The Name is an easy Path
As has already been said the soul reaches its original home in the spiritual regions with the aid of the Shabd. Without the Shabd it is blind. Similarly the Name also serves as a guide and support for the soul. By Its aid the soul can attain the tranquil state. (See Chapter: How real Repetition and Austerities are practised and their fruit).
There is a prayer for its attainment in the Adi Granth.
Oh Lord, have Mercy on Nanak; Your Name is dear to him. It is like a stick to the blind.
Belawal M5, 847-7
I am blind and need a support; Your Name is my guide. I am poor and helpless; Your Name sustains me.
Namdev, Tilang 727-12
