    Some do not think of death; they entertain great hopes.
    They die, and are re-born, and die, over and over again. They are of no use at all!
    In their conscious minds, they call themselves good.
    The King of the Angels of Death hunts down those self-willed manmukhs, over and over again.
    The manmukhs are false to their own selves; they feel no gratitude for what they have been given.
    Those who merely perform rituals of worship are not pleasing to their Lord and Master.
    Those who attain the True Lord and chant His Name are pleasing to the Lord.
    They worship the Lord and bow at His Throne

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!
