45:67 - 'The One Lord is within thy home (body) and the One without. He Himself is found within all places.'

48:80 - 'The Lord Himself does and causes others to do. Everything is in His hands. He Himself slays and revives. Within and without, He is with the mortal.'

36:29 - 'The soul and body (waves) all belong to Him (the divine Ocean) and there is no support except that of Him. If by Guru's grace man understand's this, it is then that he attains to the door of salvation.'

36:100 - 'This world is asleep in an illusion and in sleep the night (life) passes away. Some He delivers of His own will, and unites with Himself. He Himself abides within man's mind and drives off love of mammon. He Himself bestows honor and causes Himself to be understood through the Guru. The Lord alone is the Giver for all. He corrects those in error. He Himself has misled some and has attached them to duality. Under Guru's instruction God is attained and man's soul merges with the Supreme Soul.'

5:34 - 'He Himself knows His Own Self. The praisers praise the Lord, but they obtain not this much understanding that they may know His geatness, as the steams and the rivers falling into the ocean understand not it's extent.'
