    Dear Khalsa Ji,
    Today I share with you my understanding of the Shalok that comes just before the 4th Ashtapadee of Sukhmani Sahib.
    1. inrgunIAwr ieAwinAw so pRBu sdw smwil ] nirgunee-aar i-aani-aa so parabh sadaa samaal.
    You, without any virtue and full of ignorance dwell upon ‘The Sat’.
    2. ijin kIAw iqsu cIiq rKu nwnk inbhI nwil ]1] jin kee-aa tis cheet rakh naanak nibhee naal. ||1||
    Keep in your remembrance the ‘One’ who created you, O’Nanak that is the way to get along.

    My Understanding:
    Guru Sahib in these two sentences tells that each one of the Sikh should bear in mind ‘The Sat’ who has created us. In the Ashtapadee that follows Guru Sahib elaborate on this essential aspect of spiritual living.
    With this I close this post

    "tis cheet rakh" - "Remember him always" seems more closer than "bear in mind"

    Dear Arvind Ji,

    I agree with you. In fact I have used both, 'remembrance' in meaning and 'bear in mind' in My understanding.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
