    They wear loin cloths, three and a half yards long, and triple-wound sacred threads.
    They have rosaries around their necks, and they carry glittering jugs in their hands.
    They are not called Saints of the Lord - they are thugs of Benares. ||1||
    Such 'saints' are not pleasing to me;
    they eat the trees along with the branches. ||1||Pause||
    They wash their pots and pans before putting them on the stove, and they wash the wood before lighting it.
    They dig up the earth and make two fireplaces, but they eat the whole person! ||2||
    Those sinners continually wander in evil deeds, while they call themselves touch-nothing saints.
    They wander around forever and ever in their self-conceit, and all their families are drowned. ||3||
    He is attached to that, to which the Lord has attached him, and he acts accordingly.
    Says Kabeer, one who meets the True Guru, is not reincarnated again. ||4||2||

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!
