Justice within society

Siri Guru Granth Sahib

“There is a city called City-of-no-Sorrows. There is no suffering or anxiety there. There are no troubles or taxes on commodities there. There is no fear, blemish or downfall there. My friends, I have found myself a wonderful hometown.  There is lasting peace and safety there, O Siblings of Destiny. God's Kingdom is steady, stable and eternal. There all are equal, none second or third. That city is populous and eternally famous. Those who live in it are satisfied and contented. They stroll about freely, just as they please. They know the Mansion of the Lord's Presence, and no one blocks their way. Says Ravi Daas, the emancipated shoe-maker: whoever is a citizen of this City of no Sorrows, is a friend of mine.”
