    How can a person who himself cannot swim teach others the art? How can one whose granary is empty pour out food in charity to others? Acquire the wealth of devotion, fortitude and peace before venturing to advise others on how to acquire them. You may be very enthusiastic to spread the message of the Lord, but the one and the only sure way of doing it is by translating the teachings in to action in your lives. Your thoughts, words and deeds must be saturated with the love and message of the Lord. Then the message of the Lord will spread effectively throughout the world and transform everybody.

    You can't see the light in others until you see it in yourself.
    Once you see it in yourself, there is no one in whom you do not see the light.
    It does not matter if they see it or not. You know it's there.
    And it is the light you address when you speak to them.

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!
