    Ingredients of a Sikh

    One part saint, one part soldier,
    One part that's always learning
    As one grows older.

    One part service, one part sword,
    One part that's ever-evolving
    On life's drawing-board.

    One part spiritual, one part political,
    One part that aims to expose
    All that's hypocritical.

    One part fearless, one part unthreatening,
    One part that continues to hear
    When the din is deafening.

    One part meditative, one part martial,
    One part that's eyes remain open
    Yet is completely impartial.

    One part kettle, one part kirpan,
    One part that keeps collecting knowledge
    As the clock ticks on.

    One part kirtan, one part prayer,
    One part that sheds light on it all
    So the whole sangat can share.

    One part devotion, one part action,
    One part that speaks the truth
    Regardless of sanction.

    One part candle, one part flame,
    One part literal translation
    Of our famed "Sikh" name.

    One part Nanak, nine parts thereafter,
    Blessed by Guru Granth Sahib,
    Our eternal chapter.
