890a.) Bathing / Ritual is useless

Page 890a- Ramkali Mahalla 5- ਤੀਰਥ ਨਾਇ ਨ ਉਤਰਸਿ ਮੈਲੁ ॥ Bathing at sacred shrines of pilgrimage, filth is not washed off. ਕਰਮ ਧਰਮ ਸਭਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਫੈਲੁ ॥ Religious rituals are all just egotistical displays. ਲੋਕ ਪਚਾਰੈ ਗਤਿ ਨਹੀ ਹੋਇ ॥ By pleasing and appeasing people, no one is saved. ਨਾਮ ਬਿਹੂਣੇ ਚਲਸਹਿ ਰੋਇ ॥੨॥ Without the Naam, they shall depart weeping. ||2||
