All creations are yours, ‘O’ Lord!
And you are the only master of all. Why are they visited, then, with your wrath ?In spite of your having wrath on them, they are still yours, and you are theirs, ‘O’ Lord!
2. Guru Amar Das Ji, the third Guru appeals to God; regarding the sufferings of the humanity in the worldly affairs; :
Jagat Jalandha rakh leya aapni kirpa dhar, jit duarah urbrae tita leho ubar

Sabhe Jiy sambhal apni mehar kar, ann pani much upaye dukh dalad bhan tar.
