    Neither body, nor house, nor love last forever. You are intoxicated with Maya; how long will you be proud of them?
    Neither crown, nor canopy, nor servants last forever. You do not consider in your heart that your life is passing away.
    Neither chariots, nor horses, nor elephants or royal thrones shall last forever. In an instant, you will have to leave them, and depart naked.
    Neither warrior, nor hero, nor king or ruler last forever; see this with your eyes.
    Neither fortress, nor shelter, nor treasure will save you; doing evil deeds, you shall depart empty-handed.
    Friends, children, spouses and friends - none of them last forever; they change like the shade of a tree.
    God is the Perfect Primal Being, Merciful to the meek; each and every instant, meditate in remembrance on Him, the Inaccessible and Infinite.
    O Great Lord and Master, servant Nanak seeks Your Sanctuary; please shower him with Your Mercy, and carry him across. ||5||

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!
