    There is pollution in the water, and pollution on the land; whatever is born is polluted.
    There is pollution in birth, and more pollution in death; all beings are ruined by pollution. ||1||
    Tell me, O Pandit, O religious scholar: who is clean and pure?
    Meditate on such spiritual wisdom, O my friend. ||1||Pause||
    There is pollution in the eyes, and pollution in speech; there is pollution in the ears as well.
    Standing up and sitting down, one is polluted; one's kitchen is polluted as well. ||2||
    Everyone knows how to be caught, but hardly anyone knows how to escape.
    Says Kabeer, those who meditate on the Lord within their hearts, are not polluted. ||3||41||

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!
