    Devotion: The willingness to Love and Worship God.

    Single minded devotion to God is needed, we need to cultivate unconditional love that will bind us with the lotus feet of Lord God Waheguru.

    English Translation(source:SikhiToTheMax):
    Shalok, Third Mehl:
    Raising the embankments of the mind's field, I gaze at the heavenly mansion.
    When devotion comes to the mind of the soul-bride, she is visited by the friendly guest.
    O clouds, if you are going to rain, then go ahead and rain; why rain after the season has passed?
    Nanak is a sacrifice to those Gurmukhs who obtain the Lord in their minds. ||1||


    Punjabi Translation(source:GuruGranthDarpan):

    ਬੱਦਲ ਵੇਖ ਕੇ (ਜੱਟ) ਪੈਲੀ ਵਿਚ ਵੱਟਾਂ ਉੱਚੀਆਂ ਕਰ ਦੇਂਦਾ ਹੈ (ਤੇ ਵਰਖਾ ਦਾ ਪਾਣੀ ਉਸ ਪੈਲੀ ਵਿਚ ਆ ਖਲੋਂਦਾ ਹੈ), (ਤਿਵੇਂ ਹੀ, ਜਿਸ ਜੀਵ-) ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਦੇ ਹਿਰਦੇ ਵਿਚ ਭਗਤੀ (ਦਾ ਉਛਾਲਾ) ਆਉਂਦਾ ਹੈ ਉਥੇ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਪ੍ਰਾਹੁਣਾ ਬਣ ਕੇ (ਭਾਵ, ਰਹਿਣ ਲਈ) ਆਉਂਦਾ ਹੈ।
    ਹੇ ਮੇਘ! (ਹੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ!) ਜੇ (ਨਾਮ ਦੀ) ਵਰਖਾ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ ਤਾਂ ਵਰਖਾ (ਹੁਣ) ਕਰ, (ਮੇਰੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿਹਾ ਜਾਣ ਤੇ) ਫੇਰ ਕਾਹਦੇ ਲਈ ਵਰਖਾ ਕਰੇਂਗਾ?
    ਹੇ ਨਾਨਕ! ਮੈਂ ਸਦਕੇ ਹਾਂ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਰਾਹੀਂ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਨੂੰ ਹਿਰਦੇ ਵਿਚ ਲੱਭ ਲਿਆ ਹੈ।੧।

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!
