    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.

    Thanks! Very inspiring!
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!
