    Listening to the teachings of the Guru, the Sikh becomes wise internally though apparently he looks a simpleton.
    He with full care keeps his consciousness attuned to the Word and listens to nothing except the words of Guru.
    He beholds the true Guru and without the company of the saints feels himself blind and deaf.
    The Guru's word he receives is Vahiguru, the wondrous Lord, and remains silently immersed in delight.
    He bows on the feet and becoming (humble) like dust goes on quaffing the nectar of the feet (of the Lord).
    He remains involved like black bee in the lotus feet (of the Guru) and thus living in this world ocean remains unsmeared (by its water and dust).
    His is life of a liberated one during the life on earth i.e. he is a jivanmukt'.

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!
