    First Mehl:
    The more one write and reads,
    the more one burns.
    The more one wanders at sacred shrines of pilgrimage,
    the more one talks uselessly.
    The more one wears religious robes, the more pain he causes his body.
    O my soul, you must endure the consequences of your own actions.
    One who does not eat the corn, misses out on the taste.
    One obtains great pain, in the love of duality.
    One who does not wear any clothes,
    suffers night and day.
    Through silence, he is ruined.
    How can the sleeping one be awakened without the Guru?
    One who goes barefoot
    suffers by his own actions.
    One who eats filth and throws ashes on his head
    the blind fool loses his honor.
    Without the Name, nothing is of any use.
    One who lives in the wilderness, in cemetaries and cremation grounds
    - that blind man does not know the Lord; he regrets and repents in the end.
    One who meets the True Guru finds peace.
    He enshrines the Name of the Lord in his mind.
    O Nanak, when the Lord grants His Grace, He is obtained.
    He becomes free of hope and fear, and burns away his ego with the Word of the Shabad. ||2||

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!
