    narak surag fir fir avathaar ||
    anik jathan kar aatham nehee dhravai ||
    har dharageh kahu kaisae gavai ||
    aapas ko jo bhalaa kehaavai ||

    If someone does millions of good deeds, while acting in ego,
    he shall incur only trouble; all this is in vain.
    If someone performs great penance, while acting in selfishness and conceit,
    he shall be reincarnated into heaven and hell, over and over again.
    He makes all sorts of efforts, but his soul is still not softened
    how can he go to the Court of the Lord?
    One who calls himself good
    goodness shall not draw near him.
    One whose mind is the dust of all
    - says Nanak, his reputation is spotlessly pure. ||3||

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!
